Linea is best option for driving experience and better suspension setup than verna only drawback is the Service backup and lower headroom in the rear seat
1.4 fluidic is just a entry level no features … for driving pleasure go for linea as fluidic only preforms good in a straight open road and has a rather poor(soft) suspension set
as of ur requirements i wud suggest u to go with Fiat Linea.
Its best in Ride &Handling package. Only drawback is that it has low ground clearance.
hmm let fiat open their individual sale service centers . . . They ll make atleast 20 percent market. . . .
b/w the duo u must go with fiat linea multijet. A gr8 car. &if u r confuse regarding its A.S.S. U dont hv to visit it often coz its service due is approx. 15000km. So its gud to go with.
go for linea! its an awesome car with both interms of look, performance nd style…….:)don’t wait…just go for FIAT LINEA:)
close your eyes and and pick Fiat Linea Diesel….the best sedan in mid range…Looks Built engine handling…and features….u wont find any car better then this….sunny and Linea no compare men….pick Linea…
Go for linea mahn! Its an awsome italian beauty…n fabolous fiat’s italian technology!
ya correct………only linea..
Linea can be said the best looking car with the best engine. No wonder Most Indian counterparts use the same 1.3 Multijet diesel engine from FIAT.
y don’t u consider vento…chk out rapid too.
Better go for LINEA..great driving comfort.
beat car is Linea in terms of desighn, quality, features etc…..i wld like to suggest u Fiat Linea the superb car….sunny is also a good car with large boot space and its a spacious car but no way…. Linea is the best…….
Choice also vento gud car wth a best engine.
man…jus go for Linea..nothing is better thn this beast…well first…who has written thz article…boss…Linea is of 93bhp not 86…i bought this 4months bck..after testing Fludic, Fiesta, Vento…and decided to gor for.
linea cuz in terms of drivebility, Handling, Build nothing comes evn close to Fiat…frm vry first thud of closing doors…[Read more]
Seems to be good car and i will go for a test drive tomorrow then i will comment
NEVER EXPECTED THIS SHITTY CAR FROM SKODA BRAND…..HATTTTTTTTTTTTTE
it was better if they plonked the new engine with some minor design tweaks on the skoda octavia
vento still even better. . . .
superb ni rapid :p
Skoda has to improve his image regarding service network in order to beat VW although the car is good value for money.
I think Vento looks quite better den Rapid…skoda had nothing done anything new same chassis, platform, engine, features, side looks…….only the difference is from frt they hv kept a Fabia desighn and Vw badget has been replaced by Skoda…..also 25000/. price is lesser and finaly u hv options of 8 variants….but still notto forget Skodas…[Read more]
W8d 4a long tym.
rapid is not a car , it’s an INSULT to potential mid segment car buyers , what was skoda thinking at NOT including music system/climate control /electric OVRM in the mid segment when most of it’s league offer that already , REALLY A SHAME!
Looks good, like to try and have a feel of it.
Its very tough to sell this car.. It should had to hav music system atleast in the Ambition pack.. And instaed of going to Elagance pack one will go for Honda city or Fluidic Verna.. N also it lacks with other devices such as sreering mounted buttons, aux-in, etc..
Iam sorry another flop after Fabia ; 1st impression lasts long.
skoda awesome gives a royal feel and volkswagen gives sporty feel…. I prefer shhhkoda….
both car are being made under same production unit at Chakan, near Pune… both r same companies only difference dat make here is SKODA & VW… hard to compare… it’s all on your choice… not your wish… same may like skoda on d othr hand some Vw so ultimate think is v’ll be getting same Engine, technology, trust with 2 differnt model…[Read more]
mixed breed……. nothing new…..they have launched this just for the sake of launching a car in this segment……
no diesel automatic
No steering mounted controls in any of the models..That’s a big flop..Wake up Skoda.
it looks same as superb.
i would go for SX4 Diesel.
it looks better than vento……….
Skoda..Is a taxi admit it…and Moreover a costly one….and more to it’s Disgrace…it is burden with sales network, after-sales market and also with its parts and service network…is worse then anything…simply a burden…instead of giving new car’s I would like to say to the company representative’s to decrease the fee’s to open up a new…[Read more]
Rapid is better than vento….:D
what about service cost.
finally skoda too in the battle field.. survival of the fittest
Skoda spoiled the front end looks by taking the Fabia front end!
Skoda really has a good image with regard to its quality in the car, but not it its service.
I’m pravin bhivgade in bhandara.
awesome car& even the budget.
i wish i could have both . .
Shell out some money…Go for Hyundai Verna CRDI 1.4 is for 9.20L on road…1.6 is for 10.20L.
hi, I was in the same dilema.. but I have finally booked the Linea MJD Emotion coss :
1. First look and u have an obvious winner.
2. FIAT has announced it’s split with TATA which should take effect in a year or two.(I was also worried abt the same but then the announcement changed my thought.)
