So did you finally decide?
Looking at your posts here are your options:(Delhi prices)
Optra(8.5 on road approx)
Elantra Petrol(9 on road after discount)
Elantra Crdi(10 on road after discount)
Corolla(10.5(?) on road after discount)

As for the octy i also couldn't fit into it properly(I am 6'2").

Oh okay. Never got the squeak on my car. I just have a rattle from the rear seat. I guess it does not lock properly. This problem is there only on bad roads however.

I also plan to upgrade. Skoda is choice number 1, but that will happen after 5 years. LOL. I have just started out.

42"? Software jobs are bad for health. LOL I am cutting mine down. Was 38" down to 36".

hang in there @DRC .. ACI July issue mentions a new Ford to be launched soon .. prob in the 7/8 L range ..

going by the current trend new releases might give you 'more car for the same price' relative to existing ones ..

Or why not the Endeavour .. surely that'll accomodate 42" ?

Go for the Innova. XXL deserves an XXL vehicle, and you wont regret the purchase.

Dude,
The Skoda is a car with a top class engine but aweful space. Apparently, they concentrated so much on their Boot(big enough to fit an elephant) that they forgot about the inner space.

The Octavia II as they call the new version is bigger in dimension than the current version.
Didnt get much pictures of it. Have a look at this one pic showing the interiors. Seriously looks good (IMHO).
This could be launched above 14L against Mondeo, Accord etc.,[IMG] errr cant insert pics!

Text about the Octavia in the UK website!

The What Car? 'Small Family Car of the Year 2005' now has air conditioning as standard across the entire range, and alloy wheels as standard on the Ambiente model. Of course, we can't say that the Octavia's now perfect. But, with prices starting from 10,990 RRP, we can hint at it with significant head nodding and raised eyebrows.

Octavia small car for them!

What's wrong with an Innova? Seems like the perfect solution to your question!
