Voted for Santro. It is a good city car, with a refined engine and decent milage.

Today saw ad in TOI saying Spark comes with free insurance and MP3 player wow already offers started on Spark. Now its good buy because I felt Spark is overpriced . Now with upto 35,000/- savings on Spark its good buy!

Regards,

Ravi.

Chevy it is. latest, compact, reliable, spacious and very comfortable ride. Add 3 year maintenance plan from GM and it becomes the best buy.

35,000 savings so soon? Any idea of the sales figures?

The car is not even out in our part of the world! Showroom guys were saying it'd out by 2nd week of this month.

I'm in..

Went to the showroom two weeks back. Place was deserted and they didnt have a car for display. One sales guy was in the showroom (only 1 ), and he said car will be available in August.

So, when going?

I voted for Wagon R, for me it had to be among wagon R and Santro. I could vote to only one, so voted for waogn R. Why is not Swift Lxi included in the list. Its also under 4.5 lac.

Guys, give him a break!
He has mentioned that he was shifting house or something, and had to take heavy loads with car fully loaded most of the time.
Mileage can be confirmed only after testing one time time, and i am sure Nimz would update us on that.

I think he was sticking to the Autocarindia poll. Also Swift is perceived to be in the Getz/U-VA segment.

I prefer the Xeta. Roomier, maximum torque in its class, lots of "potential".

@MODS: Can you move this thread to What Car forum? I guess it is right forum for this discussion.
