Don't know when India will have a crash test regulations in place.
dude,

while i agree actual crash tests are definitely important, ABS to an extent and airbags to a larger extent certainly offer a better "guarantee". on this forum itself we have quite a few posts where airbags have saved lives.

and then there is just so much crash testing you can do. remember diana ? a lot also depends on the way the car is being driven.

there is such an element as fate.

In my case the co pays for insurance and life tax hence did not find out how much they will cost....I am contactable at 98850-30960. I did go in for 185/65 R 15 Goodyear (Paid 7k in exchange of 5 original ones) and picked up a set of alloys from Ashoka wheels on Ministers road since the designs that Varun showed me were pathetic.

Dipen,
you are talking On road and I am talking ex showroom (On road = ex showroom+Insurance + Life tax) I dont know these amounts since my co pays for these and hence I remember the ex showroom price only.

I perfectly agree...in the US I had a Toyota Camry and a Ford Tauras (on rental as I was staying for couple of months). Camry was very fuel efficient...however, the Tauras had ZERO chasis flex...while you could feel all the speedbreakers in the camry...you did not feel anything in the tauras....the chasis was very rigid.
