If it's your first car and you haven't had much driving experience then buying brands like VW, FIAT, SKODA can give a little scratch on you pocket, it in case you mishandled the car.
Spare and service cost is much higher than other brands like MS, Hyundai, TATA etc.
In my opinion if its your first car, you can go for car like Ritz, Grand i10, Pulse, Micra. Some of these may have different drawbacks. A wise selection can give you long term happiness.
If you can spend a little more, you don't need to compromise on safety, as top end variants have ABS
Think before buying diesel:
If you are planning to go for diesel, keep in mind
- price tag is little higher as compared to same petrol head.
- Insurance price will be higher
- if you ODO doesn't tick that much
- may need to spend a little more on maintenance
My choice Ritz Zxi/ZDi, Pulse RxZ, Micra XV (CVT)
