  1. The Ertiga looks more spacious and better looking. Just like the Swift and Dzire outsells the Brio and Amaze by a long way, the Ertiga too is going to outsell the Mobilio. Like one of the posters above said, it would have been much better if it was based on the Jazz. But then, Honda may not be able to price it at Ertiga Levels.
  2. I have used two Swifts in the last 8 years. A Swift Vxi followed by a Swift Zxi. The usage of my cars are similar to yours (my wife uses them mostly). I have no hesitation in recommending a Swift petrol version. The Swift Zxi should be the car for you.
  3. Looks much better than the present model. If only they would bring it out with a more powerful diesel (1.8 ltr or so).
  4. Excellent car, but will Honda be able to price it like Maruti?
  5. IMO this car is not likely to find many takers at this price which is Rs 1.72 lacs over the top end normal Polo. The price is quite close to the Honda City or the Hyundai verna.
  6. If Tata doesn't do something about new product launches soon, they wont have any cars to put these engines in. Their sales has been falling month after month. From No 2 position they have slipped to No 5. And with Honda becoming aggressive with diesel engines, very soon they will be No 6 in the Indian market.
  7. I suggest you shortlist about 3 cars and take Test Drives. After that it will be easy to take a decision. Regarding Ecosport, I dont think even the base version diesel will be priced in the 7 lac range.
  8. I would suggest the SWIFT Diesel. The best overall package in this segment, especially since its mostly single driven and rear seat space is not such a big issue. The VDi version would fit right into your budget. If you can stretch your budget go for the ZDi.
  9. Tata needed to bring in at least a top end version with Power steering option. Hardly anyone these days like to drive without it and would have gone a long way in improving the image of the Nano.
  10. Tata needs to do a proper facelift on the Aria and give it a SUV look makeover. The facelift should be such that even a layman should look at the car and say 'Wow New SUV' instead of asking 'Whats new? Just changing the head lamps and tail lamps will not do the job for them. One hopes that this is only an interim refresh and real facelift will come soon.
  11. Whatever Tata wants to do with the Aria, they better do it fast. In February 2013, they sold just 4 Arias across India. They might as well wind up this MUV.
  12. I dont think this is an authentic news. After all why should Tata do a complete re-design and take the help of JLR on an outdated old platform on which the Sumo is made. Would have made more sense to revamp vehicles like Safari Storme or the Aria, which are based are the much more modern X2 platform, both of which could do with better designed exteriors.
  13. Wow!! This looks better than some of our cars. Maybe I will have to buy a farm to have an excuse for buying this
