You dont want to go for an Esteem - so looks like the choice is Accent. Both are good in power and maintenance. Esteem gives better FE, while Accent would have more space and better interiors and is a bigger car.
Now, you have to decide.

Friends9811.
Why are you zeroing down on the the ESTEEM LXI???? Why not a Esteem VXI??? It still would be cheaper than the Accent GLE by 30-40k.

Also in the Esteem VXI, you get better interiors in terms of much better door pads than the LXI, Rear centre armrest, Fog Lamps, Power Antenna, Body coloured door handles/OVRM's, Rear Spoiler, Height adjustable drivers seat. All these features would be absent in the Accent GLE

Performance wise, the Esteem definately is a better performer with a more refined engine which can be revved upto 6.5k RPM against the 6k RPM mark of the Accent GLE.

Accent has better interiors coz of the Beige scheme. It has slightly more leg room than the Esteem at the rear. Back Seats of both cars are not great though the Accent has a better one than the Esteem .

Maintenence wise, i guess both Esteem and the Accent are nearly equal in terms the money spent during regular seervicing and spare parts cost also is pretty much the same. Maruti has a better network of A** compared with Hyundai but Hyundai is fast catching up.

FE of the Esteem is better than the Accent GLE.

I am suprised you dropped the Ikon Flair from your list coz i feel it is as good as both the other cars you have mentioned.

Anyways, i would suggest you test drive all 3 cars and then deciede. All 3 cars are past their prime and are sure to be replaced sooner rather than later.

Take care and good Luck!

Well they charged these for the Windshield washing liquid and the labor cost for that which does not come under the free service scheme. But certain dealerships wont be charging for that too.

It's a good and practical choice. Make sure you dont drive very harsh during the first 5000 kms to obtain maximum FE as well as a long lasting engine. Applies to every car not only to Accent in fact.

Well, usually the running-in period is 1000kms - atleast for Maruti cars as per their manual. I am not sure about Hyundai. When my friend got a Santro, we searched the whole manual for any mention of running-in, but did not find anything. Does you Accent manual mention 5000kms of running-in ?

Yes i guess its 5000 kms. But got a doubt when you asked specifically. Will check again. But I think they've adviced in the manual not to do harsh braking for the first 5000 kms. Will have a check once again...

I think hard braking is not advised for the first 500 kms and not for the first 5k kms. Correct me if i am wrong

No you're right. I was wrong, sorry. Referred the manual. It's written that the running-in period is 1500 kms and should avoid over revving (keep below 2500 to 3000 rpm) and to use gear freely (avoid knocking) during this period. Harsh braking should be avoided for the first 800 kms rather than the 500 kms you've mentioned.

What color you've taken? It'll look sporty if you paint the door handles, waist mouldings and rear view mirrors body colored. I just mentioned, its your personal taste.

All the best!!!!!Have a wonderful time....

Hi buddy,

A few questions I want to know the answer for:

1) Are you looking for a Hatchback or a Sedan?

2) Since you daily drive is 80 kms, I feel the car would be a Diesel engine or you want a petrol?

Find the price list for the Hatchbacks (Ex-Showroom Delhi)
Want To Buy New Car ----- Plz Suggest-hatchback.jpg

Find the price list for the Sedans (Ex-Showroom Delhi)
Want To Buy New Car ----- Plz Suggest-sedan.jpg

Source: Official Test & Review's of Team-BHP.

If you want a Hatcback:
1) i20 Sport
2) Swift ZXi
3) Polo (If you can stretch your budget) - Looks fab in the hatchback segment.

If you want a Sedan:
1) Honda Amaze
2) Maruti Dzire
3) Toyota Etios or Chevrolet Sail.

Cheers,
Anurag.

80 kms daily drive means you should go only for a diesel car with the ever increasing fuel prices. With a budget of 6.5L OTR there is only one car that fits your requirements of being a spacious, fun to drive, has ABS/Dual Airbags, ICE with BT connectivity for phone too, steering controls for audio etc. If you haven't already guessed then the car I am talking about is the Figo Diesel Titanium. It will nicely fit in that 6.5L budget.

If you need to buy a Sedan then you will have to increase your budget.
