I too sometimes have that doubt . I know it is the fastest in its class (Sedan), if you leave out the Baleno, on sheer weight to engine capacity measures. But whether an enthusiast's car ?? I reserve my doubts on that.

Yeah, not only a better highway car but a better overall car too. But I found the OHC-vtec more fun when pushed harder.

I saw this thread today only wanted to share my recent purchase.
Maruti Swift Vdi

Model : Jan 2009 Model
Km Covered : 22800
Color -- White
Condition -- ScratchLess

Accesories -:
Skin Tight Black color leatherette seat covers.
Sony stereo (With USB) and pioneer 4 speakers
All doors and rear screen with Garware shield.
All 5 tires changed to 195/60/R14 imported Kenda Make, and well rotated on time good tread left
Extended warranty taken and still 22 months left.
Insurance renewed in Jan 2010 so 10 months left.
20K service done on 5th Feb so next service due is also quite far.
Maruti original Center locking with touch sensitivity.
Teflon Coating.

All accessories are from maruti dealer only and I have all the bills till now including all services and purchase.
It was driven by a lady for daily office commute and local city run.

The total deal was cracked in 4.35L.
Car is Chandigarh number registered and here in Chandigarh resale price is a little higher than other cities.
I am quite happy with the deal and enjoying the car.
On road price of Vdi is 5.4 in chd. and if accessories cost is included it is roughly 5.7.

Now thats some deal. Congratulations!

I believe VDi here in Delhi costs about 5.5lac and I have personally seen a year old car being sold for about 4.8 to 5 lac. For this, you can give credit to the 4 months waiting period on new car and a very high demand.

You have certainly got a great deal considering this.

Do post an initial ownership report with mandatory snaps.

Take care and drive safe.

Pre-worshipped deal of 2010:

2009 Black Ford Fiesta 1.6S. Thane registered. Still in warranty. 9,000 kms on the odo. Price = Slightly less than 5.0 lakhs. A friend (and fellow BHPian) may shortly be picking this car up.

Still want to buy a brand new car?

With this type of deals, No. But I guess such sweet deals are few and far between. One may have to invest considerable amount of time and effort and be really patient.

True Guna. But then, so is the often quoted "no pain, no gain" line. If it were so easy to get such cars, everyone would line up and prices would instantly shoot up

I quite like things the way that they are. Scouring the market for deals is so much fun . And that's exactly where our knowledgebase - as a petrolhead - comes in handy.
