the variable geometry turbocharger engine deliver power so smoothly… So sx4 diesel is a car to drive those who jst lv to rule the road… Bcs MENS R BACK.
sx4 is the best.
People are opting for Verna in large number and their is waiting period for 6 to 8 months on Verna. Even the sale of Etois has also gone up and we can see large number of on the roads. I thin both Verna and Etois has made made to the sedan class in the year 2011.
Rapid all the way.
Would vote for the Rapid. Its a real VFM in the C segment. Vento TDI would come next!
I like rapid!
Language in mexican … forgotto mention that
Cool awaiting for it.
not good than XUV. XUV will beat all these.
its price its asking for is too much of a premium its not even a proper offroader…rather opt for a proper SUV….and the XUV sales will keep zooming as there’s no potential competition in that price range.
awesome! honda’s legendary reliability teamed with a diesel engine…killer combination….
that’s gr8 news….
XUV is going to kick its costly ass!
If “current price 22.6 – 24.8 lakh” and “the CR-V could be priced 20-30% lower than the current price” statements are true then how can u say that “the price range of the upcoming CR-V could be between Rs. 22 lakh to Rs. 26 lakh”!
This one is the butt lifted not face lifted….
woow..ths is the one v r waitng 4…………..
there’s no need to put a diesel engine bcs if it got a diesel engine… I ll gona common amngst the peeps… Its unique.. Hats off to japanees…
its gr8 to hear that Honda finaly may bring Diesel engines in India may be 1st in Crv but I think Honda sld give an option of diesel eng in all there cars right from Brio, city, jazz, civic, accord and Crv.to improve the sales of there cars.petrol is so expensive dat mazz auto manufacturers r giving more disk on petrol vehciles to make the sale of…[Read more]
its damn gud….
Honda is still in his dream…
price is still issue…….. cant beat the Mahindra XUV-500…..
finally a diesel engine.
oh but wait!
anywhere close to 20 lakhs it will kill the competition.
It shud be something arnd 25 to 30..
Now thts a time to launch diesel car for honda other wise honda ‘ll out frm india market…WHT DO U SAY FREINDS…
no such diesel engines are to come…
exteriar has been improved than the earlier one and rare view is quite like volvo xc 60 that’s really good.
its gud, afterall tavera is the bread and butter of General Motors in India
a lil facelift and a new engine… GM had to do that afterall tavera is its bread and butter… And it has perfectly filled the gap left by Qualis…
he he heeeeeeeeeeeee cooollllllll.
xylo’s engine generates 112 bhp of power and 260 nm of torque please correct the figure.
AB ISKO HATAO,, KUCH NAYA LAAO.Competetion is tough mere bhai.
it is having engine of Sonalika Rhino.
This boxy shape has outlived it’s purpose…..need to be revamped…..
After borrowing some looks from Qualis, it now borrows the heart from Rhino! :/
Even the term “Outdated design” has become outdated now!
hoping GM would make some changes wid d interiors….. w8ng for new avatar tavera.
man/passenger is going to piss in 1st picture.
changes done very quickly.well appreciated
dam chevy dissappointed.. this one is out dated design and looks alike older version , but slight change is made front hood and bumper and grill en large….
need to be more stylish & agressive…….
XYLO IS THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY.
maza nahi aaya………….kuch naya lao………ye to tourist me hi chalega….
gud in terms of driving needs drastic change in body shape.
Better to go for a Premier RIO available at 4.94 Lakhs.
looks very much outdated now, even the optra looks outdated , change both cars.
wah purana bakwas.
Tavera is the most worst mpv its better to buy Innova a gr8 Mpv. Taveras suspension is the most worst 1..typical old desighn nothing new we hv found in this also interiors are dull..better go for innova, Xylo…
Yes its the Engine from Sonalika(you got it right from the tractor company).But Rhino did well only for its engine performance,so Tavera will bang again in the CAB market
not intersting.its just wastage of money investing in this car for a medium size family.
worst car in the world………
do not make any car ple..
engine is still underpowered, the vehicle doesn’t feel like from Chevrolet stable…. still the shape remain the bygone era one.
awesome advice dude..! very true.
only cosmetic changes in the froont grill n the head lamps will not do now any wonders for chevy……..GM should grow up now….it is INDIA >>>>where winners are chosen by there constant product updates n not by lazy AMERICAN weekend thaughts n deaaaalays in product renewals updates.
Guys, but you’d get 2 Taveras for the price of one of th two you are speaking about. Give that a thought too. Not every one would afford an Innova or an XUV 5oo.
