  1. This car purchase hunt started around 3 months ago, when our beloved Ritz ( 2009 model ) started to give us niggles that makes me and my father annoyed, so when I was asking him that I want to make all these changes to Ritzy, he suggested that we get a new car for city running instead. I agreed instantly with him and we started our car hunt. Our budget was around 8 Lakhs Max. and we were looking at a compact car for city running. Options considered were : 1) Amaze 2) Etios 3) Dzire 4) XUV ( for brief while ) Amaze : Firstly coming to its test drive, well even before testing it, my father said that this is THE CAR to go for And when I drove it, I absolutely fell in love with it The Positives of Amaze were : 1) Beautiful Engine ( non-existent turbo lag as compared to DDis) 2) Looks cute 3) Good view of corners of road from inside the car 4) Compact so very easy to manouvre 5) Good Boot space for the size of the car 6) Rear seats were really comfortable and spacious 7) Priced really competitively as compared to the competition 8) Honda snob value 9) Low maintenance cost 10) Terrific mileage of 18-19 kmpl in city and 23-24 in highways the list may continue further but I may stop here Disadvantages of Amaze as I found were 1) Cabin shake when starting or Stopping the car 2) Dull Dashboard 3) Small fuel tank ( only 35L ) 4) Low seating position, might be slightly uncomfortable to get in/out Overall, I was pretty satisfied with what Amaze offered for the money it asked Next was Dzire, well it was a good car but my father said that this is a really common car nowadays and also the rear seat + Boot were cramped in comparison to Amaze so it went out Then we test drove Etios, it is a capable car no doubt, but I just could not digest that dashboard and the exterior looks of that car, so it was again out Lastly we tried our hand on XUV500 as well and were quite impressed with this car as an overall package, but for city running this car due to its dimensions, might be a pain to maintain and run. So long story cut short, we got our amazing cutie Cherry Red Amaze home and I am loving every moment with it, hopefully will share many fun travelogues and longer run experiences with this beast with you all ! 1 pic only right now, sorry for bad picture quality, when I get time ( soon ) I will post more and better pictures Thanks for taking time out, more to follow
  2. Amazing Amaze comes home

    Hi librankur, we got Diesel SMT Amaze home. Regarding the deal that I got was 7.6 L on road approx as compared to 7.8 quoted initially plus rear parking sensers and 2 other small accessories ( perfume and floor mats ) included in the package Yes Ritz is still pretty much around. It has been a working horse for us for last 5 years and I just love it, is an understatement, but as it has run over 63K, so it has started to show its age, especially due to the conditions it has to go through here in Delhi, small niggles do annoy me and my father as we like our car to be completely silent, so we decided to lessen the load on Ritz and got home a sister for her in the form of Amaze

    This pricing is a really optimistic one from chevrolet and it will be nothing more than a dud IMHO as fortuner is offered at similar territory and is a superior package

  13. advice on buying a new car

    for your running i would recommend you to go for a petrol car and you should look at verna fludic which is loaded with features and Hyundai A.S.S. is really reliable as well
  14. i would say that go for verna fludic as it comes loaded with features which honda city does not Honda city is a great car no doubtbut is no longer a VFM product as compared to competition IMO If you can wait a bit then check out on fiesta as well
