What is the real value for money car in the Indian market- across the segments, whether small car, mid size or diseal and petrol etc..?
If you are migrating from a two-wheeler or a Premier Padmini to a new car with lower budgets, the Maruti 800 and the Alto LXi are great options. These cars are absolute value for money, have incredible fuel efficiency, perform commendably, and most of all, are very easy to drive, even on bad Indian roads.
Next, decide which fuel your car will use: petrol or Diesel. Choose Diesel, and your choices are fairly limited. Also, your decision for a diesel car should be so only if you have a lot of driving to do.
