In my opinion go for Honda City
Out of five short listed vehicles-
Optra: very comfortable and fun to drive but Maintenance is a costly affair, real costly affair.
Accent: inconsistent and irritable HMIL ASC. I own a Hyundai and its my personal experience you can get your car serviced but they can not rectify your single complaint, this is my experience of 4 different ASC in 3 different states. In addition to this as Hyundai keeps on changing cars very frequently, it gets difficult to get spares (same happened with old generation Accent).
Tata Manza and Lancer: forget about resale. Manza got Public Cab Image and Lancer is real good to drive awesome vehicle but very low resale and pretty costly maintenance.
Go for Honda City
, fun to drive, easy to maintain, spares are always available even today for HC1, from both authorised service centre and off market, good resale compared to other vehicles you choosed.
Do look out for Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, they are offering heavy discounts plus addition 30k on buy back for old Maruti Suzuki Cars.
All the very best and keep us posted about what and how you planned further.
