I think Optra 'gas' is a CNG, we dont have CNG outlets in Hyderabad. :(

The petrol should have a price advantage of 1.5 lakhs over the deisel to match the fuel bills advantage of a deisel car. (we will own the vehicle for around 60,000km to 70,000 km)
Hence for a deisel car, the budget can be 8.5 lakhs and for a petrol car its 7 lakhs. Had there been few outlets for CNG here in Hyderabad, we could think about the Optra CNG and a budget of 8.5 lakhs to CNG car as well.

NHC ruled out by my dad even for a test drive. He says, he doesnt want to be seen around in a big 'rodent' like car.

Among both aveos, it is better to go for 1.4LS, as 1.6 is not as good as it should be.
Can you be more specific whether there are any problems for Aveo 1.6 when compared to Aveo 1.4. On the Fuel Economy front, i think the difference is around 1 or 2 km. Apart from this, anyother drawbacks??, please let me know. The price comparision between 1.4 and 1.6 has been given in my previous post.
I just want to know about the A.$.$ of Chevy and their attitude towards their customer.

hope it didnot confused you anymore.
We dont mind if the baleno spares will be available for another 5 or 6 years.
I too felt the verna is not comfortable as the indica in the driver seat regarding the space, but would like to decide that after a proper test drive.
I am no more confused, because I am now pretty clear about my requirements.

Thumbs down NewHondacity/Verna CRDI.

Petrol: car better go for NHC which server you better for 5y...and also have a good resale value..Good classy car with all the features u r looking for.

Diesel: better choice was Accent CRDI..now its getting pahsedout...
hope u can go for VERNA crdi...which has latest upgraded engine...

Ford fiesta is good looking but very expensive for maintainance...can't rely on it to sever for 5y...when spares are concern...similar to IKON..as ford vehicle phase out very fast...when compared to Hyundai.

Remember u r spending 8 lacs and it should be worth of it.

Hi,
I own a Aveo 1.6. You are correct on the FE part. The difference is not more than 2kmpl. I currently get something like 10.5-11 after pretty hard driving most of the times. And as far as A.$.$ is concerned, I believe GM has been particularly good on this front (I was surprised, considering all the stories I read on its peer Ford's A.$.$). Very satisfactory and responsive (here in Kolkata).

To summarize....for your specific requirements, the Optra 1.6 looks ideal. Spacious, comfortable family car, decent A.S.S and the design is sure to age gracefully, given that you are going to keep it for 5-6 years.

hi guys,
after reading all the posts, we have zeroed on to verna crdi with optional ABS(heard the package also includes rear disk brakes) and upgrade with a new set of alloys and tyres and a nice ICE (ofcourse).
thank you guys for the suggestions.

due to some other commitments, we had to postpone the idea of purchasing a new car for some time. mods, i request to please lock this thread for some time, till i ask to open it.

thank you.

Question Elantra Skidding

Hi Guys,
I am new to this forum. I thought that my elantra is the safest vehicle. But last week I met an acceident that My Elantra Skidded at 60 KM/Hour and fell in a ditch in opposite direction.

No Injuries happened to me. But I was shocked that how can an Elantra Which has ABS can Skid. So I searched the net and came to this forum and some of our friends also had this experience.
