    Default 1.5 million budget best car

    Gents,
    I am in same fuss.
    I have the same budget of 1.5 million, and would like to purchase a vehicle. I bought a pk WagonR 2014 last year, which is very good experience. With good fuel economy and comfort. Now i want to upgrade. It's time to move on to better things. I need a family car with good comfort.

    I have the following options in mind:
    2010-2012 Civic
    2012-2014 City or even can consider base model of brand new city with some increased budget.
    2010-2013 Corolla GLi
    Big no to XLI (No safety)

    Once/twice a month i have to go for 500-800 km (not on motor way) travel so please consider this factor. Some times but not often also used to go for off road/local areas where roads are not good.
    The preference would be comfort, fuel economy, peace of mind, safety and security feature, spare parts availability.
    Advise me on what should I choose. The pros and cons of each. The pricing I should have in mind for each. Which variant amongst these should I look out for. Other associated details.

    Since you have to travel on kacha and want a comfortable and reliable car. Scratch out the hondas, I would advise you to get a 2012-2013 1.6 gli, get it insured and use a chor switch.
    The best option for you is a 2007-2010 axio, a clean 2007 axio x will cost you around 15.
    The pros of these mentioned vehicles, economical, ride height, comfort, pleasurable drive, parts availability etc
    Cons gli is a hot cake among thieves and axio, well I guess some parts might be a bit more expensive then its competitors.

    As for why I scratched the hondas, civic can't bare too much kacha and has a clearance issue. City has a bit of a hard suspension for an 800 km journey that too on uneven roads.

    Yes Brand new Honda City base model in 1.57-1.6 million will be perfect and peace of mind, with good mileage. City was my 1st choice. I am only concerned about its off road/kacha drive. Further will city be really good and comfortable on long routs, where u have to travel for 500-800 km a day. I am not asking for travel on motorway or very good carpet roads. Mostly i have to travel in Southern Punjab where road condition is not so good. As advised by dear Dayrider GLI is another option which i think is very good in these areas. Some concern with GLI is its low fuel economy, plus it does not look like family car, last prone to theft but this is theft issue is very rare in areas where i travel most.

    As for AXIO, I dont know much in depth, what about the availability of Axio spare parts as i have to travel too far in southern PUNJAB, not in the main cities often. Further i am not sure but thinking that 2007 model will be very old and asking for trouble/maintenance on regular basis. The regular maintenance/spare search is really very tuff for person like me as mostly i remain on the field. I do not get much time to go to the marketes in the search of spares.

    It's a better family car than a city, city has hard suspension for performance. It's durable too but its not comfortable. 500-800 km of pot holes is not it's cup of tea. Fuel economy of gli is more or less similar to the city, based on driving styles. The 1.6 achieves better economy.
    Personally used all three of these mentioned cars and proud to say, only one of them is still in the porch, the rest had to go

    You see, there are more things to a car than the added options. More important things, like comfort, durability, enjoyable drive.
    Toys are fun but in the long run, they make no sense.
    That said, May you enjoy your new ride

    And have a broken back? Hundred kms on broken roads in a city is definitely not recommended. City has a hard suspension meant for good handling and paved roads

    no doubt City has hard suspension, but anything which is 3-4 old which you dont even know how kept before could be risky just my opinion bro
