If you are getting both for the same price then go for Getz.

thanks neo!

few clarifications---

1- as getz been discontinued prefering Getz over Santro(still in prodcution) a sensible desicion i.e. services, spare-parts availability, road side assistance, repairs @ local mecanics, maintainence cost etc.

2- as i would be using the same for a year or less and than upgrade to a new car, will getz get me decent resale value?????

plzzzz advice.

Frankly speaking stay away from car used under CNG and even more than 30k. It fatches very low resale value. According to my knowledge the price quoted for both the cars are bit on higer side. Considering the age, model and no of users in case of santro. Please re-check whether it is SAntro Xing or Zip drive. Because santro has stopped using word Zip drive form the moment they launched Xing in the maket. It has version names like XP, XO for xing. So if it is zip-drive, than it is too old and should be avoided.

Increase your budget and try to get lower run car if possible. Your total ownership cost will be much lower in this case. In such an aged car, if something goes wrong, you will end up paying high repairing cost. Depreciation will be much higher in case of older cars.

Best option will be 2006-07 santro run around 30k and available at 2.30-2.50, if you get. Please use carwale used car valuation and used car section.

All the best.
