Question Scorpio CRDe or Viva CRDi

Guys I need to decide and finalize between the following two vehicles:
Scorpio CRDe/ Accent Viva CRDi.

Considerations:
-Daily mileage of atleast 80 kms.
-Good performance in terms of acceleration and top speed.
-Good overall high speed dynamics/ Braking, handling etc.
-Least maintanance cost.
-Good resale value keeping in mind 2-3 years of usage.

help me decide...

Very simple - you dont get a Pete's box for the Scorpio.

To know what Pete's box does to very normal people, please ask KB100 who has sprouted horns and an arrow-head tail since Sunday.

PS: I just remembered that KB100 wasnt a normal person anyway.

help me decide...
1) both are equally capable
2) viva is better here
3) Have not driven the new scorpio so cant comment but for viva crdi I would say its just about ordinary.
4) Accent again would have least cost but I havent owned a scorpio.
5) both are good selling cars and will retain their values 2-3 years down the line. Accent though may loose value as a new model is coming out his year.

-Daily mileage of atleast 80 kms. - Accent wins here for fuel efficiency
-Good performance in terms of acceleration and top speed. - Again accent wins here.
-Good overall high speed dynamics/ Braking, handling etc. - Again Accent. Go for ABS version. (no SUV' will have stability as the saloon/sedan)
-Least maintanance cost. - Again accent.
-Good resale value keeping in mind 2-3 years of usage. - IT seems scorpio now. But rumors are there that they are planning a new 7/8 seater scorpio in near future. I would predict same depreciation for both after 2-3 yrs.

If you are an office goer pick the accent. On weekends if you need a family outing hire an SUV or MUV.

If you are a politician/business man who need to have an image and frequently get out of the vehicle and get in go for scorpio.

At last if you want it to be self driven go for accent.

1. Viva should be good on mileage
2. Viva period
3. Viva again
4. Hyundai is cheap too but maybe not as much as the Scorpio
5. That might be the Scorpio

Anyway...final answer "HYUNDAI ACCENT VIVA CRDi"
