Best Value for Money is Tata Bolt Revotron- XMS
Why it's best buy ? Best Power Figure 90 PS Approx & Best Torque 140 Nm- Closer to Diesel Engines (has turbocharger- rare for economical petrol cars) 3 power options :- You can use any of them as u like using ur brain or without using ur brain, say chose ECO for mileage when fuel is less or u r going long distance, chose 'SPORTS' for full power & pick up or 'CITY' for a balance of both. Dual Airbags, ABS are great safety add-ons & must have for safe & intelligent owners. They are one step to ensure you don't need to claim life insurance :) It's a heavy car so is more planted & secure compared to other light & popular & most selling cars of same category. Those light cars look faster while have less power & torque, just coz their metal sheets are light & prone to more damage. Bolt is heavy & powerful both, so mileage is bit less (+- 1-2 km/ltr than others) . For smart & intelligent people, their life & safety of their loved ones is definitely not cheaper than petrol or diesel. Music player is best under the cars worth even 8-10 lakhs. It is spacious than many best sellers. Looks premium from out & inside (in dark grey color with chromes & in white & mouse color too). It's selling less in the market so gives you unique car feel & exclusivity. You are not having a common car every other person has & then it has better features, safety, engine - the key things & unique looks- not so common. Tata's service is awsum these days, you will be getting follow up calls, free car check-up, wash camps & even movie tickets at times. Cost of service is less & service is required at 15000 km, so less hassle. They will make you free in couple of hours. 2-3 follow calls from different customer care centers ensure you had good experience. It's an Indian product so somewhere patriots have another way & reason to express themselves by buying indigenous car but i.e. not the only good reason. Coz the facts are already shared & make it value for money. Only drawback is that boot is smaller but still bigger than most selling car of this segment, few cubby holes inside the car for water bottles which has to be placed in big glovebox or behind the seat covers. Mileage is less in city & sports mode but then in eco mode you can increase it by reducing power at your will. If you drive it in 5th gear at highways around 45-55 km/hr you can get 18-21 kmpl from petrol car in ECO mode or even more if less clutch, break is used. City mileage is around 12 kmpl on frequent lights /stops/turns in "CITY Mode". ECO Mode will give 13kmpl or more. Sports will give 11 kmpl but acceleration is like sedan class (which are 2-3 lakhs costlier). The reason for less city mileage is shorter 1,2,3 gears which give you acceleration like costly cars (2-3 lakhs up the bracket) even after being a heavy car (150-200 kg heavy than most selling cars). But 4th & 5th are taller so acceleration is less but mileage improves hugely in these gears. I have got mileage of 20 kmpl in eco from Chandigarh to Delhi in early morning hours & 17.5 kmpl (approx) from Delhi/NCR-Ghaziabaad to Chandigarh (260 kms) in peak traffic hours n highways. From Chandigarh to Uttarakhand ( 340 km one way & 160 km full hilly road) i got mileage of 13.5 kmpl in city mode. I haven't breached speed of 100 km/hour in entire journey's as car was new & so was the driver :). We had done less than 1000 Kms together at the time of Delhi Trip & 2000 kms at the time of Uttarakhand trip. Most of the time car was driven within 20-90 km/hour range (hilly & plain terrain).
