I just got a lancer.. was thnking about city but went for lancer in the end.
Pros: japanese assembled
slightly less fuel efficient (you can also cater for that if you drive carefully, mine does 12-15 in heavy traffic)
more expensive spare parts, however spare parts prices have also be reduced 60%
also honda has local parts like door-rubber etc and i was told that there are quite a few factory defects.
liana.. i'd not recomment. liana has lots ofoptions.. but not worth it.