3. U test drive the car and the thrill is in the…[Read more]
To add to the backseat feature list, Linea offers an a/c vent for the backseat passengers which is missing in SX4! Further Maruti vehicles may prove cheaper to own but they are astoundingly light weighted which adds to the fuel efficiency but compromises on quality! Linea is one excellent car, meant for the relaxed drivers. You can actually cover…[Read more]
sx4 nytime. best after sales service alot more ground clearence for indian roads u will need it surely more comfort bettr mileage n pik up as its lighter n bettr tuned den linea bettr re sale value wat esle u want.
I have a top end Linea.
It’s a great car for the enthusiast. It’s a heavy car and has the best steering and suspension in this class, hence great to drive. Also, I feel, it’s the best looking sedan, a mid size Maserati, in fact. It is a little low on ground clearance and can get hit from below if you are careless, but nonetheless, they have…[Read more]
I own a top end linea emotion pack.
and for the last two years it still the best looking car.
i bought for driving pleasure and trust me when I say this its one of the best drives out there.
its a little low for my taste hence the need to be careful on potholes and speed breakers.
otherwise it has been one of my best buys.
regarding the SX4 D.…[Read more]
Shail I guess u were interested in etios diesel. Wanted to know d feedback of d same?
well I will suggest u Fiat Linea if u reay want to njoy and cruise the car on highways sexy italian looks better qulaity compare to sx4, gr8 engine, huge boot space, comes with loaded features and wht sld I say its a superb sexy car just go drive and I will sure u will go foe Linea……..A.S.S and resale value is only the issue….Sx4 has some…[Read more]
I checked the verna and vento too, verna is too dull, even though the interior finish is good and has loads of equipment. Vento has very little equipment, is just average in terms of handling.
Go for Linea MJD..The mileage might be low compared to Sx4 but the built quality, road grip, comfort is awesome…initial pick up is a bit less but doesn’t matter unless you are race driver(practically it does bother you much).FIAT is coming with 20 new dealers shortly of their own in major cities.so don’t worry about its service.The VGT…[Read more]
men are back SX4.
Vento Diesel handling is great buddy, try to drive @ high speed and then u know difference between others and German Technology. Gadgets can be upgraded but you can’t upgrade refinement and Engine Technology…
SX4 I feel as I had a Linea Diesel Emotion PK, ws not very convinced with the car coz of bad badd pik up, u had to down shift frm 4th to 3rd to 2nd sm times on climbing slopes. Not a car who loves to zooom. Its lik a old mans car, noisy, bad gear shifting experience and sluggish. Plus points: extremly stable, comfortable, whould grip like pure…[Read more]
SX4 for Macho MenFeline Linea for beautiful Women!
if u live at a place wid gud roads then linea is a gud buy bt there hv been problems with it. Linea is seriously loaded bt sx4 is the safest buy
go for linea.
@[698905829:2048:Rohit Sudan] I was eagerly waiting for Etios Diesel and it disappointed me like anything, Paying so much for a sedan that sounds like Mahindra Classic Jeep/Tractor…doesn’t seems to be a good choice. I would prefer to pay a little more and get Fiesta or Verna. Vento is a good choice though it is very flat design and basic…[Read more]
Ashish Dhingra agree wid u totally, the handling is best in class …. my frnd has polo top end version…i hv drove it quite a lot ….and unless u own a car like vento or polo or ne other car of the same standards u’ll never know the refinement it offers !!
if you drive within the radius of a metro area, go for the linea as it is the better car, in looks and build quality. if you drive across the country, as I do, you have to buy a maruti as its service reach and quality is the best.
Every time if someone comparing any car with Maruti Suzuki people started to talk about ASS. “Arrey bhai Gadi ko kharid ke lao ge to kya sidha usko service station me gused doge.” So dont argue on stupid points. I own 2012 Linea MJD Emotion means to end version. first its not under power because I have drove it to 180 with new engine not fully…[Read more]
good 1, even i’m confused between the two.i20 has a 90 bhp engine, where as swift has a sporty setup! but im buying the swift!
wat u want a sedan or a hatchback ………thats matter …….both the cars were awsm…..
Swift Dzire, more practical as a sedan, with a large boot and the trust of a maruti. i20 is also good. But maruti scores in terms of after sales service and low maintenance. And in a country like India a sedan commands more respect. I would go in for swift if I had been in your situation.
plus consider resale value of maruti
Running is too low to buy a diesel car. My suggestion would be to stick to a petrol engine. Given your budget (keeping in mind the fuel economy, space and features offered), I’d say that you go in for the Honda Jazz. Its new, boasts of a good 1.2l engine (89ps) which loves to rev! Of course its a Honda so what you get is sheer quality and…[Read more]
i20 petrol is not a great car. The steering wheel wobbles at 100+ speeds where dzire scores. And for your running petrol will be the best option. So go in for dzire ZXI.
Ultimate comfort, extremely smooth engine, good ride and handling and the new jazz is loaded with features. Even the pricing is as competitive as any other hatch(thanks to localization of parts). Jazz is also a good option
you should buy i20.
Wait for some days for the launch of the new swift Dzire…Its more practical to go for it.
go for i20…it is realy…best in class….
i20 much better then swift dzire.
