you can go with another option, that is with a buzzer which can be fitted on top of the existing rear view mirror which looks pretty neat.
No, you can choose a system which can either integrate the video to your audio system screen or to a stand alone screen or a parking sensor system without a camera and a stand alone display etc. There is a very wide variety of parking sensors from which you may choose the one that fits your requirements the best.
I think.the Rapid is the quickest among all
even if rapid & vento shares d same underpinnings & engine, skoda has tuned it in a better way. rapid offers excellent drivability n driving dynamics… & if u need grt level f comforts,features,perfrmance, grt looks n A.S.S, verna fluidic is the best choice to go for….
What’s the top speed of Verna and what’s about the suspension handling issue with it???
Verna may go upto 175kmph*
The suspension of verna is not best in class…so while u are in full speed…the hard suspension will be a problem specially for the rear passengers…and due to its low seat height..it will be a little of problem..
And the Light steering is not suitable for enthusiasts going above 130kmph because the light steering…[Read more]
the Verna idoes 191.8 km/h and the Vento does 183.6 km/h. As for the 0-100 km/h sprint, the Verna takes just 10.88 seconds to achieve this whereas the Vento takes 11.94 seconds to do the same. Since Rapid and vento are 2 different names for the same car, there are no changes in these figures for both cars. Verna has got a soft suspension and light…[Read more]
no disrespect to verna owners.but we have a joint family and we own two fluidic verna .without even test drive we booked it.our’s were the first in town.verna’s suspension+boat like handling+low rear seat the performance goes for a toss in air.morover in long travellings(read more than half an hour) rear benchers start feeling uncomfortable and…[Read more]
What about city in this league (never mind a petrol)
City-The Best Petrol Sedan available today!!
@david-city takes approx 10.80 sec from 0 to 100.best petrol sedan undobtedly.
Whats its top speed????
i have touched 185 kmph in mine.but it doesn’t feel that confident on those speeds.i am sure it can easily touch 190 mark.it’s pick up drivability and acceleration you should be looking for not top speed as our indian roads are far from perfect to burn our tires on top speed on them.
I m ok with the city but worried about its ending era
it’s still more than a year in launching of complete new honda city.i don’t think it should be a major concern.
If you are looking for good driving dynamics and performance then Punto could be your choice, For features and soft ride i20 would be better, for Value for money Figo would better and overall performance, Swift would be better.
Pick up the Swift. It ticks most boxes for you.
While Swift has most tick marks, you may also consider Toyota Etios Liva new version, which should give you years of maintenance free service (Toyota engine is second to none) and performance in terms of mileage, design, road grip etc. Service network and quality of service are very poor for Punto, Polo & i20 demand expensive maintenance care and…[Read more]
I completely agree with @Revnath
From a mileage perspective all the cars are almost neck to neck considering real time fuel efficiency that you will get. When performance comes to the table the list comes down to three choices – the Swift, the i20 and the Punto. If its straight line performance that you want which is also a peaceful car to cruise on the highway, then its the i20…[Read more]
Also test drive chevrolet Sail UVA before making a decision. It is a good car worth each rupee you spend
Agree wid @Revanth
Ecosport will be give you more space (vertically), higher ground clearance and better all-round visibility. If these things don’t matter to you, go ahead and buy the i20 and enjoy its compactness, peppiness and fuel efficiency. Maintenance cost will also likely be less for i20 than for Ecosport. Choose your priorities and decide.
i20 is a premium hatchback whereas ecosport is a comapct suv. if you want to own a premium hatchback with power, space, mileage and features then i20 is for you. do not know much about eco..but surely it ha to compete with duster which is by far the benchmark in compact suv segment.
I would rather suggest you to first get your hands on the Ecosport and after a extensive test ride, it would be easier for you to decide among the 2 cars. As of now, going with the articles published on Ecosport, this car seems to be a better deal over a i20.
I would suggest you to first wait for the launch of the Ecosport…
Test drive both the vehicles and then decide..its just couple of months away from its official launch…
If u want better space,Ground clearance and an SUV for in a less price tag..i think you should definitely wait for it..
Otherwise the i20 will be very good….
Mileage would be better in i20..one has to comprise on that for sure.
You can also wait for the launching of Chevrolet “Enjoy “
looking like indigo
EGAD, Looks too much like the Indigo, Is it a face lift or a face drop.
They should seriously consider launching the SX4 cross over that they have in the markets abroad. Would take a big piece from the Duster Pie
It’s SX4 with a new grill with a different name.
total disgrassed…. rubish facelift..
PLZ HIRE SOME GOOD DESIGNER TO REDESIGN
its not face lift but facedown. This is typical 90′s design.
yes maruti has to get their act together with the sx4 which has failed in many terms.. space is now offered in cars like nissan sunny.. and the indigo manza offers too much of space compared to sx4.. lets hope the new facelift has projector headlamps as shown in the picture above.!!!
it looks very similar to kzaskhi!!!
