    It depends on your usage, preference etc etc. I think if you are in Kci, I wud suggest you go for Vitz for better fuel efficiency + comfort of a CVT in traffic jams and stop-n-go traffic. If you are more concerned about resale and usually travel on rough roads, better opt for rolla. Honda City is also a very efficient car but good for city driving. All in all, I've used all 3 cars and all of 'em are quite nice....its just a matter of your situation that will help you decide about a particular car.

    city - cuz i know people who have owned it and love it.

    a guy i know ran his engine for 275000kms after which he had to change or overhaul the engine.

    he got a used engine in v good condition in Rs.30000 including mechanic charges n lubricants. city is known for good fuel consumption and as i told u mechanical parts are easy to find n cheap.

    corollas of that era sucked badly. the major problem was their brakes which locked up with little brake application.

    vitz does not run good in pakistan. i know 5 friends and all their cars vibrate like hell and mileage is comparable to city.

    vits leni hai to 1300cc honi chahiyay. 1000cc is slow and with more than 2 passengers it gets slow.


    Buy the city cuz of its resale. easily availability of parts n better quality.

    My vote is for city because we have both cars corolla and city
    City batter fuel mileage and good for city use
    Corolla is good for resale and long drive

    City has an edge in fuel economy, especially when using on Petrol.
    City and corolla are almost same in terms of parts (availability and cost), maintenance, resale.
    Corolla is more comfortable to compare to City.
    Vitz is a different category. its an imported hatchback car. not recommended if using CNG.
    I personally think if you plan to have only one car and have family, then ignore Vitz and choose between City and Corolla.

    It seems Corolla would serve the purpose.

    Vario consumes more comparing to manual. CNG is not an option in Vario. If you have no issue in driving manual car then go for Manual iDSI and forget about Vario.

    vitz is the best option here...its the most featurefull car from all three abs which is not present in both the other cars and airbags aswell apart from that you will be getting auto transmission that is very good concideering the traffic situation of karachi annd auto vitz will give u the same milage as manual city and yes it is a strong built car...the only advantage in corolla and city can be the trunk which will remain the same size as vitz trunk after cng and vitz wont be having cng...drive quality of vitz is far more superior than other both two and pleasure of vitz is even more than both others...so vitz wins in every case here

    Corolla will serve the purpose because you have to travel to interior sindh. No tension of ground clearance, parts etc. Rough and tough car. And after all good resale.

    Brother Corolla 2002-07 if u need a family reliable car. XLi if u need economy and SE Saloon / Altis for highway travel.

    Vitz / Passo 2002-08 if u can afford JDM on petrol and need luxury and reliability.

    Stay away from old hondas at all cost they will waste ur time and money and you will be standing with mechanics.
    All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
