Mahindra Quanto is loaded wid a new 3 cyl. twin turbo engine which offers gud level f perfrmance alng wid decent mileage.. it is more spacious n handles well in cities as well as on highways… d top end-variant, c8 is eqipped wid all kinds of safety features lyk ABS,Airbags n all…. …[Read more]
I am so confused as there is no such vehicle is comfortable on all rows..with such a great mileage..and ground clearance…
base model of ertiga suits your requirements or you can go for ertiga VDI to get ABS in it
go for ford fiesta classic diesel good mileage around 22-24kmpl sure,swift dzire,fiat linea ,nissan sunny(best for 5 passengers with driver)
Cars from Fiat, Volkswagen and Skoda are known for their superior build quality. Punto / Linea, Fabia / Rapid, Polo / Vento – all these cars come with superior build quality and perfect combination or ride + handling for highway driving needs. The only down side is – their after sales support is not as good as – for example, Maruti or Hyundai.…[Read more]
I M fully agree with Dave Jose….my opinion (1) Fiat Punto / Linea, (2) Volkswagen Polo / Vento, (3) Skoda Fabia / Rapid….
Your top choices have to the the Fiat cars, Punto or Linea. Punto offers the highest GC at 185mm and the suspension is a case study for its perfect setup. Linea is a bit lower, but very good nonetheless. The other capable option is the Maruti SX4. You get Scorpio beating GC, with the assurance of Maruti’s support and low maintenance costs.…[Read more]
Ok all your criteria matches the SX4-it has high GC of 190mm that can handle some rough terrains,Good space,Handling,Best ASS,The built quality is good.The Second option would be the 2012 Linea which offers 185 mm GC and is Best solid built like a tank car,but the rear seat headroom is uncomfortable for tall passengers because of the sliding coupe…[Read more]
Try the New Fiesta. Suits your requirements but only draw back would be the service and if your are OK with the service provider near your place then just go with this car. Quietest cabin in the segment which would be less straining on long journeys, no body roll , superb handling at high speeds and even tough it’s GC is less comparatively, it…[Read more]
I would recommend the Punto Emotion or Linea Dynamic (both petrol). Great ground clearance of 185mm, a very solid built considering other cars, feels like a tank even though standard safety kit of airbags and ABS with EBD is available on many other cars, after sales service I have never faced trouble being an owner. Also yesterday there was a Fiat…[Read more]
Thanks a Tonnn.. Guys ! now I have a list to checkout for (thanks to you all). now the next week will be a tryout session and I will get back to you all, once I have two cars to choose between.
I am going to leave SX4 for now and focus on Fiat, Ford and VW…. will catch up next week.
Figo, most value for money!
Go with the Swift. It is the more comfortable car. Being a Maruti, maintenance is never going to be an issue. Has more features too.
Yes, but a fully loaded diesel Swift (ZDi) would cost Rs. 6,76,981.15 (ex-showroom Delhi) while a fully loaded diesel Ford Figo (Titanium) would only cost Rs. 5,94,200.00 (ex-showroom Delhi) and that is a huge price difference for a some missing features.
Its not just the price. Swift’s interiors feel so much plusher. And the seats are much more comfortable. The controls are lighter and the ride quality better. If you find the Swift too expensive, go for the Ritz and save some money on what is otherwise an identical car.
my suggestion is swift bcoz ur equirements are 1. Comfort 2. reliable product 3. Driving pleasure 4. easy to maintain. that means swift is perfect for u…..
On all four fronts, the Swift is better without a doubt but with just a little margin. The price difference between the two is noticeable, which is increased due to the discounts running on the Figo, probably due to a new variant launch or to push sales. The Swift also has an indefinite waiting time. So on paper though the Swift seems like the…[Read more]
The moment you look at their relative price, you start getting some doubts! But if you are not worried about that, then its the Swift.
I’ll say Beat because Figo may offer few things but the difference is still not much. Beat is more reliable and is better looking car. For the highways, Figo is more fun but looking for more city driving Beat is an excellent car with small turning radius and highest fuel efficiency. Interior quality is great but boot space is a problem in Beat.
I’ll suggest Ford Figo; I’m having one and I drove swift too…! ride quality is better in Figo, 2nd gear lag is less in Figo compared to Swift. Good interiors, spacious, Looks like a small, but heavy and will give the feeling of riding an SUV.
Ford Classic very nice car,nice mileage,decent look but spear part is slightly expensive….otherwise very nice car……
Proven platform since a long time in India which is shared with the Figo, availability of spares should also be fine. Spares are cheap, due to heavy localization as well as breaking them into child parts. A work horse engine in the diesel while an enthusiast’s satisfaction in the petrol. I know an owner with a 6 year old car in pristine condition…[Read more]
The Classic is a very good car. If you don’t mind the slightly old-school design, the rest is perfect. Good ride and handling, good mileage, good fit and finish, decent comfort. Pretty much value for money.
@Thank you. Ford Classic TDCi CLXi vs Swift Dezire VDI . Which one would give me performance and joy while driving in city conditions? Also, which one has the best music system?
