Personally, I am all out for Altis M/T. It is no doubt the best value for money, feature wise.
I guess the Biggest drawback in the package is the same body frame/shape as the base line XLI.
Honda have clearly defined the difference between their 1300 and 1800 cc class (MARK DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CITY AND CIVIC)
but here the base line feature less XLI (NO offense to any ones ride ) has the same frame/structure as Top of the line Altis. Isn't ?!
