Best car for hilly area like shimla within 5 lakhs. My daily run is 30 km. Please suggest me a perfect car.
The diesel engine of Maruti Celerio is highly-responsive and fuel-efficient. It is also BS4 emission. The Celerio Diesel is India's most fuel-efficient car, with a claimed mileage of 27.62 kmpl (under standard test conditions, ARAI-rated). It is mighty impressive, however, if there is one thing that might put you off is - the engine noise. Engine sounds very crude due to poor refinement levels. You will also find it underpowered on the expressway as it is a 2 cylinder diesel engine.
Generally, life of engines depend heavily on maintenance, driving conditions & style. It would approximately be 2.0 to 2.5 lakh kms with 1 overhauling. Moreover, it also depends on the physical condition of the car. I would recommend you to do a thorough check of your car's under body (mounts, bushes etc) to ensure they are okay.
In addition to this- get a car checked through a local mechanic or at the authorized service station to get the clear picture. Click here to find the Maruti service stations in your city by selecting your city in the drop down list.
The diesel engine of Tiago does not feel too short-handed out on the highway and it does perfectly well within the confines of the city too. The only point with the diesel engine is it's refinement. It sounds coarse at high revs, which takes away from the driving experience. Hence, the NVH levels needs improvement as a fair amount of exterior noise filters inside the passenger cabin. Also, the suspension set up seemed slightly hard with jerks being felt inside the cabin and leaves room for improvement.
Coming to the Maruti Swift Dzire - The Swift Dzire's suspension offers greater comfort and performs sufficiently on city roads and highways. The Maruti Swift DZire has always been praised for its diesel engine performance and fuel efficiency. The NVH levels are smooth and not too intrusive until you rev it hard.
Verdict - Dzire will be more comfortable, quiet and fun to drive when it is compared to Tiago.
Rest, a test drive of both will help you to make a better judgement.
The automatic W6 variants in Mahindra are Mahindra XUV500 AT W6 1.99 MHawk and Mahindra XUV500 AT W6 2WD. Both of these are diesel variants whereas Hyundai Creta 1.6 VTVT AT SX Plus is petrol automatic.
Comparing these two in terms of engine specification will be unfair for the petrol variant car as the diesel car is more superior than petrol. Mahindra XUV500 AT W6 1.99 MHawk and Mahindra XUV500 AT W6 2WD is equipped with 2.0 litre engine and 2.2 litre engine which is more powerful and torquier than 1.6 litre petrol engine of Hyundai.
When it comes to features, Hyundai trumps both the Mahindra's. Creta has a wide range of extra features when compared to Mahindra, be it comfort and convenience or the safety of passengers.
As you have mentioned that the daily running of your vehicle will be 500 kms/month, so, we suggest you to buy the petrol car as it will be more economical when it comes to its running cost or maintenance.
