Question There is no car for me?

I have plan to buy a new car in this year. I think there is no car in Indian market which meet all of my needs.

1] Budget between 4-5 lac on road..
2] Fuel Consumption: above 15kmpl at least in city.
3] Ground Clearance: 180 mm plus [ as my old swift had only 170 which is less for my area]
4] Boot space : 500
5] Alloys, Power steering, sexy looks, A/c .

I have shortlisted some car which meet some needs..

Fiat Grand Punto, Chevrolet Aveo U-VA 2008 ,Maruti A Star (YC 5), Maruti Splash

Any recommendation ? I think i have to end up with Nano for few years

There is no new CAR for your requirement.

I suggest used Safari, you can find good one from Bangalore. I saw ad Safari Petrol top end for sale 5 lac is expected price I guess. You can find Diesel Safari Lx (2006 model) for 5 lac easily in Bangalore.

Regards,

Ravi.

Tata Sumo or Mahindra Bolero? You won't get 15km/ltr in the city though. No car can do that consistently.

how you said indigo CS?
1] Budget between 4-5 lac on road.. yes...it's 3.79 lac
2] Fuel Consumption: above 15kmpl at least in city. -- i don't have idea
3] Ground Clearance: 180 mm plus --- 165mm which is less then my old swift.
4] Boot space : 500 380.00 which is ok for me.
5] Alloys, Power steering, sexy looks, A/c . --- no power steering, no Alloys, looks sexy with ac.

if not all, atleast 4 needs have to fulfill.

You will not get a sedan with 180mm ground clearance and definitely not one with 500l boot space under 5 lacs. You either need to up your budget or get realistic.

deadman, seems like you are looking for a perfect car but you won't get any, with that budget. I would advice you to prioritize your needs and then go for a car which meets the high priority ones.

get your self the new bolero with ac and pw, you have the car in your price range,

it gives around 12kmpl, diesel

has more ground clearence than you need

has all the space you need,

you can add aura 5 spoke thick alloys for looks

and lastly will have to compromise only driving comfort as the clutch might be a little hard!

well you have to lose some to get some, this or amby or the indigo cs are your closest options!

How about a Fiat Adventure? You might pick up an old Siena Adventure with a diesel engine that might fulfil your fuel efficiency requirements too.

danlalan, irfanmon, new AMBY? r u kidding me....Rs 4-crore luxury car ?

rider60, bolero? no man...I'm talking about sexy car , not 4x4

how about "Maruti Suzuki A-star" it's below 3 lac?.. I think i have to forget about ground clearance, Fuel Consumption and Boot space .....other then that it looks supper sexy, below 3 lac...with power steering, a/c alloys...looks like i have to wait another 12 month for it...

A-star is a concept as of now. Does not exist for sale. No one knows when its gonna be out either. These folks are talking about the 4lac amby not 4cr ambierod.
