No offenses. I know everbody of u have vast experience.
But I have owned both Cultus and Vitz at different point of times. I havnt driven EFI Cultus. Remember that I owned a 99 model manual Vitz!!!
My conclusion is pretty obvious...
-With the quality that SUZUKI is giving in Cultus, it would atleast take 1300 cc suzuki engine to beat a 1000cc vvti manual transmission Vitz.
-As regards comfort (sombody talked about shock absorbers), it is injust to compare Vitz with Cultus. No I have a 2005 SE Saloon 1600cc Corolla. Vitz was more comfortable!!!
-As regards braking and grip, I tested vitz brakes against 2005 VTI Oriel (ABS) of my bro and trust me I outbraked him.
To cut the long story short, to me this comparison is not apple to apple. Ur doing like HELL vs HEAVEN!!!
