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

jatin on 2010-11-13 17:57:34.0
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.

go for Maruti A-star Zxi, compact, stylish,good mileage, comfortable, excelent performance.
Dr C.Vanlalhlua on 2010-11-12 18:31:38.0
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 2010-11-10 22:14:43.0
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
Naveen Nair on 2010-11-10 08:47:26.0
Pls note the Maruti A Star has a 998 cc engine and not a 1.2 engine as mentioned above

  • WHICH IS THE BEST CAR IGNIS OR SWIFT

    Published On :2017-10-09 16:38:35.0 By Arun

    Thank you for showing faith in our services & writing to us.

    It's good to know that you wish to know about car & we'll be glad to assist you.

    Maruti Ignis has good amount of headroom and legroom and stand out from the crowd. The Ignis is available in four variants - Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha. Engine options include the 84PS 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and the 75PS 1.3-litre DDiS190 engine. Both engines can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.

    Maruti Swift has refined petrol and punchy diesel engine makes it quite fun to drive. It is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel engine. Both the diesel and petrol engines are coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission.

    Click here - Compare Maruti Ignis and Maruti Swift

    Verdict:

    Both the siblings are backed by Maruti Suzuki’s after-sales network and support. The Ignis’s design makes it stand out, but it may not appeal to everyone. The cabin is spacious and practical for four adults whereas the Swift name has gained its popularity for all the right reasons. It’s a stylish, easy and fun to drive hatchback and feels quite well made too.

    The only drawback is it’s average cabin space and boot volume, which mean it isn’t the most practical car in the segment. It is best suited to individual buyers or small families with young children.

    We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.

    It's good to hear that you wish to buy a car & thank you for making us a part of it.

    Please find highlights of Nexon.

    1. The top-of-the-line Tata Nexon gets features like 6.5-inch ‘ConnectNext’ HD touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, multiple drive modes (Eco, City and Sport), projector headlamps with daytime running lights, an 8-speaker sound system (4 speakers + 4 tweeters) and automatic climate control with rear AC vents.

    2. Safety features in the Nexon include dual front airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and ABS with EBD and CSC (corner stability control) as standard.

    3. It comes with 1.5-litre Turbo Charged Diesel Engine (108.5bhp / 260Nm) & 1.2-litre Turbo Charged Engine (108.5bhp / 170Nm).

    4. The Tata Nexon delivers a claimed mileage of 17kmpl for the petrol variant and 21.5kmpl for the diesel trims.

    Coming to the query, Tata’s debut sub-4m SUV gets a turbocharged petrol and diesel engines with a standard 6-speed manual. It is all new engine & has been added for the first time. Both have been developed by Tata in-house, and while the petrol engine is exactly a turbocharged version of the Tigor’s engine, the diesel engine is completely new.

    This has to be Tata’s best diesel engine till date, and it can very well be considered one of the better diesel engines in the compact car space.

    The Nexon gets three drives modes – Sport, Eco and City, and all the three vary the character of the engine so much so that you can actually make use of them wisely. So, you need to worry about it & can place your hard-earned money on it.

    It not only undercuts its direct rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Ford EcoSport, but also popular cross-hatches like the Honda WR-V and the Hyundai i20 Active.

    If you will be driving around 50-70kms.(Approx.) a day, we will suggest you to go with diesel variant. Otherwise, if your driving will be less, than you can opt for petrol variant.

    On the other hand, we have bagful of information about the new Nexon.

  • Hi, I want you to help me choose in buying between Hyundai Elite i20 (ASTA 1.2), FORD Figo ASPIRE (TITANIUM PLUS), FORD Figo Sports edition, TATA Nexon (XM). Here special consideration to be taken is I will be driving most of the time of rough roads so the suspension should be good.

    Published On :2017-09-24 08:29:32.0 By Arun

    Thank you for considering us worthy enough to address your concern & writing to us.

    All the options you've selected are indeed awesome & stand apart in their own way.

