No doubt Baleno Lxi (with Most positive points and lesser negative points) thats why bought one on Sunday.
Car is meant for movement not for decoration if u do not feel good while driving than every things is waste including interior. So chalao to jano tab bolo

You have to drop it only and inch off the bottom, else there will be an almighty clang!
you should try and lift the corsa hood then and the doors are a bit too heavy for the old people in the family ..

Oh ..incase anyones wondering who voted for the 1.4 Corsa ..its me .. I simply love it ..1.6 is within the 6lakh range too ..

it's a no brainer.

At the price at which Baleno is available it's the best thing for your hard earned moolah.. Excellent value..

It can seriously undercut many cars in the 6-7Lakh range also..

FOr me the only contender to the baleno is the NHC, but even then the Baleno is more than a LAkh cheaper..So Baleno it is!

Does the Baleno fit under 6 on-road ?
Anyways if I were to buy one, I would probably go for the Petra/Indigo
(although I like the Icon too)
Actually if my budget was 6 I would rather stretch it and go for an Optra/NHC really....

Atleast in Bangalore that is not true. Petra used to be 1 lac cheaper than Baleno. Even with the latest price cut(insurance free and Rs. 28,000 worth accessoriesoffer) for Baleno , Petra offers much better VFM according to me.

Petra for me too. I think the Baleno is much costlier than the Petra, atleast in Mumbai.

Its Baleno for me, not just because it has good performance but also other factors like VFM, FE, build etc are there.

Thumbs up Give a look to TATA Indigo GSX/SX

Hi, i did my research on all cars and indigo is the more balanced car in every terms. If you are looking for every aspect. Comfort, FE, looks, safety and low maintenance.

It does in places like Delhi, chd ,Haryana ,Punjab etc..

In Chd and Delhi you can get it for 5.5-5.6L OTR.


Even in Bangalore most dealers are offering 30K cash discount and 10K cash discount for corporates. All this clubbed with free insurance..

Dunno abt Mumbai..

This is funny. We recently had another poll on same topic, where Petra and Baleno tied up. (Well! To be precise, Petra was up by 2-3 votes ) This poll is again heading the same way. What is the purpose?

I would like to vote for the baleno too, but because of my 3000/month running its indigo.
