I'm finally posting this after searching for a few months. After getting the Avventura, my better half and I are spoilt by the Fiat drive. My better half has evinced her interest in any small hatchback that has the handling of Fiat. She likes the Palio in particular and wants power. Yes, she is an excellent and experienced driver. The Avvy is too big for city drives according to us. We have a Maruti Zen that is in perfect condition but would like to change it now after all these years. The following cars were shortlisted and rejected: Alto: Would be a come down from the Zen. Rejected Swift: She does not like its looks. Figo: Too boxy. rejected Nissan Micra: very interested but after a test drive, very disappointed with handling and performance. Totally rejected Bolt: Taxi faced, so rejected We checked out an S10 and were very very impressed with its size vs performance. We have decided to get any of the 1.6 litre Fiat cars, be it the Palio GTX, Stile Sport 1.6 or the S10. We do not follow cricket and so the S10's extra badging makes no difference to us. We just want a good 1.6 litre Fiat. Finding one in Hyderabad has been very difficult. And the new ridiculous Telangana RTA rules make purchasing an out-of-state car very expensive as life tax has to be again paid even for such an old car. Besides, I simply lack the time to go to another city to check out a car. Any help would be most welcome. Thank you for reading.
