    Default Member suggestions required regarding new car

    Aoa. Im looking for a fuel efficient car, and my search has led me to a couple of options. I have heard a lot about the Daihatsu Mira (eS version), and Suzuki Alto (ECO). Third option is a PKDM Suzuki Wagon R.

    Now my questions are:
    1. Which car among the three is better in terms of fuel economy, comfort, maintenance and resale?

    2. What should be the approximate price of Mira and Alto?

    3. Are all 660 JDMs accidental? (I went through a couple of forums on PW, and the impression i got was that all JDMs are accidentals.)

    4. What is the REALISTIC fuel economy Daihatsu Mira and Suzuki Alto give? Im pretty sure the 17-18kmpl and 20-24kmpl claim is only possible on Japanese roads, and not on Pakistani (Lahore) roads.

    Thanking everyone in advance.

    Strike Wagon R off from your List
    Mira E;S and Alto both r good cars.
    Mira E;S is not good with build quality and feels like a fragile car and Alto feels more solid
    Mileage of both eco versions r same
    expect around 15-15kml with A.C in city driving with Eco versions and higher on long route.
    Alto's build quality is very good and much better than Mira E;S ( owned both )
    All jdms r not imported accidented. the chances of getting a clean and cheap 4 grade Alto is much more than Mira
    worth going for

    Alto Eco Manual will surely give better than Auto but i warn u, manual alto has no resale and u will get it approx 100k cheaper than Auto as people don't like to buy manual 660's

    I own a wagon R and I am very pleased with its fuel economy, Comfort and build quality. Resale has not established yet, just like vitz had no resale when it was introduced.

    Anyone who is spending a million rupees of their hard earned money should preferably go for a zero meter car, as it will require minimum maintenance and would be more reliable than a used car.

    Good luck

    Go for a 660cc chuha if you don't plan on keeping it long, or you like/know how to work on cars and maintain them yourself. Go for a local Wagon R, or even a FAW V2 otherwise.
    _ 22 km/l from '03 VTi automatic, with plenty of room for improvement

    Stay Away From these 660cc dinkies. They are not Fuel Efficient. I've kept many 660cc including Alto (Both AT/MT), Pino, Otti, Mira Custom Turbo etc But Currently I have ek wagon and It Gives me 11-12 Km/l I Would Suggest You to go Local WagonR or FAW V2

    why 660cc if small displacement = efficiency than why not a small car with 50cc engine

    All these cars you've mentioned are not equipped with CVT! And indeed fuel drinkers ;D
    Maybe its your bad luck!
    Try 2011 onward
    Wagon R
    Move
    Mira eS
    Alto eco
    Moco and i hope you wont be disappointed again!
    They are powerful , and wont make you feel like driving a 660cc
    Always respect your parents
