Answers for this Question
Hi Aaquib,
Among the models shortlisted by you, two models are SUV's and two are sedans. Choosing one among SUV and Sedan totally depends on your requirements from the prospective car. Where the SUV's offers better performance on long highway or off-road journeys, the sedan models are specially designed for driving in city areas.
Thus, if a sedan model suits your requirements the most than you should go for Fiat Linea, as it is better in every aspect (including performance, comfort, and fuel economy) when compared to Maruti SX4. However, if you are keen on the after sale service and low maintenance cost, than SX4 will be a better option for you.
On the other hand, if SUV's are what you are looking for, than Tata Safari Vx 4WD will be a better option for you.

    Thank you for taking out time to share your thoughts with us.

    Toyota is one the the acclaimed brand in the Indian market which has a strong after-sales service and network.

    Yes, the Toyota Fortuner offers bi-beam LED projector headlamps whereas the high end versions of Toyota Corolla Altis have LED headlamps along with daytime running lights.  

    Headlamps of a car is one of the most important aspects which lighten ahead the way and compromising with it is weighted with the safety of the passengers and the pedestrian on pathway.

    Though, we have not came across such a feedback till now that both the siblings of Toyota doesn't illuminate the way in a widen manner but in case you feel so then we would strongly recommend you to change the eyes of the car with the care of warranty under the shed of authorized service center.

  • i want purchase new SUV but confused with JEEP Compass and Hyundai Tucson, which better our budget is 20-30 lac

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

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

    Buying a car often involves a lot of research. You read reviews, ask friends for advice, and get doubts answered by the dealership among others things before making a decision. While all of these steps are essential, it is not a surefire way to get the best, which you rightly deserve. We at CarDekho want to make this decision-making process easy and fast for you by giving you all the essential information.

    It is indeed a good budget for the car. Now, let's see how both the cars stack up against each other.

    Jeep Compass Highlights

    Look at the vertically slatted nose upfront and you’ll be instantly sold on. Inside the cabin, the top-variant of the Jeep is fully loaded though the starting trim loses on some of the important features.

    The Jeep Compass is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol and a 2.0-liter diesel engine churning 160PS/250Nm and 170PS/350Nm respectively. Both these motors come mated to 6-speed manual transmission with petrol variant getting the additional option of automatic. The Jeep Compass has already become quite popular among the buyers and giving a tough competition to range of other vehicles in its category.

    Hyundai Tucson Highlights

    Hyundai has finally introduced the four-wheel-drive version of its flagship SUV, the Tucson, in India.
    The Tucson features a total of five variants and offers two engine and two transmission options. It is powered by a 185PS 2.0-litre diesel and a 155PS 2.0-litre petrol.

    CD Says:

    The Jeep Compass shines both on and off the road. It is stylish, spacious and well-equipped. While it may lose out on many features (which are made glaringly obvious in some respects), it makes up for the same with its very aggressive pricing.

    The actual competitor of the Compass in many international markets, but in India Jeep has priced the Compass so competitively that the Tucson feels overpriced at first glance. The Tucson relies heavily on its mean exterior design, leather-covered interior, powerful diesel engine and on-road manners to attract customers. It is also backed by the company's larger service network.

    Buyers in this segment expect the car to have not only functional features but also luxury touches sprinkled all over the place. Just like a luxury car in this price range, the Jeep Compass lacks several features that are available in the Tucson. Though, Compass has all the safety bits but runs short on creature comfort.

    On paper, the Compass lags a couple notches behind the rivals but an aggressive price tag can certainly give it an upper hand. The Jeep brand is also worth a lot for some buyers.

    Picking one, out of these two would be difficult as both have their own forte. So, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making a final call.

    Honda City Highlights

    The City is the flagship sedan of Honda Cars India Limited and has been consistently performing well through the thick and thin of the company. In its latest avatar, Honda has sharpened the looks of City’s arrow-shot design while building on its inherent qualities like well-proportioned demeanour and quality interiors.

    Honda City 2017 comes with two powertrains - a 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine, making raw force up to the tune of 118PS/145Nm and 100PS/200Nm respectively. Petrol Honda City comes with both manual and automatic transmission options while the diesel City features the single option of 6-speed manual gearbox.

    Coming to the query, the petrol-AT combo in Vento is available with a smaller turbocharged engine that is as powerful as the bigger unit and in fact, generates more torque at lower revs.

    If you’re immediately planning for a Volkswagen car, especially one among the Polo’s family, you can definitely save some money here. Further, there’s no clarity on the arrival of the next-generation models of the Polo and the Vento (now known as the Virtus) in the country anytime soon. So, there won’t be a dramatic change in these models next year or in the near future.   

    The petrol is available with a choice of a 5-speed manual and a CVT.  So,  if you are looking for Japanese reliability, a super refined engine and convenience features to boot, we suggest you go for the ZX petrol CVT.

    The 2017 Honda City facelift has been updated keeping in mind the requirements of the younger generation. It offers a healthy dose of style, space and features, which have helped it maintain pole position among rivals for a long time. The petrol engine is punchy and refined as ever, while the diesel, although a tad noisy at idle, continues to offer excellent driveability in the city and on the highway.

    The Volkswagen Vento shares the platform, powertrain, strengths and weaknesses with the Skoda Rapid, however, desperately needs a generation change or at least a facelift. It has a heavy build quality and a great balance between ride and handling. These are features you'll appreciate only after you've lived with the car for some time. What you won't like is the sparse service network, high maintenance costs in case of a breakdown and low resale value.

    Considering all the parameters, we would suggest you to pick for "H" badge City.

    You can have an eye on Hyundai Verna, Maruti Ciaz or Skoda Rapid as well.
