the discussion should come to an end now. just get a manual vitz and an XLi and check.
all i can say is that a friend (and fellow pakwheeler) has a 1.3L rolla AND a 1.0L vitz and the rolla slaps the vitz around silly. granted the vitz is auto but still,...
just get 2 pakwheelers with these 2 cars and bloody check them once and for all.
i'm a vitz owner, and like i said before my auto is no match for a 1.3 rolla, anyone who claims their manual vitz is faster than a 1.3 rolla should just go out and test their claims.
