Question
Hi! I am planning to buy a sedan (either ford ikon or Opel Corsa/Swing). I already have a Wagon R (Oct 2006) and doing good with it. Plan is to give Wagon R to wife and use the sedan for self. My budget is not too much. within 1 lakhs am getting Ford ikon/Opel Corsa of 2001-02 model. I will be driving sedan not more than 500-600 km a month. Will it make sense to buy ford ikon/opel corsa? Pls suggest. Thanks Utkarsh New Delhi

Sure Mr. Utakarsh,

The Ford Ikon is not such a good car, but the Corsa should serve you well. If you can get one for 1 lakh, and in good condition, you are lucky and should enjoy driving it! Cheers.

Dont go for corsa or Ikon. You have to pay big amount on maintainance..........this is my personal experience.........You can have esteem or some hatchback

Answer by Rahul 07 July 2009

Esteem or the Baleno seem to be a better option any day when going for used and reliable unlike the ford and corsa regards

Answer by Sampath 07 July 2009

Dear all, Thanks for your suggestions.

As i told my budget is less than 1 lakh only, in this budget its difficult to get Esteem of 2000-01 model. Will it be OK to look for 10-12 yrs old Esteem.

I have been driving an Opel Corsa 1.4 l for last five years. I think it is a very good car, with extremely good road holding. smmooth riding, highly efficient AC. Though GM has stopped selling it in India, it is still one of the finest and most admired small car in UL under the brand name of Volvo. If you get one at around Rs 75K it is definitely a good buy.

Answer by AK Sengupta 07 July 2009

Ford Ikon and corsa both have more maintenance cost. driving pleasure wise Ford Ikon is too good, control is very good. spare part of ikon less cheap compare to corsa. last year have buy 2001 model Ford Ikon 1.6 for 1.35 L and used for 1 year with maintence cost around 35K milege around 12000 KM. car was sold in 1.32 L.

Never ever think of buying opel corsa, I faced many issues with it. I bought 2005 model corsa for 70k and sold it to 40k after facing many struggles. Its mileage was hardly 8KMs.
