    Cool Owner's Club: Honda City Aspire 2013 1.5L

    Hi Guys,

    I thought all 1.5L Aspire owner's can come under one roof and share their opinions about this car and the unique engine type which has been introduced for the first time in Pakistan in ivtec. This will also provide a good reference point to standard City and Aspire 1.3L owners and help everyone make an informed decision to the age old conflict between Standard City or Aspire when it comes to new purchase.

    Areas of Focus:
    Engine Performance
    Entertainment System
    Navigation/GPS Performance
    Handling/Braking considering new Aspire is 1.5L
    and many more ..........

    All opinions and suggestions are welcome.

    Lets establish a general fact here that no ones taking the Aspire beyond 180km/h everyday, that's Civic territory, but the Aspire owns the 140km/h ~ 160km/h mark, it is as solid as any Civic out there and gets there as quickly as any Civic to those speeds and that's good enough for a car that 7 ~ 10 lac cheaper than a new Civic.

    I really fail to understand the knocking part because I personally have never experienced it maybe because I have a manual, not a big fan of PT. If some one wants PT I would suggest CVT.

    Of course you felt knocking Mr Hollywood, Islamabad to New York aur Paris ki copy hai na, Petrol changa, sarak changi, Gaddi changi, traffic changi... LOL.

    I bet there is anyone who ever crosses 180kph except for once or twice in a Civic. They aren't Formula cars anyway.

    The point here is that civic is a different league obviously, 160kph+ and it will rule the fast lane, but as far as initial acceleration is concerned, we're talking a full 2 car gap at the minimum.

    Brother 7-10 lacs cheaper ? are we talking about Aspire with Titan interior or 1.3 City.

    I got my City Aspire Prosmatec for 18.2 lac another 35 K for registration and 74K for insurance and tracker.

    Bought 9th gen Civic Prosmatec in October 2012 for exactly 20 lacs 50 thousand and at that time old shape prosmatec was available for 18.5 lacs new from dealership.

    Now I am regretting to let go the old shape civic.

    I do not know about the 140-160 KM/hr cruising but all I know is that I have not get rid of the knocking at speed below 40km/hr with AC unless is shift it from "D" to "2" and Honda 3S people are saying that it will be alright after 10K KM.

    Boss talk about prices at the arrival of the 1.5 Aspire, its a completely different scenario. but then again 1.5 Prosmatec isn't great value for money in my opinion, always a fan of manuals, and when I got mine for 1.625, no Civic was available under 2 Mill. and the fully loaded manual Civic was 2.1+ Mill add registration and insurance you get a 6 lac game don't we ?

    Within our extended family we've got 3 Oriel Prosmatecs within the last few months and all cost 2.6 Mill+ (all costs included) so if you got a 1.5 Aspire Prosmatec 1.8 Mill + you do the math!

    i have a 2012 city 1.3MT base version
    done 12000km.. still stock tyres
    did engine oil change (synthetic) from honda point and took it to phase 7 or 8 road .. it maxed 160 and DAMN the acceloration .. seemed like the speed dail was just eating up the letters
    50(2nd G)-90(3rd G)-130(4th G)-140-150-160
    at 160 i felt tyres starting to wobble so stopped.. however , i have touched 165 before
    1500cc would be a beast, specially with different gear ratios

    ... so what tyres should i get? 185/65 or 185/60 ?? i got yoko A drive in civic , and they're pretty good

    Umeed karta hoo k decision per afsoos nahe hoga aspire anay k baad. Never, kabhi bhi city chalai nahe so no idea of city performance.
    My expectation from this aspire is like civic in terms of driving pleasure and road grip

    salesman told that one of his customer getting 15km/l in city driving (manual) with ac on.

    Regards.
    feel sad, in contact with honda defence from last 2 days for my car delivery.

    Now honda says the delivery date of my car has changed from 5th to 26th august 2013.

    Saara maza kharab kar diya eid ka honda defence ne.
    Reason; technical fault in their factory has extended the production dates.

    Brother why are u comparing Aspire auto with with Civic oriel Prosmatec top of line version.

    Aspire does not have S/R, Airbags, Cruise Control etc.

    1.5 Auto was 1820,000 which is now reduced to 1790,000.

    Control price of Civic Prosmatec is 2,107,000 for which it is available in Karachi in white color delivery within 15 days time. That is a difference of 317,000/-

    2012 Reborn shape Prosmatec with less than 10,000 KM are easily available here for 1.8M.

    City is already bad value and I am glad to sell it at break even.

    Now I will buy Gli Auto for 1769,000 or either 2011 JDM Swift for 1.2M which are much better cars.

    Greetings!
    I've been thinking of getting a Aspire 1.5 Automatic for a while and trying to figure out how much money I'd have to shell out. So, how much money should I expect to pay over the base cost of ~1.8Mil? For registration and insurance?

    Secondly, are the stock tires okay, if it after markets are preferable than how much more should I keep in mind for that?

    Lastly, Is there something wrong with the city automatic? I have a manual car right now, and it's a pain driving in Lahore's traffic, hence I wanted to get a auto..

    ATTENTION ALL ASPIRE OWNER's: There are two important parts missing in the car which need to be added when you get your, its an added Rs. 2000/- but necessary,

    1) Add Under guard/cover panel for the engine to save it from water destroying your engine, this cover comes installed in PT but not in manual.

    2) The A/C Air/Cabin Filter is not present in Aspire, you have to buy it separately and these idiots don't even tell you when you get your car.

    3) When I got my car it's alignment was out and all wheels needed balancing so get that done ASAP.

    HONDA NEEDS TO GET-UP FROM THEIR LOUSY ***!!

    Now I will buy Gli Auto for 1769,000 or either 2011 JDM Swift for 1.2M which are much better cars.
    That Civic doesn't have CRUISE CONTROL nor factory SAT/NAV nor Leather Seats which are for added 116,000/-, Aspire has these standard, Civic has more registration cost and more Insurance cost so in the end its a 5 Lac cost difference easy, and for any self-made guy finding that extra 5-Lac is not easy!

    So stop adding BS features to Civic and reducing reborn-Civic prices how you feel like just to prove your point!! Now go buy your Rolla ......

    Secondly, are the stock tires okay, if it after markets are preferable than how much more should I keep in mind for that?

    Lastly, Is there something wrong with the city automatic? I have a manual car right now, and it's a pain driving in Lahore's traffic, hence I wanted to get a auto..
    It is 90k approx for registration.

    Stock tyres are oky but not good

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with City automatic but in that price range, people mostly prefer 1.6 Gli auto !

    It is my personal opinion also. City Aspire PT price crosses 1.9 million which is just too much for a 'City' badge ! If you have that much money with you, go for Gli automatic special edition !

    ( Toyota has recently reduced the price of 1.6 Gli auto as well )
