Cars Q&A

I want to replace my Indica Turbo 2006 with a new Swift Dzire Lxi.... I am unable decide on it. What is your advice. I need to travel outstation at least once a month. Someone advised me that Bollero may be a better option as maintance of Dzire will be on higher side. Incase I opt for Dzire should I go for Vxi instead of Lxi?

Dezire is always desirable against Indica n Bolero dear. But u can also consider other diesal sedans like Ford or Chevelet???

Sir,Dzire is a very good car and one of the best in it,s segment if not best.Swift engine is also turbo as per Mr.Shiva.If you travel too much i.e. 50KM per day, then you should opt. for diesel or else petrol will better suit you. As per as opting for LXI or Vxi, I will suggest you to opt. for LXI and then convert it to ZXI . This will save you lot of money but simultaneously enjoying all facilities of Zxi. For example, you can install Indian Automobile association authorized Central Locking system or install high end Sony Explode music system with even LCD monitor .Most of the items, you should install in either authorized dealer or most reliable auto shop.You can even change your door handle also to confuse others as door handle in Vxi or Zxi is same to the colour of the car where as Lxi or Ldi is black colour.Registration or insurance cost will be much less for Lxi or Ldi model as cost depends on Ex-show Room price.

Expert`s comment:

For upgrading purpose from hatchback to sedan.Seift Dzire is a good option for proven performance and spacious interiros.The difference in variants lies in features available hence you can decide based on budget range.
As far as Bolero is concerned, its seletion between MUV and sedan. MUV has advantage of better space and increased number of passangers where as sedan limited to 5 seats.Hence if you are looking usage for occasional higher number passangers then going for Bolero is justifiable.It also has advantage of a disel vehicle.

I wish to thank each one of you for your very specific answers!
Especial thanks to Mr.Partha for very helpful tips on upgrading and savings! Mr. Partha since you are using Dzire(I think Diesel?), I will go for Petrol Lxi. some people commented this car develops certain problems because suspensions etc are basically that of Swift .As result of increased weight and length Swift(which is smaller & lighter) suspension is insufficient.
Also, I heard warranty is affected if we modify the car.5
