I need some expert opinion, let me describe;

I have a budget of 1.4 to 1.5 million to upgrade from honda civic 05, in this budget I believe I have two options to choose from;
1. City 2013-2014 model
2. Civic reborn 09-10 model

My usage is 4000-5000km per month on motorways.

Due to extensive travelling I need a pretty reliable car for long routes. I know I can get 1-2 years used city, but I personally like civic reborn, if I go for civic i'dget 5 years used car.
I need your expert opinion that if you were me, which one would you choose?

Is 5 years used civic reborn a reliable car, mechanically and electronically? I understand that it depends how someone kept it but I am asking a general overview.

I know one year used city is more reliable than 5 years old civic, but normally 5 years old civic is more expensive to keep?

Fuel consumption is not an issue.