    Hyundai Elite i20 is a all-rounder product which has a fantastic exterior styling. It now comes with an updated list of features and choice of dual-tone body colours as well.

    Ford Aspire is very well designed sub-4 metre sedan which offers good driveability and long list of features. The Sports Edition Aspire comes with a retuned suspension setup for better handling and stability.

    The Ford Figo makes for a nice city commuter. Not so long ago, Ford introduced the Sportier ‘S’ version of the hatchback, the Ford Figo S, in April 2017. The Ford Figo Sports features a retuned suspension setup and bigger tyres for relatively better handling and stability, while mechanically, it remains the same. Also on offer are go-fast aesthetic additions such as a new mesh grill, dual-tone paint schemes, decals and red interior upholstery stitching and leather wrapped steering wheel.

    The feature list of Tata Nexon is on par with its immediate rivals, and there are clever touches (like the umbrella holder and the activity key) that make it stand out. Add to the mix the torquey diesel engine, and the generous cabin/boot space it also has eye-catching design.

    Click here - Compare Ford Figo and Ford Aspire and Hyundai Elite i20 and Tata Nexon

    Verdict:

    Compared to the earlier version, the Elite i20 is a step up in terms of ride quality and comfort. Taking on potholes and broken roads is easy as long as you stick to low speeds. The suspension is compliant and isn’t bouncy any more.

    For the ford product (Figo / Aspire) the suspension is set on the softer side. It is tuned for comfort which lets the Ford soak in the bumps easily. That said, the rear passengers get thrown about quite a bit over broken roads and the electronic power steering is almost too light by Ford standards.

    The Nexon gets McPherson struts up front and a twist beam setup at the rear. The ride is a nice compromise between hard and soft and because there’s not much body roll, it feels plush on the inside. It deals with potholes in the manner of bigger SUVs. So all you feel inside is a toned down thud and a little vertical movement that settles down pretty quick.

    To sum up, we would suggest you to pick for Ford Figo or Tata Nexon.

    We also recommend you to take a test drive before making a final call.

  • Which is better car Ford ecosport vs Vitara Brezza vs Honda WRV vs Tata Nexon ?

    Published On :2017-09-27 12:13:28.0 By Arun

    Thank you for showing faith in our services & writing to us.

    All the options you've selected are awesome & it's difficult to choose one out of all.

    Ford Ecosport has a contemporary styling which turns a lot of heads. It comes among the best looking SUVs in its class and well-rounded product from Ford.

    Maruti Vitara Brezza looks muscular and it is completely a attractive package. Belonging to Maruti Family, comes with strong after-sales network. It comes with just one engine option – the 1.3-litre DDiS200, which produces 86.2PS of power and 200Nm of torque and is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission.

    Honda WR-V has a distinctive styling and both engines are fuel-efficient and offer good city driveability. It comes with Dual Airbags and ABS with EBD as standard safety feature.

    Tata Nexon is equipped with refined diesel engine which is lively at low revs; the petrol motor could’ve been a notch more responsive. It gets drive modes that change the character of the engine. The dynamics of Nexon offers a comfortable ride without any compromise on handling.

    Verdict:

    If you need a sporty, practical and feature loaded offering that gives you the predictability and ease of use of a hatchback, along with the look and ground clearance of an SUV, the EcoSport is a great option.

    Brezza is high on features and has practical touches too, such as the smart seating arrangement. The proven and reliable engine, along with a strong after-sales network, make the Brezza an extremely attractive package.

    Honda WRV has distinctive styling, it gets some nice features, many of which, are shared with the Honda City. However, it’s a hard sell when compared to more convincing crossovers like the Ford EcoSport or the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

    The Nexon’s loud styling might not appeal to all, but will definitely click with those looking for something hatke. Yes, quality control on the Nexon could’ve been slightly better and the petrol motor could’ve been a notch more responsive. That said, neither of these are reasons to rule the Nexon out completely.
