dont like the new fiesta , it looks awkward and is overpriced , verna could kick its ass any day … well honda is another story if only they had launched diesel engines well then there would be no fluidic dZire linea or any other C1 segmenl sedans on the road now
No one pays premium for a ford, good move by ford to offer discounts. Hope they price ecosport like figo.
among d cars u hv specified, go for Skoda Rapid(around 10lakhs). Its wont hv features compared to verna but its driving dynamic &handling is gr8 compared to verna which fills scary on highways(so wt d use of dt xtra power).
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.
buddy, close ur eyes &go with Honda City. Best Petrol Sedan of its class. Or else also look out for Fiat Linea. Looks cool, ride &handling is gr8 &right nw gr8 offers too goin on.
Honda City CE in Tafeta White and get Black Konig Theory Alloys m/ Done
Honda city Corporate edition is much better than fluidic verna,City feels better in terms of comfort on all 5 seats,better refined petrol engine but only lacks features
I agree with all the comments above, with the price cuts now city is the best, also if u wanna keep it for long time,see if u can buy it within this year as dealers are giving discounts this time of the year as ppl dnt prefer buying cars at end of year,cos waiting a month gives the tag of a next year model, hence bettr resale value in future.
Thanks for the advices guys.. I think i will go for honda city then.
What about the black colour? at least the ORVMs will match the colour body
@rahul i will also buy it in 2012
@ Farhan: Black looks good on City, so does white, and that maroonish colour, dnt know its exact name, the red wine kinda colour.. And I guess it wont make much diffrence when you buy, cos I just saw ad in todays paper that Skoda is giving 70,00 off on Laura till 31st dec. Considering a similar or even 50k discount on City, I guess that much would…[Read more]
@rahul i guess the colour name is Red pearl.. yes but i don’t think city will be having any discount offer for the new year as its facelift has been recently launched..
As city CE doesn’t have body coloured ORVMs and door handles, so i guess black will suit the CE city.
@ Farhan: You are right, honda may not be willing to give another discount when the prices have just been cut.. And yes, black looks best on City, it makes it look a segment higher in my opinion, especially in night.
Honda City is the best option
If its features that you are looking for the Verna is packed to the tee but the Honda City still scores in terms of ride and handling. You may also consider the Fiat Linea, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid etc. However since you are looking for a petrol sedan the you can’t really go wrong with any of these cars!
Bro do u need any explaination or clarification fr a german VW car?
vw jetta hmmm but i dont like jetta it looks similar to vento x(
sikander any idea abt cruze?
Cruze is the best sedan when compared to Altis if you drive and altis is best for chauffeur driven because it has loads of space at rear seat than Cruze.Skoda Laura cannot touch cruze
buddy, a simple answer. If u love driving most then Skoda Laura is ur choice. Its rides well handles gr8 with gr8 performance too compared to Cruze. Only u ve 2bare with its maintenance issues(costly). Or else Cruze is also a gud option.
laura features r too less in compare to cruze ihave to pay 17 lacks to get those feature in laura :/
well, lastly its ur choice to buy. I too was confused b/w those two cars. But finaly gone with Laura.
which on u got k and l??? or rS?
@arindam: mine is TDI engine ELEGANCE AUTO.
cruze if you’re driving yourself if chauffeur driven then altis…skip the laura..
Cruze is definitely Value for money. I have mine for the last 2 years and the regular maintenance is the only thing I have done till now. All other times, it is just fill it up and let it burn the roads…
Do not buy skoda its a pain and too expensive to maintain.
Do not buy skoda its a pain and too expensive to maintain.
Chose to Cruze,,, company certainly picked the correct line,,, it has the feel if you are a drive freak… Laura is just car… if looking on options, you can check Volkswagen !
Cruze is nice car in the class.. and maintenence is moderate and performance is good, Skoda laura is also good car to compare with. But cruze is somewhere a strong car as it has got nice exterior feels like a muscle car..and no doubt its a diesel rocket..and i tell u it is true.
Planning to buy with a loan or cash down? It will change depending on the loan amount.
