Personally i think it's pretty good idea. I don't see anything wrong with it. Still you get the city as another option while it being a brand new vehicle still importing 13-14 used imported vitz wouldn't have been abused much. I'm saying this just because a good clean genuine import is hard to come by and a lot of dealers well most of them rip you off. If you have the time and the know how of self importing the vehicle your self with contacts and all it would be just perfect.
Ladies in my family drives the auto/manual swift. More like making it the ultimate ladies of the family car despite the fact i keep on telling them to get vitz instead and they reply with saying "Go cry to your Mamu/chachu don't come at me with your technicalities".
Still, bottom line if you are willing for a brand new car with kind of hard suspensions (bare with me Honda fanboys) with warranty and parts availability (expense wise) go for the city if you are okay with a JDM import, with most probably upto 10k km driven, well made, enjoyable drive vehicle go for the vitz.
