    Default Need a car for a 3 person family.

    Hi there,

    Okay, so I have owned a cultus for the past 10 years or so, it has given up on me and I have given up on it. Its finally time to replace the cultus and get a second car. My budget is around 10-12 lacs. The budget can extend by some margin based on value for money. I have a small 3 person family including me, so don't need a huge saloon. Here are my requirements.

    1) Fuel economy is the most important factor. Be it on CNG or Petrol, preferably petrol.
    2) Comfort comes in at a 2nd. i have a small family, just a mother and sister, and I want them to travel comfortably.
    3) Resale value, since we might be selling the car after 3-4 years.
    4) Safety

    I am leaning more towards a Vitz but the second hand factor is a real turn off, besides the fuel economy. I have thought of several other variables, including a chery qq and a honda city. I know, 2 completely different vehicles, but i figure if I am making such a huge investment, it should be worth it too. I am also considering a Swift but the fact that Paksuzuki is manufacturing it is a turn off too, since I am not a big fan of the cultus i currently own.

    Please advice people.

    hi Guys, I am in the same situation as Xavierl as my budget is 1 million rupee max(all inclusive registration,insurance,blah blah) but I have some more concerns.

    I don't live in Karachi, I am buying a car just for my sister and mother. My sister has to go to office and then uni in the evening, and then the usual travelling to markets etc. My sister doesn't know how to drive so she will learn to drive with this car we are buying. I want the car to be hassle free(you know how girls are).

    Features I want (priority (high)1-7(low) )
    --------------------
    1) Power steering
    2) Automatic
    3) Some sort of security like Immobilizer so it won't start even if hot wired.
    4) Repair (ager lag laga jae to repair ho jae aaraam se and parts mil jae)
    5) Fuel Economy should be OK - Only petrol, NO CNG
    6) Maintainance should be not not that expensive
    7) Resale

    In short please suggest a car which will be suitable for a beginner girl in karachi scenario. Please take into account all the situation of Karachi like theft, snatching, etc. I wan't my sister to be safe on karachi roads as well as have fun driving.

    Cars I have short listed and the things which are concerned in it
    1) Honda City iDSI (2005-2008) - Big Car so maybe my sister will have trouble - No Immobilizer
    2) Toyota Vitz/Yaris (please suggest model year) - Does it have immobilizer?

    Regards,

    Imran
