Sure...it's perfectly legal and is available quiet easily in a aplace like Mumbai. Bangalore, I'm not too sure of the availability aspect. Will cost you around 23K for conversions and at 26 bucks per kg, is a gr8 alternative fuel option. PM me if you need more details.

Elantra will keep you happy. Though Fiesta is a great car, but it lacks adequate grunt for highway driving. Also the price difference is not much as you can have a fully loaded crdi for 9.4L on road or less.

Elantra is worth its money. I never sat at the back though.
I guess that's a wrong comment. Verna's gonna be in a new segment...b/w accent and elantra.

Elantra does haev more space at rear than a Fiesta. Fiesta 1.4 @68bhp WTF; shame on ford.

And, he said he dont want a Skoda as he would be driven around ( read..he sits at the back most of the time). Read his post and post, intead of confusing him and others.

fiesta w 1686 length 4282 wb 2486
elantra w 1725 length 4525 wb 2610

That's right. At least, my knees stick more in the air in Elantra rear seat than in Fiesta rear seat (keep the front passenger seat maximum forward). And to feel the getting in and out comfort try to get in and out of Elantra (feels like you were sitting on your haunches and you are getting up from there) after trying in Ambassdor rear seat or some SUV front or Indigo rear/front seat. You will immediately notice the difference. And then try again to compare Fiesta and Elantra.

And also his choice is based purely on economics and rear seat. Fiesta is the cheapest to buy and to run (I don't know about maintenance cost).

But if you are comparing on the basis of VFM or the power of CRDi, that is you are in front seat, then Elantra would have been my choice.
