Accent and Ikon for 2.1 lakh?

Possible, but the year will be pretty old.
Advice: avoid

I agree. The reason why we cannt buy a sedan is the space for parking. Since I already have a hatch we have space only for another hatch. The budget is at 2.1L so it becomes all the more difficult to find a good tallboy with reasonable mileage.

Hi dude,

I think you can try searching for Fusion.
Its a best wagon where Egress and ingress is very easy. You can easily find right here in chennai.

The only problem is availability of spares. It would take some time. You can get some better deals.

Well, i have to agree that hyundai steering and gearbox are the best in its class (atleast in India). I have driven both Xing & i10. The steering is soo light and wonderful for city drives.

@Marun, thanks dude. let me also checkout fusion.

RSM, yeah nano is surely a good choice only after all their electric wiring and issues with them are sorted out, the cars getting fired across the nation is a bit scary, though not every nano but still i suggest no.
Look out of WagonR Lxi or Santro XL, both suits the bill perfectly.
I heard someone saying Fusion, yeah surely its the best of hatchback with space,ingress and outgress.But its much more on the maintenance factor compared to maruti and hyundai.

With Fusion, its going to be phased out soon, so not good option considering its maintenance.
Yes Nano's fire news was scary, but since Nano is so hyped all news becomes breaking news. These things happens with all the cars. Just check some accident threads in forums, and you can find so many cars are burning on the road.

yes RSM i do agree on your say but still i believe its always better to wait till the second model, or new edition nano launches, till then better opt for any of marutis or hyundai's.
And ford india had already phased out its fusion so why to invest in that model in anyways.

AMG, forgot to mention the budget, it is now aimed at between 3.75 - 4L. Do you know the offer price on Spark?
