      UPDATE-
      Im also gonna look out for any good used alternatives- Creta,Compass , S Cross 1.6

      Any advice for cars to look out for?

      Restricting myself to only CUVs

      #Mods can you kindly change title to - "Ecosport or any used alternatives"

      Having lived with an Ecosport for almost 2+ years now, I am slowly regretting the decision to buy one. If it wasn't for the fact that it still works as a demo car for my Audio business and is probably best suited for it, the rest of the car is just okay!

      Few things that really annoy me:

      1. Cheap interior plastics.
      2. Stupidly stiff suspension.
      3. Underpowered Engine.

      If you're okay with a used car, try to get a S-Cross 1.6, that thing is a hoot to drive.

      Or maybe a Compass. The Creta is not so much FTD to be honest.

      Compass - a big no for now , don't seem to have good service available, that's what I got to know here in Kerala
      Creta - not an enthusiast car, good for city and casual drives, nothing exciting
      S Cross 1.6 - That's a yes for me, should be fun to drive.

      megazoid is right, for outright fun, it's a brilliant vehicle. Specially if you get the AWD. It can literally take you any place, brilliant suspension and chassis combo.

      Downsides:
      1. Reall poor quality interiors.
      2. Underpowered Engine.

      Aaha! The "not so good service" myth continues? I'd beg to differ on this. I have had very good experiences in both Coimbatore and Salem. Not sure on KL, but definitely it is not a deal breaker!
      kkn13 you can check my ownership log if you are considering the compass! Here is the link

      Bland interiors, seats are better suited for people on the heavier side than tall
      Plus a bit too big for my taste
      Else that engine is one of the best in terms of reliability

      I dont require AWD , engine isnt as refined as the Creta or Ecosport from what Ive noticed

      Ive had the same K2K engine in my Logan years ago

      Plus Renault-Nissan India doesnt inspire confidence off late

      It has fairly linear turbo spooling
      I have no qualms with the engine itself but the car itself didnt inspire much

      Hmm Ill try for a used Compass but only if its within budget
      Aim is to get a car as cheap as possible since I have another car to take car of space, road presence etc
      Compass isnt really a "beater CUV/SUV", Im looking for a beater kind of a car thats fun to drive etc
      Compass has insane road presence somewhat like Audi and the likes

      Sure

      Im more keen on a used S Cross 1.6 at the moment
      Perfect sleeper car

      Ecosport AT is definitely on my "safe" list for now even without TD
