    Question Corolla Diesel/Petrol or Honda City

    Meray Aziz Humwatno.... Asalaam Alekum!

    I need to decide which car to buy from used Corolla Diesel/Petrol or Honda City.
    Please keep in mind that...
    1. It needs to travel a 400-500 km/week within city.
    2. It needs to travel on long routes (300/400 km) like 5/6 times a year on rough highways.
    3. I have a budget of 10 Lac only.
    4. I am looking for a package with...
    - Fuel economy (since CNG is not an option anymore)
    - Durability
    - Acceptable maintenance cost (since I am a salaried person)

    Please be precise and give helpful reasons for your recommendation.
    I hope your feedback will not only be helpful for me but for the general public as well.

    Jazzak Allah!

    Walikum salam..
    Corolla Diesel is the good option.
    City 06 gives really nice average on petrol. But it won't bear rough highways as corolla can.

    Go for diesel in 10lak you can buy a nice 2od saloon which is a complete pakage your 2nd choice is city idsi but it is not good on rough highways as compared to corolla keep in mind city has very poor brakes and 2od saloon has ABS.So go for corolla

    buy a low mileage corolla diesel (max 65k) , kutt k b chlao ge to 150000 km se pehle engine ka problem ni kre gi, fuel economy is great even when driven with a heavy foot( just shift as quickly as you can as it gives better accleration in higher gears + fuel economy means double yay). maintainence ki fikr ni krni, petrol wali e ha oils, filters etc. bas hr 10k km k ba'd mechanic se check kra lena if engine is getting weak, if it is then marcha mar lena(exchanging with a lower mileage car) is a better option than overhauling it.

    idsi is crap performance wise.. but you cant match its mileage.. diesel is too expensive plus you have option to instal cng on idsi..

    bro deisel all the way as i myself am an ex owner of 2000,2006,2007,2010 deisel corolla...but if u want to buy then try finding one which is used respectabally as deisel cars under use of one person only last longer than ones used by 3-4 people at a time can then the engine can never recover ...maintinng it is not expensive the oil consumption is upto 5 liters which can easily give you 6000km and consumption of fuel is very good as my 2010 2.OD SR used to give me 16km/liter locally with AC and 17-18km/liter on motorway....if u want to get it for long use then i would suggest going for 2005-2008 corolla the last shape as the body is small and engine is perfect for it the upper models are heavy and have a bigger body and easily start making alot of noise......

    From your valuable feedback I get that Corolla diesel is a better option given the conditions described.
    1. A low mileage 2.0D will give better fuel average
    2. ABS brakes provide better control
    3. Strong on rough roads
    4. Maintenance costs are acceptable if carefully driven

    A big thank you to all brothers for contributing to the thread. If you have further info regarding 2.0D, please chip in as often as you like, as I will be checking that from time to time.
