Well I'am planning to buy a new sedan in the C2 segment and have started checking out the market for the available options. I had dreamt of the Honda City since long, hence this was on the top of the list. I have also considered the Vento, Verna and lastly the Linea. City was excellent to drive in the city but in bad roads it was bumpy. You don't feel the steering at all. Plush interiors but lacks features. Vento was good but the vento diesel at Rs. 11.20 lakhs OTR was out of question. Verna was full of features but somehow I did not like the car. Plus the attitude of the dealer was something that I could not stand, though I own a Santro at present. Then my wife insisted that I should look at the Linea, though FIAT was never in my plan. I booked online for the test drive of Linea T Jet and started reading the reviews of Linea in the net. I specially liked the thred of Bala and J.Ravi and I have read the full thread. In the meantime I had two test drives of the MJD but the Tjet was never brought for TD. I would invite suggestions from the learned fraternity for a good sedan that would suit my purpose. I have a monthly driving of 1300-1400 KMs. I love driving my car and I have done three/ four trips of more than 1000 KMs. (one way) on my Santro. I would therefore love to have a car that would be fun to drive and I would prefer to migrate to diesel. I live in an industrial town and the roads are wide and less crowded. We never have a bumper to bumper traffic in our roads. As I have mentioned earlier Honda City was my fascination. I dreamt of this car since I joined service in 1995. At that time City was a sheer luxury for the middle class people. I had almost decided on the City till a few days back, until my wife insisted on the Linea. She loves the car from it's external appearance. She does'nt understand anything about driving or handling and has left that for me to decide. I have driven petrol car since my college days (say for 22 years) and I had neven driven a diesel car except for the two TD of MJD Emotion. I started the TD rather reluctantly and thought that I would obviously find some fault with the MJD Emotion and tell my wife that I did'nt like the car. But I was clearly knocked off by the car and actually I have started loving the Linea MJD after the second TD. I even TD the City immediately after the second TD of the Linea and I have started asking myself what is so special about the City? The City V costs around 10.15L OTR and the Linea MJD Emotion costs around 10.4L OTR. I feel on negotiation the cost of Linea might still come down at least at the same level with City. Also, I was offered Linea T Jet (2011 model) at 8.8L OTR. Since the colour of T jet available at the dealer was not to my liking, FIAT even offered to get one as per my choise from the factory at the same price, but obviously 2011 model. I am totally confused now between the three. The City seems to be taking a backseat and the Linea is slowly coming to the front. But all my colleagues say that I should go for the City because it is a better package overall and the Honda engine is proven. I do not consider resale value for I intend to use this car for atleast 8-10 years.
