Go for SWIFT DEZIRE. It's for performance and good mileage too. Also Good value for money and excellent Maruti Service Backup. It's also good vehicle for self drive. But rear seat space is little conjusted.

If you like to drive or if you're a self drive option, then GO blindly for FIAT LINEA. It's a excellent car from Fiat and good performar also. Generally Fiat vehicles are made to drive selfly safetyly.

Both are good option.

Have a good luck.

Expert`s comment:

Even though linea is little above the budget range mentioned, We recommend for the same for its good features and reliability combined with good style.

Go for Indigo is a real value for money car and you will be saving a lot of money too.Its just about Rs.4 lakhs and 70 thousand on road.Why waste another lakh for buying other cars like Dzire and Fiesta?This car will comfortably carry you for at least 5 years !!

Hi Sam,
my opinion on pros & cons:
Linea - excellent car, but over your budget
Ikon diesel - diesel version in Ikon is new, but Ford is known for higher maintenance cost in terms of cost of spares
Palio - though being sold thru Tata dealership, Fiat has not really been able to make it in the market - resell value will be definitely less
Swift Dzire - the swift diesel version is more successful than the dzire version, but diesel has never been Maruti's core competency area.
Tatas - the only manufacturer boasting of diesel engines speciality. Indigo CS is good value for money, but the diky space is slightly lesser than the other manufacturers - u can also opt for Indigo if diky space is not a constraint for you. Maintenance cost is also minimal. I own a 4 yr old Indigo LX - if u follow manufacturer's maintenance recommendations, u get peace of mind.
My recommendation would be INDIGO.
Best of luck
