    Default URGENT: Vigo or Tundra for daily ride?

    Well, not literally a vs thread. But I am torn between the two for daily use. Budget is 3.5 mi max. Which one for daily ride and why? Please suggest between these two only. I can get a 2012-13 indus vigo or 2007 tundra 4x2 crewmax within this budget. Some advice against tundra due to size. I like the size and the ride over vigo any given day. I repeat, it will be a daily ride. Mainly home to office n back. Outings twice a week including weekend. Family vacation all Pakistan tour once a year.

    Thanks.

    Been using new local vigo champ as a daily runner for past 6 months and no problem in it! If u are worried about it being underpowered then get it chipped and u are good to go....the only problem u face sometimes is parking nothing else...and sure it will b heavier on pocket then a car but still lighter than the mighty tundra...tundra as a daily runner dosent makes sense,size and economy would be problem...but it also depends on ur daily usage! Mine is about 60-100km daily

    Thanks all for the comments. I just checked a few indus vigos today. Might check a few more next week. Perhaps a couple of tundras too. If there are any direct sellers, please pm me.


    My daily usage would be 25 to 30km on average. Monthly around 1100 to 1300km or so.
    What is resale of Tundra 2007 and indus vigo 2012-13 a few years from now, in comparison.

    For a 1300 km monthly travel, keep in mind to bear 32-35k as fuel cost of Tundra or 16-18k as fuel cost of Hilux.

    I guess resale can't be foretasted accurately now. Tundra is getting famous year by year in pak so it might develop its good market and improve its resale value. On the other hand we know the fuel prices will increase further every year so it might effect Tundra's resale value negatively.

    I if would be in 2018 and would have the make choice between buying a "11 years old (2007 Tundra) + heavy on pocket vehicle" or a "5 years old + comparatively fuel efficient" , then i would go for Hilux.

    Tundra =A wild beast ... you need to feed it very well, can't take the beast everywhere as its heavy on pocket, huge in size.
    Hilux = A Pet .. it will not show you insane hunger you can take it to more places.. A daily ride.
