    Default Toyota Belta or a Honda City (a buyers prespective)

    I searched didnt actualy found a City/Belta thread, (i dont count Corolla as a citys competitor to me its a bigger sedan)

    As we all know the economic conditions of the country as soon as one plans to buy or comes close to buying a new car the car prices go up.

    Ive been thru the same situation initialy had in mind a Corolla Gli, (we need a power pack car)

    as the prices keep going up up and up, Corolla seems a dificult option City is the next big thing but to me Honda cars seem fragile (nazuq).

    So i considered that a JDM used Belta 1.0L could be a better option in lesser price.

    Engine size isnt a real big issue fomme neither is Citys boot a real requirment for me. All im looking for a is a trouble free car that wont bug me for 3-5 years minimum.

    I curently have a Suzuki Baleno (2005) and JDM used toyota Vitz 2002,
    a Corolla Gli (2008), A Civic Vti (2004).

    The Vitz has been the best (trouble free) car ever owned mashaAllah. And the best value for money too.

    So for me going for a JDM car seems an ideal option. Currently were going to replace the Baleno for another car,

    Toyota Belta

    Prices : i think one can find a 1.0L version 2006-2008 for 10.5-12 lacks (top of the line versions) (clarification required)

    Car sizes
    Length4,300 mm (169.3 in)
    Width1,695 mm (66.7 in)
    Height1,460 mm (57.5 in)

    Honda City
    Prices manual tranny (Rs1315,000)
    Auto trany (Rs.1446,000)

    Car sizes
    Length(mm)4,395
    Width(mm)1,695
    Height(mm)1,480


    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.

    ^ i intend to keep it on petrol, have been using the Gen1 Vitz since 2006, nothing major required, rest all parts used and brand new can easily be bought, resale thats not a real important factor for me.

    I dont wana stand in the middle of the road (suzuki)

    I dont want key makers messing with my cars door locks and ignition (City/Civic/Corolla)

    And im looking for some what value for money

    Ive driven 1.0L Belta and its QUITE underpowered. Drive by wire adds cherry on the top by again slowing down the accleration. And after 130 kph the sound of the car changes and it sounds like it is struggling between life and death.

    @airomex
    Ahan well ive asked some friends to arrange me a test drive for the belta, as i realy need to see how is it underpowered, we used to have a JDM Sunny i guess thats 89 model, even that was a 1000cc Sedan car. (but manual tranny)

    my average speeds are 60-80km/h, at max 100-120 km/h, its going to be a family car a daily driver, nothing fancy

    Find a 1.3/1.5L belta. Excellent AC performance and all.

    1L Belta will behave like a mehran in summers especially when parked in sunlight.

    then 1.3 belta will be good for u as said above! ............just a suggestion: i think new swift will be a nice/trouble free car, as it will be new it will going to be rough and tough!see a brand new car is brand new!it will just act the way you treat it!the M13a engine is not the same as liana had,its head is redesigned and according to its owners it also works fine on cng! its not like cultus,alto,liana etc!its just a suzuki emblem which is creating a prob : P

    if at all u decide to go for a hatchback, look for Toyota IST. The best JDM toyota i have driven. Much better than belta/platz/vitz.
    Between belta and city... I dont knw its kinda hard to suggest. Test drive both n then decide. Also ask from owners what they think abt the cars. whats the mileage/maintenance/drive like.... That otta help u decide.
