You will find the Figo’s seats to be low and the footwell unnecessarily cramped. I will suggest the Ritz
Both cars are really good and you will see opinions fairly divided over here! Figo Titanium has got Bluetooth connectivity, better legroom at rear and bigger boot. Ritz ZXi has got 60/40 split seat, tall boy structure (although not an advantage but this might be needed in your case), rear power windows and powerful + fuel efficient engine.
The Ritz ZXI probably has an edge here. Bluetooth, can be easily added – you get clip-on units these days that cost about Rs. 6000. Otherwise, it’s got pretty much everything going for it. The Figo would have more boot space and rear-seat space though.
Could someone please give their opinion on Ford’s aftersales service, i guess that’s a big deciding factor.
Well, its good enough to not be a deciding factor against the Figo. Thats for sure
I would say to go for Ritz. Its more VFM than Figo and will easily draw a good resale value. Maruti’s after sale service would be a peace of mind.
Thanks everyone for your advises, finally booked Ritz zxi.
You can expect 12kmpl in city, with 16-17kmpl on the highway. Similar figures for both manual and automatic variants. Cost of service and maintenance is surprisingly economical. A regular service should cost no more than 2500-3000. Its just that parts like clutches and suspensions are quite expensive to replace. Ground clearence is average. You…[Read more]
Thanx for your encouraging comments,Sir.
The Honda City does manage to deliver 12-13Kmpl in the city and 15-16Kmpl or a bit more on the highways. As mentioned above, clutch assembly, suspension and shocker overhaul is a bit expensive but regular service is economical and Hondas don’t demand regular maintenance.
Shreyans and Abhik have given you the average mileage figures. Honda’s regular service bills are not expensive, but spares are slightly on the higher side. The good part is not much goes wrong with a City.
The avg services are affordable, if not cheap. But the good news is City doesn’t require regular services, it runs flawlessly for a long duration. The spares could be expensive but had have no faulty party yet and my city is more than two years old.
It is extremely fuel efficient and you can easily obtain around 18kmpl at speeds around 80kmph.
Honda city ZXi FE is around 15-16 on AC on highway @ 80/90 kmph
in city fuel economy is ~12kmpl in heavy traffic and ~ 14 kmpl in light traffic
The CarToq database has been filtered to show only BSIV compliant cars. The 800 is no longer available in metros and is only in tier II cities and rural areas, hence it’s not on the list.
i know it is no longer available in the metros, but i guess there are enough people who own 800s anyway n the column is for ‘cars i own’ i doesn’t matter whether it’s available new or not
for instance i own a 800 but can’t add it to my list
True. It’s a point to consider.
sx4 is more reliable and maruti has good service network and there are more other cars in the segment check them also
The Manza is a better car on the highway due to its lower stance and better engine. The only sore is Tata’s after sales support but if you build a rapport with your service station, you should be happy.
Sx4 would be a safer bet tata cars have certain reliability issues, but why don’t thou look at other cars in the segment like the rapid n fiesta
The Manza for sure has more features and a better rear seat. If you are going to be driving and not sitting as a passenger, then the SX4 feels better to drive. Depending on that, you can pick either of them. Both have the same basic engine – 1.3 diesel multijet sourced from Fiat, producing about 90 PS of power.
sx4 is a car that is more power than manza . the price rate of sx4 is low than manza. it better 2 buy sx4. And the advantage in maruthi the service. sx4 have good out look .but interior is not so good than manza. sx4 is a normal car.so sx4 is good
I would recommend Vento, since it is having excellent handling, a superior gearbox and ergonomics. The VW service is an unproven territory. It is very good for city drives as well since it has a very good suspension and can absorb bumps and potholes with ease. The paint quality is very good as well.
Verna looks stunning and loaded with features and power but does not handle well. Rapid would suit you better as it is handles better than Verna but not as feature loaded as Verna. If a looking for super stability, ride quality, safety and best in class handling, you can also consider New Ford Fiesta. It’s got most of the features that Verna has…[Read more]
Vento and Rapid are similar with very little difference and selecting either of them would not make a big difference.
