Facelift Civic (November 2004 onwards, AFZ number) Eagle Eye has no ABS, but 4 wheel Discs, previously we owned the 2001 7th gen Civic, it has rear drums.
My uncle has a 98 VTI with 4 wheel Disc, 7th gen Civic (both eagle eye and before face lift) has better brakes then 98 VTI 4 wheel discs.
2005 Exi Eagle eye only looks goods, cosmetic changes in exterior, interior, I would go for a 2001 VTI any day.
But the important thing is the condition of car, a well kept Honda South maintained EXI would be much better then a roughly kept VTI.
Eagle Eye Exi in excellent condition, with around 70K driven, will cost you around .85M to .95M for PROSMATIC.
PROSMATIC is real gem, whether it is Exi or Vti, specially for a city like Karachi, they are more reliable also, to some extent.
2001 VTI in a good condition will cost you around .75M.
