[As for the lancer/accent CRDi- I would go for an accent CRDi at around 3L price. Lancer diesels usually comes with high mileage on the odo...]

I have not seen any Accent CRDi in the second hand market less than 5 to 6 lac bracket in Bangalore.....

Lancer D is a great car and can easily do 3 lac plus mileage without any problems. Challenge is to find a good car...

not to offend but do you really think tata can make engines as superior as a renault or a mitsubushi?
In sheer quality - Nope. But what does a person who buys an entry-level diesel sedan want? Reliability and FE? The Indigo has both.

In Kerala its a different story. A 2001 Accent was on sale for 2.5L two weeks back in kottayam, and i guess Crazy_Driver was reffering to 2nd hand accents sold in kerala and yes in B'lore it does cost more !!

Are u sure its Accent CRDi? Second hand Accent GLE is sold around 3 L in Bangalore...Again 2001 there was no Accent CRDi. If I am not wrong it was launched in 2003 end.

Yes Accent CRDi is phased out.
I think you can consider an Indigo Dicor as suggested by other team BHPians. The new Indigo looks better with the new head lights and tail lamps.

Default Lancer Diesel

Well i Suggest you go for Lancer Diesel.
it's a Good car and to tell you,the engine in Lancer Diesel is a patent Engine of Mitsubishi Motors,it has no problem,you can easily drive the car for 3.5 lac km and the car has no problem,Built Quality is Great everyone knows that,the only Trouble is "It is Really hard to Find a Lancer Diesel in Original Condition".

Best of Luck...
Thanks

I'm sure the thread starter has moved on with his decision a year after posting this thread.
