#Zack Many thanks for these useful data. However, uniformity in price specifics would have been nice. Sticking to one system rather than mixing up lakhs and millions, and putting the commas between the numericals accordingly would have been more convenient for the reader. Eg: VW Golf- 20,00,000 plus (20 lakh or 2 million plus), VW Polo diesel- 8,50,000 (8.5 lakh) after taxes. Toyota Corolla is about 14,00,000 (14 lakh), Suzuki Swift- 7,50,000 (7.5 lakh) and BMW 320d - Rs 35, 00,000 (35 lakh, ie. 3.5 million).

I hope the figures are right, but this is just to give you the idea. Thought it was worth a mention.Thanks again!
