karan Go for FIGO
Ford has introduced a new concept called child parts which is first in india (i guess).if your door is dented by accident you need not change whole door instead the outer part alone can be changed .
Also their parts prices have come down drastically.
All the best !

Can I recommend Ritz...(Looks can be subjective)
With Karan’s requirement of ‘Going to do between 3000 to 3500 km per month’—Diesel car is an ideal choice.
Yesterday, I had TD Polo which my friend has recently bought. I will not give my observations with techie details as it is already discussed everywhere. I have just listed down what a simple plain customer will think when he will go with his family and do TD.
1.Excellent new look
2.Good boot space
1.Rough engine, makes lot of sound(May be 3 pot engine??).
2.I found pickup pretty slow.
3.Clutch was pretty tight(May improve during 1st service,but need to bear this for 15k,as per service intervals of Polo)
4.3 people in rear can be tight affair(I would prefer more headroom)
5.Front Ground clearance(Front bumper gets damaged very easily, I have seen that on few Polos!)
6.Large hump in the rear floor area, makes it difficult to sit for middle person comfortably over long journey, Salesperson told me that it is for your safety in case of an accident(I don't know what he means, he could not clarify me either)
CONCLUSION: Sorry to be harsh, but I was waiting for this car like mad dog but somehow disappointed by Polo.
1.Great Price tag,VFM
2.Good space everywhere
3.Subtle looks(though not new,still can live with it,I prefer good interior and comfort when I sit in the car,external looks will take 30% priority for me atleast)
1.Not sure about A*S*S,Ford dealer could not give me price list of spare parts even though I did follow up for 3-4 times.
2.Bumper less design(Almost nonexistent..may have direct impact on engine, radiator...again this is my 1st observation, you may correct me if I am wrong!)
CONCLUSION: I was not ready to buy it because I could not get answers to my questions on maintenance part..thogh I heard Ford is localizing many spare parts to make it cheaper for masses. I am not ready to take chances..so I am out
1.Additional warranty of GM
2.Rear space is big no no for family of 4-5
1.Very less boot space
CONCLUSION: My family did not like the overall look…Too sharp for their taste.
1.Great K-series engine, smoothest and powerful of the lot
1.Different looks??(Subjective…many do not like it!!,I liked it personally)..May not fit in good looks category for some people..
2.Very less boot space
3.Ridiculously thin tyres in L and V versions,can be changed but why not OEM?
CONCLUSION: My family did not like the overall look, but Maruti A*S*S and good engine forced me to consider this option. I felt pretty comfortable when I sit in Ritz.
I did not consider i20 as it was out of my budget,but surely those with heavy wallets can have shot at i20. Overall good car,I feel,but did I hear that it is underpowered??(Weight to power ratio)
