Sorry guys

My only idea of not putting the 1.6 GTX was simply because the car is no longer officially available at the dealer. Its only available to order. If it were still available, hell it'd be there on this list with my tick on it and in my garage as well!

Its prett hard to choose for me too. I eventually went for the Palio NV 1.2, but just because i haven't sat in a getz as yet!

the getz shud be the outright winner here.
the palio may be to some extent a distant second.
but * the indica petrol .
the corsa sail is more cramped than my zen and looks as if the corsa has been chopped .wud buy the corsa only for the superb TID which gives all info abt FE,temp and wat not

TID dosnt gives the FE info... atleast its not there in my sail 1.6. Think this is only available on the limited edition ones... Which has MID(Multi-Info Disply). TID is just Triple Info Display... which mean only date, time and Temp *

Fiat Palio for me... still the best looking, safest and best riding of the bunch. It's also well priced too. The Getz would be a close second.

FE is 10. This is in the bangalore traffic. B-to-B. Mostly travelling in 1-2-3 gears. With A/C on 50% of the time. I use normal fuel with additive.

Last week went on a high way drive. Got 16. Could have been better if i have not pushed it that hard.

How old is your car? Bumper to bumper traffic is everywhere in Bangalore, so it doesn't make much of difference where are you driving.
Normal fuel with what additive? You got 16 km/ltr on highway at what speed base?

Looks like opel as a brand is going to vanish...
Opel bears the brunt of big GM job cuts

I vote for Getz.

Give Getz some time to prove itself. When Santro was launched people talked on the same lines but now Santro is a success story.

Indica is also not bad either.

Palio has future if and only if FIAT imroves its ###.
