    Welcome to the club! In your budget and for a new driver, one can only suggest to buy a used Suzuki Mehran with CNG or maybe an old Corolla 86 model with CNG. Check out the used cars online as well as at a nearby car dealer's shop to get a sense about cars available around your budget..

    Mehran nd Cuore in that order , mehran has cheaper maintenance cost then cuore and for a new driver it is the best car .

    Don't go for the alto 660cc unless ur a very good/rich driver as its parts are very expensive but most importantly dont go for an auto if you want to learn driving the proper way
    Never give up, never back down, Always give a 110 percent,

    2003 is good condition and 2004 in fair , i am not sure about the later models. Check online here at PW there are many mehrans, Just check the state of the engine , no smoke, sound etc. Check clutch and take a denter with you for checking body condition.

    For those who don't know about car can say this rubbish thing charade is one of the best car in hatchback cars if u get it in good condition
