Accent CRDi far far ahead of Ikon 1.8 D. Ikon D is under powered vehicle and which is prone to maintenance issues. With Accent you need to take care of purity of deisel. A slightly adulturated deisel will cost you a lot. A big minus point Accent is rear space.

Accent CRDi has a very good resale value.

The elentra is a great car once you have come to terms with its looks (or rather stop looking at the front ) Our elentra (petrol though) has clocked 20k kms and has left every one impressed. Very comfortable and cheap to maintain. Not to mention the discounts yuo would get.

Hi,

Just took a ride of skoda. Nice car but back is really not as good as Elentra. Elentra got Aiws. Though We got the quotations for both the cars. and Elentra crdi is costing us same as skoda. So we preferring to go for Features, safety and comfort rather that looks.

How come the Elantra costs the same as the Skoda? When I took quotes from Cochin the Elantra was 10.42 on-the-road (insurance free) while the Octavia Ambiente was 11.69 on-the-road...check again, dude.

Mods please move Abhibh's query to another post, please. LEts not confuse the two discussions.

Hi,

Steer. I have got a quote from hyundai dealer of RS. 11,25,678 and Skoda Ambient is costing me 11.50 lacs so it almost the same. Both include free insurance. Though the skoda dealer was my dads classmate.
