Comapre and suggest best buy between Verna, Honda City and Vento.

Comparing Honda City to Verna nd Vento is really a good consideration set as each one of them are good suitors for your money. No one car is perfect in all respect, but then that's the fun as one is forced to efine one's need from a new car that much more clearly and exhaustively, which finally helps in taking the best decision. 


I want to buy sedan car, have short listed three cars Honda City, Vento & Verna , but I am confused between petrol & diesel 


Comapre and suggest best buy between Verna, Honda City and Vento.


Petrol VS diesel story is driven by your daily usage, means KMs that you drive every day. Mathematically you can calculate your monthly diesel and petrol consumption. Take ARAI as the basis to calculate petrol and diesel consumption/month. The value difference between the two which will be favour of diesel car for any model, then needs to be compared with additional price that you would have paid for the diesel car for a given model. In case you are getting your car financed, add the additional EMI cost also to the equation.

Mathematics

A = (Monthly Kms/ARAI Mileage)* Petrol cost

B = (Monthly Kms/ARAI Mileage)* Diesel cost

C = Additional Diesel acquisition cost

D= Additional EMI cost for diesel car bought under finance

Situation 1 - Car bought with own funds - No finance

If A > B + C/no of months you plan to keep the car - Then go for Diesel car else, settle for Petrol car

Situation 2 - Car bought under finance

If A > B + C/no of months you plan to keep the car + D - Then go for Diesel car else, settle for Petrol car

ARAI MILEAGE

Fuel Type                            City                        Verna                    Vento

Petrol (KMPL)                    16.8                        17.43                     15.04

Diesel (KMPL)                    -                              23.5                        20.54                                               


If in case you plan to buy a diesel car then your choice gets reduced to 2 cars; Verna and Vento as Honda City does not come with a diesel engine.

In our opinion, what you must do first is decide on fuel type and then look at the models.

 

Vento, July 28 2016.

VISITOR                                                              Does the new Vento 1.6 comfort line petrol have a led lighting along with the headlamps?                                                                             

 

AGENT                                                                Morning     

 

AGENT                                                                Let me check           

 

VISITOR                                                              Morning     

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

VISITOR                                                              Also I have a slight confusion           

 

VISITOR                                                              Could you clear it for me? 

 

VISITOR                                                              See actually I am planning to buy a new car. I have two options Vento petrol 1.6 comfort line and city petrol sv manual                          

 

VISITOR                                                              Which do I go for? 

 

AGENT                                                                personally both cars have very competent engines               

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

AGENT                                                                in my opinion both are equally good ride quality   

 

AGENT                                                                however on popularity which impacts resale it will be City               

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                plus interiors of City are plusher than Vento            

 

VISITOR                                                              What about the seating comfort for the passengers?           

 

AGENT                                                                I drive the older city and have been quite happy    

 

AGENT                                                                rear seat comfort duets its well bolstered seats with decent thigh support is very comforting                                                                             

 

VISITOR                                                              In which one?         

 

AGENT                                                                only down side In City is tighter suspension which transfer road bumps to passengers        

 

AGENT                                                                City              

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                I have satin Vento not excited         

 

AGENT                                                                sat in           

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              Does the Vento have any other problems?               

 

AGENT                                                                have you test driven these cars      

 

VISITOR                                                              Yes               

 

VISITOR                                                              2 or 3 weeks back  

 

AGENT                                                                Ok so let's go with your impressions            

 

AGENT                                                                maybe we can Baildon that               

 

AGENT                                                                Build on     

 

VISITOR                                                              I felt the Vento more silent than the city   

 

VISITOR                                                              The manual transmission of the Vento was smoother than that of city and also the driving comfort was very smooth                         

 

AGENT                                                                on transmission gear slotting does get notchy at timeliness city, but I have driven it really long and hard but did not find it tiring

 

AGENT                                                                hope you are not tall           

 

VISITOR                                                              No I am not              

 

VISITOR                                                              5.5 or 5.6    

 

VISITOR                                                              that is it     

 

AGENT                                                                my other worry on Vento is the gory stories of spare parts

 

VISITOR                                                              ?? 

 

AGENT                                                                I did start this discussion saying that both are competent cars         

 

AGENT                                                                spare part delay etc. service apathy etc      

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

VISITOR                                                              That way    

 

AGENT                                                                I have a friend who had a Vento one of the first buyers, he always cursed cost of servicing, not that City is easy on pocket                        

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                another she gave up the polo after 2 years thanks to service and parts        

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                having said that Other family members have Vento diesel and they are thrilled with it      

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              Other than the service cost issue does the Vento have any other problems due to which I should not be looking into buying it?  

 

AGENT                                                                you seem to be like in the Vento   

 

AGENT                                                                no not nothing major other than service however as mentioned earlier resale could be a problem                                                           

 

VISITOR                                                              Yeah kind off           

 

VISITOR                                                              I don’t care about the resale            

 

AGENT                                                                during a test drive how did you find the suspension I feel that's too soft is my understanding correct                                                               

 

AGENT                                                                of winter   

 

VISITOR                                                              I felt it fine               

 

AGENT                                                                sorry Vento              

 

VISITOR                                                              didn’t come to know much on a bumpy road            

 

VISITOR                                                              Other than performance from the looks I liked the Vento's steering wheel and the gear knob more attractive than that of the city    

 

AGENT                                                                is it because between the two Vento steering gave better road feedback than city or you felt city steering to be light                              

 

AGENT                                                                I personally prefer lighter steering as they are less tiring   

 

VISITOR                                                              both actually           

 

VISITOR                                                              And also the looks of the steering wheel and the gear knob             

 

AGENT                                                                did have a chance to drive into a turn harder            

 

VISITOR                                                              No

 

AGENT                                                                with both cars, my exp is more positive on city       

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                I find it more fun to drive, however I hate it's suspension  

 

VISITOR                                                              Mm              

 

AGENT                                                                particularly as a passenger

 

VISITOR                                                              At the back seat of the Vento at the mid-section there is the hump.             

