    tingin ko talaga yang 1st gen vios ang pinakasulit. first gen yung amin at hindi kami binigyan ng sakit ng ulo.

To be fair, most other subcompacts (Accent, Sonic, Mirage G4, Rio, Almera) feel just as much a budget meal as the Vios.
    IMHO the City is not at all more upscale than the Vios in general. It just happens that the Vios offers an entry level model at a more attainable price. Never have i heard someone utter "Wow, City" either. And on looks, latest Vios is even better looking than the City for some people. So being a Honda doesnt make the City any better than Vios, even for someone who isnt a Toyota fan such as myself.

    Can we really compare banana1 to banana2? There are monkeys who love banana1, while some gays prefer banana2.
    Kidding aside, I don't mind about the perception of others about my ride. It's my ride, not theirs!

    1. Maraming taxi driver na balasubas sa daan at maraming taxi ang hindi maintained ng maayos. Implicit association by lesser minds.
    2. Penchant for many shallow pinoys to want to look sosyal.

    Philippine setting:

    totoo naman talaga na wala pang City na ginawang taxi, at Vios meron. City and Vios are competitors in in their category, so normal lang sa mga tao to compare them. And 1 argument is that taxi issue.
    Hindi natin control isip ng ibang tao, kung bumili ka ng Vios at sinabi s'yo na pang taxi, nasa s'yo na lang yan ano ang reaction mo.

    Yung kasamahan namin bumili ng Vios at kinakantiyawan ng ka officemates namin, sabi nga niya (owner) kaya daw black binili niya para hindi mapagkamalang taxi at baka parahin siya, lol. See, siya (owner) din mismo nasa isip niya yang taxi issue sa Vios.

    Noong ako na bumili ng kotse, I was about to get the Red Vios TRD, but when I saw the City 1.5E nagustuhan (binili) ko kahit mas mahal siya dahil mas gusto ko.

    Ako nga bro before getting my city GM back in july 2013, ang pinag pilian ko was the 3rd gen vios vs. the old aging city GM in the market. Yun Honda city GM pa rin kinuha ko kahit na may bagong labas na vios during that time. It is simply because yun ang gusto ko and not because of the notion that ang vios ay pang taxi.

    On the bright side, many chose the vios because it was precisely made into a taxi. . .
    There are more spare parts now and in the future.
    Many believe it is more durable.
    Many believe it is fuel efficient.

    And many more . . .
    Puede ka rin biglang jumingle sa tabi-tabi kasi mas understanding sila sa taxi driver. . . :-)
