  1. if the news is true then its indeed a great news ....accent deisel can give a tough fight to rivals like desire deisel and ikon deisel ...both desire and ikon r selling mainly in their deisel form ..and aceent is unable to give them a fight in the deisel market ... but i dont agree with converting i20 into a sedan ...m sure hyundai will not do that ...it makes no sense as i20 already has a 300l boot space which is more then enough for any practical use ...moreover giving adding a boot to a hatch doesnot add to passenger space ...then what is the use of meesing up with gorgeous looks of i20.... and we should not forget hyundai has build a prestige all over the world in a passage of time....now its world no.4 just below ....toyota , gm and volkswagon....hence it wud not like to leave an impration that its designers competent to design a new car from srap if they have to design call it a sedan rather they prefer to add or subtract boot ...we should not expect same stupidity as tata and suzuki do in india ... looking forward for new accent crdi...it will rock for sure
  2. already said many times that new santro wud be just a little changes in interiors and revised suspension ....i personally dont think picanto will replace santro ....moreover picanto looks more a hotch potch than santro in looks....better hyundai stick to original desing and improve on its weaknesses ....such a ride and dull interiors ....rest is simply awesome in this car....
  3. ikon is more of a safer buy than logan as it is a well established product in india ...logan is not doing well ...and u cant be sure of its resale value also ....moreover ....ikon give u better status value than logan ....and we all know this mont autocars 20000km all india drive in ikons...changed my perception abt the car competely ....
  4. i20 already considered to be the best premium deisel hatch by autocar last month ...moreover ...no other car in the segment is as complete as car as i20 ...once u can afford it ....u should buy it ...
  5. i think people wud have gone for fabia if they wanted to ...one who want good a.s.s...he wont go for fabia ...fabia is indeed the best hatch...if i neglect jazz ...but still i20 is selling much more than fabia ...simply because people trust hyundai more for a.s.s than skoda....so a common buyer with this much money wud go for i20 crdi ...also hyundai deisel is sure to be better than as in fabia..and hyundai enjoy better respect as company as compared to skoda and .... and we should forget more than 1000 jazz were booked in first month of launch ....and people were saying it wont sell as it is too pricey for a hatch ... now people dont mind spending more for a better product ....and i20 crdi can even beat many sedans for utlity and style ....moreover cars like these r not for everyone ...it is for those who want it ....
  6. grand vitara never was the leading car in the segment and it will never be ....as a person spending nearly 2o lakh wud like his car to represent his status ....and status comes through greater brand value ...and that is where maruti lacks ....thanks to its earstwhile cheap products ...which has given indians and also the world a perception that maruti makes cheap quality products...and who wud like to spend on a car ....costing around 20 lak and sharing some parts of the interior with swift that cost 1/3 of the grand vitara ....
  7. i think there will be some changes in the indian design ...specially at the rear .....m tired now of unusual designs ...like a star , ritz , dezire etc... all this makes me realize that what is new is not always worth buying ...but lets wait and see that does gm launch the same car or make some changes ...i hope for the little cosmetic change in design ....
  8. ritz really looks ugly from some angles ....i10 does look more modern more decent looks ...again ritz got a severe flaw ...that is ....boot only 178l ....how funny for a family car ..in comparision to i10's 225 l ..although both can be equally fuel efficient ...after sale service ..both hyundai and maruti rock ... so go for ritz if u want maruti only ...otherwise i10 a still the best hatch ....a complete family hatch ...
  9. it is obvious that hyundai will put the deisel in i20 which will bring more sales ....and fuel economy is at priority these days..and it should be...i dont think that majority of people wud buy a deisel i20 if it doesnot give them as good economy as swift or punto ...today people can spend big money in the beginning but want the car to be less expensive to run in daily course ....i want hyundai to put the most efficient deisel in i20 ....as it is good for both people and enviroment ..
  10. in india ...honda has earned reputation for giving the best in the segment ...and thats not without reasons..the car is definetely better than rest of the premium hatches ...hence it deserves to sell ...and m really very happy that indian's intelligence is growing as they r paying 8lakh ...for the so called hatch ...although this hatch is much better than most of the sedan at present ...and it deserves to sell good ...
  11. great news 4 those who want a deisel only ....hyundai's crdi have proved themselves..as drivers delight ...hope this time delight doesnot go out of the reach of those who wants to own one ....but this will complete the i20 as perfect premium hatch ...
  12. some companies think making a car is their responsibilty ...and it well sell itself...specially in competiting market like india ...and then this is what happens... first hindustan motors spoiled itself ...and now mitsubishi is spoiling itself with collaboration with h.m. but indeed cedia is a great car and buy ...
  13. good and bad bits of both .... GOOD BITS... PALIO ... 1 . tough build 2 . great space 3 . big boot 4 . better ride BAD BITS ...PALIO .... 1 . poor after sale service ( compared to swift ) 2 . dated looks ( but to me still looks better than swift ) GOOD BITS ..SWIFT... 1 . good after sale service 2 . good handling 3 . better fuel economy ( although it depends on ur driving style ) BAD BITS ..SWIFT .... 1 . poor build quality 2 . poor passenger space 3 . poor boot space 4 . ride not as great as palio 5 . as common as alto ..dont know it a good thing or bad 6 . dull dark interiors...now looks dated too 7 . costlier than palio ...dont why it is .. so for me ...palio is much much better hatch in diesel as petrol than swift ....swift sells because its a maruti ...not because its the best hatch .... palio does not sell much because of not great after sale service of fiat ..although its a better car than swift ...rishi-del2009-06-07 18:43:27
  14. verna....was never a great looking car ...accent still looks better than verna....with this new bumper hyundai has just tried to make it look little sporty ...but ...i dont think majority of people wud like it ....even earlier look was more elegant .....verna is selling only due to crdi ....
