  • Expert Hi,
    In the budget range mentioned best selection would be that of a Indigo Manza quadrajet.It has good combination of price,style and reliability.

  • I suggest you go for swift VDI it's the best of the best cars I ever used I am using it from 2 years and I drive1800km / pmth still zero maintanance and good milage of 20 km/ltr in city traffic with ac running all time. Other vehicles in diesel are not as good swift in speed pickup milage and smoothness. Any tata vechile is not good for ac and makes much noise. Think again.

  • Go for swift but if you find it too common on road these days how about i20..

  • It is better to go in for Swift Dzire vxi or vdi model as you will get more boot space than an hatch back. If you have minimum 1500km to drive in a month better go in for vdi model which is diesel driven. I bought vxi model of swift dzire as i have only about 500 to 600km per month driving. It is about one year since I purchased the car and I am proud to say that I am a fully satisfied customer. Tata cars are not dependable due to inconsistency from one car to another belonging to the same batch of production. Moreover Tata service is very poor cpomparing to maruti service.

  • Hi Prakash,
    I would suggest that you go gor swift Dzire VDI model which is prices around 640000 (on road price - delhi).
    1. It fits well into your budget
    2. No other car maker in India matches the Maruti Reliability and the service network and quality. (you have already owned a maruti so you also know it)
    3. The diesel engine is too good in terms of performance and also in terms of the running cost.
    4. I had done the calculations for myself and even my run uo is the same as yours, the diesel version would be any day better than a petrol car.

    All the best.

  • hi prakash,
    you requirements match those of mine. i got a new car just 20 days before. after doing so much of research on cars i finalised on Fiat Punto. 6.36 lakhs . emotion variant. am so happy that i made a good choice:). we all know about the FIAT 1.3 multijet diesel engine which runs in swift,indica and lots of other cars in india.. its the same 1.3 engine.wat makes punto special from swift are these following :

    1) ABS- u def need antilock breaking systems in your car now. safety first :) swift offers abs but long booking time..
    2) 150 kgs heavier than swift . once again good sturdy feel while driving and awesome handling :)
    3)front length( safety )and total length. spacious:)
    4) lots of added features like 60:40 seat folding,digital meters,and lots of other stuff.

    more than all u feel unique when u ride punto wheareas swift is outdated . almost everyone drive that.

    trust FIAT . they never let u down . wat theyt lacked was direct sales in india and thats y they failed ti make it big in market but all theier cars have been successful.. go for PUNTO and u'll enjoy.
    mileage 1 less than that of swift.
    maintanence every 15k kms... swift 10k
