Hi Mayur,
If ur gonna use the car on self-drive then the front seats are heaven (is husd kno -- im 6'3 myself and drive a VDI)....
If ur gonna hv a driver and sit at the back then make sure u get a driver who is dhort in height...if ur front seat goes ahead then back leg space is gud....if front seat is pushed all the way back then only a 5'4 -- 5'5 person can sit in the backseat......

MAintenance & Spares is nevr a worry wid maruti.....NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!!!!

My VDI gives about 14 kmpl....VXI shud give u about 14-15.....!!!!!!!

Check out the Linea also if u want.....its also an option...!!!!!

CHEERS and njoy ur decision....!!!!

Hi Mayur, for your height. The best car ever I advise is just Mistubishi Lancer. Go and check every car, and see the differenct and e-mail me if I am wrong. Only Lancer can satisfies you. Second option will be Manza.

Hey Mayur,
I am not sure about what your basic requirements are , but Desire petrol version would make sense only if you will be using the car for 4-5 years atleast. The resale value for Desire petrol is bad, also this car is a good performer and certainly not as excellent as BALENO or Honda City. My personal suggestion would be go for used Honda City(dolphin shape). You can get a mint condition car(as good as new) around 5.5-6 here in Maharashtra. FE highway 17+, city 14+, and what more should I say about Honda.
If you are obsessed with new cars, think of Manza, Accent(Executive), Aveo.
Sorry to say but Desire petrol does not make a whole lot of sense to me.

For your height I would suggest you go in for the Manza. I am about the same height as you. In the Manza you will have excellent clearance for your head, good legroom, and a very comfortable car overall. Moreover, the fully loaded version is cheaper than the Dzire.
A petrol Dzire does not have the resale value you would expect.

u wont get it before dec as bookings are heavy. also diesel is having less waiting at ND dont know about u r area. u wont get a better deal at this price. re leg space only kids can be seated behind the drv seat for a person of u r ht. re spares honda is nearly double as to maruti and tata diesel is anyway expensive to maintain... had a bad exp with previous tata

Expert`s comment:

Maruti Suzuki Dzire is a good selection for its proven performance and maintenance costs.You can expect mileage of around 14KMPL on averge. As mentioned by Prateek front seating driver or co driver would be best suited for comfort of long drives.
