Why don't you look at the logical upgrade to the WagonR - Suzuki Ritz.
Meets almost all your requirements. Only issue is that it might not have any discounts as and when its launched (mid May i think) and the Diesel will have a waiting.

Then your uncle can choose between the Ritz and the Jazz (if he finds them suitable) or stick with the Swift/i20/Getz/Fabia (if he doesn't).
Its not a free car, we'll obviously pay for it :P Just that we'll be getting at a good price :P

Will suggest him to wait till july. Lets see. Thanks for the suggestion guys. Will bump up the thread or create a new one when the new cars arrive in the market.

Will show him this thread

And there's always the Pete's box.

Wont suggest a Getz CRDi from a WagonR upgrade if the owner isnt young enough at heart.

i20 will be a good buy since he already is ok with Fabia.
a colleague of mine who owns a getz 1.3 went to TD it - he was planning to upgrade. after the TD,he was really underwhelmed. all upgrade plans are off and he's sticking to his 1.3. I suppose for the average family, it should be fine, but since his uncle needs some more power than the WR, i doubt it will be enough.

How about i10 or 120? Good city runabouts and definetely a notch above the wagon r. Well within the 8 L budget, good interior quality and both petrol.

+1 here. He needs a petrol hatch and these two are probably going to be the best choices considering he wants an upgrade. If the UK review is to be believed Jazz should be a pretty peppy car (0-100 in 12.x secs) so your performance criteria would be met too.

In my opinion there are enough options for an upgrade from WR and in a months time the fight is going to heat up with the launch of Ritz/Jazz/punto.All of them trying to woo the biggest chunk of customers-santro/WR/alto/old matiz/and indica.All the 3 would be better in quality,power etc.ritz for that matter claims 17.7 kmpl for petrol and a new engine with 85ps.Wait for a month and punto would be out jazz may take another month.Jazz would be costlier than the punto and the ritz.
cheers

Wait for the Ritz, it looks more promising! Mid May is not very far! and the new engine would surely proove to be much quicker and powerful than the existing WagonR

My choices:

in Hatch: 1. Jazz, 2. i20
in sedan: 1. Verna D (power is no 1 preference), 2. Linea

All within budget. IMO Fabia with lost of maintenance & *** pobs is not worth.

1.Car should be faster compared to the wagon R.
2.Has an really good interior quality.
3.Mostly it is for city use and 1 day per week on the highway.
4.Space requirement is for 4 people.
5.Petrol version and the budget is max of 8 L.
7.Only hatch as he has issues with parking.
Automatic i10. Your uncle will love you for this suggestion.
