    Default What to Buy in 750k? (City or Corrolla)

    Hey Everyone!

    So I'm planning to a car within a budget of 750k... can't decide between

    Honda city (2000-2003) EXIS
    and
    Toyota Corrolla (94-2000)

    Other suggestions are also welcomed keeping in mind that i need a car with trunk...

    I know both of them are comfortable with good fuel economy but my friends are saying k Honda ka kharcha bht hai :/ my personal choice is Honda city but they are convincing me to buy corolla 94-97 xe ...

    Please post your opinions/suggestions along with pros and cons...

    Regards

    Brother if u drive on CNG then 1.3 XE will be OK otherwise it is guzzler of petrol. BTW 1.6 GLi is powerful than 1.3 XE/GL, and 2.0D diesel gives better fuel economy.

    had a chance to own both cars xe 1997 petrol and city 2002! i concluded that original parts of both cars have similar prices, drive wise city takes the lead , comfort wise rolla is better, and city is much cheaper to run and to maintain! brake, acceleration, stability, handling are all much much better in city 2002! corolla looks more luxurious type and city looks sporty! 1.3 xe was great on petrol! had awesome pick but lesser than city! city ki cng pr ziada speed ha! and xe used to slip on hard braking! fuel wise city is more economical! but corolla was very comfy and spacious! city is not that comfortable and not that spacious! last thing city has hyper 16 valve mpfi engine while xe has carby engine!

    Well This was the comment I was looking for .. great review brother. So I can finally short list it to City 2000-2003 EXIS and about comfort well I'm upgrading from a Mehran so I'll find it extremely Comfortable
    Just wanted to know if I'll be able to get a city in around 700k

    You are right city of country to find a good corolla as Peshawar and corolla goes very well together plus all the goodies you can get for these cars from Peshawar. If not keen then city is good alternative!

    both cars are by far the best designed for Pakistani market , also my top 2 favorite local assembled cars.... would rank the corolla 1.6 gli (Indus 2001) over the city (2003 exis) yet am a fan of both.

    both cars if properly maintained offer low maintenance. excellent resale , well built and above all , excellent driving position and comfort level.

    very difficult to find a seller willing to let go for a decent price as a matter of fact letting go at all.....

    search for a 1.6 gli limited edition with 14 inch factory rims and u will never want to sell it... i miss my Indus yet am glad i had a great time with it. If you cant find one then go for a gli 1.3 or an xeg limited. xe is the best deal in resale however lacks the creature comforts u find in a gl and gli .

    the exis city is a class lower then the corolla but the best city in the market till date , durable , beautiful , sticks to the road like a gecko and is hot cash... try getting one in Harvard blue , silver or white... the most desired and expensive colors... all u need to add is a 185 r 14 inch millennium brand star rims and it becomes a head turner....

    most welcome... city if maintained properly with parts replacement and avoiding repairing... will go on and on.... great choice

    i like the blue city you mentioned... if the deal falls through please get the original rear lights and change the rims to millennium 14 inch 185 like the ones in the margalla or 14inch oxygen rims like the ones in my charade. For tires preferably Yokohama Aspec or dunlop echo.... oxygen designs are from 2005-2008 era easier to find compared to the millennium design 1999-2003 era...
