    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

    For you suzuki swift DX is best because when you will put cng it will cost you near Swift DLX..There is much difference b/w swift and cultus. Cultus is 80s technology old car and swift is new car..

    Sir you can get only the base Swift for 1M.

    You can also get a 2008 2.0d Saloon, 2006 Belta A/T, 2004 X Corolla, 2006 Altis or 2008 old shape XLi in Karachi only.

    If I were you I would have searched for X Corolla or Se Saloon or Altis.

    Vitz is also good if you can live without trunk.

    Yes,But swift gives a very good average.If you do not drive ruff,it may give 15kms in city.On highways,it must give 16+.I would not suggest installing CNG in swift,It is very risky.The result will either be great or really bad.

    eg if I drive buy cultus for say Rs. 950,000 and it sells for Rs. 800,000 after 3 years, and Ive driven only 50,000 km, it means a cost of 3 Rs. per KM should be added to the average mileage per km
    on the other hand, if I buy a swift ay Rs. 1,100,000 and it sells for Rs. 900,000 after 3 years, and Ive driven only 50,000 km, it means a cost of 4 Rs. per KM should be added to the average mileage per km

    So in the above scenario, Cultus is better.

    Im looking forward to your reply
    cultus VXRi is around 900k at the moment , for the 2011 model
    and an under 50k mileage 2008 cultus is easily available in 7 - 7.25

    i myself have sold a 2007 bumper to bumper genuine scratchless cultus , in 660.

    bottom line :

    cultus has no design variation from its previous models ,(other than the truck wala lights) which most people are replacing. so its competition exists within its own model.

    SWIFT is a better looking new car , and would surely have better resale if you sell it after 3 years....
    as , there would not be an exactly SAME SWIFT 2002-2003 in the market to compete with it....when you intend to sell it off...

    i hope u get my point.


    but yet again , if i were you , i would have gone for VITz indeed.

    Things are not that simple my friend
    *3year old cultus for 8lakh, no way ... especially after 5year old vitz in market

    cultus is having high price tag,but the car is really go0d.i would prefer if u g0 for FF cng VXLi,not latest model but 2o09.which means u will get sth go0d in lesser price if u search a bit.new isnt recommemded IMO.swift is a luxury car when it comes that you are a student,buy it when u are on your own.
    mehran is go0d resale wise and parts are very cheap,but car itself is also cheap (cheap is used here in figurative meanings).
    alto is also a go0d choice but the rear has very less leg ro0m.best of luck

    thnx bro ,

    and for now , just focus on VITZ or on the SWIFT , these are the two cars that you deserve atleast if you intend to spend around a million , .....

    buying cultus is like u spend around a million , and then u pass by a same 2004-2005 cultus , which would have costed him around 500k... lol...

    thats a self FACE-PALM...!!

    On a serious note, Nowadays the market is tooooo much confusing, there is nothing to buy in the newer car segment below Swift,
    Cultus: Good Car, TOO costly...
    Alto: Carburetor based engine , 7lakh kharcho, 12" k tyre wali gari kharido, jis ma rear defogger tak ni
    Coure: Same as Alto
    Mehran: Completely useless for any educated person

    If you want to buy a 2nd hand car, then Vitz/Belta/City 05-06 are good options
