    Default Should I buy Swift or Civic exi?

    I've tried going through past threads, but didn't find any helpful information.


    My question is, I have 1m budget, and I have 2 options.

    1. Civic exi
    2. Swift.

    Also considering that I have family of three.

    I like Civic for its shape and class, but 0 meters itself is also appealing.

    Im concerned about few things

    1. Civic Vs swift what is the difference in daily fuel consumption.
    2. Some one told me that as compared to Civic, maintenance of swift is costly. (swift spare parts are costly as compared to Civic?)


    I appreciate any feedback in this regard.

    there is a principal difference in leagues and you term it not worth considering over?
    i can list hell more differences,but those all are above your understanding capabilities.

    ok then these all out here are dumb @$$E$ out here who prefer a 15 year so called PI$$ED of civic (as you think) over new liana etc.

    ahhhh if you can dare comparing civic and swift then why not to compare cooper and porsche??can you please explain this very statement????????no you surely ''CAN't''
    bigger engine is a difference, but where does it states that a car with a bigger engine becomes immortal and "IT BECOMES CHILDISH" to compare it with a lesser capicity engine car when the difference is only 200cc?
    better brakes, yes I completely agree with you civic takes the lead with better brakes and I mentioned it in my post, but that too was realised after comparing both civic ans swift that which has better brakes agreed huh?
    boot space?
    ofcourse one is a hatch and other is sedan so definetely sedan will have more boot space, if boot space is the comparison measure then is civic better than cooper?
    handling?
    at how much speed do you expect to drive a family car in city?
    120km/h? 140km/h?
    then let me tell you that uptill 140km/h swift is stable and very much under control.moreover the 15" wheels with 185mm tires are good enought to provide you with excellent grip.
    acceleration?
    definetely 1500cc will be faster than 1300cc but how much will be the gap?
    ever tried running both of these side by side?
    if swift is behind than with how much difference?
    2 cars gap? max?
    does this gap throws it out of the competition?
    as I previously stated that having independant rear suspension arms not makes a civic a rally car.
    suspension of swift is good and comfortable enough to keep the car stable and the passengers comfortable.
    instead of doubting about my "understanding capabilities" why dont you mention those so called stats here?

    in city driving it is a different story, you have to accelerate at times, frequent braking, idling at signals which means more fuel burnt.

    Ahhh!!!
    you still not getting along with the argument are you?
    the original post says that if one has to choose between 2 cars, one is zero meter and the other one is 7-8 years used than what should be the preferance?
    its nothing about civic or swift, its about new vs used..
    in that case I reckon the newer the better
    right?
    as far as my case is concerned Im not buying a new car.
    the car I currently own, was originally bought by a relative for his daughter in 2003.
    they bought it from honda sales dealer and it was brand new. yes brand new zero meter, back then when it was readily available, the preferance back then was brand new too..
    however at that time the 2000 civic was a hot favourite.
    the car was used by my female cousin whose drive only included the trips to markaz or university.
    they migrated to UK in 2007 and I was offered the ownership of the car.
    trust me even at that time I was looking to buy a brand new civic(reborn) but did not have the finances to buy it.
    so in the end I got this car..
    it was only 16,000kms on the odo when I got this car with plastics on seats still intact and it smelled like a new car, morever at that time I got this car at dirt cheap rate as my relatives were in a hurry to dispose it off.
    had I the finances at that time I would have gone for a zero meter car at that time too.
    now whenever I,ll upgrade or change my car then this car will be replaced by a brand new zero meter car inshAllah!

    lol,local civic is 130hp,well thats the regular variant all around the world,got almost same hp,u wanted an apple to apple comparison,i threw civic ep3 hatch for that,its aint honda's fault that they built it with a 200hp motor.it is a hatch,swift is a hatch too,now compare emm,seems insane na??its what ive been telling yousince last 9 pages or so.

    yes sir with due respect i agree with you that swift is an excellent car but comparing it with 7th gen es1??seems dumb.quite basic at concepts you are.
