GTR34 as not known for its luxury/comfort or seating position...
It was known for crazy performance which was surprising for a car which looked like a saloon and not designed like a low slung full fledged sports car.It was a favourite with the tuners and all the guys who didnt care about if "their legs were cramped" or "the seating was not luxirious". It could take on the sports cars which were more expensive etc and had a crazy AWD,twin turbos etc etc, it was performance enthusiast car at a certain price...
At the time when the first City was launched how many cars came close to the city in performance, handling and power to weight ratio? 16valve MPFI ? how many were making 100 BHP when the city came to India ? ..at that time there was only the cielo,astra,lancer,esteem...
If "legs being cramped" is a criteria for comparing a city..I would recommend the "Maruti Omni" ,it beats the city any day ..bcoz u can put a sofa in the back and go to sleep !! I would therefore call city the Indian GTR34...also consider the price etc.
It wouldnt be fair to compare the gtr34 to the Mclaren F1 GT or the Ferrari enzo right ? ..similarly u cant compare a City with the RS...
if price is not an issue..i'll compare a RS with a Bentley Arnage it's got lot of leg room and lots of performance
