Good choice with Rapid. Skoda's accessory prices are slashed from a long time now i guess 6 to 8 months back. They are making all the accessories in India and prices have reduced a lot. Skoda dealer used to show the printout comparing the prices before and after when i went there some time back.
Dont go for verna, check out any motoring magazines or sites for Verna's reviews and they tell u that it doesnt handle well after 100 kmph and the steering doesnt give much confidence. Vento and Rapid have both engines. But skoda claims to have done some tweaking on the Vento's engine. I am not sure of this though.
Sirji,We had an option to go for Classic Titanium Diesel,which is costing 9.38L in Hyderabad,Etios VX-D,which is costing about 9.5L in Hyderabad,Safari LX,which is costing 9.89L in Hyderabad,City S MT or V MT,which is costing 9.92L for S MT and 10.53L for V MT,Cedia Sports and 2012 Select,which is costing approx 9.81L for Sports and 10.58L for 2012 Select,Sunny XV Diesel,which is costing 10.72L in Hyderabad or Linea Emotion 2012,which is costing 11.17L in Hyderabad and after discounts,it would be about 10.8L.
If it will not work out,we shall be putting about 1 to 1.5L for Rapid,Vento or Verna.
Finally,we acquired Innova 2.5 D4D V7 2005 version in Silver Color.It had done 2,55,742 Km in 7 years.It is our company vehicle.Our company had bought Innova VX in August 2012.This vehicle is unused since they bought Innova.Went to Harsha Toyota for power window switch replacement.Swift will be used for some days and would be going for ANHC if our vitamin-m allows it.
Cedia/Civic both are exceptional cars with superb handling. I'd suggest you to search hard for a used cedia with low odo. This car depreciates as hell and still ages very well. Same goes for Civic too. Between the two, if we keep aside the moth-watering cockpit cabin of civic and it being a segment higher, I'd pick a cedia simply for it's cornering capabilities and the best suspension available in any sedan in that segment (maybe one segment higher too). T 2.0 ltr cedia engine is very refined coupled with a very linear power delivery makes it a superb highway cruiser and equivalently good within city limits.
