Talking Rupees per BHP! Cars with most bang for the buck

Let's start a thread on all the cars available in India to compare price vs power! We are, after all, a bunch of enthusiasts, right?!

For simplicity's sake and for even comparisons, let's only quote the manufacturer's ex-showroom Bombay price, without any discounts or optional extra features. Power in BHP.

I'll start with the A180 CDI, since that is what inspired this thread!

Mods, perhaps we can make a constantly refreshing table in this post so the info is always easily available?

Mercedes A180 CDI: Price 21.93 lakhs ex showroom Bombay. Bhp: 107

Rupees per hp: 20,495/-

How do you plan to take into account the various variants of the same car. my suggestion is to then stick only to the base variant or the top end for every car.

Hyundai Getz GVS Prime CRDi - 110 bhp.
Ex-showroom price Delhi (before being discontinued) Rs. 4.99 lacs. I don't know what was the price in Bombay/Mumbai at that time (June-July 2009).

So, price per BHP - Rs. 4536.36

Excellent thread!

I think it would be more prudent to also list rupees/bhp/tonne instead of just rupees/bhp.

And this might be slightly OT, the recent duke 390 launch got me really excited and I so miss being in India.

Duke 390:
1.8lakh rupees/ 44 bhp / 0.15 tonne ~ 627 Rs/bhp/tonne and 4090 Rs per bhp!!
Now beat that

For cars, we could consider the basic model, as in most cases it is bound to have the least kerb weight and ofcourse price!

An interesting calculation. Here's what I spent

Chevrolet Beat 1.2 PS
BHP - 79.4 (80.5 PS)
Ex-Showroom (when bought) - 343000
Rs/BHP = 4320

I think you should adjust that figure factoring in inflation of prices and deflation in BHP

Default

Nano 2010 : 35bhp @1,20,000/-
So around Rs.3,430/bhp
(I think this is the lowest it can get.)

Interesting thread! Let's take an example of Toyota Corolla Altis top-end GL variant (1.4 D-4D):-

Ex-Showroom price (₹13.75 lakh)
BHP rating (89 BHP)

Hence, Rupee per BHP equates to approximately ₹ 15,499 per BHP (₹ 15,499.43820224 to be precise ).

But, On the other hand, let's take an example of Chevrolet Cruze top-end LTZ variant (2.0 FAM Z Diesel Engine) with Manual Transmission:-

Ex-Showroom price (₹ 14.77 lakh)
BHP rating (164 BHP)

Hence, Rupee per BHP equates to approximately ₹ 9006 per BHP (₹ 9,006.097560 to be precise again )

Interesting, ain't it?

P.S. All prices are taken from Team-BHP reviews.

Keep revvin'

Well, I couldn't agree more - the car cost us Rs. 5.45 lacs on-road in 2009, that will be equivalent to Rs. 6 lacs today (I'm just guessing, not sure), so then the price per BHP goes to Rs.5454.54.

Or..
Or what if I calculate it like this - as of today, the car's value should not exceed Rs. 2 lacs (again, just guessing) and it is still as quick as it originally was so calculating I get - 110 BHP for Rs. 2 lacs - Rs. 1818.18.
