I want to select a manual transmission car for daily running office use. Can knowledgeable members please guide on the following issues for each of the three cars (Wagon-R, Cultus, Swift):
1 - Actual city and highway mileages for manual variants
2 - Comparative spare parts costs
3 - Difference between versions of each car (for some reason, Suzuki has a useless 90's era Flash-obsessed website).
4 - Top two cars out of the three and your opinion on why you consider them the best
Due to usage requirements, good mileage, reliable operation for at least 5 years, low recurring/running costs and low spare parts cost (in case of accident) are of importance.
Resale is desired but only of secondary concern after above points. Swift is a bit above the budget but could be considered if it offers something exceptional over the other two. Any navigation options are not needed.
Also, JDMs are not required nor desired for this role.
Looking forward to your inputs.
