The Volkswagen Vento is a fantastic car. It's simple and elegant design tends to age well. With regular updates VW has ensured that it is able to keep up with it's competitors. Both Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Honda City have a more spacious cabin as well as boot. They also have a more modern design. Where Vento loses out on space and design, it more than makes up for it in the build quality and performance departments. Everything from the bonnet and doors to the switchgear inside feel like they are built to last. My father's Vento has completed nearly five years now and everything is still as good as new, not even any rattles anywhere. That's German engineering. Apart from this it has a quite good diesel engine powering it. With the new larger turbocharger, it now generates 110 PS of power and 250Nm of torque. This engine might be a little unrefined at low revs but it ensures that it puts a smile on your face when you floor the accelerator pedal. It is pretty fuel efficient too. Even in terms of refinement it is better than Honda's 1.5L diesel. The gearbox is also good with short and precise throws. If you're considering getting an automatic then nothing beats VW's DQ200 dual clutch transmission. It is a gem of a gearbox though it has some reliabililty issues which VW claims they have dealt with. Apart from this it is also feature rich. Highest variant gets touchscreen infotainment system with mirror link, auto HVAC, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, Cruise Control, Rain Sensing Vipers, Auto-dimmimg inside rear view mirror, cooled glove box, rear AC vents, dual front airbags, ABS etc. If you're considering buying the Vento, I would suggest you to wait as a new variant with LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights is in the works. It is expected in the first quarter of 2017. You should also take a look at Skoda Rapid. Being a sister car it has all the things mentioned above at a lower price point. Skoda is also working hard to improve it's after sales service.
Old-school automatics were not very appealing to drive as they sucked huge power, and were pretty expensive. With the change in time, today, advances in technology let to the invention of newer automatics for the suitable market and road that allows you to have a much happier ride. Now CVT and twin-clutch-equipped automatics are extremely efficient too. Honda’s brand new City automatic is more efficient than the manual, as the saying goes. Equipped with an all-new CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the new automatic City gets an ARAI-certified fuel-efficiency rating of 18.0kpl as against 17.8 for the manual. Volkswagen’s new twin-clutch automatic Vento is powered by its new, downsized 1.2 TSI direct-injection, turbo-petrol motor. Design: Honda City: ,The exterior design of the new ,Honda City, 2017 is much advanced and energetic. The new City is sporty, with a new signature front chrome grille that connects the two headlights, thereby increasing its premium appeal. The LED package, including the integrated LED DRL, the inline LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, LED license plate lamps, allows the new Honda City 2017 an exclusive design. The new Honda City 2017 will also have new enhanced diamond-cut and two-tone alloy wheel design for both 15 and 16 inch wheels leaving the car to look classy and plush at the same time. The car comes with inline cylinders. It allows a seating capacity for five people and a boot space of litres. Vento: ,Volkswagen Vento comes with new front grille, alloy wheels and chrome lining on the boot lid, exhaust lid and the door handles too. The new Vento has made some minor changes to its look. This includes integrated LED turn indicators, more powerful front fog lamps with cornering lights. It also offers cruise control and cooled glove box. All that enhances the beauty of the car. Volkswagen’s new twin-clutch automatic Vento is powered by its new, downsized 1.2 TSI direct-injection, turbo-petrol motor. Features: Honda City: ,The interior design of the new Honda City 2017 includes several new features that includes an advanced 17.7 cm touch screen infotainment system, called the Digipad. The comes with Anti- lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake- force Distribution ( EBD). The all-new advanced infotainment system has features like the satellite-linked navigation to make navigation much cooler and user friendly, voice recognition, Bluetooth telephony to allow you take your calls at any hour and any situation without have to actually hold the phone to the ear, audio streaming, 2 USB-in slots, 1.5 GB kmpl internal memory. It also features Wi-Fi support for Internet and Mirror Link support for smart phone connectivity as well. The on-road price for the car is 9.69 lakhs. The City provides a mileage of Vento: ,The new Vento has made few minor changes to its features like electrically foldable ORVMs, integrated LED turn indicators, powerful front fog lamps. It also offers cruise control and cooled glove box. The on-road price for the car is 8.87 lakhs.
