I am a Fiat Punto Lover and searching for a petrol hatchback for long time.
Why petrol : Cheaper to maintain in long run, smooth, lower investment
Why Hatchback: Low cost, my use will be low : 500 - 800 KM / month (MAX.)
But Punto 1.2 has only ONE issue : the very slow pickup. And I am not ok with that.
Punto 1.4 is out of my reach .
My reach : 6 - 6.5 L MAX.
So I started looking for other options in petrol including sedans!
But nothing matching my/our check list.
Either we like the car but out of my reach or we donot simply like the car.that's all.
Finally just few days ago visited Mahandra showroom, near silkboard, in Bangalore. We checked Verito D4 but we are interested in G4 only. (Will take TD as soon as they can provide me a petrol version)
External : Classic Sadan,boxy. But I am OK with the looks.
Internal: Too simple, no fancy things, enen no tilt steering.
Comfort : Best in class. I never ever saw such comfort seating for 5 .never
build : Quite good. much better then maruti and hundai.
Driver's view is nice too. Boot is huge.
I see in this forum that a lot people ask for best petrol hachback.
My question is if I get this can in 6.25 L onroad in bangalore then why I will go for a small hatch back?
