Who needs a new car? - My aunt. Why a new car is needed? - The current car, 2008 SX4 is old and PETROL powered. The SX4 is will be transferred to someone in our company. What's needed from the new car? - The car is always going to be chauffer driven hence comfort is priority number 1. Tall boy preferred. - Budget is upto 10 to 10.5 lakhs on road. - Diesel engine. - It will be driven mainly in city for short distances with a run to Lonavala twice / thrice a month. Being the car nut in the family, I was asked to suggest some cars. My recommendations: 1.) Nissan Sunny. 2.) Skoda Rapid. 3.) Maruti Ertiga. Nissan Sunny: Checked out the car and found it supreme in comfort. The back seat is a luxurious place to be and it has a huge boot too. The Sunny is actually a CAAAR . Drove the car and it's a DUD but that's not a concern at all. Turbo lag is minimal and the car is going to be sprightly in City. In short, this was the leading contender and was leading in all requirements except that it's not a tall boy. Skoda Rapid: I call JMD. They take my number and say sales will call you. No calls till evening. I call Skoda helpline and things move. Next day I get a call from the dealer and I ask them to email me the price list. That takes another day to arrive. Nothing after that. I told the dealer i need to test drive the car, dealer said we will co-ordinate with you. It's been 3 days and no calls. Maybe Skoda is selling a lot of Diesels. Wonder why Fiat is bad mouthed for not responding! Maruti Ertiga: I call the S.K.Maruti, Navi Mumbai. They say price list will be emailed to me shortly. I say I want to test drive the car at my office which is about 4-5 kms from the showroom. The sales guy says that is not possible as it's a new car and many people are coming to see & drive it in the showroom so management has said the car cannot be taken to customers for a test drive! I tell them the car will be bought by the MD of the company (My uncle) so I don't know the logic behind expecting people to come to the showroom. Sales guy say's he can't do anything about it! Anyway, a few hours later, I get a brain wave and I send my colleage to check the car & ask him to take the test drive and bring the car to my factory where we can check it out. Clearly, they cannot stop the customer from driving it to where he wants! That shows how illogical the 'car cannot leave showroom for test drive's' logic is. Anyway, my colleague goes and comes back and tells me demo car is in Pune for some road show! So much for car cannot go 5 kms for a test drive to a customer but can travel 150 kms to Pune for a road show! Didn't Maruti have showrooms in Pune too?! Anyway, I am going to see the car in person now. Will update tomorrow. If you guys have any suggestions based on our requirements do let me know! Thanks.
