i am pleasantly surprised to know that you sold the "value for money" linea and bought the "Pricy" Jazz.

congrats,

Thats a great list of accessories you've added. The spoiler looks great.
Can you pls post a break-up cost of all the accessories?

The RTO ones here in my city are as good as having no tints. So I guess i'll be paying some fines.

congrats on your Jazz. Nice choice as long as cost of acquisition is not a constraint. What is 4th car in the last picture? Nice angle selection for that picture.

Thanks for clearing my doubt. Even I thought it was an i10 but it did not gel with the list of cars in your signature, hence the doubt !

That is an excellent choice my friend and a very good report there with stunnning photos.

The photo you have taken of the headlight makes it look HUGE !

The JAZZ is one car which is perfect from start to finish apart from the price which I feel is 1 lac higher than what it should be. Or for that price they should have thrown in Alloys, Leather Seats & a Sunroof ( Should've made it an instant hit )

Still I say the car is an absolute bliss to be driven in town. There are 8 cupholders I hear !! Also the steering is very accurate I hear.

A much better choice than the i20 anyday.

Exactly what i felt while test driving the car. I must say even without the goodies the special financing offers are helping the sales pick up.

I could'nt agree more. This is one of the top reasons why I bought this car. Its effortless to drive in the traffic and the engine has a very eager dna similar to the OHC. In fact one of the factors of choosing the jazz over the city was the behavior of the engine which i preferred more in the jazz.

The handling is decent, no where compared to the linea's but i must say the steering is much better weighted than the NHC and the ride is smoother.

i can understand your probs, Linea is a big car! the dimension are similar to a d segment sedan! and in ahmedabad traffic it must have been really hard to maneuver her around town!

i wanted to ask "how would you compare the cabin space in jazz Vs city, linea, and your other cars like corolla"!

"also did you get a good price for the sale of linea?"

Front leg room:
1. Corolla
2. Linea
3. City and Jazz

Rear Leg Room:
1. Corolla
2. Jazz and City
3. Linea.

Overall Perception and feel Wise:
1. Corolla
2. Jazz
3. City and Linea.

Hope this answers your question. And as per the resale, selling a car in the first year of ownership = losing quite a bit of its value, but I got a pretty good deal so it was ok.
