Hey bro,
welcome aboard. Enjoy your stay here.
try out the Petra, Ikon 1.6/1.3.
The corsa is outdated and the Indigo no fun to drive.

welcome aboard the forums. See for a petra 1.6

WHile Ikon is a drivers cars some of its ergonomics are not good. For eg the power window buttons are too low to my liking.

Petra is a better family car and more robust and stronger too. fiat will also offer you discounts and give freebies.

hynudai with abs makes more sense as it is a practical car and comes with ABS.

select between a petra(check if dealer has abs and airbags option) or a accent with ABS.

baleno and corsa are just too outdated.

also look at the lancer. With the price revision of 90K it makes good value at 6.59

Welcome 3F3F ... this is a great place to be .

But I really think you should respect the rules of this forum and post your questions in the appropriate forum.

You may require 50 posts to do so .. but I think thats justified ..cause we all contribute and we all grow ... together !

Welcome to the Forum,
I would suggest an Esteem. Easy to maintain on the Baroda roads. If you are looking for a more powerful version and looks are secondary then a Baleno would be wise option
