EP 82 would be a good option in terms of maintenance and fuel consumption. Or else a K11, not so good with fuel.

If you want a Hot hatch I would suggest an EP 82 Starlet GT. But it's slightly above u r budget. But if you want a normal hatchback go for a Nissan March K11 or Starlet EP 82 if you don't mind a two door car go for a Corolla 2.

Being a Honda fan I'd say EG8. If unabused and not modded badly, it's good fun!

Your nickname and your choices suggest that u might have an affinity towards euros. How about a peugeot 206? U might be able to get a pre-english number manual one for your budget.

Contrary to the popular belief its not difficult or too expensive to maintain any of those cars, as long as u dont land with a lemon. For parts, u always have ebay if nothing else works out. So stop listening to car mudalalis and car baiyas and go with your heart :-)

Ford festiva is made by kia. Newer kias are pretty good but older ones are not so. Amongsr euros, older fiat puntos need very little maintenance. Places like milano motors and nelum motors sell spares for peanuts. Why not consider one of those?

If i was in your position i would avoid all the cars in your list.

i like punto MK2 (not the facelift).. as I've heard,it costs too much to maintain the model than other vehicles in my list..im looking for very economical vehicle..for daily use..which is good for my pocket...any ideas??

You might want to look at a c******o Reva, or maybe some of those Chinese cars with 3 wheels that they keep advertising on the Sunday Papers.

Toyota Starlet EP82 (petrol and deisel)--

nissan march K11

Thumbs down for Starlet Diesel (it's bad, believe me) and March (Not too friendly on the wallet)

Starlet Petrol is a very good car, and consider the EG8 too.

If you are too concerend about repair cost, it should be the Maruti. (Front sealed beam is only 750 bucks :speechless-smiley-004: )

I would pick the EP82 from your list, Also consider the Perodua kelisa and Maruti Zen (not the Estilo).
