The names of the cars you have mentioned are pretty damn solid in almost every aspect. But each one of them have their plus and minuses. But let me tell you something at the beginning, The Vento and the Rapid are exactly same cars except their badges. Also If you are looking for a mid size premium car you should also see the Honda City. So what I am going to do is tell you how these cars perform on different parameters. Let’s get started, Looks. Although this is very subjective there is no denying the fact that the Verna looks the most vibrant and young. It is really good looking. It has a strong street presence. The Vento is a car which will appeal to the guy who probably works in a MNC, goes to the office well dressed and likes everything in right amounts. He prefers coffee over chai. The Vento was launched a long time ago in India and it still manages to look good even after all these years with minor changes. The Rapid looks more or less the same. Then there is the Ciaz. This car looks very premium but is more of an old man’s car. I think it is like the HM Contessa. The Inside Experience. Now let me get it straight, if you want some proper back seat experience you better be off with the Japanese nibba. It has the best rear seat comfort out there, Massive legroom, rear sun blinds, all this makes you feel quite luxurious. But things are not quite as good at the front yes the materials used are good but there are hard plastics and the design does not feel as good as the Verna’s. Audio quality from the stereo is decent and the touchscreen interface is also smooth. Up next is the Verna. Verna has the best interior design here. It looks really appealing and the quality of the materials is top class. Rear seat wise tho it may not be as comfortable as the Ciaz but definitely is very good on long drives. The sunroof makes things quite airy. Audio quality is phenomenal as it gets one from the Arkamy’s and also gets a 3D surround effect . Punjabi songs sound quite lit in it. The touch screen is also quite nice. Next up the German twins, Vento and Rapid. Both have identical interiors. And they are properly built. They feel solid and built to last. Close the door and it makes the proper thud. Audio quality is quite nice and the infotainment is decent. The design could have been better tho. Driveability and Performance. Straight away here. If you are going for the top model diesel , The Verna is the one. 126 bhp and 260 nms is more than enough to make you smile. 0–100 kmph comes in 10 secs flat. The petrol mill is also quite punchy and makes 123 horses and 153 nms. It does 0–100 kmph in 10.5 secs. The Rapid and the Vento are also really good in terms of performance. If you are looking for the petrol go for the 1.2 which makes 103 horses and 175 nms. The brilliancy here is of the 7 speed DSG auto gearbox. 0–100 kmph in 11 secs flat. The Ciaz here is not that good in diese engines department. It has that 89 hp and 200 nms diesel engines. The 1.5 petrol is quite nice and does 0–100 in 11 secs flat. it makes 103 horses and 138 nms. But if you really want a petrol sedan go for the Honda city hands down. In terms of Handling , the vento is really up there at the top. It feels rock solid even at speeds of upto 185 kmph. Steering is good and it’s an ebjoyable car. Looks like the MNC nibba loves driving!! Ride is also quite nice. The new Korean nibba is also very good at handling in it’s new generation. Steering has a good response and feel to it.The weight of the car keeps it quite planted at high speeds. Also the ride is the best here. Really. The Ciaz has the perfect balance of two. The ride is really very nice but the handling is not all that fun loving. And although its planted, its not as confidence inspiring as the contenders. Effeciencies; Ciaz- petrol-21.5 and diesel 28.00 kmpl Verna - petrol 16 and 1.4- 24 kmpl and 1.6- 23 kmpl Vento- petrol- 15.8 kmpl and diesel-22.14 kmpl Safety. No doubt that the Verna and the Vento are the safest here. Vento being a VW is tank like and the Verna is right up there. The Verna offers 6 airbags in it’s top trim along with a host of other safety features. While all the other cars offer 2 airbags and ABS and EBD. The ciaz here is not that solidly built but its safe . Verdict . Pricing Suzuki Ciaz : 8.20 lacs-11.38 lacs Hyundai Verna; 8.09- 14.03 lacs VW Vento; 8.63- 14.32 lacs Skoda Rapid- 9–14.26 lacs. Suzuki Ciaz; A no nonsense premuim car which is not the best but makes a strong case for itself with bullet proof reliability and after sales service. Low maintenance. Hyundai Verna; Probably the champion here with excellent appeal, strong performance an premium feel. Low Maintenance. VW Vento and Skoda Rapide; A typical German car with a fuss free character. Strong in every area except let down by high maintenance. All these cars are really very good and offer high degrees of sophistication. It really boils down to one’s personal needs on which one to buy. Drive fast, Drive sensibly, Drive Safe. Hope it helps!!!
