Gagan Sir,

My budget is approximately 6-8 lacs. So I'm confused about these cars, new vs second.

New : Swift / i20 / dzire
Second : Verna / City / Ciaz

New Cars:
Peace of mind atleast for 5 years or more,
Better mileage, Better refinement, newer platforms and thus better technology,
New features like or so called plastic toys :)

Second hand C segment:
Premium Car by all angles, ride quality, safe and comfort because a segment plus cars.
Low cost of ownership by 50% approx. due to lesser interest amt, insurance amt, less depreciating cost, less loss of value.
But more maintenance, gearbox or clutch assembly failures.. And the bigger point is mileage.

Sir, can you please help me from your knowledge, which car to consider?

The budget of 6 to 8 Lakh is reasonably good
Although can get in higher up range of Swift, I20 - but care to move to a Sedan - a 3 year Old Honda City can well come in your budget too

Yes - you need to see first if can get
> a good well maintained Honda city VMT and onwards
> Owner selling not because of any issues in car but for upgrade or no use
> car is still in warranty (extended warranty)
> No accidents, well maintained exteriors, interiors

If can get in such a good car with 20K to 25K Kms on odo in a reasonable price of 6.5 to 7 Lakh - it may be worth to go with it
But - very important to check for such a maintained car

If not - a new car is always an option
So - may search and explore for a Used car subject to your requirement. Of the choices given in Used car - Honda city is what a reasonably good one.
