Re: Need a New Car Under 20 Lakh Budget.

Music_Swift you are looking at a very wide spectrum with that budget and limited requirement details, i suggest you post your requirements in a little bit more details and consider your priorities again.
e.g:- one of my question would be at 35k annual running wouldnt you want a fuel efficient car as well ?
Please highlight your priorities considering all factors, then may be the list will be shorter and the advices a little more precise.[:)]

@Music_Swift:

I guess you have checked my VW Vento ownership review. Considering your budgets, no need to mention about ABS, airbags etc. All should fit in automatically for your budget.

Some tips.
  • First make a decision on Sedan OR SUV
  • Automatic OR Manual

If you are NOT concerned of your vehicle under body getting damaged due to bad roads, high humps, ground clearance then blindly choose Chevi CRUZE. It's an absolute beauty and you will enjoy the cockpit interiors. The newer version has refinements and even city ride is smoother now.

If you need better ground clearance & need not worry about road conditions, you can definitely add 10-15% additional budget and go for Toyota Fortuner. I would suggest not to go for XUV even though its value for money.

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport - you can also check this.

Once you ride on your sedan and you will feel the pain buddy [frustration] when car hits the bumps, bad roads [frustration].

Pajero Sport-It is expensive in my budget.My budget is under 20L.

Vento makes me perfect sense IMO.About Cruze,All are complaining about brake pads and resale value.Verna also makes sense IMO.But,we need bigger vehicle than Swift.

Verna - ride handling is very poor and you can feel it even at 90KM speeds.

Cruze - did you check the facelift one's?

Then you can fix for Vento-Highline. Beautiful car!

Don't think about resale value of the car, rather think about the comfortableness the vehicle will give you for 5 yrs.

Already we sat in Old Verna and New Verna many times.I felt New Verna better than Old Verna.BTW,Hyundai had changed the settings of suspension to Fluidic Verna.

Re: Need a New Car Under 20 Lakh Budget.

About XUV500-The waiting period at Hyderabad seems to be much.The waiting is 3-6 months on any variant and color.OTR in Hyderabad is 16.5L.

Important note-This car is used by my father as his daily use.

P.S-My 100th post.

Re: Need a New Car Under 20 Lakh Budget.

So,this is the points of Sedans.

The Diesel Sedans,which we are considering are:

1.Vento HL 2012 Diesel-12.2L,I guess due to cut in prices
2.Sunny XV Diesel-10.7L
3.Verna SX 2 A/B or 6 A/B Diesel-11.9L for 2 A/B and 12.7L for 6 A/B
4.Linea Emotion 2012 Diesel-11.07L
5.Rapid Elegance Diesel-11.5L

Some High Points:

1.Sunny is first cheaper than all Sedans.
2.Rapid and Vento share same engine.
3.Vento feels best after new updates.
4.Linea had more GC.It has 185mm.Plus,Fiat is offering Free Insurance and Free RSA on Linea.
5.Verna is most expensive car in this segment.But,it is worth the penny.

The Diesel Sedans which I didn't considered:

1.Fiesta 2012-Due to high price.
2.SX4-No more Maruti now.
3.Scala-Too pricey and Sunny is better than Scala.

Value For Money Place for Considered Vehicles:

1.Nissan Sunny XV-First
2.Fiat Linea Emotion-Second
3.Skoda Rapid Elegance-Third
4.VW Vento HL-Fourth
5.Verna SX 2 A/B-Fifth
6.Verna SX 6 A/B-Sixth

My First Choice of Diesel Sedans:

1.Verna
2.Vento
3.Rapid
4.Linea
5.Sunny

So,it is the points for Diesel Sedans.

Finally,it is Rapid Elegance-Booking in January 2013.

So,finally decided to go for Rapid Elegance[clap].Will be booking on January 2013.The decision was taken by my father.Because,when he sat in his friend's Rapid for 2 to 3 times,he was impressed with its comfort,ride after sitting in the Car[thumbsup]

Why we are booking Rapid in January 2013 because,

1.It will be fresh and we booked our Swift same time due to 2010 starting
2.Our Money will be present in the same time and
3.We will be arranging our finances at that time.


Before Rapid,we are considering once more Verna SX with 2 A/B and Vento HL Diesel 2012.

My father's choice was already Rapid,but we are considering once more Verna and Vento before booking Rapid.
