Now that Maruti has rolled out an upgraded version of Alto at the existing price tag(the car looked good in the ad), its even more confusing for consumers like me who make buying decisions as if its the last decision they'll ever make in their lives. What this means is that we (and I speak for all who buy like me) take a lot of time deciding what to buy based on features, cost, price, benefits etc and then (if at all) reach a decision (Kunal knows what Im talking about). Decision - I hate this word. I hate making decisions, hate the word CHOICE even more.
Anyway, the topic here is the decision of buying a car. For a guy like me, who's been caught up in making a decision of going in for a new car (obviously, not buying a car, but thinking about it!!) is more of a trouble now. Though Alto has been given a facelift and all, it will still remain a small small car. Santro fares well on maybe looks and pedigree but is a dated car and upgrading from a santro to a santro really makes no sense at all. Zen, on the other hand is even more dated and doesnt warrant a buying choice as of now. Wagon - R, hmmm... I remember what Aseem used to say about this one - Its not a wagon, its not a car..... Its an AUTO yaar!!! Still it offers more in terms of comfort and engineering at the price its available at. Indica V2 - a solid car, but I wouldnt want my neighbours to think I have started renting out my car as a taxi. Palio, Poor Automobile, Leave It Out!!! Voilla, not bad, eh?!?!
Leaves me with Swift and Getz. While I like both of them for various reasons, I (obviously) still cant make my mind which is better. And for the price they are available, might as well put in a couple of lacs more and go in for a so called lambi gaadi, why not? So, Honda City and Hyundai Accent really mak..... .... .... ... .. .... ....
