Is it worth buying new car now or wait till festive season?what would be benefits?

FOr that price, it'll be a very used City; irrespective of OHC/NHC . Buy the Swift instead.

Dude go for the swift so that maintaining a used car "worry" you in the future

Go for Swift VDI and enjoy it as other swift owners.

About painting it better get it done outside it would cost much lesser. anyway do some research on the price and quality of job done. so dont be in hurry.

good luck!

go for a new Swift Vdi and enjoy the benefits

buying a new car is always better in terms of satisfaction/peace of mind when compared to buying an old car

I was in a similar confused state and I have come out of it as a winner...
I bought a City and believe me the comfort and the feel (power can be debated and also depends on your requirement) is far superior to Swift; though Swift in itself is also good. I love the look of the old city and picked up the old model and with that serpentine sedan look, I look for a reason to get into the car and drive....
