    If you prefer jdm's then there is the Toyota vitz 1.3 and Honda fit hybrid 1.3. Aqua is 1.5. Mitsubishi mirage is also a nice hatch but it's a 1.0L I believe.

    My current ride is a JDM. It's my 2nd JDM but i must say that brand new V2 might b a better option than these JDMs with unknown history.

    i also buy V2 due to this point of view. any one is responsible for that if there should be any prob. its not a big thing any prob in a machinery. main thing is a services after sale. i think this time FAW dealers are more responsive because they are new in market and also V2 is a real value of money because they are not earning Brand name because they are establishing market in Pakistan. FAW also build a local assembling plant due to successful market of FAW-XPV.

    Both the vehicle are uncomfortable with third class resale value, you have gotten a good budget for vehicle purchase my suggestion you purchae Toyota Vitz 1.3 or Toyota Passo 1.3, Honda Fit Hybrid, is coupe and Honda Insight or Toyota Axio in Sedan

    I have swift and i've also drived V2. Swift is of much better quality and duarability. V2 seems to be chinese maal. Plastic used and door panels are of low quality in my opinion, if budget is not a problem Swift is the final option.

    My brother owns a FAW V2. I have driven it and it is better than Cultus, Alto and all other crap cars.

    Benefits:
    ----------
    Drive is good,
    Airbags, ABS, EPS and many other up to date features that you find in latest Europeans cars
    dashboard rocks,
    big luggage space,
    good leg space for both front and back pessengers
    3 years or 60000 KM dealer warranty

    Drawbacks:
    -------------
    Minor quality issues
    Lots of Back windows noise when driving at high speed
    May be resale is not good

    I think if you can afford Swift and fuel economy is not an issue, then Swift is a better option because it has better quality, good resale and it's a succesful car being sold for so many years.

    Otherwise V2 is good option if resale and minor quality issues are not a problem
    All the good things in life are damn expensive, fattening, sinful or already taken!!

    Sorry for jumping in late on the discussion, have been busy for the past few weeks. i will try to describe my own experience so you may decide impartially. I was in the same position as you are right now confused between Swift and V2. Finally decided for V2 in the end.

    So here it goes..

    My requirement was a hatchback with comfortable ride in mind since it would have to be used for the family. My cousin and a few friends owned swift and i have drove it as well. Amazing Car, Good quality.

    Checked out V2 after coming to a Pakwheels review of V2 after its launch in pakistan. Went to the showroom and it was just great, exceeding my expectations. I was of the same view "Chinese Maal hoga, Farigh Hogi etc etc". But to my surprise it was great. Didn't had a test drive but came to this forum and read the reviews and they all seem to agree that the drive was smooth and comfortable.

    So crossed my fingers and bought the car and its been a month now drove around 2k kms now. Till now my findings:

    Great, Comfortable and Smooth ride.
    Perfect for city use.
    Superb handling.
    Mileage is not extraordinary it gave me around 14.5 on my trip to lhr. And within city with modest traffic and speed around 80-90km its round about 12/12.5.
    Got into an accident(Truck slammed in from the side) but the body is strong and had just minor damage to rear left side fender and bumper. Went to the dealership costed me around 7k for the denting and painting and bumper repair.
    Dealership people are attentive and helpful. Parts are easily available through dealerships.

    Now the things that i dont like till now is the braking sound which most of the people faced but its intermittent and in no way affects the braking. Noisy cabin and ac fan. But thats a problem for you if you continuously drive above 100/110km/hr otherwise within city not a dealbreaker i must say.


    The major point in choosing V2 was that it would have atleast proper after sales support and since mostly new cars dont have any major problems for atleast a few years so why should i bother buying a CAR whose history is unknown to me(JDM). And chose V2 over swith because they both are almost the same cars so why should i bother spending my hard earned money on swift a good 0.4 millions extra for what just Good brand name and maybe just a higher quality interior. Thanks but no thanks. Why dont i use this amount for contingencies if god forbids any thing happens to my v2.


    In the end your decision should be about which car gives you more satisfaction when you drive it. if its swift then no argument will be good enough for you to buy a v2, and vice versa.

    Hope this might help you in making a decision.


    p.s: For swift i would've paid extra on registration and yearly tokens as well :p just saying

    Suzuki and reliable !? People hesitate to buy faw because of it's name but their vehicles are not bad at all. Easily comparable with Suzuki. I have personally inspected a Faw V2 and it's build quality is nearly as good as the swift if not better.

    I own both, so let me give you my experience.


    The swift is a better car, i have the 1.3 dlx manual (without the navi crap), cost me almost 1.4 million. To me thats a lot of money to pay for a 1.3L hatchback. but the car is great build quality, it has nice plastics all round, the sound deadening is better and all the other shabang that a university student should not give a crap about.

    The V2 is cost me 10.5, is virtually the same as a Swift, yes the doors are noisy, the sound deadening isnt as good the plastic is cheap.
    I think it has a better turning radius since its modelled on a vitz. the mirrors have indicators and it has front and back fog lights, company takes care of everything upto 50K km which is alot for someone with only city commutes. I think the V2 has more leg room. and i may get some abuse for this one , but i think the brakes are way way better then a swift.

    with all that said the V2 is a much better purchase, since i dont plan on selling mine for atleast half a decade. and though its primarily for my wife and new born. while the swift is under the use (read abuse) of my 21 year old university going sibling. the swift can be sold alot easier but that is never a reason why i believe people should buy cars.

    So if i had to choose it would definitely be the Chinese hatchback and not the suzuki.

    Good luck

    Hahaha... Did somebody said we can't trust chinese car durability??

    Meray bahi jan yeh china ki bike nahi UNIQUE 70CC or some JINAN crap etc. This is FAW V2 with excellent built quality. I admit there is some cheap plastic used inside but Ooo Boy don't think they have used anything cheap in body. V2 has solid body. Reading comments it seems like most of you never drove or own a V2.

    Moreover we should consider price tag. The real comparison is FAW v2 and Suzuki cultus and u already know which one is better V2 by a mile.

    Default Swift and V2 experience

    I have driven both of them and own Swift since 2011. Both are them are same almost. I found swift better in the way of reliability Suzuki has its parts all over Pakistan even small cities. fuel consumption average is 14-16/LTR. The only disadvantage of swift is 1328cc. and V2 is 1298cc. while sitting in both of cars, I felt relaxed in swift. I felt it more mature and its road grip is good. Swift engine is reliable and pick is also good. suspension of V2 and swift is almost same.

    Go for vitz 3rd generation. Far better than pkdm craps. 3rd generation vitz is too good. And very comfortable. You will love it. Test drive it. And then compare it. You will forget swift and v2
