cr-v vs laura vs jetta

Recommended Posts

Need to buy a new car. Currently driving the corolla and also have the old sonata. Confused b/w the automatic CR-v vs the auto diesel jetta vs the diesel laura. Also looking at the passat and the new corolla.

Budget is max 20 ish. Drive around 4000 km a month and not many long drives. Living in delhi.

Like the cr-v as a car but the only downside is the mileage. Jetta and laura are diesel but cr-v gives me a different type since i havnt driven an SUV before. But not rigid on the SUV since I dont go for many long drives. Just comparing cars and their features and the driving pleasure which one would you recommend for the city. Passat may get too big for the city since I want it for everyday driving rite?

If you think the cr-v is the best option as a car then i could comprimise regarding the mileage but if the other cars are better then i could change my mind.

Please suggest. Thanx

CR-V 2.0 has only manual. For auto you will have to choose 2.4 auto 4x4.

 

If an auto is at top of your list than passat or laura are the cars.

 

If not you can choose between mileage/price or auto/4X4.

 

And choose between

CR-V 2.0 and CR-V 2.4

 

I own a CR-V 2.0 (few months old) having fun but bought specially for bad bombay roads and highway driving.

Well since mileage of CR-V is a concern for you and you are interested in buying an SUV go for the Captiva..CR-V is a very good car but there is no diesel option..jetta and laura are capable cars but it seems you are interested to buy a Suv..go for the Capiva if mileage is one of ur priorities

Captiva does not have auto option. I think Laura or Jetta would suit you as you do 4000km a month i.e., 48000kms annually. If you buy CRV auto, it will be very expensive to maintain considering that it is Petrol + Automatic.

 

Go for Laura or Jetta if you are keen on Automatic and go for Captiva if you are Chaffeur-driven or ready to compromise with driving comfort (if self-driven).

The Laura ilokks best in the lot , but  maintainence cost is too high ,i would prefer you to wait for the upcoming new Corolla which is expected in Diesel Engine!

Well man 4k kms per month you Should be going for the Diesel , incase you ever plan to buy a petrol one go for the Honda ACCORD , its damm good and much much better than the CRV ,  well i still feel you should be going for the Diesel , in Diesel you could go for the Laura Diesel Ambiente!

Cheers!!!

I own a 2.0 M/T

 

So neither can I tell the exact mileage nor the quality of A/T.

 

But what I heard from other 2.4 owners is less than 6km per litre.

4000 Kms per month means you must go for a Diesel. If you want a SUV then Captiva. Endevour is a good & ruggesd vehicle but big for city use. My friend has one and he is very pleased, as no major exp after driving 80000 kms.

 

If you want a car, then I will prefer Laura over Jetta as Laura is a known devil and service more widely available. However best option will be to wait for new Corolla Petrol. It will be a new vehicle with latest technology, will have the Toyota reliability and trouble free service. It will be a very comfortable car and the lower purchase cost will more than compensate the running cost of petrol.

 

If you drive yourself then go for an automatic to enhance the driving comfort.

Still the 2.4lt manual is a better deal if FE is not main criterion and if one wants a VFM .Because it has silver splashes 6 cd changes ,4wd for just 1.25lakhs more

rssh you seem to have some wrong info.

 

2.4 manual is actually more than 1.6L costlier plus it is 2000+cc so more on insurance too.

 

And it doesn't have 4X4

 

the diff is:-

6 cd changer

chrome door handels(body coloured in 2.0)

silver trim on the steering (black on 2.0)

Sun-roof

Hydraullic power steering while its electronic for 2.0

 

CR-V 2.4 A/T

has 4x4 extra other than the M/T 2.4 (And its A/T)

these two things for an extra 75K.
