    Default How is Vitz/Mira/Alto ? Suggestions required.

    Hello there everybody !

    I am in hunt fo a decent car in a budget of around 800k. According to my requirements (comfort,economy,reliabilty) I see that many 660cc imports fit my budget. However One personal issue I have is that the size of these cars is almost same as PKDM Alto as well as having non-independant rear suspension. I drive a PKDM Alto currently and so I know how unforgiving it is on the roads of Karachi and sometimes it feels cramped with front pasenger and 3 more in the back. So I am not sure how much of an upgrade I would really be getting by opting for Mira or Alto and how these cars behave on our beloved roads.
    One other thing that comes to my mind is that a 2002-2005 Vitz is also within range and it is certainly bigger in space and has semi-independant rear suspension too. I have riden in this car and it did feel very comfortable and cabin space was ample due to the body being wider.

    So I am confused about what will be the better option since I havn't actually driven these 660cc cars. They are certainly new but comfort wise I am doubtful where as the Vitz is comfortable but being such an old car is another problem altogether. Is it a good idea to buy the old Vitz ? Is there any chance I can find one in good condition (no work required) that fits my budget and the mileage is under 70k?
    Or should I just go for the newer model Mira/Alto ? I request the Mra/Alto owners to help me out here by sharing their experience with these cars. Do these cars have stiff suspension or soft ones ?
    And also guide me about the parts availabilty of Mira/Alto/Vitz. Are they available readily from PLaza or would I regularly be visiting Sher Shah or other scrap markets ?

    Thanks !

    You will not get clean Vitz in this budget. Anyhow, you can find Alto/Mira 2006-2007 model in this range. And these cars are very much good in comfor as compared to PKDM.

    Bro you can get a clean vitz 2002/2004 Model in This Budget .other good option is 2005 /2006 Passo
    in 8 lakhs you can get Passo in karachi .all cars are available from dealers etc
    if you prefer good ride / handling / comfort ec over economy and maintenance cost etc then go for JDM Alto
    i am not sure but i do believe it parts will be cheaper then vitz/passo
    i can't say anything about Mira economically as i don't have any idea about its parts
    last i prefer 1000/1300 cc (vitz/passo) over 660cc any day
    my vote in order of preference
    vitz
    passo
    mira
    Alto
    Best of Luck

    Well Mira and Alto pkdm have a hell difference in comfort. Mira is as much as comfortable as any big Sedan. However if u want Power+Comfort+Cheap Spares. The Best bet will be a 2007 Passo. You Can easily find one in your budget. The Seats r super Comfortable, All Spares Available. AT tranny so no lag issues like in Vitz. Maintainence Parts Easily Available. And is very easy to drive in Khi's ugly traffic. I have kept Pkdm Alto too and im sure u will feel like your in heaven after even buying a JDM Mira/Alto.

    I sat in a colleague's Mira today. It's a fantastic car. I thought 660cc would have hard time climbing uphill but according to him, he took this car to Naran/Kaghan without issues at all. Consumption he stated was like 25 kmpl on highway which, for a moment i did not believe. Most striking feature, it's hell spacious.

    Why not buy a 2000-2005 Civic, you can find good cars in your budget as well!

    Finding a used clean civic is almost mission impossible in khi. The ones available r mostly showred or heavily touched up and with engines raped on CNG. And mileage above 80k alteast
    Those having clean ones demand insanely high for it. I.e 11-12 lacs
    Civic is heavy on fuel aswell being 1. 6

    Civic or any other sedan will be too big and high maintainence(tax and petrol).
    Vitz/passo/mira/alto are suitable choices. Btw does anybody know how vitz and passo compare to mira/alto in terms of comfort/performance ?
