i am driving the 3.2 and the worst i got is 8.6 with best at 10.5 in mixed driving conditions. The Endy 3.2 is a joy to own

Voted for Endeavour which offers the best in class features like power tailgate, electric 3rd row seat, sunroof quite a few to mention from long list.

The Trailblazer's engine and specs looks quite impressive but haven't seen one on road.

Did any of our Team Bhp member have Trailblazer?

I am looking for 4x2 AT SUV under 30L on road price range. Since Trend Endy is not available anymore in Delhi so was checking out Trailblazer.

Default My 36 Lac rupees SUV dilemma

Guys, I am confused.

I am looking for a replacement for my 2010 Toyota Fortuner. (1.08k kms). I sat in the new Fortuner and didn't like what I saw. I mean I bought my old Fortuner for around 21L on road in Delhi. And the new Fortuner's interiors are a whole generation different than my current one. But it simply doesn't feel like the 36 lacs being asked for it. I even felt like the middle row had less headroom and the slim seats are not the same as my old Fortuner's.

I haven't driven the new Endeavour yet. I have asked for it but somehow I haven't been able to get time to trst drive it . I have been in one and really liked it. The 3.2 Titanium version.

However, later I met my cousin today, who had booked the new Fortuner after selling his XUV. He has cancelled the booking and got an Audi Q7, 2014 done 37.5k kms for just 34.5L.

No i am not really into used cars but it has got me thinking about getting the best for my money.

Have Need suggestions. I am still very happy with my Fortuner. Its just that its getting a bit long in the tooth and the 10 year rule on banning diesel cars still is hanging.

Running is in around the NH1, Delhi to Punjab, Rough roads daily. And I definitely need better ride than my current Fortuner.
The sideways sway movement on poor roads is really bad.

Need help with inputs. I already have a an 2014 Innova and a Mercedes GL as well.

Have you checked new Endeavour? If not then must give a try. FORD is serious about India and this is a global product. Resale prices of Germans is not very good especially Audi but since you already have GL why will you like to consider something similar that too Old? If you had higher budget X5 could have been a better upgrade but at this budget, I will suggest you stick with either Fortuner or Endeavour given your intended usage. If you are not much concerned with Image and are being chauffeured try new Innova, it has same Gearbox and Engine as new Fortuner and will be far more comfortable than Fortuner or Endeavour and comparatively VFM. Postpone your decision to July either way as prices will surely get reduced.

What your cousin has done is extremely smart and well thought out. If you are OK with a pre-owned vehicle, at 36 lac INR you have great options to choose from.

For starters, I'd recommend you look at the X5 and the Disco Sport. Both are great handlers on broken roads and will give you the pleasure that the GL and the Innova wont.

This is also a smart option. However, I would not recommend the new Endy since you already have a couple of large vehicles at home and the Endy just wont give you the kind of feel you are looking for.

@Turbanator: Have sent you a PM separately for a different question.

The problem is newer Generation X5 will be expensive and hard to find and most of older generation though good would have done high mileage and without warranty, remember there was a vacuum for many years as BMW Stopped selling CBU X-5 around 2011/12. Anything from Landrover and that too old - needs a lot of good luck.

Thank you guys!

As I said, I am not into pre owned cars and never have bought one. Have seriously considered one some time back when I was was very interested in a 2007 Landcruiser.

And I did see a current generation x5 for about 42L. The Q7 never appealed to me as I always found it to be too big on the outside and too small inside.

However, do you think the prices would go down in July (if the proposed GST, rolls out).

Now, I think I will test drive an Endeavour again.

Besides, I don't think the Germans including my Merc are as Tough over the rough stuff as either the Fortuner or the Ford.

I mean I can drive away the Toyota nonchalantly over any surface at decent speeds and still not worried about something breaking or not working later.

Example : The GL's tires are the worse (Dunlops). I get a flat or a notification from the car over low tire pressure almost every week. Not a great feeling to have.

I have been owning Toyota vehicles consistently since 2002 (qualis) and my last Ford was the Ikon 1.6 and never looked at Ford again. The last Endeavour's ride was poor over broken patches is an understatement.

I can wait till the end of July for the GST rollout, if it indeed reduces prices .

Prices should go down in July, however, a lot of premium OEMs have last year's brand new stock with them and you could try to haggle out a deal with the, say Q3/X1/GLA etc since you dont want to buy a pre owned vehicle.

These would be handy for you, unless you need 7 seats all over again.

But would these be as abuse friendly as say, the Fortuner/MU-X/Pajero Sports/Endeavour, I don't think so. OP's requirement points to a body on frame SUV, else the Santa FE would have been a good cross over as well or the Tuscon.

And how much prices are expected to go down for a SUV having 30L ex-showroom?

Speculations are that the prices should go down by at least 1.5-1.8 lac INR.
