Jesal , looking at all yr option , i would suggest u to first decide a budget
Yr options range from the wagonR *to esteems to honda city.

Btw , if u willing to wait the Getz will be out by max Sept end
Price for base model on road mumbai individual reg will be close to 4.75 and 5.60 for the top end . Still have no idea abt the trims or features in any of the models to be launched.

Also , I have heard that ford is increasing the power of its Ikon to 100 Ponies at no extra cost ( no confirmation yet)

Esteem is truly a driver's car, but the ride quality is not so good.
If its gonna be yr personal car , its worth it , but not worth as a family car.
ANd yes the black color in Esteem looks awesome.

Dont go for the Esteem. Its a 15 year old design, terribly outdated, no interior room and pathetic ride quality. The only thing good is acceleration in a straight line, fuel efficiency and the Maruti backing.

Go for the Baleno. Its a whole generation newer and is priced very competitively right now.

GTO
no doubt the baleno is better,but arent the spares still expensive.
frankly speaking ,after the VTEC,cannot think of any particular car .maybe the baleno will come somewat near .
the new city is also terrific,but however good it may be,the 1.5 vtec still rules

there is no exact budget but im guessing under 7 max. but i can put the rest in . and buy whtever. it is a personal car since im not replacing any of my car. its gonna be a adddon. 5.5 for getz not at all worth esteem is far better only test drive is left now. the point is all cars are 2 months waiting so i have no option but to wait. baleno i went to see today total crap . i hate it so much dont care about the engine no matter how good it might be. looks is first thing to me. perfomance can come in laterz. i know this site is for perfomance but i stay in a country where one lane has 3000 potholes and papers claim the whole city has only 3000. its lame so no place to run.

If looks matter to u , I must say that the Baleno looks better than the Esteem except that 6 inch by 6 inch spot (taillights .)

If u like the black esteem , Black Baleno looks even better .
Sorry to be insisting again on the baleno , but cant help.
Please give it a second thought buddy.

Hahahaha..people might hate you jesal but that doesn't change the facts. With such craters on the road where will you run it ! * *But I'll back up others on their decision of going against the esteem. I mean please the esteem just looks crap now & is the most horribly cramped car ! Plus 3-4yrs down the line resale would be terrible 'coz I hope Maruti stops making the Esteem by then. * *
Anyway about the Accent delivery, I'm getting it on wednesday or thursday for sure.

Maybe you could try the Fusion. I liked the bodystyle(at least in ACI pics) & something different.
