So I am Aakash from Hyderabad.I live with my parents and grandparents here.
We are going to take a car now.The Budget is Under 12 Lakhs.
Since My Father will be using the car for 3500-4500 kms per Month it had to be a diesel and we will be using it for 2 years only.
So the prime factors are :-
I got confirmed that it should be a sedan or a SUV/MUV by the usage.
Please Comment on which car should we buy and which variant of it?
The Points to be noted :
-Car will be driven by my Dad (50 Yrs)
-It will be used on State Highways(2 Lane Metalled) and Some Potty Roads in Andhra Pradesh near Vijayawada.
-Mostly the car will have 1/2 persons on board for 70% time and 3-5 for the rest.
-I have keen Interest in cars and been in and around it for 5 years now.I Track and Check out every launch.
-Will take the car in a Month. Needed Urgently!
We have a Honda City 2005 and Alto 2005, 2 Scorpios (2006 & 09),Fusion (Don't Remember year) so have a diversified experience.
Cannot extend the budget since There are other investments going on.
Cars Viewed :-
VENTO :- Trendline too basic , Highline too pricy for Features. Enquired the dealer he says Comfortline has been launched and deliveries will begin in March itself. It has got Electric ORVMS,Old Vento Music System,Rear Arm Rest,Central Locking etc. Pricier than the TL by 40k. OTR is 10.61 + 20 K for Accessories, Total - 10.81 L
Fiat Linea Emotion :- Fully Loaded and Nice, 10.99L OTR - 30K Disc.
Mahindra Xylo :- E8 ABS
MUV,Feature Rich 10.75 OTR + 40 K Accessories.
These three are the final contenders as per now as I have ruled all others out due to reasons.U can still convince me On other models also as I have no Offense against any car.
Waiting need to finalize before 15th March.
