    Default Toyota Corolla 2008 vs Vitz 2009 - Confused

    corolla Gli 2008 (excellent condition) in 900k (my cousin's friend is selling this car)
    Vitz 2009 (excellent condition) - still searching for it ...
    Budget - 900k - 950k

    I want you guys to suggest based on below points..

    1. Maintenance cost.
    2. Parts availability
    3. Petrol average.
    4. CNG support (if required i'll install later on)
    5. Resale.

    Please also confirm what should be the price for corolla 2008 which is in excellent condition.
    P.S. Currently I own a cultus 2003...

    Thanks ..

    Go for Vitz, you will never regret your decision.
    Although, maintenance is quite costly and bit tricky.
    Resale is also good but corolla's nowadays sells like hot cakes.
    CNG is not compatible with Vitz but corolla is fully compatible with it .
    Parts availability is not a problem for both car.
    Vitz has good fuel average if maintained properly.
    But keep in mind that the drive and road grip of vitz is awesome, and vitz is also loaded with other electronic gadgets which corolla lacks !

    I have heard that it is not easy for every mechanic to work on Vitz .. I live in maymar and there are no expert mechanics nearby ..

    as far as parts availiblity goes you only have junkyard, although you'll be able to find everything you need mostly, all parts will be used and in a deplorable state compared to brand new parts. good luck trying to import parts and then paying the bill which will come twice as much as a corolla. so just for parts reason alone i wouldn't get it but otherwise its a very nice car in other aspects.
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

    Yes of vitz, of the requirements you mention Corolla ticks more of them, vitz is a nice car and better drive experience but the priorities you have asked for Corolla serves them better.

    Corolla wins here. If you find one cheaper then vitz its good. PS: both cars manage around 10-12 km/l on petrol. Corolla .ight get better mileage being manual. Vitz is more on the luxury comfort part in the comparison models.
    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.
