    Question Want to buy a brand new car - suggestions needed

    Aoa

    Im going to buy a new car in the coming week, I will use the car for travelling inside Lahore, and once or twice a year for inter-city

    Consumption, maintenance cost & resale value are the main issues to consider as Im a student.

    Price range is around Rs. 1,000,000

    Options in mind are
    • Mehran
    • Alto
    • Cultus
    • Swift


    Looking forward to your suggestions with reasons

    I had cultus for 3 years and now i have swift and believe me i don't now even want to sit in a cultus. Hell of a difference, it is like comparing corolla with mehran. Everything from build quality, drive, pick, style, shape, comfort no comparison.

    Thats great, what about resale & consumption (both on petrol & CNG)?

    Ill suggest Swift, If you can wait for a month I guess they will eventually launch FF CNG Swift,
    I wont suggest cultus Its a Good Car, But 1 Million, no way ....... No way
    Vitz is also an excellent option only if you find a clean piece, or Its going in to be a pain in the $$

    That will be great, but isnt Cultus better as it has better mileage & resale? This was claimed by a rep at one of suzuki's authorized dealers

    Sir,I strongly suggest you go for swift if you can afford petrol.Swift gives a pretty decent average on Petrol.

    Reason:Cultus is not at all worth 950k.Swift DX is the right car for you as it suit's students.It has a sporty shape with a great powerplant.Drive Cultus And Swift.There is h*ll of a difference.

    Cultus has a efi engine, Swift has MPFi, So it has better mileage,
    Swift has 1.3L DOHC ,
    Cultus ma kia ha yar? Guzara gari ha, 13inch General tyres, Swift Has Bridgestone R15 , , Feel the difference,
    Buy a swift or a vitz in excellent condition.
    Coming to resale, Cultus was for 6Lakh vxr in April 2008, CONFIRM my cousin bought for 585k ex factory at that time,
    100% same car today for 1million, thats why people say it has a good resale, cz its exfactory price has almost doubled and they can sell it for more,

    What about of my main concern of mileage? How much difference in terms of Rs per day it will be if I drive 50-60 Km/day on a Swift Petrol and Cultus CNG

    I have heard that CNG is also being fitted in Swift, what about that option sir?

    Mileage will hurt you ,
    Dont go for aftermarket CNG unless you know alot about it,
    Suzuki will launch Swift CNG anytime soon, month or 2
    Cultus has good CNG average , , ONLY +point, but again 1million for a cultus Not worth it dude,

    because ur a student, obviously require less space so alto is a small car which you can take almost to every part of the city and have a free mind. it also will consume less gas and parts will be cheaper. not forgetting that cultus is too expensive nowadays.
