I was axually gonna suggest it. A second hand contessa will cost less than a used cielo and with a big 2.4 litre engine plonked under the hood the car can seriously kick some dirt.

Look at what Elantra is coming to after the discounts. Some1 mentioned 1 lac discount.

Otherwise Viva crdi and aveo. Your response about the scorpio is still unclear.

Optra may not be as expensive..in any case there is 2 yrs service free. Also more a car is sold, less expensive would be the spares..

Karthik,

Go in for the Fiesta 1.6 without a second thought. U like a good drivers car hence I am suggesting this one to u over the Aveo. The aveo is plusher but nowhere near as nice to drive as the fiesta. I drove both quite extensively before zeroing in on the fiesta in TVM.

F.E. is around 11 with AC.

@ Himanshu: Karthik's too young to drive (so I hope he doesn't!). In which case, a comfortable, chauffeur car sounds more practical for him and his mother.

or wait 6 months for the new Accent CRDi ..
while you are waiting , invest the 9 lakhs .. maybe if you are lucky you could end up with enough to have the option of Elantra CRDi, new Accent CRDi and Innova.

Obviously u have not met Karthik or seen his driving

Man, u r right, he doesnt drive, he flies in his car.

During our TVM meet last month, he mentioned that he drove down to Kovalam @180 KMPH. I know that the road is very good, but still, 180 is way too much.

P.S. he is a good driver though. Have sat with him once in his Octy, and his car control is quite good. It is a different matter that legally, he should not be within 100 meters of the driver's seat!!

If the GM optra is the same as Lacetti in Korea, I believe this is a very good car to consider.

I really liked the Elantra CRDi for its responsiveness. Petrol will give you a much smoother driver and will get you around 10 kmpl (before first service) for light traffic conditions. However, if you search around this forum, you may many complaining about the low seating and poor underthigh support in the back seat, so you may want to check before you buy. It also suffers from poor resale value (especially for the Petrol) if it is important for you.

If possible, I would suggest you wait for a few months for the new Elantra model to be launched.