Verna is indeed a bad handler rapid would be the best bet other cars they you can also consider are ford fiesta n fiat linea, as far as I know of vento when d turbo kicks in the response is too large which can make it a handful for city driving in heavy traffic
If you want to enjoy driving, you have two options. Ford Fiesta and Fiat Linea. Revanth GS said about Fiesta and all what he said holds good to Linea too. Its decently loaded with features, has best handling. Its built like a tank. Its more stable at highway speeds and handles bad roads at any speeds better than Fiesta. Its looks will put some…[Read more]
Hi, the Verna does have noticeable body roll. If your high speed driving involves swerving the vehicle and / or taking the curves while carrying speed, the Verna is bound to let you down. The Vento and Rapid are better but I personally do not recommend them, VW is the parent of Skoda and here is a link for the reason -…[Read more]
Fiat Linea really its Drivers Car..
dude u go wd verna…
Linea is car that is worth considering. especially the T-Jet petrol engine. but when it comes to 1.3litre diesel engine, I feel for cars of this segment, 1.5litre engines is the bare minimum these days. Diesel version of Linea is petty slow, feels rattley at idle even though it handles brilliantly.. Both Linea and Fiesta are capable of handling…[Read more]
go wid VERNA bcz low maintainance n has pure plesure of driving
Rapid- Driver’s car, Verna- more of a luxury car.
Specify your priorities please want a feature packed vehicle go for verna n if you want a driver’s car go for rapid n if you want a petrol car I could also look at honda city it’s the petrol mid size king

Thank you all for you suggestions.
Skoda rapid n fiat linea look like good options in your budget you can also look at nissan sunny but because of sunny’s size it can be a little difficult to park n drive in city traffic mentions your priorities for better understansing
As a self-driven diesel sedan the Rapid is a good car, followed by the Ford Fiesta. The Verna diesel is a bit bouncy at high speed, but has the most features and power among the cars here – although it will be at the top-end of you budget. Rapid Ambition diesel or Elegance diesel (if you can stretch) are good choices. Sunny / Scala would be better…[Read more]
Maruti Suzuki new Dzire or Toyota Etios.
There are two options with slightly different appeal. Nissan Sunny which is a very spacious car and delivers pretty good mileage-in the range of 16 kmpl. Otherwise, there is Vento which has nice balance between ride and handling but does not have the kind of space Sunny has. Verna has more outright power than either of them but the rest of the car…[Read more]
is Linea good For after sale service??
I own a Fiat and don’t have any trouble. That said, bear in mind that after sales is highly dependent on the dealer. If the dealer is good the after sales service is good, otherwise people have to take help of the manufacturer. Fiat is known to respond and I must say that the response usually is known to be exceptionally fast and result oriented.…[Read more]
Hi, As FIAT demands service once a year or 15k kms and also they might come up with exclusive FIAT service centers, i think service should not be an issue.
My top 3 choices would be 1. Skoda Rapid. 2. Hyundai Verna 1.4. 3. Fiat Linea
Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento are great cars, but the Rapid is the real VFM one among the two. The Verna has a lot of bling and a very nice diesel under the hood, but comes undone due to a poor suspension and suspect handling. If your driving is mostly in the city the Verna should do it for you, but for mixed city and highway runs the German…[Read more]
Verna is the best car
1) Most fuel efficient in its class.
2) High resale value.
3) Best looking car the new fluidic design.
go wid VERNA or VENTO
The Piaggio apart from the badge itself is demanding that premium for a very well built scooter keeping that retro-styling but still managing to deliver a technologically updated scooter with an all metal body construction. Once you test ride both of your examples and pit them against the Vespa, I am pretty much sure you will swing towards the Vespa.
Thanks I guess I’ll just have to test drive and decide thanks again
Sure, no problem and do let us know your feedback once you have test ridden and compared these scooters.
go wid VESPA its a funky bike n has gr8 comfort
