Cars Q&A

Sir,i wd be buying my first car with a budget of 5-5.5lakhs.Since it wd be a family car for 4 adults with an expected run of about 700km per month i ve shortlisted the HYUNDAI ACCENT,SWIFT DZIRE VXI PETROL and 1.4 GLX MAHINDRA RENAULT LOGAN.The ACCENT,its rumored,is on its last legs and may be phased out soon.Are these rumors true?i figured the SWIFT DZIRE doesnt differ much from the SWIFT in terms of interiors,drive and performance except,ofcourse,for the boot which i wont be needing much.Now the SWIFT is cheaper by a lakh.So finally its between the SWIFT VXI and 1.4GLX MAHINDRA RENAULT LOGAN though they belong to two different segments altogether.The latter seems attractive since it comes with an Rs 25000 discount now and its a midsize car.However im worried about its not so encouraging sales and dismal resale value compared to the SWIFT.Wd it be blasphemous not to buy a MARUTI SWIFT when they seem to be selling like hot cakes.Also SWIFT may ve the new KB series engine early next yr.So is it worth the wait Kindly advise yours truly Dr.Sajit Augustine

Answer

  • Expert Hi,
    Its quite clear that you have quite finalised on Swift.Hence recommended to go ahead with it.As far as waiting is concerned.It wil be worth waiting for few months more provided you have alternative cars for normal usage.Meanwhile it will be a good idea to test drive recommended to test drive Ritz,Punto,Vista.
