    Datsun Go vs i10 Grand Magna petrol

    HI, Friends

    My close relative went with booking a Datsun GO in Madurai, and after recent news released by NCAP, he is wondering what to do? His requirement is to have low budget petrol car for regular city drive. He was using a Maruti 800 for last 10 years and driven this for close to 1.25 L kms. He have good medium speed driving style. He need a car only for city drive, and not for highway drives. He is also interested in i10 grand magna petrol car. As per his verification with respective dealers here is the price.

    Datsun go is 4.4L on road and grand i10 magna 1.2 petrol is 5.54L on road. I need to your advise on buying wither datsun go or grand i10 magna 1.2.

    Thanks
    Maharajan

    if it is only between these two, I would advice to go for Grand i10.

    You may also look out for chevy Beat or spark Even Punto 1.2 active is also coming in this budget

    Dear Maharajan

    ask your relative to check with FASS, there are few pre facelift Punto's available with hefty discount. I meant those. new evo 1.2 Active will be around 4.6 ex showroom.

    Hi, Dhans

    Discussed with FORZA ITALIA, madurai and confirmed that there is no pre facelift version of Punto available in stock, we need to look for only Evo models. 1.2 petrol is not in stock. Demo and TD are done with 1.3 MJD - emotion variant.

    Re: Datsun Go vs i10 Grand Magna petrol

    It would be better if they do test drive in 1.2 petrol. Less features and little under powered car than 1.3 mjd emotion.

    Please check with chennai dealers especially ramkay as they had many pre facelifted cars in their stock. This was a month back and i am not sure now.

    I would suggest to go for 1.2dynamic over 1.2 petrol and it costs just 20k more unlike the diesel which a whole 1l more due to ABS not available in petrol. 1.2Active will be around 5.2l and 1.2 dynamic around 5.4 or max5.5

    Re: Datsun Go vs i10 Grand Magna petrol

    Hi, Dhans and Bharath

    Thanks for your advise. I have checked with Ramkay Sales Manager and confirmed that there is only one pre facelifted emotion 1.2 petrol is available. So we leave the option of pre facelifted versions.

    Coming to Evo, Madurai dealer could arrange a 1.2 petrol only during next month. I have got the quote for Evo 1.2 petrol active, it is close to 5.53L including 7K for extendted warranty.

    Coming to Grandi10 magna 1.2, my relative got the quote of 5.4L including 15K discount.

    When I have explained that there will be milage difference between Evo 1.2 and grandi10 1.2 due to difference in kerb weight, he is inclined towards grandi10.

    Its better to go with grand i10 since its used in madurai and also mainly as a city car.
