    Default New Civic X turbo or Mark X 2006 250G?

    ASSALAM O ALIKUM,dear members i'm confused between these mentioned two cars.concerns are somewhat:
    1.Accleration
    2.Comfort
    3.Good ground clearance
    4.less loss after 2 or 3 years
    5.less maintenance.

    1.Accleration: Can't comment but both should be decent. Civic will be newer though with peace of mind that it hasn't been abused by previous owner.
    2.Comfort: Mark X
    3.Good ground clearance: Civic
    4.less loss after 2 or 3 years: Both will incur loss
    5.less maintenance: Civic will only need oil and filter change for quite sometime.

    one is 10 year old, other is brand new...
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    If you want a daily runner then civic but if you want to have real fun then mark x 300g premium all the way but it can only be used as a second car because maintainence of mark x is much expensive and coz of being10 years old you might face some issues wid the car if used daily.
    Civic turbo might be a little faster then mark x but it can no way come close to a mark x in comfort level and drive feel.
    Civic turbo would depreciate more then mark x coz mark x 300g premium has already depreciated alot from 3million to about 2.3million.
    My choice would be mark x given only i had other cars for routine use.

    No comparison between these two, neither in pricing nor brand positioning.

    Mark X is in a different league altogether, which is positioned above other Toyota brands like Premio, Altis, Corolla, etc. Civic X is a direct competitor of Altis Grande.

    It depends upon your priorities; 0 meter car PKDM Vs. 11 year old JDM. Plus Mark X can be easily bought within 2M, which leaves a pricing gap of 1M+ for Civic X Turbo.

    Drive of Mark X is far superior any day, but do keep in mind its condition would be deteriorated now, while Civic would be brand new. At the end of the day, it boils down to budget, and these cars are not within the same budget category.

    Look for 2006 onward mark x 300 premium models which are supercharged producing 316 bhp six speed auto. With around 8 lacs in pocket to spare its hardly timing chain and steering/ shock rubber bushes and brake pads/ service required and transmission fluid change which cam easily be done under Rs 60,000 rest change brand new tyres, plugs and radiator and ac service. Lastly get it detailed.
    If you find a good mark x 2006 or 2007 model at 2.3 million and spend 1.5 lacs on restoration/ maintenance. . You get a car which looks good runs better superior build quality and above all larger road presence. Its still modern than civic being a decade old.
    Civic turbo will sell for 27 lacs after a year and mark x might earn you a couple after a year.

    Mark x 300g never came with a super charger producing 318hp.
    The super charged one came in 2nd gen mark x in 2009 which is also 350g.

    i used to own markx 250G, now i have ordered civic x turbo.....my advice is go for civic turbo coz most of the parts r hard to find for markx not oil filter or airfilter but other parts which u have to source it out from used car parts area like shershah in Khi. 2ndly if u r going to sell markx later it wont be easy as selling civic as one is more than 10 yrs old and other is brand new.

    markx 300G did came in supercharged, a friend had it long time back. 2009+markx 350G also came in supercharged very limited only 200 were made in Japan.


    From wikipedia:

    The Mark X Supercharged version uses the 3GR-FSE engine with a supercharger added.[6] Power output is 316 horsepower (236 kW) at 6200 rpm and 42.0 kilogram metres (412 N?m; 304 lbf?ft) at 3200 rpm, paired to a six-speed auto transmission.
    A limited edition 50th Anniversary Supercharged Mark X was produced with the Vertiga kit. It has chrome ducts and carbon fiber splitters as standard parts.[7]
