Getz CRDi any day! Or get a Swift DDiS and install a Pete's box.

Me thinks someone really likes this car.

Actually Mohit - From what I hear the Getz CRDI with a tuning box is supposed to be quite the ride. Should fit your needs nicely. It handles well, got plenty of power even in its stock form and should be pretty frugal given your relatively high driving mileage. The only negatives are no ABS and Airbags - something that should be standard in such a potent car.

GETZ CRDI or SWIFT DEZIRE -ZDI, both are in your range. You get almost everything you want in these two option.
DEZIRE would be my pick only if driving pleasure is primary.

I am too sure how the Getz will handle with that heavy engine upfront and all that power... I am not too sure. If diesel in not a priority, Fiesta 1.6 is a wonderful drivers car and the suspension is unbeatable.

Verna CRDi without doubt. Since you do 50-70 km a day, it would be economical too. Take a TD and decide for yourselves.

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please take the effort to type out your posts in proper use of the english language. Also avoid excessive dots (...............). Thanks

dear friends

thanks for your suggestions... what i have been able to make out as per ur suggestions is that verna crdi is the only choice left for me.. i am also considering honda city vtec .... as i told earlier too i had owned a swift vdi which i must say is a real fun to drive car... what if i buy swift vdi and use pete tuning box....? how do u guys see it as compared to verna... i test drove the desize vdi and found its power lesser as compared to my older swift vdi... kindly suggest....

I am not much bothered about the boot and all as we are having 2 accents at home..so kindly suggest accordingly

Regards

Mohit...

what happened to your swift VDi? did you sell it?
why do you need to buy a new car and pete it? just pete the current Swift VDI. or am I missing something?

the ABS verna is good fun. and has a little modding potential
ditto for the swift VDI

If you are looking for Fun to drive hatch, it got to be Palio 1.6 Sports, and for a sedan - Fiesta 1.6!

I second this suggestion. Many have suggested Verna CRDI, but it costs around 50 K more than the budget of 8 lacs.

Come on you guys, the Verva with that vague steering and sloppy handling is fun to drive?! The engine is a stonker, no doubt, but calling the Verna an enthusiasts machine is overshooting it by a mile.

Best sedan to drive within 8 lacs : The Fiesta 1.6. No two sides to it.
