The pedal problem in Santro remains.. even in the new Xing..(source Autocar India B segment road test Jul 2004)....
And why dont u consider a WagonR VXI or WagonR AX... a much better overall package than Santro and ur dad will love driving and parking it....

I guess theres nothing new i can add execpt reiterate that santro fits the bill here as it is definitely more comfortable to drive in city conditions. Palio feels a bit sluggish because of its weight and also has visibility problems. The santro is more manuverabe too.
Let your dad drive both and decide.

its the getz for me.
but if its only the looks and performance that matter then its a red palio diesel.but wud never go near a petrol palio .
the red palio looks so terrific ,that u feel like waxing it the whole day and admire it.

depends on what kind of person u are if u are a newbie and dont love to drive much and fuel efficiency,easy handling,small turning diameter,good service and resale is what u prefer over good looks,tuff build,great ride ,good handling ,space then go in for santro, if u like the qualities mentioned later palio is the car for u.
ill choose palio anyday,red color,chrome alloys,good tyres(205),customised spoiler and skirtings.......and a blasting audio sys.....
