And what was the issue with Civic's safety? You mean its not as solidly built as a Skoda??
Hey you know what, ive met with 2 'deadly' crashes in my life and survived. So my Dad thinks i certainly need a car more safer than the Civic.
And Skoda is unbeatable when it comes to built.

Ohh i love that car. It can really move. But i dont trust Chevrolet as much as Honda or Skoda. No offence to Chevvy owners outhere.

i would say get the lastest fashion statement Civic. I think someone should post good pix so that he can make up his mind by this weekend
I've seen the pics and the car in person. Had scheduled a TD for both today. But have postponed it to tommorow due to the barsaat.


I have one Q. Is is possible to get Company-fitted ABS on the Tdi??

The civic IMO. The skoda is really dated and I'm told A.s.s is really an issue.

Safety.. hmm..

I know of someone who had a 120kmph frontal collision while behind the wheels of the Old Honda City. Repairs cost around 4 lakhs. (of course the insurance was there). The driver and co passenger escaped without a single scratch. Now if that was the safety level in the OHC then the Civic should definitely be better... So i dont see safety being a concern for anyone going in for any of these cars but be sure that ABS and Airbags are there (IMHO they can save lives in panic situations, and now that they area available we might as well have them)

X,
I do not know if you have bought your car already.
As for the ABS option, there is a limited edition of the Rider called Classic which you can buy for 40,000 bucks extra. It comes with ABS, Alloys and rear spoiler. It is available only in Black though !
