Default What is your ideal three car garage under ₹1,00,00,000 (1 Crore)?

Hello,

As human beings, we yearn for the need to scratch that itch.

For example:
  • A Businessman in you wants that German Sedan
  • A Teenager in you wants that Hot Hatch
  • An Adventurer in you wants that big old Off-Roader
  • A Family Man in you wants that big MUV/SUV that seats 7
  • A Hippie in you wants a Van Life (Or is it just me?)
  • A Nature Lover in you wants that Electric Car
    and so on...

We can only achieve so much in life. And It's obviously impossible to fulfill these with just one car. As it is getting more common for Indian households to have multiple car garages,
What would be your Ideal Three Car Garage under 1 Crore Rupees?

Only rule is, the car in question must be currently sold in India.

Since I am a family of two currently, here goes my choices:

1. BMW 330i M Sport - 48 lacs

2. Toyota Fortuner 4WD - 40 lacs

3. Volkswagen Polo GT - 12 lacs

Interesting thread!

1. BMW X3 - For city/ weekend drives.
2. Ford Endeavour 4*4 AT- For weekend drives/ long road trips.
3. Ford Ecosport AT - For daily city duties.

I know this list will touch 1.1 Cr, but can be had for 1Cr. after discounts.

For #3, heart would want Polo GT Tsi but due to DSG, I will stay away. And the fact that I already be having X3 to have fun!

For me, one of them will definitely be the MG ZS EV. It is a fantastic car, and the range limitation in a 3 car garage is easily manageable.

The second car will be a 7 seater - Kia Carnival

The third one will be a sedan, I haven't decided which.


Now, where do I get that crore from?

As everyone seems to have the same idea, I too will go with a 330i
1. BMW 330i M sport (50L approx) - The fun/premium car
2. Tata Hexa 4x4 XT Manual (21L approx) - The long tourer/rough-roader
3. MG ZS EV (27L approx) - The city runabout

The remaining 2L is all that I do have currently with me.

I have come up with 2 lists, and I am finding it really hard to decide (in my dreamland) which trio I would actually go for. So here it goes-

1. With the first list, I have taken a slight leniency when it comes to the limit of 1 Cr-

i. BMW X5 xDrive 30d xLine-

Name:  bmwx5default.jpg
Views: 14890
Size:  31.5 KB

This car will give me the best of both worlds. Driving please, monstrous torque from the diesel and due to it being an SUV, will empower me take this car anywhere without worrying about those unnatural speed breakers

It currently costs about 99L in Mumbai.

ii. The 2nd car would have to be a reliable one(no Germans ) which still isn't too bad to drive. The Grand i10 Turbo fits the bill at around 9L on road.

Name:  HyundaiGrandi10NiosColours.jpg

iii. The BMW G310R for cheap thrills-

What is your ideal three car garage under ₹1,00,00,000 (1 Crore)?-bmwg310r_625x300_1530940251504.jpg

Now the total of the above 3 cars comes to slightly more than 1.10 crore but with discounts(at least on the X5), this can be brought down to around the 1.05 Cr.

2. This list is much closer to the limit of 1 Cr-

i. E-Class 350d at 89L on-road.

The baby S-Class, Mercedes badge, sedan dynamics etc. are some of the positives I can think of.


ii. Seltos HTK diesel at about 13.5L on-road-

For the times when ground clearance is needed.


iii. I am going to stick to the 2 wheeler Beemer in this list as well, the G310R-

Views:	540

ID:	2037544

The total of this list may come out to around 1.05 Cr, but with some discounts, can be brought close to the 1 Cr mark.



To summarise both the lists, I won't ever compromise on my primary/most important ride, even if it means compromising on the secondary and tertiary option. A 3 series, an Endeavour and an i10 may sound more balanced, but nah! that's not how it is for me.

Now to decide between the above 2 lists, truth be told I am a bit more inclined towards the 1st list. This is due to the fact that due to an SUV(X5), I need not worry about taking my car out of some known regions of Mumbai. I can pretty much take this car anywhere throughout the country, with only the size/width of the vehicle as a constraint. I can't say the same about the E-Class as it may involve 'choosing' my journeys and destinations with the E-Class and taking out the 'modest' Seltos to the paths unknown.


With that being said, ideally, if the roads in India were better, accompanied by scientifically made speed breakers, I would go ahead with the 2nd list and enjoy the feeling of driving a sedan with a Mercedes badge on it, along with the loads of practicality a full sized diesel sedan brings to the table compared to a 2 seater sports car costing roughly the same.



P.S. If the 3rd choice has to be strictly a car, I would go ahead with the Kwid 0.8 RXL and use it in case of emergencies, as a loaner car when required, to teach someone driving etc.

There is a parallel thread on multiple inexpensive cars against one expensive car. I have voted for multiple inexpensive cars and shall go by that (surpassing the limit of 3 car garage)

1. Abarth Punto - 10L
2. Toyota Camry - 45L
3. Jeep Compass Trailhawk (O) 4*4 - 26L
4. Ford Figo S TDCI - 8.5L
5. Polo GT TSI - 11.5 L

The above shall be my garage if I had a luxury to spend a crore on cars.

My choice of 3 cars adding roughly upto the eight digit figure:

1. Toyota Innova Crysta 2.4 ZX AT (~30 lakhs) : Practical, spacious and ever-so-reliable 7 seater. Perfect highway express for inter-city runs and errands with the extended family in tow. Reasonably quick and fun to drive as well.

2. Hyundai Kona (~25 lakhs) : EV tech (fun in it's own way), compact size with decent range for intra city commutes. Highly economical to run and maintain (?). The daily driver.

3. Skoda Superb L&K (Petrol, ~42 lakhs) : The luxury sedan for highway drives, leisure trips.
