Please my close friend is in dilemma of buying a car for highway use.
His current garage is
Tweaked palio mjd with new engine.
Lancer 2007 in mint condition
2015 xuv 500 AWD w10
He is mileage minded and also likes cars with solid build quality and hassle free ownership.
Currently palio returns 20 for highways with its awesome in gear performance , even my polo can't win it, but it lacks safety feature like abs
, on hard braking car takes a side which is a critical thing to take to account.
On the other side lancer with its streamlined body and highway stability, and low seating position, gives a comfortable long rides and can never feel a straining, but lacks in performance in gear and noisy engine and strains over 120 .
Returns a mileage of 16. On 120 speeds and 18 in 100 kmph speeds.
Xuv in other side gives a over all awesome performance and safety and stability but returns 12 kmpl , which is a point to think for single person drives.
So please help to find a apt car for 12l budget max. May exchange lancer on purchasing,
< 4.5 meters
Must be easy on city rides too
Solid build quality
Good seating position for long rides
Good rear seat space for bulk passengers
Good boot space for hardware materials to carry
Good efficient engine
120 kmph easy rider
Low road noise
Kitted with Automatic climate conrol,abs
, airbag,cruise control optional
