Scenario: Selling my 2010 Vios 1.5G AT and downgrading.
RFS: Downgrading; extra funds for business opportunity
I decided to sell my Vios, because I'm having a hard time finding a good deal for my B13 which I'm also selling but then I decided to just keep it. My B13 is AT, so I definitely wanted to have a manual ride. A gasoline Manual tranny is preferred since I also own an Accent CRDi manual. Gas/Manual combo is still sweeter, smoother ride than a diesel no matter how powerful it is imho.
I'm so confused.
Few weeks ago, I'm very much sold to the idea of downgrading to a gen 3 Lynx Ghia/RS.
Nice engine and handling, manual transmission and full packed with features for less than the price of equivalent Civic or Altis. That should be a deal. I'm particulaly impressed of the standard features, ABS, airbag, sunroof, leather, CD, sunshade, 4 discs, 15-16" mags, power everything plus heck lot more interior room and trunk space etc. Thing is, heard that Lynx aren't so fuel efficient, dunno if same holds true with manual tranny models.
Getz CRDi comes to mind. I totally forgotten about this model. And since I'm very much familiar with their glorious engine (I also own an Accent CRDi with averages 16km/l city). Frugality and practicality not to mention the prodigious torque. I just happen to realize to consider this last night as a blazing red Hyundai Getz CRDi went past every car in its way. HEY! I happen to remember that's a monster motor in a small subcompact hatch. hmmmmmm
Downside is the lack of safety features (no abs, airbag, no rear discs), lots of missing features against the Lynx (no power folding mirrors, leather, sunroof, 15" mags, sunshade etc) and lesser cabin space.
I like the Lynx for what it is, but it seems that the Getz could be easier to maintain and run. ( I travel about 50-80kms a day)
Now I'm so confused.
Which would you choose?
