I was referring that Aveo would be better than the new Accent as per the article in Autocar.

However for Aveo vs Fiesta ... the autocar verdict and so is mine after driving Aveo and Fiesta both is that Fiesta does beat Aveo in terms of best gearbox and more smooth engine but Aveo is not that far behind in these 2 aspects and in other factors obviosuly beats Fiesta .....

My choice Aveo which i own .... others can buy what they find better as per their needs and thats what i did mention at the end in my earlier post.

Cheers.
Ok, Fine,Got it! And any way, I like both Fiesta and Aveo more than Accent.

While your decision is certainly wise, Please remember that there is always something new on the horizon when you are out in the market. Fiesta and aveo are both really good cars and maybe Verna is better but then

1. You will be waiting for 5 months more atleast to get the car. No viable
2. Verna will be newly launched and Fiesta and Aveo will drop their price tags by a few thousand to compete.

The Final decision still rests on you.

Verna petrol may not create a buzz but would certainly have waited for verna diesel varient to enter Indian markets.

Haven't i seen this before on this forum.

After all the "This is good, that is bad, this is slow, that is fast" it all comes down to that one last post that says, "You know what......I just went and got myself a Honda today". Hehe.

Congrats dude!!!

Honda kharido, "Verna" pachtaoge.

Yeah true Honda hi Kharido 'Verna' pachtana hi padega... Verna is going to be a hit in CRDi only as Hyundai petrol accent also does not give good mileage... it is only the CRDi which is a hit with mileage like 17-18 KMPL... As i had closed on buying only a Petrol car... Waiting 4 it had no meaning....

HONDA is the best names as of now... so all those confused make a wise decision and get yourself a HONDA....

It appears that for the same price, Verna is going to give whatever was missing in NHC. Like Beige interiors (Gxi has it but is more costlier than Verna which will give it at lower price), ABS, High Ground Clearance, Smoother Ride, More Power, Probably 1 - 1.5 kmpl lesser than NHC, As Large or more than NHC, Probably more contemporary styling than the spaceship like NHC (Not ZX to some extent). It is really strange that inspite of all things missing in NHC it is a best seller.

In future however with Petrol Prices rising like crazy, NHC's and other pertrol cars future remains to be seen. People in the US have already started to think in this direction. Many do not hold as many vacations as they used to do due to rising prices. India would soon follow.

Honda knows it, that is why it is looking at alternate sources like Hybrid and Fuel Cells etc.
