My vote is for cedia.

No used Cedias = The current owners dont want to sell

Less number of Cedias on road = Exclusivity.

I am booking a black cedia select after test driving, Fiesta, City, Aveo, Verna, Optra, Corolla and Innova . Civic looks good but not worth the price. Skoda petrol is anyway not a good choice

Nothing stood out like the Cedia.

Cedia, Cedia & Cedia, if you are an enthusiast. The cedia has its good looks far better than a lot of contemporaries & a great powerful engine too.

Cedia. But the Sport version, not the Select.

NHC Vtec is a good car, but is fidgety at high speeds and handling is average at best.
I'm not big on brand value... so Honda vs Mitsubishi doesn't bother me much.
The only thing that would keep me away from the Cedia is the HM A.S.S which is downright pathetic. Honda, though not the best are eons ahead (at least in Cal).

Anyway. Heart over head once again shuvc. Cedia it is

PS: Did I hear someone say Mivec??

Default Cedia

There is no comparing Cedia to City. It is a superior car to City anyday. Even if you would have taken the poll on Civic vs Cedia, I would have said Cedia again.

Golden question: What is a good price to pay for what you get? Remember VFM!

On this count, both City and Civic fail. You get a car as good as Civic for the price of City. Just buy it.

Thats simple, VTEC is targeted at enthusiasts, but the enthusiasts who know (most enthusiasts know), know what to avoid.

If i had the money, Cedia it is!

Not such a big fan of the City, especially with the current equipment levels (even in the VTec)

If you read his post, he's already done a TD of the Cedia. And, just to put things in the correct perspective, he's not buying a car, he's trying to get people's perspective on which is a better car.

Cheers

If it had been an OHC Vtech, then it would have been fun. However, this comparison ain't fair, its more in the Civic range.

Therefore, NHC VTech is no match for Cedia. So it has to be a Cedia for me.

The primary premise of my comparison was based on the fact that the Cedia and the VTec cost the same. From that perspective, IMO it's a fair comparo.

In fact, it's good to see the Cedia priced near the levels of international prices of C+ segment cars. How much does the Civic/Corolla cost in the US ? Ideally it should be priced below 10L here. At least due to competition (and lack of marketshare) we now have Hyundai, GM and HM pricing C+ segment cars at the levels they should be priced at.

Is the price of Vtech and Cedia the same?? I thought there is more than 1 Lakh OTR price difference. I could be wrong here.

In US, Civic and Corolla cost between $12k-15K range.
