    santro prime is like a rickshaw. no power features.

    GO FOR JOY...

    Santro has no match with Chevy yaar. Go for Joy. Its safety features are enough to buy it. The guy above said right that santro is a rickshaw Chevrolet means Standard, Quality. Joy is fully power packed. There is no resale of santro. Europian safety authority has awarded Joy 4 star out of 5 in safety. Think for your and your family lives dude...Think for safety...Think for Joy. Good luck!

    Go for Santro. Plus points of santro are:

    1- Good resale.
    2- Availibity of spare parts (cheaply available as compared to joy).
    3- Powerfull pickup even on cng and ac on.
    4- Good car design as compared to Dadu shape of Joy.

    My vote go for santro..

    Go for joy its better in comfort and features than santro
    the only thing that goes in favour of santro is a bit of resale it has.

    Well buddy.... question is : how much money remains in ur pocket after buying car.

    if you are a hot shot.... buy joy .. dont think twice.it's Quality is no match for santro.... but bad resale

    but if u are a middle class guy and you are buying from ur savings then go for Santro. low in quality, uncomfortable back seat , but easy in maintenance.
    infact u wont need much in first few years.

    last option vitz. if u can manage ,,, go for it. quality far away better then both. high maintenance cost but good resale.
    but when buying vitz be very carefull. as they come second hand.
    best of luck.....

    Go for neither and wait for new shape (2 years old) Chevrolet Joy to come out. AKA Chevrolet Spark in India and Chevrolet Matiz in Europe.

    vitz parts are very expensive and not easily available. buy a new car and insurance will be low as well. santro has same resale as joy so dont compromise on quality, safety and comfort cos of supposed resale. i myself have been using a joy for over 6 mths and its a great car. check this link out where someone chose the joy over cultus and is very happy:

    i have been a santro victim and would like to share my experiance, if it cud help someone avoid falling into a pit.

    no offence intended but i had a terrible experiance overall with this crappy brand. firstly, never in my life did i face such problems with any car i have driven (tht includes mehran). just to quote a few, worn out front discs, very peculiar kind of sound while braking, very poor braking performance specially on highway, had to get the a/c gas refilled during the very first year and tht too, cudnt make it perform any better etc. etc. now the point to b noted is tht i drove this car hardly for a year and was so frustrated tht had to dispose it off in eleven months. i had a santro club GV. throughout this year, it cudnt get tuned on cng even though i used to take it to authorized dealers for maintenence. on highways, usually during shifting between 3rd and fourth & fourth and fifth gears, the engine used to turn off as soon as i used to hit the clutch pedal, leaving me in a life endangering situation, at times. till very last day, this prblm wasnt resolved by any of the authorized dealers available in khi. once i was supposed to travel to hyd and a day earlier, i visited sherwani (hyundai's authorized dealer) at super highway, for scheduled maintenance including brake service. next day, on my way to hyd, a very strange and loud sound started coming out whenever i pressed the brake pedal. as soon as i reached hyd, i took it straight to one of my known local mechanics there and he pointed out tht its origional brake shoes have been replaced by the ones being used in corolla 82 model. yeh to haal hai inke authorized dealers ka. aur is per bhi inke nakhray toyota waloon se chaar haath barh ker hain. moreover, i bought it brand new from their authorized dealer but the piece i got delivered had its front doors colored different from the rest of the body and the difference was too obvious specially during daylight. in the end, i was so pissed off tht i decided to just dispose it off becuase not a single week passed tht i didnt take it to the workshop for one repairs or the other. i then switched to cultus in 2006 and Alhumdullillah, its working perfect for me despite the fact tht i took it as a second hand car of 2005 model, with only 8,000 kms on its mileage meter. now it has completed its 40,000 kms recently and not a single prblm as yet other than its shock absorbers, which i am looking to replace by the end of next month may be. still, i wud highly recommend u to go for cultus bcause of its reliability and much better road grip and dont even think about this crap called santro.

    SANTRO .......... May have a better resale
    JOY ................. Everything .... but the resale.

    If you want comfort, luxury, power then go for JOY
    If you want to compromise .... go for SANTRO
