Default Now its Palio 1.1 SLX Vs. Uva 1.2 LS

Ok guys here are the updates. The following cars are out of the scene due to the following reasons.

i10 - Small vehicle and found it slightly difficult to seat 3 at the back. But more than that its the bumpy ride that was a major deciding factor here.

Indica DiCOR - At 4.7 L OTR with just front power windows, A/C and Power Steering made us think twice. Moreover the TATA Beta Test Drivers thing keeps bothering us. SO this one too is out.

Logan - Well. With close to 40K insurance offer, this once was a real competitor. But the ergonomics factor and the fact that this looks and feels built to a budget (that too not that low) sent this one out.

Now the Battle is between the Fully Loaded PalioStle 1.1 SLX and the U-Va 1.2 mid variant LS. Please give me the pros and cons of both.

Give the DLX turbo a chance. It's just a noise/features trade off.
and you get a tried and tested product!

Aah! Gemi... don't use terms that confuses the newbies so badly.

@druva, thats kind of a running joke on Tata. haa haa haaaa... its a general/popular belief that any new Tata vehicle uses its customers to do the beta testing. As time passes Tata keeps removing out all the flaws that the initial batch of customers report. So by extension those initial few customers become somthing akin to the software beta testers.

<<Indica DiCOR - At 4.7 L OTR with just front power windows, A/C and Power Steering made us think twice.

Why not Indica TD + ABS + Dual AirBag?

That too within the budget.

ok. So this is the update.

Test Drive the Palio 1.6 before booking the Palio 1.1. And the result would be....

Booked A Fiat Palio Stile (1.6 Sport)

Thanks for all the help.
