    i will suggest to find a JDM (say alto with PKDM shape). The engine parts may be available for most JDM vehicles (And Expensive OEMs part can be seen as worth the price) but the body part (lights bumper) can be very heavy on the pocket which is normal in pak driving style.

    1. Imported Suzuki Alto
    2. Daihatsu Mira


    Passo has bad fuel average as compared to the Alto & Mira.

    JDM is the best option but we have got a whole list of cars under JDM ...

    Thats the main problem ... we have got passo . mira . alto . esse . mitsubishi ek wagon . etc

    If you want to save fuel than Mira e surely fulfills your criteria!
    Excellent economy!
    21km/l -23 km/l in city , because of Eco Idol and CVT and light weight body!

    Brother Suzuki Alto 2011 with R06A engine and idle stop is better than all Kei cars including Mira e;S when it comes to drive, parts and fuel economy.

    Nice one will be of 850K.

    I have witnessed 18-20km/l in daily driving from Malir CANTT to HBL Plaza in office rush hours.

    Although still cant beat my good old 2000 Cultus on CNG.

    Brother the R06A engine with idle stop only comes in 2011.

    2 variants in 5 door Alto ECO-L & ECO-S, choose CVT with 2WD chassis code is ABEE-LD4 & SD4, ABEQ is 4WD.

    ECO-S is colored door mirrors and heated glass as option basically the same.

    Have seen pictures of a lot of alto eco cars but most of them have got eco showing in their meters but Eco is not written out back with the alto and the idling stop is also not there .. is their a difference in between these cars or the badge is just missing .. ?

    Mira has written e;S on it unless its repainted and someone misplaced the metal sticker

    Alto has written ECO with green leaf on backside.

    Simple see the engine number in engine bay or paper and you will recognize.

    Remember it only came with cars manufactured in 2011 onwards.

    Some people say that car is 2011 even when its manufactured in 2009 but imported in PAK in 2011.

    Ok thanks a lot @bradpit .. that means that the R06A engine is the one with the eco system .. will check out the market soon .. probably would go for the suzuki as it is cheaper than the daihatsu ...

    Mira has got the g version which the fully loaded one .. alto has got the ECO-S right which the fully loaded one .. ?

    All of the cars you mentioned are not smart choices. All of them are around a million plus you never know their history no matter who is selling them. expensive/shortage in spares.Lastly you never know what they will end up as. Insurance issues.

    i recommend

    suzuki baleno 2005 450 k
    suzuki liana 2006 rxi 500 k
    hyundai santro exec 2004 350 k
    honda city idsi 2005 600 k (my fav choice of them all )
    toyota vitz 2004 600 k

    always go for local assembled cars due to availability of parts cheaper purchase and easier reselling. do not restrict yourself to auto tranny. they can be a pain when requiring replacement /repair. The only challenge here is to find one in genuine state. there is a low chance of theft especially in case of baleno , liana and santro.

    my fav all timer is honda city 2005 vario

    perfect for daily run though id prefer the manual shift . Its got amazing boot spare , decently priced spare parts . Ample driving space and its after all a HONDA
