Just go for Verna CRDI SX.Only missing faeture is AirBag.
The car is very good in all aspects.
Back seat comfort is very good.
It has good mileage,Power,Ride comfort,Interior,Exterior[Subjective] and good A.S.S. from Hyundai.
Just have a TD and decide.

Is the Cedia a very old model by any chance.

Innova...i really like the high seating of the Innova for city driving.
Lets just say your friend isnt a driving enthusiast. Lol. See the reviews here for more on the cedia. Take a test drive of the innova and youll see its quite easy to drive.

RROD: There are lot of threads on cars which are available within 10 Lacs. Also, there are lots of reviews on Verna/SX4/NHC/Cedia/Innova etc. Just go through them and you may find your answer.

Question

Just a quik Q guyz.

I see that lofs of posts where NHC and Cedia owners are asked to upgrade their tyres.
Just in case i decide on either of these cars.

How much would the tyre upgrade cost me.
Can i trade in these tyres to the dealer and get another set of tyres.

10L?
Best fit for your budget will be Cedia. Best VFM and performer in it's segment.
Go for Sports version. It competes with Civic and and corolla in my opinion.
I have heard only good about this car from it's owners.

Why don't you check out the Optra Magnum Max and the LS? They should be within your budget. Don't know about Bangalore, but in Calcutta I got the LT for 10.64 OTR.

For driving around Bangalore, give a serious consideration for an auto - City CVT is your best bet, my opinion...

Thats very practical of your friend. Since your drive is in bumper2bumper traffic, NHC GXI/CVT* (The New Honda City GXI/CVT), is the right one. It gives terrific mileage in city. Its not a dud on highways too. Its ideal speed range is 80~120Kph, where it gives maximum mileage and also in this range you are around the speed limits of the country. So safe from long arms of the law. If you buy from Dakshin Honda, then the showroom/service center is on your way to office .

Cedia has good reviews on this site but looks like a old car. It lacks the GenX appeal. If you are concerned about ABS/Airbags, then you can go for NHC VTEC Plus, which is still within your budget.

Drive all the cars and choose the best suited for you. After all its your 5 year investment.

*GXI: If you like MT
CVT: If you prefer AT

If i plan to keep a car for 5 years, should i really worry about the resale value ?
Good interiors. As i will be spending quiet some time in there.
FE..not really, but would definitely be an added advantage.
I drive around 50 KM's everyday, through the attrocious Traffic in Hosur Road.
Mostly driven in city in bad traffic.

My Budget is upto 10 Lakhs (This is stretching it!!)...what car to Buy.

Thanks!!
Skoda is expected to launch a lower priced variant to Octavia in a couple of weeks. You might want to wait till that news is out before you finalise your options.

so, what did you decide in the end? First decision should be SUV or sedan. Then move forward.

I think you should consider the Toyota Corolla, the base models fits inside your budget.
Its got ABS, a wonderful engine, excellent comfort and bullet-proof reliabilty and above all its a segment above all the other options you are considering.

If the H1 is still around in the Corolla - then it will have airbags too - and a single cd player - and that should be around 10 lacs - of course that is more like a delhi/ncr price
Of course seems like you dont have a family yet ( you mentioned your fiancee) - if its going to be you too and your two ( over the next five years - then why not the Fabia - the one fully loaded - I know its overpriced but its really classy to look at inside - and Skoda interiors dont fade away
