Re: Indian Autos Thread

^^ Honda is building an MPV on the Brio platform: http://paultan.org/2013/02/16/honda-brio-mpv-to-be-launched-at-this-years-iims/ It'll probably be similar to Ertiga and not a full blown MPV like Innova. FIAT/Chrysler might also bring Town and Country. I'm surprised MPVs (other than Innova) haven't ...

Re: Indian Autos Thread

While driving an SUV isn't exactly comfortable in cities, i don't see Innova being easy to drive either. Innova is almost as big as the XUV. XUV is just a little taller that's all. Ertiga on the other hand is much smaller and i'm told it drives like a sedan. If it's just 3 passengers and a dog, Erti...

Re: Indian Autos Thread

I'd have said XUV if not for #5. My BIL owns one and it's very good. Better value for money than the dated (and expensive) Innova. If you're feeling brave, you can give Tata Aria a try. Lot of discounts on it right now. :)

Massa figures are almost always Petrol figures, these are diesel figures. They're ARAI figures, but you should get 24 on highways.