Buy a 105ps Polo(petrol) n enjoy the driving pleasure with good economy too.
I wld suggets you I 20 its the best car with quality material and like maruti it is also having a good network of services…compare to maruti quality of hyundai is good….hyundai is 2nd largest seller in India….Good looks and premiun hatchback.go for it………dzire is very common not a bad car if u want more boot space go for dzire..or else…[Read more]
with eyes closed,,, go for i20 deisel or even you can go for petrol variant of i20…i am suggesting petrol coz urrunning per month is too low…i20 is the best buy in it’s hatchback segment..
bro in today’s market hyundai and maruti are equaly standing..but in few areas maruti scores…but hyundai scores for its best acclaimed deisel engines compared to maruti..coz maruti cannot offer more power and mileage than there petrol variants..
imo,swift z a better option bro.
baki its ur pov
bro hyundai has got the world’s best deisel engine in each of it’s segment..if you don’t know,,i tell you the technology they have got in deisel engines is known as CRDI which is adopted frm merc deisel engines knw as CRDE…so hyundai deisel engines are much more refined than maruti…
@[1099677915:2048:Aditya Pal] bro,,the car comparo taken here is not swift and i20,it is swift dzire…read it carefully..
arey haan yaar wahi.
m talkin abt dat only.
baki different people have different criterias for comparin da two cars.
imo, ‘swift dezire vdi’ is a better option
@[1099677915:2048:Aditya Pal] na..for me,,,i20 deisel..unbeatable car in it’s segment…with the deisel engine giving hving the most power in it than any other hatchback..it is even powerful than dzire vdi
and claims the same mileage as dzire…
Ab ye debate clg mein milke karenge!
too lazy to type here bhai
both are good cars but you go for i20 Magna Diesel.
No need to think. If your monthly average usage is around 800KM why think twice – go for Honda JAAZ! It is a classic HB for years of trouble free drive! Safe driving!
anytym i20 magna.
jazz is sexy n great carn good features but under powered engine:( wait for new cars two more months:)
my opinion is the best car between them is Swift Dzire VDi….:)
Maruti does not have a diesel engine. the engine they use is fiat’s Multijet which is practically used in every car(Indica vista, indigo manza, Fiat linea, fiat punto, dzire, swift, sx4, ritz). the engine is reliable, smooth, fuel efficient and trusted for a long life. The engine is peppy too.
Accepted that it was the best when it came up with the Accent CRDi and the Verna Diesel!
But where is the performance now? You may do a stint on highway with the 6 speed box but it hardly has the grunt for some spirited driving. Coupled to that the pathetic handling in relation to swift makes it a total no for me atleast! And how do…[Read more]
Madhupam Bansal madhupan bansal….bro i own i20 deisel..and it gives me 16 kmpl in city without ac..with ac it gives me 14 kmpl…so the car with the power of 90 bhp deisel engine,the mileage to that power in hatch is not bad..and in the highway,it touches arnd 21 kmpl..so according to me,mileage factor is gud…it also depends on the person…[Read more]
agreed..but i think his major concern out here is economy..so a diesel returning 14 might put him in a tacky situation..
easy answer..the car u choose is simply Dzire..no more confusion..
I think Swift Dzire will be a better option but the problem is waiting period which is more than 3.5 months and the second option is i20 no doubt perfect car but no mileage why don’t u consider Tata Manza try it out very good option whether mileage or size what ever try it out if you like it…
Now there are so many options in hatchback and saloon in both petrol and diesel options. It will depend upon what is the budget, between 4 – 5 (saloon) ritz is best option in petrol/diesel in terms of performance. 5-6 lacs leads by fabia which is real performance car. Saloon segment is lighten up by etios and sunny
Both are good cars… if someone wants comfort for rear passengers and also boot space.
then Dzire is the best choice…Should go for diesal becoz petrol price are on hike…and you never know actually how much you will drive the car once you own
The new Dzire Compact Sedan is expected in February….Hang on.
Guys, what about mini Xylo.
lots of stuff in store for all range of buyers, right from Green concept to butch SUV, great going M&M!
Great….Keep developing india.
Good stuff! If only they could make a better looking Verito with better powered engines! :/
Testing W201 z gng on n can be seen covered running on our roads…
Sounds ok but what would be the reliability as customers going to compare it with Toyota:that is important.
ALL UPCOMING MODELS OF MAHINDRA ARE IN LOW COASTING N BEST FEATURES TO COMPETE ALL MODELS IN THAT CATAGERY.
FRM THERE ONWARDS THE REAL COMPETITION WIL BEGAN..
W201 is a hit for sure.
D W201 is too aggressive n bulky tooo.. like mahindra from now
mahindra hats off 4 u….lol.
WHY W201 WILL BE A HIT…THERE IS FORCE 1 ALSO …BOTH SUV’S WILL COMPETE….WINNER FORCE1 …
sir kharidna hai kaya
I want w201fix launched date.
my favrite car virtigo….hmmmmmmm.
Mahindra SUV launch will definitely govern the market.
