Hi Shailesh,
As you already have the Maruti Wagon R, which is among most-preferred cars in cities like Delhi (very handy to drive in heavy traffic conditions), you can go for an entry-level-sedan in your budget of Rs 5 to 6 lakh. In this price range you have plenty of options including Maruti Swift Dzire, Tata Manza and Indigo and Ford Ikon. Among these cars, Maruti Swift Dzire is the better option for you as it has segment leading fuel-economy and considerably low maintenance.
Now, if you are not so keen on buying a sedan model, your budget enables you to purchase the top variants of some popular cars of this segment like Hyundai i20 and Volkswagen Polo.
Please do let us know your feedback so that we can make this process more efficient and more helpful for other customers.

Hi Shailesh,
As of now, there is no indication from the company's side regarding the discontinuation of Aveo model in India. Though sales of this car are dipping day by day the company is pretty optimistic about its sales , as it has recently launched a CNG version of Aveo in India.
Now as you are comparing it with Hyundai Accent and i20, you have to be clear about your requirements from your perspective car. The Hyundai i20 is a hatchback model and very handy to drive in heavy traffic conditions of cities. It has a better fuel economy of 13 to 17 km/l as compare to the mileage of other two models. At the same time if sedan cars like Accent and Aveo are more specious, more comfortable to drive. Among Aveo and Accent the later one is better in terms of mileage, maintenance and performance. So, it totally depends on your requirements that for which car you should go.

  • Certain user reviews about Maruti Baleno says that it has very poor rear suspension. Is it true?. Also it is heard that Baleno is made by using light weight material. Is there is any safty problem due to this light weight material

    Published On :Oct 18, 2016 Riju

    The Baleno is equipped with McPherson struts in front and a torsion beam rear suspension. The suspension struts at the rear eat up a little boot space, as they intrude into the cabin. Ride quality is good, although at high speeds the car does feel pretty light. If you hit a rough patch, it does tend to get thrown about – and that’s where you feel how light it is. The Baleno is tuned more for comfort than sportiness, which is a good thing. With 170 mm of ground clearance, the car can handle its fair share of bad roads too. The brakes are sharp and at par with the Maruti Swift’s braking ability. 

    A big talking point in the new Baleno is, the fact that it has the new platform which makes it lighter and stronger plus, we may add that in terms of build quality it feels the best from Maruti with both paint finish and overall build being very good.

    Well - as per Maruti Suzuki - one of the prime reason for weight reduction is all new chassis 
    As per manufacturer - this new chassis is even more rigid and basis the highlights "The innovative new platform has improved the crash resiliency, enhanced the rigidity and improved NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) performance."

    Maruti has offered ABS with EBD with dual airbags as standard, which to us is reason enough to buy the Baleno.

    We have not heard of any complaints regarding the suspension of the Baleno. In fact, when we had the car for the review, it quite impressed us. In my opinion, it could be a problem or an issue with a particular piece, let that not spoil your choice of car. The only issue that has to come light with respect to the Baleno is the fact that it has long waiting periods and that is there because it is actually a nice, well-rounded package. 

  • i am little bit confuse between ciaz and honda city ?? please share some info which would i will buy??

    Maruti Ciaz vs Honda City


    Honda City retains a lot of styling from the previous generation and it is similar in length too. The Ciaz on the other hand is a lot more premium looking. The Ciaz because of its lower height and a bit longer. This makes it look a lot longer than the City. 

    Honda City has trendy yet premium looking interiors. The black interiors with the piano black centre console looks stylish. There is a three spoke steering wheel with controls for audio and there are even cruise control buttons too. On the other hand, the interior styling of the Ciaz is a lot more subtle and feels more sophisticated. The black and beige interiors of this sedan makes it feel airy. The Ciaz SHVS has a simple dash with familiar Maruti steering wheel.

    Engine Specifications:

    Petrol : It's in the engines department where the City begins to pull away from the Ciaz, literally and figuratively. Honda's 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine is in a class of its own. It develops 119PS, a massive 27PS more than that of the 1.4-litre K-series petrol Ciaz's engine. The City petrol is also the freer revving unit till you reach a high 5000rpm when it begins to get coarse. The Ciaz on the other hand feels gruff above 2000rpm and short on legs in comparison. Even in gears, especially the higher ones, the City has considerably more punch, making overtaking and short bursts in power more enjoyable. In town lower down the rev band, both are easy to drive and it's where the Ciaz doesn't keep you wanting for more, but get on the open road at triple digit speeds and the Honda City is definitely the better pick. The City also has a slicker shifting gearbox too. There's nothing wrong with the Ciaz's with their short throws and smooth shifts but the City slots crisper shifts. 

    Diesel: Honda has plonked in a more powerful engine than Maruti Suzuki. It is a lot more punchy and then you can drive it with ease. There is a lot of power at most of the engine speeds, which means you do not have to shift gears very often, be it in city or even the highway. This is one of the most strongest points of the Honda City.

    This means better performance and fuel-efficiency too.

    Talking of the numbers, City has a 1.5-litre i-DTEC (diesel) engine that chunks 98bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The gear lever is small and easy to shift.

    The Ciaz SHVS on the other hand has a 1.3-litre diesel engine with SHVS technology. Now, this is the hybrid start stop system that even has brake regeneration. This is the same 1.3-litre engine that was there on the Ciaz. This hybrid system helps to improve the fuel-efficiency. The drivability of the Ciaz SHVS is good and is easy to drive in the city or even on the highway. This diesel engine comes with a five-speed manual transmission. 

    Ride, handling and ease of driving: 

    While the Ciaz has better ride, the City is a better handler. The Ciaz offers better grip though in tighter corners with its larger 195 section tyres where the City’s 175s begin to squeal sooner. The Ciaz is a better commuter and the City is more of an enthusiast’s pick overall.


    It’s extremely hard to ignore the Maruti Ciaz, especially at this price. It comes with kitted all the bells and whistles and Maruti has done a fine job with its design, inside and out. The Ciaz is also very efficient and offers fantastic ride quality. It doesn't however impress with its engine. When you are paying close to a million rupees, you don't want your petrol car to do just one thing well, which is being a good city commuter. Here, the Honda City makes its case. It is acceptably efficient if you don't ask much from the engine and quick when you want to close that gap or munch those miles. It also handles better and pampers its occupants more. Maruti has a good package in the Ciaz but the Honda City is still overall the better deal.

  • I have alto K10 vxi - Oct 2016. After I take turn, my power steering does not come automatically in original position and need to take it manually. is it usual ?

    Published On :Oct 15, 2016 By Arun

    No, it isn't.

    If steering wheel takes a great deal of effort to turn – this can be caused by a power steering pump going bad, a leaking steering rack, or low power steering fluid. Steering wheel "wander" – if you notice your vehicle swaying from one side to the other when you turn the wheel, you might have bad strut bearings or tie rods. Broken steering rack mounts or worn ball joints also cause this problem.
