    Let me clear everyone:
    TRIPTRONIC means that u have both the options in the car, i.e. Manual Transmission and Auto Transmission. U can normally use Auto Transmission and when u want some fun, then u convert to manual transmission and change gears manually. Only Honda City VTEC STEERMATIC has this option available in Pakistan and it has 7 Speed Mode Transmission(means it has 7 gears)

    CRUISTRONIC means that the car has Cruise Control system, which means that u can fix a speed at which the car will be constantly driven. This can be used only on Long Trips(as in Pakistan, u cannot drive at a constant speed at local roads). Crusietronic is term that is introduced by Toyota for Corolla(basically to impress people). Corolla is not Triptronic at all!

    @murti
    looks like there are some things u need to know about the japanese car buying norms.

    In japan when u wana get a car...u can go to the showroom and actually have an order placed for the way u want ur car to be...u can have many many extra options instead of standard trim car. Like ifu want a sunroof in the car...the toyota guys will have it instaled for u even if it doesnt come in its standard model
    Similarly u can even get ur seat fabric changed and select from a f..g big range of fabric available.
    so the guy here who claims he has an upgraded version really is right...some vitz do have a sunroof and its an original sunroof not an aftermarket one. They also come in 1.3l and 1.5l VVTi versions.
    Last but not the least...triptronic shift IS there in the vitz new shape in models 2007 and above but i have yet to see one in Pakistan. The new shape vitz has these gears P R N D-S-B, The D is a normal driving gear from which u can always shift into S even while ur in motion because they are side by side. In the S mode u gain a lot of pick but the fuel average goes down. The last mode is B and that is for steep climbs and tough spots wher u need one gear but lots of power. The triptronic one has a +- mode on the side of D which means u can directly shift into triptronic mode while in motion and a click to the + side will take the gear up while to the - will bring one gear down.

    i think they(others) call it semi-automatic instead of tiptronic...

    tiptronic comes in porsche Audi i guess...the word is licensed by Porsche and used in its vehicles, and those under its license.

    @hunnyahmed:
    The rights to the word "tiptronic" belong to Porsche. They came up with the first shiftable automatic (not the sequential gearbox)

    Nope- they call it Commandshift. Only a few companies call it "tiptronic" and they've probably bought rights to use that name from Porsche.
