Altis will better but what u need to care abt is the Roadtax...
1.8 roadtax..expensive man...
FC is higher thn City but the maintainance is lower than City...

City... u need to take care abt the the gearbox...wrong GB oil will ended up loosing more thn 20k for a GB..Roadtax..1.5..haha...very cheap onli...maintanance...of coz high..honda ma...
FC superb... saw in my very own eye...1 tank petrol 600km...but how much?? not sure abt it...

1.8 road tax is only 280+ per year

wrong gearbox oil is because car workshops mistakenly put normal auto gear oil which cannot use for CVT. just go back to the honda service center to change transmission fluid

so the city FC is low compare to Altis. I heard rumours that Honda City has the ECU on above half rim of the tyre. Means that the ECU is very near to the bottom of the road. So when flooding....the ECU will damage?

If flood...everything also will gone le... ECU will not damage if u can rescue the ecu once after it get flooded..

some car like subaru, the ecu oso located at the floor pan there...passenger side...or mitsubishi, under dash compartment...if flood, oso kena one...

so when flood, dun drive...tat's all.

City FC of coz will better than Altis, they are different CC category..one is 1.5 and another one is 1.8...city comes with 2 version, I-Dsi and Vtec...

both not the same level at all, even the pricing and quality built also totally different, Vtec 1.5 should be compare against Vios 1.5. Altis 1.8 should compare against Civic 1.8.

If u want direct comparison definately Altis 1.8G is better. Its all depend on your budget. Roadtax wise anything not exceed 2000cc is not much,the insurance premium u should be more worried about as they are charge according to the totally value of the car.:regular_smile:
