Thanks for the suggestions and overwhelming response . This is why I was eager to join this great forum.

After driving Zen for 6 years, most of the new hatchbacks seemed to have a little less space than Zen, for the rear seat. I took my family for the TDs and they were bowled over by Vista. U-VA is pretty much out of the equation now. Now, I have find the best dealer around in Faridabad.

Thanks a lot guys for sharing your views and helping me out. Keep revvin' !!!!

Is it the Tayal Motors or someone else?
Do share the experience with the dealer.

Hi,

Actually, that's a big dilemma for me. There are two dealers - Tayal & Triumph. Now, my next question was actually gonna be (in) another thread, trying to checkout which one is a better dealer.

Any one has any experience with any of these dealers in Faridabad?

If we go by the preferences,

1.) Should be comfortable for the rear seat passengers with good space. Should have enough leg room for the rear seat. Comfortable for long drives. (Vista is clear winner)

2.) Peace of mind. Even if not so great A.S.S., I want to be attended properly and get the problem fixed. For eg. I have a Bajaj Pulsar and their service centers are really pathetic. Whenever I went to a problem fixed they didn't fix it properly and moreover added few new problems. I don't want this. (All marutis & getz are equal)

3.) Good ground clearance. (not sure)

4.) Strong and sturdy. I have to travel on some really bad roads. (No marutis at all)

So, going by your preferences, marutis are out (4th option)

Overall its a tough competition between vista and Getz, but vist will win evantually.

I haven't TDed Punto yet. I'll be doing it soon but as I have heard around in the forums Punto's rear seats are a bit cramped.

Hyundai A.S.S is quite good.

Stick to the Vista. i20 could have been good. Punto does not meet either of your criteria.

+1 to that. If you want a spacious hatchback and can do without Airbags & ABS : Vista is your answer.

You should now be thinking about which dealer to go to (and not which car to go for )

btw : I am a little confused here. Is UVA available in diesel ? AFAIK : UVA is not available in diesel

You are thinking about India Vista Quadrajet Aura (which is diesel). So how did UVA make it to the list ?

Hope I am not missing something here.

Default It's Vista

The choice is clear now. The Vista suits all your needs. Its a great VFM package.

Having owned Indica for last 3+ years, I would say the total cost of ownership (fuel, maintenance+labor, spareparts etc) is hardly anything. Car can be serviced anywhere if need be - I didnt need it anytime yet. Its a peace of mind for me. The A.S.S. is fantastic as far as I am concerned.

So dont think; go for it.

Vista is as spacious as a Hatch can get and at that price it is absolute VFM.

The i20 is a bit on the higher side of my budget :(.

U-VA just made it to the list based on space. Actually, I didn't knew much about this car and thought of asking your opinion on this car. BUt, yeah its out of the equation already.
