If you are looking for driving pleasure, go for a Fiat, in the present lot Punto 1.4 will fit the bill.

OR search for a well maintained Palio 1.6, you will love it!

Can't he get a low end trim Fiesta 1.6 at that budget?
In that case add Fiesta 1.6 also to your probables list.

Would suggest either of these cars - For Driving pleasure
1) i20 (Price on higher side)
2) Ritz Zxi (Would suggest to go for this - Fits in ur criteria)
3) Swift (K series engine, but may have waiting period)
4) Punto (As suggested by most of the ppl above)

I think first we need to define what constitutes "driving pleasure" in the buyer's mind. It could vary from zig-zag city driving to high-speed highway composure to torquey pull in the hills to offroading just to name a few.

Somewhat surprised that Ford Ikon hasn't been mentioned in this thread.

I think a Fiesta petrol (base) should fall within 6 lacs after discounts. Please check

If opting for new, for sheer driving pleasure in this budget nothing beats Palio 1.6. But if can opt for second, there are many options available as suggested in other thread.

How come nobody mentioned the OHC 1.5/Vtec whatever he can lay his hands on, Although I had searched for 2 months in Bangalore and could not find any decent Vtec and at last had to settle for an Accent, but i can assure that OHC is still one of the best drivers car around and you would get one in Delhi at an reasonable price and good condition as well,

Else, Baleno can also be considered given the fact that its 1.6 motor had excellent driveability quotient.
