Both Cielo and Matiz are MPFi. you can get a Cielo/Matiz but with high miles and will need some work.

I suggest you should go for Conti or Cielo or Van(Omni)
Recently, I was given this deal 65k for Cielo no work at all and with LPG kit.
Omni just for that driving pleasure, it feels so different while driving that car.

As a Contessa owner and lover, I say, buy a Conti only if you have time and patience. Remember it's a 1972 body with an early 80s engine. It's a car for people who love it. If you're used to a modern piece of machinery like the Honda City or something, you'll find the Conti troublesome. Electricals are the biggest problem. Rattles are more pronounced too.
Oldies need time... just ask Rudra / Psycho / GTO how much time they have spent on their babies. For chaps like us, there's no car that can give us the same pleasure as owning and driving our old cars. Those cars have a lot more character than any modern design.

The Omni is probably the easiest 4-wheeler to drive. If you do decide on an Omni, get the MPFI version as the points ignition on the older version is known to fail at times.
