Even the basic civic is better than the new corolla in terms of specs.
Get a civic with the new android based navigation and enjoy a trouble free 10 years
This car has reasonable mileage, spares easily available, the Honda mechanics do routine tuning - they know what to do and you've a nice comfortable car which has all safety features found in family cars abroad.
Byung a JDM prius or second hand Mercedes will have its own issues... You won't know if it's accidented, what it's true mileage is. And if you want a genuine car, you will have to import it yourself which has its own hassles.
In Pakistan, buy a PKDM. The civic won't let you down in anyway.
It's shape isn't changing for the next few years. They've upgraded the navigation system and that's about it for now.
If you're very keen to buy an import, then read about review about such cars on this forum explaining their maintenance costs - you wont find any. Because the owners don't want to tell anyone it costs thousands to just get the oil changed of their German executive c class (which costs as much a civic) from an authorised dealership (ie shahnawaz) - I'm sure you won't want your precious imported car to be fixed by a road side mechanic called 'bubloo' who has a screw driver and a hammer as his 'high tech' tools.
There, I've explained it to you. I was in the same fix as you last year. And we bought a civic. Even though we could get a reasonable import in that price, I'm glad we chose a PKDM..
It's safe and reliable.
Hope this clears up the matter.
Now go buy a civic. In silver. Get the tyres changed immediately. And enjoy driving
