    here goes nothing...



    City is a 1.2L car.

    The block L12A2 is an official 1.2L block by Honda.

    If it were to be a 1.3 then it should have this block, "L13A".

    They are just marketing L12 as a 1300cc for queit obvious reasons. And marketing it as a 1300cc doesnt really make it a 1300cc for godsakes. I dont know why people dont want to absorb this simple Truth. Its just strange.

    2 weeks back I was also confused whether to buy city or xli finally bought a brand new xli and extremelly happy with my decision. City is a small car as compared to rolla in all aspects. Well yes there is some thing fishy about rolla brakes but aaram say chalao

    If you want to make a 'practical' kind of decision then you should stick to Toyota XLI. Let me tell you that XLi is not that bad car as it is propagated.


    Any car can give bad results if operated/driven in a bad manner and without keeping in view the traffic rules and regulations and the road conditions.

    @redbull

    Its just Atlas Honda which has classified it as 1.3 to remain in competition with XLi!!...

    Elsewhere its a 1.2!!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    it because L12 was for that particular 1.2 market

    here if ur going for L13, u have to pay as much token as a 1.6 engine,

    1250 compared to 1296cc , its a 1300cc catogory for pakistan, thats how the markets goes.

    1246cc, An Official 1.2L Engine by Honda.


    Well buddy, iF Honda PK Markets it as a 1.3L Engine its queit fine Until And Unless they STATE iTS TRUE DiSPLACEMENT ON THEiR MANUALS/ WEBSiTES/BROUCHERS.



    Its a bluff Bro..... Wake Up! You Still have to pay the Same token as a 1.3L car!


    You are getting an engine for which you didnt paid. You paid for a 1.3L car, You Should get an L13 Block, no matter what... And what you get an L12.....ssshhh...! And You Still favour the Local Assembler!






    Edit (by me):- If someone further wants to know, just Hit this link; No use of starting it all over again.

    yup dont wanna start it all over
    per if u can call 1250cc a 1.2, i too can call it a 1.3L, same thing here and there
    honda atlas never promised u L13
    anyone who cares would open the bonnet and see wts in there

    btw L13 is 1340cc and doesnt come under 1300cc according to pakistani law. L12 stated by atlas as 1300cc too doesnt come under 1300 category :s , i wonder wts the token diff between 1.3 and 1.6L cars and wt city owners are paying.

    bashing each othr over 50cc seems like bunch of kids who just figured out few numbers...
