Cars Q&A

I want to purchase one comfortable car or SUV MPV within a budget of around 25 lakhs. I have to travel 2000kms per month locally within the city of bhubaneswar and another 2000kms for long drives of places around 500km away from bhubaneswar.I am a Thalassemic and managing with 2 to 4 bottles of blood infusion regularly per month. When the transfusion date arrives , my body becomes weak.Hence I need comfortable car with Automatic Transmission. Also occassionaly I have to go to some villages located at 400kms away from my residence. I am a civil Engineer by profession and I have other interests like running an Agricultural farm at 120kms away. I have narrowed down my choices to Skoda Superb 2.0 Diesel DSG Auto and Chevrolet Captiva and hyundai Sonata Transform Diesel AT . Please suggest me the best buy.

  • The only SUV in your list is Captiva. The strongest in your list is Skoda (Laura and above) and Captiva. Check if Hyundai has got Santa Fe launched and take a test drive before finalizing.

  • i think the chevy captiva will fit your the amount of highway driving you have mentioned , an suv is a better choice. with a 3 year spares & service warranty from GM , i feel , it should be hassle free experience for you. like you said , you will be driving , it is surely a drivers car .

  • I will bet on the Chevy Captiva, as it is an SUV and you are talking of agricultural land and civil engineering (meaning a lot of site visits). Both the Superb and the Sonata will occupy the same space on the road as the Captiva, so there is no size advantage in the city with either of them, over the Captiva. With the Captiva, you will enjoy a higher seating position and that will be more comfortable. All three will give you roughly the same mileage, so that is also not an issue.
    Captiva, sir, is the way to go....

  • Expert First, let me tell you that you are a rock star, that inspite of all your problems, you are doing so much in life. Its a lesson for many of us.

    Coming to your need, given the choices Skoda Superb is indeed a superb sedan. But why not try the ford Endeavour or the Suzuki Grand Vitara. Both are solid, spacious and very comfortable both off road and on it.

    But if you have zeroed in on the chioices, then go for the Skoda.
