I totally agree with you sir, but i know lot's of people who are true petrol head's but cannot travel with their whole family cos they own a hatchback, this will kind of give an option to such people.

Nowadays Local car providers/agents have stopped providing petrol cars. eg: In our co, we asked for a Honda city for hire for a single day two times in this month & both times they sent us a Diesel Altis at the price of Honda city hire charge!! We aren't complaining

16000 INR [surprise]for a mere 600 km to and fro is too much for a travel in Innova.

The maximum cost for fuel from Blr-Tirumala is 3600 in my hawk.

Btw I love to drive rather these packages.
