Which Car to buy between 15 to 20L
My friend is looking to buy a car with following specifications
1. Cost 15 to 20L
2. Sedan. SUV's not ruled out
4. Less maintenance
5. Family of 4 to 5
6. Usually city driven 2 to 3 time highway drives
7. Good FE
8. Petrol/Diesel both are welcomes
9. Good resale value after 5 to 6 years
I suggested Cruise and Jetta in Sedan and Captiva/Scorpio/Tucson in SUV's
Let me know team BHPians opinion on the same !

1. Cost a bit above 20l
3. Comfort can be matched with Merc E Class
4. Maintenance a bit on the higher side
5. Can seat 5 easily
6. Great highway cruiser
7. Diesel has good FE, petrol has better FE than Accord
8. Has better resale value than accord.
If budget cannot be stretched, I suggest a Laura. Cruise has a bit of turbo-lag. So city driving may be a problem. Superb/Laura has an exceptional DSG gearbox and the gizmos will drive you crazy. Scorpio is in 12 lac segment, Tucson should be avoided if he wants a good resale value. Captiva might be a bit over 20l.

If he wants a sedan choose between the superb or the honda accord. For SUV pick up the toyota fortuner. If maintainence is a factor to be considered seriously, then pick the honda and leave the skoda out.

In the 15 - 20 Lac segment -
Corrolla Altis - Excellent Petrol Sedan.
VW Jetta - Diesel - Good sedan BUT less luxurious than the Laura top variant.
Skoda Laura TSI / Diesel - both excellent.
Skoda Superb - should be above 20 lacs I guess.
Fortuner - Long waiting period and 22 Lacs or so.
I would take the Laura Diesel out of the above.

Should be in the following sequence with respect to your defined parameters.
Sedan - Skoda Laura, Jetta, Honda Accord, Corolla Altis, Cruze, Tata manza (VFM Sedan)
SUV's - Ford Endevour, Honda CRV, Captiva, Prefer Safari than Scorpio

'9. Good resale value after 5 to 6 years'
A 6 yr old accord would sell cheaper than a new swift
Either the Laura top end in sedan or the Fortuner in SUV.
