Need a more economical hatch for the running I do daily. I end up spending 700-800 rupees on fuel a day, these days. The car is in such good shape that I am going to sob inconsolably when (if) I have to see it go :-(

I dont think there are petrol hatches that will give you a significantly better mileage unless you go to the entry level petrol hatch category.

Other than that if you buy a diesel hatch, you shall be shelling out a lot of money on a new car which wont obviously be not as fun to drive as your 1.6 S (not even close). It will easily take you 2-3 yrs to recover the extra cost while driving a car that is not as good to drive as your current car.

Do a little math and think about it. Also add diesel service costs that are about 30% more than the equivalent petrol service costs.

A diesel Figo is what I am looking at. We intend to keep it for atleast 5-6 years and use it as a workhorse. Agreed, we will lose money, but running costs will be low and there will be no hesitance in taking the car out every day. But yes, the S will be missed even if I graduate to an Audi, someday.

Looks very less, the price of all the cars have shot up significantly so you cannot get even a small car for les than 2lks 1.6S is definitely a great model. 5.2-5.4 should be good

Dear Camon, never trust care wale or mahindra first choice, because they discourage everyone to buy from owners and rather make the buying through them, thus they make good profit. If you see one of fiesta thread, a gentleman from chennai sold his fusion ( outdated) and that has done more than 1.3lk kms with many issues for 2.8lks to first choice and they in turn sold it to another guy for 3.3lk so IMHO one must trust the owners who have taken care of the vehicle. These brokers use words like "excellent conditions" to tap gullible customers so better take wise decision.

Regarding price yes there has been increase in price from 3 yrs ago although not much in the last 1yr time

3.75 to 4 lakh should be the max price for this vehicle. Petrol sedans sell for very less these days due to the hike in petrol rates!

Ok. I thought you were referring to old used cars.

Hey frank, though I probably never posted on your endless thread on ICE, it was always a joy to see you investing so much passion into your ride. Sad that you have decided to sell it off.

Anyhow, just wanted to suggest the Verito. It's a cheap & economical diesel sedan;I would really recommend checking it out. It's a no-nonsense car that can serve you well for many years to come.

Take care.
