Purpose of this thread is to find a Diesel car with lowest ownership cost in today's market situation and the car with maximum features.
Punto is above 6L and so does the other cars.
My intention is to 'FIND' a diesel hatchback with lower on-road price and which gives me Maximum (rather at lest PS,AC,PW(front))
There is no point in stretching budget, so please don't suggest how punto is good or xyz is good if we can stretch budget.
Just consider title of this thread and then suggest.
Otherwise there are more than 10 threads discussing diesel hatch so no point in discussing same points again and again.
Punto Active and Dynamic are below 6 lakh

Even Emotion pack is few thousands above 6LKS if negotiated little hard.
I know this, but they are costlier than Beat,eV2, Figo by 70-80k which is not less amount.

Can we exclude Beat as it is 1 ltr

I think comparison should be apple to apple.

Let us wait for some more players to enter in this segment.

I do not think we should exclude beat to make a parity. Because a car is a car and beat is fulfilling almost all the requirements of a car. Engine capacity is nothing to do with the thread title.

Please correct me if I am wrong. [:)]

Yes, spot on

ev2 may be less costlier than Punto active but i don't think beat and Figo is less costlier (70-80K) than Punto active.
I have punto price list with me updated 16Mar2011
Active is 5.81 OnRoad in pune - I think currently they have around 50k discount (not sure) so it will be 5.30 (approx. after discount)
So still looks like 30 to 40k extra than Beat/Figo/eV2

Also this is price (ex showroom pune) form carwale - now check the difference
Punto Active: 5,26,174
Figo LXi: 4,67,312
eV2 LS: 4,55,417
Beat PS: 4,35,694

hyderabad-city of exotics:)
figo should be budget diesel hatch with max features,as tilt steering,alloys and fogs had been added to titanium which costs 40K more than the base punto active[;)]
though we get an old mill under hood but its proven in fiesta for its efficiency & reliability.no steering mounted controls[frustration] may be a deal break!!

Welcome aboard TATAaventador.

Either way buyers are also getting cheap car, aren't they [:)]. Please understand not every buyer is an enthusiast or drive like one. Still the figure or percentage is higher in India wherein, people buy cars to fulfill their commutation needs rather fun.

Please spare sometime and introduce yourself here (Introductions). We would like to know more about you. [:)]
