  1. If condition of all options is good and exteriors are fine too, I think Civic is a good deal. I second @Bornfree that Corolla should also be available at this price point and segment.
  2. Boy i really thank GOD that i am not into the market for buying a hatch, because its mind boggling number of models with different qualities - Liva and Etios have the T badge, new Swift is good but will be too common, Micra, Ritz, Wagon R, Figo, Alto , i10, i20, Beat and more. I pray for the new hatch buyer that he gets what he needs because its too confusing.

  4. Yes , he finally bit the bullet and went with his heart. White Punto active diesel is his new proud posession. I feel the deal he got from the dealer made it worth it. To sell his previous car was a problem too, hence he exchanged it with the new one at the dealership and also got loyalty discount - 20k, cash discount 10k, free insurance and 3 month diesel scheme 6.5k, almost 50k discount for a diesel (not so bad diesel actually) and all in all i think its a good deal. I wish him luck. What you guys think?
  5. Again test drove Punto, dealer had 90 hp for test drive, said would arrange for 75 hp one later. The ride is brilliant, i wasnt happy with engine noise when accelerating and the jerk when accelerator is pressed and left. Fellow owners can comment because the test drive vehicle was ill maintained with around 13k on odo. Doors felt solid, gearshift was average. His heart is all for punto, mind says beat, figo or swift. He is going to drive figo again, swift (old or new)- waiting will wipe it again from contention. When is the Beat diesel coming?
  6. He is going to wait for Beat diesel launch as of now, but day by day his passion to own a punto is increasing. Hope he gets what he needs.
  7. He is not happy with figo diesel only for the low ground clearance and susceptibility to under body damage when fully loaded, as he visits rural roads often. Ritz - he is not happy with the looks. Having owned a fiat - he is all praise for punto, service costs being the only apprehension. He liked the swift drive but the ride put a blemish on a good report card. He is all confused like all of us when we go for a new vehicle purchase. He wants reviews from existing punto, swift and figo owners, HELP please.
  8. After using his 6 year old Palio ELX 1.9 D and almost happy with it (but for fuel efficiency and service issues), he is looking for a replacement. He wants: Comfortable, well built, fuel efficient diesel hatch. He has shortlisted : Figo Diesel , Punto Diesel, Swift Diesel. (All base models). Cant wait for new models, wants it in a month or so. Does not want : Tata Indica Vista diesel, Ritz diesel, Indigo CS, Logan. Out of budget: Micra D, i20 diesel,Polo diesel. Worried about : Service costs and long term reliability. What do u guys advise ?
  9. Mahindra Scorpio - Better interiors, climate control. Tata Nano - Diesel engine. VW Polo - Vento Diesel 1.6 engine. Mahindra Verito -- More power (100 plus) from the 1.5 litre diesel engine. Suzuki SX4 -- More power and better interiors.
  10. Thank God i didnt buy City in march, i almost had it. Was getting just free insurance at 8.78 ex showroom S model and 8.28 E model. 7.49 for the E with ABS and airbags is a steal. I still like the car very much though i bought new verna. Perfect second choice for me.
  11. Been just a week with the vehicle and its getting on me. I am trying hard to drive reasonably in running in period. I like the suppleness of ride around 70 km/h , gives big car feel than viva crdi I had earlier. Pick up is linear till 2000 rpm and haven
