    Default Honda City 2009/10 vs Toyota Vitz 2007-09 vs Toyota Passo 2007-09

    Hi, I am planning to buy a car and have shortlisted the above three. I would like to know, the pros and cons of each car especially with respect to:

    i. Fuel efficiency
    ii. Ground clearance
    iii. Driving comfort
    iv. Suspension
    v. Features
    vi. Maintenance Cost/Ease
    vii. CNG performance

    My budget is 10 lacs - 11.5 lacs. This is how I rank these cars at the moment.

    i. Fuel efficiency
    - City, Passo, Vitz
    ii. Ground clearance
    - City, Vitz, Passo
    iii. Driving comfort
    - Vitz/Passo, City
    iv. Suspension
    - Vitz, Passo, City
    v. Features
    - Passo, Vitz, City
    vi. Maintenance cost/ease
    - Vitz/Passo, City
    vii. CNG Performance
    - City, Passo, Vitz

    I am sure, I am wrong on many of these. Would like to hear your opinion.

    You can't use passo and vitz on CNG as both of them are CVT transmission. You can use City on CNG as long as it's a manual.

    Thanks Waleed96. I did not know that. Any idea about how fuel efficient each of these are (on petrol)? Any figures for miles/liter in city and on highway?

    Dear, Passo before 2010 is non CVT, so always prefer vitz in that models...

    Passo after 2010 is CVT and u can get 2011-2012 basic model in 11.50 range...

    Big NO for CNG in passo and vitz...

    u cannot get city 09/10 in 11.50, good cars are above 13...

    my suggestions are...

    1. Passo 2011-12 unreg/reg
    2. Vitz 2009-10 reg

    Thanks DrUsmanNawaz.
    As I live in Abbottabad and streets/roads here have khadday and unusually large bumps, do you think Passo will have any issue in such conditions? Would you prefer Vitz over Passo for such roads? how would you rate the fuel efficiency of both these cars compared to City?

    P.S. I have seen a few Honda City 2009/10 here for around 12.5 lacs. If City is much better than Vitz/Passo, I might be willing to extend my range.

    All JDMs have low ground clearance, whether it is passo or vitz...

    City has better ground clearance than vitz and passo, but not better than corolla....

    Fuel economy of passo is somehow better or atleast equivalent to vitz.... but way better than automatic city...

    as u live in kpk, u might be interested in CNG car, in that regard, 2 best options are 09/10 corolla and city...

    corolla is way better than city in terms of suspension, drive and comfort level, + it can handle CNG well...

    Honda cars have sophisticated engines, a frend of mine installed CNG in his brand new CITY, and sold it after few months as he was getting very pathetic average... better to avoid CNG in city...

    ppl used to put bigger tyres in their vitz/passo to increase ground clearance...

    If u travel alone or with 1 more person, then these cars donot make mess, but if u have to travel with family frequently, then low grpund clearance will create problem for u...
