I am a new member to The Automotive India.My name is Ramdas and from kollam, kerala.
I am now planning to buy a diesel sedan and i have short listed verna and new city 2014 from vento,rapid,linea,sunny and fiesta.My priorities are good brand,VFM
,good looks on exterior as well interior,features,good safety,Low ASS
and maintenance cost,comfort seating,mileage and good resale.
In styling i love verna from front and rear but from back i loved the city.When comes to inside i loved the interiors of both the cars.I have a maximum budjet of only around 11lakhs (including tax and insurance).I have plans to look verna 1.4 EX and in city i am thinking of S(2nd) or SV. In city SV touch screen AC interface looks smart but i am worried about it's practicality in driving situations because i need to look that every times to control and it has chances to become fogy when uses continuously (finger prints and dust).
Verna 1.4 Ex model have fog lamps,turn indicators on ORVM,2 DIN Audio system with Cd player,climate control AC,DIS,parking sensors and camera,chrome front grille,audio and call controls in steering wheel.I also hears about about the soft suspension issue of verna, uncomfortable rear seats and very light steering in high speeds.Recently i saw a overdrive report
saying that 2014 verna comes with the rectified these issues.Verna 1.4 Ex comes around 10.6 lakhs here and have offers around 35000rs for diesel(january) and delivery will be available within one week.
When comes to City S or SV, It does not have parking camera,CD player,turn indicators on ORVM,steering mounted call controls,and have only painted front grille(S).I am six inch taller and i am comfortable with spacing of city.But also worried about engine sound inside cabin.The city on road price comes around 10.68 for S and 11.18 for SV here. Both models doesn't have any offers and delivery would take upto 40-60 days.
Please help me to pick up the best sedan out of these.
