My answer is elantra (crdi). It is a very good car. Easy to maintain than other cars in its segment. Handles well, good ride , well built , cheap when compared to octy and accord.

My suggestion If you need Luxury Sedan go for Civic or Corolla If budget permits, you can also think about Innova V top end ts awesome car/MPV.

Nothing can beat Innova/Corolla/Civic.

Regards,

Ravi.

Civic was reported to have faulty engine mounts also people were complaining about some problem with third gear. Laura is high priced , its parts are also pricey. Its having a harsh ride. There is value for money.

Corolla is a good vehicle but it is petrol.

Honda accord is a nice car. One of the largest selling car in the world. Honda has been really good to Indians when it comes to updating their product lines.

Even Honda civic will show you some wonders and extremely recommended if its going to be a self-driven cars.

but two achieve the best of both worlds look at skoda.

Faulty engine mounts have been fixed. third gear problem? Heard anything specific. Would like to know.

anyway's back to topic. Can you be a little bit more specific please. (How much distance you drive, prefer diesel or petrol, self driven or driver)

For the Laura and Accord, suggest you test drive both. Both have excellent advantages. Or if budget permits the CRV. Embera is also there at the cheaper end of that segment. Sorry for not being more specific, but you should test drive all of them. They all have their plus and minus points.

I own a Honda, so suggest you choose one for peace of mind.

Elantra/Civic/Corolla/Innova are all at the lower segment to what you seem to want.
