Default 10L (ish) auto option?

My Uncles just come back from the U.S and is gnna stay in mum for good.. (i guess) hes looking for sumthing in the 10L ish bracket... maybe pushing it to 12.

now, the car has to STRICTLY BE AN AUTO... i have'nt personally driven any autos in that bracket...so have no real clue bout em....
pour in your options!

1)FE is'nt too much of an issue
2)Should be comfy
3)His wife drives too...so should be on the "easier to drive" side
4)Does the Cedia come with an auto option?

thanx

If u push ur budget upto 12, then the Skoda and the Corolla also come into play.

Cedia does not come with an automatic option right now. You could consider the Corolla .

NHC CVT is quite good. You will save some money as well...

within 10 lacs you cannot get anything better than the invecs. corolla and skoda will be more expensive and are better cars but the auto in lancer scores more.

Its as fast as a nhc vtec and FE aint bad too.

A member has just bought the car and he is also getting good FE of around 10.

The only downside would be the dated design but the car is comfortable, still good looking and still handles well.

ask him for more feedback and he can help you out here.

The invex is a dated design but fast.
The NHC CVT is excellent (we have 3 in our family) for under 9L.
The Corolla G is more than 12L.
The Skoda Auto is only available in Diesel I think and is above 12L too.

If he values performance get the Invex
If he wants a easy car to drive the CVT or Corolla G depending on his budget.

Plus, both CVT and Corolla are a lot more comfortable as well, and have loads of space, and best in class interiors. And, would be cheaper to maintain, provide great FE and command high resale value.

I would perhaps say, wait for the Civic, have a look and then decide.
