@@ Firmsoft!! Before booking my xli, I was considering Liana as well!! Though car looks good, but whenever i disussed that with any body, people said dont go for LIANA, dont go for LIANA, i dont know why!! Did some more spadework and when i saw the production and sales figures of LIANA of the whole year (on the Pak Auto Mobile Manufactures Website (PAMA), i got shocked, it was tooo low!! LIANA units were sold too less in the current year in 1300 cc category!! See below the figures

If your preference is Automatic Car, then there is a huge difference in LIANA price and City Price! Under this case u may go for LIANA!! But remmeber LIANA is 1600 cc and it will consume alot of fuel especially in case of automatic!! Initially LIANA eminent were imported, now it is being made in Pakistan (just confirm at your end from dealer) Resale of LIANA eminent will be least! If you are good in buying used, u can check 2006 civic prosmatic too! its a nice car and u may get around Rs. 9-10 lacs
Regarding registration, i think it will take maximum 2 days!! Who said 1 month..........? Your dealer will arrange your registration and take few service charges of that, around 2500 to 3500 extra!! Besides tax and registration chalan!
If your preference is not necessarily automatic, then evaluate more critically the Nissan Sunny (try and check imported one too) or go for XLI---- Belive me people criticise me that i did not book GLI, but trust me XLI is a hard cash, whenever u try to sell, buyers will be so much!!
Whether someone buy xli at 1239000 or altis at around 1800000, it will remain corolla!! but there is a difference between LIANA and XLI !! You are buying the expensive/highest category of LIANA, just try to jump at the lowest category of Corolla and u will have a batch and brand name of corollla!!
Never wanted to hurt u by changing your decision but just above was the evaluation for your decision making!!
