I don't know if you've been searching this site,but there's a lot of info that people are giving to help you on what to look for.There's one guy wanting to buy one and he's thinking of purchasing the car for 2900 which is a good buy for a 2001 model.

hope this helps

One of the problems in talking internationally about new & especially used car prices are the HUGE differences between countries.

As we are talking Accents.........the example mentioned above (a 2001 car going for U.S.$ 2,900) ........in the United Kingdom, a car of that description would retail for £2500 (that`s almost U.S.$5000!).
In case you think that`s exhorbitant, the on-the-road list price of a brand new , top-of-the-range 1.6 Accent CDX is £10,995........or exactly U.S.$21,220 !!.

Another difficulty is that some cars are not sold in all countries........for example, I doubt if anyone in the U.K., let alone the U.S.A., has ever heard of a Maruthi 800.

By the way & a little off-topic, petrol (gasoline) in the U.K. is priced at almost U.S.$ 8.00 per (Imperial) gallon..........but many readers will not comprehend just how much that is, as the concept of a gallon is alien to them. Even Americans & British people cannot discuss miles-per-gallon figures meaningfully.........because the U.S. gallon is less in quantity than the Imperial gallon!.
Australians now measure engine power in kilowatts (a measure of electricity in Britain & America!)........luckily our b.h.p. & the European P.S. (whatever that stands for!) are almost the same.

What I`m trying to say here, is that only people from the same country can really say whether a price is good or not & discuss mileages achieved per unit of fuel consumed etc. etc..

I hope somebody found that interesting!. LOL.

Sorry, welcome to the Forums Silvius!.
Nick. ;)

Hi VALKYRIE ,

You are fully rigth that prices on a particular market should be compared.

FYI - Yes HP and PS are the same, because PS is the German punctuation PferdeStark of HorsePower. In Central Europe we use both of the parameters.
1kW equals about 1.35 HP, while
74kW = 100 HP

Best regards, Attila
