Recently i have sold my Santro Executive 2004 Model
Now we want to buy a 660CC car
The considerations are
1)Fuel consumption, this is most important
2)Maintenance and Availability of spare parts, also the cost of spare parts, this is also very important.
3)Price of the car
4)Should be AUTOMATIC
5)Resale, but as we will keep the car for some time Insha Allah, so not that important, but a factor
The car will be used in city, mostly by my mother with a driver.
Our budget is up to 800,000 and CAN be extended if the machine is good enough.. but we would prefer the 5 -7 range if possible
please share your experience as we need to buy one ASAP..
Thank you for your suggestions
If fuel is no. 1 priority, then a local car with CNG is still your best bet (particularly as I see you have a driver, so he can do the donkey's work of standing at CNG queues). An alto or cultus is a good option.
All imported 660 cars will have problems with spares availability and cost since these are imported not locally made. And frankly, their mileage is not as good as some dealers would like you to believe. If you must, however, consider the Alto since its relatively common so atleast the spares will be more available (though you'll have to overcome its hideous looks).