 

VISITOR                                                              where the mid passenger keeps his leg      

 

AGENT                                                                you are talking about the floor hump           

 

VISITOR                                                              right            

 

AGENT                                                                but that's true for city but not as prominent             

 

VISITOR                                                              Will that cause a problem for the person sitting in middle?              

 

VISITOR                                                              In the Vento?          

 

AGENT                                                                long distance yes   

 

AGENT                                                                ut shorter distance no         

 

AGENT                                                                we aroused it          

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              Will it be uncomfortable for a 6 feet tall person to sit inside a Vento?         

 

VISITOR                                                              Because i felt the cabin height a bit low     

 

AGENT                                                                I will send you a comparative link, check expert rating, you will be happy being a Vento fan                                                                             

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

AGENT                                                                also check specs and dimensions you will confirm your height issue            

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              So what do you say if I go for a Vento. Yes or no?   

 

AGENT                                                                I can't fight love     

 

VISITOR                                                              Just ask your opinion           

 

AGENT                                                                I think my preference is quite obvious, but then Even Vento is a good buy for a person like you for whom resale (and correctly so) does not matter    

 

AGENT                                                                both are equally good options        

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

AGENT                                                                and I am not being diplomatic         

 

VISITOR                                                              I know        

 

VISITOR                                                              I just wanted to know if the Vento had any flaws that had come into notice             

 

AGENT                                                                no I am sure you would have read many reviews; it's a competent car one hasn't heard major negatives on the car                                    

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

AGENT                                                                http              //www.ecardlr.com/car-compare/Vento-vs-new-Honda-city.aspx

 

AGENT                                                                LInk for expert rating           

 

AGENT                                                                also in spec section check dimensions         

 

VISITOR                                                              Will there be any design change for the Vento very soon?

 

AGENT                                                                Not that one ha sheard of  

 

VISITOR                                                              Vento very               

 

VISITOR                                                              ?? 

 

AGENT                                                                what is that              

 

VISITOR                                                              Will there be any design change for the Vento very soon?

 

AGENT                                                                I am not aware of it              

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

VISITOR                                                              What about city any new facelift? 

 

AGENT                                                                basis my knowledge one is expecting an SUV from them not a new Vento

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

AGENT                                                                I doubt no news     

 

VISITOR                                                              Ok

 

AGENT                                                                anything else          

 

VISITOR                                                              That is all. thanks

 

Honda City, June 10 2016.

VISITOR                                                              i have booked orchid pearl white  

 

VISITOR                                                              they say now not available               

 

VISITOR                                                              which colour is the best     

 

VISITOR                                                              Honda city 2016 cvt               

 

AGENT                                                                My reply is going to be a delayed response Please bear      

 

AGENT                                                                Ok I m a lover of sliver and whites 

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              in white which is the best 

 

VISITOR                                                              taffeta white or orchid pearl please suggest             

 

AGENT                                                                pearl definitely has a good sheen but since it’s not available you seem to have no option 

 

VISITOR                                                              ok 

 

VISITOR                                                              i have paid already               

 

AGENT                                                                so what are they saying is the col discontinued       

 

VISITOR                                                              yes

 

AGENT                                                                There’s no chance a color of a car can be discontinued until the car itself discontinued. There must be shortage of color availability though. All you can do is to wait or go with the other color options.

 

VISITOR                                                              I think so. thanks 

Comparison: City vs Verna vs Vento, April 12, 2016.

VISITOR                                                      when is vios going to launch in India?

 

VISITOR                                                      We got to know that it's tentative month of launching is May?

 

VISITOR                                                      Is it right?

 

AGENT                                                        Unfortunately, as per our information a full blown new car from Toyota is only expected around early 2017

 

VISITOR                                                      Oh k ! Is it confirmed?

 

VISITOR                                                      Could you tell about cars excluding Toyota ?

 

AGENT                                                        Which cars are we talking about?

 

VISITOR                                                      We were talking about Toyota vios !

 

VISITOR                                                      Do you roughly know about other cars excluding Toyota?

 

AGENT                                                        That’s what I meant when I asked which cars or maybe from which manufacturer

 

VISITOR                                                      Wen is Skoda Rapid new model going to launch ?

 

AGENT                                                        Both the Vento and Rapid has just being discontinued, I see no reason for them to come back so soon

 

VISITOR                                                      Which is best car among these -?

 

VISITOR                                                      Skoda Rapid , VW Vento, Honda City, Hyundai Verna ?

 

VISITOR                                                      For performance, suspension, features, and best ride?

 

AGENT                                                        Hold please let me check. Plus and any case since Vento and Rapid are not being sold, discussing about them will be of no use

 

VISITOR                                                      Oh k

 

VISITOR                                                      so Vento and rapid are going to come with new model and looks?

 

AGENT                                                        I am confused as to what are you looking for

 

VISITOR                                                      Actually I’m looking for car up till range 12 to 13 lakhs !

 

AGENT                                                        because you seem to be going back to cars that are not in circulation or cars that are yet to come

 

AGENT                                                        Between City and Verna - Diesel or petrol

 

VISITOR                                                      Diesel

 

AGENT                                                        Would go with City Petrol in terms of Driving and Verna in looks.
