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.
abhi on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 10:14:43 PM
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

  • Which one is better Baleno Delta or baleno Delta CVT ...Please specify merit and demerit of both

    Published On :Oct 24, 2016 By Arun

    Maruti Baleno 1.2 CVT and Maruti Baleno 1.2 CVT Delta:

    Both the cars are similar in terms of mechanism, features and other aspects. The only difference is,  Maruti Baleno 1.2 CVT Delta is paired with a continuously variable transmission gear box that further improves the delivery of power and torque output. 

    Click here to see the overview of Maruti Baleno.

    Which one will be better? It is a matter of personal preference. The points which are covered below will help you to take a final decision. 

    There are several advantages of an automatic car over a manual transmission car. The main advantage of an automatic car is the driving comfort. This driving comfort of an automatic car in a traffic jam has to be experienced for you to know what you have been missing. No more being so tired while driving through the constant traffic jams in the Cities of India, because you do not have to be pressing the clutch and changing gears all the time.

    Apart from the driving comfort, the other advantage of automatic cars is that the maintenance cost of an automatic gear car could be lesser than a manual car over the lifetime of the car. This is because the gears are changed automatically at the correct engine RPM and speeds and the driving is always very smooth without any jerks. This contributes to longer life of the drive train parts of the car including longer tyre life.


    Driving a vehicle with a CVT is a very different experience and many drivers to not like it because you do not feel the engine accelerating; you do not feel any shifts instead you feel the engine racing as it would with a slipping clutch or a failing transmission which is just the CVT adjusting to provide optimal power.

    Advantages and Disadvantages of a Manual Transmission: 


    1. Easier to maintain: Since they are less complex than automatics, there is less of a chance for something to go wrong. The clutch is the only item that generally needs repair, but for the most part that isn't needed for hundreds of thousands of miles.

    2. Use of gear or engine oil: This fluid deteriorates less quickly and doesn't require frequent changes.

    3. Cheaper: In general, brand-new stick shift vehicles are cheaper than their automatic counterparts.


    1. Difficulty on hills: Stopping on a hill and starting again can be inconvenient as well as scary. Since the vehicle rolls back, drivers have rolled into traffic or stalled.

    2. Pain from the clutch. Your left leg will be in constant use when driving a stick shift car. Over time, it can mess with the joints in the leg.

  • is touch screen player is good one or manaual is good

    Published On :Oct 22, 2016 By Arun

    Hey, it is a matter of personal preference or choice, still, touchscreen is more convenient. There are many advantages if you have a touchscreen media infotainment in your car.  

    Fantastic looks are a great starting point, but there's much more that you can get.
    You can see all the information you need at a single glance, making it easier to keep your eyes on the road. You’ll also have expansion options like navigation and a rear-view camera available to you in the future.

    With a large screen acting as your receiver's display, it's a whole lot easier to read than the 2- or 3-line displays of typical car receivers. You'll enjoy being able to read more information about what you're listening to. Bigger icons, split-screen capability, and more screen real estate add up to a satisfying car audio experience. You'll be able to keep your eyes on the road a whole lot better if you're not squinting at your display, or waiting for the info to scroll by. In fact, everything you do with your receiver is easier when you have a large, touchscreen interface. Here are some examples of how these receivers can make your drive much easier.

    Bluetooth usability

    Bluetooth lets you enjoy hands-free conversation using your compatible phone. You’ll be able to see caller information instantly with a big screen in your dash, so you can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Some receivers also allow audio streaming from phones.

    GPS navigation

    Get a better map view than phones or most portable navigators can deliver. And if your receiver doesn’t feature built-in navigation, you might be able to add guidance with an outboard unit, or connect to an iPhone app like MotionX-GPS Drive that works over 3G signals.

    Convenient control

    One of the main advantages of any big-screen receiver is the ease of going through the menus. Whether you’re looking for a song on your iPod, a favorite satellite radio station, or the EQ settings, a big, colorful touchscreen makes finding functions intuitive and simple.
