Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Citroen C3

    • Quirky styling grabs eyeballs. Lots to customise too.
    • Roomy cabin spacious enough for four 6-footers.
    • Air-conditioning is super strong. Chills you in no time!
    • Comfortable ride quality over a variety of roads. Confident at highway speeds too.

    Maruti Baleno

    • Spacious interior
    • Well built on the inside and out. Fitment quality feels premium now
    • Well-loaded features list
    • Refined and enjoyable to use petrol engine
    • Comfortable ride quality even over bad roads

    Citroen C3

    • No automatic options on offer.
    • No CNG variants available.
    • Lots of missing features. From basics like powered mirrors to essentials like rear wiper/defogger.

    Maruti Baleno

    • AMT is good but not as sophisticated as CVT/DCT
    • Seat cushioning is very soft which may cause problems for long drives.
    • Boot loading lip is very high
    • Not a sporty car to drive