For a period of 10 year and a budget of around 11 lakhs, you must go for Honda City . Honda cars are highly reliable in long run .I know many friends of mine who have driven it for 2–3 lakh km with regular servicing and necessary clutch plate, break pad , tyre replacements. Talking about diesel or petrol you must go for petrol because first of all Honda's petrol engine is a very trusted one and refined as well and secondly, there are chances that diesel cars may get banned. Talking about model , you must go for V trim which costs around 12 lakhs on road and it has all major features except for sunroof. Not recommending Skoda rapid, Volkswagen VENTO which have extraordinary built quality and performance because the spare parts do cost on higher side and servicing network is not so good either. Not recommending Maruti Ciaz because these are poorly built. My 20 months old , 25000 Km done Ciaz has begun to generate noises from window panes whereas My Skoda Fabia didn't create even a single disturbance till the time I sold it i.e. 1.1 lakh km. You may go for Hyundai Verna as well . I am not having much idea about the reliability of these cars . However, it offers better performance and a bigger engine as well.
Vento is one of the best car in its segment which delivers great performance. The overall performance of vento justifies its pricing but lacks in features provided by other cars of the segment. The new version with an old external design is a bit disappointing. There are many features which it lacks as: Lack of sunroof, projector headlamps, integrated antenna, engine start/stop button, navigation system and rear camera.
The answer to this question is very tough and depends on your need/choice/expectations. You first need to make a choice between a petrol or a diesel variant. This will affect the price a lot in turn the features and should depend on your car's average running each day. Second you need to decide on the features of the car - you want better engine or better interior/exterior features, type of transmission, audio systems, etc. (sunroof, transmission, sports version -hatchbacks) Third - you need to choose the manufacturer: 1. Japanese (Toyota/Honda/Nissan/Suzuki) 2. German (Volkswagen/Skoda) 3. Indian (Tata Motors - Much Cheaper) 4. American (Ford) 5. Hyundai (South Korean) Then you have multiple choices: 1. Sedan (Volkswagen Vento/Nissan Sunny/Honda City/Skoda Rapid/Hyundai Verna/Toyota Etios etc) 2. MUV (Scorpio/Xylo/Ertiga) 3. Compact SUV (Ford Ecosport/Renault Duster) Once all this have been decided it will be easy for you to make a decision. Hope the information helps. Thank you.
Honda City What you'll like: Practical diesel, fast petrol and convenient CVT.

Lacks the sheer solidity of its European rivals Electric steering remains light & sensitive at high speed. No feedback either 6 footers will find rear headroom to be in short supply Some features missing (proper dead pedal, folding rear seat, height-adjustable seatbelts, boot lid cladding) Volkswagen Vento What you'll like: A well-built, robust, European sedan Clean and contemporary styling. Boot is superbly integrated. Stunning diesel engine. Mature suspension setup.

Safety features start from base variants. DSG variants get ESP and Hill-hold function What you won't: Electric power steering.

