    Default Honda Civic iVTEC - M/T

    I am considering to buy Civic iVTEC M/T (Entry level Civic); I am surprised to know that there is no SRS in this whereas Altis M/T (Entry level Altis) has (Source: Honda | Pakistan | CIVIC | Specifications) I visited Honda 3S dealer; they didnt had this variant in display. Can someone confirm this?

    How you guys rate this variant especially from the resale point...I am intending to keep this for atleast 3 years

    This version also doesn't has side mirrors with integrated turn light; not that big deal; but curious; can I replace them with VTi Oriel one? If yes; any estimated cost?

    There is no keyless entry; I heard that keyless entry mechanism is built in all Civic; its just they dont give you the special key and it can be bought seperately? If yes; how much it would cost me?

    Lastly; how is its ground clearance comparing to Altis? The slope in my house' drive way is quite steep; Altis climbs it up marginally; any suggestion how to resolve this issue from those who faced similar situation?

    Altis A/T to me is more tempting than Civic Prosmetic due to its tiptronic. But I am bit short of budget from getting new Civic iVTEC Prosmetic or Corolla Altis A/T unless I keep my car unregistered for 2-3 months that may be too risky

    Having said that i would also like to advise to you that if you travel in rushy areas a lot, then get the pros, otherwise if you have a driving route where traffic is moderate or sometimes more than that, then manual is the car for you since you're going to buy it brand new, and its your personal car; auto civic is also a joy, but trust me the manual puts a BIGG smile on your face, sometimes you're just in the zone to play with the gears.
    As for the resale, this is Pakistan, im sure after 3-4 years people might get it off your hands for the price you paid for it, or even 20-30k on top of that, 2005 civic's are sold for much more than their price these days, so yeah anything is possible in Pakistan.

    Fog lights, not an issue, you could get after markets
    Sunroof, just a shashka for 2 3 months, uskay bad im sure you wouldnt even bother using it.
    I am already feeling confident; thanks pal for the nice words

    @ poster
    The Manual Oriel Model is Rs. 185,000/- expensive than the simple manual (ivtec) with the following Additional Features


    Door Mirror with Integrated Turn Light
    Sun - roof
    Keyless Remote Entry (Built into Key)
    In-dash 6 CD Changer
    Map Light
    Supplement Restraint System (Airbags) (Driver & Front Seat Passenger)
    Fog Lamps

    In my opinion, Oriel Models (whether they are manual or prosmatic) have much demand and resale than the simpler ones.

    So it is worth to buy a oriel model although it is heavy on pocket but SRS is ONLY present in Oriel Models.

    Sir sometimes Rs. 185,000 are very hard to manage.

    Especially when a person is already shelling out north of 1.7M.

    The VTi M/T is as good to drive and own as a VTi Oriel PROSMATEC. A person gets used to of the added features by the passage of time.

    I brought one and it touched miserably at the home' slope Discussed the matter with dad; we agreed to re-plan the slope. Construction work already happening at another location; can spare some workers and material after 10-15 days.

    I will try finding some good 2009 or 2010 Oriel mean time. Also lets see what happens with Altis 1.6. A poster claiming there that something will be on display tomorrow. If it comes with dual VVTI I will go with it; as no thoka thaki will be required. My mother is alergic to dust; so will try to avoid it...Otherwise after reconstruction of the slope by mid April, Insha-Allah will have iVTEC

    A Hadis says, 'richest is he who is contended with votever he has'. m glad to see you haven't even mentioned borrowing and tend to purchase within your limits. as shared by worthy members above, sun roof, indicators, map lights, all, you won't even notice a few months down the lane. my sister + family have had two sunroof cars each since 2006 but i've seen them use it only ONCE. if you still insist, sun roof would cost you Rs. 20000. no idea about indicators. didn't mention rims because you haven't either.

    Your best bet is to get Civic I-Vtec manual, most importantly because you've decided on your budget. Going to Civic I-Vtec Prosmatec would cost you approx. 150K more, which will only get you an automatic drive without any added features that comes in Oriel.
    Prices aren't going to come down and coz of that the resale will remain on good side.

    the only thing that convinces me to buy the oriel are the dual airbags.rest one can live without the other features.have kept both manual and auto oriels. Both have their own charm,but as im getting older im getting fond of the autos.BTW manuals are always fun to drive.autos for peace+relaxation.

    @Khuziz

    Like I said in the 1.6 Altis thread as well, buying a Civic M/T isn't a bad decision. It mostly depends on how long you're going to keep the car. My family personally keeps the cars for 6-8 years so at the end of that run, we get a fair price no matter what the car.

    The only thing to even consider in this whole debate about Oriel and VTi is this:

    1) Oriel has airbags. VTi has none.
    2) Auto is very and i mean VERY peaceful and relaxing to drive. In fact I doubt once you get used to the chaska of "prosmatec" you'll ever think about driving a manual again. BUT, the manual Civic's drive is the most awesome drive of any manual car in Pakistan at the moment.

    These are the only two things that I'm considering if the Altis doesn't launch in the coming few days.

    I went through the same decision-making-stage very recently, and I bought the iVTEC manual. What prompted me to make the decision was:-

    - CIVIC is going to have new model very soon (early 2012) so it won't look good spending more money on something that is an outgoing model. I will rather save something today to get the new model in coming few months.

    - Manual option is more powerful - yet more economical than auto-transmission (I am getting average in the range of 12.5-13kpl)

    - Even if the basic model has lower resale than Oriel - the difference will not be more than 200,000/- for a well-maintained car (and this is almost the same difference in original price). So I don't think there is anything to lose.

    With fog-lights and RockMars DVD installed and new Yokohama's - I am enjoying my car a lot....
