Read his bitter experience:https://www.facebook.com/groups/232512816781341/Then decide whether to buy or not
Liva diesel is not selling much, thats for sure. dwsAuto is getting the car tomorrow hopefully for a test drive.
dude drop your plan to buy it. It totally sucks, buy a tata vista instead or ford figo. Etios and Liva are the most suck ass cars.
i wnt tu tl yu tht etios liva is not a good car from toyota so dnt buy tht it hs no nyc interiors go fr figo i20 or punto
can’t take it it…..go 4 i20 CRDi or polo TDi
its a crapy car
not impressive .
there are many options at the same price. but if u jus want a practical spacious car which is comfortable and fairly good to drive, then liva wil serve ur purpose well. well i do not agree to prasanna who says its crappy cos its not a bad car at all.other few cars may give few extra stuff and others may be more fun to drive but as a overall…[Read more]
Have you test driven it? That is the only real test. You may find the noise and vibrations tolerable, or may totally hate it.
Yes it is crappy straight from Japan,I say even the Etios and its sibling is like a tractor,Ouch Tata Vista is better than this car,Friend what will you get after paying 6 lakhs for diesel version only the standard features,But look at the competition,they are far more better this car.I say The company ppl are just selling a soapbox with wheels.
go for cruzie and if you may increase ur bugdet slightly u can go for the new jetta.another good choice is the new corrola altis.. best choice in ur bugdet.
?Vishwas Bharadwaj Captiva and Merc under Rs 15 lakh..?
As someone said above, Jetta is a great choice, but it is a bit mroe expensive. If you don’t want it, then you have the Cruze and Laura. Both are great cars.
Cruze is a graet car.you should go for it.
Oops thought he was buying an used one!,sorry then cruze is a best one
Go for either cruze or laura.. Interiors of laura is good.. Damn spacious and powerful car..
:O :O jetta !! altis !! what about new ford fiesta ?
?@ mr. bharadwaj – He was ??
mean you were considering an used one
as per ur requirements i wud suggest to go for a used laura (l&k version). Or else go for new cruze.
hmm i think u should buy volkswagen beetle. but ur budget is less.so try next year when ur budget gos to 22lkah
not so good when compared to marutis
maruti is still better
A friend of mine says he gets an average of 15 kmpl in city (Chennai) driving conditions.. In worst case except 12 kmpl as average and may be you can calculate the running cost based on this mileage.
on highway 15kmpl in city 12
can Hyundai Verna Fluidic 1.4 CRDi also an option?
Hyundai Verna Fluidic 1.4 CRDI . fiat linea is also a better option but there is spare parts n sevice peroblem.fiat ki servies TATA moters wale karte hai aur kuch majedari wali baat nahi hai.n second thing is fiat linea has no resale vale in compare to verna and sx4
howz car performance and space
car performance of fiat linea is gud.weight is much better then sx4 n verna. but space is all about equal of these cars.fiat linea is 93 bhp power n verna n sx4 both r 90 bhp power.the avg mileage if linea is near about 18 kmpltr
kumar… jus go for the sx4. its the best deal out of the 2 because, maruti service is efficient and hassle-free and tata service is pathetic. the top model linea has lots of features, but in the base models the sx4 wil serve u better. they hav the same engine so performance is the same, but the sx4 has more ground clearance and more space. fiat…[Read more]
Linea is the better car. Fiat is building up own network. We can except better service after that though current service isnt that bad. On-roll accelaration of linea is great.
what is max delivery time for linea and sx4, will maruti strike affect delivery?
maruti is shifting to gujrat.stike will go on till diwali i m not sure about sx4 u can confirm from showroom of maruti
Yes the Production of Alto,SX-4,A-star has been stopped
dealer not giving any commitment, i think i need to wait for this month. well is it affecting production of swift too, i heard some welding plant is started today!?
SX4 diesel is a safer buy. Linea owners have some complaints about small problems that dont end. Wait if you can.
Oh no! I own a Civic automatic. Honda cars are not meant to run on CNG. The authorised servcie will not do it for you obviously, so the kit will have to be fitted elsewhere. It can be done, but it is quite likely to kill the engine fast. i-Vtec engines are sophisticated petrol engines which are not tolerant towards CNG. Warranty and resale value…[Read more]
Not advisable. I’ve seen an Accord with CNG fitted in it. It’s engine sounded very rough.
thanx guys…….but rising fuel prices ka kya karein doston..??!!!
honda cars are not for cng
Swap for Diesel cars.Simple
Buy a car with company fitted cng options like wagon R , Santro ect…
are you going for petrol or diesel. If petrol, the Figo is a little under powered and may not suit especially for highway driving. If diesel, both Figo and Micra are good, but Figo comes with a lesser price tag but more features while Micra comes with all goodies at a higher price tag.