Looks like it will make sense to go for diesel. Here is what to do: Go to http://www.cartoq.com/diesel-decider/ put in the price and figures and car model planned, and running distance etc. You will get an initial answer. Then, click on Advanced Diesel Decider and here, you can change petrol and fuel price, loan amount, interest rate etc and get a…[Read more]
as of ur monthly running is around 650-700km i think u shud go for petrol engine cars. Coz 1st of all u vl save around 1-1.5lakhs b4 buying &in A.S.S.(maintenance) too.
Wt about resale value??
Petrol.. With that low running, you will never get the extra one lac justified, even after 6/7 years i guess…
annual running of 8000km then petrol…also can u mention which cars you’re looking for
Swift petrol !!
fabia – maintainance cost is high.
polo – even fr a single dent or scratch thy ll ask u more than 2k, maintainance high
i20 – under powerd petrol car wit korean technology, but yet awesome exteriors n interiors
punto – poor a.s.s
better go for maruti, u can trust n buy it…
New Swift Petrol is a good buy anyday.
Yea the swift petrol is good, but I am hearing good reviews about polo and micra
Fiat punto good buy if there is service in your city…..
m driving a punto emotion pk 90 bhp.. one of the best handling car available in india. super suspension n ride quality very stable even above 140 km. But yes you hv to adjust with the service and mileage as compared to maruti. Though i hv nt faced ny issues with a.s.s yet … wud suggest u to take a test drive of ur listed vehicles
Why not Honda Jazz X? If u can wait till Feb/Mar then the Jazz is the best 4m the above choice. Worth waiting. Else 2nd option is Swift Zxi, which also has a waiting period.
if ur yearly mileage wud b around 12000km &keep ur car for atleast 5yrs, dn i wud recommend u to go with a diesel engine car. If not den go with Swift. Its performance &fuel economy both r gud with handling &best A.S.S. &2nd opt. is Punto. U can bare with its A.S.S.
What are your main concerns or priorities?
Well if you are looking for an comfortable hatch for all 4-5 occupants and need extra features for the money you plonk Tata Vista is very good to purchase.
But Tata lags behind A.S.S when compared to Maruti,but truly VFM.Mileage would be around 18-20kmpl.
And if you want a good driving experience and sporty hatch where you can omit good space…[Read more]
as a employee of maruti i ll suggest u to buy ritz. its more aweomw than swift…
a simple answer, if u love driving with performance &gud handling dn swift is ur choice. &if u want a comfortable(for 5 people) with gr8 ride quality &lots of feature for ur bucks dn Vista is car for u.
b/w d two cars u ve specified..its d Swift dt has edge over Punto’s 90hp in terms of performance, fuel efficieny with best a.s.s. &resale value.
Punto is a rigid &stable highway car. It shames other cars with its gr8 ride n handling package even swift. Test drive both cars.
Punto 90HP is good if you like to play around than swift,If you are not worried too much on Fiat’s A.S.S and need the car without waiting for monthsm Punto is the best option you will get.
@yogeshn vishwas: i took TD of both the cars both are great at their places but i loved punto very much…but worried about its A.S.S n offcourse resale value…
Punto is a great lovable car.. Best performance and handling.. coolest looks.. but A.S.S. of swift and resale value is a lil better.. though everywhwere A.S.S is not bad and TATA’s are really improving on it..
punto any day is much better, mr vishal fyi fiat cars have won the very prestigious european car of the year award 12 times in the past. how many times has suzuki won??????
punto 90 hp
@vishal.. not in auto engineering.
@suraj.. its so simple,Get the car u love.. Period.
Service is decent enough, ask only to fiat owners in ur area. Separate fiat network and new launches will help in resale. Just wait for jan 3rd upgrades.
i own a punto 90hp better go for punto its best car i have ever drivn swift is bit kind gets shaky when on above 120′s but punto is the best rigid one in all the cars available in market
wtevr u prefer both the engines r developed by fiat. . . Both have 1.3 lit engine . . But in 90 hp they r generating from same engine thats producing 75 bhp at its good rpm rating. . So durability of 90 hp engine is less. If u wana go fr simple multijet emotion pack than ok. . Nd sm1 talking about suzuki repo. . .no 1 can match up with japnees quality.
i ll prefer u with swift. . . Punto is also gud . . But emotion pack having same engine lyk swift. . . .