MISSION L FROM SKODA IS COMING UP IN OCTOBER…. AND IT BRINGS LOTS OF HOPE N PROMISES WITH IT….. WOW
HONDA BRIO IS GOING TO FINISH THE PETROL HATCH MARKET…. THIS CAR IS THE BEST HATCH WITH PRICE TAG BELOW 5 LAC TILL DATE IN THE MARKET…..

but what anybody has to say about the fuel prices , they are rising like hell no car is bad its actually the after sales factor all of them which build the impression & Market reppot.
scoda…. what a sexy car…muahhhh.
Honda Badge under 5lacs………..attractive.
mahindra suv not gng to hit sales bcos it is overpriced for its brand name………skoda if it cums wit all features like rear a/c, cruise control, steering adjust audio, gud mileage wit gud look.it can beat all cars…….at dis price.
skoda sedan a good one.

I like the Mahindra XUV 500 SUV which is very good suvs.
the price is also affordable I think guarantee beats Fortuner……
I always follow these rules.. and the result is that I can get mileage upto 21KM/Ltr of Petrol some times…..on my HONDA CITY i-VTEC…..
I will try and follow as much as I can thanks dws auto for this.
over and above these tips, try and use car pool, it will save you some petrol cost…
WHEN U THOUGHT U KNEW EVERYTHING!
Thanks! I’m going to follow this & see how much my Fiesta gives me!
abhijeet first time hearing dat honda city is givin avg of 21km/ltr
tnxx dws for providing us with such good tips.
“smartly use the AC”.
Can anyone elaborate on this?
awesome tips…. m going to try it out……
it shud be 21km per 2 litres of petrol!
GREAT….I WILL PUT DOWN TO USE RIGHT AWAY?
well dnt purchase ant vehicle u will save a lot of money for your bright and better future…………as fuel prices r hikihing vehciles r nt affordable also cng/lpg prices may hike……vehicle maintance, parking charges, toll nakas, traffic, pollution……..lots of money u can save if u will not purchase any vehicles…..
Hrishi Acharya : I totally agree with you..
Sirji, mistake se space aagya CARPOOL !!!
I follow most of this, and I get around 18-20 for my ritz diesil in city..
yes good one!
so bye using this I can reduce my car petrol bill.
i will follow ji heeeeeee.
Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….
@ bicycle. Gud idea.
Abhi Jeet Yes… DEAR Abhi… Its100% True FACT!!!
I inform the Same Fact to My HONDA CITY Dealer…he also shocked….
Alsofrom My HONDA CITY , i got average of 19Km/Ltr for 750 Km of Run from PUNE to NAGPUR in HOT weather of MAY 2010.
But it can happen only if you
(1)put soft pressure on Accelerator.. pressurize the accelerator only…[Read more]
a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]
Carpool: if more than one persons daily travelling from same way than instead of using separate vehicle use one
interesting to read but very difficult to follow.
thanxs nice tips.
let me follow it……….
Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
Its 71 in Chennai.
Time to park the car in the garage & cycle to work.
Its Really irritating to see petrol being hiked by 3odd rupees every 3 months. By the end of 2012 it may even go upto 100 rupees where the most affected people will be the middle class who own hatch backs. As a result of this people will think twice before taking the key of their cars from the key hanger. For a car giving 12 kmpl, the average…[Read more]
Cycle option is the best option.
Atleast you people are still in the 60s!!!!!
My Alto K10 gives about 12-14 kmpl. So that it will automatically increase the cost about 3200 per year at lest for me.
It is 74.50 in Hyderabad.
74 odd in bangalore.
Petrol price hike: one more reason to seriously consider diesel cars!
I really don’t understand HOW-n-WHY is this being tolerated…. I mean
1. Look at the constant rise in prices &.
2. Why is there so much of a price diff.. I mean.. Delhi is Rs.66/ltr whereas Mumbai is Rs.71/lts & Hyderabad & bangalore is Rs.74 approx… I mean there’s a Rs.10/lts diff.
Isn’t this surprising where we say we are all one &…[Read more]
Much worse… 74 in Bangalore
I think already many petrol vehicles sell has clash and now again Rs 3.15/. increase in price of petrol from yest it is again a trouble in selling for all petrol vehicles.though now there is a huge demand for diesel vehicles but not all diesel vehicles are ready available and waiting period is there.again after few days govt will hike diesel price…[Read more]
Make the petrol Rs100 once for all. We can then dump our cars in garage and start using Metros and buses.
