If you can stretch your budget a little bit, you can get a Honda CR-V with auto tranny. The driving position is great and the SUV handles better than most sedans so you will enjoy driving it. The rear seats are also quite comfy. Honda service is reliable and trouble-free. However fuel economy is dismal.

Ging through the posts, and reading your requirements, I still feel it should be the Cruze for you. Have a look at it again. You're not going to find any peace of mind with the Skodas, and the Accord etc will be a stretch.

Do you want a SUV or a sedan? First decide that, or else you will be really confused.
Now that is a good question! This is undecided and you are right, it does add to the confusion!

Captiva TD was good but the family didnt appreciate the seating posture or the aircon effectiveness in the back...

What do you think of the Grand Vitara?

Thanks... yes TD of the CRV was quite nice but my budget is really 20L max!

It's clearly between Honda, Toyota and Hyundai for you.

Size : Car prices in Delhi are significantly lower than in other Metros. The Accord AT will easily fit into your budget. Call for a test-drive. It's got space to beat the Mercs, outstanding ride quality and a no-nonsense ownership experience. On the other hand, if you find the Accord too large to drive within the city (you stated driving comfort is top priority), then choose between the AT Altis / Civic. I'm eliminating the Cruze due to limited interior space. The Civic has noticeably more interior room than the Altis.

Wait : For the new Sonata. It's launch isn't too far away. However, if history is anything to go by, Hyundai will give step-motherly treatment to the new Sonata as well. Expect frequent followup with your dealership. The car may be well worth the effort though.

@ Bajajm

How little is too little in terms of interior space? If you dont really require cavernous interiors, then buy the Cruze AT. It has more equipment than even the Accord (In most departments), its diesel, its the right size, and has decent performance. You`ll end up saving a lot of money while buying and while owning.

Thanks.. I am not exactly filled with confidence on Chevy's A.S.S. - any inputs would be highly appreciated.

Thanks for the advice, have scheduled a TD for the Accord for tmrw... fingers crossed! Shall also be checking out the Cruze before deciding.

No longer as true. Sheila Dixit has increased taxation manifold. For cars above 15L (or is it 10L) the Road Tax is 10%. It was 5 or 6% earlier. Yes, VAT etc. are lower than in Maharashtra and the South.

I would have recommended the Jetta CRDI Comfortline, except that it does not have the terrific six speed DSG (at least, not yet). The Jetta would be within your budget.

The Toyota Corolla Altis and the Honda Civic are the other two fast moving cars in that category.

Please TD all the cars in your shortlist and take your decision, based on your criteria.

Regards

The X1 highline ( rear wheel drive ) 2 ltr diesel will be approx. 29 to 30 lacs ex-showroom.

I'm still on the boat and in fact am reducing my budget to 15 lakhs (this enables me to buy cash down - no debt Yippee!)

Suggestions please? Am considering Altis AT... Is there a chance of getting an auto gearbox in the 2012 Innova?
