    Premio 2010 or Mazda 3 2014

    Premio has a cvt whilst Mazda 3 has a conventional auto box. So yes premio will slightly be economical on fuel. Premio has soft suspension whilst Mazda has slightly rigid suspension which helps in better handling. Having said that 3 is no means uncomfortable. May I know what your current vehicle is ? Because the feel is relative. Reliability wise, both cars will score the same. Mazda 3s are brandnew imports by local agents so if you can find a car post 2014 that will have couple of years agent warrantie left as well. Highly unlikely you will get a specimen with tampered mileages. On the other hand Premios are gray imports. We never know what they went through. You will not be able to make profits out of using a Mazda after 5 years. But the same point could be used to negotiate for a lower price when you are buying. You will miss some bells and whistles from the Mazda Axela which is the JDM, however you will get all you need in SL context. It will help you if you can test drive both cars. p.s. I am biased towards Mazda anyways

    Any experience with colonial motors

    Being a very recent Mazda owner I just had couple of interactions with colonial which was good in terms of customer service. But price point of view being the agent,It was very expensive as expected from any agent. I was able to do the same job with a genuine part at Mazna. I would also suggest you to check with Mazna as well. I came to know about them from Autolanka as well, there were previous threads in the forum about both colonial and mazna, where there have been both positive and negative experiences. Search the forum.

    Complex Cash flow issue hybrid vs Vitz

    Hi, no offence but dont think selling your car and re financing to get another car of higher price will help your situation. If your sole purpose of selling the 121 is to get out of the crisis, what I believe is the best to buy something of lower price at least temporarily. In that way you get out of the crisis. And being used both ICE and Hybrids I can tell you, you will not get the financial benefits of fuel unless you keep it a very long time. I mean 'very' long. Because you will face higher insurance cost with the newer car and 'any' car can breakdown and issues can be there.

    5.5 million car options?

    I Can recommend Mazda 3/Axela 2014-2015 if you are not bothered about second hand market value. Good ground clearance, Good handling, Decent Economy.

    Nissan Bluebird Sylphy G11 ? Ample space, comfortable ride, will give decent typical 1.5 ICE economy. Bit boring to drive though. There is a 1.8 version as well. Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  9. Haven't used or owned one, but what about Honda Accord like 2010-2012 ? Falls to the same category of Luxo barges isn't it. May be some one who has experience with them can shed some light. Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  10. Thanks RWD. [emoji4] Yes, it was a difficult decision. Risk is there with the hybrid battery, and value depreciation. But did not worry too much, as I fell in love with everything else. [emoji4] Sent from my [device_name] using http://AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  11. Thanks Irage Previous owner has put up a matt black sticker on the roof and the side mirrors. Don't think they blend well with the rest of the car though, thinking of removing ..
  12. Thanks. Yeah, ground clearance is not bad. Mazda has couple of cms more than the civic. Will post some more pics soon.
  13. Thanks a lot everyone for the valuable opinions on helping me out to decide. Was struggling to decide between the new civic hatch and Mazda 3. Finally Mazda won over Honda, however its not a 3. But an Axela 2014. Given the prices these days for 3s, even though I had to spend more for the Axela. Feel its worth it given the options and the fuel figures since I am doing close to 80kms a day. Considered 6 as well, but given the larger size and asking price, and fuel figures gave up the idea. Again thank you everyone for your help, has been following mazda threads for long time old threads on Mazdas from @Supra_Natural, @iRage, @sath[email protected], @Nirosha indeed made me a mazda fan and still learning from your informative posts. Keep up the good work guys.
