    Default The Arch Rivals Series #1- Baleno 98 vs City 98

    I have started the Arch Rivals series... here we will compare any two cars which were direct competitors to each other. They shared pretty much the same looks, specs, features, price tag & same engine category. Based on our experiences, as many of us must have.. discuss the pros n cons of these cars...

    The first competition will be Baleno 1998 against City 1998

    BALENO

    The Arch Rivals Series #1- Baleno 98 vs City 98 -543576


    The Arch Rivals Series #1- Baleno 98 vs City 98 -543577


    CITY

    The Arch Rivals Series #1- Baleno 98 vs City 98 -543578


    The Arch Rivals Series #1- Baleno 98 vs City 98 -543579


    so lets go on...
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    never liked the 1.5 NEO City , will take a 1.3 Exis City over a baleno any day...
    dunno abt 1.5 NEO hp figures but the 1.3 one produces somewhere around 95HP...

    G16b( Around 100HP or so ) in baleno is pretty good as well , since i own the same engine with an aftermarket carb , its a pretty rev friendly engine..!

    the honda city engine was D13B4 i guess, someone please confirm. while the baleno use to have G13BB

    the baleno's G13BB has electronic MPFI fuel injection, generating 56–59 kW (75–79 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 104–115 N·m (77–85 ft·lbf) at 4,500 rpm, and was used in Suzuki Baleno / Esteem from 1995 to 2000

    not getting much info about the D13B4 used in city

    Just sold my 1.5 Neo model 98 this Sunday.... My personal experience was gr8 wid the car... Smooth drive ample space and never gave me any kind of prob.... it had done 250000 km but everythin was in gud shape and working... Acceleration and speed were also gud... just didnt like the back much (00-03 shape was much better) front was sporty
    Havent driven a baleno so far so cant comment but City was a realy gud drive that i can tell 4 sure !!!

    PS : Neo was efi the one 1.3 was carby

    so according to the comments so far, it seems both cars were equally good and its hard to decide which one is better among the two
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron
