Cars Q&A

Hi I Live in Patiala Punjab . I am planning to buy a diesel car and am confused in making a choice among, Fiat Linea Emotion, Hyundai Verna, TATA Manza and Ford Fiesta.When i think about Verna it looks almost outdated and overly priced. I like Linea but have doubts about its pick up. Is LIenea really slow or is it just a rumour. Please help me to make a choice.

Fiat linea performance is good and pick up is low compared to verna due to capacity of engine.However it wont affect overall performance of of car.The pick up of Linea from 0 to 60 kmph is app 6.2 sec and that of Verna petrol 5.0 sec. Aalso you can get slightly better mileage in Linea on account of cc of engine.You can reach upto 180 KMPH max.It will infact solve the purpose of owning a reliable stylish sedan.

If u want a good car with good resale value go for swift desire. Ford fista is a good car but has very poor resale value and model for the same may be changed in near future. Verna as u suggeted is on the way out. Fiat linea is the second choise although here also resale value is poor and in backseat, low height is a problem specially with turbans.

HI Shiva JI thanks a lot for your suggestion i would preferably go for a Linea now.Moreover I have heard that Verna is not very stable at high speeds. Thanks to You too dear Vikramjit for youe valuable suggestion. I already own a Swift VDI. Resale value is not my concern because I am not going to sell it for atleast 5 years. After such a long time resale hardly matters it is almost the same for all the cars in same class. Once again thanks a lot.

Linea is the choice (unless you plan to sell your car & resale is important to you). Over 3 or 4 years, the difference in the resale value of cars is not much. However, there is something called ownership experience, I am a Linea Owner & have enjoyed every moment of my ownership of the Car. Its a joy to see the car in your driveway ! Go for it...
