Arrow Hello everyone...

Hey... i'm aveek from B'Lore. I drive a Honda City 1.5 and a Palio 1.2... I am planning to buy the new Civic when it comes out... don't have nearly enough time to drive around tho... and traffic here is annoying. meanwhile, has anyone done thru the paces with a Fabia? its coming here next year... another prospective buy, and i would appreciate some first hand experience from someone...

Hey aveek welcome to team bhp.

The fabia will be a good buy, but the civic will be better in my opinion.
Take a test drive of both vehicles one after the another...n see which you like better...im guessing civic will be the choice.

hey aveek

welcome aboard

the fabia and the civic will be two different classes of cars. the civic will (s)mother the octavia, the corolla and prolly the 1.8 optra, while the fabia will do that to the already dead lancer, and the 1.6 optra.

is that the old honda city or the new one?

Everyone, thanks for the Welcomes and the views on the cars... much appreciated. V1p3r, its the 2nd body Honda(in my opinion the best looking one) - the previous International Civic, basically.
Jaggu... so I'm guessing that you settled here too... hehe...
Drifter, ya planning to do that... chances are it'll be the Civic anyways... but the Fabia as a second car would be fun, especially as I'd mod. that, not the Civic...
