    As far as I've noticed, Honda has started doing those things that Toyota here in Pakistan do.

    Like with corolla, car shown in the brochure and in commercial's is the one which is International model.

    went today to Honda Classic for a comprehensive review of the City, here is my version:

    - Exterior: Amazing!!!

    - Engine: Amazing!!!

    - Interior: .......................Ahem! Ahem!!! Cough!!! Sneeze!!!! - Yaar the quality is awful!!! What has Honda Done, I guess they have taken some tips from Pak Suzuki on how to save money and increase profit margin - But Guys it is not City's fault, we all know that all the recent comers like new rolla, civic and city have taken a beating coz of the price and bad quality
    Hail to the King Baeeeebay!!!!

    Yesterday in the morning I saw a white city and I wasn’t impressed especially because of the interior but then I went to Honda point and saw one in black and it was looking sleek and hot! I liked its exterior but the interior is another story. Why wouldn’t Honda put some silver color trims on the doors like the Thailand version is beyond me, It wouldn’t have made any difference in the cost and would have brightened up the otherwise dead looking interior.

    Then came the price! well many before me have commented on this but I think considering the current market the manual is perfectly priced as it is around 90000 cheaper in Lahore then the GLI with same specs(+- some). The auto though is very expensive but if you look at its competition its still the cheapest auto in the class.
    The motor is the best part of this car and I found some cool technologies under the hood that should make driving this 98Hp car as a daily driver a zippy affair.

    I have booked an auto and have decided to keep it rather than selling it since if you have to buy a brand new car these days this is the best option (though in normal circumstances this car deserves no more then 11 50) I reconsidered GLI but having an auto tranny covers for the shorter dimensions and the overall package is better for me. I might have gone for a GLI if I was to get a manual.

    I am getting it from my company and so I have to get a new car otherwise I would get a used reborn civic or a CL7 for this price. Anyway I will post a comprehensive drive review as soon as I get my car. I will putting 205/50/R16’s on it (calculated size to keep suspension and speedometer in OEM calibration) and a touch screen DVD to liven up the interior.
    rev hard or dont rev at all!

    @sheraz bhai, there u go, u said it for ur self, the company is buying the car for u, no-offence but no sensible man wud throw his money for this car.

    and the silver paneling, forget the thailand walli city, even the older GEn2 City had thoose...

    Xli has them.. Liana has them, and City is stepping one step back, dekho its like jub ap gari lelo ge its the inside ur gonna c, and be in daily, if u dunt lyk it kya faida.

    and u jst compared it wid a XLI and GLI, even after looking at the car, so yar em sorry its no where near to thoose,

    Corolla k samne its jst like a Cultus infront of City....


    So theres No chance that this wud sell as the older cities did in comparision wid Xli.

    NO OFFENCE.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    @all
    i'm not sure if you noticed but i had already commented on the city before it's official launch, can't tell you how but what i can now say is once again i'm thoroughly disappointed with what honda is offering. on one of the other city threads i predicted it was going to disappoint and it did, which sucks since i was in the market for a small car for the house,.. and i got grilled for saying it'll be bad,.. guess what i was right again

    Honda had a great chance of giving us a world class small car but instead they are offerig a stripped down pile of garbage and are demanding more money for it!! so for now i'm going to continue on my crusade against local cars and will stick to my imports.

    personally i think the steermatic is a better car than the new city (except for looks)

    Verdict: (N)
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    Dear Members,
    The price is a total rip-off. I suggest we make an organization "Pakistan Vehicle Consumer Association" and tell the Automakers to stop robbing the people. Imagine, a lowly featured Corolla, City etc costing 12 lac or more. And Altis, Civic costing 17 lac or more. Automakers have a total monoply with profit percentage more thn 300%. They are not even doing any R&D, just assembling the cars. Surely they will give a dollar rupee mumbo jumbo. So lets boycott the new cars and make PVCA and demand reasonable prices and not rip offs.
    We can get following cars with $15,000:
    Corolla (with loadsful of features)::: http://www.carprices.com/carresearch/TrimsBuild/year_2008/make_Toyota/model_Corolla/confid_carprices/
    Civic (excellent features)::: http://www.carprices.com/carresearch/TrimsBuild/year_2008/make_Honda/model_Civic%20Sedan/confid_carprices/

    Join the Cause.....God Bless U All

    Atlas has just dug its own grave.

    At 11lak 50k (which was mentioned before) they could have still given the Gli some good competition.
    Even that price is high but 13lak + is just ridiculous.

    I really don't see too many people choosing the City over the Corolla.

    in my opinion anyone who buys the new city and corolla are just proving that they have more money than sense.

    they have the power to make these manufacturers offer more "toys" AND lower the price but in order to do that they have to use their buying power for good instead of begging these morons to sell them this overpriced and under spec'd garbage.

    ^as buyers we can control all of this. dealers are asking a premium for garbage nowdays only to increase their profit margin,... all we have to do is stop buying for a while and they'll start lowering thoer prices and begging us to buy a car from them instead of the other way around.

    even i'm looing to buy 2 cars for my house but with the current situation i'm sticking with what i have, i'm in no rush, these people survive on the money they make from us, they HAVE to do what we tell them of they wnat to survive.


    @all
    at the current extortionate prices your car (whatever t may be) is going to be better value for money to keep and use for a little longer than any high priced import or local car.
