Sir my budget was good but i still went for city.....reasons welll....i dont intend on running my car on cng so on petrol the consumption of city is better. 2nd reason is the driving pleasure is more in a city and i drive my car myself, incase driver ka scene hota tau i might have considered Gli. Only drawback i find in the city USE WISE is the seat comfort....as one of my friends once sat for a ride in my city (that guy himself owns a cherry qq) , his first comment was....iski seats wattay ki bani hain kya?..thats it..if ur fine with that then the rest is all good about city. The interior quality is another issue which in my opinion doesnt matter too much kyun k Gli may bhee koi leather trim blah blah bling bling nahee ata...its just somewhat better.
Some people say the citys cokpit space is less but id say itna bhee kum nahee hay...of course its cabin isnt as big as a Gli but its good enough for the purposes for which a Gli wud most prolly be used.
Resale isnt too much of a consideration for me so im fine with the city but lets say if it WAS a big factor then i wuda definitely given more weightage to Gli.
Overall i think the upcoming Altis 1.6 is a better option to wait for n meanwhile arrange the added 1 lac which u will be needing alongwith 15.5 to get it into ur porch otherwise if it HAS TO BE between city n Gli then u have to suit ur own needs....if u want a ride which goes everywhere...best resale...very good seat comfort...spacious....soft suspension n is ok if doesnt give above 14.5 km/l on long route then Gli is ur car but if u want good accelerations...awesome looks....awesome fuel consumptions at reduced speeds like driving at 80 in 5th gear u can easily grab above 19km/l....awesome airconditioner despite hard seats then City is ur car. Hope my opinion is of some help. Cheers!
