  1. The freeway is really good. The main drawback is that it takes about 45 minutes to reach the entrance when you are travelling from Regal, Colaba which is about 2 km away.
  2. Now that the launch of Honda Amaze is just around the corner, do u guys think it would be worth waiting for it? I am planning to buy the car in April.
  3. Thank you everyone. I have almost decided on i20 Magna diesel. Though I have to test drive both petrol and diesel cars. Still a long way to go as I ma planning to buy in March. One query guys. Does i20 Magna diesel or petrol have rear parkin sensors and parking assist ? Most of the website say yes, but when I asked the salesperson, he said its available only in higher models.
  4. @ BHP Junkie I really like the looks of Toyota Etios Liva but aint thinking about it as the car has flopped. Dont know the exact reasons why it didn work in the market. How are the reports ?
  5. Thanks Sumeet. I tried sitting in i20 drivers seat and found it pretty comfortable. My only concern regarding the i20 petrol are the two points I mentioned above. I tried the Swift and found it too congested. Ritz is a total no no for me because of its looks.

This is my first post on this forum. I am planning to buy a premium hatchback within a budget of 6 to 7.5 lac (Flexible as I havent decided on diesel or petrol). I have read almost all reviews on these cars and pretty know the merits and demeits of both. The space (or the lack of it) on the swift was a big downer. My height is 5 ft 11 in. I found it difficult to sit on the steering seat.It looked cramped. Hardly any leg space. I would have gone for i20 blindly but these two things are holding me. 1. The underpowered petrol engine. Have read in almost all reviews that the engine is underpowered. My question is, is it so underpowered that it should prevent me from buying it? I am 30 but havent driven around a lot over the years as we have an Innova and usually my dad drives it. This car is a pleasure to drive. I do reach maximum speeds of 130-140 kph. Dont ever recall going above these speeds. But I do like speeing up on highways. Should I consider going for a diesel? the salesperson said that If i dont used diesel car on a regular basis the maintainence cost rises. Is it true? And also How much mileage would I get in petrol version? 2. The ride quality. Most of the reviews said that it really gets bumpy at high speeds and feel like we are riding a boat. It is that bad? Please help.
  8. One more query. When is Linea 1.6 expected to hit the Indian market ?
