What was the OTR( On the road Price) when you purchased it? Currently the car is priced at 6.36 to 7.06 (ex-showroom). Is there any sort of paint work that has been done or needs to be done? Still if you think its well maintained and wont give any issue to the buyer may be you can quote a price tag of around 4 to 5 lakhs.

The ZDi is definitely better – it has safety features such as 2 airbags, and a better music system. It also has rear defogger and wiper and alloys. But if that’s not so important to you, you can pick up the VDi, as it has ABS in it. The rest you can customize as you like.
If the budget permits, its always advisable to go for the ZDi variant just for the 2 airbags, every other additional feature be damned.
always go for the one with airbags and ideally ABS too if you can afford it. So ZDi in this case!
Most important 10 months waiting period for ZDI . If you can wait then..
How much running do you do? An LPG kit will give you about the same mileage or slightly more – about 16-17 km per litre of LPG. Is it worth the conversion cost of Rs. 35,000 or so? Calculate and see depending on the number of kilometers you drive a month and whether you’ll make up this investment soon enough.
Approximately my car gives me mileage of 15 km/pl. But sometimes on highways it also ranged till 18km/pl.
That is indeed very good mileage for a Dzire VXi. Just calculate the costs of buying a new diesel car, and the difference between the resale value you’ll get on the Dzire VXi. With your kind of running, it will take at least 4.5 years to make up the Rs. 1 lakh price difference between the two (and you can buy a lot of petrol for that money).…[Read more]
Nitin, I couldn’t find any reason for you shifting to a diesel from your present Dzire VXI petrol. You are exactly driving at 409.75 Km per month and for this low running petrol is the correct decision.
Go with your present petrol engine….. diesel not beneficial to you.
Stick to petrol. not much sense in selling off an older Swift for a newer diesel, esp with that kind of running. it’ll take you ages to recover the extra money you paid for diesel and then start saving!
Go with your present petrol engine…
with <=400km a month petrol car is the car for you since diesel engine will cost you around 1lakh(approx) more than petrol and based on your running the cost of ownership will get recovered after a very long time.
go with petrol l
At Rs. 9 lakh and 15 kmpl, only one MPV fits in – the Maruti Ertiga. But it won’t carry seven people comfortably. It’s essentially a 5-seater with 2 extra seats when needed, but it will be tough to do a long trip in it with seven on board, as you won’t have luggage space. The Xylo is nice and fits in your budget. The downside to the Xylo is the…[Read more]
With flexible budget Toyota Innova would be a great deal, if fixed, Maruti Ertiga ticks both the column of price and mileage. Also, MNM has done a good job with the new xylo, its better than the previous one in looking as well as in features.
I will pick your remaining option, Tata Safari Dicor. Now, The Safari has been around for ages. I believe it was launched in 1998. That is some 14 years. The SUV is seriously much improved, and practically a well-sorted vehicle now. It fits in your budget. It is extremely spacious. It has enough luggage space. Tata service centers are so used to…[Read more]
If you don’t really want an SUV, then look at the Xylo or the Innova, depending upon the budget. The Xylo is, perhaps, the only MUV that can accomodate seven full size adults besides the Mercedes R-Class. Even the Innova is a bit of a pain in the last row for me (I am 5′-6″ and slim). Every other MUV has a compromised last row in some way or the…[Read more]
Oops – did not clarify earlier. You can fit an Innova seat in the Safari without much effort for the third row. Someone I know is doing it right now – said he enquired and found it an easy job.
sumo grande is also a good option if interiors can be overlooked
