Ford Fiesta 1.4 petrol at 5.69- the 82hp engine is more powerful and FE than a NHC and is cheaper too. maintainence maybe marginally higher and Resale marginally lower but still good. Also look at ford Ikon flair 1.3 if fiesta looks dont inspire you. Ikon flair at 4.69 is absolute VFM.

Chevrolet Aveo 1.4
Rs 5.54 Lakhs (ex-showroom price - Delhi)
1.4 L DOHC 94 PS, 5 speed MT
Chrome Radiator Grille
Wide 185/60 R14 tyres
Pullout Type Door Handle
Two-Tone Beige interiors
Power Steering
Central Lockingv
Rear Defogger with timer
Power Windows
Remote trunk lid opener
Engine Service Soon Indicator

tata Indigo top end will also work nice for you. The one with Dvd, leather, fogs, alloys and stuff.

btw, how any delhi dealerships you have tried before buying your car?
answer it honestly, please!
Well, we wanted a C segment car, test drove Ikon flar,Esteem and Accent.
Finally decided for accent, then for dealers.. we asked quotation from 3 dealers... hans hyundai... rama hyudai and mgf hyundai... almost all of them quoted similar figures, went ahead and bought the car from hans( heard this was the best dealer for hyundai cars in delhi )

nothing else, filled some application.. drove away wid the car.

This is BIG marketing gimmick by GM, this car dosent even have an AC!
overall, this 1.4E is not avaiable in showrooms yet,
the base model is for 5.79L( ex-showroom)

with on-road price for about 6.4L ( again no discounts coz of new car )

central locking, power windows, power steering and no A/c? I cannot digest it.

BTW even at 6.3 on-road both aveo and fiesta make a good choice for a person wanting to spend 5-6 lacs.

otherwise ford ikon and Tata Indigo gsx (dunno the price but should be close to 6 on road) are good options too.

Also look at palio/palio adventure.

hey @friends9811, looks like your requirement is a petrol sedan, to be converted to CNG at a future date. You don't seem to be bothered much about bells-and-whistles. If so, why spend more than 5lacs for fancy performance cars like Baleno, Fiesta etc.
Looks like an Ikon Flair or Esteem would fit the bill perfectly. You should get the Flair or top-end Esteem for 5lacs max (Esteem LX and Lxi would be even cheaper). Flair has newer looks, while Esteem scores on fuel efficiency, reliability and low maintenance. But you say you already have an Esteem. So, Flair seems to be the only option.
BTW, if you already have a sedan, why go for another one ? Why not get the WagonR CNG for your city drives and use the Esteem for pleasure and long drives ? Or, why not convert the existing Esteem to CNG and get a fuel efficient hatch ?

While most will say to go for Baleno. I will suggest you look at Ikon 1.3

Is the only car which is frugal and fun to drive at the same time. spares have come down a lot and you save a lot of money over baleno too.

Is also a newer car than baleno.

I feel its unfair to even compare the Ikon Flair with the Baleno. The Ikon 1.6 served as a true competitor to the Baleno but then its no more available i guess. The Ikon Flair is a good all-rounder and competes well with the likes of the Accent GLE, Esteem Vxi and the Indigo

The Baleno scores over the Ikon Flair in most areas like.
1. Front/Rear Seats.
2. Power.
3. FE is pretty much equal
4. Maruti A** and Service
5. A/C

Friends9811, if i were you i would choose the Baleno over the Ikon Flair.

Cheers

Ikon is cheaper,

Looks much better

Handles much better

Fe is marginally better

Ikon flair is equally Fun to drive even with the weak 1.3

A newer Developed for India Platform comapred to Baleno


each car has its advantages and disadvantages. let the Buyer decide with a test drive and his requirements.
