@ sameer551: You seemed to be happy with your 800 except for the seats, I think you can overcome this by adding a lumbar support to your seat. If you have already consulted a doctor (an ergonomist) get the feedback on sitting posture/lumbar support (which could just be a pillow) and get it made from a furniturewala. I also think there must be pillows available readily in the market for lumbar support.

PS: You car may not be the only culprit, so recommend visiting your sitting position at work/home and your sleeping posture as well.

koshun of the day: have you driven to work with a sacro lumbar belt? MGRM ONLY! Try it a day and then ask whether you need 400 bucks' belt or 4 lakhs' car

mods: double post cause cant edit original now!

MY doctor told me to stop wearing lumbar support belt as it would permanently weaken my back and I would get dependent.

You can try the i10 magna also. It is within your budget.

The best option, since otherwise your 800 is fine for you!

Hi! Friends,
Thanks for your efforts and invaluable suggestions. I'm going enquire from shops here in Karol Bagh delhi for such kind of belts or seat.
Anyone from delhi would like to recommend some shop here?
Thanks again.
Also I've to buy one more car for sure. So was considering this comfort level as priority while purchasing.
