Spot on! RRod drives 50 kms a day through dense traffic, while FE is not high on his list of priorities. I would recommend only an auto-transmission car to him.

Please do test-drive the NHC CVT and the Optra / Corolla automatic variants. Therein lies your perfect machine.

My vote is for VernaSX CRDi w/ ABS , at 9.5L is good VFM and feature packed.

Also get good A.S.S. and resale value to go with.

Default A big thanks to all

Thanks a lot to all you guyz for your valuable inputs and the ownership reviews on TBHP.
I have decided on the below cars.
NHC, Cedia or Innova.

I will be back home in 2 weeks cheers:.
I'll TD all the 3 cars and then make a call.
If for some reason i am not able to make up my mind on any of these cars, i think i'll just go for the Getz

Please let me know if for any reason, i might be sounding wrong here.

Your choices are perfect, TD Cedia, Innova, NHC (inclduing AT) and try Getz (beautifull hatch) as well see which you and your family like and take a decision.

All these above cars one and same to drive and live with with peace of mind loaded with luxury!

Getz is also very good choice If you would like to settle with Hatch.


Regards,

Ravi.

NHC is not in the same league as Cedia. Do drive both and you will get your answer. As for choice between Cedia or Innova, size of family matters.

Just go straight to Lathangi motors at Bannerghatta road, they are a fine Mitsubishi dealer. Do check LPG Cedia variant as well. I am told it is even better VFM.

Getz is an excellent car. Cedia is another favourite of mine.

Optra doesnot come with a autobox yet. Then 1.8AT has been discontinued. The 2.0AT is on the cards.

Innova - Do you think you take that WHALE to everywhere in the city?
Cedia - A.S.S. is a pain and not much on the road
NHC - Damn good proven, once largest selling, check for A.S.S. in remote locations

Consider these for trust and their history - Corolla, Optra

I like Getz looks, and several reviews say it's very comfortable for city driving.
And i also read quiet a few reviews that City and Cedia are also very good for city driving.
Well i need to hold on to my horses, before i decide on the car.

I read in lots of posts that Cedia's A.S.S in Bangalore is very good.
The reason i am staying away from Fiesta is bcos of it's bad reputation for A.S.S and i really want to have a peace of mind, after i buy the car.

Innova - Like ezee said, only if you will take it everywhere. I have the car and its an amazing car, believe me.
Also, the braking is very good, dont know why the braking article said its bad.

The braking has saved me from a horrific crash where a stupid driver went from the extreme left to the extreme right to take a U turn and that too right in front of me!!! Was doing 80 or more and thought that this guy is dead and im gonna crash. BRAKED hard and was lucky to stop a few inches (or cms) from him. Was very pleasantly surprised that such a heavy car stopped in such a short distance.
Mine has ABS (V series Diesel).

The only problem will be parking space
(but the car,though looks big, is only as long and wide as a Sonata Gold (The old one))
Was suprised when i realised this.
Very comfortable car. Go for V series.

Cedia - Very capable car.

NHC - You found another hater

GETZ - Once again, a very good option for a city runabout.

I guess Verna SX or the Verna Xii should be ideal as its backed with a good hyundai after sales service and even spares does not hit your pocket.

If you plan to use it mostly in city then consider large hatch backs like Getz or Fabia.
and even Cedia because of it's quiet drive and small turning radius.

If it involves long drives every weekend/fortnight then Cedia is the one for you.
It is very comfortable, good ground clearance, built to last feel, safe (twin airbags/ABS), natural leather seats (Spirit/Sports), even after driving for 5-6 hrs at a stretch you won't feel tired.

If you've large family only then consider Innova, though it is good on build quality and fit and finish, the diesel option is not so to good/easy to drive in city if you compare it with Cedia or NHC. It's a very good second car.
