    Bro go for brand new swift as there will be no tension of frequent workshop visits , charm of a descent new car ,good resale
    reasonable comfort and good handling ,
    other options are ,you can find neat clean vitz in this price (will take some time for a genuine car) ,i personally have 1300CC vitz
    (2szfe engine) and its a great car .comfort ,spacious ,easy availability of parts .i am not sure its parts are cheap or expensive as
    compare with swift .if you can afford consider vitz also , city is again a good option specially if u like sedan
    so first consider you want sedan or hatchback
    CNG or not
    my preference in order 1 Vitz (1300cc only) , 2 CITY , 3 Swift with no offense to swift or city owners ,its a matter of personal liking and disliking

    @asfnd.awan

    Car's resale is established when people actually buy.

    Swift resale is not great so dont expect miracles when you are going to sell after 2 years.But still it is a safe option and it is not fuel efficient aswell.

    Say good bye to CNG.It is not feasible now.Long queues will negatively affect your temperament.

    Stretch your budget and buy city(safest investment)

    WOnt recommend any JDM.

    My vote goes to V2(houses same vitz first gen 2NZ-FE 1.3 L ) engine,more efficient than swift,ABS+EBD,dual airbags,better safety,power windows etc.Test drive recommended
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.
