Answers for this Question
i have taken a test drive i liked the vehicle. Engine is not so refined like Dezire or Hyundai Xcent. but over all pickup is good . i selected this vehicle only because of good ground clearance all good features in XMS Petrol and the good space. It should be value for money. Since volume of cars on road is very less i am in double mind. Other options are XCENT and AMAZE . These vehicles are good for city purpose. i normally travel 3-4 times in a year to konkan region where roads are in bad shape in certain areas and you need good ground clearance . considering all facts i have selected the Tata ZEST. i have used TATA Bolt Diesel version for 1 year and it has excellent performance. I hope i have selected the correct car

  • Which of the two cars " ford figo 1.5 diesel trend MT" and " tata nexon petrol xm trim" is more FUN to drive ? ( both cost nearly the same )

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

    Ford Figo is well-rounded product and has solid build quality which offers the perfect balance of performance and features. It features three engines (two petrol and one diesel) and two transmission options. There's a 1.2-litre (88PS/111Nm) and a 1.5-litre petrol (112PS/136Nm) engine on offer along with a 1.5-litre diesel (100PS/215Nm). A 5-speed manual is standard with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines, while the 1.5-litre petrol engine comes exclusively with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic.

    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.

    Coming to your query, Figo is more fun to drive in comparison to Nexon. The 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine of the Tigor gets a 25PS power burst with the turbocharger on it. It makes 110PS of max power at 5000rpm and 170Nm of peak torque at 1750-4000rpm. It isn’t, however, as exciting or refined as the diesel unit. So, while the diesel engine is responsive even at low rpm, the petrol engine feels quite sluggish, and in case you’re driving with a full house, the progress gets much slower.

    The petrol engine hits the meat of its powerband just around 3000rpm and not 1750rpm, where max torque starts to kick in but yes,neither of these are reasons to rule the Nexon out completely.

  • Which car is best baleno vs swift!

    Published On :2017-09-19 11:48:13.0 Amit

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

    Both the options that you've selected are awesome as they offer perfect balance between features & performance.

    Maruti Swift VXI is a mid range petrol variant. Its exteriors gets a few updates like a redesigned radiator grille that looks more aggressive and a tweaked bumper in body color.

    Maruti Baleno is a premium hatchback is priced aggressively when compared to its competitors & offers Dual Front Airbags, ABS & EBD (Anti-Lock Brakes & Electronic Brake Distribution) standard across all variants.

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


    Maruti Swift is a stylish, easy and fun to drive hatchback and feels quite well made too. The 1.2-litre petrol engine is peppy and responsive, while both engine options offer great fuel economy figures as well. Backed by Maruti Suzuki’s after-sales network and support, the Swift is, indeed, a can't-go-wrong-option if you’re a first time car buyer, or someone upgrading from a budget hatchback. It’s also a fantastic buy if you’re a driving enthusiast. The only drawback is it’s average cabin space and boot volume, which mean it isn’t the most practical car in the segment.

    The Baleno offers good fit and finish compared to any other car in the Maruti portfolio. The car looks beautiful from the outside and isn’t too bad on the inside either. The Baleno is a step up from the Swift in terms of what it offers. It’s perfect for someone who is looking for something more than the Swift and at the same time wants to retain the peace of mind of owning a Maruti Suzuki.
