    Default Resale value of new shape Vitz?

    Does the new shape Vitz 2005 and onwards have a good resale value as compared to old shape 2004 and earlier? I was told that the new shape may not have a good resale value as its 3 cylinder and cannot be converted to CNG in Pakistan so its resale value may not be that good as compared to the 2004 and earlier models.

    ^ Its as gud as the old one, u can go for one eyes closed.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Thanks for the clarification guys.

    Hi Chinyoti. Yes at the moment I'm using a 2004 FL Vitz since the last 4 years and no problems whatsoever. Great car compared to the local ones and always having arguments with my friends who prefer local cars than JDMs

    I was thinking of shifting to the new shape but many told me that its spare parts are not freely available and due to 3 cylinder does not have good resale, not enough power etc etc, but I see alot of 2005 and onwards models running on the roads

    Yup the car lacks power, i drove a 2006 model recently, the cars got too much noise as u drive. Bhrrrrr

    But still if u want to upgrade its a realy nice option compared to what we have localy avalible, Other then that you have the option to opt for the 1.3L variant.

    Parts are no issue, u see dozens and dozen of vitzes imported now n then

    Yes thats the only issue with the 3 cylinder and the other is CNG but i hate CNG and prefer petrol.

    The other options I have are the Corolla X and Belta. So deciding between the two also with a budget of about 11 lacs Do you have any idea about the Belta and Corolla X?

    Nops no idea about the Corolla X or the Belta, But i realy liked Belta, but every body know told me not to as its extremly under powered, Since it shares the same 3 Cylinder engine in the Vitz.

    Btw my neighbour replaced their Vitz 04, with Vitz 06, then now he has a 2011 Swift, hes quite happy.

    go for "COROLLA X" bro , really comfortable cmpare with local corollas , n shape is also gud ...
    if want to buy belta then u should go for vitz also , the dffrnce is only "DIGGI" , nothing else ....
    engine is same ...
    but i think belta is available in 1000cc 4 cylinders , but i suggest u for "COROLLA X" after all it is JDM and 1300cc with 4 cylinders ....

    thats is not profit, its devaluation of your money, after 3 years, the same amount is worth nothing then.

    i bought my Vitz for 635, if i sell it even for 650, what do i get in that amount today? So wheres profit?

    you cannot even get a Mehran VXR CNG, which is now for 6,05,000/- add 5,000 for metallic color and adding insurance & registration cost & OWN, it will go beyond 650k

    Resale is amazing...Parts r no more problem n easily available in big cities...Cng is a problem ......

    but who cares because its mileage is superb ...13 14 km/l with AC in city n 17 18 km/l on highway with AC..... U should go fr it with closed eyes because it will give u profit when u will sell it .........

    Thanks Guganali,

    I think I will have to choose the Vitz against the Corolla X or Belta coz at the moment my budget is only about 10 lacs...............Will have to make a decision as soon as I get the finances and sell my current Vitz 2004.

    Any idea how much I should demand. Its 2004 FL with minor scratches but in good condition.

    So I should demand about 840k and then come down to about 820k? Are the prices the same in Lahore as in Karachi because there may be a diff in prices of Lahore and Karachi i think.........

    ^ One can find a 2005 Vitz for around 850ish, i guess the real market for 2004 Cars is around 775-800, But still i can be wrong.

    Do a bit home work, see how much people are asking, then decide your demand ,

    Out of karachi, i.e lahore, Islamabad, cars are easily 20-50k more higher priced.
