I always thought that Tata had made a marketing mistake by comparing the Indica Xeta with a Maruti Alto. The comparison just isn't compatible. I felt comparing the Xeta, Wagon R and Zen Estillo would be more appropriate. Actually the Hyundai Santro should also join the race, but I had a bad experience at the Hyundai dealer, and decided against the Santro, so shouldn't compare on that for the time being. For those thinking of buying a 2nd hand car, you just might be tempted to buy a new car with all the options around.

If there is question about highway performance or long journey based on mileage and comfort alto is better than indica or wagon r.alto is very funny to drive within the speed limit of 60 km/h to 100 km/h.
