    This car was DBW. It comes with VVT-i technology with DBW. Although experts will be better able to tell you in detail.

    driven both the old model had instant rpm response while the new one lags...it means there was a wire which pulled the throttle...still wait for the experts

    Just for the sake of increasing knowledge.....The new City is also DBW; its response is much better comparing to new GLI...why?

    Is this just because GLI has heavier body and its engine is comparatively underpowered? Or GLI's ECU is not well programmed?

    its not abt how well programmed an ecu is...gli is luxury, family, and a ship with a electric shaver motor.
    city is sportier, ivtech new technology, nimble,agile maneuverable, for youngsters,hard suspensions etc both are diff leagues bro
