    Default Purchase Liana or City

    I am going to get me a new car soon. I have to choose between Liana (RXI or LXI) and City (IDSL 1.3). Being no expert in cars, I request the valued members of the forum to help me decided which car I should go for.

    I shall be grateful if anyone could explain in detail the pros and cons of each car and advise me to make up my mind.

    While replying, please bear in mind that I am no expert in vehicles and my decision will be based entirely on the advice by valued members of this forum.

    Please also shed some light on whether City would be coming out in the same shape or there are any plans for the change.

    Regards

    Have no preference and that is the sole reason I posted this reply. I don't know which car I should purchase.

    If you want to go for a CNG vehicle, id suggest opting for Liana. If you want a tension free fuel efficient vehicle on petrol, you cant go wrong with the City. I personally like the city better

    Bhai, search the topics, there as been a lot of Wars between these two cars...

    Liana Won all the way... I would suggest you go to showroom of each and inspect both cars and decide for yourself...

    CNG is not an issue. Even if I purchase CITY, I'd be changing to CNG.

    I had discussions with many friends and 90% were in favour of City. Their main concern regarding Liana was:

    1. Not as durable as is City.
    2. Liana has less resale value than City
    3. City has good suspension as compared to Liana


    Please help me out

    @Mehmood bro,
    Let's put some light on your points..

    1.Not as durable as City..
    No doubt City is a Durable car, but Liana is not even a year old, how can anybody claim as such...

    2.Liana has less resale value then City..
    Suzuki has less resale then Honda... Lol.. you have got to be kidding.

    3. City has good suspension as compared to City..
    That's not true also.. the problem is the tyres Suzuki is putting on stock Liana... if one replaces it, it totally transforms the car, there is nothing wrong with the suspension.

    I have Liana since August 2006, Not a single problem till now..

    Since you are going to convert to CNG even if you buy a CIty then I suggest you should go for Liana. It has a factory fitted FF Cng which is thought to be an excellent system and the common view of people around here on Pakwheels is that Liana's drive on CNG is pretty good... so my vote goes to Liana...

    I btw am an owner of a city... three of them to be exact...
