Maybe a dual channel RD Dieseltronic tuning box will save the day.

Best of luck for your quest.
Do keep us updated about the car. Have you planned to get any accessories installed? Did you try the verna 1.6 diesel?

This is something only you can decide. If you really like the SUV form factor or if you absolutely need the high GC, then you should go for the Creta 1.4. However, the Verna diesel is a better package for the amount of money you spend. You get many more features and a much better engine with the Verna. If it was me, I'd go for the Verna 1.6 diesel.

I know I am going OT.

Given the state of the roads in our cities and highways, how easy or difficult would it be to drive a Verna vs. Creta? My concern would be the GC only when I ask this question. I drive a WagonR which has good GC and I tend to be careful. But still I have had a few underbody hits/scrapes in the past. I feel, with a sedan, it will deteriorate a LOT more.

Yes, you will be much more relaxed when driving the Creta over bad roads when compared to a low slung sedan. I haven't driven the Verna but can relate to this when comparing the Creta to my daily drive(Figo diesel) or my father's daily ride(the Jetta).

My daily drive is mostly through highways, so I really enjoy my drives in those slow slung and powerful cars. But yes, if your journey primarily is through bad patches of roads, then you may not be able to exploit the better engine of the Verna and it may make more sense to go for a Creta and compromise on the power and features. If you can manage to be a bit careful(and a bit worried) while negotiating those bad patches of roads, then you should go for the Verna and enjoy the power and the extra features.

This is when it was glaringly obvious that it was not just my parents but even I am used to a commanding view of the road and the low seating was not comfortable to me either.
Haha, The City has the best seating compared to many other cars in it's segment! It's seats are high set, ingress/egress is most comfortable. I agree you don't get a commanding view out: that's because of the high set dash.

Which will be better VFM, Creta 1.4 E+ or S model? The price difference is around 1.7 lacs plus taxation as E+ is below 10 lacs ex showroom. If i purchase E+, what all features of S model can be installed at the dealership.
