I also test drove i10 asta and even, it's pretty good. There is around 1.5Lacs difference between i10 asta and i20 asta.
But, when I took my mom to see if she is comfortable in i20, she felt bit difficult in getting into the car and comingout (she is obese and has knee problem).
So, I am thinking to go for i10, as she feels bit better (earlier, we were using santro).
Now, I am stuck between i10 and i20. We all liked i20, but mom is not comfortable in i20. Dealer says that it takes a while for mom to adjust to low seats in i20 as she has been sitting in santro. Is this correct?
Shall I still go for i20 hoping that mom would start used to that? or go for i10?
I am looking for all your inputs and I need to decide as early as possible.
I10 vs I20: think the chioce goes to you mother & how she gets adjusted with.If she is a frequent traveller then I10 else I20.

you could also check out fiat grande punto and tata indica vista. buy these at your own risk, the A.S.S. horror stories of tata and fiat dealerships are all over the forums.

Hi Rohan, Thanks a lot for your the details. You have answered all my queries and I will go-ahead with i10 Asta. I will not dare to touch tata-fiat dealers.
Thanks again for your help.

I heard Hyundai is launcing the 1.4 litre pertol and 1.4 litre diesel vairants of I20 on 07th July 09. You might wait for some more time and test them too.

Hey, before going for i20, Ritz or Swift; you may check Fiat Grand Punto & also Tata Indica Vista.

My choice would definately narrow down b/w the Punto and the Ritz, since the Swift is dated and i20 doesnt have the 1.5 Getz engine. So for city driving Ritz or Punto it would be.

Default Prefer the Ritz any day !

Like mentioned in the majority of the posts Punto and Vista are great cars but TATA/FIAT after sales service is Deplorable,Its a pity because both cars are much better than their Korean and Japanese counterparts in bulid and driveblity,Moreover Maruti has service centres even in very small towns which most other companies including Hyundai doesn't have.My decision would be go for the Maruti Ritz Petrol better value....

So actually looking at your opinions, if my monthly driving is say 800 kms and I wish to opt for a diesel car would that be a bad idea? Knowing that customers have to pay a premium price for buying diesel will it have any ill effects to the car is my driving is less that 1000 kms?

Default Which latest car do u suggest to buy?

Dear All.

I am looking out for a latest car to buy. Currently i own a Hyundai i10. I wish to buy my second car in the price range of 6-8 lakhs. I am looking for a car from the recent launches like the i20 or Honda Jazz. What do you guys suggest? I have heard a new car called Manza is also slated to be launched this month. Any idea how would the car be? I came across the teaser website during my random car search
Manza - Look forward to a new level of indulgence

By the looks of it, the interiors look pretty appealing. Please post in your replies if any other car is about to hit the Indian roads as well.

What are requirements of the second car? Long drives or City driving? If its for highway look at diesel cars/hatches with space options.

Jazz definitely has space. Not sure on highway performance. Punto diesel is very good for long drives, but again not sure on space options. Comments welcome.
I would suggest the Fiesta diesel.

Well again if the car is for city and budget allows, Jazz will be a good bet. Both on space and practicality. i20 Magna is VFM.

The link which u sent suggests that the new Indigo is the Manza. The company has kept it a well guarded secret. News is around that it is from the Tatas. However, i have heard that even Dzire is coming up with new modifications. It could be that too. I came across the first advertisement of the Manza in TOI pg 9.
