After i20 comes u have to wait for Fiat Punto , after punto comes u have to wait for Honda Jazz , in between u will have to splash out for maruthi ritz also .Hatchback market will be buzzing of choices around the same time next year.

i20, punto and jazz all will be out of my budget i think.

ritz may come in my budget but it will be launched in april. dont want to wait for that long there are very good discount going on i10 currently so if i decide on i10 then will buy this month itself.

in petrol i don't see any other option.

good choice... dont think you have to wait for the Ritz. dont think its gonna to be worth the wait.

anyways, let us know the color and discounts you got from the dealer. let us know you are buying the 1.1 or 1.2 kappa and which variant...

all the best !!!

First, car then think petrol. Don't look beyond Maruti and Hyundai. These two have all the ends covered for a first time car buyer. Narrow in on an A-Star or an i10 1.2, of the two the A-Star is short on rear/boot space. I think the i10 1.2 would suit you to a tee.

ok back finally sorry for delay. this sunday i am going for test drives and actually see the car, my friend will do the test drive as i cant drive now.

also i have included palio mjd in my list.

just saw an ad today in local newspaper for free palio checkup. and it list one dedicated fiat service center.

seems they are trying improve the service before linea launch.

i will go to service center and check service and parts availability thing.

i have one question to you experts, sooner or later fiat will stop palio, how it will affect parts availability ?

i know parts related to engine will be available coz of vista and swift, what about other things ?

will check today, currently i10 is on top of my list.

i have a friend working in hyundai sales/service. he told me that i10 has cable driven gear box, so if anything goes wrong whole gearbox need to be opened . also new gearbox is not reliable as old one .

how true is it ?

Thanks

- music system with 4 speakers (anyone have idea how is it ?).

- rear headrests.

- spoiler with HMSL.

- defogger

- and 2-3 other small features.

Thanks[/quote'] Hello Juststarted!

i10 is a very nice car and its great that you have made your mind to buy one!

Yes, if you can spare for few more bucks then sportz version definately worth it!..otherwise magna not bad at all, but it depends on you whether you really want these features or not!smiley1.gif
