@WL: But you can try the Linea P - its a great VFM and looks real good.
Dont recommend the Fiesta as its a size smaller and you have mentioned backseat as a key criteria. Sweet car to drive though.
OKay, got it.

I think if it is a petrol sedan, the Fiesta is the best bet. Linea might have very poor resale after a few years, like all Fiats. Also, it is underpowered compared to the Fiesta P. I would say Fiesta has slightly better interiors and space, the Linea has slightly better ride and looks.

Power is not so much of a concern. SX4, Optra, Aveo have been rejected.

The driver's gonna be driving most of the time and my dad will probably use it for a couple of days a week.

Besides, the Fiesta is not more spacious or fuel efficient when compared to the Linea or the City hence the choice boiled down to these two. Personally, I didn't care too much for the City for the following reasons:
Tinny feel of doors and body panels
Overpriced and no features at all
Expensive spares
Suspect A.S.S in Mysore where the car will be.

Any idea what the real world FE for the all new Honda City and Linea petrol is?

Optra makes more sense for a chuffer driven car. Since it is a d segmenter you get a lot more rear legroom

Since i started this thread (a long time back, i might add), i thought it would be fair to bring it to a logical conclusion by saying i finally booked the ANHC S M/T, and its arriving tomorrow. A lot of people helped me out - and it was hard waiting for almost an year to pick up the new version, but then again - it was worth the wait

The best part about tbhp & my long car search had been my great experience test driving the other cars. During the year i have TD'ed : SX4,DeZire,NHC,Civic,Corolla,Innova,Cedia,Scorpio, Verna & Linea, and Optra. All good cars. Gives me a healthy respect of toher cars in the segment.

A lot of people helped me out with suggestions here. I decided to try the Cedia only after getting strong suggestions here. A car i probably enjoyed most while TD. Had it been a decision from the heart, i would have probably booked the Cedia.

Thanks Everyone