I get about 8 km/litre in Bangalore Traffic. When traffic is intense it had fallen to 4 km/litre also. In the highways, I get 14 km/litre. If I drive at 50kmph speed with cruise control, I get 16 km/litre. I consider this a decent mileage considering fact that Vento is heavier (less than Fiat Linea), Safe and Stable than the City, Verna, Yaris, Fiesta, Ciaz.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is one of the best cars in its segment and also in its price range. It lies in the sedan segment and competes with Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento and Nissan Sunny. Some good points about Ciaz: It has the longest wheelbase among the others which means more space inside and hence more comfortable. Highest ground clearance among its competitors. It has highest space in the boot i.e., 510L boot space. As claimed by ARAI, it can give 19 kmpl which is the most among its competitors. It has rear AC vents. It also has rear parking sensors with reverse camera. It has rear window blind which is missed by the City, Verna and the Vento. It has 6 speakers and also supports voice commands. Some points which makes us not to buy Ciaz: In instrumentation, it doesn’t have dynamic gear shift indicator as in Verna. It missed LED tail lamps which are present in City and Verna. It has conventional tail lamps. It doesn’t feature rain sensing wipers which are available in City. It lacks the Cruise Control while all of its competitors gets this feature. While the Verna and the City has 6 airbags on their top variants, the top variant of Ciaz gets only 2. It gets a 1.4L petrol and diesel engines while all its competitors gets 1.6L petrol engines as well diesel engines. These are some points which I found useful sharing here. Now, my personal view is that MS cars aren’t made for high speeds or luxurious drives. MS cars are usually gentle looking and gives more importance to the economy. So, they provide a little less powered engine under the hood. Coming to the build quality, we all know that it is not the best. But the coming facelift of Ciaz may get a better build quality than its predecessor. Yes, it is not that safe as you expect from a car. Also you can enjoy on long drives on this car as it is more comfortable when loaded with 5 persons. Getting more than 5 inside will surely make journeys tiring. So, if you wish to buy, you can buy as being a MS car, it needs less maintenance and will be economically good for you. If you want speed, I wouldn’t recommend this. Go for Verna or City. Hope this helps. Thank You!!
Yes, you can own the Ciaz facelift. The main difference is it still houses the Fiat sourced 1.3L DDiS Diesel. It's rivals in the sedan segment all have the 1.5L Diesel variant, from the main competitor Honda City to Volkswagen Vento and also the Skoda Rapid. Neither does it have the diesel- auto combination. Due to the 1.3L turbocharged diesel, it churns out 88BHP of power and 200Nm of torque, near it's rivals. Dimensionally it does not lack behind with 4490mm in length, 1730mm in width and huge 2650mm of wheelbase with 510L of boot- space. It does have on paper mileage of 28kmpl for the diesel variant, and it'll prove to match those figures. Feature wise, Ciaz comes packed with 2- airbags, ABS with EBD, automatic climate control, engine start/stop button, rear AC vents and also cruise control. (Usually, people buying Maruti's tend to stay on the diesel side and also the Ciaz has its following there, hence answered with respect to diesel. Here is also a review about the petrol variant.) The Ciaz houses the K- series 1.5L VVT petrol, with 103BHP power and 138Nm of torque. Acclaimed mileage is near 21kmpl on paper. Dimensionally and feature- wise the car remains the same. But, the petrol variant does have Automatic transmission costing near a lakh more. Ciaz is definitely a great buy.
