Why you want dash clock for 5000!!!

instead set your ICE display on a clock mode.


also If you are a bit worried about Accent's FE, than go for a CNG option.

Sorry, but don't expect ANHC figures from accent. In a city like Bangalore, with a/c and traffic on you might get 9kmpl from accent. ANHC would comfortably give you 11+.

You can always go CNG ifyou are looking at running costs.

thanks alaap and skywalker.

actually i am not worried about the fuel efficiency. even if the accent gives me a fe of 10 kmpl its ok coz my daily runner will be the swift..

also even i think its not worth to buy a clock for 5g.. but its jus that the watch slot looks empty or maybe its jus me.. fussy.

While we all agree that an Accent + Swift Vxi cannot be a match with a ANHC, this is one of the instances where we use our heads rather than our hearts, correct? But when one thinks about it, it makes so much more sense, especially when two people have benifitted from this. Congrats on your twin purchases, and keep us updated, with pictures.

Hey, first of all congrats on two new cars instead of one.

Now on to the rant. I know you have already stated a strict budget of 10Lac but you could have also considered a Swift LDi with an Accent. LDi would have given you enough FE along with the power. But i am sure you must be having some reasones other then the budget not to consider the LDi.
