As long as you go for the 1.2l Grand i10, it punches way above it's weight in terms of power.For me at the moment it would be the grand i10. I got one as a rental currently and it pleasantly surprised me, to the extend that I'm seriously considering trading my SO's up in on one. Might test drive the auto option to compare. I sighed when I saw what they were giving me, was hoping on a new vivo as I haven't driven one yet, but now I kind of like the little screamer.
I would actually, more space, cheaper than the Hyundai, it has all the features you need in a modern car and it will be cheaper to maintain in the long run since I keep my cars for longer beyond warranties and service plans.Budget wise, the lower the installment the better, but I was actually looking at the Hyundai Grand i10, so that price range is good. Renault though, are there any issues with parts? Would any of you choose the Renault over the Hyundai?
Stay away from the Datsun Go and the Kwid. Pick and choose from other makes, Suzuki has decent specials sometimes, check their Ignis perhaps if you are into that type of cars.Not so much feeling the Sandero, was looking at the Renault Kwid, but reviews not so great.
Well, I actually did it. Took the new Suzuki Swift and not regretting it one bit. Depends on the type of driving you do though, it's fine for the occasional 200-300km trip but completely the wrong option if it's a regular long distance commute.Hi!
If you had to go the option of brand new, what entry level cars would be a good option?
Also, any strong feelings on the manual vs automatic divide?
Nobody is going to try hijack a Swift.Thanks for all the advice. I'm a bit of an anxious driver (near miss hijacking incident a few years back), so automatic just feels more comfortable. So that, and price, are big deciding factors.
Maybe also look at 2 year old vehicles, you will be able to get a car from the compact hatch segment, most of the cars from that segment have better Autos than entry level vehicles, such as the Opel Corsa, Kia Rio, Hyundai i20, Suzuki Baleno, Mazda 2, Ford Fiesta.Thanks for all the advice.
