      New, used or continue with existing car

      Hello,

      Itís time to replace my ageing Safari with a new car. Now, due to the stupid ban on over 2000 cc engines is Delhi, I cannot buy new Strome, Dicor, or Aria.

      My budget is around 11-12 Lacs (On road), and Iím also considering buying a used car (because of the ban). Now, Friend of mine is selling his 2014 (July) Aria Pride (150bhp, 4X4, ESP, 6 airbags) with 43,000 Kms on odo, with warranty valid till 2019 in my budget.

      As, Iíve never bought a used car, so, Iím not confident going for the above car. (Heart saying yes, brain is confused). I like the S-Cross, but it does not have an option of AWD or 4X4.

      Should I go for used Aria, or buy a new one, or wait for Tata to come with a 2000 cc engine. (knowing Tata, this might happen only after 2025), or continue with my old workhorse (existing safari)?

      Anyways, My requirements are Ė


      • Car should be able to take abuse of harsh weather, rough terrains and high altitude.
      • Good power
      • Easy on maintenance and repair
      • Can carry 4+ people with luggage


      Any recommendation or suggestion guys?

      Well the Ban is going to be removed in few weeks as almost all manufacturers are suffering huge losses due to it and it's not helping pollution either

      In present scenario, Have a look at following ones -

      1)Mahindra Xuv500
      2)Honda Brv
      3)Maruti Scross
      4)Honda City
      5)Maruti Brezza
      6)Renault duster
      7) Hyundai Creta if in budget
      8)Ford Ecosport
      9)Maruti Ciaz
      10)Toyota Etios


      Toyota Etios should be I guess top contenders due to realibity offered in all terrain, enough power and ample space. Repairs very easy. Maintaince very less

      Used aria I won't buy because of niggles faced by owners repeatedly.

      Don't think so, Sales of cars over 2000 cc in NCR is very small compared to total sales. Mahindra and other manufacturers have already moved to below 2000 cc engine. It's just tata which is sleeping as usual.

      Sir
      What about Audi,Bmw,mercerdes,jaguar,volvo ,toyota etc
      they have not moved to below 2000 C

      Some latest updates on the issue -
      If we don’t get a breakthrough on Monday, our vehicles despite being compliant of all regulations in India would continue to be banned. That’s the worst advertisement of India.
      SOURCE

      The Supreme Court today hinted that it may consider relaxing its order banning registration of new diesel luxury cars and SUVs with an engine capacity of over 2000 cc in Delhi and National Capital Region.

      “Primarily, we are of the view that diesel vehicles cause more pollution than other vehicles. We may be right, we may be wrong. We are open to modifying it,” a bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur said.

      used Fortuner, used storme. With your kind of travel, a 4x4 or an AWD is a basic requirement. Comfort and speed for those quick runs to Narkanda or chitkul or jalori or spiti means a duster AWD, or a used vitara might also make the cut.

      Used Fortuner are slightly expensive and not easy to maintain.

      Vitra : As this car will also by my daily drive to work ( 80 KMs daily), So, Petrol vitra will be very expensive to run.

      Duster : Will definitely try. thanks

      go with Duster AWD , if you cannot wait for Hexa. I think its worth waiting 6 months to see what happens and if the ban is lifted.

      I would retain the Safari. Absolutely no reason to sell a used car to buy a lower rung used car. Once you are used to an SUV, its difficult to transition back into a car. There are just not enough benefits. The only reason I'd sell the Safari is if its got major issues and is spending more time in the garage than in your hand.. and repairing it is not economical.
