Since I own both;
1. Lancer GLX 1.6 A/T 2006
2. City Vario 1.3 A/T 2007
I can give an unbiased opininon, Lancer does not have a match with Honda city, I have yet to compare it with Prosmatec but I am sure it will proved to be of same class if not less.
Now don't talk about resale, this is because of the dealers monoply (bhair-chaal) and they always try their best that buyers keep on buying shit and nothing else, for the same reasons, suzukis and corrollas have been the market leaders in pakistan for ages and you all know that they are always overpriced and in case of suzuki, of poor quality too.
Drive a Lancer 1.6 A/T, you will feel the difference.
