Congratulations to both of you!

My question is related to Amaze. Did you guys ever thought of checking out the Amaze before booking the City?

I personally (Not yet TDed the Amaze) think that Amaze petrol has got everything that City has, except the under-powered 1.2 engine compared to the 1.5 iVtec, so why spend those extra 2-2.5 lacs on the City?

I had a look at the Amaze, but it was never a serious contender.
  • New car was a replacement for my aging Honda City ZX (2006); so would not be comfortable with a more constrained space inside
  • Waiting period of 6 weeks or so - I had already found a buyer for my old car

Besides, I'm not really impressed with the Amaze. Honda appears to be cutting corners; the front seats are a case in point.

But that's just my opinion

Even I had a look at the Amaze but never considered it. A peppy petrol engine, good looks, huge boot, nice interiors and back seat comfort were my top priorities..

I took Test drive of City, Verna, Vento, Rapid, New Fiesta, Scala and Linea Tjet(old)

Verna - Loaded with Features but low Back seats are not comfortable
Scala - Amazing space but did not like the interiors. No RxZ in Petrol.
New Fiesta - Overpriced, No discounts offered, Basic back seats, smaller boot.
Linea - Balaji Auto gave me a test drive on old Tjet, Loved it but I did not wait for the new Tjet because I was concerned about FIAT's ASS.
Rapid/Vento - Loved everything except the transmission hump. But not as peppy as City.

Hence the City...

Booked Alto 800 for my brother.

Make : Maruti
Model : Alto
Variant : 800 LXi (there is no VXi variant on Alto800)
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 16th June 2013
Color : Frost Blue
Expected Delivery Date : 2 weeks max
Dealer & City : Sehegal Motors, Pune
Accessories : All sorts of mats, mud flaps, remote key lock, art leather seat covers.
Cash Discount : 30,000 + 2,000 Corporate discount + 2,500/- Free accessories
On Road Cost : 3,31,500/- INR

We asked the SA regarding rear power windows and he said that these can be easily fitted. They are charging 6,500/- for these and we have readily accepted it. All in all a good deal.

We started from home with a plan to book Alto K10, but somehow Alto800's interiors looked better to us. The rear seat legroom is marginally better too.
