Check out the Innova although only the V variant will give you ABS and Airbags and that will cost more then 10. But I believe there are good discounts avaliable on the Innova so it's better not to write it off.

From the cars you have tested, I can see that the Linea almost made you go for it and it is in your short list so I'd say TD it and see how you feel.

I hate Beige interiors however good in quality they are.
That would eliminate almost all cars thanks to our obsession with 'luxurious beige.'

As an ex safari owner, nothing beats long distance journeys like the safari. Very relaxing to drive with the captain seats and superb suspension.

The corolla has a very scary feel at high speeds and would not recommend it.

ABS and airbags should not be fitted outside even if you get such an option.

Find a second hand civic in terms of performance, but FE is not great.

Top end diesel shouldn't cost your more then 7.75 OTR in Hyderabad.

go for the linea or consider the altis its the best VFM in that segment..
linea might have trouble finding service stations if plenty there in your area go for it.

1. Continue with your existing car OR buy Palio mjd for the time being & later on buy new TATA X-over
2. Buy a Safari
3. Try new Innova

Default Buy the cheapest Palio Diesel

I suggest in this economic crisis to purge your desire to spend big. Would be better off if you bought the cheapest PalioMJD and then put in these additions. You will be stunned at the torque you can get. If your heart is flexible then you can go for a second hand Elantra and modify it. The Elantra rules in the curves from what I have heard which is very important with the type of driving you are going to undertake.

P-Tronic additional box-units :: power kit ::engine chips :: diesel chips :: power box-units :: diesel tuning :: power box-unit :: chiptuning :: increase engine power :: diesel booster :: TDI tuning :: additional box-unit (NEW)

After the above you can put in the panel filter from pipercross.
Panel Filters | Pipercross Air Filters


************* is in India.
