    Default Honda positioning City to compete with Corolla.

    Honda is now making Civic a premium compact sedan, positioning City to compete with Corolla.

    Corolla will no longer be in the same category as the Civic. This is one of the main reasons of the huge increase in the price of the Civic world wide.

    The next generation city will be a larger car, taking place of the Civic, with the same price tag it carries today.

    Civic has matured into a premium compact sedan, leaving City to rule the economy sedan market.

    Guys....this thread was not started for the sake of argument. Corolla is launched in Japan, take a look at the pics (toyota.co.jp) .It has conservative and tranditional styling, it may be faster, bigger or better than the Civic. But, Civic and Corolla are headed in different directions.

    The point is not that comparing Corolla with City makes one car look bad or vice versa. The point I was trying to make is that a shift is happening. Times are changing and we should be open minded about change.

    Look at how Honda is pricing the City. There is no Civic in India, they compete City with Corolla. But thats not to say we can't compare Corolla with Civic. But that is not how the manufacturers see this market.

    Corolla is clear winner in fleet sales in Pakistan. There is no way that will change with a 1.3 million Rs base Civic. A larger City has a chance to claim its share of fleet sales in Pakistan. That is what Honda is aiming towards.

    Ciao!!

    Just compare Corolla 1.8 VVTi with City 1.5 Vario STEERMATIC.

    And compare Corolla XLi with City IDSI.

    U will get ur answer automatically.


    In pak these both cars doesn't hav sunroof just like CiViC.

    If u want to compare the CiViC then compare it with PREMIO.

    I do not think it is an argument its just a discussion and everyone is showing their opinion or facts.

    One more thing to keep in mind. You started it, does not mean you can control it, its free forum discussions can head in any direction.

    corolla is a matured car. city is yesterdays talk. if the manufacturer says dat civic is evolved let them say dat coz its their product. i think even if honda changes da new city even then corolla and city can not be concidered of da same category.

    Just compare Corolla 1.8 VVTi with City 1.5 Vario STEERMATIC.

    The STEEMATIC option is in the CITY not in a CORLLLA even in a Japanese COROLLA X.

    And compare Corolla XLi with City IDSI.

    U will get ur answer automatically.


    In pak these both cars don't hav sunroof just like CiViC.

    We are talking about Corolla Vs City. Not Corolla Altis Vs City.
    Visit www.honda.com.pk & www.toyota-indus.com and compare City IDSL & Corolla XLI. You will come to know. If you still say that it can't be compared please provide proof.

    Why corolla Can't be compared to City? Please no Altis Talk. We are talking about 1.3 engine right?

    Its not comparing variants.several things have to be kept in mind when comparing two vehicles.

    1, Market Share
    2, Resale value
    3, Spare parts (cost and availablility)
    4, comfort
    5, etc

    if u even comepare their abse models only some ppl think that City has PW wtc and Xli doesnt well da chineese cars have them like cherry and Mlaysia's Proton.The maintaince cost of honda is very high as compared to toyota is low and apart from da oil chage and stuff it doesnt require that much. And about resale i dont think i need to say any thing

    @gamemaster,,, From your listed points, the imported cars falls back. It means Vitz can't be compared with Cultus. Cultus is a great car infront of it, right?
    Then mehran is better than Rolla, good market share, good resale, cheap spares, and available on any store.

    The style & features is what makes cars different, not resale values, or market shares.
