Answers for this Question

Tiago diesel has a larger engine and is evidently peppier compared to Kwid. Its 1.05-litre Revotorq Engine churns out 69bhp@4000rpm and 140Nm@1800-3000rpm which delivers far better performance than Kwid's 1.0-litre.

Dimensionally, the Tiago is marginally larger on the outside, but the cabin space inside both the cars is almost identical. There is enough room for four adults with some space left over for an occasional fifth occupant. The Kwid has a noticeably larger 300 liter boot compared to 242 liter boot-space inside the Tiago. However, the Tiago's interiors feels more premium and well-appointed when compared with Kwid. 

In terms of ride and handling, the Tiago feels more enthusiastic and responsive around corners. Tiago also handles the rough roads better than the Kwid, though the Kwid itself has outstanding ride quality considering its tiny footprint. Both cars exhibit better than expected stability at high speeds.

Verdict - The Kwid is amongst the best options in the segment. As an overall package, it provides distinctive styling, good driving performance and a good list of accessories. It also beats its competitors in terms of interior space and fuel economy.  If you are on an absolute budget, the Kwid makes for a sensible purchase. It is spacious, reasonably comfortable and easy to drive.

The Tiago is a better package in every sense. It has the better engine, has more space, more creature comforts and most importantly, more safety tech. If you are looking for a hatchback that is trendy, has loads of features and ample amount of space, the Tiago fits the bill nicely. It is definitely more value for money compared to the Kwid.

  • Baleno 1.2 Zeta or Hyundai i20 Asta 1.2 ?

    Published On :2017-01-16 06:03:19.0 By Arun

    It is hard to pick one out of the cars that you have selected. Both cars are quite nice to drive and compete neck to neck with each other. i20 has got some extra comfort features like glove box cooling, Air Quality Control and rear AC vents in Hyundai i20 Asta 1.2 . On the other front Baleno has ABS, EBD and dual airbags which are standard across all the variants. Baleno is lighter as compared to i20 which helps it to attain higher speed in less amount of time. i20 on the other hand is heavy and is quite confident to drive over turns. Our pick here would be Baleno as it is fresh and also is easy to maintain. On top of that, it offers you better fuel economy. Click here to check out the comparison.

  • I am confused between Duster AWD and safari storme varicor 400 4x4. Which of the two is more fun to drive ? also what is the real life mieage of both the cars.

    Published On :2017-01-14 13:35:06.0 By Arun

    Both cars are great, Duster is compact, less powerful and short in height hence is easier to maneuver in traffic. Due to the less power that it generates, it is also more fuel efficient. On the other front, Safari is massive, it has a bigger engine, it is bigger is dimensions and hence, is less fuel efficient. In order to choose one out of these, you need to look at the conditions you would drive your car in. If you are going to drive mostly in cities, go for Duster as it is more "Car" like and if that is not the case, go for Safari. Safari would not be a good choice if you drive mostly in traffic as it hefty and massive and therefore, it isn't easy to maneuver it. When we drove them, we got about 13 KMPL by Duster and 10.4 KMPL by Safari. Click here to take a quick look at the features on offer.

  • I am looking forward to buy a Renault duster Petrol RxL. I couldn't find any useful reviews for the petrol version , the diesel has many. Going for the petrol one due to the post 10 year de-registration of diesel vehicles in Delhi. Any insights regarding the petrol version will be helpful.

    Published On :2017-01-12 02:28:39.0 By Arun
    Personally, I'd pick the diesel over the petrol. The petrol not only feels under-powered, but isn't too fuel efficient either. Moreover, since it isn't available in the top trims, it misses out on most feel-good features such as touchscreen infotainment, automatic climate control. Also, it skips out on the passenger airbag which we think is a big negative. Talking about the engine performance and drive It's smooth, and relatively quiet. Gets the job done inside the city easily. Clutch is light, but travel is still slightly long. On the highway, you get the feeling that it is under-powered..
