i am pretty sure the fabia is going to be priced well above the swift Vdi leave alone the Vxi. so if you don't mind bearing the extra cost i don't think there is much to stop you from picking up the fabia.

oh and of course there is that heart stopping service bills that you get every once in a while!

I would suggest that Palio Stile 1.6. Reasons:

1) Good Power
2) Great space
3) Good ride quality and handling
4) Great build quality
5) The price is a steal.

If you dont mind a lil less powered car go for the Stile 1.1 SLX. I own one and can tell u that its a pretty good car to drive. Spares availability is pretty good.

"i will prefer car which has less running cost"

IMHO the Swift is a better option.

If you can, go for the Swift VDi, or even VXi if you want petrol.

Swift would seem the obvious choice. However, make sure it can take your size.

P.S. I feel the cars you are considering cannot be compared one to one. Also the Fabia will not be good as a first car.

Stop waiting for fabia and start waiting for Grante punto.

i will vouch for that...me too keepin fingers crossed for Grande punto

me 6'3 & own a palio, & have driven swift petrol..leg room wise palio is better but the clutch action is bigger than of swift it can be a lil tiring in bumper to bumper traffic.

if you include the price factor the palio 1.6 Stile is a steal...

Mods, please merge this thread with older thread, since everyone is asking repeat questions about varun's preferences.

Swift VXI is an obvious choice.. But make sure you take all cars for a test drive before you decide.

Go for SWIFT VXI. If you can wait, VDI would be much better. FABIA would be quite pricy to own and maintain over swift.
