Warm greetings to all. Living in Jaipur (scorching heat man!
Firstly, please allow me to appreciate the TAI
community because it is astoundingly informative, fairly unbiased and really helpful for beginners like me.
So, my better half and me have decided to purchase our first brand new hatchback with priority emphasis on cost being "between 3.5 to 4.2lakhs
" around mid June 2013. I understand that this range tightens the noose on available options very strictly, but I have to live within that budget until things improve financially.
My usage is not exactly daily commute for work (and back i.e. total 20Kms), but just about family outings and the occasional 600-700Kms (total) highway trip after around 7-8 months.
Other priorities include (not in any order):
- Fuel Efficiency
- Low Maintenance Cost
- Resale value
- Possibly a 1000cc engine
- Comfortable seating interiors (interior looks secondary).
- Good an reliable air conditioner.
Oh! yes... would love to keep it in good condition for at least 5 or maybe 6 years as it will be one-person drive.
Any particular models I can shortlist as of now?
