I admire bhp-members for their knowledge and helping attitude. Now I need your help for choosing a car for me.

My criteria’s are—
1—more ride comfort on average Indian town road.
2—lowest noise of tyre friction in cabin.
3—build quality solid,should not be dented on minor thrust.
4----low maintainance cost.
5—seating position should be comfortable, no bending at knee joint—I am 5’ 8’ height.
6—trouble free quality,as service stations are 120 km distances from my place.
7—good resale value after 5 years
My daily running-10 km daily,weekend 100 km, month end 380 km on average road
My budget is up to 7.5 lac.
I want more and more members participation.
Pl. help

I would go with the Honda City GXi/VTEC if you're ok with Petrol considering your monthly usage otherwise the Verna CRDi would be a great option for you.