Diesel Punto YO!
its 74 in punjab. . . . But still. . . I luv to drive on petrol.
be ready to pay 100 bucks for 1 liter of petrol by 2012….why is there no regulator like trai to monitor selling price of fuel and other products….isn’t it hypocritical nature of govt. that they decontrol and then control indirectly and allow oil supplying cartel to decide selling price of fuel…bhaiya election karwa do nayi sarkar lek aao aur…[Read more]
sahi jawaab !!!!!
Once upon a time, cars (or whatever passed for cars) ran on steam! Once upon a time, cars ran on petrol! Once upon a time there were cars! Once upon a time…
don’t dare to point any question to this govt….ramdev jaisa haal kar denge……CNG lagva le…..aur chup ho ja…..
@[546382662:2048:Krishna Dhiman] stop being a follower rise to be counted
its 79.34 in pune now using bike is also expensive than diesel car.
tonga ,ghoragari, cycle,rickshaw, bullackcart ka zamana fir wapis aa raha hai, ab market mein honda aur volkswagen ke khachar bhi milenge, maruti aur tata ghode bhi bechenge, service ki koi tension nahin, bus hara chara arrange karna padega…………………..
The engine power is much too less compared to its capacity!
And, the cost is much too high too!
I like the facility & feacher.
wow finally bollero gets safty features like ABS EBD…. Coool man…. I like it… The tough new safty bollero….
engine power is too low……2600cc and producing only 63hp.
spc d ultimt frntr.
I love bolero.
mileage s nt included in the specification…..y? seating capacity……GD!
now bolero is also comes in category of a fully loaded car.
iss kee tyre orr bade hone chiyee thee.
Better than previous.Wish Congratz & good luck to entire team!
Aisa kuch nhi hai iss gaadi hai…ye likha hai
The top-end variant doesnâ€™t come with alloy wheels or safety features such as Airbags, ABS and EBD.
very very good absoluitly dashing send me deatails of this car.
it may also have frount arm rest and electronic adjusted orvm.
Awesomeee….. hope its worth the money.
and a more power engine of at least 120 hp.
Good looking with awesome…Preference….Much good looking interiors…Loving it..Mahindra is rocking day by day,….BUUUUUUUUUUUUT.
Worthless engine power…Baseless powered engine..with very little torque.
Why Mahindra is ignoring there product “AXE” indian version of hummer.
The best SUV in the market.
only thing missing now is 4×4 ABS otherwise great. thanks mahidra u have given air vents for the wind screen… good job
tz fr te mileage consious rural buyers…..tats y te low bhp rating…..tos lukn fr power
hs te scorpio…..
Just 63 bhp dats real crappy what a waste.
Sanju Vivek Think about the higher price for the rural buyers bro, that sucks.
I don’t know why all Mahindra vehicles don’t have anything great in its dashboard…
king of rural india gets a face lift…
Good Samaritan bt f u luk at oter options in tat price range……tz nt tat high….at lower side tz all eeco,venture wich r al flimsy vans…ten uve te sumo’s wich outdated a decade bck….closest credible option s te scorpio ex wich cost 7.45l wich s a full 1.4lakhs more….nd tat too s 75bhp engine on a heavy body….
Sanju Vivek I can’t accept the Bolero more than just a Jeep. The look says all. And, with the modification of the front grill, it looks like a F***ed Tank.
Good Samaritan nd tz jux 6000rs more tan te previous model…..a tiny increase….
Good Samaritan luks r personal ting bro…bolero s te largest selling SUV in india…..tat means many people r ok wit te luks…..
Sanju Vivek but, TATA Sumo has a great look (though it’s old enough). And, I don’t like the Scorpio too (an SUV without proper proportionate distribution of kerb weight and power).
Good Samaritan xactly bro…..luks vary wit every1…sme find sumo gud while sme find t very old nd boxy….i personally lyks te luk f grande very much,…much bttr tan bolero…bt tz let down by te spartan suspension(leaf type) nd primitive interios…..
Sanju Vivek I second you Friend, but in the case of Bolero….
The look kills the car (and the price and the power ratio also)…….
Good Samaritan – Mahindra is way more reliable than a Tata. Tata is Garbage
WELL I THINK I 20 IS THE 2ND LARGEST SELLING HATCH BACK AFTER SWIFT the strong point for its selling is its unique european desighn look, an option of petrol/diesel….automatic tramsmion option many more other things with lots of safety features and strongest service network with gr8 mileage…..so I 20 will continue to seel it may come in no.1…[Read more]
is there any advantage with extra 6th gear?
The uber cool……..
I guess this will boost the demand of i20. I was expecting the same thing would happened with i10 with diesel but they did it with i20.
yes,,, i have the six speed box….if they discontinue it my cars resale value will go up as compared to others…1.4asta crdi.
