Default Elantra CRDI @ 10L OTR??

Fellow BHPians..!



I have an Accent CRDI - 3 yrs old.. in the market for a change. I also wanted ONLY a diesel car - Running costs. I have hardly had to spend n the Accent other than the filters and oil (that too after the free services). So far so good!

Did a little bit of digging - admittedly across segments - and found the following.

1. OCTAVIA - LEG SPACE - My knees hit the dash even with the seat fully back - Would have gladly traded some of that CAVERNOUS boot to liberate some parking space for us humans. Did NOT get a test drive so no idea how it rides- Got a LOT of attitude from the salesman - if the smirk on his face is indcative of a 12 lac buying experience, then the aftersales & service has to be scary. (owners pls tell me this is an aberation and not the rule) . Rider the only thing within budget - The Laura is very very very tempting -... sighhhhhhhh

2. FIESTA TDCi - Got the test drive - Good ride, refined engine decent handling. BUT found the engine a little short of breath -(me being used to the CRDI and all) .

3. INNOVA - Big People mover - the G5 is more expensive than the Corolla!.. Loads of room - engine is adequate for the size. Noting to set anything on fire. Handling very good for its size and setup.

4. LANCER - Dealer tells me they have discontinued the diesel!

5. ELANTRA CRDI : Droped in since I have been reading about price drops etc. They have quoted around 10 lacs OTR ( around 8.9 lacs ex-showroom for the CRDI ! That's ABS with BAS & EBD, Traction Control, Twin Air Bags with passenger sensor, Trip Computer (rudimentary), etc etc, PLUS FULL STANLEY LEATHER TRIM.

Personal thoughts? Looks :( .... but Unbelievable value for money

How would this car with a set of Pirelli 6000's or Dunlop 9000's + Petes Box + K&N replacement filter be?... We can throw in some KONIs at some point (working on the setup)

What say all you folks... Do I go ahead???

Pls help!

Sujit

Dont think that after owning the Accent Crdi , U would be able to settle for anything less than the Elantra.

Sujit,
The Ex-Showroom price quoted in Hyundai site is, Rs. 10,29,188 for Elantra CRDi, in coimbatore. How come you are getting such a great price?

Dude,

Dont even think about it....just go in for the elantra! even without the price cuts, it was by far the best diesel under 15 L in the country, now it is even more tempting

CONAN : This is a scheme being run by the manufacturer /dealer combination... The CRDI is not being advertised but the GTi (the new stipped down version) is. If you want the leather trim its 30 K more that price ont he website. (Its beige only though - but it comes factory fitted)

TSK : ... It is available in Delhi also... How do I know this??-- I asked dealers in other states to compare prices.. all of them gave me similar prices - difference only in the road tax and regn costs etc. So far cheapest in Kerala @9.80 OTR

RAO GAARU : what milage are you getting?

Get the Elantra, no doubt. Best VFM and ver low running costs compared to the other big luxury cars.

And with the K&N filter, the Pete's box n all it'll simply fly! Its already powerful enough, but more is always good right

Elantra CRDI is a great VFM @ 10 lakhs. It comes fully loaded and with all the safety features that you would ever want. Only thing is the front grille.. But I guess you can get rid of it and get a custom wire mesh grille instead like this -> elantragtclub.tripod.com/elantra/id5.html. BTW, cool site on Customised Elantra's

Bit OT, Any idea on how much would a used 2 year old Elantra CRDI cost? Not that there are many around.. just hoping.
