tell me which car is perfect.....every car has its own advantages n disadvantages. depends on how we look at it...take a Fiesta and compare its interiors to Aveo..does Fiesta stand any chance?

now take the Aveo1.6 and compare the pick up and power (in reality not on book)with Fusion,...i donot think Aveo1.6 stands any chance...(my personal experience)

next thing the Fusion is now being sold at very less margin which is why u hear negetives straight from the dealers' mouth..now I guess this is quite obvious...

OTR is 6.74lakhs in Hyd due to the heavy road tax (9%) here....In other parts of India, u can get it at around 6.5l...

Default go for the fusion!

just go ahead and book it, i am sure you will not regret it later, i will and have go for the higher end version that is Fusion + ABS as it has higher discount and more VFM.
the car is fabulous, just to caution you and no discourage you, the spares are expensive.

fusion - production stopped, costly service & spares
accent viva - production stopped, costly service & spares (if its a CRDi, very prone to highway fuel)
baleno - maruti (easy on maintanence, easily servicable etc etc), cheaper service, costly spares (only in case of accident)

rest its the most powerful, fun to drive and the best mix for city highway travel.

Not on a permanent basis- they have enough stock - production diverted to meet Fiesta demand.

Hey Sendu,

The Fusion Rocks if you love to rev the car and push push push..No claims for efficiency though..

Should try the Viva CRDi if efficiency is the name of the game and ofcourse

the baleno if neither matter and would like to fly above 140 kmph and not have any feel or control.

I would pick the Fusion..

Cheers

Fusion bulk production is stopped, only on demand is available.
The fusion + model (the middle one) is discontinued. so now only the fusion basic and the Fusion + ABS is available.

Default Was worth waiting for the new Accent

The new accent is getting launched in August with new engines and better in all respects. It's really worth waiting. The initial review on the new CRDi states it will beat in performance cars twice its price.

The 1.6 accent is also getting a new series of engines. 1.4 accent will have an upgraded engine of the current GLE.

Considering the initial reports a test drive of the new accent for new car buyers is very important.
