I thought it was: Fiat Palio 1.6 Sports!

Back to topic, the Car that comes close to Palio's features is: Aveo U-VA!
Test drive it & then decide.
Also check out Swift D, but I heard a huge waiting period of 3 - 6 months, so that may not be a good idea!

Pawan, Parag was driving a Palio before. He may have a reason not to look at Fiat again.

With a six lakh budget, there are a lot of things you can look at Parag. Let us know your needs in detail.

We can have another poll if you want to?

What do you mean?
All those who recommend a Palio here, own a Palio!
Unlike some who have never driven/own a Palio, but would blindly recommend not to buy a Palio!

Since its both chauffer and self driven and considering long trips, Palio stile or Indica(go) may fit the bill. If you travel rear seat when chauffer driven, then I doubt Swift. Can the Estilo meet Palio in terms of ride quality?

I would say go for Getz(non prime) if you want a petrol car, and Swift DDiS if you want diesel.
