  16. thanks for the info but i would like to ask you which is best diesel car below 4 lakh with good mileage i can get

  17. you have not given right information about BEAT DIESELS AND PETROL

  18. Ford figo is good.

  19. hero cycle is best for milage and comfort and space

  20. Everyone telling diesel cars engine will get damaged easily!!. Is it true ?

  21. None of this car belongs to value for money catagery, just lower at price, no demand in resale market.

  22. cycle is not best in term of money saving but as well in keeping good health. I recommand to go for cycle of any co. and live life without tress.

  23. This site is very usefull in assessing which diesel hatchback is convenient in comfort and price.One can judge which is best among these,provided,the information given are bear to accurate.

    I think you forget cheapest diesel car with highest average more than any of above Indica EV2 . So this comparison is not complete as per norms. You can say moderate cheaper diesel car comparison & not cheapest diesel cars in India. Since sales volume of Indica EV2 is better than some of above. Also if you are considering premium but with best average Honda amaze & Indigo ECS is not there. I request you to put all information including technical specification & cost in tabular format & you will get your post is not accurate

  25. In 6 laks you are getting Tata Indigo ecs sedan top diesel model with 25 kpl mileage, include that in this.

    The best small car is E2O especially the ground clearance… and it also saves you tons of money … out of 36 features E2O comes on top with 16. Swift comes out as 2nd best… Nano comes out as 3rd …. while the top selling Alto gets only the 4th position… the Santro (CNG) comes out as the most expensive of all small car to drive due to its poor milage. Check out our full review at:

  28. Honda amaze is awesome…Guys go for itt!! Its only carr where companey says average of less but car givess moree….my amaze gives average of 27.5 diesel

    ford figo 1 year experiece. Nice car.

  33. Verito — 1st choice (adv- space, mileage,comfort ,drivability
    diadv- looks)
    Dezire — 2nd option ( adv- service & drivability & status
    diadv- space is crunchy, no comfort in back seat)
    Indica ev2 — go for this if you need car for usage, not for status & looks…
    everything is perfect, it suits indian roads better
    Ford Figo — 3rd option
    ( adv- everything is perfect, only milage in comarision is less
    diadv- service not that extent but for metros its gud)

  34. fig0 izzzzzz best…..milezzzz ,comertble & & this segment lowest price
