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?
