  • Expert Accent CRDI will be best suited for your requirments .You can get a good condition Accent in much lesser price than budget mentioned.Please use search option for the same. If Looking for hatch back ,Indica will be a good choice.

  • Hi ! This is Abhijit Ghose, an auto lover.

    I would like to advise you to go in for a diesel vehicle by all means since your daily running is about 110-120 km. Indica DLG (with turbo engine) would be a very good option for you. But I would like to advise you to go in for a bigger car or a SUV as these vehicles would be safe than a small car like Indica since you would be mostly travelling on highways. You can look at Ford Fiesta 1.6 diesel which I am told gives good mileage but is little expensive maintenance wise.

    Take a test drive and try out couple of vehicles and then carefully decide.

    Best of luck !!!

  • I would say try fiat palio diesal. this engine is given to swift and desize also.if you can stretch your budget swift ldi may be around 5.7 lacks. but safety power and all in cheaper prise you will get in fiat palio. india is not so safe in highways. death rate is high. fiat body is strong, even better then swift.

  • hi junnaf.
    i think like most of them have said, indica is a good try. why don't you think of the indigo CS. its just about near your budget. like some one mentioned about the highways not beaing safe, the CS is a good bet compared to a hatch will be safer & studier because of the wider wheel base compared to a hatch. the TDI engine is a good one. there were some problems earlier,but now they have got rid of all them. again my personal experience with TATA is pretty good.they are pretty prompt with complaints(depends again on the dealer).
    palio multi jet is a good car too.very refined & good power delivery.

  • I must recommend you Swift diesel. its a fantastic car with milage of 20+ /ltr. Road grip is also good. price is also near to you budget. Else go for second hand Safari Dicor. you can get 2005 LX model in 4.5 to 5.25 range.

  • Swift Diesel. Excellent Milage and very cheap to maintain unlike Hyundai cars
