I am a new member just joined 2 days back. Let me tell you a little about myself.
Presently I reside in Kolkata, doing service for my living. I enjoy driving long distances. The planning and research regarding the destination is equally exciting to me as the journey itself. I had the very best Maruti 800 from 1997 to 2010 which I exchanged for a swift LXI in 2010. Presently driving the same and enjoying it a lot.
Drove this little beauty to Benaras, Gopalpur on sea, Puri, Rajgir, Siliguri and dooars, Khajurah-Bandhabgarh-Jabalpur-Panchmari, Vizag,Digha, Daringbadi etc.Never faced any problem regarding the car in any of the trip.
Recently after reading regarding the different safety features and crash test reports of most of the indian cars, I understood that without a safe car it is a gross foolishness to undertake a long distance road trip specially with the kids.
Normally I always avoid driving more than 100 kmph as the speed increases one gets more engrossed on the road rather than enjoying the drive.So for me in a car good build quality and proven safety features are more important than the engine itself.Turbo lag and other high definition description of the engine really does not matter much to me.
For all these reasons I almost sorted out TATA ZEST as my next car.
But accidentally I came across the news that Ford India is also coming with a sub 4m. sedan based on Figo platform in June 2015 with 6 airbags, abs
, hill assist etc. The build quality of ford is also very good unlike Maruti.
I am writing here to get your views (specially the Zest owners) that is it worth waiting for Ford Aspire to launch or just go for Zest now.
Waiting for your valuable reply and suggestions.