  15. dear none of the car u mentioned here have not been launched ....and i suspect that they will not be launched even in next 6 months .. u better go for linea ....if u have good fiat/tata dealership in ur town ...or .. u stick to verna deisel ....
  16. my uncle got his i20 recently...what a car man ...u cant take ur eyes away from it for some time ....just too gud to resist ...and it is indeed fantastic value for money....
  17. my uncle got it delivered last week ...his is magna ..the car is stunning ....looks way superior then present premium hatches ...and once u drive or own it then u realise it was worth waiting for it ....
  18. dear sujith ... i have never commentd on any maruti or any other car without a reson ...u can call me a maruti hater or hyundai lover ..or whatever u want ...but i have travelled a lot in dzire a my friend own one ..and being a dzire owner i doubt that u wud agree ..but dzire hss a cheaper build quality than even my santro ...u can experience it personally if u want ... now abt space i hope u know it well that dzire has lesser interior space than even getz , vista, uva, and other entry level sedan ... so now if u want me to regard dzire as sedan just bacause it looks big or has three box design ..than m sorry ...for me sedan is all abt qulity , comfort and space ...not just to look like a sedan .... no hard feelings please ...rishi-del2009-05-24 14:59:27
  19. accent is the only proper sedan ...dzire was not meant to b a sedan ...maruti added a boot and people started assuming it to be sedan ...so it lacks the basics of a sedan ....the same is with indigo ...not to forget indigo will be replaced by indigo vista earlier than accent phased out ... guys we r in india ...here even 60 YEARS old AMBI and 30 year old 800 r being sold ..and u guys r dreaming of accent being phased out .... accent is safe to buy for another 10 years ..i can gaurantee that ....even esteem was being sold till last year .. accent is certainly the best sedan among the said threes ....it has best looks , best interiors , better qualitiy , best ride , most powerful engine , one of the best resale value and after sale service ....then what can stop one o go for it ....and interior space is also next to indigo ...not to forget u can get C.N.G. AND L.P.G...alps within 5.5lac....
  20. well fiesta cud have been a great car ..but service centre is 250km away .... ....now abt verna ....not the best option tha tu have but u can have it for good after sale service ...and also good spave and comfort .... i wud suggest u to go for ....honda city ( older one , if u cud find one in good conditon ..in 7lac u can get as good as new )...it is definitely the best sedan since long time ... or u can go for ..aveo ...( but again if u dont have ford dealership nearby then chances r that u the same cud be cheverolet also .. at last i wud suggest u .. 1...go for as good as new honda city if u can get one ... 2...go for verna as u mentioned ..not as great as fiesta in performance..but will be a good value for money ...specially sx version .. 3...go for aveo....or sx4...
  21. well i have also been tagged as hyundai lover and maruti hater ....but i understand that ..it is like criticizing katrina kaif for penelop cruze in india ...who will like it here .. but ritz is certainly better than other maruti products if utilization of space is considered ... in other words ...if swift is crazy ...then ritz is sensible ...but again maruti still not showing much sense by spoiling the boot space ..same was done with a.star and now with ritz...and build is still far away from the best ...i.e. i10 . and bluesapphire ... boot is 178l ...maruti wont tell u ..as it is a negative point of the car ..but who cares...our AUTOCAR ZINDABAD ...
  22. jazz the best of the lot ...best engine with maximum power ...most spacious ..good build ...and the biggest boot as well ....not to forget it will fatch the highest resale value at the end....so if u can wait for the jazz , nothing better than that ....but it will be most expensive in the competition ... fabia ...toughest build ..very spacious..boot is also good at around 300l ...best ride ...but weak engine and not as great after sale service as others ... i20...again as spacious as fabia ..enough boot space at 295l ....great build quality ...good engine for city ...great looks inside and out ...and the great after sale service of hyundai....with innumerable numbers of features .. remember jazz will not be as feature rich as i20... ritz ...not a premium hatch i believe ...less spacious than any of others...not sufficient boot space at just 178l...cheapest build quality as compared to others ...and not as good looking as others...buy it only if u r looking for deisel ..but dont expect it to be as comfort rich as premium hatch .... so at last ..i wud suggest ..either wait for jazz that will be the best option ...or go for i20 ...it has what u want and much more .. happy buying ...
  23. great buy for sedan buyers..for daily office commute ....specially in the cities where c.n.g. is not easily available ...

    RITZ or SWIFT

    ritz....is surely better than swift...it has got better engine in petrol ( although i read somwhere that ritz petrol engine is not as free reving as older swift engine ...the test driver said that he was surprised to c that a suzuki engine is not moving to upper band of power freely ..as they r famous for )...but otherwise ..u get same diesel as swift , marginally better soace , better quality than swift ( but swift was not a standard fot qulity )...but it is cheaper and wud be more fuel efficient .... but u get lesser boot space than swift ... so if it is going to b used mostly in city than it is better option than swift ...in other words u can say swift to be taken to college and ritz to be taken to office ... and personally i do like the looks of ritz over swift ...the rear of ritz although not conventional but make u stand out in the crowd ...
  25. mahindra renault ..shown the indian what a proper sedan means ....sedan is not a hatch with boot ...rather it must give u the space and comfort more than a hatch .. now a days cars like indica vista , getz , i20 , fabia , and even uva offres more space than dzire .. and we call it sedan..