Rear window in Figo doesn’t fully roll down – thats TRUE
Try Figo if price is your concern,if you don’t mind about stretching a little bit then there are more of good vehicles than Micra,say for eg.,Punto,i20 etc
if u r looking for diesel then go for ford figo.becoz nissan micra giving useless option these is no use of that in daily day today life.only wastage of money
Figo is spacious, value for money.. and Micra is premium, European style and quality. It depends on which is more important for you.
go fr micra
its a nyc car thn figo it hs btr design btr features
but yu want diesel thn go for figo bcaus figo hs btr in diesel as micra diesel yu get only in tp variant and yu dont get ABS in tht
and apassenger air bag also yu dnt get
go for figo man
Figo is very reasonable to maintain. No maintenance issues. Its great to drive and good mileage. Feels good to won the same.
Anybody here took a test drive of the XUV500?We are road testing it right now, so will have a good idea soon. If you are OK with Scorpio, the XUV will definitely feel much better to drive. Interiors are better too, though not up to Rs 11 lakh sedan car standards. Looks nice from sides and back, and front is OK.
Best car in features and at reseonable price makes it a winner.Now crossed 8000 bookings! and the White color is in demand it seems
Heard the XUV 500 bookings have been stopped, not sure though
yea it is said that the all wheel drive version bookings has stopped but the rest is still goin on i guess…….has anyone test drived it yet??? how does it feel??
its bookings have been stoped in delhi for all the varients
we cant say anything about engine performance . but comfort of this car is much better then scorpio and safari
Filming the XUV500 is turning out to be a lesson in crowd control. Wherever we took it crowds gathered… it’s like some Bollywood celebrity!
go for the verna wont go wrong with it…avoid volswagen higher maintainance costs
What is your priority?
ford fiesta classic or i20
How is i20 as a car??
these r the options under 7.5 lakhs – 1) polo tdi – excellent ride-handling. spacious. classy. very good engine, but lacks features. and less service stations 2) i20 – spacious, big car feel, features, good engine + power. but lacks handling and high speed stability. ride quality is good but not as good as say polo or punto. 3) fabia – same as…[Read more]
yu should go fr i20 diesel asta or sportz mdl definately
I would say Punto 1.3 and ose over Swift if you are seeking performance.But if you need a lot of features and with same swift engine Indica Vista is good
I would shortlist – POLO – VW badge, great handling and control, better fit n finish of interiors, almost rattle-free.Fabia – luxurious and spacious feeling inside the car, great handling.Punto (90 HP) – Nice performer.
go for volkswagen polo aur skoda fabia.and tata manza polo gives in 1200cc with 75 bhp power.mileage is near about 17kmpltr.same engine features is in skoda fabia. but if we talk about tata manza that gives in 1248 cc 90 bhp power.n mileage is much impressive.according to me u should go for volkswagen polo tdi
Thx guys…. 4 ol ur sgstns
its amazing people still buying petrol…..just wanna say hathi kharid to lenge par paalege kaise??
go for diesel it wont recover in 3 yrs bt may b in 5 yrs but nobody knows petrol may b 100/lit after few months…..of if u can adjust with cng then its another option.
go for ritz diesel..have good mileage n good performance
Out of these swift is the leader but my pick out of this is punto. Its a great handler and a head turner on road for sure with adequate power and features…
vikas i think diesel car is 1 lac higher priced, i can use that money to drive petrol atleast for 3 years as my daily running is not much, correct me if i am wrong. please help me choosing car considering all aspects.
Well you say you wont drive your car more than 50kms a day and your budget is well given.At 5.5 lakhs on-road you will get I10 sports model,and the petrol engine is refined as well.The maintenance is a bit higher than that of maruti but its manageable.Else if you need a great petrol motor will aggressive looks then have a look the Brio which is…[Read more]
Go for diesel….
u can buy nissan sunny
?@vishwas i’ll definatly think on brio, thanks for info. @upendra well lower model showroom price is 5.80, it wont fit in my budget for on road price.
i’ll go for diesel its better to give money once n njoy. giving 500-1000 everyday or in 2 days is painful . now adays diesel technology is competing petrol no doubt .cars like bmw n skoda cums in diesel no 1 can say diesel have low pick up or sumthng…….i’ll alwys go fr diesel
as per ur requirement i think u shud go for SWIFT. as its looks good, the engine is also frugal, has low maintenance cost its A.S.S. is also good. Also look for i20.only its draw back is its less frugal.but a safe &sturdy car.
?@vikas well can you give me some diesel cars which fits in my budget
@yogesh ty mate.
Indica eV2 top model? what about this car?
first think of buying some petrol .. then we can think of buying a car
There’s nothing worng in going for Indica eV2 if you are not concerned of its’TAXI’ where many of them consider as one.Well why do taxi market owns this car? because its fuel efficient and VFM.So the features are good in the LX trim,but the rear power windows are missing.But you get a good music system with alloy wheels and the seats are very…[Read more]
abey tel mai bhajiyaa talega kya

thanks vishwas, keeping eV2 as an optional.. what all other diesel cars will fit in my budget Indigo eCS/CS?
