    Default WTB a new car. Your suggestions and inputs welcome.

    This is the car i'm thinking of replacing ,my WagonR Stingray of almost two year vintage. I like the car a lot but i like change too. My initial idea was to replace this car with a more powerful hatch but then i've always had an eye for the Mahindra Thar and maybe a compact SUV like the Terrano but to complicate things even further Mahindra will be launching a butch compact SUV in September that i want to wait for before i make a final decision. Below after pic of my current ride are my numbered choices and i've made it a bit confusing for myself as i can't make up my mind so looking for suggestions from as many sources. Thanks in advance...

    my current city car ride . i paid 5.2lacs on-road when it was all new but now you can get 30-40000 in discount off the rack. i can sell it for 3.75lacs thru an used car dealer or trade it in for less. i dislike dealer trade in offers.

    I'm not sure that you guys have Nissan Safari ( Petrol ) there but it's a Good Suv and it's also fast and Yes If wanna buy 4x4 then you must check out the Jeep wrangler

    Jeep is formally entering the indian market in late 2015/early 2016 with the Cherokee and Wrangler initially. the Nissan Safari(Patrol in india not to confuse with TATA Safari SUV) has been imported in india and can be seen on the road and i think i've taken a couple of spotting pics in 'my local view' thread. closest to the safari is our homegrown Mahindra Bolero , in pic below, imo the most rugged 4X4 one can buy in india.this is the short wheel base car, you can opt for extended wheel base car too

    below is the car that delayed my decision. it was first on my original list to begin with but with so many on the road i paused. i checked it out thoroughly and nothing really compares in it's category and ergo, Hyundai sold 10,662 i20 cars in August. now, i cannot postpone any longer, the dreaded decision. my next post in this thread will reveal my choice and thanks for watching. cya
