since your monthly usage is just 700 kms which makes around 25 km\ day go for a petrol.
and i will recommend going for the brio. its new , it has honda's finest engines and a good VFM for the quality you get. sudeep himself has a brio , for more details you can check his as well as other brio threads.
have you asked for the prices of both the cars and the model you are considering ? please post that as well.
I have quoted my query in a different way in this forum. But dear all TAI members.. I will explain what exactly going on. first of all i wil say abt me.
I am working in a rotation wise job 42/42 ON/OFF. I am not an expert driver. i haven't owned a car yet. but i am facing lot of difficulties with out a car. All of my friends have cars, and they are expert drivers. Now I am also planned to take a car. I booked swift Vdi. this is happen because one of my friends he is an expert driver and has Santro xing, he recommenced to me to book swift. I told him tht i don't have much running, as 42 days i will be in continuous duty. but he is telling that if you own a car u will start run and run.. i have a small family total 5 persons included.
my main purpose is to go shopping, family trips like max 200 km round. sometimes hospital etc. But my friend telling me that petrol prize is increasing and if u take swift it is 1.3L, very good pulling etc. etc. I asked him if i kept my swift without using 42 days, will the battery be damaged? he told no problem, just start and raise.he is telling all Hundai cars are very stiff body which is good for bad roads only, swift is ok for you like wise. Also he told that the small car producing by huge companies like toyoto honda etc are not good cars.
Actually I don't know what type of car should i use, but I need a car that's what I know. my budget is 6.5Lk. Please recommend for me guys....
