Your cofusion is UTILITY Vs LOOKS - One aspect has to be sacrificed - considering your monthly travel and hike in fuel prices and maintenance cost maruti Ritz would be good choice as price wise not much difference.
i10 sport kappa2 with vtvt technology would be another option as it has great looks as well as mileage of 15k/l on city roads.
Chevys BEAT can also be tried as cost is very less and mileage wise / looks and maintenance wise is effective.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 12 December 2010

Earliar, we always prefer Maruti cars cause of Brand Name, but after driving my friend's Hyundai car, we never look back to Maruti cars, cause the performance & after-sales service of Hyundai cars are great in any aspect, compare to Maruits. Every owner of Hyundai cars is satisfied with the performance of his cars. Marutis are poor in safty aspect, cause I was driving Maruti Zen at the speed of 60 KM, all of the sudden the dog came in front of the said car & hitted the car from front end, nothing happened to Dog, but destroyed the Bumper, Grill, AC condenser & AC gas of the said car, Which costed me more than 20 Thousand to repair the said car. Considering everything, my suggestion is opt for Hyundai I20, (HYUNDAI WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN).

I have a budget of 5 - 6 Lakhs. My monthly travel is around 1200 - 1500 K.M.
Please suggest which car should I go for - Petrol or Diesel? Which is the best car available considering Safety, Perfomance and looks?

I am confused between Ford Figo, Beat and Tata manza.

Please advice.

go for diesel. forrd figo diesel.

Answer by Mantra 04 April 2011

For a rate of around 1000-1200km/month, diesel makes more sense considering the present fuel costs.
I'd similar sort of confusion, between i10 and i20. Ritz was one of the contenders, but my wife opposed a lot for its looks. Also I heard that i20 feels a little underpowered. In city, due to lack of sufficient power in 2nd gear, one needs to switch to 1st giving a hit to the mileage. However, according to mechanics at Hyundai, one can expect above 15 on highways.
But if you are ok with looks of Ritz then, its a nice car.

Answer by Rakesh 04 April 2011

i agree with rakesh, though i own diesel and its pulling power is good but i usually get on my hand on petrol i20 too of my friend. the pulling power in i20 in 2nd gear is not very good and one needs to go even beyond 2000rpm to pull.
however as i said go for diesel, according to your budget you can with figo diesel.

Answer by Mantra 04 April 2011

I own a Ritz and have done nearly 14500 kms in it. It is a wonderful car and handles very well. I would suggest Ritz any time as these have a higher resale value, service net work and more over better interior space than the i20.
