    Lightbulb Which version of Cultus is best?

    Brothers I am looking forward to buying my first car inshAllah and the car that seems best to me is a used Cultus. I have a budget of around 6 to 6.5 lacs and need to know which version of Cultus should I look for? Which version is best in overall comparison? I can increase my budget if needed.

    Also, for a first timer, is Cultus the best option or should I go for any other car? Let me mention here that I will learn to drive on this car and have no prior experience of maintaining a car before.

    Let me also mention that resale value is very important as I want to upgrade to a bigger car as soon as I can drive well enough inshAllah.

    Please give your suggestions and tips.

    Thanks!

    Aren't the VXL versions best? They're fully loaded. What do you think?

    vxl is the fully loaded model having power windows,power steering, and rims,, but its resale is not as good as vxr,, vxr dont have these features but sales like a hot cake,,

    What is the reason for that? Is there any problem in the VXL versions? Also, what is the difference between the following VXR versions:

    VXR
    VXR EFi CNG
    VXRi CNG
    VXR EFi
    VXRi

    It would be great if anyone could tell the main differences between all the different versions of Cultus.

    there is no difference is the resale of any variant of cultus thing is that vxr is cheaper than vxl thats is why people prefer buying vxr thAt it if u get vxl is ur price better go for it only powersteering cost atleast 15k(aftermarket) rims will cost 20k as they are original and if u want to run it on CNG better go for carburetor one

    Thanks bro. That's exactly what I was thinking too. Installing all these things separately will cost more later on. By the way, what are the advantages of having power steering? Considering my needs do you think Cultus is the best choice?

    Vxr is steering pretty much hard specially if u add Alloy rims along with wide tyres
    If i were u i would have gone For indus corolla as u can get a good corolla in 6.5 -7 lakh but it really worth it and u will have an advantage of deki as well and toyota is toyota plus parts are pretty economical too and last thrice than suzuki

    Thanks for your input. According to my research I will get a very old version of Corolla in this price range. Buying a 10+ years old car doesn't seem right to me.

    You're right, Cultus does look like a 1992 car but my main concern regarding buying a 10+ year old car is that it's more likely to be mechanically unfit and can be harder to maintain, specially for someone with no experience of maintaining a car before. Thanks!

    I completely agree with you brother, I would never buy a 10+ year old car. Do you think buying a VXR and getting power windows, rims and power steering etc installed separately would be a better thing to do? Also, what are the main benefits of power steering? Thanks alot for your input.

    in your budget, you can find a clean 2006 vxr cng version in mint condition easily, and cultus maintenance is very very easy.
    i have kept both indus corolla and cultus and i would suggest you to buy cultus as it will easily be found in mint condition whereas finding a clean indus corolla is not an easy thing at all.

    jdm alto and vitz spares are far more expensive than those of cultus
    besides, these japanese cars are problematic on cng as their engines are designed to be run on petrol

    Thanks for your suggestions. You are right. I have not been able to find a clean VXL version in my budget so far but I have found a couple of very clean VXRs. Can installing power steering, power windows and central locking on a VXR be problematic? How much would these features cost?

    How much difference will power steering make in driving compared to no power steering? Someone had mentioned in one of the posts that having allow rims without power steering can make Cultus steering harder. Is that true?
