    Default Which 1300cc car in Pakistan has the best Handling/Road Grip

    I recently got in to an argument with a fellow Pak wheeler over handling of Second Generation City Vs. Suzuki Baleno & Corolla Indus.

    What do you guys think? Which car handles the best in 1300cc class?

    From the above cars,

    1) I havent driven indus Corolla but have heard it has the finest suspension in its class (for pakistani roads). That doesnt means its grippy.

    2) City, 2004-2008 (second Generation) Has the worst road grip of all then that off any other car avalible in Pakistan. (I have 3 and im not being bias)

    3) Baleno has the finest suspension and the finest road grip, a) its a very low car, b) It has a independent rear suspension, Baleno is what you call "road se chipak ke chalti hai" even if ure at speeds over 120 km/h

    4) We have 2008 Gli (2002-2008) Model, I drove it around 160km/h (makran coastal highway). And it felt as if it would turn upside down any moment and was flying.

    5) The new Corolla 2008-2012, maybe grippy ive managed to skid it on a steep turn, but it came back to its place rather then going outa control. (imeant, i tuk a right turn, the car cud go left from the back, but it came in a straight line, Cutting is still not fun in this car.)

    6) Civic on the other hand isnt 1.3L or else on my book its on the top. (when vre talking about the suspension)


    PS: All above cars on General tires. (that ive driven)
    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.

    *Acceleration - Slowest 1.3L car available in Pakistan.
    *Braking - So so. Not bad either.
    *Handling - Handling is just fine.
    *Maintenance - It's a Honda. So it will be lil more heavy on maintenance.
    *Km/l - In city. 14-15km/l. and on highways. 16 - 17km/l.
    *Ac of this car is good.

    Pros of this car - Very comfortable. No other car matches to the comfort level of this car in its class.
    Fuel consumption is also good.

    new shape ivtec city handles very well brakes very well due to its VERY stiff suspension. softer suspension cars are not maneuverable. instead of names, people please define your statement that WHY?

    im not sure about the new swift but im sure new city takes the lead! even with 175 sized pathetic euro star tires, it felt easy to control t on 185km/h on motorway... it felt much much easier then what i had expected! now those who said corolla, COME OOONNNN....
    best handling almost always means harder suspension. and only city has it in the 1.3l category...

    sir g proove your statement.i think new city is even lower than old one 97-03 and wider with more aerodynamic shape + more stiff suspension so it shd hav more grip othrwise explain.have u driven both??? as i hav driven city neo97 which is similar to exi or better.but i dint find diff in both in terms of grip.if new city has not more grip then it is same but not less

    Never heard this even from the most biased corolla fans.....
    now to the topic... In my view, current city has best road grip in 1.3L category.

    i wish if u once had a chance to drive the GM1 city, ill say this new city is rubbish but its a gem when it comes to handling, breaking, pick and AC followed by fuel consumption.

    ever heard of Formula1 ? they are manufactured more or less in a way a space shuttle is made. why do they somersault? diana died in one of the safest cars on planet, S class is unsafe? give me your COW rola and ill show you how to do james bond KALABAZI! secondly i dont understand what made you write this "jahan jahan road hai wahan ap ko Mehran aur corolla zaroor nazar aai gi" what this statement of yours that mehran is more than honda has to do with HANDLING as asked by the O.P? if you consider us your friends you can share it with us!

    by the way to make you happy ill admit new city is very unsafe as it lacks the front, rear and doors safety beams with very low quality plastic dash and plastic door trim, to cut the cost, even the trip meter is just one as it was in old khyber. your corolla wins here!

    Don't fight Boys.

    I own EXIS, but i had a chance to drive the new city around M2 and i think its faster and holds well on the ground.

    Corollas after indus lack grip and are slow. (1.3L) . Balenos also hold well but i personally feel much safer pushing exis over baleno or corolla.
