Only minus I could see is if the driver is tall then the passenger in the rear right seat suffers (in case front seat is pushed back). On road prices in Delhi (with addl 2 year unlimited mileage warranty of 9.2k and mats & mud flaps 1.9k) 7.88k and in Haryana 7.66k (with same).

I just cannot understand what the raves about the NHC are apart from its mileage and that Honda name. The base Optra 1.6 does not offer ABS/EBD options

Elantra petrol at the new price beats all the deals you see around.

NHC is just plain expensive.

Other than Elantra the optra 1.8/1,6 both are good cars.

Our car gives approx 9.5 in the city rush hour driving, with A/c. Not too good, but not too bad either, and the Optra makes up for it in size and feel. City/Fiesta are damn small looking. No road presence.

optra resale value will be more.

Elantra resale value will be less

but buy the car not based on the discounts or resale but on the basis of what suits you.

My vote still goes for the elantra. Its just a tad more expensive than the baleno with discounts.

Forget NHC as honda is just robbing money.

Huh???? Didnt someone from B'lore say 6.88 ex-showroom and 7.8 OTR after discounts? It must be cheaper in Bombay, too.

Will someone please clarify on the price bit?

Yes it was me. If you add road tax/insurance it comes to 8 lakhs approx (BLR) and 8.5 if your RTOs like heavy taxes, aka mumbai. Ex showroom price is 6.88 lakhs, but I guess you will insure for the market value(8.5L) and also register it for the same. Dealer discount is separate.

have you ever considered the fact that some people do not mind being "ROBBED" as long as they get

- Peace of mind
- Lower maintainence costs
- Better Build quality and reliability
- Latest technology
- More FE
- Better resale value
- Class-transcending interiors
- and the fact that they are buying a vehicle that the BEST in class, rather than a vehicle which has been beaten in its class by other superior models and is lowering price just to get rid of those stocks in the factory.

Can you ? I doubt it.

Fiesta needs some time to prove itself on these counts. Lets give it a year.
