if petrol, then Accent it is. no need to think twice.

compared to Accent, Indigo petrols have lesser FE and re-sale value, apart from comparatively not so great interiors.

If you are ok with a not very goo resale value, you may want to look at the Aveo 1.4 Last I heard, there were loads of discounts for the taking. And it has the best interiors/looks, ride quality by far.

Hyundai Accent it is folks!

Is the Ford Ikon the second best option for a petrol sedan?

The Ikon Flair would score over the Accent with respect to its driving pleasure, and seating comfort, along with ease of ingress and egress.

Schedule test drives, and then decide. You cant really arrive at a decision based on feedback from others alone.

He will drive solo Benny. Don't think he will appreciate the rear seat comfort of the Ikon.

Needless to say, test drives are mandatory.

dont know about that but Accent would definitely score on better dealer experience and maintenance costs, not to speak of better re-sale value in future...

@luvjascha: Aveo looks great and has a better ride comfort but i hear the engine is very sluggish making it a pain to drive through traffic.

TD all your options and decide.

Not that Hyundai makes fabulous cars or something, but most definitely far better a choice than a Tata car. Reasons are far and varied, most already mentioned in this thread. I myself have a 125k km old Accent. And we had an Indigo in close relation. Fairly horrid car. Quality of interiors is far far below any standards. And if looks are a criteria, then Hyundai has done a much much better job of sedan'ing their hatch than Tata did. Go for the Accent. It will not disappoint you (as long you've owned anything called OHC before).

Aveo 1.4 (if budget permits)> Accent > Ikon > Nothing. Better no car than the indigo.

Accent is in a different league altogether when compared to an Indigo. If you like performance, better built quality then it has to be an Accent. Only drawback is its a bit tough to get in and out for tall people.

Whereas Indigo is strictly for the people who like sedate performance and huge cabin space and it does have too much of a brand value associated to it and this may effect the resale value too.

i think accent would be the correct choice,considering the fact that it should be petrol only.logan can also be considered in case you think that the accent will be phased out.the only reason aveo should also be added to the list is because you will be getting free service for 3 years.plus if you add the cost of maintainence as well,then indigo will be on higher side.
my choice would be
1.aveo 1.4(considering the 3 yrs warranty).
2.logan = accent(can be considered)
indigo-will not reccomend.

by costs if you mean maintenance and upkeep, you have nothing to worry about. hyundai spares are cheap and aplenty. do you want a list of part costs, you could get that at a dealer.
