Which one to choose: Verna vgt OR Cedia
Posting on behalf of my cousin, upgrading from a santro
The other options like Fiesta, SX4, NHC were rejected ( subjective issues)
Optra Magnum came quite close to be among the top two but budget & Daewoo factor crept in.
So, things boiled down to two cars. Petrol/ Diesel not an issue.
Which one out of the two would be better in terms of:
1. Driver's car on highways
2. Resale value after 5-6 years

Cedia is a very good car in comparison with Verna. It has better control and manueverability at high speeds. Since you are going to keep the car for 6 years you shouldn't be bothered about its resale value either. But verna is likely to fetch better resale value than cedia
VFM - Cedia, yes it is.

I don't think the Daewoo Factor should be in Play at all, Magnum is a real beauty and great buy.
Cedia and Verna are two different cars- Cedia is pitted against the Corolla and elantra likes- You cannot compare the two.
If you're on a budget choose the Verna. However, The Fiesta D is also a great buy comparitvely- Have driven both and rank them quite respectably.
Cedia is pure performance and a awesome machine, what goes against is the HM Mitsubishi Re-sale- But if you need it for 6 years, Why worry on resale, You will never fetch what you are looking at considering the constantly growing Indian Automotive Scene, with New model launches every year.
As a Lancer Owner, I can vouch for the Reliability, Sturdy and Superb handling assurance of a Mitsubishi Product- After Sale depends on region to region.
Resale, ofcourse when a 3 year old merc can sell for less than 10, What would you really want.

I think you should seriously take a TD of the Magnum again as there is no daewoo factor whatsoever and is the best all-rounder. Loved the car when i drove one.
If budget issues - suggestion is Verna

Verna vgt with ABS is on a class of its own in its segment and cedia and magnum are the best in their class.Both the cars compared are actually not pitted against each other..
Anyways Verna will be costing you less and earning you more in resale and running cost.Awesome power delivery.I dont think cedia will come close on that,
but cedia is a great car with better stability under high speeds and rich feel interiors.
You are paying for that man .So it boils down to how much you can spend and whats the cost on a daily basis.If you can spend for a cedia and running cost(mileage) is not a concern go for it else verna top the charts.

If you are going to drive and keep it for 5 years then close your eyes and go for Cedia. Sports model is really VFM.

Go for the Cedia. You wont regret it.
If you plan to keep the car for 5-6 years, then there is no point to go for a car just because its resale value will be good in future. Remember, you should also get to enjoy driving your car for the time you have it with you.

Cedia tops - Performance & Handling with no regrests on mileage (12 KMPL if you average city & highway)
Magnum - if you want a diesel option
Verna is no way closer to Cedia and Magnum

1. Driver's car on highways : CEDIA. Look no further
2. Resale value after 5-6 years: Doesnt matter as mentioned by others on the thread. You will get some residual value of 1 to 1.5lacs. You should change in 3 to 4 yrs if you are expecting serious money via resale.
3. VFM : CEDIA. The only advantage i see in the Verna is the Diesel motor.
