My Dear I own both City n Corolla 2011,
Ride of Corolla is much better and trim finish of city is way behind Corolla. On road city respond well when u push the pedal but corrolla is very comfortable and responds well on bumpy roads.Corolla has bigger room and aggressive in looks where is city is sporty.Resale of both the cars is no issue as city has gained its market reputation.
Fuel economy of city is 10% better than corolla and if this matters than your choice.
Rest is your choice, don't be confused just go with choice.
