This is my first post in TAI
I currently own a Maruti 800 AC (2005) model.
I'm planning to buy a new 8 seater car in mid 2012.
between xylo e6 and scorpio Lx & SLE BS4 models which are near to my budget.
It would be very kind of you if you can guide me in making a firm decision on which car to buy. If you think any other car than those which I have mentioned above is/are good enough then pls let me know about it. My budget and requirements: Your Budget:
MaX 8. Your Location:
Mumbai. Top 5 Priorities:
1. AC should be good enough to keep 3rd row users cool
2. Power Steering & Power Windows
3. 3 user seat in middle row
4. Central locking
6. Comfortable for continuous travel for about 6 hrs (after reading 'Avindu's" post on his trip to Leh/Ladakh (under section The Voyage Junction) i am more inclined to go for scorpio, by seeing the power, comfort and value it gives). I had read several good & bad reviews of xylo. Of the bad reviews of xylo which i did not liked the most is rattling sound of middle section seats after 1 year. I dont like the design of it as well to be very frank. Monthly Running:
700kms. In last 5.5 years my M800 has travelled 52000 kms For Which Purpose:

Family Trips (In Maharashtra & Gujarat 2 times in a quarter which are within 1000kms distance oneway)
