Default Hi......looking for a car in 3lacs to 5 lacs budget.

Hi,
I own a Tata Safari 2.2 and a 9 year old santro. Now that the santro is old and is giving me lot of troubles I have 2 options.

1.To sell Santro and go in for NEW CAR.
2.To retain Santro and go in for a 3rd car.

I have in mind Chevy - Spark / U-AV then I10 or any other car which fits in my need.

I am looking for a car with - masculine look,FE,Less maintenance and to be a head turner on road if possible with The MODs done.

I like to have various inputs from this forum.
Srinivas.

Sorry buddy, can't help it:

Get a REVA. Has most of the above -- especially will be a 'head turner' with the Mods done.

Since you already have a BULL, you should go for a small car like Spark. For 4.x you will get it fully loaded with safety features too. While the looks are subjective, the other requirement of yours will be taken care.
Just my 2 cents.

Try to avoid buying a car with MODS done.
Generally such a car has been driven in a very spirited manner and the only reason its being sold is because its trashed to an inch of its life.

For your other questions, I think a new thread is not needed.

why dont you take a look at the new indica vista. Going by the reviews by our fellow members..looks like we have a great package from tata's. Put in some wicked alloys and am sure it will be a headturner

I'd say Indica Vista (Diesel) if your running is high
else Hyundai i10

Both are decent cars.
Choose the one which suits your budget and your running needs.
