Cars Q&A

Which car to go for? Chevrolet Beat LT or Maruti Suzuki Ritz VXi Requirements: 1. Would look for good resale vaue for my car 2.Would be used as a secondary car. 2. Would be used locally, average running 50-60 kms a day. 3. Would be used by me, driven around by me or Chauffeur. What I like about Beat (LT): 1. New car, looks are subjective, but i like the stance. 2. Interiors are ok, blue backlight effect and black inserts are cool. 3. ACC on LT model. 4. Integrated music system with USB. 5. Rear defogger, wiper/washer. 6. Three year maintenance package. What I dont like about beat: 1. Rear leg room is not that great. Rear seats too felt a little cramped. 2. Boot space. 3. Speedometer. 5. No keyless entry. 6. No wheelcaps, I did not like the metal rims. 7. Extra premium of Rs. 5500 for metallic colors. (Only White, black and silver are non-metallic) I am creating the thread to get a general idea on how good or bad it is when compared to Ritz's. What I like about Ritz VXi: 1. Great engine. Good power, great mileage. 2. Keyless entry. 3. 60:40 split rear seat. 4. Good average. 5. Better boot than beat. 6. Good interior quality and design is not too bad either. 7. Maruti's peace of mind. 8. Good resale. What I dont like about Ritz VXi: 1. I was not a huge fan of the car when it was launched, but now, I have gotten kinda used to it. I find beat a better looking car than ritz. 2. No music system. 3. Black ORVM's and door handles (No biggie). 4. No ACC. 5. Costs Rs. 24255.65 (ex. showroom) more than Beat. Which car do you think is a better overall package. Please do not suggest cars higher in price range than these two.

Go for Ritz, Basically Beat is an upgraded version of a Chevy Spark in forien contries and they sale as a New model along Spark in India. Ritz have a great space and comfort for 5 people. Chevy(American) vehicles are not offer good resale value. Do not just opt Beat just for a Defogger/Rear Wiper they are mostly useful on Rainy days only and USB integrated Pioneer will cost you only Rs9000 with speakers. My options is go for a Big and powerful car Ritz.

Its nice to see detailed question with pro's and con's.
As mentioned Chevrolet beat indeed offers best of features and value for the money. Its stylish,has good performance engine. Drawback is the legspace in rear seat. Considering overall factors Beat would be a better selection.