I’ve owned both The Honda City AT for 7 years and Vento TSI HL Plus with DSG since the last two months. I think I can answer this question with my experience. Here are the points. Reliability. In my 7 years of ownership of Honda City it never I mean NEVER failed to start. Just turn the key and the engine comes to life. Vento is new one for me but the way it sounds and drives it seems pretty solid. I am sure if maintained properly it will turn out to be pretty reliable. Engine. I drove the city for.. well see it yourself, over a period of seven years and it still drove like new. The engine was absolutely silent and No vibrations or sound can be felt at a red light. Pretty powerful and peppy engine of the city. Vento on the other hand has a smaller engine but it is Turbocharged!! Resulting in great power and amazing torque which the city lags. Overall the Vento’s TSI engine Is far more advanced than Honda’s I-VTEC decades old engine. Drive quality. Both cars have entirely different character. City on one hand is a super relaxed car with a feather touch steering. Vento has a speed sensing EPS which makes the steering hard as the speed increases. This increases the control giving confidence to the driver. Ever wondered what will happen if you suddenly turned the steering at high speeds? It would be difficult in a Vento to do so compared to City. Transmission. Vento has the best system, the DSG with lightening fast shifts, and the smoothest shifting experience. The city has CVT which is smooth and relaxed not the best way of transferring power to the wheel in case you want acceleration. The manual mode in DSG is superb and takes only a few milliseconds to complete a shift giving a feel of a sports car. City’s CVT could have been better to use the Engine to full potential. Mileage. Contrary to the beliefs that VW cannot give high mileage, mine give excellent mileage see image…. Owing to a smaller engine of 1.2 L it is frugal in traffic compared to a city which owing to a bigger 1.5 L engine consumes more petrol. (BTW the new Audi A4 has a 1.4 L TSI engine ) Safety: both cars are safe the top spec City has 6 airbags while mine has 4 however its not just airbags which make a car safe. Vento has ESP and Traction control which should have been there kn City as well. Overall Vento is safer than a Honda City. Tyres: Vento has wider tyres than city making it more in control compared to the city. Price: top spec variants of both cars are almost 2 Lakh apart. Vento with all discount schemes is cheaper than a city. But lacks a sunroof and leather seats. Maintainance cost is comparable and is around 1 re per Km. Looks. Vento with its DRL looks beautiful compared to a city whose DRL’s do not shine as bright. City is slightly longer than a Vento due to its long bonnet. Overall if you were to choose between the two, it is a difficult decision to make. Test drive both cars and then make your choice. Update. I took the Vento from DELHI to Chandigarh clocking an average of 18.5 ,kmpl, using 93 octane fuel. It Drove super smooth, max speed I could test was 157 kmph. During return the temperature was 45degrees but the AC made the cabin super cool. No fatigue at all. Overall I’m really pleased to buy the Vento.
Thanks for A2A. I would like to suggest 2 cars. 1. Honda city- a segment leader. very nice Design outside as well as inside. It's diesel engine is more fuel efficient, plenty of features (top end variant gets sunroof ), if u want a proper family sedan then this is the car for u. 2. New Volkswagen vento- germans are known for their solid build quality. The looks of a car is subjective. the best thing is it's 7 speed DSG automatic gearbox. ride & handling is very nice. The performance is much better than city.
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.
