SX4 is the answer. Am serving in IAF, and also testing new cars for buying. Honda is hyped up is my firm conclusion from research. Under equipped for much higher price. When I inquired about this, the salesman gives a condescending smile and says sir, it's a Honda. I say boy, talk to me, I fly a 250 crore machine. What attitude. And Indians fall for it (reviewers always see Honda's cup as half full and Maruti's as half empty). SX4 (new with VVT) is radically different from the old one (have driven both). Silent engine (can't hear at idle), better economy (previously a sour point). Bigger 16" alloys. Ground clearance unbeatable (as good as Scorpio). Honda? No Climate Control (even the DZire has it), no CD player (and you can fit one only from Honda at 15-16K. That's cheating in my opinion), so what if there's USB, the SX4 ZXi has USB too. Cheap plastics in City interior, yes sir. So don't berate the SX4. Finally, try out the Linea too. Super VFM,eqpmt, size. 1+ Lakh for Honda engine?No.

I was in the same boat, six months back, as in which you are right now. I had also narrowed down on these cars only. Finally I went for SX4 due to following reasons:
(a) Easy maintenance and wide service network ( I am also in defence).
(b) Features like ABS/ air bags at lower prices (almost 1 lac cheaper than ANHC)
(c) low maintenance cost
Ahemdabad is cheapest.
If you have got any queries regarding the buying/ registration procedure, call me on 9223564168, I will be glad to help.

Hi Shekhar, Maruti SX4 is good for all and low maintenance than the Honda City and service is less priced in Maruti SX4 and if you go for Honda City this is a more costly in service and maintenance of the car depends on you were if maintained in good condition you will have monthly maintenance around Rs 2000/- to 3000/- for both cars and you will get free service including warranty from the company side 2years to 3years. There is no need to worry about servicing. Maruti SX4 you can go for ZXi its a fully loaded variant all safety features available like ABS and Airbags these are the main features in safety that is available in Zxi variant and more resale values are in Maruti and Honda. Spare parts are cheap in Maruti SX4 and Less price you can get in Chandigarh more costly is Honda City .Compare Honda City and Maruti SX4. Thank You
Yes, you can fix the reverse camera in Maruti SuzukiSx4. However, it recommended that you must buy and install the camera from the Authorised Maruti Suzuki dealer. To track the nearest Maruti Suzuki dealer please visit the link below:
It depends on the usage and maintenance, we have seen that people having cars for more than a century and having cars that have done 16 lakh Kms. So, if you maintain your car and drive it safely, you can have it with you for a lifetime.
