Vow, beautifully put! Monopoly stricken- I like the term. Yeah, now, even I am contemplating if I have to 'upgrade' from the Micra, what would it have to be ?
The GT TSI is very tempting, but I dread the thought of having my parents entering and alighting the car.
The Figo looks good on paper with 110BHP et al, but somehow still feels slightly on the lower side even compared to Micra in terms of cabin quality.
The Baleno petrol manual feels sprightly and the cabin is extra -generous , but that would be just a new car for the sake of it, compared to Micra. Same goes for the CVT Jazz.
The Abarth Punto is a beast, but not sure what to do with it during the regular commute chaos.
