Has to be the Superb, don't think there's a car out there with that comfort level, at even close to that price point.

You probably overlooked the requirement for cost of ownership to be LOW. Else the existing C would have done the job.

Wait for two months for the 2.0 CR model of the Superb. Current 2.0 TDI PD is a bit noisy when you are in the front seat. Good FE also. For a 100% city use and AC always on - my chipped Superb (TDI) is now stable at 9.9 to 10.1 kmpl.

Also please note both Superb and Passat come with stiff ride.

I would suggest Sonata CRDi. Its comes with a very comfy ride and has a spacious back seat. It very cheap to run and maintain. Though its not least prestigious car in the segment.

Since he has a better budget, I don't think he would go for a TSI but a TDI PD. TSI might give a mileage of 8-9 in city I guess

Go for Superb as you're looking for a chauffeur driven car and back seat comfort . C class and A4 both lie under the same category - they both have almost same running cost which should eliminate A4 from consideration . Passat on the other hand is overpriced according to me . Superb has got huge space , good features , amazing interiors and would come well within the budget . Do let us know what car you choose .

For even cheaper model, try Optra Diesel. Has space and comfort too with less expense. But Im not sure if you dad would be ready to sit in a car that costs less than 1/3rd of the current car.
But hey, just check on Altis Diesel. Im not sure about the launch but just heard around the corner. Goodluck!

i am thinking , if hes doing 100 kms daily on a superb .. what mechanical failures he has to tend to in a year or two ? Like if Clutch , then how much ?
If gear box , how much ?

What? If your Altis is returning 8, then something's seriously wrong with it. That, or its only floored all the time
