    and people here talking about tyre change, smaller tyres(with larger side walls) are more comfortable.
    Bro, I agree with you. But my point of view is same. Hard suspension has its own pros and cons. Civic even has hard suspension if compared with other cars. Any how, there is a purpose behind which we need to understand. Anyways, I am posted to Multan. Before Multan, I have also served 5 years in Gujrat and have been visiting Sialkot quite often. What I want to say is that there is no limit to perfection. Everyone complains about suspension. Swift thread was just an example. If you will ask me, I will also say that I am not satisfied with Civic suspension. We have very less options available and we have to live with it. Otherwise, our road conditions are too bad and we cant compare them with other countries. So manufacturers have to balance between comfort, drive, strength, road clearance etc...

    Sir buy what you like. Although I would cross out the JDM since availability of parts can be a big issue in small cities.

    So you are left with corolla, swift and city. Personally for the price tag, my decision would be between corolla and city. I would not go for a hatchback vehicle in that price range.

    but still you can drive a cultus on complicated speed bumps faster due to added ground clearence.

    I didn't went into detail but answered the question regarding comfort according to my experience plain and simple that swift is softer on bumps compared to city, I didn't bash the city or infact any car. I've used city myself for going and coming back from uni for almost a whole semester and love the way you can suddenly change direction in traffic easily unlike other sedans. there isn't any limit to perfection but it doesn't mean that one should get a something that isn't suitable according to requirements, we don't have many choices available in Pakistani market and have to do with whats available.

    whatever you do, make sure to go for the softtest tyre with good rubber. otherwise next 70,000 or so Kms, will become torture for you.

    Congratulations. I will not delve further into your decision as you have already made it. May Allah provide you with comfortable, safe and trouble free miles in future. Tyres are a tricky thing as 95% of tires in the market are smuggled and their safety is compromised. I have heard that Yokohama is available at dealers who buy from importwrs. Check the tires thread for info on those dealers. Kumho is also imported and sold by authorized dealers. Check their website for info.
