Re: Comparison Between Hatchbacks v/s Sedans
Do you even understand the purpose of this topic? I will repeat it for you -
Suppose a person has 8 Lacs, should he buy a premium hatch (if he does not require the boot) or should he buy a budget sedan (since sedans are good for status)?
Again, I would say that I don't give damn about societal norms, so forget about thing like status. Lets focus of practical issue -
A hatch can't take more bags, lacks rear space, lack of comfort for all the passengers. The only place where hatch scores is for parking in tiny spaces.
And in older post, you have yourself said that 8L hatch is not the person's 1st car, to which I agreed completely. If this is the case, then there is no point is debating for the reason that for tiny parking spaces or wifey the person will use premium hatch, but for regular rides, it will be sedan.
You are again & again comparing high end sedans with cheaper hatches, which is not fair.
And you are not considering the cost of production & taxes which is more in sedan than hatch which results in less features for sedan as the basic cost of production itself is more. Why are you ignoring this fact ? Not to forget the higher cc engines sedans require.
Hatchbacks are not designed for the sethjis to sit in the rear seat.
. Loved this but problem arises when Sethji too wants to drive. Now compare, hatch or sedan ? It will again be sedan.
Correction. I am comparing Verito & Dzire with Polo, Swift, Punto, etc.
Again A grade hatch with B grade sedan.
Compare Dzire with swift, Polo with Vento, Punto with Linea & Verito with alto/wagon-R.
I have clearly mentioned that a maxi hatch is bought by someone who has the money to buy a sedan but still buys a hatch because it suffices is needs. Alto & Wagon R is not a maxi hatch.
Partially true coz maxi hatch is bought by someone who already owns either a sedan or atleast a UV. In my society I seen following combinations -
i20 & Cruze; Altis & i10; Jazz & Accord; swift & endy etc.
The guys who have Mercs, BMWs don't own a single hatch & only one of them has a SUV - Pajero.
Correct. Because it falls in the same price range.
Cost of production of sedan is more.
It wont have the boot - correct.
It wont have the comfort - not necessary.
Then why not buy rickshaw ? Don't know why people buy cars which they don't like for first place. And if comfort is lacking in premium hatch, why waste money on them ? Better buy entry level hatches only.
Both i20 & Punto is more comfortable than the Dzire.
i20 maybe at par but punto surely not.
Hatches are bought by people who would mostly occupy only the front seats. Please understand the intended purpose also.
OK. But when did we disagree to this ?
Note that we are taking about complete package
& not partial advs/disadvs.
DUDE, in that case, you know nothing about the Scorpio, so just let it be. No point arguing endlessly about something you are not totally aware of...
Look, I don't buy what car makers say. Tomorrow if M & M says scorpio to be hovercraft, some may buy that theory as it may drive on/near the beach; but I won't.
Some examples -
Scorpio is a truck because it has a pick up truck version.
Safari is an SUV because it's rear seats are comfortable.
Ridiculous! Ignorance is bliss!
I thought this is sedan vs hatch. Now from where the hell scorpio came back ? I am feeling being Amir Khan of Ghajini now, which post goes where.....no idea
And yes, I have never said safari to be true SUV. Just see the previous posts.
That seems a cool idea Iron Rock. I really wish MODS allow us to open such a thread. It would be awesome!
And I can already predict some great comparos there. And I am sure the cycle would win in the poll too!
Yes, I am sure those members based in UP will surely vote for cycle
Request you to debate about hatch, sedan & SUV in respective thread. It gets quite confused.
Seems some people here have scor-phobia