I agree with Kamalaksh , It looks like a face down. Maruti seems to be in serious problems in coming years with lots of new cars with lots of space and features coming eg> Honda Amaze and Chevrolet Sail. They have to depend more on features list and designs unlike the past on their brand image in india
You can ask the owner of Optra Magnum about how he maintained the car, where did he get the spares, where and how frequent he serviced the car and about all nitty gritties. After getting all such info, if you think it can be manageable by yourself then go for it.
Safari may be cheaper than optra in terms of maintenance.. It isn’t that difficult to drive!
I suppose when it comes to maintenance, the Optra Magnum has an advantage. Safari in this case is older, and more prone to niggles. The safer choice would be the Magnum.
Magnum would be a better choice as it has got a very powerful engine with good build quality, suspension and ride quality. I don’t think spares is a problem as of now and wouldn’t be a problem for the next 5 to 6 years.
As you are looking for great HANDLING and BUILD QUALITY, go with the New Fiesta. Well refined engine and superb dynamics. In hatch backs, consider the Punto 90hp.
Good build quality and great handling? The Punto is one of the best among your choices. But the new Punto will come only next year. you could also look at the Linea in the same budget. SX4 Zdi is ok, but feels a bit outdated now. Chk the 90hp Punto Sport. I20 asta would be second choice. Good features, handling is average.
for good build quality and gr8 handling go for the lenia..best for cornering..and you can also hav a look at duster..
On the handling front go for the Ford Fiesta(But its extends your budget a bit). You can also consider Skoda Rapid and Fiat Linea which are very good buys. In Hatchbacks Punto 90hp is a better handler(The i20 has a very light steering and very soft suspension), but performance, equipment and build wise, the i20 has an edge over the Fiat. Yes Fiat…[Read more]
Handling and build quality – Punto 90 is the hatch, no two ways about it if both are very important to you. As a sedan I would pick the Linea simple because even though the Fiesta also handles very well, the Linea feels much better built. The Dynamic variant may fit your budget and gets the entire kit of the top variant except 16 Inch alloys,…[Read more]
Good Build Quality and Great Handling: Ford Fiesta, Fiat Linea and Punto. The only catch here is that none of these are selling more than 300 units a month, which could mean poor resale and lack of spares. In that case, you can look at the Skoda Rapid. It is well-priced, handles reasonably well (better than the Vento, as per the testers) and is…[Read more]
Punto 90 HP is well rounded package, you should also consider Linea Dynamic as Amit said it has a brighter interiors and justify the costs very well ! The Handling & built quality are no doubt best in class.
go for ford fiesta classic diesel good mileage around 22-24kmpl sure,swift dzire,fiat linea ,nissan sunny(best for 5 passengers with driver)
Cars from Fiat, Volkswagen and Skoda are known for their superior build quality. Punto / Linea, Fabia / Rapid, Polo / Vento – all these cars come with superior build quality and perfect combination or ride + handling for highway driving needs. The only down side is – their after sales support is not as good as – for example, Maruti or Hyundai.…[Read more]
I M fully agree with Dave Jose….my opinion (1) Fiat Punto / Linea, (2) Volkswagen Polo / Vento, (3) Skoda Fabia / Rapid….
Your top choices have to the the Fiat cars, Punto or Linea. Punto offers the highest GC at 185mm and the suspension is a case study for its perfect setup. Linea is a bit lower, but very good nonetheless. The other capable option is the Maruti SX4. You get Scorpio beating GC, with the assurance of Maruti’s support and low maintenance costs.…[Read more]
Ok all your criteria matches the SX4-it has high GC of 190mm that can handle some rough terrains,Good space,Handling,Best ASS,The built quality is good.The Second option would be the 2012 Linea which offers 185 mm GC and is Best solid built like a tank car,but the rear seat headroom is uncomfortable for tall passengers because of the sliding coupe…[Read more]
Try the New Fiesta. Suits your requirements but only draw back would be the service and if your are OK with the service provider near your place then just go with this car. Quietest cabin in the segment which would be less straining on long journeys, no body roll , superb handling at high speeds and even tough it’s GC is less comparatively, it…[Read more]
I would recommend the Punto Emotion or Linea Dynamic (both petrol). Great ground clearance of 185mm, a very solid built considering other cars, feels like a tank even though standard safety kit of airbags and ABS with EBD is available on many other cars, after sales service I have never faced trouble being an owner. Also yesterday there was a Fiat…[Read more]
Thanks a Tonnn.. Guys ! now I have a list to checkout for (thanks to you all). now the next week will be a tryout session and I will get back to you all, once I have two cars to choose between.
I am going to leave SX4 for now and focus on Fiat, Ford and VW…. will catch up next week.
I suggest you to go with Honda city as it is more reliable than Optra. More over, sales of Optra elite has been stopped and spare, maintenance would be problem.
Honda would be a better option here because of easier availability of spares, although the GXi has been discontinued. The Optra isn’t a bad deal either, but in the long term the Honda would be better. Since you are looking at a vehicle for bad roads, why not look at a used SUV or MUV instead of a car?
Which SUV or MUV??….Currently i am living in Rajasthan. Budget can be extended upto Rs5L and my monthly running ll be under 800Kms.
The Honda City is a much safer choice if you are buying a 7-year-old car. The Optra is a better car in terms of space and driving pleasure, though.
