    Brother comparing the prices and features I would always suggest Honda City but as the specs are not out I can still 'suggest' the City 09.......but under my new self imposed boycott I would suggest you wait and not buy any car

    The prices are artificial and hence I will suggest you wait and buy when the prices are right. Otherwise your call.

    1st of all,welcome to pakwheels.
    now comming ot ur question,
    city 09 is much better brother.u ll see when it wud b launched,its more powerful nd wud hav much more options then gli(except abs i think).

    as ur a new user,i wud like to tell u that there is alot of debate on this topic nd specially honda vs toyota was is very common here. so next time before posting a topic like this one,u can use the search button nd find sumthing useful enough.
    bye

    Thanks for the quick response bros!

    I am not hopeful about the price. We should not be hopeful of any price reduction as long as uncle zardari remains our president.

    Even if the car companies are planning to reduce any rates then i am sure a call will go from President house to increase presidency share


    Another quick question is what do you think about City 2009 Manual VS automatic ? I have heard strange things that automatic cars are not successful in Pakistan ?

    Which one should someone go for in Pakistan ?


    Best Regards

    Shoaib

    well that totally depends on ur likingsnd the fuel ur gonna b driving on.if u want to convert the car to cng,then manual is better.if ur not into speeding then auto is for u.manual is for fun.plus it can easily b converted to cng.so it all depends on u.manuals also hav better resale.

    well as far as the resale is concerned it will effect it slightly otherwise automatic is good...you decide if it were not would you see so many automatic cars here including the local and imported models ??????

    City in both manual and automatic is ok as seen in the previous models!!!

    sir dont make ur decision in hurry, wait for city, when it comes then afterwards u can compare it with corolla in terms of price, options etc. At this time we only know about the shape of new city not more than that. Also the sales of cars have decreased 49%, may be companies make a rational decision and reduce the price in coming days.

    Dear shebi,

    First of all welcome to PW....I hope you enjoy your stay here and get to know all you ever wanted

    Well....talking personally I am a rolla lover So, I would always suggest for GLi..but one has his own thoughts and plans so act accordingly....

    I would suggest to wait for the new city, compare the two and make your own choice..

    Regarding the issue to auto gear cars, auto trans according to me is successful in Pakistan, but our roads and atmospheres specially in the remote areas are not suitable for such trans as they require some special attention which we fail to give

    Regards,

    I have just visited honda car dealer office in Islamabad. They told me that if u book ur city now then u would get it at the end of April as the new city is heavily booked for the next three months.

    He also told me about the confirmed specs so far that is

    1300 CC
    ABS breaks
    Other are common feature like old city except some few small enhancement.

    They are booking manual at 1157500 n prices are subject to change n if prices are increased or reduced then then either you have to pay extra or we would return in case of deduction in prices.

    How can anyone recommend a car that isn't even launched yet??
    Yes we know quite a bit about the City 09 already but all of us (i presume) have not seen it in person, obviously not sat in it , not driven it.

    In the end it is best you check both cars yourself (when the City is launched of course) and then decide.
    You're going to get nothing but a Honda vs Toyota fight over here.
    w0i dO p3oPL3 TyP3 L1K3 tH15 , or should i say , Di5?

    i personally would prefer Corolla over City.. (despite honda's claim of upgraded city to the Compact sedan class).. BUT my advice would be to hold back from the purchase as the way the prices have been unnaturally lofted in the past few months makes no sense.. what makes sense is that the same graph is bound to travel back to somewhere more acceptable than it is now.. rest is upto you.. ..

    btw wc 2 pws
    Bugatti Veyron is one of the all time best Super Cars in the World!!! It does everything better..

    well city 09 s gonna b a beautiful car !! but still no comparison with corolla ! except for small cosmetics tht may come in city , corolla is much much much better ! the shape of corolla is better , m sure the drive ll b better , interior is better ! both are decent sedans not meant for racing so 5 or 10 hp diff doesnt make city a better car !

    look at the pics posted in tht city topic ! compare the pics urself ! from back corolla looks impressive , from side oh my 100 times better front is also graceful ! whereas in city only front is impressive back and sides arent at all impressive !

    sir in case city 1.3 manual is priced 115700(Which is being speculated), its a fair price as compare to 1.3 Corolla GLI's 1350000.

    yeh GLI ll be 1445000 from 15th january, perhaps we cant argue at the moment coz the price of city we are quoting in 1157000, its not the confirmed price from Honda, only God knows what Atlas Honda ll turn up after this ridicules price increase from Totota and Suzuki. So unless it is confirmed by Honda that City 1.3L manual is in 1157000 my argument is invalid.

    City 09 is better in every respect, like shape, performance and value for money. I see that Rolla's price is increasing almost after every 2 days - How ever I am surprised about some comments by members, even the previous IDSI city was better than old GLI but people always picked on IDSI's underpowered engine and now since the new City has more horses, they say it does not matter :|

    Anyway one should simply compare the spec sheet and styling and then decide
