As I see that from your budget point of view you have reached 3.7, why don't you go for a used Ritz lxi/vxi that you can get for 3.8-4. It would be great for your parents for seating, has good engine and good maruti support. Spark is all one of the great cars to own but it depends on if you have a chevy dealer nearby.

i feel you need to select from Maruti stable as you will find better A_SS , will have lot of service stations and local mechanics to manage repairs or regular maintenance. My recommendation will be Alto lx, as its tested, easy to maintain.

I have narrowed down to maruti now. Looking at wagon R ( new model ) , EECO with AC , used ritz ( dont know about the availability ) and used swift petrol .

Better go for the newest, which is the new WagonR. It will retain its value best because it's a new model, and a Maruti. Marutis are gold in Kerala. Popular Automobiles was willing to give 90000 for my 1998 model M800 in pristine condition, in exchange for the new WagonR (which has no exchange bonus, btw).
Also, it's safer, being newer, is available with ABS, and is easy to get in and out of for your parents. Has good leg room at the rear too, and sips fuel. It's also excellent VFM at the introductory pricing (IMO).
