Hi,
For the requirments and availability in the budget range.New Wagon R would be an ideal selection for its updated engine, interiors,service network. At present Diesel sedan would cost around 5.5 lac onwards.The RPM indicates the highest power developed at the max RPM mentioned,The acceleration of vehicle would be relative to that.Recommended to test drive Wagon R. If the budget range can be increased further then New Indigo eCS petrol would be the best selection.

hi frnd,

1. your yearly running will be 15- 20,000kms so go for a dieselcar.

2. power(hp)/torque(nm)@rpm is given for every vehicle u r confused on that right?
more power/torque @ lower rpms means better city drives. If u get more power at lower acceleration drive will be more comfortable, less gear change in city( eg. the fiat punto does better than swift in city drive mainly in 2nd and 3rd gears whch is mostly used in city drives) look at that when u go for diesel..

3. your budget is 4.5 to 5 lakhs the vehicles u shortlisted are wr,i1o,indigocs.. in whch the new indigocs is the best option..
but fr the diesel u have to strech an extra 50k...
i can suggest two more cars in ur budget..

one is the fordfigo, cos its fully packed and engine is reliable...
and the spareparts cost is slashed by the company(which is also a concern),fresh looks also..
service is concern..
another is the FIAT Punto MJD, comes in ur budget(its having a 50000offer), good engine and italian design,comfortable drive in city,good mileage and boot space.. good to be owned..
only concern is resale value

take test drives for both cars
