~90 HP modern day CRDi diesel engine is perfectly okay for an entry level MUV. Yes, you won’t get performance stats like a sedan, a hatchback or an SUV but it does not matter for a family vehicle.
Yes, its underpowered..they shud have given power but i guess they did it as a cost cutting measure this could be one of the reasons..
it feels underpowered when fully loaded.Also there is massive turbolag and u feel it especially in climbing ghats with more passengers .
I have Ertiga with me. You can have performance when you have 4 or 5 people in the car. But when you need to put 7 people plus little luggage then it becomes a practical car and sure will move the people but performance comes down. But for large families and occasional relatives visit this car is the best. Has the luxury and comfort and you need…[Read more]
As long as you can keep the turbo spooled, it is more than enough. If a person feels it is underpowered, that is probably turbo lag which is felt, once the turbo spools the 1.3 MJD from Fiat is ‘more than enough’ strong even on full payload which is about 1.5 to 1.7 tonnes for the Ertiga. Regards.
If you ask me, it was always a good buy after that price reduction. Even if it is discontinued, I think it is perfectly okay to buy it because in any case Honda is going to roll out a new variant in 2014, which (in all likelihood) will share many parts with the existing version of Jazz so part unavailability won’t be an issue.
Its a very good car..i wanted to buy it but honda stopped taking bookings for it…it looks good n performance is also good..but i heard they are getting it back in 2014..n also a compact suv on d jazz platforn..
That’s true. The new Jazz and a compact MPV from Honda are expected next year. Both will come with diesel options.
for how much can we get a used jazz that is in good condition
I think both have waiting period close to 4 or 5 months. Book both and wait for what is allotted to you. Or you can decide even after booking as you have lot of time. By the time you will know the drawback of Amaze too as users will be providing it. To me both are nice cars.
Amaze is a serious competitor n its a practical car out of the two. And also its booking are increasing n its better than d dezire in most of the aspects..
petrol or diesel ?
Dzire is fun to drive but Amaze is a Practical car.
Considering the quality and cost cutting of both, I would rather take the Vista D90 or the i20 (if the budget permits), both can do just about everything that the above mentioned cars can. Regards.
Petrol if your running is less than 1000km per month otherwise diesel..but petrol has better pick up, good engine, and petrol varient is cheaper than the diesel varient…or can wait for the ecosport it will come around mid june..
In two words, Honda Amaze. But I like the way @Amit thinks.
Ideally get a set of polyurethene / rubber mats ,over your regular floor mats. These can be washed every other day and will keep your car clean. Costs just about Rs. 700 a set.
from these 3,Go for Verna and also consider Nissan Sunny…:)
Only the Vento satisfies all your requirements. Especially on the highway the Vento drives like a dream – second only to the Linea in my opinion. The in-gear acceleration of the Tdi on the Vento beats every car in its segment (except its twin the Skoda Rapid), pretty useful when you are overtaking in tight situations.
but after taking test drive i found that there is some similarity in the initial pick up of city and vento!!!! but how is the ivtec on highway in comparison with the city?????? suggestions plzzzzz
^…comparision with the vento
try doing this experiment – keep in 4th gear and drop ur speed to around 30-40kmph with both cars and then slam on the accelerator and see what happens:-) both the city and vento will start to pull, but the vento will leave the city faar behind. the city will eventually catch up once the engine revvs climb, but thats besides the point, the point…[Read more]
If I was in the same dilemma, I would have picked City over Vento and Rapid (Diesel). Its almost 2 lakhs cheaper and a practical choice. You get all the features too. Unless the highway is crammed with vehicles and you have to do a lot of overtaking, City can definitely match up to these cars. Like Hrishik mentioned, no substitution for driver judgement!
A car’s warranty can be classified into – engine warranty, cycle parts warranty and electrical warranty… installing after market horns may void the electrical warranty if any wires are cut and if any damage occurred to the original equipments.. Regards
Ask Hyundai to install second horn to void warranty..
You can install twin horns with a relay. In fact, if you ask the Hyundai dealer – they will gladly do it themselves. They will tell you about warranty issues to discourage you from getting it fitted aftermarket.
The category diesel/petrol that is supplied to the fuel stations is controlled by the refineries which in turn are controlled by the Govt of India. For your information, the diesel currently being distributed is ULSD or diesel which has 15ppm sulphur in it.
what is Bharat Stage?
@Mr.Sidharth, Bharat stage is emission norm instituted by Govt. of India to regulate the output of air pollutants frm internal combustion engines…. regards
Bharat Stage is like the Euro emission standards used in Europe. In fact, a lot of parameters of BS-IV currently in practice are similar to Euro-IV parameters.
….Sedan must be Petrol…..
If petrol, my pick is Honda City i-VTEC which is the best petrol car in the segment & wud fulfill all d demands lyk engine,mileage, interior quality n all… regards
honda city or dzire..best petrol engines at present. honda will be my pick.
