Kindly advise....
Planning to buy my first hatchback car & my budget is below 4lacs Ex-showroom price of the car. My choices are Datsun-Go, Maruti wagano R LXI, Hyundai Eon 1.0 kappa magna+ & Hyundai santro GLS. My needs are city & highway uses occupying comfortably for 5 adults.
Questions are as follows
1) Is Datsun Go reliable from all aspects (Engine, Body, Suspension) for long term use ?
2) Is Maruti wagon R good for highway ?
3) Is Hyundai cars reliable ? coz one of my friend works as a technician in Hyundai who personally advised me not to have a choice of Hyundai cars as they r not reliable for long term use & maintenance is also high compared to other cars.. So, kindly guide me what should I do n which one should I pick from the above listed cars or any other make which fits my budget..

I'm from a middle class background so even if its below 4lacs & not feature rich at least I expect the car to run trouble free with periodic service & good maintenance...So, please experts & Users I'm waiting for your opinions..

Thanks all for your great effort for your genuine answers

You have omitted so many other choice of cars Like Alto and k 10 and Celerio and Indica V2 and also the Foed Figo.Estilo Beat Eeco Spark and the Lovely Brio from Honda. I am sure for each of the choices one friend or the other will not like. Also for a little more budget many more favourites like Swift etc are there so best you take your call you are going to Drive it and be seen it you have consulted many and got feed back now just think what is your Dream machine look like. And will you have to pay a lot to keep the Dream going. And tell your Mechanic friend that if one is working in a Hospital they will fell that everybody is not well.

If you are staying in metro than You can go with Datsun-Go. Otherwise you can go with Maruthi wagon R

Hi Saravana. Considering your needs, Maruti Wagon R should keep you happy. Datsun Go is reliable too and has slightly better space than Wagon R for third passenger in the back. But yes Maruti's maintenance cost is unbeaten.
