Base variant comparison between Sail, Dzire and Accent, does not leave much scope of doing an in-depth analysis. Most of them are just meant for those planning to buy a 3 box car over a hatchback, because there is a need for a boot.
Hi, I am confused between 3 cars CHEVROLET SAIL (BASE PETROL), SWIFT DEZIRE LXI and HYUNDAI ACCENT EXECUTIVE (PETROL). I have budget of 5.50 - 6 lac. Usage of car is very low, not more that 500 km per month. Please guide !!
Why would we buy these cars?
Dzire - A Maruti Suzuki car with low expected maintenance cost, good service reach and hopefully a good resale value if Indian car buyers fall in love with petrol cars by the time you are ready to upgrade or change
Sail - What an entry price. Plus Chevrolet cars are known for their stability and ride quality. The front looks like the Cruze. Car looks big for its size. Ideal for those looking for a new car, in the real sense of the word new
Accent - The old horse. Its long and still looks luxurious. Very cushioned ride.
Why would we not buy these cars?
Dzire - Old, too many of them on the road, too boring to look at, internal fit finish a question mark. Due to its high design, it does not feel stable at speeds
Sail - From GM, service reach still question mark. It's just being launched. Accent - The old horse. Its long and still looks luxurious. Very cushioned ride.
Accent - Really old design, even Hyundai has abandoned it in favour of their new Fluidic design. Low slung car. Even Hyundai does not know when they will pull the plug.
Ideally buying a base model of a sedan is really a huge compromise on features, Most of them and even these cars offer AC, Power Steering, Front Power Windows in the name of feature list. Effectively speaking they are all just boxes on wheels with a device to manoeuvre them. Most of them also are good for 4. For the kind of money you are planning to use to buy them you can get decent premium hatch quite loaded too. You decide
