buying which one of them do you think makes more sense zen di,indica dlx or palio d elx? i am in favor of the indica coz its the best value and the newer version looks best of the lot,the engine is very quiet in latest version ,tata has a decent aftersales service,spare parts are cheapest,resale value is good and its roomy and spacious.

Go for the Indica DLS or DLX.. pretty amazing car.. as u have said.. gr8 fuel efficiency, loads of space, cheap spares..fit and finish not that upto the mark.. but u can definately go with it! A real winner in its class!

Palio D for me. Great car, technologically most advanced diesel today among small cars. decent power and good torque. best looks too and best ride and handling. What else do u want?

The Palio D. Undoubtedly. You just get so much more than other diesel hatches

If you want driving pleasure then Palio D is good. If you want just cheap & efficient motoring with truck loads of space then Indica is the best. There is nothing much to talk about the service..both being hopeless. Indica is miles away from being a pleasure to drive car. Better to go for it if your chauffeur driven. Also, if choosing the Indica go for the DLS version. It makes more sense. DLX just not worth the money.

Also remember to sell off your Indica in 50,000kms or 2-3years whichever is earlier
Btw FYI I also own a 2 yrs old Indica which I'm selling off .

Palio D good car and i think still worth the extra dough u have to dish out
or if its just point A to B with loads of Kms Zen d, engine good, best mileage, dealerships.. rest nothing to talk about
Indica good VFM if u have luck on ur side.. i wish inidca were more consistent and refined people would have fallen in love with it..
