I am glad that I could talk you out of the idea to buy a baleno. Although great engine, and most ppl in this forum like it, its mainly because we dont have many options in this segment. But like I said, its like buying an old new car. So good decision, let us know how things go.

yeah and the engine has also lost out 4hp's now. But still dont forget that it is a tried and tested product at a VFM price.

you are looking at Fusion but Fusion sales have not really taken off and resale will be a problem here too.

The main point here is that each car has its plusses and minueses. You need to put your need and requirements before each car to decide if it is suitable for you or not.

look at the petra.1.6 is a screamer with good ride quality and the engine is pretty refined. resale will be low but so will be your purchase price. weigh in all the factors before the purchase

ford fiesta 1.6 is not as refined as say lancer,city or baleno. But is is pretty good overall.

I wouldnt recommend the chevrolet avero in front of these two cars.

and if you are looking for a tried and tested product then baleno and lancer are pretty good cars too. But I would recommend the lancer for its smooth and regined engine. Baleno has lost its power advantage but is better VFM. lancer resale is higher.

my conclusion would end at fiesta 1.6

Thumbs up Decided !

Hi,

Finally the search for my new car came to an end today and I have zeroed in on the Fiat Adventure 1.6 Sport.
I found the car to be awesome after taking a test drive.

I would like to thank all the fellow bhpians for their valuable unbiased opinions and reviews which had a major impact on my decision making process.

I just hope the car lives up to my expectation !! which i am sure it will.

I will be getting the delivery after 23rd April 2006 as I will be out of town next week.

Model Fiat Adventure 1.6 Sport
Color Ferrari Red
Price 6 L OTR

Will post more after I get the delivery.

Congrats on your new car, this car reminds me of Volvo V70, and looks really mean. I wouldnt hesitate to buy this car, if Fiat brand image improves and they come out with a cosmetic upgrade, as I find the exterior and the interior a lil old.... Good choice nonetheless, enjoy your wheels.... and post some pics soon.

Couldn't agree with you more .

Ps-Aseem, 2 smileys are a serious no-no in TBHP, i suggest you edit your post immidiately inorder to avoid a warning from the mods. Don't take it too seriously coz its just a suggestion.

Cheers

No offense taken .. Just two points :
1. I wasnt the one going baleno baleno anyways .. I also suggested one member a CRDI viva over the baleno .. What does that mean ??

2. We all love our cars , and at some point u must understand that posting about ur hatred for the baleno on every thread possible doesnt help .. That too coming from u who used to advocate MB all over a few months back ..

Anyways having said that i must say we all have made our views pretty clear about the baleno .. Maybe we must let the topic RIP for a while .. If u still wish to continue , i will have to restort to " Yes baleno is outdated , horrible looking , blah blah .. But we still love it funda " .. I have done my bit .. I shall stop this argument before the mods and the other senior members get on me for this ..

Default Last minute change!!

Hi Guys
I ended up with the Ford Fusion + with ABS (Black) instead .
got it for 6.6 lakhs ON Road with approx 9K accessories and 2 year TMP inclusive.A deal which i just couldnt let go.
and just one word to describe the Car - "AWESOME".
had to let go of the fiat adventure beacuse of the future *** worry.
nevertheless i am very happy with the new acquisition.
planning a long trip soon, will post pics then.

Nice deal Netarchie ! Fusion is a good car. But I wouldnt take the call on the Fusion over the Adventure. To each his own, I guess.

Take care of your new baby - post some pictures in the garage .

Have fun.

Since the decision has been made and the car delivered - I think this thread has reached its end.
