Need a decent car because two people need to get out the house now, the new one being me.

So targetting 20-25L.

Wouldn't mind spending less, lol.

 

I don't see any value in going more than that. Until and unless there is a real tangible benefit in going over that, not gonna spend more. That's why Honda Civic was checking all the points.

 

I don't like Creta, hate the look.

Taigun is really boring, interior wise.

Tucson is gonna be closer to 30L.

Can consider Slavia and Kushaq.

Harrier or Safari?

 

I see you are in Delhi, abse kam road tax hai bhai, maze lo zindagi ke!!

If you are checking Slavia then check out Honda City too. Almost all needed features, great engine, Honda reliability and it is really spacious. 

 

Harrier and Safari only comes in diesel. For your usage and NCR ban scenario stick with petrol only. 

 

XUV700 could have been a good option but waiting is too long. Similar is for Creta, Seltos. 

 

Kushaq might have less waiting. Compass is overpriced plus Keep service is a nightmare. 

 

How about Hector? 

The only issue it has is low mileage but as your usage is quite less that's a non issue. Otherwise very good engine and all creatures comforts. Do check it out.

I will start checking out Hector, Harrier and Slavia.

If Civic 2022 would have been released then it would have been no question purchase for me.

Thanks.

I would totally recommend going for Seltos. Nothing beats the looks, features and resale value. I have paid through the nose for servicing my Tata Aria. They literally wait for your warranty to get over and then start finding errors that previously werent there and cost a lot to fix. I am sorry to say that Tata Motors is a really great car manufacturer but a very poor service provider. I rejected Nexon EV for the same reason. I cry every time I fill petrol but I will not touch another Tata for a decade more. 

 

My relatives in Noida bought a Tata Harrier after riding my Aria (it is a great car) and they were blown away with the quality. But their new car was literally in the garage for 6 months. 

 

 

Skoda:- driver's car. sh*t service. Poor resale. 

Honda:- Can close shop anytime.

Tata:- Great cars. Poor service.

Maruti:- Lel car.

Hyundai:- Shitty design.

 

Kia:- FTW.

Yes, I myself am planning to get the 5th gen city sometime this year. Do have a look.

Unfortunately, yes. People think Honda might be the next company to exit the Indian market after Ford. 
No new launches, just facelifts:roflroll:
There is no significant upgrades or a WOW factor in any of their cars and let's not forget the demand for SUVs here.

And not to forget quality has gone to sh*t, and it is no more an aspirational brand anymore.

Seltos is great, if it weren't for the short-change that they do to the Indian customers in terms of safety.
For that alone, they don't deserve the sales figure that they are able to put up.
But alas, despite knowing that, most Indians don't have a problem in going for it :wallbash:

I would say, keep away from Seltos, if you're going to take it out on long highway usage. For City use, it should be fine!

I had taken a test drive of the 5th gen city 2 weeks back, and found the quality to be quite good. In the sedan segment, Honda still seems to be near the top.

 

Autocar had made this comparison video in this segment.

Only thing I am looking for is a good sound system, a great console, Carplay/Android Auto which is really fluid (not sure if Indian options have wireless options?).

The last one is absolutely the priority.

Other than that, a decent mileage with good ride quality and experience.

An electric car would work perfectly for this kind of usage. The Kona is worth checking out. Don’t sweat on wireless CarPlay/AA. There are adapters available for both and they work well.

IKR For middle class Indians Honda has been the biggest aspirational brand for generations. It's always been you start with a Maruti 800/Alto and hope to buy a Honda City one day. I know the times have changed a lot since then but seeing honda leave would be really sad.

@KunjanPSDcheck the octavia style variant, I picked up L&K variant 10days back and boy it’s awesome. you might find 2021 manufactured car with discounts. 
Have both Creta 1st gen diesel 1.6 and Tucson 4*4 pre face lift. By driving all these I can defiantly tell you if you want driving pleasure go for Skoda or VW. If you want fuss free ownership just go for Honda or Hyundai.

Charging is not favourable yet because of screwed up parking. And I don't want to use an adapter for something which can come built in.

Safety rating is the only reason for me to not consider Seltos. It's better than MG Hector for sure when it comes to other areas but can't really compromise on safety.

@KunjanPSD
I would recommend the Honda City first. Great sedan, tried and tested for quite some time here.

My second recommendation would be the new Slavia. Skoda is improving their after-sales to catch up with competitors. Though I would suggest you wait for some time if you're looking to get this car as it's new.

An SUV doesn't fit your needs as it's a large vehicle and it consumes more fuel when compared to sedans.
