Answers for this Question

Options make our life easier but not always, especially when all the options stand at par with each other. This is exactly what happens when we have to take a decision while buying a car from a variety of alternatives hitting the market, and all of them competing neck to neck with each other. So, how do we decide which car to buy?  There are number of aspects that we need to consider before making up our mind. A few of them can be:

>Decide on your budget
>Decide for the segment you want to buy: a compact car, a Sedan or an SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)
>Look for the detailed interior and exterior features of the options available in your segment like engine power, gear box, mileage, car handling and breaking, and other technical features.
>Gather prior information of the best sellers in the market by going through the market surveys, and don’t forget to ask for discounts and incentives if offered by the manufacturer.

If you're in the market to buy a new car and you have approximately INR 9 lakhs to spend, then you might find yourself in a dilemma. It's obviously not a bad thing, but making a decision will be tough, especially if you're not certain which segment suits your needs the best. There’s so much to choose from. You’ve got hatches, sedans, MPVs and small SUVs as well. 

There is a list of vehicles which we feel are the best cars in India below 9 lakhs.

Maruti Baleno: The Baleno offers the perfect balance of performance, features & quality. The Baleno offers good fit and finish compared to any other car in the Maruti portfolio. The car looks beautiful from the outside and isn’t too bad on the inside either. While the diesel may seem underpowered, it makes up with a lightweight body and splendid fuel economy. In terms of performance, it falls in the middle of the segment and the car is easy to drive in city conditions. One of the biggest advantages of having the Baleno over the completion is the access to Maruti’s unmatched after sales and service network. 

Hyundai Elite i20: I20 created the premium hatchback segment in our market and this hatch has always been rich on features. If you want a feature rich hatchback, look no further.

VOLKSWAGEN POLO GT TSI: One of the hottest hatchbacks on sale in India currently, the Polo GT TSI combines the standard car's practicality with performance. It is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI motor producing 104 bhp and 175 Nm of torque making it one of the most powerful hatchbacks. That engine has been mated to VW's 7 speed DSG dual clutchbox and what you get is car that is an absolute hoot to drive.

FORD ECOSPORT: It has looks, it's packed with features, being a Ford it's good to drive and its got very good engines. The SUV-like exterior with a rear mounted spare wheel and high ground clearance has been a hit with Indian customers and also helps in tackling our roads.Inside there's as much space a big hatchback and the feature list is never ending. Combine that with great engines and great driving dynamics what you get is a vehicle that is hard to fault.

Ford Aspire:  It's the best looking car in its segment, it's got well-appointed spacious interiors and plenty of new features that would keep even a tech geek happy. Its also good to see that Ford hasn't compromised on safety.

Honda City: The Honda City has always been popular with Indian car buyers. The car is good fun to drive, comes packed with features and the automatic version even gets paddle shifters.

Apart from this, it's time for some exciting new and facelift/update launches. While these cars will be launched across the span of next five months, most of them are expected to arrive around the festive season. Click here "19 Cars Under Rs 19 Lakh Launching This Year". So, you have enough time to take a smart decision by comparing them.

    In a press release, Stefan Jacoby, GM executive vice-president and president of GM International said, “We explored many options, but determined the increased investment originally planned for India would not deliver the returns of other significant global opportunities. It would also not help us achieve a leadership position or compelling, long-term profitability in the domestic market. Difficult as it has been to reach this decision, it is the right outcome to support our global strategy and deliver appropriate returns for our shareholders."

    Verdict:

    Maruti S-Cross doesn’t have the road presence you’d get from a similarly priced compact/mid-sized SUV, but if you’re looking for a classy and understated package, the S-Cross does the job perfectly. On the other hand, Hyundai i20 Active, it’s not an off-roader, but thanks to the raised ground clearance, it can deal with rough roads better. It’s still a great city car and offers the easy of use you’d expect of a hatchback, but thanks to the cosmetic changes, it has more road presence too.
