Honda Vti or Lxi

Hi Everyone,
I am looking for a second hand car that i can use for work and i have made my decision that i would want to buy a civic. I would want to know though whether the lxi consumes more gas than the vti? In terms of torque, i know the Vti has more horsepower pero konti lang ba ang difference.?

^_^:
since ur primary concern is fuel consumption then get the LXI

^_^:
On fuel consumption i'd get the LXi... from what i heard the the Vti consumes more fuel than the SiR in normal driving conditions.

^_^:
sa VTi ako

^_^:
Sir tanong lang:
Differene between Lxi, SIR, VTI RS in terms of engine displacement, tranny, options, others. Sorry, not familiar in civic's model in PH. Here kasi (UAE) ang Lxi (1.5, M/T or A/T pwr steering n no power option), EXI (1.5, M/t or A/T plus power option) and Vti (1.7, M/t or A/T plus full power incl. alloys, option pa rin sunroof)

Thanks. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but here's what I know,
Dito sa Pinas,
LXi - 1.5L SOHC, comes in M/T or A/T
VTi - 1.6L SOHC, comes in M/T or A/T
VTi RS - 1.6L SOHC comes in M/T only, I think.
SiR - 1.6L DOHC comes in M/T only
All, except LXi, have all-power features. Sa LXi yata di pa power side mirros, not sure also.
Paki korek na lang po.

^_^:
hi!
thanks sa mga replys niyo kasi i am having a hard time with the descision.
how many kilometers to a liter ang lxi and a vti...

^_^:
Which Civic are you talking about, the previous model or the current one? If you plan to get a VTi, it's better with a manual gearbox. I suggest not getting the current VTi automatic; not that much performance increase against an automatic LXi (if any).

Kung previous model from 1996 to 1999 (di ko kasi alam yung sa new models), get the LXi for fuel consumption. You will miss though the all power features na meron sa VTi like what Artpogi has mentioned.

i was thinking of buying a civic model 1999 -2002 yung
parang sir na shape....

^_^:
i've driven both the automatic lxi and vti 96 ek model civics. i took them to and from pampanga on several occasions na din - in fact, i own an A/T lxi 96.
fuel economy - from my estimates, both return nearly the same figures (around 7-8 city, slightly less sa highway @ 80kph average speed).
engine performance - hands down mas panalo yung vti model. umiiwan ako ng older 2.0 toyota coronas. at 3-4K RPM kakagat na yung vtec, parang magiiba ng konti ang tone ng engine.
pro in the end, u have to decide kung ano mas important sayo. power ba o economy? u can't have both, sa totoo lang. lxi returns slightly better economy. vti gives more power. whatever your decision, i further suggest u get the automatic models...halos ganun din naman ang konsumo, d ka pa pagod sa long drives.

parang sir na shape.... that's the EK models, EK and EG civics are very notorious for their shift-shocks that tends to get worse as the car age.
I heard that the current A/T civics (the ES) has solved those shift-shock problems. Don't know if it's true.

^_^:
that would be the 1999-2000 model, the EK (global) body. the 2001 onwards has the ES body.
if you really want to save in fuel go for the LXi, but the VTi doesn't really consume that much fuel if you don't engage the VTEC too often. my 96 still does 10km/liter on city driving. I run an average of 55km everyday and i consume about 1k pesos worth of velocity fuel every week. btw, my VTi is m/t.

hi der,
i am not familiar with honda cars ha.......are you saying meron siyang parang button or switch na nag aactivate ng vtec? kala ko kasi if yung car mo ay vtec it always runs under a vtec engine...

^_^:
thanks sa input guys... planning to get a civic back there in ph.

^_^:
ano ba ang price range ng lxi lets say 96', 97' to 2000. stock lang 60k mileage below.

antz There's NO button or switch to activate VTEC.

Hi Antz, from what I know under 3-4K RPM yung VTEC only operates on 12 valve mode.. so less consumption in gas. Pero if you rev it up past 3K RPM then the engine will shift to 16-valve operation... birit mode na siya. Kaya yung VTEC sinasabi na may 2 cam profile. Yung VTEC3 naman has 3 cam profiles but I don't know yung rev range para maactivate. Pacorrect nalang mga Honda pips.

^_^:
99 to early 01 yun na body papi.
if ako, i'd get the vti. same naman halos fuel consumption e.
i have both models (2002 nga lang). for me kasi s driving style din yan.
