      The Vento put a smile across my face. It feels just so special. And that amazing thud when you close the door. Again those A.S.S. stories prevented me :/
      1. The Vento and the Rapid have the same 4 doors and close with the same thud.

      2. You know what?, I'm going to "THANK" your post and I'm going to disappear from this thread. I don't want to continue discussing in this thread.

      Sedans are so overrated. A Fiat punto would be the best buy in this budget.

      For those who didn't get it, below is a dialogue from his movie Rush:

      Niki Lauda: Your fan belt is loose.
      Marlene Lauda: My what?
      Niki Lauda: And when you brake your foot goes all the way down, which means there's air in the system.
      Marlene Lauda: Anything else?
      Niki Lauda: No... Apart from the rear brakes are worn out, the front right tire's a bit soft, which explains why you're weaving so much.
      Marlene Lauda: How can you tell?
      Niki Lauda: My ass.
      Marlene Lauda: Sorry?
      Niki Lauda: God gave me an okay mind, but a really good ass, which can feel everything in a car.

      I honestly don't think sales figures do anything to indicate superiority of any car. Lot of people buy cars on perception instead of true performance of the vehicle. Alto and Dezire/Swift are always among top 5 most selling cars in India - I can assure you that there is nothing ground breaking in those cars.

      +1 Can't agree more to this ! anand_h is trying hard to get OP to buy a Honda City Honda engines are good. No doubt about that. But it doesn't mean Honda cars are a gift from the almighty. We're going OT here.

      I suggest let OP take a decision based on his needs & lets stay away from putting yours is best or mine is best. Peace

      I agree that they may not be ground breaking. In fact no regular car has ever been ground breaking. At least I can't recollect of any.

      However what makes each of these cars sell more than their rivals are a combined set of factors.

      And the sales figures do indicate superiority in terms of its direct rivals to a certain extent.
