    Both of them would do around 10-12kmpl in city driving and 16-18kmpl for long trips.Note that some owners have claimed about the steering rack noise(which is a common thing for most of the toyota’s due to SL roads).You’ll be able to squeeze out more kms if you are extremely lightfooted and drive like a granny Anyway when considering the fuel economy...just don’t think about it mate..they are cars with good fuel economies. So you’ll never get the low figures of a Cefiro or high figures of Hybrid. At the end of a long journey 1-2kmpl difference would likely to save you around 100 rupees.

    Strange number plates

    28- and 40- were not at all rare or strange. You can see these on many trucks. Most of the early Datsun/Nissan pickup trucks too came with 28- plates

    Between the two I'd go for the viva elite since it's newer and since it's a fun little car to drive. A similarly priced passo would be a bit more older. For a first car something simple like an elite will be a good choice.
  11. Since you are ok with indian hatches you might as well consider something like a March K11 those are bland but reliable cars that have been around for ages. You will be probably able to get a late 90s model for your budget specially since you're looking for a manual ( manuals are a lot cheaper)

    MG ZS 2018

    My Dynamic Red (2018-10 delivery) only got around 5-6 kmpl in colombo traffic. 8-9 in highway 100kmph (with 3 adults) nothing than refueling octane 95 Manage to resell for 4.4M last month. almost 6 lacks lose.
  13. Boy this conversation might have confused you to hell, let me share my bit if your your budget was towards the 18 mark an Indian will be a safer option because you can land a newer model, but at 13.5 you can get a much better jap, rather than the Indian ones at the price also cars from this era may not be as economical in terms of fuel but spares are cheap, and cars from this era have ample parts, cheap parts in many makes, simple services and you can run 92 oct, saving a bit more, and you are extremely LESS likely to lose money via depreciation through a jap car in this era, and mileage won’t also be a big deal as all are high, whereas Indian cars of your budget range when old fall apart, loose money and mileage concerns pop up, interiors are shabby and lack more, even road presence is less. Get a jap, You ll fall in love with it and develop a passion no one looks down on a well maintained clean jap car, whereas even a brand new Indian car is no head turner in our local context, they maybe good but it’s just the mentality here.
  14. Go for the Japanese or Euro ride. They’ll be far more comfortable and refined than the Alto and Zen. Also note that the Indian vehicles tend to show their age really faster than japs. Japs are safer too🙂

    Hello and welcome to the forum! Both of these cars are good in fuel economy and reliability. Viva elite is the malaysian counterpart of Daihatsu Mira so the car is almost the same. I know few owners and no one complained any fault about the Viva. For the price you pay you’ll be getting a 2004-2005 Passo and 2011-2012 Viva Elite. Passo will be a bit comfortable than the Viva. Passo will give you more running repairs due to the age and you’ll find most of them hacked to death. So IMO Viva Elite is the best bet when it comes to fuel economy and reliability. It’s just an average car with nothing to complain about.Good luck!

    1st car - Arround 2million

    Hi guys, I’m looking forward to buy my 1st car and need ideas from the expertise. My budget is from 2mil- 2.2mil. I need a car which is safe and with better fuel economy. I’m definitely not into Indian cars, so I have few options like Viva Elite, Toyota passo. Please be kind enough to give me a little feedback on these two cars and let me know if you guys have better options. Thank you

  19. Go for the Alto mate. But be wary of the rusting in the Indian model. Check thoroughly before buying.

    Strange number plates

    FW- and FP- were issued for dual purpose vehicles and lorries, similar to EA- series for cars
  27. It will depend on the car itself...if the car is hacked and in bad shape then even a Japanese car will cost a lot to maintain because it will have to be fixed often. In general: - As I said before the Indian cars of the time period you are looking at were not the best built..so age starts to show quite early on. - Maruti parts are significantly cheaper than most GOOD OEM parts and originial Japanese parts. However, the service life does tend to be shorter so over a period of time you will spend almost the same amount of money for the Indian cars by having to replace the same part a few more times (again..this depends on the car and the part). - Good OEM parts and original parts for Japanese cars can be quite expensive. Howeer, there are plenty of cheap Chinese knock-off parts that are dirt cheap. If you use such parts then the maintenance/repair costs for a Japanese car would be almost the same as that of an Indian car. However, using these parts is not recommended.
  28. There is a place in Pasyala right before the Pasyala junction in Colombo-Kandy Road. I have seen it while I was on the way from Colombo to Kandy. Never really been there though. So can not guarantee the availability.
