Today, there are many basic necessities that should be considered while buying a new car. First you need to look for the fuel efficiency because that plays an integral role in the entire life of the car. If you choose a fuel-efficient car then you'll have lower fuel bills and higher depreciation value. After that you can look for the road stability, power, performance and popularity. Style and interior adornments offer a comfortable ride but that should be a second priority.

This depends a lot on the segment you are interested in. To me in the C+ segment these will be

1. Good service network

2. Smooth engine & drive train with decent economy

3. Climate control

4. Rear Discs

5, Projector / HID lamps

My priorities are:

1. Good service network and brand image.

2. Value for money.

3. Reliability.

4. Practicality.

5. A mix of performance and Fuel efficiency.

6. Atleast a reasonable boot space. Should not be as low as Swift or A Star.

7. Resale Value.

8. Basic features like Power steering and AC are a must.

I presently own a Wagon R and SX4 and both the cars are good for their purpose. Wagon R is the most practical car to use in city while SX4 is a fun to drive car with good road presence.
