Hello,Can you please suggest the best car between Hyundai i10 Era, Hyundai i10 Magna 1.1L, Hyundai i10 Magna and Maruti A-Star Vxi, Maruti A-Star Zxi performance wise? I need the car mainly for city driving and occasional breaks on highways. Driving Comfort and I am 5ft 10 inches tall and Leg spacings are important for me. Rear leg spacing is also my concern somewhat as 2 - 3 persons will accompany me sometimes. I also consider cheap maintenance and readily available of spare parts. I don't want to stretch my budget beyond 4.5 lakhs. I will driving the car majorly in metros (Delhi NCR) and very rarely in Tier I and Tier II cities. I have also planned to use CNG in coming times as in the month my running distance varies grossly between 200 Km - 650 Km and rarely 1200 KM. Can you also suggest any other alternatives?

I think that you can easily go for i10 and that too the SPORTZ version as u have mentioned your budjet between 4-5lacs.It will come in your budjet. and u know i10 is a very nice car with great handling and driving pleasure and ofcourse it will give a good mileage.i10 is far better than A-STAR. GO FOR i10

Hi Subhajit,

The Magna is advanced variant of Hyundai i10 and has more features than Era, Magna is available with both both 1.1 and 1.2L petrol engine. The car is very fuel efficient and have good leg room for long persons. While Zxi is the top end variant of Maruti A-Star which has blessed with more features than Vxi, both the cars have same 1.2L petrol engine. This is reliable, very good performer, fuel efficient car. Spare parts are available anywhere in the market and maintenance is affordable. But let room is short than i10. Now you are the best judge.

For further details about the car please click on the given link in body text.

Thank you.

if you want a reliable car go for toyota's and a good reliable car with low budget go for maruti's, we indian's go after false statements.

I suggest that you go for the new Wagon R CNG version. A very spacious car and you get a company fitted CNG kit too. It fits your budget too. And Maruti service and spare part availability is world renowned. Best of Luck

Pls note the Maruti A Star has a 998 cc engine and not a 1.2 engine as mentioned above

    Hey, its great that you are planning for a new car and Hyundai Xcent is indeed an amazing car. We must appreciate your choice. Hyundai has recently launched the facelift version of the Xcent which has gone through some cosmetic changes on the exteriors and interiors. Talking about the performance specifically, this car is being offered with 1.2 diesel and petrol engine. The petrol trim is capable of delivering a power of 84 bhp with a torque of 114 Nm whereas the diesel engine can deliver a power of 74 bhp with a torque of 190 nm. Talking about the mileage figures, the diesel motor delivers a maximum mileage of 25.4 kmpl (Highway) whereas the petrol motor delivers a maximum mileage of 20.14 kmpl (Highway). Now, there is no direct comparison between the performance between the performance of Hyundai Xcent and Elite i20 because of the engine difference. The petrol trim is same 1.2 liter engine but in diesel, the i20 comes with a 1.4 liter engine.

  • want to know Ameo petrol performance..???

    Published On :2017-05-20 15:22:11.0 PRALHAD


    We appreciate your interest towards car and your keenness to know the performance of VW Ameo. 

    Firstly talking about petrol variant, the petrol 1.2-litre is a tried and tested engine, 73bhp is what it produces and there's 110Nm of torque on offer and you might say the power is pretty sufficient for the segment. 

    About diesel, 1.5-litre, 4 cylinder diesel engine, which has been used in the Polo and the Vento, and it now makes its way into the Ameo. But what VW has managed to extract is more power out of this unit, which means that the Ameo is more powerful than the Polo. What Volkswagen has also managed to give the Ameo is a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The 5-speed manual is a familiar unit and the gearshifts are smooth, which makes it a good companion, in both city traffic conditions and out on the highway.