There are notable number of sedans available in the given price range - Ciaz, City, Verna, Vento, Rapid. But since you mentioned safety, Vento & Verna would come on the top. Volkswagen Vento: Sturdy car built by a German auto giant. Though it is made in India, it was engineered in Germany. The car is super strong with safety features (ABS, Airbags, EBD) as standard and hi tech features like Traction Control, Cruise control on the top models. It’s also a heavy car cz of which fuel efficiency takes a hit and for us indians always used to asking ‘Kitna deti hai?’ Economy becomes an important factor while buying a car. One major aspect is the owning cost of the vehicle, which tends to be a bit high for the Vento. Your usual maintenance/service bills will range in a few thousands, no surprises there. Skoda Rapid and VW Vento are the exact same car with a different logo - few features here and there, Rapid being more feature rich. You may choose depending on which brand service Center is more accessible to you. Hyundai Verna: Hyundai is a Korean brand and Verna is sold internationally. This car is your next bet. Talking about safety, Verna comes with loads of safety features - ABS, EBD, Traction Control, 6 Airbags (industry first) Overall the car also looks more stylish and contemporary than the Vento, which looks more mature and sophisticated. Verna is more comfortable to drive with soft suspension best suited for our city roads with Fuel Economy slightly better than the Vento. Now comes the most difficult part, choosing one! That I leave up to you. Do take an elaborate test drive, sometimes the car’s personality talks to you better than all the features and that’s a car buying done perfectly. Do consider comfort, service accessibility & costs before booking. All the best!
Honda city and Volkswagen Vento both are sedan segment cars. Design of both cars is elegant. Both cars are available in both petrol and diesel variants. It mainly depends on your choice and purpose.

I own Skoda Rapid 1.5 TDI MT 2015 model and my brother owns Honda City Earth Dreams Diesel VX(O) MT 2015 and I have also driven Honda City Petrol Automatic for few hundreds of kms of my friend, which is almost brand new. My decision would be based on the following questions: Would you drive mostly in (b) a high traffic city or (a) on highways? Would you like a Sedan which is more (a) driver oriented or (b) more family/comfort oriented? Would you frequently have more than two people seating in the car?Would you call yourself an enthusiast who (a) loves driving, and more so at high speed or (b) you would like to go from point A to point B, and care more about the comfort. Do you (a) explore a bit to find something interesting or (b) go with tried and tested stuff Would you possibly (a) hold the car for more than 5 years or (b) you are unsure and might move abroad and might have to sell your car even if you were fully satisfied with it? Would you (a) care too much about simplicity and detailed features or (b) not as much, just want something which looks fine If your answers mostly tend towards (a), then go for Skoda Rapid Diesel DSG Automatic. While if your answers are more towards (b), go for Honda City Petrol Automatic. Now going pointwise, Skoda makes extremely well designed, solid, high quality cars known for solid build quality, handling, stability, even at super high speeds that makes it the ideal highway sedan. The Diesel Manual Transmission Variants come with hard clutch which makes it harder to drive in the city, but it is extremely good for highways. Skoda's safety features and intelligently designed features has no match in Honda or Hyundai or Suzuki. However if you would mostly drive in the city and want a Petrol Automatic, go for a Honda City Petrol Automatic. Both offer a good ride quality. Honda's seats are way better than Skoda and so is the rear legroom. Both have awesome suspension, however, I would say, Honda has slightly better suspension for city driving Skoda Rapid Diesel has a more punchy engine compared to both City Diesel as well as Petrol. And it is way more refined than City's Diesel engine. City Diesel has a very noisy Cabin. While you wouldn't feel much of a difference in the crowded city drive, you would greatly feel the difference on highways when City would leave you desiring for more. I drove City Petrol Automatic from Bangalore to Goa and Rapid from Bangalore to Hyderabad, Chennai etc. I can certainly vouch for the punchy engine, handling and high speed stability of the Rapid over City. Even in braking, although both have ABS, Rapid stops faster and in a much more controlled manner. In terms of steering, I would rate Rapid's steering much higher than City: beyond 80kmph, it becomes harder and so even at 145kmph, it feels extremely safe to drive. For Honda City, beyond 120, it didn't give me the same confidence. Honda city is a great family car though. It has every feature that you may want. Esp, the best comfort. The seats are almost equal to Mercedes Benz. Honda City seats have got absolutely no match in the segment, or perhaps even in the next segment. Skodas and VWs don't have as good resale value as Hondas. So buy only if you want to hold it for more than 5 years. My just 3.5 year Diesel Skoda Rapid now (28K KMs driven) has depreciated already by about 55%. My original on road purchase price was 11 lakhs but now I’m getting only 5 lakhs resale value. So it’s just way too bad. Skoda Rapid comes with several really useful features which are not advertised well. The 2017 top end variant comes with Android Auto and Apple Car play, which is completely missing in Honda City's top end variant. Hondas audio system cannot even stand next to Skodas. It's usability sucks. You can control all the windows of Rapid from your key, something which is a hidden feature. The sound quality in Rapid is top notch even with 4 vs 8 speakers of Honda city. Skodas audio system works much better while driving: it's extremely user friendly and easy to operate. The automatic trip meter in Skoda Rapid is extremely thoughtful and we'll designed. The fuel economy measurement in Rapid works much better than City. The automatic gearbox in Rapid Diesel (DSG) is as at par with Honda's CVT, or perhaps better. In Rapid automatic, gears shift much faster, giving you higher power as well as fuel economy. The Bluetooth call handling of Rapids audio system is way better. All the windows in Rapid are one touch and anti-pinch, making it way safer if you have kids(only driver window is one touch in Honda City. No anti-pinch). The fuel tank supply in Rapid gets cut off in the even of crash. Top end variant in Rapid gets rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, rear view camera with sensors. Honda city top end doesn't give you rain sensing wipers or auto headlamps. Although the boot is technically smaller in Rapid, it's design makes it hold lot more luggage than Honda City. We compared and clearly felt the difference. City's boot shape is such that it cannot hold as many suitcases as Rapid. The build quality, the strength of metals used in Rapid is better than City, however both get 5 stars in safety as per ASEAN NCAP Safety ratings. City gives you roomier rear seats, and top variant even gives you Sunroof and six airbags, while Rapid gives you Rain sensing wipers, all one touch, anti-pinch windows (extremely useful if you have a kid), fuel tank supply cutoff in case of crash, can operate all windows with your key. The glovebox, storage spaces in Rapid are much better thought over and useful compared to City. Coming to after sales service, spares, total cost of ownership, I had read lots of bad reviews about Skoda. However, most of it is no longer true. I am running it for 2.5 years, 22,000/- kms. The total amount I have spent is about 18,000/- Rs and obviously I have serviced at regular prescribed intervals and even taken it in between for checkup or top-up voluntarily. The only spare that I needed to replace was Wiper blades apart from the engine oil, fuel filter etc. Update: after 3.5 years, it is demanding to change the clutch plate, pressure plate, release-bearing and flywheel, costing about 40,000/- and all four suspensions for about 30,000/- (including lower arm etc). So really speaking, with time, Rapid and City are almost equal in maintenance cost. On the other hand, my brother, who has run Honda City Diesel 2015 model for about 35,000 km has spent close to 70,000/- RS on service (excluding body repairs). The clutch plate with pressure plate needed complete replacement at 35000 km. In Rapid, if you use it too much in the city, then the clutch becomes much harder with time, making it even harder to use in city Update: I can clearly vouch for the fact that Skoda Rapid maintenance costs and spares cost is much lesser than Honda City. Even body parts in Skoda Rapid cost less than half of Honda City. I compare this, because both mine and my brother’s car met with accident: hit by truck from the left. The extent of impact was much higher in mine, but the damage in Honda City was much higher. Front bumper in Rapid costs about 5–8K, but in Honda City, 15–18K. The rear fender in Rapid cost less than 20K, but in Honda City, it costs 35K. Same with mirrors. I go to Tafe Access, Bangalore for service and so far my experience has been quite good. However, Skoda has lesser number of Service stations when compared to Honda. And the reason is simple: Honda has lot more cheaper cars and it sells lot more. For Skoda, Rapid is currently the cheapest car. However, the capacity of the service stations is lot higher in Skoda I would say at last, do the test drive, explore and pick up. Both cars are good. Update: since April 2019 I moved to Volkswagen Vento Highline TDI AT (DSG) (bought a pre-owned 2015 model) I needed an automatic as Skoda Rapid TDI clutch had become too hard in just 4 years. my leg used to pain to drive it in Bangalore traffic. In my my view, it was the best decision. Everything remained the same as Rapid (yes, Rapid & Vento are cousins: almost same cars: almost all parts are same except exterior body parts) except that I got the comfort of Automatic. It additionally got Cruise Control (Rapid was mid variant, Vento is top variant), softer suspension compared to Rapid, better seats, better resale value, more service centers (though costlier), and overall better service.
