As the thread name suggests, I am on my way to book my first car. I do not have great budget and have locked it at 5lacs, the more I stretch the more financing cost I would have to bear :( (Has planned 4 initially but realized all my need might not be fulfilled in it and did not want to compromise on needs as would ideally like to keep this one for 3-4 years for sure). My basic requirements as per TAI
guidelines are posted below.
> Your Budget:
5 Lacs Max (do not want to stretch it significantly)
> New or Used:
> Your Location:
Noida / Ghaziabad
> Top Five Priorities:
Fuel Efficiency, Low running Cost, Low Maintenance Cost, Good space, Quick Service
> Monthly Running:
> Type of Fuel:
Not sure, open to Petrol/Diesel/CNG and any combination of them
> For What Purpose:
Regular Office Commute, Occasional Highway trip (not more than 2-3 times a quarter)
> Seating Capacity:
Ideally 2 but should be comfortable for 4 (All adult and well built and good height :) )
> Type of Segment:
Hatchback, I would love a Sedan but it won't come in this budget
I think Petrol/CNG would be ideal for my needs and Wagon R seems to be a good fit. However I am option to all options in terms of fuels and cars and through the help of valuable feedback I receive I shall make my decision.
I think it might help that I majorly would be using it around NCR but would have to make occasional vacation trip to nearby hills and pay visits to my relatives in Rajasthan and would like to keep this factor in consideration
I know I might not have posted all details I have in my mind and what you might need but I believe through this forum all would eventually come out and final decision would be met.
Request your suggestion and help guys.
Fingers Crossed and Excited !!!!
