  1. defenitely....can go for kappa......initial pickup is not improved........considering....1.1L engine....but  midrange.....performance is improved......

    for 3.99 lakhs <magna>...i10 with .kappa engine....is too ...pricey.... i think i10 with 1.1 L is a good buy......

    if u want more......performance......can go for swift lxi


  2. i think it is a far old concept to say....automatic drinks more fuel.......automatic give a little less than the manual ones......

    DSG box which is seen in laura is the most advanced in the automatic......which makes faster gear shifting & more or less similar....economy as that of manual....

    CVT transmission is the old technology......used in santro .....honda city.......is the one which reduces the average......


  3. palio has  75bhp & 184  Nm ....although it takes 15.4 s to rech 100kmph   ......it is good on driveability.......see the roll on times ...it takes......20-80kmph....in 3rd gear in 12.5 s better that of the swift & in 4 gear also roll on times r similar to  that of swift.......we r not going to ride on a   track.....but on cities & expressways ........were driveability....is an imp. factor.....which depends on the power band

    i think....95ps & 200Nm  with a VGT ......is  enough for ......linea is .....which is a punto with a boot......

    .......bhp is not the only factor.....power band should be wide......other wise like the case of safari & sonata embera ;.....both have good power around....

     140 ps.......but both have narrow power band which makes poor on ........ drivability......front....


  4. will anybody buy swift at fabia's price........??? MS want people to buy their car ....at a competitive price.. & wants to increase the sales......for which it uses its available engines.....avg. build quality........so that they can give the car competitive price.......SWIFT .....was a successful car not only because of its performance....& style....but also its better pricing.........


  5. i dont think logan edge will create any excitement in the market .....with its bland looks ....& hefty price.......

    M&M ...has reduced...the sales target for logan for the current year.....& it shows the performance of logan.......


  6. wrong pricing.....earlier gladi..was priced <type ja> at 47000 showroom.......

    i think this was another reason why gladiator didnt sell........while all other 125 cc bikes ....with the range starts.... 42-45ks .......resale is another factor.....

    But now yamaha has reduced prices......


  7. as u r a pulsar fan ....go for p220 which is for more better than 200......

    in terms of performance ,refinement.......

    Karizma...is another cool option......but it doesnt have the goodies ..as that of 220


  8. go for innova .....overall its a good MPV......

    mhawk scorpio......is good in performance & mileage but it has poor build quality......for such a big price........& notchy gear box compared to innova .....which is goodin its engine ,gear box & buildquality......better in overall space .comfort ....& ride quality .....is excellent for innova .....scorpio.....has  stiff suspension.....has avg. ride quality compared to innova........


  9. go for hh hunk  .......both r good bikes...............as it is a hilly area u need good ride & handling.........for which hunk is a specialist.......better resale value ... ...it has better overall build quality ....compared....... RTR gives u poor ride & it is cramped also .....its is good only for track.....not for hilly roads.......

    other choice is FZ 150 but ...not yet launched ......it surely will be a good bike....


  10. yamaha's bike r usually performance oriented.......& people believe that yamaha bike gives less mileage......

    i  believe that they had done  a  mistake in their  marketing  ....they have given enough ads (with john abraham..)........ it gives us the impression  to the common man that it only has performance .....& not good mileage....etc....... hero honda, bajaj ,tvs........ads we can see more attention to the mileage is given ........<eg bajaj....with xcd 109 kmpl  & not saying abt its performance...> thats why their bikes r selling like hot cakes.....


  11. go for unicorn if want 55-60kmpl..........it is not desirable as RTR.....in terms of looks....but has got decent power.........& most importantly performance,mileage will not deteriotate.......after years of usage.....engine & gearbox is well refined & u will not have problems  regarding engine etc......RTR's ..... gear box will become stiff & hard on usage.....it has nice RIDE & HANDLING compared.......RTR which only gives u HANDLING........& not a good ride.....

    According to me RTR is a track bike......with stiff suspension....it is good for attcking corners. in the track........not for riding in a city........it is cramped compared to other bike of its class.....& gives a on road mileage around 35 -40kmpl........

    ........u may go for hunk......which gives similar performance fig. of RTR <upto 80 km/hr>.......& u will get decent mileage around 45 -55 kmpl........as it has uni's engine with some tweaks ......it is more flickable in city compared to RTR.......it is also a good option

    PLS go the showroom & go for a test ride.......ask about the serive matter & then decide......>>>>>>


  12. u should go for ...unicorn......as one of ur priority  ....is reliability .

    overall it is a decent bike.......gives good mileage.........also comfortable for elders

    nice ride & handling...........

    but service from honda will be poor........

    dont go for discover.......too old......

    another good choice.....is......HH hunk......a good bike...,


  13. fiat launched 500 .......not for  numbers......it is launched to improve its FIAT BRAND ....<similarly BRAVO> it will be sold selected people ....& that to in metros........500

    u cannot simply compare palio & 500 ..........both r  different

    palio is for the mass market........

    u cant simply look at the BHP and rate a car.........its torque is coming @ mere 1500rpm & has a performance of 0- 100 in 12.3 s which is more than enough for cute....... stylish....retro.car.....this car is not meant for .....attacking corners

    as the jurno guys always say....... & dont look at the performance......!!!!

    ....rather the car is taken ....for style factor.....driveabilty.....&  retro  looks....




  14. Fiat Fiat India has launched the 500 in the Indian market today.
    Desperately cute and chick, this retro modern small car promises to
    charms its way into the Indian hearts and such is it charisma that a
    mere glance at it has you smiling.

    Insides are no less with some nice retro touches like the body
    coloured dashboard and huge circular instrument pod. And dont be fooled
    by its petite looks and dimensions, this little Fiat aided by its seven
    air bags scores a full five stars in the EURO NCAP occupant protection
    crash test! The car also comes with ABS + EBD as standard.





     


    The car comes with a sprightly 1.3 Litre Multijet engine with 75 bhp
    on tap at 4000 rpm and 145 nm of torque at a mere 1500 rpm!  Fiat
    claims 0-100 kph time of 12.5 seconds with a top speed of 165 kmph. It
    will be completely imported as a CBU and is available in two versions,
    Lounge and Sport, both costing Rs. 14,28,500 Ex-Showroom Delhi.


    Its expensive no doubt but then its one of those cars which appeal
    to you heart than your mind. Its not a rational purchase but an
    emotional purchase and if you dont put a price on your emotions, this
    car is priceless!  :grin:
