Why is Renault Kwid so light weight? The kerb weight of cars in the segment are Renault Kwid (699Kg) Maruthi Alto 800 LXi(720Kg) Tata GenX Nano XM(725Kg ) Datsun Go D(769Kg) Hyundai Eon D-Lite(715Kg) Chevrolet Spark(840Kg) Tata Tiago(930Kg) Does it mean in Kwid quality is compromised?It looks great,but is it reliable,safe in the long run.
The kerb weight of Renault Kwid is less because weight reduction has been achieved by innovative means like three bolts on each wheel instead of the usual four and a single windshield wiper, a reduction of about 14 kg from wiring clips and bindings throughout the car and a lightweight all-aluminium engine. Further, to reduce the weight, the wing mirrors are finished in plastic.
All this results to make the car affordable and in addition to this - It helped Kwid to become India's most fuel efficient car, with ARAI certified fuel efficiency being 25.17 kmpl. But, the low weight does not result in a loss of the torsional rigidity of the car and the Kwid has an upper hand in safety department, as it is offered with an optional airbag on the driver's side for the top end variant.

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.

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.

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.
Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making a final call.
