hi to all, my first posting on this forum
right now i am driving my maruti zen 2004 model and still feel proud in driving that inspite of an older technology. But yes my new car on the roll will be fiat linea but planning to buy next year around june, reason being very simple that right now saving the dough for the same.
now it depends which version i go for, as speculations are there that next year 1.6 lt engine may be introduced by the fiat stable.
On the lighter note i love to possess honda crv but i guess for that will have to wait for some more years

Mid - premium segment hatch (automatic) as an upgrade to our current 2nd car the i10. Expect that to happen only after a couple of years though so can't pin the brand.

Based on current outlook, the contenders could be the Jazz; VW Polo; i20. But I guess its hard to predict what the market will offer at that point.

my "next" car will be my first car! An upgrade from my Pulsar. The ideal choice i would make from my heart will be the Punto. But i will mostly have to settle with a used Zen or a Palio.

I drive an old zen. It has been more than an year now. I suppose all the zen owners face a dilemma. Whenever it scratches its belly or a throws me up over a bad stretch of road, I feel like selling it and buying a bigger car. But right after feeling like that, it manages to bring a smile on my face with its peppyness, lovely steering and great urban manners. I forget the need for a new car! I tell myself I can live with it, nothing is perfect.

I don't really know when I'll be able to resist its charm and buy a new car. If I manage to do that, it'll be a premium hatchback for sure.
