KINDLY SUGGEST WHICH IS THE BEST BUY AMOUNG THESE CARS IN TERMS OF MILEAGE, MAINTENANCE, DRIVING COMFORT, PERFORMANCE & HANDLING AND LOOKS.
Hi Vishal, go for Fiat Linea.. its diesel variants are powered by 1.3L, Multijet diesel engine which is well known for delivering high engine performance with better fuel efficiency ..... Maruti and Tata Motors also uses the same engine in there newly launched diesel cars ..... also the handling and comfort of Fiat Linea is packed with advanced luxury features that offers better handling and comfort in comparison to other cars of its segment like Hyundai Verna and Ford Fiesta ..... you can run diesel cars more than seven years but the maintenance cost of diesel car is higher than petrol cars and because of that it is suggested to only those people who need to travel 800kms or more in a month ..... for other details about this car along with its pictures and prices in your city you may visit the above link - Fiat Linea

Hi Vishal, your are looking for the best Diesel car in Sedan models, As per all features you are looking, The best first vehicle is Hyundai Verna according all Performance, Comfort for long drive, Mileage, Handling and looks this has all facilities and luxurious with equal to Fiat Linea but comparing to Engine the Hyundai Verna has good featured this was electronic chip set detection for total vehicle which as provided from the Hyundai. Second you can go for Ford Fiesta but this has delicate parts. comparing Hyundai Verna and Ford Fiesta almost all same features available in these but some what Hyundai Verna is costlier than the Ford Fiesta.

Thanks for the answer.
But which is the best as per milegae point.
Secondly Riding and handling comfort is best in which car.
Is this true that Diesel cars have less life only 7 years or so..
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.
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.
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..
Both of them belong to different segments. You will be able to purchase the base variant of Brezza in the price of the top end KUV 1OO. If features are something that you look forward to, you should go for KUV 1OO and if rigidity and better space is something that you are looking for, you should choose Brezza.
