An opulent automotive

Parv Kapoor, Varanasi: I’m planning to purchase a automotive inside ₹40 lakh however am confused between the Kia Carnival and the Ford Endeavour.

Both are very totally different vehicles and the one factor they’ve in widespread is a number of area, which, we assume, is the explanation you’re deciding between these two. If you’re primarily driving within the metropolis, then the Carnival is a greater guess. It’s plusher, has extra options and is extra refined. Also, the seats within the Carnival, particularly the ‘captain seats’, are very comfy. The Endeavour just isn’t as manoeuvrable because the Carnival, and never as straightforward to get out and in of. So, as an on a regular basis automotive, this massive SUV just isn’t as sensible because the Kia MPV. However, in case you are driving on unhealthy roads, travelling out of city, particularly to distant areas, the hardy Endeavour is what we’d decide.

In the reckoning

Abhed Sethi, New Delhi: We personal a 2013 Mahindra XUV500 and are planning to interchange it by the top of this 12 months with the new-generation Skoda Octavia. However, because it’s been delayed, I need to know whether it is definitely worth the wait or if the Skoda Superb is a better option. We additionally just like the Skoda Karoq.

It is extra spacious, has a stronger engine and belongs to the next phase. The Karoq can also be a high-quality automotive however the 1.5 engine isn’t as robust, and cabin area is cramped, in comparison with the Superb.
