Hi All, First of all I am glad that I have become a member of this Forum, I am from Bangalore, I own a Spark LT Since Oct 2008, From last six months I was looking for upgrading to a diesel vehicle, Positives about Spark 1. Peppy Engine 2. Fun to drive within City 3. Overtaking in city is easy as it is small 4. Has all the basic requirements except AirBag and ABS Negatives 1. When Fully loaded , It gets difficult to go beyond 110, Also vehicle Steering wheel Starts vibrating after I cross 100 KMPH, I never felt safe in car after that speeds, 2. Mileage - I am spending close to 8 Rupee Per Kilometer for which I can hire a taxi everyday to commute 3. Safety - Car has no airbags, ABS My Monthly Driving is around 900 KMs of which 500 is city 400 in Highways, I thought as many times as I can that Do I need a diesel car now or shall I continue using my sparky, But sadly Sparky milege in city was low , I was getting Max 10 KMPL, if driven sedately, Following were the decision makers to go for a new car 1. I am getting a car Lease policy from my office where I can save around 50% tax I am paying everymonth 2. I got a fair deal for my existing car, around 2.2L for a 4 year old spark (20000 KMS driven) 3. The New car will be diesel,Hence I will save around 2K per month in fuel I spent hours of reading in Team-BHP, TeamFiat, Carwale, Overdirve , What not, Then I Short listed following cars 1. Fiat Punto 90HP diesel (Unfortunately it has been converted to Sports model with a price hike of around 20K) 2. Ford Fiesta Classic My Heart says Punto!, Head says Fiesta, I need advice My requirement is car should be fun to drive, Excellent Handler, and should return a great mileage, Hence I chose above cars, For Fiat Punto Sports dealer has quoted 8.6 lacs on road with extended warranty - Is this price worth to pay for punto Sports? Fiesta Classic I can get for 9.5lacs onroad, Please advice which one is a better car?
