  • You must go for Palio NV 1.2 elx, its fully loaded version and you can get 2004-2005 model in your budget. Its good car if your daily runing is less. Feature which you will get in this car you cant get in any other car like Santro, Zen, Indica xeta etc etc. You can directly compare this car with swift or ford fusion, and if you buy any of these two cars it will cost you around 2.75 to 3.5 lacs. So better go for Palio NV 1.2 elx.

  • Expert Hi
    For your requirments Palio is a good option . Santro is one to consider for better mileage and maintenance and cost effectiveness..
    Answer by Shiva Shankar on Nov 8, 2008

  • Dont buy expensive and will be discontinued soon,Best option is a used santro zipplus or santro xing.around 2004 model will be available for that price.santro is a superb trouble free car,with zero maintainence,the epsilon engine is one of the finest ever made.Parts are cheap as the car has been made in huge quantities in the past 10 years in India.moreover the car always has good resale value in secondhand car market.dont buy from brokers keep seeing in papers automobiles for sale in your city.You may come across some good car owned by a doctor lawyer etc in your city.go for one owner car,preferably see if log book is there and mainteined by company workshop

  • Dear mr. Balamurgan

    My suggestion is to go in any Maruthi branded Company maintained, single owner prefreabbley lady driven above the model of 2005.,avoid brokers and post your query in web where you can acquire more details and the most important plese prefer only petrol used cars but not gas as the petrol used cars is less maintained.

    Answer by Ashu Khatri on Nov 10, 2008

  • Mr. Balamurugan,

    It is easy for anyone to give advise as it wont cost anything. Can you imagine I just posted a question for myself and giving you an advise. Two lakh is a decent budget to buy a new Maruti Car. I would suggest you to get finance for remaining money if you cannot afford more. It is close to year end. Wait for one more month and all car dealers will give you huge discounts. Visit one of the Maruti/Hyundai Showroom after 15th Decenber and get some huge discounts plus goodies with your new car. Go for a Maruti 800 your annual maintance cost is almost nothing. Just put petrol and enjoy the ride. If you go for a Santro the maintance is a bit high but the mileage is lower than Maruti 800. I have owned 5 Cars and only Maruti 800 has never upset my monthly budget. If you have limitations about your monthly budget then Maruti800 is the best car. Keep it for long time if you are buying it in december..
    Answer by Zam on Nov 10, 2008

  • Dear mr. Bala,
    All small cars serve the same purpose which M-800 does if itz not a skoda fabia ! just go for this little wonder called 800 and have a nice , trouble free driving experience. if u have have some extra money get it fitted with alloy wheels and a power steering
    and have fun. im also from academics and can understand ur need and i know u wud hate spending time in motor workshops ,so just rely on me and take its Uniq variant, plus get its bumpers painted in body colour and stay afloat.
