Default Versa

Hello Everyone. I need helpl in choosing a vehicle.

I drive a baleno and very happy to have chosen the car. As a second vehicle , I was wondering if Versa would be right choice. I have one Great Dane and a Lab - who love travelling with me . They were young pups and my matiz was sufficient for them . I would bring down the seat , put a thick matress for them - they Loved it. Both are growing and need more space - so was wondering if Versa would be a choice. I cannot afford the Scorpio/Tavera - I was looking at a vehiclefor the above needs at a price of 4L. Please help.
Regards

At the price Versa would be the best buy, but if you can strech your budget then there is the Rhino, or best if you could buy one second hand then the Scorpio or the Safari~

2nd hand Safari's...they would be available at your price point and have plenty of place for a whole kennel.

I would've suggested 2nd hand Qualis but they're not available for the love of money....

Your dogs would stop loving you if they got thrown around in the Versa.

Also Bolero and Mahindra Maxx twincab.

haha - steer !!

but the kind of vehicle the versa is with a high CG it cannot be driven hard so that the poor dogs would get thrown about !

its a good vehicle - space available , easy to drive , sliding doors , tried and trusted engine , cheap spares, good FE and a low buying cost too and its a Maruti.

you cant go wrong with all that ?

versa is a good and spacious vehicle. Its aged a bit now but but still very functional. Dont expect good resale but maintainence wont be a problem as it has the great name "maruti attached to it."

versa a fully equipped MUV is just not good enough reason to ride on man!...though fits well into large family's perception doesnt have the charm and the appeal of an MUV ...a man's need is satisfied by having a marutis and hyundais in india which is why MUV is not a good buy ...high price is also one the reason.....it just doesnt foot the bill..