if don’t have any service problem than simply go for punto 90 hp otherwise swift zdi. fiat is also opening its own service centre and dealership
Punto 2012 with better road clearance,music player & upholstery is a good attempt 2 close the gap
plz sayme wat is this A.S.S problem as i am thinking to buy a new punto plz
tata is providing service for fiat. that’s the problem.many people for tata service center say that” jo ek baar aata hai, wo baar baar aata hai”
Maruti Suzuki Swift zdi (2012)-:good turning radius so good for city zip drive.
new swift reduce their 30k.g. weight so, mileage is 22.1k.m./l so this is very economically car.
maruti service center is available all india major & minor city even village also.easy to resell.
New PUNTO 2012-:Bad turning radius so difficult to city zip rid.
New PUNTO…[Read more]
hey watz this…? u r comparing punto 90HP with swift? swift cant match even punto 76HP engine. compare 90HP with 120 or polo. punto 90HP is the most powerful hatchback in INDIA. have u ever seen the build quality of swift? a hand punch can cause severe dents on the swift. A slight negligence in driving can result in complete car crash. it has…[Read more]
Let me try and put it in short. The Swift is more peppy and enjoys lighter steering and smaller turning radius in the city. It also enjoys Maruti’s excellent service network and therefore has very good resale values. The Punto 90HP is more of a highway car and may feel sluggish in the first two gears as well as slightly less zippy in the city due…[Read more]
Linea with lil discounts on diesel is an attractive option, rides well too.. verna is too much feature loaded and is an excellent vfm but loses some ground on ride quality.. sunny is for calm drivers, it handles well but lacks sporty feel, and about rapid, its better to shell out 25000 more for vento.. If I’ve to choose one, I’d lock between verna…[Read more]
Ride quality is actually quite subjective – it is different in the city and the highway, on good roads and bad roads, at moderate speeds and when driving fast… on straight roads or on mountain curves. Where exactly will you be driving the car? Verna is quite plush and nice on uneven roads at slow speeds, not so good at curves… Rapid is stiffer…[Read more]
@babychen: wo wo wo!
Gaurav must b confused dt wer shud he drive d car to check d ride quality..
@gaurav: buddy, for ride + handling quality &for value for ur money go with Linea. Its gud compared to others. But it has low ground clearance.
Rapid is also a gud choice. Only it vl b expensive to maintain.
Verna is a feature rich car. But its also a bit low grounded &its handling is not so gud as 1 expect.
Test drive al d cars.
@ Pranay Jiraiya, babychen, yogesh.,.,., thank you guys for your advice.,.,.,, thanks a lot.,.,.,
i have a buget of about 8 lacs .,,.,.,., nd i need low maintainance .,.,.,., wich one do you suggest?
or lower maintenance Verna holds good
For ride quality, go 4 skoda or fiat. New linea coming on 3rd jan will get better interiors and ground clearence. Fiat service cost is as low as maruti but quality depends on dealer. Same with skoda but costs are higher.
gaurav, i think u shud go with sx4 diesel. Its ride is gud &so has d fuel effeciency wit low cost maintenance.
all above the best go and test drive new global fiesta ita all above and better in every aspect except pickup
All of the above has got something or the other which make each of them good, or better than the other, Skoda and Hyundai got nice cabin and dashboard and Fiat and Nissan has got nice space in the Cabin. Driving and handling is better in Nissan and Skoda and shifting also, Hyundai has got nice looks and style than the others. Fiat has got nice…[Read more]
any takers for Nissan Sunny Diesel!
Verito is a good vehicle if you can consume its styling propositions,it has spacious interiors,decent engine,but poor in ergonomics,you can try getting Manza at the same price,it has better packages and good engine.
but i dont like tata cars ,,,
Okay then how about Ford Fiesta Classic? its a good option,else you have to take Dzire
ford fiesta classic is high then this car and swift dzire is ok ,,,
verito is really a gud car. Its spacious, comfortable, its ride quality is gud, &fuel efficient (15+ to 18+kmpl) too with mahindra’s a.s.s. Go with it.
If you can wait for 6 months then Dzire is a best option.As it has waiting period
