    Default Crucial decision Gli vs City

    Dear Pakwheelers

    Assalam-o-Alaikum

    First of all my requirements

    I ll be applying for a car through car financing from CSD as I am from armed forces. Secondly, I am very touchy about economy. Especially, after sales economy that includes fuel, spares and routine maintenance. I am not a teenager or a speed freak but I would like something that does atleast 110-120 Km/hr on highways easily and has no drag in in-city traffic. Resale is also very important, please do keep that in mind as well.

    Now, my preference will go to a family car. Comfort level is also important.

    Lastly, I would appreciate if the people replying to the thread may please include personal experiences as well. A person who has actually driven the two cars i.e. Gli and City, his opinion will carry more weight. This is not a war between the two cars, I like both cars so just give facts.

    Regards

    Ali
    I love my country, my mother, my soil

    I have kept Gli 2012 and have driven 2010 city alot. But Gli is far far better then city if someone is looking for a family car.
    Sorry guys mine Gli was 2010 not 2012.. :-)

    We've two gli and two city ,modles are same ie one city and corolla 09 ,one city and corolla 2012
    i am a big honda fan but other than fuel economy nothing good in city . pathetic suspension and comfoft level.
    gli all the way without any doubt
    gli also has good fuel economy ,and if you go for gli always get it refueled from well reputed pumps as new gli has catalytic convertor and its of poor quality as compared to one installed in city or civic . My elder brother got his gli last month and on the way from showroom he got fuel from a pso pump and cat was gone i was really amazed to see this as car had not even done 100 kms by that time.

    well bro if your talking about the new CAT's then i cant say anything about them but the 2010 models are perfect the only drawback is if you refill fromsome unkown pump then there will be terrible knocking but a good pump you won't even find a single sound of...also your bro is lucky that his car is in running he will get the replacement free...

    Poster with ur permission I am asking an off topic question.

    Enough said about the hard suspension of city . What about the suspension of civic? same hard suspension on civic also or that is comparable to the comfort of corolla?

    asked as I am loving the new shape civic esp after it will get the speculated facelift.
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    As previous owner of gli and current owner of civic i can clarify that theres not much of a difference of comfort btw gli an civic.Gli is slightly more comfortable

    I have driven both cars in auto and in manual too.
    I would like to conclude that city has a better smoother drive than corolla and u car feel some power in your hand nd u can feel that car is in ur control. City also gives a more sporty look and is actually more spacius too.
    On the other hand corollas drive is also really convincing. But u will get a feeling at some moments that car is giving a bubly ride even on smooth roads.
    Corolla even consumes more petrol nd their is a lot of difference when ull compare the both cars average consumption. I heard that corolla brakes arnt good and i was totally against this when i used to drive in islamabad but when i visited my village near toba tek singh a child jumped onto the road suddenly, i hit the brakes at their maximum and also turned the steering away to avoid hitting the child. Thanks Allah almighty his father was with him and he pulled the boy back. And u guys wont believe it the car stopped almost 8-10 meters further away from the child. Can u believe it corolla new 2012 gli manual braking from 130 to 0 in about 15 seconds.( this is an estimate as i was so paralized at the moment i dont remember the actual details) but still the brakes were pathetic and a really really fatal accidentight had happened.
    So anyways city has a larger trunk too they look the same in size but u can fill more stuff in city.
    Corolla back seats ate truly comfortable than city but still u know corolla is also expensive. So i think u should go for a CITY!

    Sir, honestly, my aim was not to start a fight, if someone comes to a forum and is immature enough to get emotional about one car being better than the other, I guess that person needs to be in a mental hospital rather than on a forum.
