I would advise 1 or 3 with AC . PS should not be mandatory as it will be driver driven.
Nano will be better because of its huge space inside your grand mom will not find any difficulty to get in and out.
But I am not much inclined towards nano due to its reliability issues.M800/Alto are much cheaper easier to repair.
Totally agree with a used non AC alto over a M800 . One thing more to keep in mind is that this car will be sold in max 2 years/ 10000km maybe even earlier . So an alto will have a much better resale value than a M800 ( which will be sold for peanuts )
About non power steering. According to me buying a car with Ac and power steering by paying 10k/15k extra maybe more sensible than buying one without PS. 1/2 years down the line when I go to sell the car very few ppl will consider buying a non PS equipped car ( even today that is true ) So I will recover my initial investment and the car will be much easier to sell.
What do you say ?
And about the ease of ingress/exit she has no problem in that area, she is only a little uncomfortable in getting in/out of higher vehicles like sumo/safari etc.
I was browsing OLX yesterday and i think I can also consider zen
because good cars seem to be available in 1L-1.2L range.
I'm not helpful here |
But Other than Nano in your list / available option, Isn't your Ritz (P) most suitable to your Grandma for easy In & Out considering her age ?
As well Engine refinement comparing to Used Nano.
As I said my father uses the car daily so not feasable
Ingress & egress will be difficult in M800/Alto. So, its better to go for Nano.
Reliability/ Repair/ Resale of a used nano is questionable.
And about the ease of ingress/exit my grandma has no problem in that area, she is only a little uncomfortable in getting in/out of higher vehicles like sumo/safari etc.
