    Default Toyota IST or Toyota Vitz

    Hello fellow members!!..a couple of months back i came across a car which i couldnt figure out..i thought it was some model of vitz..but 2 days back i saw a car like that again n came to know that its not actually a vitz but IST...i think its much better than vitz in all aspects..its headlamps r more angular n give it a more agressive look rather than oval shaped like vitz have...we cannot compare both these cars with each other as they dont lie in the same category (engine wise) but we can compare them looks wise..both r of the same size..it has a better looking interior than vitz...IST comes in a 1.3L n a massive 1.5L petrol engine..Daayyym!!..guys what do u think?? which one is better?

    I agree with guncha the IST is indeed a better car than the vitz, but in that price it should be compared to something like an RS or 1.5litre T-sport yaris/vitz:




    Toyota IST or Toyota Vitz -657520


    Toyota IST or Toyota Vitz -657521


    Toyota IST or Toyota Vitz -657522


    Toyota IST or Toyota Vitz -657523

    yaar i think u shud not go for any of the cars ,,,,,,,,,imported cars are getting very bad beating now ,,,,,,,,,,,,,bcoz of in availability of parts,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,as the report on GEO showed on saturday,,,,,,,,

    so go for a good pakistani HONDA only instead of wasting ur money on the toooo costly IST

    That geo report was a complete drama........ i wanted to slap on that reporter's face and on GEO's team for staging this pathetic drama and there were definitely funded by the local assemblers who have lost their sleep bc of the loss on monopoly that they have been always experiencing..... they way he went into the factories, that stupid was emphasizing that the parts made here are of inferior quality, well that gives one more reason to buy an imported car as at least all it's parts when purchased are foreign made.......... such rubbish....... what a bad name it has brough to geo........... just for some extra money........ shame on geo's staff..........

    The IST is actually the Scion label for US. Its a good lineup..they have around three models in US...the TC is the best.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    @hamdani_08
    Giving advice like you did is probably why some people on this site think that we are the blind leading the bling. How can you compare the local garbage to a vehicle made in japan??

    as far as i know the local stuff is WAY over priced, and 2nd hand jap cars are sweet deals. Please don't just look at 0-60 times when talking about a car, think about what you are getting for your money.

    @ storm bhai,,,,,,,,,,,,

    u think that IST is better than a civic ????? bcoz for 950k u can easily get 2004 VTI ,,,,,,,,,,,,if u say this then i think u have to rethink ,,,,,,,,,,,bcoz whatever quality issues local cars have,,,,,,,,IST can not be better than a civic

    what i wud like to say that imported cars are fascinating ppl at this time but the real problem wud start when they get 3-4 years old,,,,,,,,,,,when there wud be no parts and no dealer to contact ,,,,,,,,,,

    this stupid type of import without parts hasnt happened in any country except pakistan,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    whenever cars are imported into a country ,,,,proper dealers are there who are responsible for spares and service which is not the case for pakistan

    so my advice ,,,do not go for imported cars

    Hamdani i dont know where you are comeing from,the parts are avail in the market for most cars which have been imported.

    In karachi you can find anything.

    And to say there wont be parts for so many cars which have been imported is silly,as i am a businessman and i see a lack of parts id import them to fill the void and to make money of it.

    Its already being done,and IF there is something you cant find for your imported car (this to everyone) give me a call and will get it for you.

    Also if a part is not avail which is highly unlikey then it can be got from dubai withen a week.

    As for your point about dealers not being there after 3 years,then all i can say is they are not the proper dealers but barsati maindaq.Who have flooded the market.

    But us who have been in this business for generations will be here and if we sell a car then we will do whatever it takes to make sure the customer is happy and comes back to us no short term thing.

    And for your knowledge there are people who are importing spares and parts,body kits etc.Just come to karachi and visit Plaza.

    So its being done in Pakistan too.
