Set of features I considered and my son demanded in my next car, Cruze is about 18L on road. I did test drive Cruze (both MT and AT), but may be I am not a diesel guy to go for it.

I am keen to see the pictures of Urban titanium and did you not opt for Caska, I feel that a good compliment.
Yes, I considered City, Altis, Cruze along with Civic. My usage is very less (in 11 years I have driven 70K in my Santro) and ownership timeframe is long. Hence looked for most reliable and proven cars.

I left color choice to the family. Sure, I will post pictures but I wonder whether UT is photogenic.

Congratulations misguidedmisile! Are you sure you are getting the new Xylo? What I read was that the new Xylo will be available from Diwali onwards. And could you please share the OTR price?

Cheers!

Thanks Ajay,

Yes, they are giving us the new Xylo. Diwali is Quite a long delay to start giving deliveries, dont you think? Surprising that they should say that! Anyways, the OTR is 10.8 in Chennai. We were thinking of the E9 (which has the Mhawk Engine), which is at 12.2 OTR, but finally decided to go with E8.

Rgds,
Varun

@MODS: Sorry for this short post/query, there seemed to be no way to contact kjmads (no PM provision yet I guess).

@kjmads : Did you get any discounts (especially on the ex-showroom price) on this purchase?
I am in the research for buying my next car and Optra is currently in my list. I just want to be prepared (if and when) I sit with the sales person when I finalize the deal.

Thank you.
