Accent-1999-63000KM-Rs.2.25 lacs
Accent-2001-43000KM-Rs.2.60 lacs
OHC-1999-65000KM-2.46 Lacs

In my opinion, Baleno and OHC are much better cars than the Accent. Frankly, the Accent is better avoided. The OHC prices seem to be ok, but trying a little more in the market would fetch you a good OHC 2002/3 for 3-3.25L.

About Baleno, you'd get a 2001-2002 for 3L.

Try to get a Baleno, you won't regret it. Afterall, it is T-BHP favorite

Keep away from Ford Ikon. Cheers!

raja,

this confusion is as old as the cars themselves. please look around in the forum. you can find a few of us fans and owners both in good spirits and also with horns locked supporting each others rides (though not much about the accent).

entertain yourself first with all those threads, get more confused, and then, if you still want to buy one of those, go ahead and get one

all the best.

But as always, you need to find a Baleno/OHC in stock condition, which is needless to say, very hard

Hi,

I really did not get you. I know the cars are old,but when a person is looking for used one with a limited budget will obviously have to go for these,right? Please let me know if you suggest any better option.

If I can afford really,i would have definitely gone for latest models.

I own a Hyundai, but if I were you I would go with OHC because of the build quality and Honda design. Try and get the 1.5L one.

I also feel that the Carwale prices are indicative and on the higher side, you may get a better deal if you search on your own.

OHC then baleno as preference. Very hard to find someone selling these cars though in good condition.

A similar search of mine ended about 20 days ago...i too was looking for either Baleno, Accent or OHC and after driving all, I found the OHC to be very comfortable and very appealing (offcourse this is subjective and depends on individuals likes)...and I picked up this 2001 OHC..well maintained and I have covered about 2K kms so far and am liking everything about it...

We have an OHC 2001 model and the machine is a dream. In the choices mentioned I would go for the OHC anyday followed by Baleno. OHC it should be (of course IMHO)
