Thread: Math Question for Honda City Vario Vs Manual

1. Math Question for Honda City Vario Vs Manual

Guys i was planning to buy a honda city 2005 model. When i checked out the market rate i found out that City Vario (Petrol) is available for 650,000 Rs and City Manual (with CNG) 2005 is available for 725,000 Rs. I decided to make a math question to help me out in deciding as to which one is the better option?

Question)

City Vario 2005 (Petrol) model can be bought for 6.5 Lac Rs and City Manual (With CNG) for 7.25 Lac Rs. Now lets make the following assumptions:

1- Average of City Vario(Petrol) is 10km/Litre.
2- Average Cost of driving Manual City(CNG) remains constant at 4 Rs/ Km
3- Price of Petrol remains constant at 60 Rs/ Litre.
4- The driver drives 1000Km each month.

After how long (time in months) will the manual city (CNG) become a better option than a Vario (Petrol) in terms of the money spent on both cars?

Guys this question really helped me out in deciding which car to buy. I have solved this question through a mathematical equation. I want all of u to plz give it a try. See how good u r in maths :-)

Lets see how many of u are able to solve this applicative math question...

2. Guys i know it would be difficult for most of u but honestly speaking its not that hard. Lets c the aptitude level of Pakwheelers

3. 44 Months:-), (neglecting all other running costs).

One must start thinking to change car after around this period

4. Never ....

1. You wouldn't keep the car for that long
2. You'll drive more thinking it is cheaper and resuktantly spend more on repairs.
3. Your car average will change every now and then
4. Iqbal also planned a Pakistan .. his soul is restless since then.

5. 37.5 months :-)

6. only 1 of u has given me the right answer

Lets c how many other members are able to answer this question.

Yar when i found out that its going to take more than 3 years for a manual to become cheaper than i thought its better to get a Vario.

Iam waiting for more responses

7. Vario is da slowest... thing out on da Roads

8. saving is Rs 2/Km, so monthly saving is 2x1,000= 2,000Rs....price difference is 75000, so 75k/2k= 37.5/12=3.125yrs

9. 37.5 months is correct.. anytime after it you'll be on the plus side..

10. Both Mani and ocean have answered this question correctly. Yar i know vario is slow par considering karachi's traffic and the calculations which i have done through this question i believe vario is a better choice if the car is resold in less than 3 years. Aur waisa bhe i need a family car. Koi racing purpose ka lia thore la raha hoan gare.

I would go for Vario. What do u guys think which one is the better option?

11. in long run,cng is always more economical then petrol.so manual city cng wud b more economical.bcuz,the price of cng is less then petrol.even if the price equals,1kg of cng drives ur car easily for abt 15km in city,but 1 ltr of petrol wud get u max 11-12km for any car...!!!

12. any1 else interested in solving this question?

13. i have vario (2005) and it's giving me 13km/litre on average ...fuel consumption in rupees is Rs. 4.5/km..plus its not slow at all.. in any case if you want to speed up...the gear change to S is quite handy...though even at D you can easily be the fastest car in Karachi city roads.

14. For Khurem:
Thanks for providing me with the insight. If its really giving 13km/Litre than iam definetly going for it

15. i am enjoying my vario on Karachi raods :-)

16. Ocean Thats good to know