Now tough compition is going on bcoz of HONDA JAZZ is costing around 5.5 lac delhi ex showroom.
big mistake… ppl who understand cars know that the 6th gear is essential in a diesel car cos it makes highway cruising effortless at 1200-1500 rpm and minimum engine noise. i20 has suddenly become worse and Rs 8000 price cut is not enough to lure sm1 who is plannin to buy a swift. is stupid. i used to lik this car, now suddenly i hate it….. …[Read more]
before last couple of weeks I had buy a 6 speed i20……crdi……..
wer is i30!
hyundai i20 is bold for its (SSS) SAFETY, SPACIOUS, SIXTH GEAR.
hyundai i20 is bold for its (SSS) SAFETY, SPACIOUS, SIXTH GEAR
now its 8000, aftrward it ll b 80000…
no i 30.. its gonna b i35…
Hyundai vehicles are good but too costly to maintain. The spare parts are not available in the market and the service centre charges exorbitantly. After the free service regime….it rather makes you cry.
when its going to launch?
Just 8K seems too little to make an impact. While those who were planning to go for i20 will be happier, this puny discount will not be able to draw attention of potential customers who are considering some other diesel hatchback. Anyway, from the article it seems that the discount is not actually for pumping up sales.
what will be the difference we feel with 5 speed & 6 speed.. mileage + -
i20 5 speed is faster than 6 speed.5 speed is faster by 2 seconds (0-100) compared to 6 speed. In city driving we hardly use 6th gear.
It will give tough competiton to the Dzire,But all depends on pricing,especially in bangalore where the taxes and costs are high.
nice. get a newer car next year with better design and build.
I have been waiting for this car.
Aah, I am waiting, Already own the Diesel Altis (VERY HAPPY), should be a good car, don’t like the looks of the etios, but everything else should be fantastic.

I THINK FIAT COMPANY HAS LOST ITS CHARM…OTHERWISE FIAT LINEA IS A GUD CAR ..GUD LOOKS BIG N IT LOOKS QUITE CLASSY…I FEEL SAD THAT SALE RESPONSE IS LESS….
this car is not jus a car….its the car with power n feel of luxury…its like queen on the road…
FIAT please GET AWAY FROM TATA.create your own workshops and authorized service stations everwhere in India like maruti and hyundai did also update all your fiat vehicles which are avaible in india in all terms like engines, features and other things.keep the pricing prpoerly according to the competion make all spare parts available everwhere…[Read more]
Thanks DWS.. for paying attention to this topic…i bet it is a super car.. n my choice is correct.. just the after sales by the great TATA.. is a let-down.. but I have come across come maintenance bills online by owners..wherein after 44000kms of running there is a maintenance of 20k fr 3 services in all over 4-5 years.. which comes to Rs.0.40…[Read more]
Nothing really left to say after reading above but one thing is for sure that people of this country has great emotional attachments with cars like fiat and maruti 800 and it actually put a smile on their faces when they see these cars in their garage…. but as mentioned the after sales n spare parts lunacy, we are definately forced to abandon…[Read more]
Fiat has always done something new and this tym…they are going to open thr Fiat Cafee in they will sell, book thr cars with a hot italian coffee..as fiat is also going to part away frm tata and will open thr own service stations…which will boost thr sales also…im happy by booking Linea1.3mjd cuz…luks, built, features no one even stands…[Read more]
linea is a great car, actually its a feeling of proud for owners.
I have a soft corner for Fiat since it birth in India in the role of Premier Padmini. I too have it right now. Fiat have always delivery what we call quality uniqueness and power.
This reason why I am saying is that today Swift Diesel, All TATA car are equipped with FIAT engine.
If FIAT improve on its service network and its spare parts cost…[Read more]
You will notice that if u go to a TATA-FIAT dealership the sales team directs you directly towards the manza and the vista when u point to the the linea and punto they say “sir yeh bhi achhee hein”.
now the problem is something else.
Bro apna apna hota h aur adopted adopted he hota h. Yahi to fark h.
I totally agree. Italian supermodel !!!!!!!
thnx rajiv…u knw d value of gem…..

Nothing will change till a new management team comes in.Own a Linea for 2 years now, its a fantastic car. Even service by VST Chennai is superb, never had an issue.Lousy marketing team and distribution set up is killing a great product.
Thanks to all u guys… I have finally purchased the Linea Emotion Diesel MJD and boy I m veryy happy… this car is a beast.. specialy after the turbo kicks in.. now I m doubly sure that this car has been misrepresented in many places and forums.. this is a classssy machine… cheers guys.. and thanks once again…
