    City as it will be new and not a hatchback. Good engine, ABS and definitely doesn't attract the thiefs.

    It is not that comfortable as a corolla but ain't that bad.

    My advice, go for it. Rest it's up to you.

    Lot of ppl complaining about stiff suspension of City. Is it too worst ? Or can be improved by changing tyres?

    City all they way.

    @ defender 780
    If you have opted city after having corolla for few years than yes city suspension is "BIT" stiff , but its not like you are sitting in a pathetic sedan. Changing tyres will also make it bit more comfortable.

    My suggestion is to go for a new car. Depending on your family size, City might be a good idea. Of you drivr alone, Swift is a pleasure to drive amd smaller in city traffic.

    City suspension is hard for good... Corolla soft suspension has its pros and cons. Same goes for city. Similarly civic suspension is harder than Grande but it doesn't mean Grande is all the way better than civic. Either buy City or Swift. If you buy city, change tyres to soft ones and if it doesn't serve the purpose then I will tell you a technique for seats and they will be just like corolla.

    My cousins aspire had the same issue. So at last we had to compromise the leather seats. We bought seat covers. And we inserted 1 inch foam as per seat cuttings. Now the seats are as soft as any other car.<br />

    Keeping the car for 3/4 years, your traveling route is clean.

    You have a decent budget, again keeping car for 4 years means you are looking forward to have reasonable resale too.

    I shifted from 06 Cultus to 2015 Corolla and I will suggest you the same, the current corolla for next 4years will be a safe investment too.

    All the best.

    LOL -- You are right!

    MashAllah kool ride bro. But new GLI will cost around 2 million. I can max spare 1.7 M bro. New corolla is far far better than CITY in every aspect but 1 lac rupee own money and hot cake for snatchers are the reasons for keep me away frm this.
    Anyways thanks for your valuable input 👍🏻👍🏻