Dzire makes a better case as a city car purely on the basis of lighter controls. The Classic shares its music system with the Figo and that is one audio unit I really like.
hi manoj 1st u tell me what do u want? suv or sedan
hi manoj..if u want sedan i think Fiat Linea is good look, low maintenance, & good reliability but lack of service center & Resell Value…..Second is New Verna Fluidic good & sporty looks but according to some car owner(new verna) low stability at high speed…..if u want suv then go with MNM XUV 500 nice machine…..
A Safari is not bad either, call me on 9845966400 if interested, i have a 2012 Safari to sell since i am going to frequently travel outside india….
Both cars have had a history of rattles. The Swift with the plastic panels and the i20 with the steering. The new models have seen big improvements with regards to build quality but neither car is anywhere as solid as the Punto or Fabia.
No major complaints about either car.
if u want strongest & better build quality car then only one car is available in indian market that is FIAT PUNTO…..For nice mileage both swift & i20 use low weight plastic , that is reason swift & i20 mileage 22 + km/l (according to car maker company) & FIAT PUNTO mileage is 20.5 km/l (according to car maker company).
I would vote for the Polo! That’s well built!
thickness of the steel used in Swift is better than that of i20… crumple zone in swift is better than i20. middle, front and c pillars on swift are better. if it was me, i would ststick with swift on this subject, plus partsof hyundar are way costly than maruti…..
Hyundai i20 is slightly on the better side but normally both are almost same as both are from Asian manufacturer. i20 has euro N-cap 5 star rating while Swift has 4 star.
i20 better built than swift, maruti cars are low on strength as compared to the compitetion. I20 is better build than swift but polo tops them all. Figo is one another car which is better built as ford cars are always heavy as compared to the other manufacturers.
By business, do you mean you ll use it as your personal business vehicle, as an omnibus attached to a Co or as a route service? Which part of the country do you intend to use it?
@ Davdath for rout service (Passenger Vehicle) in Kerala to Bangalore rout services…..
In that case, looking at the economies of scale and the kind of passengers that you would ferry, I d recommend the B9R multi axle for the following reasons: 1. Proven platform with spares availability. 2. Greater passenger comfort (Mercedes and Isuzu have not been able to beat Volvo yet)3. Many seating configurations available.4. Getting a pre…[Read more]
thanks Davdath thank u so much….
The dash looks really cool but the Gear lever design may not suit manual shift that would most likely be available in India. Or if its going to be Dash mounted, then it should be redesigned like the ones in I10 or Ritz. On the exteriors, the Wagon R is much better looking. Its a perfect balanced design as it tries to appeal as a large car at the…[Read more]
Good! It looks better now!
Poor design changes. Nthn exciting to look at. :/
looks like a big box nothing exciting about it
why the hell they made this car?? Dabbaa!! bpxy vehicle!
Dabba,BOX CAR NOT GOOD LOOKIN….
dont bring in india please!
The interiors r better than the exteriors
we all know that this car is not going make a debut here, as maruti are not going to replace existing wagonR for at least five-six years, this article is a complete waste of time
not a gud one design interiors are good only
Agree. But I still love my Punto! And honestly, this time Hyundai’s fluidic theme didn’t seem to work, as the outgoing i20 looks far better than the new i20.
In my opinion , Bike enthusiasts love Royal Enfield Bullet no matter if it doesnt have host of features.. they just love it for the ride quality built and looks.. LIKEWISE i’d say for PUNTO in cars.Its built ride quality and looks… I luv my Punto..
PUNTO…Jo Diwana Bana De…i20 feature wise very pretty machine
Punto always. Hyundai entertains the driver by giving a lots of features but Fiat gives a steering wheel which entertains the driver the most than any other feature. i20 is a Four wheeler, Punto is a Car, a perfect car. That is the difference.
i20 is a good machine and not a car…punto is a car…car always has a soul…all korean cars are white goods…they lack liveliness and soul…
PUNTO gr88 car….no compare in drive and comfort with i20. hundai never worked over technology and safety…punto is the best hatch back in india followed by swift and figo….i20 is beautiful box of features friends…its all fake an I vote Punto instead…i20…i20 is waste …and junk….
Punto the king of hacthback segment…!
Everybody speaks in one voice that Punto is Best hatch and it is also true. Then why people are not supporting his best hatch by purchasing it rather then purchasing Swift or i20. I urge Punto fans support Fiat not Suzuki or Hyundai.
man if everybody loves punto then why does it not looks alike in terms of sales……m too a punto fan….
Its needs brain to buy a car..and indians go for ebtra stuffings and polished cars…they never know the technology stuffs …for them all cars are same…and ecte ct
i m a proud owner of Swift ZXI(2006), but a week ago i decided to sell it, and buy a new hatchback, untill now i was considering to buy among figo, i20, micra or desire…. but after doing my research, i have made up my mind to buy Fiat punto…..!! hope my decision will be correct.
Yes Prateek, I’m sure you’d love your Fiat. And I look forward to read your experience of driving a Punto after a Swift.
Fiat Punto and Swift Same engine…but u love to drive Punto compared to swift…
Punto is a not car…it is a CAAAAAAAR
