I currently own a 7 year old Santro Xing which is still going strong. As I have owned a Maruti 800 & now santro I need to upgrade to a sedan now.
Monthly Running - 500 - 1000 kms (includes city,& rough roads to my farm house + 500 kms of highway driving ) so will go for petrol.
Need space for 5 adults, rear space must be comfortable as my parents are 60+
Good luggage space.
i have shortlisted four cars by preference
Honda City - I liked the car very much after TD but my only concern is the ground clearance as I will be traveling to my farm house where there are almost no roads. Though the distance is only a few kms still its a concern for me. My santro never gave such problems. Linea
- have to still TD but my friend has it, it looks big & spacious, but what about Fiat's ASS
I may keep the car for 5 years. Maruti Sx4
- The only thing I liked about sx4 is the GC & Maruti's ASS
. But it is a dated car when compared to Linea or others. Ford Ecosport
- I also considered Ford ecosport but should I go for petrol or diesel. Ford Fiesta Classic
- Superb handling have driven my friends car many times & simply love the way it handles. But will the Ford discontinue this model & if so what about spare parts availability.
I plan to buy the car in October as there could be some discounts on Dasara & Diwali as the road in bangalore id very high which increases the on road price.
Thanks in advance
