If this is true, Maruti has a problem in their hands. Any feedback from other SX4 owners....

This just seems too odd to believe. My SX4 (that has done almost 700 Kms now) has given 15-15.5 KMPL in the highways (Noted clearly. This with lots of stretches of bad roads and not much of usage of fifth gear). Haven't calculated to the point in the city, but it does look easily like 11-12+. I'm almost certain that highway mileage is going to be 16 if fifth gear is used lavishly.

Hi Reignofchaos,

Very interested in checking out the Sports this weekend with Southern. How much did you manage to get as discount and what was the OTR?

Thanks,

Anyway here are the rough service costs...

10000km - Rs 856
20000km - Rs 856
30000km - Rs 1545
40000km - Rs 4572
50000km - Rs 1765
60000km - Rs 1958
70000km - Rs 1545
80000km - Rs 4572
90000km - Rs 1545
100000km - Rs 32736

The 100k service is really expensive since the fuel filter needs replacement alongwith lots of belts etc. The fuel filter of the Cedia comes as a sealed unit which contains the fuel pump as well. This entire unit must be replaced since the fuel filter alone can't be replaced. Its a bit strange but thats the way it is.

Here are the cost of some common replacement parts/consumables

Oil Filter - 141
Engine Oil - 706
Air Filter - 458
Coolant - 410
Spark Plugs(full set) - 932
Brake Oil - 250
Fuel Filter - 21705 (replaced only at 100k intervals unlike normal cars)
Belt Valve Timing - 3469
Belt P/s - 2925
Belt Alt - 937

Shall get prices of more parts soon and will post them as I receive it.

Thanks,

Go to lathangi. They seem to be a much better dealer and care a lot about the buyer even after the purchase. The OTR price is roughly 10.32 lacs. You can get a good discount depending on haggling power . I pm'ed you my purchase price.

Although Spark is small car in dimension is space inside except for boot space is very good.

Close the door feel the thud sound its like solid body as well. GM is offerring unmatched warranty as well now a days.

By considerring all these GM carswill click day by day. Test Drive Optra and see how you feel and decide.

Sine you liked Cedia think about it as well

SX4 is too new car, it needs sometime for MUL to make sure car is trouble free I feel.

Regards,

Ravi.
Ravi, The spark and the optra magnum are newer than the SX4

Your logic seems totally confusing..

Coming to the question since the budget is 7.5L go for SX4 ZXi. Its terrific value for money.. The rear seat design of SX4 may be bad but the rear seat legroom of SX4 is far better than the Cedia... The rear seat under thigh support in Cedia is very bad...

^^Rubbish.... way way more legroom in Cedia than SX4. The only downer is lack of thigh support.

Damn!!
This confuses me more between the magnum and the cedia.
I drove the SX4 (TD) and after the magnum it felt yucky, somehow.
No offence. I felt the engine was a little less powerful and needed some more power to handle the car's weight after the AC was on.

Also I read, abt a comment a few posts above on the turbo lag of the magnum: my take : it kicks in at roughly 2150 rpm.
Thats nothing, to be honest and I didn't even feel it when i TD the vehicle. It is a bomb of a car though.
i am still waiting for the Cedia TD.

^^ Of course if there is no under thigh support in Cedia as you acknowledge, meaning a super short seat length liberating more leg room. If the seat had more support your leg room would automatically become less.... Also support is as important as leg room on long drives...
