No I dont. In fact come to think of it Sir, which other vehicle offers you 170BHP, Full time AWD, lockable differentials, low ratio transfer case, all row ac, 17" wheels, comfortable 7 seats, lever shift 4wd(reliable), quality F&F, and a completely hassle free ownership experience including *** and a vehicle which will probably outlast its owner.

Will the Santa Fe be priced in the 20L range?
Well then thats a bummer. But still no harm in taking it for a TD is there?

The Sante Fe is supposed to be in the range of 20l. Its got a 190+bhp engine if I remember correctly and will make a great all round package. Now if only people are willing to spend that much on a Hyundai.

No, I am talking about the Pajero Sport that is based on the Triton pick-up. This is supposed to come to India soon, and is reputed to be a good old school SUV. However, knowing HM/Mitsu, I am not confident that they can replicate the success of the Fortuner.

true but think about the safety features - only ABS & 2 airbags. no ESP, TCS & hill descent control which are offered in the Captiva.

i am not interested in the 4WD as we are not going off road in this one. so in your post, the part marked in bold are of no use to us.

if only the captiva had rear AC vents... how is GM's A.S.S? the last time we had an opel, their service was pathetic.

i dont mind spending that much on a hyundai. its just that resale value wont be as good as toyota but thats fine. somewhere i had seen the interior pic of the Santa Fe & suddenly the Fortuner's boring dash looked impressive!

Well, then even the TCS and HDC wont matter, will they? Moreover, I believe that lesser electronics and robust basics are what make a better car.
GM Service at Bangalore is good. But Toyota's is better.

traction control is a safety feature which detects wheel spin & corrects throttle input or brakes accordingly, its not just used in off roading.

I feel you are going to change your plan & wait untill pajero sport and santa fe arrivals. santa fe interiors on Indian version will not be same higher quality as shown in left hand drive.

Default Re: Which SUV for ~20L? Endeavour vs Fortuner vs Captiva vs Pajero.

Asked many toyota dealers. Waiting period varies from 9 months to one year!
Also, booking is closed. They have no idea when it will re-open. So fortuner is out of the list. It does not deserve so much importance or credit IMHO.

Next enquired about Santa Fe to hyundai dealers. again booking is closed & MAY re-open in April. A batch of 600 vehicles had arrived & it is already sold. We can book in advance for the next batch (that is, April batch) but they have no test drive or display vehicle... We wont book a vehicle without even sitting in it!!! So Santa Fe is out too.

So, in the end, we will wait till April-May for any new launches.

Mahindra - PLEASE PLEASE launch the W201 by then.
Mitsubishi - Please launch the pajero sport by then.

On-road prices in mumbai:

Fortuner-
23,59,000 (Private)
25,44,000 (Corporate)

Santa fe-
26,68,000 (4x2)
28,44,000 (4x4)

Did not quite understand the 'Private' and 'Corporate'. Are these variants or purchase options? What is the difference? Why the 'Corporate' is nearly 2 lakh more than 'Private'?

Thats for registration. If registering it in a company name then you have to pay corporate road tax which is quite a bit more than individual (private) tax.

yes, akshay1234 is right. If you register your car in a company name & not an individual name, then you have to pay more tax. also, if the car is a 8 seater or more & is registered in a company name, it will have a yellow number plate.

Default Re: Want a SUV for 25 lacks

I would definitely suggest the Chevorlet Captiva. If not then the Toyota Fortuner.
