    yeah the car is great, if you get used to the looks. All you need to transform that car is some nice 15 inch rims, and you have the perfect car. Fuel econ. is great. Manual or Auto, its perfect. The interior is even better than the exterior. Some nice tricks inside.

    ya i totally agree with u CITY is a great car u just change the rims and get a chrome plated grilleand it looks awsome and the VARIO model has CVT(constantly variable transmission)that means no gear change just running at constant RPM therfore much economical unlike other automatic transmission the visibility is gr8 and due to its small hood it much easier to drive i have heard about a problem with the rear visibity but every thing else is top class and most of all the car doesnt look cheap.Baleno is the only competitor and i think v should not support suzuki by buying FACELIFTED 8 years old car

    honda is always a good choice and city is a very cheap perfect car we should always have to prefer honda on any other pakistani car specially suzuki baleno but the only thing city needs is 15" allowy.

    yea the manual city is 789,000, personally i think its a better buy over any other 1.3L car, especially XLi, or GLi, the only advantage the baleno has is the factory fitted CNG which has optimised timings for tht car

    The only problem with buying a city will be parts and that when you will sell the car after say 5 to 6 years, there won't be many buyers around. But in all other areas, city is a very good car.

    so thats makes u think HONDA has lower resale value can u tell me what happened to SUZUKI MARGALLA.New model changes it all and with a new model of BALENO comfirmed in india we can expect in pakistan in this year or the next one.
    the only problem baleno wasnt being given a new model was that it was doiscontinued in 2002 and no new model was introduced but now suzuki has the facelifted LIANA which will surely replace baleno

    I am an automobile dealer & I have used all the market cars throughly. City is excellent in every way as told by others but the only prob is that due to the position of bonnet you cant see the bonnet when u r sitting on driving seat, it is only prob & is very big prob if u r driving in some conjusted area, otherwise the car takes the crown

    Sorry High009 I didnt saw ur msg date, I just saw it in the main so I thought it to be a new one, Unfortunately there is no way to avoid the bonnet problem but all the world is living with that & when U'll drive the car from showroom to ur home then u will realise how it is & then if u think u cant bear the car then just sell it on ON price, right now I got 2 varios (black & charcol) to deliver to a company & I got them on 130 k own (that too with a lot of persuation). So this is the situation in Karachi.

    Honda City iz a good choice, but if u have a little more cash for an EXi, the problems im facing with my honda iz that itz not upto the roadz, i mean goin on 120km/h its swaying here and there on the road, its not stable though it looks pretty aerodynamic even though ive got good tyres. take a look at my city in my profile.
