I would like to share my experience about these cars.
Have used Civic oriel late 2006 model for 4 years and it was a very good experience.
Car is comfortable, Speedy, Road grip is also very good. Cockpit gives a different feeling.
Now i have a 2.OD saloon 2010 model.
Its also very good. Drive is good to. Very good for bumpy roads. But still it doesn't gives a pleasure of drive which Civic gives.
I will suggest you to go for Civic top of the line model. Go for Oriel.
Altis 1.6 is also a good deal. Fuel efficient. But still paying 1.9 million for a car which is similar to shape of 1.4 million car.
