Default Spark LT vs Xeta GLG vs Santro GLS

Hi..

After a lot of deliberation, I have finally come down to 3 models:
1) Spark LT
2) Santro GLS
3) Xeta GLG

I want to buy a car among ONLY these 3 models. I can think about the CNG option (available with Santro and Xeta with the warranty still being valid).. My average monthly usage is around 1000 kms. The prices for these cars quoted in gurgaon are given below (all are ON ROAD prices, after corporate discount):

1) Spark LT- 348,000
2) Santro GLS- 360,000 (extra 59K for CNG)
3) Xeta GLG- 310,000 (extra 62K for CNG)

Please help me in selecting one of these cars. Important parameters for me are ride quality, comfort, FE, looks, longevity (not in any particular order).. once a month, I go for long drives (>300 kms).
Is it advisable to go for CNG? Santro with CNG would cost me 71K more than Spark. Xeta+CNG would be 24K more than spark... Hence, i guess the competition would be between Spark and Xeta+CNG(only in monetary terms). However, taking all other factors into consideration,what do you guys suggest?

Ride quality
Xeta~Spark > Santro

Comfort
Xeta > Spark > Santro

FE
Spark~Santro >Xeta

Looks (subjective)

Spark > Xeta > Santro

Longevity (not really sure what this means, are you talking about engine reliability?)
Santro > Spark >Xeta

I would say go for the Spark. At 3.5 L for Fully loaded top model, its a great Value for money car.

And if it has to be an Indica, it has to be a diesel. Thats my personal opinion.

My pick would be Spark LT. And it comes with safety features like Airbag too. Also it has 3 yrs cashless offer. So, its clearly Sparky within those 3 option you have given.

Goldeneagle,

Would be best for you to search within the forum archives. The Spark vs Xeta vs Santro topics have been discussed comprehensively.
