Would be delighted to! In fact, ive even thought of a name for the thread - how does "Acid Test: VW Vento Highline TDI" Sound?

Obviously, she wasnt amused. She just told me that i owe her a Honda City when its the turn to change her car

So much for Vento and City comparisons!!

Default Booked Innova VX 8 Seater

Make : Toyota
Model : Innova
Variant: VX 8 seater
Fuel : Diesel
Booking Date : September 10 2010
Color : Champagne Mica Metallic
Expected Delivery Date : September 11 2010
Dealer : Grace Toyota, Gurgaon
Booking Amount: Rs 45,000

The vehicle will be sent to my dad in Mumbai as he is retiring and wanted a comfortable vehicle with good GC.(He might settle in Gurgaon and the vehicle would be used to visit our natives in Rajasthan).

The vehicle evaluated were Captiva, Pajero, Sonata transform but being chauffeur driven all the time, it all came down to the common sense purchase and Innova it was.

Default Tata Safari LX-Cycus Grey

Make : TATA
Model : Safari
Variant: LX
Fuel : Diesel
Booking Date : September 10 2010
Color : Cycus Grey
Expected Delivery Date : September 22 2010
Dealer : KHT Motors, Whitefield, Bangalore
Booking Amount: Rs 25,000

It was long standing desire for me to go for Safari. However due to various offers I evaluated 2 other cars last week 1. Fiesta Limited Edition 2. Tata Manza QJet Aura+. But when I visited Tata Showroom, I cannot resist myself to look into Safari LX display car. It was coming one lakh more than Aura+ Manza due to recent reduced rate.

However, my initial plan was to wait till next year and go for Safari GX 4X4, could not hold that much. So, it is Cycus Grey Safari LX for me.

From a Sedan to a SUV, thats one hell of an upgrade! How much is the safari costing you on the road after the discounts?

For me it is not Sedan to SUV it is Maruti 800 to SUV . Safari LX at Bangalore after discount around 9,15,500 approx. Thanks to killer road tax in Karnataka.

errr....I did! i scoured all pages of this thread as well. The reason that the dealer gave me was that Toyota produces less high variants with the red metallic mica color as opposed to other variant/color choices. This is ridiculous if you ask me. If they cannot provide a certain color then why even have it on the brochure? Please help/guide....someone? anyone?
