my friend bought an elantra petrol in white looks dated but cool. it has everthing from airbags to climate control. its run 40k kms. and the deal went for 4.5+ish lacs.
but i think the carolla is quite a good option. see if you buy cars from D segment. close to 5 lacs! what else can one ask for?

The corolla is NOT a drivers car. Also, the 2003 corollas (pre-ABS) have a vey poor suspension, that thumps over potholes and eats up tyres from the outside. I have seen it on our car, a relatives car and a friends car. Ant those were the only cars I looked at.
The Cedia is a good car and should be very reliable.
With the budget, you can also get a 2005 Fiesta Petrol and possibly a Verna Petrol as well. These cars are newer and should be very reliable. Our fiesta has done 45Kkm, and hasnt given us any reason to complain so far.
Also look at 2001 Honda Accords. These cars were imported and were VERY reliable. Ours did 70Kkm without any hassle and would have done a lot more too. Even the JD Power ratings were good with a 20something Problems per 100 vehicles rating.

@chicken-egg aka kolimuttai, your requirements seem to be good handling and ability to do good speeds. If so, why is the Fiesta1.6 not on your list ? Good handling, speeds, driver's car etc etc. FE should also be around what you specified or even a bit more. Maintenance and A.S.S. seems to me the only grey area which you can check with other Fiesta users.

To be honest, I cant imagine what driving a washing machine feels like. A yacht, a bus , or a boat , possibly , but a washing machine ? thats a very strange analogy!

Yup! 30% depreciation in the 1st year!
I'll definitely try to find out such mint car in my next buy. (especially Honda)
