Why dont you consider Ford Fiesta TDCi ? Much more modern Common Rail engine, very refined, good torque for city driving, and more comfortable too. Only thing is that Ford after sales is not as reputed as Hyundai/Mahindra.

And no, Baleno does not come in diesel.

micky, welcome to the forum. there are loads of information available on the net on the prices of various models, why dont you check various websites and get an idea.

secondly, it would be more helpful if you can elaborate your needs, average kms done in a month, is it going to be chauffer driven, would you do long drives... such kind of things...

also would suggest you sift through various forums, as most your questions would have been answered else where.

a micky - Since you want a diesel i am expecting you would be running it a lot. So Petrols are out of the question.

Now The Accent has become a Old car and is expensive at 7.92 OTR.

The best car for you would be a Fiesta TDCI with ABS which would come within your budget. Will be safe, is fresh on the roads and most importantly it will give you amzing milege.

Hey dude dont spread your anti hyundai feelings among tbhp users .Viva crdi is a good option.Also as you have pointed out old lancer diesle is also a good option but as you named it it is OLD.& also its lesser economical than crdi.So i think crdi would be a better option.Sorry for offense dude
