mattwnz:Dingbatt: Saw my first Tivoli out in the wild only yesterday. Can't say I was particularly inspired. In fact the part of the TV advert in which one of the brainstorming team says "it has four wheels" is probably the most apt descriptor.
Already you appear to be suffering the inevitable bracket creep, where wanting to spend mid 20s becomes low 30s. Many car sales businesses have now zeroed their sales targets for the new year. So unless you are looking to buy a MY2015 new vehicle there may not be much interest in bargaining from their perspective.
Isn't this company part owned by an Indian car company? So I wonder if they are part built in India. Personally I would rather buy a second hand premium brand for the same price, especially if keeping it for many years. Toyota rav4 or something like that will likely last for many years. My parents have a 10 year old one, the previous generation and it is as good as new and never had any problems, and built in Japan.
Many leading brands are constructed in India also Thailand, Belgium, China....... makes no difference they are built to the same standard. India for example makes some very good heavy vehicles, Trains etc and gas a very good auto industry in general.
