    Default Vitz or Lancer 1.3? Stuck :(

    Hey guys! I have been a regular reader of comments and suggestions at PakWheels since a long time. I have never really needed advice because I was waiting to get a new car but now I am stuck and need EXPERT advice.

    Here are some facts:

    • I am changing from Suzuki Alto 2007.
    • My budget is from 7-8.5k.
    • I don't want a City (02-05) or a Corolla 04-06 as there is a Corolla in the house.


    I have been an avid fan of VITZ and LANCER but I need expert advice of people who have driven both these cars as I am confused about which one I want. The car will be used for regular use, driving to college/uni, with family, with friends etc.

    LANCER:

    As searched on Pakwheels, Lancer can be found between 7-8.5k depending on mileage and condition. All are 2005-2007. Car will be 1.3, whether GL or GLX depends on availability and price difference. I understand parts will be a problem but now it seems that its not as big a problem as it used to be in the past. I'm pretty sure my father will buy CNG installed car. Please tell me how much is the mileage on Petrol and CNG of 1.3l Lancer?

    Also, I have learnt that there are two kinds of Lancer. One is Japan assembled made for Pak market, and another is Japan assembled made for Japan market (very expensive). My friend just got the Japan market one for around 11k. It is slightly different exterior wise (and according to him, engine wise). When buying a lancer, what should I look out for? How much is a 2007 fresh import?

    VITZ:

    My father personally prefers Vitz. I have read on PW that 1.0 model is very pathetic so possibly he will go for 1.3l. I will be looking for 2006-2008 model but I am pretty sure it will cross my range. But as my father prefers it, he will be willing to go upto 9-10k for it. Can CNG be installed on it? What is the petrol mileage of 1.3l?

    Please help!
    Will wait for everyones replies

    CNG lowers the petrol average a lot, and these japanese cars are meant to be driven purely on petrol
    CNG only works in toyota and suzuki
    for your record bro, cng in japanese corolla X performs better than local xli. also mileage is better than local xli.

    If cng is a must, manual lancer. If petrol driving is an option, then opt for vitz for economy and lancer for comfort. It all comes down to what you value more
