Right now , i have axio 2007 and city 2008 auto tranny.(city is only 20K driven so it is in good shape). axio is 1500cc and city is 1300c but axio mileage is better then city. suspension,comfort,build quality wise axio is far ahead from city. i usually drive axio below 2000RPM and i can feel the power but when it comes to city i feel the same power when the RPM crosses 3000. both cars are nice but you can only find a good axio above 15lacs unregistered. if you are really right on your budget then corolla x is the one you should look for.
