Staying in South Delhi with open parking out on the street, that too with everyone in the neighbourhood buying newer cars and fighting over parking space; buying a compact hatchback to ease in a probable space we earmarked for parking was one of the prime factors in our decision making.
Add to it the parking pressures at office space during busy hours, and I feel really grateful for not having to worry about a boot space while slipping in my car everyday!!!

I have voted a no for now. I didn't consider parking as an issue while buying a hatch. I personally like hatch. in my apt I have space for a sedan and I don't see a reason for second car yet, so for me atleast as of now- its no.

In 2006 when i got my Santro parking was not at all a decision factor, but come 2012 adding one more vehicle to my garage parking space availability will surely be considered.

My parents stay in a nice old bungalow in Chennai, enough space (almost) to park 2-3 buses So parking was not a consideration when I lived with my parents

My current parking space in Bangalore is atrociously small, the lane itself is tiny. That was one strong reason why I went in for a hatch

The public parking spots in Blore are also seriously cramped. Don't know how people go for those massive SUVs when there is no public space
