Cars Q&A

Sir, I have a budget of 10-15 lakhs.I would like to know which is the best car which i could buy within this range.I have short-listed Honda Civic,Toyota Corolla Altis , Skoda Laura and the Hyundai Sonata Transform (Petrol).Milage is not an issue.I would be travelling only about 1000 km a month.I would also like to know abt the Chevrolet Cruze which is being launched in some months.I also have my options open for the Cruze as I have sometime to purchase a new vehicle. Pls note : 1)The car should have good/brilliant looks 2)Performance should be good. 3)The car should be very comfortable. 4)It should be comfortable for driving as it wouldn't always remain a chauffeur driven car. 5)It would be good if a get a lot of advanced features with the car. 6)It would also be good to own a car with a good pick up and a high top speed. Please suggest me a car.Other options given by you are also open. Thanks a lot...... I prefer the Skoda Laura but reading reviews about its bad Air conditioning and bad service provided by the company confuses me.Is this true that the Laura does have an A/C problem and the customers are not cared after they have purchased a car? Pls help

Expert`s comment:

The price of Laura ranges at around 16 to 17 lac.Its alround performance is quite good .There is complaint frommany of the customers of Skoda cars about delayed service, but that mainly depends upon the dealer you are purchasing with.
With the budget range mentioned, Toyota Altis will be the best suited one for its overall features and performance.

Sonata Transform would be the best option as i own a Sonata which is around 09 Years old but still on road it's like Fire & u can't make out it's on or off.

& Transform has got 400CC extra power than my car with big tires, better transmission, all gas shock struts & even more big interiors too.

Better go with Sonata as it's engine life is minimum 4Lakh Kms+...

Spares are reliable compared to all other listed cars, easy & wide service network is also there...

Given Your Budget and Short-listed cars, I would suggest you to go for Corolla Altis. It meets all your requirements and will serve you without any problems for years & years. Its best to avoid any Skoda at the moment, as they have a very bad reputation in after sales service.
