Default CEDIA v/s Elantra v/s OLD Honda CRV

Hi Guys,
I need some big time help here.

I just survived a big time road accident which took away my beloved Old Honda City type II (the best car i have driven) and that puts me again in look out for a new car.

I live in Ahmedabad with driving most of time on Highway around 3000 km per month. Not much worried about FE though.

I am considering New Cedia v/s Elantra(CRDI for power) v/s Old Honda CRV (since my parents shifting to stay with me).

All your opinion shall be highly appreciated. I am inclined a bit more towards Cedia Select with all the things that corolla offers at 11.00 this is at 9.1 lacs + octroi.

regards
Pooshna

Cedia is good, great drive and good FE. Good price also. spare parts costs could be the issue going by Lancer/HM past history. My uncle had a Lancer and he said that parts costs were very high. Mileage should be around 10.

Elantra is VFM being Diesel. For less than 11 lakhs u get the works. ABS, EBD, Traction Control, leather seats.. etc etc. However not to impressed with the look and feel of the car. looks very plastic and the drive is just about OK.

Any reasons for getting a second hand car. I think there's an entire thread on pros and cons of getting second hand cars to new ones.

CRV is a softroader. Excellent driveability. Is solid on the road and I personally liked its looks compared to the new one. FE is an issue.

3000 kms a month means a diesel makes sense cost vice. However for a good drive and road presence it could be a toss up between the cedia and the CRV.

Go for the Cedia if the cost factor is not an issue.

CRV without a doubt, its a safer car for the highway too.

hi all,
thanks for the quick response..
i am inclined towards CRV cuz of looks, sexy road presence and my damn good experience with Honda vehicles.. they are always permorning if maintained even if second hand..

Somebody of my size would not be able to handle safari dicor that easily however i would still take a test drive tomorrow.

Corolla doesnt come across as value proposition against cedia when u comapare it with features and prise.. Civic is little out of my budget so not considering it.

I got to know from the local dealer that these are last batches of elantra and now on u would not get the same model again.. hence not going for it.

hence now the race is narrowed down to cedia v/s CRV...
pls advise.. can anyone share their experience with CRV?

regards

Your inclination is well founded. The Cedia is a lovely car.

My suggestion is test drive Innova (brand new Diesel or used Petrol), you will simply love it! Its simply good car for the person who do lot of highway running. You can expect easily 13kmpl as FE for Innova D and 11kmpl as FE for Innova P. If you buy Innova P buy used one If you buy Diesel buy brand new and fill the Diesel in good reputed bunk.

Used CRV is good option too but instead of CRV plan for Cedia!

Elantra is not so good car compared with Innova, Cedia, CRV according to me. However its not bad at all!

You have short listed good cars decide on which you liked best!

Regards,

Ravi.

firstly, CRV is a soft-roader (It drives like a car though) while cedia is a car. test-drive both to decide which you find more convenient and which will be more suited and comfortably for your use.

secondly, look at the Dealer support. While HM used to have more dealers than Honda once upon a time, many of these were known for bad service while others were reputed for customer satisfaction. In Ahmedabad Landmark Honda sucks while Autonova Mitsubishi(previously Cama motors) have been great. But Many people have had reverse experiences too. Check out the dealer feedback for both Honda and Mitsubishi in your city.
