i have a budget of approx 9lacs ... i need a car for family use by a close relative ...the main features im looking in it are ...fuel efficiency, spacious enough and off-course easy n cheap maintenance ...i feel most young guys pumped with adrenaline and deep pockets come up with suggestions like VItz n likes which look hot run fast spacious but not that fuel efficient ... i dnt mind buying a nissan or lancer even if they have decent enough fuel consumption (if im lucky to find a clean piece in my price range)but point being a car which is on average better in all these categorieslike if the difference between a mira n city is 3km/l ill opt for a better car with extra space ... that much fuel efficiency is compressible for extra space ... i would be buying for my cousin who is in armed forces ... so keep that also in mind ... hope to hear from u guys soon!
go for a city 05 (if u can find a neat one)....it fulfills all of ur requirements
Liana 2009 Swift DX 2010 Cultus 2011 City 06
If u need a hatch back, go for mira...even more spacious than City and corolla...I have all the three cars my family loves to sit in mira coz it's really roomy...but it doesn't have space for luggage in the trunk.if u need sedan, City for sure..
so no votes for lancer??? ... a close friend of mine suggested me lancer
Lancer is a very good car but it has zero resale (literally won't sell), parts are expensive and is normal in terms of economy... like 11-12kmpl petrol average in-city.
so when ill be buying one ... so its resale would be zero for that seller also ... anyway ... 12km/L in lancer vs 15km/L in a hatchback for a family guy i think lancer will serve him well for next 5 to 6 yrs ... but how u guys compare a Liana in mid 700ks vs a city in 1mil price range ... on one side we r saving a fuel cost of less than a yr ... but on other hand we paying for extra features nice fuel efficient car ... i think city is a nice option then!
