I am on the onset of selling my current car, the Swift Dzire VXi. The car is sold and will be handed over to the New owner in April 2011. So friends kindly help me in choosing a New Car. I am in search of a Sub-10 Lac Diesel Sedan. I test drove the below mentioned 2 Cars and my observations are mentioned below, I have added Hyundai Verna RB & Maruti SX-4 DDiS to the list of contenders, as they would be launched soon: 1. FIAT Linea MJD E+: My Favourite, i can’t hide the bias towards the Beauty +ves: • Fantastic Styling, nothing beats it on this count. • Frugal & refined 1.3 VGT Multijet Engine. • Features, features & features, it offers a lot more than the competition. • Legendary Ride & Handling. • Assurance of Extended Warranty & RSA. • I am just in love with the Steering Wheel ? -ves: • Fit & Finish in certain areas is still behind the competition for e.g.: Glove Box. • No Bottle holders at ALL. Heck, where will I keep the water bottles? I have two kids with me. • Low Ground Clearance. Can 16 Inchers from the T-Jet be fitted without the Warranty being Void? 2. VW Vento TDI Highline: +ves: • Powerful TDI Engine. Simply loved the Torque & power of the Engine. • Volkswagen Brand Image (especially in India) ? rest of the World it is debatable. • Interior Fit & Finish, which is Top Notch. No two questions about that. -ves: • Vibrations filtering on to the Gear Lever & Clutch Pedal. • Cost of Ownership is unknown. Heard VW’s are expensive to maintain. • Waiting period of 5 months. Heck what is VW thinking. • Around 55K more expensive than the Linea MJD E+. Apart from ACC there is nothing to talk about the features. • Transmission Tunnel hump is TOO high, seating a 3rd passenger is impossible. It will be painful even for a child to sit in between. • Bland styling, looks like a Polo with a boot. 3. Hyundai Verna RB: Soon to be launched. +ves: • Looks Awesome. • Hyundai A.S.S • 1.6 CRDi Diesel Mill. -ves: • Cannot comment on this part, will update when the car is launched. 4. Maruti Szuuki SX-4: Soon to be launched. +ves: • Looks Good. • Maruti's Trusted A.S.S • 1.3 VGT Multijet Engine. • Good Ground Clearance. -ves: • Cannot comment on this part, will update when the car is launched.
