    The latter model all they way... Spares are a bit expensive but the overall package is brilliant...

    I own the old model and my friend has the 2010 model.. The new model is a joy to drive... Smooth and comfy...

    Cheers...

    the old one was better in both looks , drive , response and ergonomics

    new one feels too .... cheap plastic.... very over priced and a bit loud on the interior

    1) fuel efficiency on petrol.

    The newer one is more fuel efficient because an engine with better technology and a much better transmission i.e. CVT BUT, if fuel efficiency is really that imp for you then find an older vitz with manual tranny and it would make the biggest difference. Plus if you get unlucky and the engine faces some major issue then the one's for older vitz are available dirt cheap.

    Older Vitz:
    The 1SZ-FE is 1.0 L (997 cc). Bore is 69 mm and stroke is 66.7 mm, with a compression ratio of 10.0:1. Output is 51.5 kW (69 hp) at 6000 rpm with 95 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.
    Newer Vitz:
    The 1KR-FE is a 1.0 L (996 cc) version built in Japan and Poland. Bore is 71 mm and stroke is 84 mm, with a compression ratio of 10.5:1. Output is 67 PS (50 kW) at 6000 rpm with 67.07 lb?ft (91 N?m) of torque at 4800 rpm or 71 PS (53 kW) at 6000 rpm with (94 N?m) of torque at 3600 rpm

    2) general maintenance like oil change etc

    All depends on your priorities, if you go for original toyota parts then the difference would not be that great but if you are ok with the local parts then the one for older version would be cheaper. For oils, both cars have almost the same lubricants except the CVT oil for the newer model which is a one time expense btw so shouldn't be a really big issue

    3) spare parts cost and availability - specially side mirrors

    New model has more expensive parts

    4) drive comfort

    Newer is more comfortable

    5) cabin space/capacity

    Newer is spacious

    6) pick and top speed

    Both cars with 1 litre engine are under powered, so pick and top speed are not a factor that should even be discussed for them. You can although go for the versions with bigger engines as they are ok

    Hope that helps

    99-04 Vitz'es are i guess better built and more durable on the overall.

    1) Fuel efficiency is almost more or less similar, im geting around 12-13 km/L with me drving the 2007, Iused to get 10-11 on the 2002 model, My father managed to get 14-14.5 on the 2002 model.

    2) General maintainence is same from mehran to mercedece, Air filter is the same oil is same 3L oil filter is a bit different but costs the same

    3) Spares on the overall are more expencive for the 2nd Gen Vitz, Side mirrors new cost around 20k a pair, While used ones can be bought for 9k a pair. Corolla side mirrors cost 4k a pair they fit acuratly but the retract wont work

    4) The old one drives more smoother.

    5) The old is spacier then a 2002-2008 Corolla, The new one is even bigger more comfortable seats, More grace, more fun being in the cabin just that the CVT makes noise.

    5) Pickup can be slow on the 2nd gen but top speed is more then the 1st Gen.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    it seems karachites on here favor the old model over the new one while the non-karachites favor the new model.

    Newer (05 and above) is much much noisy then older (upto 04)...

    Pick is absolutely pathetic in both versions, total under powered.
