Jazz Vs Santro. Honda Crying. Hyundai Laughing.

Santro the old warhorse hasn't lost its appeal, no wonder Indian car buyers can compare it with much more expensive and contemporary car like the Honda Jazz and maybe still see a value in it. We at ecardlr though are nto quite thrilled with such a proposition.

Honda Jazz Or Santro Xing, Which One?

Jazz Vs Santro. Honda Crying. Hyundai Laughing.

In all honesty, May we request you to please study the Indian car market some more. We are trying to compare two completely incomparable cars (Please don’t do this).

However now that you are looking at both cars, here’s what we feel about them

In case of Santro Xing you today have EON as a worthy option. Eon is more stylish and being te new car on the new car on the block makes it a good buy. Santro Xing on the other hand like the M800 has served the Indian car buyers and their respective manufacturer quite ably over time. Both models are so strong that even after being in the market for some time, they are loved as much by Indian car buyers even today but they are much too beyond their prime..

Jazz got a new lease of life post the price correction by Honda. Jazz’s strength is its huge space and Honda marquee. We however feel that the power plant running the Jazz is kind of underpowered, which along with Honda’s high frequency service schedule and comparatively low mileage makes the Jazz an unworthy competitor for your wallet.

Our suggestion - Check out the i10 or even EON now as they both offer great value.


Santro, December 5 2016.

VISITOR                                                      hi          


AGENT                                                        Morning             


VISITOR                                                      i have a Santro and i have some problem with it             


VISITOR                                                      the rim bending problem          


VISITOR                                                      y my rim is bend even after a repair     


AGENT                                                        Surprised          


AGENT                                                        how old is your car        


VISITOR                                                      5 year old car   


VISITOR                                                      mere speed 80 to 100 kmph pe tyre ghada pe jane se tyre is bend         


AGENT                                                        Normally, low or high tyre pressure also lead to bending if your car goes over a pot hole at speed                                                                     


AGENT                                                        normally avoid doing so, as much as possible  


AGENT                                                        It does not matter if your car is mere 5 year old,  going at speed on pot holes can damage the rim                                                                     


VISITOR                                                      tyre pressure is ok i always check in a weak      


VISITOR                                                      ok  so know i change the rim    


VISITOR                                                      plz tell me rim is better or alloys            


AGENT                                                        Alloys any day, but please don't speed over potholes  


VISITOR                                                      brands of alloys u recommend


VISITOR                                                      yes i understand but some potholes r never miss on highway when speed around 100


VISITOR                                                      some popular brand or company alloys               


AGENT                                                        Unfortunately I have no recommendations       


VISITOR                                                      why ?  


VISITOR                                                      u have any idea or not ?             


AGENT                                                        Not into accessories, plus low knowledge         


VISITOR                                                      ok no problem can u help me to buy a perfect tyre for my car  


AGENT                                                        I believe more than brand names how you use your tyres is more important, for example, my tyres last upwards of 60 K, mainly because of wheel balancing and tyre rotation in every 5000 Km               


VISITOR                                                      Bridgestone , Michelin , good tyre, continental               


AGENT                                                        Over last 6 cars that I have owned I have changed OEM tyres only twice in total              


AGENT                                                        Its now that my City is Older than 7 years I am being forced to changes its tyres due to ageing problem                                                   


AGENT                                                        my personal preference would be Michelin  or Bridgestone, because Michelin is being by F1 cars these days earlier it used to be Bridgestone if my memory serves me right             


VISITOR                                                      my apollo is 6 year older thats y i want to change           


VISITOR                                                      can i upgrade the rim size from 13 to 14 inch    


AGENT                                                        I think the Santro's Wheel Arch should be able to accommodate, the R14 rim, but then that will definitely impact your fuel eff and maybe even stability at speed, my advice avoid            


VISITOR                                                      ok good by thanks for your advice