?Kumar Bhawar …. maruti alto le le …
ya fir Tata Nano
kya time pass kar raha hai Pravin Sivan
life hi time pass hai mere bhaii … opinions bahut honge … but ek cheez bolta hoon … visit 5 to 10 showrooms of different brans
then sit at home n do a swat analysis .. then Buy
In which city do you reside?
yes Pravin Sivan nice idea. ty… if i get little idea which cars are better with all aspects, it will be easier to decide after showroom visit.
u cav also go for Ford Figo…
diesel car – nt ev2 its nt upmarket bt vista is a great one.u will get the base model in less than 5 50 i guess.base model have atleast ac power steering etc. but if u can manage around 6 then u can get vista vx loaded wid feautes n also has abs.
u hav to adjust sumwhere vista offers d most space even most of d sedan dont have such xcept of tata’s. if u want space then vista is great bt tata service is nt vry gud.. swift is also an option bt has less space n waitng tym bt service is gud
space wise figo is gud bt i alwys read mixed reviews about it awsum car,bad car no one says nrml car
?@vikas thanks for info, visited tata showroom (padit auto) yesterday, i am 6.3 feet tall and vista car roof was just touching head, was not feeling comfortable.. after asking sales executive he said only top end models have driver seat height adjustment. i liked the car but height seems be an issue.
so which 1 u decide
today visited 2 showrroms ford(figo), hyundai(i20)…. i20 is spacious but seems overpriced and not much pickup. figo looks just ok car but waiting period for both car is more than 1 month. (they have lots of booking pending for diwali)
visiting maruti today evening for swift and ritz… btw tata guys just called and are ready to give ev2 lx immediately.
i guess swift would be the right option..considering your daily run and the budget, u shud b prety o rather mre hapier with its perfomance n quality..morova it has excellent afta sale service n is also high on resale lookin at its demand..also has a good design n mileage,, o if can wait for decmber for new swift desire compact wich would hardly…[Read more]
thanks @rajneesh, vikas, rajat, vishwas, pravin, apurba, upendra, yogesh & sonia for suggestions and helping me choose car. maruti test drive for both cars was nice. ritz seems just ok to me, nice height and space in car..body shape not so impressive and looks more compact. swift drive feel was impressive, suspension and pickup was…[Read more]
should i stretch budget and get zdi with all features or vdi without abs is ok? is it worth paying 80000 extra for those features?
i think its of no use 2 pay dat extra amount..n ma frnd u made a rite choice on swift..grt car with grtst of the perfrmanc in d segment..n considering ur run, petrol wud b js fin….as also to knowledge u mre,looking at d downfall of petrol variants, government is tryin 2 get d diff betwn petrol n diesel closer fr atlst the private vehicles if not…[Read more]
yes, except India all other countries are charging diesel with just 5-10% difference(even in pakistan its 94rs petrol – 79 rs diesel). well there is no guarantee of petrol either.. from last june 2010 our so called govt. has increased almost 19rs. (rs. 56 to 75), it may reach up to 100 till 2012 year end. where as to reach 80 rs mark diesel will…[Read more]

i20 ‘d b best
cng increased 2 rs petrol car k other fuel option bh govt mhnge kr rhi h. ab to bhaiya diesel hi dubte ko sahara h.although it may also rise bt if its rising 2rs then petrol by 3rs ……bye bye petrol.its getting difficult to ride my bike frget about cars
Just keep two options Toyota Liva and i10 1.2 kappa engine.
swift is also a good option but price is very high for swift .
i20 spertz after disounts costs exact 5.50 lakhs on road
New Swift is gr8 go for it..
Go for Skoda Fabia Active plus or Liva G variant!!!!!!
among these cars, the swift makes the best choice. consider the brio as well or even the jazz if you can stretch a bit
I like Grande Punto but Swift and Hyundai i20 are safer options. i20 has more space so if you frequently lug 5 people, its a better option. Also the ride is quite comfy though handling is so so. If you want great handling and slightly less space is not a problem, then there is nothing to beat Swift.
why BEAT diesel is not considered so far ?
better go with chevrolet beat diesel
Why don’t you got a 3/4 years old Honda City, Maruti SX4 or Honda Civic. One of my friends recently bought a 4 year old (but very good, almost new like condition) Honda Civic only for 5.25 Lakhs.
ford figo,,ritz..diesel could be an option
I want to buy a new car and i have shortlisted toyota liva G,nissan Micra XE and Hyundai I10 magna.Guys kindly advice me with ref. to Performance,Comfort,maintainance cost etc….

from the three that you have mentioned , all of these are comfy in the front seats while the punto and the i20 have a bit more comfort in the rear seats. for reliability nothing beats the swift(both svc in numbers and technically) !! though all three of them are on par with each other. looks are totally subjective to personal…[Read more]
