    Default Passo or City IDSI

    I am looking to buy a car and my first two choices are Passo 2008/2009 and City IDSI 2007/2008
    i dropped the idea of buying 2010 Passo only because of its ugly dashboard (no offense to passo 2010 owners)
    please tell me pro's and con's of both Passo vs City IDSI 2008
    budget = 11 Lakh
    also tell me the price range of these two cars
    thanks

    City IDSi, hands down. Nothing can beat the comfort of a sedan. Even if you still want a hatch, go for swift then. Passo sucks.

    Bro swift is no where near passo apart from being 1.3 . Be it handling, comfort, luxury, features, reliability. BUT incase of JDM swift i guess jdm swift is way better than passo.

    Ummmm... Sorry sir but I drove a passo one day. Some sort of special edition, don't remember the name, it was new shape fresh import. ODO read less than 20k km. It felt funny at corners, flying in the wind at speeds above 100kph and poor at acceleration, well at least not faster than swift. Braking was okay(ish) as well.

    What I personally feel is that City Idsi possesses out class luxury and comfort in comparison. Several times better interior, seats, drive quality and traction (except braking). And the swift is a far better option as its new, better interior, much lesser road noise inside the cabin, out class braking and traction.

    Though personally, I would always go for a city over a swift.

    For your kind info i own a 2000 civic not a idsi city but since i have driven both the idsi daddu and the passo Japanese dinky so i gave a true and fair view unlike you.

    If you intend to use it on petrol then buy a swift because it would be hard if not impossible to find a city that didn't had CNG installed. Don't buy Passo it is way too underpowered.

    The only negetive point that city has is that it will be 7 or 6 years old car with alot of km's on the ODO.

    If you can get your hands on a clean low mileage city then buy it otherwise also consider swift in your options.

    handling.... in what sense the handling of passo is better than swift, i have a close friend's(neighbors) passo always at my disposal, it has got better grip than my khyber(btw my khyber is currently running on 2003 tyres which have hardened cuz being so old) but less stability(swerving quickly at 100kph is a big no no).

    comfort and luxury wise it's like kei cars, and we know that sum kei cars have better features(mira) than altis but it doesn't make em an altis...

    reliability wise if we could get a brand new jdm car than it's be the most reliable one, but here most of them are atleast minor accidented(more than once ofcourse) and the chances of even a 5 years old pkdm car surviving here are more than a jdm cuz of loads of cheap spares availability.

    well after some thinking i decided to search for 2011/2012 swift dlx in Islamabad .pindi area
    reasons
    1 swift shape
    2 parts prices and availability plus better understanding of the car by local mechanics
    3 it will be only 1 to 2 year old with less mileage
    4 1300cc ,powerful and fun to drive car (both 1.0 passo and vitz cant match this)
    5 current shape will be there for next 5 years according to pak suzuki history
    6 finding a good car will be easy
    7 better suit our local fuel etc

    Inshallah i will soon find a good swift
