totally agree on your prices for the cars.
as for the 13.1lac justification ... utter nonsense! 1.5L ivtec in india and malaysia even after the conversion costs lower than what we get...and please do not impose the point that if we bring the car here the taxes will make it expensive.
the point is if they can build a better and reasonable car so can we.
shitty 2009 is over priced and if there is 1 reason i would say ... but look at the last pics i posted and tell me if i am
wrong when i say this:
imagine the old city shape with new i-vtec engine and 4 wheel disc brakes with abs+ba+ebd in the same price as today 13.1lacs. that could have been a arguement by atlas honda, but what to do now ???? cheap plastics and crappy old stereo with front 2 speakers and some other good features like no stop lamp and no fog lights and a super cheap fuel lid opener are just pathetic! in 13.1;acs the indian car in 1.3L engine would be justified...that would have cleaned house and could have been said as a great car!!!!
as for the xli and gli engines we are getting 7 years old engines which were used in the vitz and platz era , the world advanced to dual vvti and vvtli but we are given newly manufactured old engines.....yes research and laugh there!
as for the point on the perfect world, we have manpower and cheap labor along with other goodies which have reduced manufacturing costs globally due to the industrial globalisation....all cars globally have the same manufacturing standards but the main disadvantage is the taxes! hence the car companies are infact looting us! compare all known city 2009 models
with currency converion and you will see that this new city should be 11.5 lacs and no more but yes more less according to any explanation!
last thing man ... any 1.3L car is better than this thing in features! engine cannot cost that much and neither does human intelligence.....reconsider the thought and evaluate what we want...we need a better cae aka with features a little reasonable in the price it costs!!!!!!!
the mecjanical brake is latest innovation man , even better than the front disc with brake assist and rear brake with abs!!!! Sheesh !!!!!
indian car is the bomb, it is the steermatic replacement! wish we had a 1.3 in that and the same car .....
dream on man ... in 1.5 lacs you will only get auto transmission according to the rules of looterapanna and ghundagardee of atlas and indus motors. the people overhyped the 1.3 city new one and see what we got ... a worthless underdog stripped of all goodies and on a overpriced price!!!!!!!
this is a city thread and evryone has a free point of view...the things is that all the prices including the new city are overspeced and hyped and artificially created. if someone says dollar rate and petrol prices are the reason then unfortunately you are 75% misguided. the overloaded taxes of the government and the company of manufacturing are the main reasons! as for the people who are commenting on the worst model city the older model could have been given at the same price with newer engine...think on this point and that in the same 13.1lacs. what are you getting ???
you got that rite ... 13.1Lacs may aachi cars with better features availible hain (Y)
the prices are for the affording and sorry to say this...to make us idiots and fools. the rich and corrupt class is reaping profits on this and we are sitting ducks here....you are right on this that the people who earn halal are facing problems and the haram eaters are in pleasure!!!! totally valid point on incomes (Y) i salute you there !!!!
man any 1.3L car is better loaded and priced in its features than this car .... agreed on your point (Y)
