Suzuki Swift would be the ideal choice as it's superior in all departments.

Ford Ikon or Ford fiesta will be better choice considering its performance ,space , utility and efficiency .

sir don't think more just go for swift ldi model,that costs just 487000.good milage .maruti cars are khara sona,means good resale value and repairless

Answer by Amrit 11 November 2008

swift is commonly driven car, u can see every where on roads. No doubt car is good but its too common among people. If you can wait then i20 is good car as hyundai crdi technology has proven track record. Else Ford fusio is also a good choice, excellent fuel efficiency, great space and comfirt, only draw back is poor resale value but if you are buying a new one u will atleat use it for 3-5 year, that justify this draw back. New indica vista also a good choice but its too plasticy inside.

i do agree with all suggestions mentnd above.Am a tour operator having houseboat and resort,i do have swift Ldi,Fusion,Verna,Lancer,skoda etcbut all of the above mentioned are mytaxi permit vehicles,in that am happy with swift and skoda,bcoz they dont fetch me much in maintanence and fueling,I have an Honda City,M800,i10 and my dad he is an Nri having Bmw7 series,MBenz 320,Honda civic and an Lexus Fwd,allthe above are Owners permit.Petrol is on time investment 4 low km drivers,less u just wait 4 a month or two c the lastest and take i20
