Hi guys, Just a small back story to this decision. Haven't finalized yet and would love to hear your thoughts. I have been given a budget by my company to buy a car. They asked me to stick to Rs.7 lakh as a budget but they may stretch a bit above it. I am currently driving a 2007 Ford Fiesta so basically any hatchback would be a downgrade for me. And this may sound petty, but I have colleagues who were offered an undisclosed budget to buy cars from my organization and have ended up with basic versions of the Amaze and Toyota Etios Diesel. All the more reason for me to look for a sedan. The Ford Fiesta is sort of a family heirloom, so no plans to exchanging it. My budget constrained me to Swift DZire and Amaze, which was also stretching my budget. Amaze EMT came to 7.84 Lakhs on road but there is no availability till Feb and the showroom mentioned that there is expected to be a 10-20k price hike post December. Swift Dzire did not have the cabin room comfort. Even worse than Amaze and the boot is a bit of a joke. I went around other showrooms just to get data to compare these to other sedans and premium hatchbacks. Ended up at Fiat cafe where I expected the sales guy to hear my budget and show me the Punto. Instead when he heard I was considering the Dzire Ldi and Amaze EMT immediately mentioned that the Linea Classic which has an on road price of 8.6 lakhs can come within 8 lakhs. Comparing it to the Amaze EMT, the only feature that matters which was absent was the ABS and remote central locking. But the metal used was of a better gauge (at least feel wise) than amaze and the engine was not as noisy. The exterior is beautiful but the interiors were a bit of a let down. Especially the ac vent switch. I test drove the classic plus since classic wasn't available. He mentioned that both have rear ac vents (could someone confirm?). I expected the toned down engine to be a let down but it handled beautifully. I am not a major car enthusiast to differentiate between performance, but the feel was as good as, if not better than the Honda Amaze engine. I couldn't zoom past triple digits in the city traffic but the engine felt smooth and perhaps even better than the Ford Fiesta I am driving at present. The sales person mentioned he might work on more discounts (He had already offered me 60k discount) and would get back to me. When compared to Amaze EMT and Swift DZire LDi, this seems a much better car both in looks and performance. I would love to customize the dash board to make it look less..umm..cheap. Maybe wooden trims? (any suggestions?) Adding 30k more would give me decent music system, central locking and reverse parking sensors. Is there any reason why I should reconsider this decision? And if not, are there after market accessories I could add to add to the beauty of this car?
