Request your advice based on the following requirements:
1. Budget - maximum around 6 lakhs on road for a hatch

(Can be stretched if strongly recommended)
2. Location - Bangalore
3. Top 5 Prioriries - MIleage, cheap maintainence, budget, sturdy and comfortable
4. Monthly Running - around 1700 -2200kms
5. for what purpose: for the purpose of staff usage of an Organisation (staff pick up, office duties, airport pick up, etc)

7. Body type: 2 hatches and one entry sedan(even eeco can be considered)
8. Period:: We intend to keep for more than 6-7 years

Hatches:Tata Indica eV2 or Tata Vista TDI.
Sedan:Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire LDi.

Both were perfect choices. Having all 3 from TATA stable will fetch a decent discount during purchase. But I would prefer DZire over Indigo CS. Maruti with Italian heart is any day cheaper to maintan than Indian engineering.

Even you can consider 1 eV2 + 1 vista + 1 DZire

For your priorities on a budget, Indica eV2 and Indigo eCS are the best options.

Hatch: Indica eV2

Sedan: Indigo eCS
Manza base model (If you have important clients/customers to be picked up from Airport)
Tata Venture or Maruti Eeco if a van is OK for you.

If it's for the staff use i would say go ahead with the Indica eV2 and Indigio eCS. Dzire is a good option too but if you go ahead with Indigo and get all 3 cars from Tata then you might get a good discount, since you will be buying 3 cars.

Best advice +100. Why not add Hyundai accent LPG in the sedan list ?

FE will leave a big hole in his pocket with the sky rocketing Petrol & LPG price. Eeco is considered only because of M.A.S.S. and FE is acceptable for a 8 seater.

Considering your requirement i agree with Boss that all 3 vehicles from TATA stable will fetch a decent discount during purchase also they are cheaper to own and maintain.

So my vote goes for

Hatch: Indica eV2

Sedan: Indigo eCS

Best of luck for your search.
