Walaikum salam, technologically the belta wins, 1.3 that is. But if running cost and resale is considered, se saloon hands down. The saloon being a 1.6 has good performance, but being a 2003-2005 corolla, has no brakes. The handling can be improved by bigger rims and tires, which will also make the braking better. Belta being a vitz with a trunk, so if you find, a non abused, well maintained, outclass condition 1.3 belta, opt for it. Else, corolla all the way.
Ps major part of the decision also lies on the usage
