If you go back in this thread and read my comments, I have nothing but praises for this car. But I have just come back from a trip to galiyat on my reborn, and now when I think about the practicality, I am not so sure anymore if I'd buy one. I don't know, I am confused now. It probably all depends on what we get here. If we get the turbo engine with cvt at the same price as the outgoing model, then off course it's an easy decision.
But still with longer wheelbase and low ground clearance, it'll be a pain to drive here. Let's say the top model comes at 2.5 mil in september next year, add your reg/tax and you are looking at 2.6-2.7 mil. 5 grade 2014 vezel's asking price is already at 2.8 mil and I expect it to go down to 2.5 mil by mid next year. So why would I want to buy a civic, just for show and shashka ?
