Been doing a lot of reading. below are my requirements: Budget
: 5 lacs - Max 5.5 lacs New or Used
: new Your Location
: Mumbai/Thane Top Five Priorities
: CNG, Fuel Economy, Comfort, Maintenance, Looks Monthly Running
: (Eg: 800 - 1,000 Kms) Type of Fuel
: CNG For What Purpose
: Daily office use 35kms to and fro + occasional long weekend drives
Seating Capacity: 4 Type of Segment
1) Wagon R (LXI CNG) - no brainer but dont like the looks (no offence please)
2) Hyundai i10 (1.1 - Sports) - my preference Concerns with i10
- not so good feedback on mileage, not sure if they are to do with the 1.1 engine or 1.2 engine. For now oly 1.1 is available
2) Dealer fitted CNG
: although the company warranty will remain, but what abou the rear shock absorbers? will they be able to bear the weight when fully loaded with 4-5 passengers. Wagon R provides a different type of suspention on the CNG model.
3) Availablity and value
- with the advent of grand i10, will Hyundai discontinue i10? they have already removed the i10 Asta, 1.2 and AT models from the i10 lineup. only available are 1.1 in Era, Magna & Sports
There are limited choices in CNG, by default its Wagon R, but dont like the looks a bit (no offence please).
The other alternative is Hyundai i10 (1.1) where company warranty would be honoured.
I am more inclined towards i10, but somehow not finding enough reviews of its performance. Also i have read about concerns about its mileage, not sure if its with the 1.1 engine or with the 1.2 engine which is now discontinued in i10.
