    Default Suzuki Swift Vs. Honda Civic 04-05 / City 07-08 Purchase Option!!!

    Ok Guyz here is the catch. I was looking to buy a Honda Civic 04/05 or a Honda City 07/08 in good condition as my budget tops upto to a max of 1 million rupees. Now with Suzuki's latest Swift in the equation has opened up my choice window but has also complexed my purchase option. I can either go for a used:
    • Honda Civic 04/05
    • Honda City 07/08
    Or a brand new:
    • Suzuki Swift 2010.
    Ok guyz do the maths as they say and gimme ur views as i am currently indecisive between what to purchase...!!

    Civic without a doubt.

    And I'd pick Swift over City, unless you're getting a Steermatic!

    Totally agreed with Cylestyne.

    An advice though - when buying any car, buy the top of the line model. Get a VTi Oriel if you finally decide to buy a Civic.

    il stick wid Cylestynes coment.

    to add, if u wana go for a hatch back nd u have Vitz in mind Swift is a better option.

    City to Civic, Civic all the way if u dont have issue for buying a certain number of years old car.

    City is a gud car, but it has zero driving pleasure, the short shift is fun thou, abt

    Civics (i havnt drivn manuals, autos are jst pleasure the more u gas it the more pleasure u get on the steering wheel.)
    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.

    My advise would be

    City for the reason it fuel ecnomical...
    If you want to go for Swift I don't think it reasonable to pay 10lac for hatchback instead add more and buy car with trunk sedan atleast you have space in Trunk when you install cng in the sedan car...

    before making a purchase list down the requiremnts you need in a car. do not opt for anything due to its popularity in the market only. Now here is my anlysis:

    Your budget is 10,00,000 rs

    civic 2004-5 :
    pros:
    style, comfort ,image and performance
    cons:
    very high price tage, costly maintainance ,avg resale ,age of the car is 5-6 years old ,milage on the average is around 50,000 plus

    i strongly decline.

    ciity 2007-8 :
    pros:
    style, comfort ,image and performance ,very good fuel consumption , age of the car is 3-2 years old only,milage on the average is around 20,000 plus
    cons:
    very high price tage, avg maintainance ,avg resale ,

    i recommend.

    swift 2010 :
    pros:
    should be fast and responsive with a 1.3 ltr engine performance ,should be good on fuel consumption ,NEW CAR
    cons:
    Very very high price tage, avg maintainance ,avg resale ,style is not head turning, comfort not comparable with a sedan ,image is still a SUZUKI HATCHBACK.

    Strongly decline

    Suzuki Liana:
    pros:
    is pretty fast especially 1.6 Japanese and responsive with a 1.3 ltr engine performance ,is good on fuel consumption ,you can get a good car for around 6 lack, loaded with emenities including abs and ebd. low milage cars around 20000 km are easliy available, FACTORY CNG.Low cost maintainance compared to all sedans competing against it ,
    cons:
    avg resale ,style is not head turning but can be pimped if carefully studied, image is still a SUZUKI , Mechanics are afriad of this car and service centers ripp you off.

    Urge you to invest in this car, I if i was you id save 4 lacks and get this car in 6 lacks.

    regards

    Omaer

    1: if you want civic than go for vti oriel

    2: if you want city than go for Steermatic

    3: if you want hatchback than go for swift not other brands

    ------ if you want fuel economy and performance than go for swift becuz it has
    1.3liter DOHC engin which can easily beat i-disi city

    Comparing hatch with sedan is like comparing grapes with apples. Would basically depend on what u need. @CarSaaz has done a good analysis, and i would recommend that u get the City, if possible a Steermatic, since its got comfort, space, reliability, and would have been less used than a 04-05 Civic, and hence less maintenance required for next couple of years.
    The rule book is for guidance of the wise and obedience of fools.
