Dude ,

Any TATA car will give him no pleasure when he drives , so avoid. Better to go with the Swift VDi if inclined towards diesel. And if he loves to drive - I am guessing he will always sit in the front passenger seat and not the rear , so the Swift VDi with ABS ofcourse it is.

He loves to drive..but we all dont want him to drive..so sooner or later, he has to give up driving.

but occasionally, he might drive for short distances.

Thats where Tata scores over Swift

The indigos are never going to be fun to drive. Your F-I-L might as well forget his F1 genes. He is only 60 & surely he would want to drive for another 10 years, get him a car that he can enjoy driving. Since he is used to a maruti, i would suggest Swift ZXI or VDI or the SX4 if you can stretch it a bit.

Yaar F1 in the hills and on bumpy roads is a different league. The VDi will be a good bet, but the Tata would not be a bad choice either.

I guess its time for me to leave the choice to him.(my wife wants a driver)
Since its diesel, it has to be either Swift VDi or indigo LX

Can someone tell me diff between LX TDI and LX Dicor?

finneyp, I took a test drive. The difference is in the low end drivability and refinement.
The DICOR has less vibrations.
So for city use it makes sense, but once you get past 2000rpm, there is not much to choose.
However the DICOR does the 0-100 in about 16 seconds, almost a second quicker than the TDi.

Is diesel preferred because of the cost?? if so then you can consider a petrol option with a good LPG kit, when the chauffer drives he can drive with LPG and when you dad in law drives he can switch to petrol.

Diesel is preferred because of the cost and the FE

I dont know anything other than WagonR LPG. and if i custom fit LPG, warranty will be void i guess

so as of now, its Indigo LX TDI and Swift VDI. lets me ask him to take TD
