sure wud like to put in sum info here in response to the same questions. but before i do that let me tell u dat my other 2 cars are a corolla se saloon 2003 and a Vitz auto 2003 so dat you shud know wot i am comparing this city with.
1 Hows the pick and its acceleration on a 3k continuous RPM? i dont know y u asking abt a ccontinous rpm, but i was surprised and still am abt the acceleration of this car is rediculously quick for an auto.
2 Any experience with a 0-80km/hr in x seconds?
Havent really calculated but as i said its very quick it quicker than any 1.3 i have driven in pak, this includes corolla Liana, baleno, city vario, i have to try real hard to beat it with my se saloon on moving start. and yet its an auto.
3 Does it make you feel a gear shift? a slight jhatka or is it smooth?
Yes there is a slight jerk not irritating but u feel it unlike Vitz since im driving dat as well i feel it, its more like an aggressive shift than a jerk, and when u are really speeding n put ur foot down the shift is just awsome its just like you are drivin a manual car. you gain atleast 20 km jump with a shift.
4 Hows the suspension and its experience on bumpy roads?
Handling is better than any its so low and tight on the road just wudnt let go off the road brilliant suspension. smooth drive not as comfy as corolla on small bumps. but nothing to complain abt.
5 Braking (is it 4 wheel disc brakes?). How good is the braking in terms of emergency braking (does it slips?)
its 2 wheel front disks n rear drums, if u have geniune pads installed the car has spot on breaks obviously dont match the abs but abt a 100 times better than corolla trust me. dont skid, if u have desi break pads the paddle becomes very sensitive and u just apply too much breaks un wantedly that might result into skidding a little. umair u probably got them desi ones installed i can tell . joke neva mind..
