Like Datsun Go, Mahindra KUV100 or Renault Kwid ATM - what cars in India have gearbox on the dashboard ?
There are no mainstream car as such, however, Hyundai i10 can be considered in the same category despite it has the gear lever high set, but floor mounted.
I am 43 yrs old and using Ford Figo Diesel since 2011. I am happy with it except for ground clearance. Now I am planning to upgrade for SUV. I am nri and My avg driving is max 8000 kms/year. I prefer to buy petrol/AWD/Auto/SUV. My native is a hilly village and thus ground clearance is a major concern. My figo with 5 pers gets easily scratched on small speed breakers. My budget is upto 30 L. How is Skoda Yeti / CR-V. I want to keep new car >10 yrs? Any other options? Pls suggest suitable car
It is great that you wish to upgrade your car and thank you for elaborating your requirements so precisely. According to your requirements, we would suggest you to go for Toyota Fortuner 2.7 2WD AT (Petrol), it isn't a all wheel drive car. However, does the job perfectly. If you wish to stay with Ford since you are already maintaining a Ford and services aren't a problem for you, Ford Endeavour 3.2 Trend AT 4X4 (Diesel) is a great option to go for . This won't be a petrol variant but is value for money as you drive that much. Skoda Yeti, Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson are both good options if you wish to go for a 5 seater SUV. If you are looking for a 5 seater SUV, we would suggest you to go for Tucson as it has been facelifted recently and has all the latest features unlike Yeti and CR-V both which haven't been upgraded since a long time.

The ground clearance of the new Skoda Rapid is 163 MM earlier it was 168 MM. Click here to know all about it.
Hey, both cars that you have selected are indeed great. However, both variants belong to different fuel types. WE would suggest you to go for a diesel car if and only if you drive for more than 2000 KMS in a month as it would cost you more initially and also would be expensive to maintain. Talking about Baleno Petrol, it is swift to drive, light on the steering and offers you enourmous amount of features. Space is better with Baleno as compared to Figo. Thus, we would suggest you to go for Baleno, if you drive less and mostly drive in cities. Rest you if travel a lot and drive on highways mostly, go for Figo. Click here to check out the comparison.
