    Hmmmmm

    May be because of following reasons


    1-City Can't be used on Long Routes, it is only good for city usage (hence the name 'City')

    2-City got iDSI (Desi) engine with Majority of Plastic Components

    3-Xli is preffered where the car is to be used for 'long routes' like from Kalma Chowk Lahore to Gulberg McDonalds etc.

    3-City Got Powerful Windows while Xli got Powerful Engine. so people who like to have powerful windows instead of powerful engine preffer to buy 'City'



    Note: why haven't u posted this thread in 'Humar n Funn Category'


    Note2: NO OFFENCE TO ANY1

    Note3: hummy is very right, people preffer Xli......... not the city (coz they think xli has got better market, OWN,good resale, better looking, and it's Corrola "

    Im proud to say that im one of those Folks who chose a city over an XLI, reasons are listed as below:

    1) Back in Sept 04, there was a 8-9 month waiting on Xli, and 4 month wait on City, and wasnt in the mood of paying any Black OWN money (received car in Jan05)

    2) Found the city to be a better bang for the buck, as i was certainly getting more in terms of value. (Power pack and a very efficient engine)

    3) I drove both cars in a neutral state of mind. Loved the XLI's engine, but the cars comfort and drive wasnt impressive. City won my heart in those departments.

    4) It is my personally opinion that city is more spacious, with a huge trunk and spacious interior.

    Last but not least, i would like to conclude by saying that when i was buying a car, i bought what i liked, and which i thought would satisfy me in the long run. Besides every tom dick and harry and metro cabs folks have an XLI too, hence, i couldnt careless about resale. Im very happy with my car, and will not sell it any time soon .

    I don't know why people buy City over Corolla, but here is why I will always buy a Corolla over a City:

    It has to do with the status level of the car. Corolla competes with Civic, not City. City competes with Echo/Platz/Belta. City is a lower class car.

    I would much rather drive a completely stripped XLi than a loaded City just because Corolla has more status than City.

    I live in Islamabad. So people will understand the following question much easily (Others can replace words like Gulberg, Defence etc. in the following):

    Would you live in a 600 sq-yards house in I-8 or a 500 sq-yards house in F-6? Yes the 500 sq-yards house may be smaller but higher in status. Similarly, City may have all the "power" and "auto" crap, but it is a lower class citizen!

    @salman,

    you should know why people choose a city over an XLI , as per my explaination above

    besides that, im sure your XLI is a head turner, and people often mistake it for a BMW 7 series?

    Hello Bro i will go for city but if this car is mostly driven by some elder then go for corolla because it has mature look.

    City has technological advantage over corolla.

    @salmankhilji
    Sir - brother, (with all due respect) that's false sense of superiority. It's cursed by Toyota, they've been giving same chassis for 1.3L, late 1.6L & 1.8L engine. Only plus point in XLi is power & resale, but does it handle power & speeds?


    @huebleu
    CiTY is some 10 years technologically more advance than XLi.
    World's largest engine maker: Honda's most advance engine: iSDI, is far better Yamaha's power plant that's in XLi.

    About the power conflict, just look at my post here:https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply...umID!1~pw.html


    XLi makes it easy to suicide, Rolla drivers will understand this, just put a heavy foot on brake paddle while crusing at 150km/h... & you will go: 'bye bye', aazmaish shrat hai!


    XLi & 2.0D are a Unity flagships, they come either in black or white, now that's 'UNITY' no more colours, no differentiation, no ego... just go to the road & watch yourself, 85% of these cars are 100% similar: white, even Radio Cabs, isn't that Unity.

    Here, XLi has a BIG BIG advantage over CiTY, you can turn it to a Radio Cab, any day!


    Please my brothers, nothing personal here.
    PEACE ... & ofcourse: UNITY (lol)

    @salmankhilji
    First of all its messed up to judge people by where they live.
    And we are talking abt Xli over here -- glad to know it can compete with the civic . Doesnt even have power windows.
    It competes with the Mehran -- this is a fact -- competes to be the selling car in Pakistan and loses.
    Corolla Xli a status symbol--- shoot me . please. Like @ Akbar said -- every tom dick and harry has the Xli. Its a taxi for crying out loud.
    And its pretty sad tht u would buy an Xli to show off.
    Most ppl would go BMW , Merc or Porsche to be original.
    Those are status symbols.
    And the Xli is like a 2 sq house in a nullah.
    Btw MOST people would rather live in F-6 because it is a nicer area. Only creeps would choose it to think tht their Gods.
    And bhai - plz dont take any offence. im just making my point.
