Since she is new to driving, I would suggest that she get an auto Santro for a few years to polish her driving and then move onto a bigger car.

Well, she knows driving a manual, but maybe an AT would be better. What we are looking for is a nice car, very easy to drive thats it. Power, mileage not considered much. And yea it shuld be comfy too.

do u think an OHC AT will b available in used car market???..
Hey Burnt Rubber,

I dont know about the other cities in India but yes in Mumbai I have actually seen more OHC ATs than the manuals. And decent and well maintained ones are usually up for sale. OHC ATs are extremely reliable as are the manuals and are a good buy in the used car market

I would suggest the NHC,Swift or the Optra 1.6....depends on her style of driving....is she a rugged kinda drive or a simple kinda driver?? But looking at the traffic around I think she would be better with a Swift or the NHC than an Optra.

which year is it ? ..4.5 is quite a bit considering the fact that the last of TYPE 2 City;s rolled out in 2002 ..

dont let the fancy accessories be the reason for such big price quote ..

hey i think lancer invex is also a good option but i dont know its price exactly. the invex has got a triptronic gearbox which has both automatic and manual so when you want some fun then you can shift from automatic to manual . correct me guys if i m wrong

The lancer invex was terrible over priced when it was introduced into the market. It retailed for 11 lakhs which is too much for lancer. Also the quality has gone down big time with poor quality plastics and rattly dashboard. Its fin to drive but then at 11 lakhs one does expect more. And you wont find a used invex either since it didnt really sell.

A Honda is a better option IMO

i never knew it was so expensive anyways i love that triptronic feature of the invex and love the looks of lancer but its priced too high. then i would prefer the optra 1.6
p.s do the optras have automatic transmission
