    though these 2 cars are similar in size there is a world of difference in them. the vitz (though used) is a much safer car and even with all these built in safety features it offers a level of safety for the occupants that the local swift can only dream about.

    if you consider that the swift has a larger engine than most vitz on the road then it is clear that the lighter (lower specced) swift with a more torquey engine has to work less hard to get moving then it is clear that the savings will be apparent at the filling station,.. but then it should be compared to the 1.3 vitz,.. but sadly since our markets are overprotected by the local mafia even a used 1.3 vitz is unable to compete in price with the new swift as duties are unrealistic.

    until duties are not lowered and international cars are allowed to compete with local cars our general public will not be aware of the benefits of imports and they will keep buying local cars with pathetic safety features.

    however, i should point out that currenly the new swift is by far the best locally produced car. but it is NOT in any way comparable with the MUCH safer vitz.

    Definetly agree to what storm said about the consumption part but what i disagree{ in my opinion } is lowering the tax on 1.3 cars...its not just about choices and competition...these are just theoratically correct, in reality govts. carry out CBA analysis{Cost-Benefit-Analysis} to make economic decisions....even in currents period look at where our currency is going, look at how fast its loosing its value...increasing imports mean furthur increasing import-export deficit furthur putting pressure on ruppee to decrease its value....

    I hate what PPP is currently doing to our nation but on the other hand i stand by their decision of increasing taxes on all luxury cars...For God sake have mercy on pakistans economy...

    As for vitz vs swift: What i dont understand is the way people think in pakistan...clearly buying a car from "Used Car Dealers" is just stupidity because if they dont commit fraud, how will they earn profit....By Fraud i mean reversing the mileage....its simple e.g if u sell ur car through a newspaper,the first customer would most likely be a dealer....hell buy that car frm u at a market price or a slightly lower and then revers its mileage and sell it for 30-40k more...so buying cars imported or local from dealers is just stupidity{ again my opinion }...the 06/07 vitz models are equipped good with options but then again they cost too much around 12.5 lakhs and are used aswell and u dnt have the correct mileage on them and u dnt know how thay have been used...
    Vitz have higher maintainence cost, clearly expensive parts and not availaible everywhere...
    Yesterday i talked to a dealer in Blue area and he said himself that vitz market has slowed down since the launch of swift...

    Wait for automatic and cng versions of new swift, they will Hit the vitz market like anything...

    mr storm please explain yr "So MUCH SAFER" thoughts with some valid proof.

    Even if you compare it with 1.3 vvti vitz then the comparo is as follows.

    Vitz 1.3vvti = 1293 cc(aka indus corolla engine) while 1.3 swift = M13a (1321cc much much torquier than 1.3 vitz)

    vitz = air bags while swift = no airbags (the only short fall)

    vitz = no rim no decent tyres while swift = dunlop with 15'' alloys.

    vitz = no EBD while swift has EBD

    vitz = no noise canceling of engine and road nose while swift = special padding for both.

    vitz = no warranty with 1 or 2 piece touch up. while swift is brand new and has warranty too.

    for vitz cosmetic parts (go to shershah) while for swift simply go to local suzuki dealer and have one.

    the list just goes on and on, while this is a comparo between 1.3 vs 1.3 and since there are more than 99% vitz are of 1.0l category so the vitz has no chance to compare itself with more aggressive and good looking swift (as simple as that). go to top gear website and see for yourself that what they have to say about both cars.

    Storm is basically talking about the airbags.

    Swift wins and is a much better buy then vitz.
    - Swift brand new 10 lacks whereas vitz used is arnd 9
    - Swift parts cheap as compared to vitz
    - Swift parts easily available everywhere
    - Swift is manual
    - Swift is 1.3
    - Swift comes stock with alloys and dunlop tires.
    - Swift maintenance cost is less then that of vitz.

    Even though all this is true i still prefer my vitz superior.

    Sorry Yaar.

    Anyways, let's let time do the talking and i'm damn sure that the Swift is gonna really hurt the market of vitz. Vitz n jitna chal na tha chaal gaye hai. Only the people who already own it will have it around. Doubt there will be alot more fresh impports like before.

    airbags safety is not their n swift

    but i will prefer ABS with EBD over it...then comes airbags ...so still it has alot to offer

    vitz and swift now cant be compared at all

    a 1.3 vitz new will cost almost double the price of new swift and still without warranty

    as far as new swift has imported parts its good...

    as Storm said best car in production so far

    but vitz drive is very good..specially the auto transmission...

    vitz s a good car...but it will suffer as price tag for this make huge difference

    vitz = most sluggish accelertaion comparable to 1987 nissan sunny thats true.

    Swift = faster than corolla 1.3xli/gli i have tested many times

    Hows that.

    1.3 at low RPM = greater fuel economy
    while 1.0 at same speed = high rpm = low fuel economy.

    Compare it by driving it on highway then check the fuel consumption of both cars.

    And btw all of the imported vitz are of very very high mileage with 2 or 3 or in some time the whole body repainted ones. As the low mileage ones with no scratch at all with 5a grade cost almost 8 to 9 lacks in japan (excluding duty+fare+dealer profit+investor profit+govt miscl expenses_ so decide for yourself that even if a dealer is giving you unregistered 2006 or 2007 model swift at 9 to 9.5 lacs rupees than whats the story behind it.

    given choice i would opt for swift .. with an auto tranny it would be amazing..

    vtz again, its 3-4 year old available here..
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    No comparison bw vitz and new swift
    coz
    vitz in pakistan is 1.0
    and swift is 1.3
    so power wise swift is way bettr thn vitz

    new swift shd compare with
    Corolla xli,gli liana and city. . .

    further, airbags carries heavy repairing costs too.. again low speed crashes would only popup airbags, while high speed might not save any..
