    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

    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
    Hmmm .. you are referring the same point I have been considering.

    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
    Yup, im confused too. Actually we just sold a city '06 .. and now lookng to replace it

    You made a serious mistake,
    You sold your car without knowing what to do next?
    City 06 should be replaced by City2011, Gli2011
    What are you thinking while replacing a city witha cultus?

    We already have a new City, used by my father.

    So we sold the old city as a car for my use was needed to
    Old city was sold because it was automatic, on petrol and its engine needed a major overhaul

    Yeah, that is what I fear most, it might not be a good investment decision, but the current devaluation in currency may result in Cultus' price being increased similarly in the future . . . . .

    Mileage on Petrol,
    Cultus 14-15km/l
    Swift/Vitz 1L 12-13km/l

    Mileage on CNG
    Cultus Alto have good,
    No CNG in VItz
    Hope for PS to launch Swift FF CNG Soon,
    PS = Idiots, Cz if they launch FF CNG in Swift, It might outsale City, Cz Petrol is sooo high nowadays
