Fuel economy, wide service network, more value for money… Alto. More modern looks, Eon.
Alto is the largest selling car, known for its consistent mileage, reliability and good resale value. Eon is stylish, has a slightly more powerful engine, good mileage, has good quality interiors, nice fit & finish and has more interior space than Alto. But, the engine sounds harsh when revved hard and its handling is also not well. So, if you are…[Read more]
alto for reliability, eon for gennext looks
Apart from the above mentioned, go for the Alto only if space is not a priority else Eon.

Alto k10 or alto 800 both are awsum then eon
Maruti is trusted brand ,,,,with low mainatainces

Even if Skoda was robbing customers in terms of price of their cars, they were still giving feature loaded cars. Without the features what’s left, after sales service? We all know how good that is. I think this repositioning is good only if Skoda manages to find a way to retain the features while reducing the price.
congrats, u have chosen one of the best cars in the world
cause there are better cars in that segment…..dat don’t chug as much fuel nor cost as much in parts…
lancer is not upgraded, its just like japanese ambassedor
Thanks very much for all your comments. Yes, I found a match with Ambassedor , I think HM sales Lancer in India.
Punto first i was shocked to c Brio as I though where’s my Punto?? Then I scrolled down in Premium Hatchs to c my super hatch… Nice article… I must say good ride quality is very important in a car for a comfortable ride
i dno how they can qualify a car like MANZA for ride quality.!!! it has a very bouncy ride for speeds above 80..
Punto, Linea and the Fluence, leaders in ride quality in a country known for bad roads, and yet the least selling in their respective segments. The irony of it!
But Experts what about I20? Is punto better than i20?
Yes, in terms of purely ride quality, the Punto is better than the i20. Let’s put it this way, the Punto is the best hatchback in terms of ride quality today in India. The way it flattens bad patches with the least drama has to be experienced to be believed.
punto d best
Superb article. Nice to see good cars @ good position.
i20 d best
HUNDAI NEEDS FEW MORE YEARS TO IMPROVE RIDE QUALITY OF THEIER ENGINE…THEY ARE NEVER ON TECHNOLOGY…JUST LOOKS AND FEATURES HELPING THEM TO SELL TH CARS…I M ALSO SURPRIZED TO SEE NUMBERS OF CARS ARE IN MARKET(I20) PITTY IN BUYERS…THEY DONT KNOW TECHNOLOGY….AND THAT WHY THEY BUY…:)
In my humble and honest opinion, that is one vehicle from the Nissan Renault alliance which sits on a very capable Nissan platform ensuring exceptional ride & handling, a good looking Renault design which is different from SUV’s that are seen everyday and an engine which is a good balance of performance and fuel efficiency. Also if I am correct it…[Read more]
Congrats. When did they promised to deliver??
Congratulations on the booking. Which color?
Honda city stands out as best.. Even Hyundai verna is cool but sucks when it comes to handling..
among petrol city is best,among diesel new fiesta is very good
In a nutshell, the Vento has a premium image, City is the safest bet & overall the best petrol sedan, Fiesta has a class leading auto transmission & best ride & handling, Verna is for the person who wants a laundry list of features & the softest suspension setup or a diesel automatic sedan. So what are your priorities? Monthly usage, comfort,…[Read more]
My requirements are : A diesel car, good for seating maximum of 5 people, good ride and handling quality, average monthly usage of about a 120 kms. I personally like the New fiesta…..but is it a good choice?
Thank you for your reply- Davinder sir, Amit sir, and Madan sir.
Your monthly run is just 120 km n you are wanting a diesel car!!!! Its just of bucks.. better choose petrol car.. For your requriments I suggest you the Honda city.. Its best in the class..
I bet Passat would be more comfortable since it is a sedan.
Don’t underestimate the Koleos. It is comfortable and retains its stability and ride-quality over bad roads much better than the Passat. It might be slower, but for Indian roads, the Koleos makes much more sense, unless you have to have a sedan and a VW.
@ Siddhartha no no I absolutely agree with you; the Koleos has been in the headlines for being the most comfortable SUV out there but I have a feeling that when compared to a premium luxury sedan like the Passat, it probably comes up a little short.
My only point was that a sedan like the Passat will always be faster and more comfortable than a heavy SUV with similar power. But once the perfect smooth highways end, the Koleos will retain good speed over bad roads and still keep you in relative comfort. Why do you think SUVs sell like hot cakes in India?
Yes, yes there is no denying that fact. For bad roads an SUV is the only answer.
As far as pure ride quality goes, the Koleos is light years ahead of the rest. We were floored by its perfect suspension setup when we tested it. But then, you pay through your nose for that. Duster is also very very good in this respect but both these cars are not so spacious. In that sense, XUV and Fortuner offer much more space for 5 and the…[Read more]
In terms of ride comfort, the Koleos and the Duster are excellent. Fortuner and XUV500 are pretty average. But if you want interior space and comfort, then the Fortuner is the best mix of the lot, followed by the XUV500.
Duster is no where comparable to the rest of the three.
happy to receive the best from u all, right now im using scorpio hawk, i have comfortably oevrcome for about 65000km in 16months, now im moving a head wid more comfortable car than scorpio, so my choice was fortuner,but im confused wid xuv500 as its same wid scorpio hope so..
XUV is better than the Scorpio in terms of ride and comfort and the Fortuner is better still. But the Duster and the Koleos are in a different league all together.
thanks for ur kind replies, duster exterior is gud but interior..? i feel both interior n exterior’s better in xuv n fortuner, i feel the price only makes differnce for xuv n fortuner, other specification for both same i think so? i already used the mahindra product im satisfied, i need a different ride so i can go for toyato fortuner
Duster’s cabin is not that great. Plastics are average and the car does not feel expensive inside. XUV is all about show off, but fantastic value nonetheless. Fortuner is a more complete vehicle, thoroughly engineered inside out. Ideal upgrade for a Scorpio user. Buy the automatic and give your left arm and leg a well deserved vacation.
@shreyan thankz for ur suggestion, now i go wid fortuner , i feel better than b4
Just flashed my mind, if comfort is what you are looking for, do take a test drive of the Skoda Yeti as well. It is almost as good as the Koleos in that department, much better than the Fortuner. Plus it is excellent to drive, feels like a true luxury car and sips much less diesel.And all the discounts and offers mean it the 4×4 Elegance will cost…[Read more]
jus noticed mahindra Quanto car.. is it gud for indian roads n the price is gud to compare wid the the other small car..can any1 sugges on Quanto
Quanto is a city vehicle not for the highway. good efficiency but has same flaws (suspension) as the xylo. very bad interiors. Better to get an XUV500 than Quanto
QUANTO IS VERY BAD ON THE ROAD AT SPEEDS ,IT HAS A ROLLOVER DUE TO ITS HEIGHT.
XUV WILL BE BETTER IN LUXURY, COMFORT , PERFORMANCE, AND CAN GO SOFFROAD IF YOU CHOOSE AWD AND IT IS A VALUE FOR MONEY SUV,
duster is quite good in terms of comfort,plastic quality lets u down, but than it comes with very competitive price, fortuner is allrounder, xuv is good
For anyone, the story starts with budget and ends at space. Fortuner is top in the chart but when MNM introduced XUV500, things started to change and made it affordable for everyone. Koleos might be the most comfortable here but lacks the feel. Duster is somehow the best in the country right now and is in the reach of a common man. In my opinion,…[Read more]
i think if u want best comfort then you should go with fortuner
