Can anyone put some light on why 50K difference?? Is the difference just like the one that is there between NHC and other compititors?
I am going to keep my car for something more than 10 years I still have my Esteem 97 and 800 93. So i need a car with damn good built quality ( above anything else.)
Palio SLX 1.1!

No car offers its Build quality & Handling in that price bracket!

I would second Mr. Ravi Bhat's suggestion.
With the new 1.3 MJD I think Palio style will be a terrific car.

I got Delivery of my White i10 Today. Nice car. I love it but then there is definately problem with the Fan in a/c it makes a lot of noise when in point 2 or above. At 4 you can make out your paddles vibrating. Anyway It cools well on 1 point too. Now i have to get new Mats for it. Dad changed his mind few days back to get tht gold kinda colour...ughhh.... But finally he gave in to my persuadings. I like the looks of the car Still i feel, it somehow resembles a sitting frog. What say guys?

Congrats somebodystopme. Which variant did you buy, Magna or Era? How much is the final OTR? Did you get any discount or freebies? What about the music system? Did you get it installed from the dealer?

Yesterday I sat in a test drive vehicle of i10 and found that it's noisy, compared to Wagon R and Spark. Turning the AC off didn't help.

I second srikat. Ride quality is better in spark with noiseless smooth engine and good suspension etc

Anyway Getz 1.1 is not my Type. I would rather go for santro then. Estillo lacks looks, Santro too old, Wagon R too common and Fiat Palio. I personally think its going to end up like Daewoo so spares can be a problem, Spark doesnt have good interiors.

So we are going for i10(magna).Now i need to know what can i do to ensure that the car I get hasnt been used as test drive vehicle by the showroom. We are going to buy it from Himgiri Hyundai Delhi.
Since you are not going to be driving much so the diesels are out automatically and since you have ruled out the getz, estillo , wagon R,spark and palio then i guess u are left with nothing much than the i10 .a good car with refreshing interiors and a good engine.

i10 or Wagon R?

I am looking to purchase my first ever car for commuting in the chaotic Bangalore traffic. I've narrowed down the choices to i10 (not yet decided between Era and Magna) and Wagon R VXi.

On road prices are:

i10 Era: Rs. 4,26,000
i10 Magna: Rs. 4,54,000
Wagon R Vxi: Rs. 4,12,000

I've started taking driving lessons only today. Any advice will be appreciated. I've gone through some of the posts in this forum and read that the visibility is not so good in i10. Is that an issue big enough to be worried about?

Thanks in advance.

Well I havent found any such problem about visiblity with my i10. I also have an Esteem and I feel visibility in i10 is better.

Thanks bro. I have got i10 Magna. I got the car for 4.15 Lac after deducting 2000 for rust coating and 5000 cash discount. Freebies I got mudguards thats all. No music system in the car by company. I had to replace it as it is even if there was, so am satisfied.

Default Re: Car within 4.5Lakh

Sorry for bumping up an old thread but one of my friend is in same dillemma.

Budget - 4-4.5 Lakhs
Required Features - Power Window, Power Steering, AC. Good in mileage and low on maintenance.
Drive - 500 KM per month approx. So has to be a petrol car.

Choices - Hyundai I10 Megna, New Wagon R, Ford Figo, Ritz.

Please confuse me more by adding models and which one would you pick?

I was exactly in a similar situation a few months ago and was faced with similar choices within a similar budget. You may check my ownership experience at:

Man, this is really a great feedback. I will review it thoroughly though the choice has almost been made up that its going to be I10 but lets see what lies ahead.

I10 is a good choice. followed by Ritz & Figo.
You should also consider Beat. Comes within the budget and a good VFM as it comes with some good features compared to others + extended warranty.
