Cars Q&A

Question
To Mr. Shiv Shanker Sir, I have serious inquiry about buying new car which have confused my mind from last 3 months. At present I have Swift Petrol which has done 25000km in last 3.5 years. I belong to Jodhpur city (Rajasthan) & now petrol prices have reached upto Rs 60/-. Swift gives me an average of 11kmpl in city, which has tensed my mind to switch to diesel car. My 1st confusion, should I stick to petrol cars or go for diesel. Also, I will be needing entry level sedan car- Price Band - 5.50lacs to 6.50lacs. As December month has gave lots & lots of discounts on all cars, So I short Listed these cars :-- 1. In diesel - I prefer to go for - Ford Feista (Tested & Success story of ford in india), Tata Indigo E-CS (As I am surprised to c that this car give 20+ average). 2. If in any car I would go for petrol car then - I think Etios would be best choice. I wish to rec. express comments & suggestion from you. My First query - should I go for petrol or diesel. If any of above, which is Best Car (Giving in mind - low maintenance, easy service & good resale value after 5 years of use).. Also is Dec. month is best to buy new cars, keeping in mind heavy bumper discounts from manufacturers. Regards Vimal

Maruti Swift (Diesel) is best car

Answer by Anil Patil 12 December 2010

I Think you can for the Toyota Etios as it offers more value for money, decent mileage, good service and low maintenance.

Swift diesel is good but doesnt seem to work on your case. Toyota commands better brand value and is more reliable.

Hi,
Considering that the present car is not much used and done only 25K KM, the same can be used for few more years. However considering you are looking for selling it and going for new car, diesel version Ford Fiesta isa good choice for its proven performance and excellent mileage.
