You meant unhurt though the same cannot be said about the scorpio ?

I would suggest using the Honda City CVT - as the small ( from a US perspective) car - very good rear seat space as well.
From back seat comfort and driver driven and 7 seater -with Airbags and ABS - Innova "V" Variant ( if ok with a van) - every other SUV with airbags and ABS - is much above your range of 10 lacs ( ex showroom)

Just when I thought I was done, you tempted me...

So if I increase my budget to say 15L on the larger one, do I start to get much better options?

Thanks

Definitely.
In 15L range you have the Hyundai Sonata Embera Diesel(Petrol is actually 12L), The honda Civic, The Skodas.
All these come with ABS and Airbags and the hyundai and the honda comes with a Traction control system too with EBD.
I think you decide on the features and what is must have.

And the Accord 2.4 too is within budget. Comes equipped with all the safety gadgets & a very spacious & luxurious interior. (By Indian Standards)

Stretch it a little more and go for the Honda CR-V -the new one is great. Or the Pajero ( though that is more for the offroader really) I would have said the Ford SUV would come in your range - but as you said - No yankee cars!

Probably something to be discussed elsewhere- but above the innova - the next Japanese MUV/SUV is really more than double the price - especially if u need to seat 7 - cars there are aplenty - as everyone has already told u

Hello uy663z! I also suggest you to go for the Toyota Innova Diesel V for the people moving commute and the Honda City CVT A/T because I would say that the Santro A/T or the Wagon R A/T are too small!

I know this is an old thread but I wanted to know if this is still true. I searched this forum for hatchbacks with auto boxes and this is the most relavent thread I could find.

Amongst the 2008 hatchbacks only the Santro/i10 will have an auto box? Are there any plans for the Swift/Getz to be fitted with an auto box? Any firm release dates for the Honda Fit/Jazz? if so will it be released with an auto box (a la CVT)?