I think this is a very valid question, though it’s a comparison between a sedan and a compact SUV which isn’t exactly apple-to-apple. The reason it is valid is because these cars are pretty much similar from a wallet perspective, apart from engines and features. There are many variants of the Vento, Creta and the City that overlap the same budget space. It is difficult to be completely clear on what you want - a sedan or a SUV, because from a value perspective you have two voices telling you contrasting suggestions. There’s one that says ‘You’re spending 14 Lakhs on a car, get the top end of the sedan’ and the other says ‘You’re spending 14 Lakhs on a car, why not get the bigger one and not bother too much about the variant?’. I think here’s where we leave those two voices out, disconnect and think rationally - bring it down to what YOU honestly want from a car. I’m not sure whether you’re looking for a petrol or diesel, but here’s how I’d put it based on some impactful differences between the three vehicles. You love driving If you’re looking for a petrol:, The Honda City takes lead here, mostly because of the 1.5L iVtec engine and a crisp gearbox. The recent update is a good refresh, but if you prefer the ones with a sun-roof, it becomes quite expensive. The VW Vento comes second. It’s got a punchy 1.6L engine giving you 105 HP. The Creta also has a 1.6L engine that giving you 123HP, a little more than the City. But what the Vento gets that the Creta lacks is the ride maturity, it’s got great dynamics that lets you enjoy the drive and not just be comfortable. The Creta works to keep you more comfortable, but may not excite you. ,If you’re looking for a diesel:, The VW Vento gets a 1.5L 108 HP engine, the Creta gets a 1.6L 126 HP engine (some variants get a 1.4L) and the City gets a 1.5L 100 HP engine. The Vento and Creta are equally great when it comes to diesel options. But what would connect with you better as a driving enthusiast is the Vento. The Creta would try to win you over with the looks more though. The Honda City’s diesel has a nice low end torque to it. But, the noise just puts you off. You want a lot of features, ,If you’re looking for a petrol:, The Creta goes wild with the features, but only with the top-end variant. There are only 3 variants for you to pick from - E,E+ and SX+ (atleast as of March 2017). The price difference between the E+ and SX+ is a little difficult to digest. The 2017 City and the Vento try to offer you a host of features. What the City has as an advantage is the sun roof. So this boils down to the variant of your choice. But given the gap in prices between the E+ and SX+ of the Creta, you’re better off slotting the Highline+ variant of the Vento or the ‘V’ variant of the Honda City that fall in between. ,If you’re looking for a diesel:, For starters, the Creta and City give you more variant options than the Vento. But again, the best is reserved for the most expensive variants. The Creta takes the win if you’re looking for a top-end comparison. If not, the Vento and City are mostly on par with impactful features other than the sunroof. You need boot space, Needless to say, the Creta rules it here. The City next and the Vento follows due to very marginal difference. You want an automatic, ,If you’re looking for a petrol:, When it comes to automatics, the Vento gets a 1.2L Turbo charged engine and a 7-speed DSG gearbox. The 1.2L engine provides the same power output as the 1.6L. The DSG gearbox is a driving enthusiast’s delight. The City doesn’t get traditional automatic or AMT, but a CVT - it’s great for commute but I don’t see myself enjoying it on a highway. The Creta gets a 6-speed traditional automatic that, again promises to keep you comfortable but not excite. ,If you’re looking for a diesel:, The Vento steals it here as well. The same 7-speed DSG with the 1.5L diesel, same output and a very exciting drive. The Creta’s diesel is smooth and slick, but again it’s more comfort oriented than enthusiasm oriented. There’s no Honda with a diesel - Automatic transmission combination, ever. You want good fuel economy, ,If you’re looking at either petrol or diesel:, The City, Vento and Creta have similar engines. The Creta is naturally heavier than the Vento or the City and has a higher power figures, so you can expect the Creta to be only marginally lesser efficient than the Vento/City. But there are a lot of factors that govern the fuel economy. I’d imagine each option fetching you between 10–11 kmpl in the city & 13–14 kmpl on the highways if you’re looking at petrol options, 14–15 kmpl in the city & 17–18 kmpl on the highways if you’re looking at diesel options A good resale value after 5 years, ,If you’re looking for a petrol:, The City steals the throne here, mainly because of the iVtec petrol engine. But, a high mileage vehicle need not fetch you good figures. Volkswagen Vento petrols aren’t known for their resale value. And I’d imagine the same about the Hyundai Creta as you can make a direct comparison to the Hyundai Verna with the same engine. This is primarily because the used car market is very sensitive to fuel economy and shy away from any relatively large petrol engine. ,If you’re looking for a diesel:, I’d expect both, Vento and Verna diesels to have a strong resale value. The City however, doesn’t impress the second hand market majorly because of noise. Hope I added some value in sorting out this confusion.
