With TATA's service, I guess Petra is now back in contention.

Dunno if I would go in for a no looker and an older model when new models are beckoning for the same price....

No offence...

22kmpl in city ? is that for real or did you also measure the FE like someone else did (on his M800) by "looking" at fuel guage.

[SIZE=2]Honda City or the Ford Fiesta... Baleno isnt safe enuf, and looks outdated.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]You can also consider Accent CRDi, its provides performance equivalent to (read better) than the above two but runs on sticky fuel and has better FE too. Fiesta is very very good in the city but is underpowered flat out and will even get whipped by an Indi turbo![/SIZE]

With 70 km/day, you need to rule out all the petrol cars. Fiesta Diesel would be a good choice though you may have to shell out upto 8L. If you can wait for some time, then wait for the new Scorpio and the new Accent (CRDI) to choose from.

Hi,

No it's based on my 1st 1000 km. The first full tank of around rs 1450 diesel made a mark upto 997 almost 1000 km. so that gave me a FE of around 22 i think. So itis based on that.

Thanks

I would recommend the accent crdi or fiesta crdi.

crdi is as good in performance as a petrol, low on maintainence, low on NVH and better in FE.

70kms a day means you need to look at diesels. 6-7 lacs is the budget. Only two diesels sedans fit into that category. Tata Indigo and Fiat Petra. We all know which is a superior car and the only thing against the Petra was poor After sales service back up which has been solved with the alliance with TATA. I would say take a good serious look at these cars.
