Hey! The beat has climate control, doesn't it?
I'd suggest a young man like your friend goes in either for the Beat or the Swift. Both of these suffer from poor rear seats and boots though.
If he doesn't like the Beat, ask him to wait for the new swift.
i too would recommend the beat. chevy ASS might be a bit of a concern. but with their 1,00,000kms/3yrs free maintainance promise, it should not be a problem.
hyundai-GLS?? you mean the santro GLS?? i would not recommend the santro. its an age old car and may not be suitable for the youth IMO. but to be frank, santro has got no problems as such. its just that its been in the market for a while now. and rumours are heard that the production will be stopped soon.
