but perhaps, like all marines, krieg is also quite well-built and would like loads of space inside the car to be comfortable
and these two are the only 'spacious' options in this segment

Marine, I think the Marina TDI is great VFM. You get space, comforts and the like for ~6L.

whew!!this is a great forum..never xpected so many replies!!
nywaze,i'm still undecided as to wat to buy...
i'd never considered the baleno,as its design is so drab,but now with ppl puttin a word in for it,i think i'll go have a look at it.
i'm also gonna use my car for long distance drives..i've toured the whole of rajasthan in my maruti 800 ..
I've also considered other cars..Indigo marina is still in the fray...aveo and fiesta aren't available in the CSD,and their cost was commin close to round 6'70 6 '80(cant remember clearly....)so if i can get a city for the same price(or lesser than it),i guess the city might b a better option..
Suspension and good ground clearance are also important factors,since i dont knoe which godforsaken place i might b posted to next.

WARNING: Innocent people like you who went to just "have a look at Baleno" have never returned with any other car...

Well it depends on usage. Everybody has different opinions.
FE / Ruggedness / Easy spares / less pain when car gets dents = Indigo
Also low resale value = Indigo

Stylishness / Decent FE / Upmarket looks / Refined Engine / On Road Presence / Great and light years ahead Interiors / Highest resale value = City ZX
Besides at the Auto Expo 2006, some pics were taken by me :-

Hi Since you say you were dissatisfied with the decision of buying a M800, I suggest that before you finalize on the Indigo you might wanna take a look at this thread

Protest against TATA MOTORS

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ta-motors.html

I have talked to my friend who used to work for Car India & he says that any Tata vehicle especially a Indigo which they had got for a special feature started making squeky noises from its dashboard & other places.

The Indigo is never an option for those looking a sedan. It is for those people with hatchback budgets who find the price too tempting (like us ). The City is a far better car. Also take a look at the Baleno/Fiesta TDCi, the former for budget thrills and the latter for FE.

My vote goes to City NHC amonst your choices. You may not need the FE of Indigo Diesel as you might mostly do city rounds and not heavy mileages. In all other aspects NHC is ahead of indigo. Also you would like to retain your car for 5+ years. As everyone says NHC is the equivalent of Maruti 800 in maintanence costs

You will not regret it once you have bought it. It is only the initial barrier of high price that you have to cross. Once that is done you will enjoy every bit of it. Sure it wont outdrag a Baleno, will not be as cheap as an Indigo, but hey it is a Honda. You can rest easy. Of that I am sure. Nice choice of car.

For godforsaken places go for the indigo. It will survive more abuse and abuse related repairs are cheap. And make sure you go for a diesel indigo if you want piece of mind.
Also Honda dealerships are rarer than Tata ones.

My Indigo used to have solid abuse-related repairs. Every time something broke, we used to abuse the Tata guys for selling junk.
