Dear friend, They are many cars below 13 lakhs from a hot hacth Volkswagen polo gt to status mark sedan skoda rapid and even cute sub four meter suv Ford EcoSport. Because you haven't specified whether you want a sedan or hatchback or an suv. I will try to select the best from all the three segments.. Starting from small, since you want below 13 lakhs which is a huge amount you can try premium hatches like Volkswagen polo gt if you are an enthusiastic driver,but maintening a polo is a bit difficult because of poor service network in India. My advice to you is please enquire about Volkswagen dealer at your place about his relation and behaviour with customers.. Next is compact suv segment : You can go for Ford EcoSport as you will get a high end model for 11.5 lakhs. It has excellent features like ford safety assist system, and 6 airbags, but ford's light steering wheel doesn't bring smile on many enthusiastic drivers..wait for an update of new ford ecosport 2017..One more negative of ecosport is you may feel the interiors boring and you can feel the dashboard is made up of cheap quality plastic.If you don't like these points you can try Hyundai creta. Medium size sedans : Honda city petrol.. Segment leader for its reliability. Hyundai verna.. powerful 1.6lit engine and vast service network. Maruti suzuki ciaz.. Hassle free service, great mileage around 27kmpl for diesel, lower maintenance costs. Volkswagen vento..Driving dynamics,comfort, safety rated 5/5 by ncap, looks, to stand out of Marutis and Hyundais. But high maintenance costs and poor service network in india. Skoda Rapid.. Excellent comfort, status symbol, interiors built with top notch quality plastic, Driving dynamics similar to volkswagen, powerful engine.But skoda's scary customer service in india and poor resale value. Thank you Have a safe and happy drive…
Hello, talking straight forward, in our India there can be accidents in a fraction of second as road quality and sign boards are lacking in few states. India has most accidents in year ; considering this aspect we need some safer and well built cars with good punchy engines for showing off to our friends and amazing comfor for family trips. This demand can be full filled by only one car of two you mentioned for comparison, and that is Volkswagen Vento. DRIVING QUALITY & ENGINES:- We don’t care for looks of the car because our life is what Matters the most…so the Volkswagon Vento is a car that offers best driving quality and a variety of engines which are awesome and well refined. Also ,Vento has a flat-bottom steering wheel which has both reach and rack adjustments. Verna has a normal power steering with only reach adjustment but Vento comes with electronic speed sensitive steering. Both offer steering mounted controls. On paper Verna has powerful engines but it is the Vento with advantage of TSI & TDI /MPI engines with long lifespan and its engines are quickest through its gears. Vento shares its engines with one of its subsidiaries like Audi too.. now you can imagine its quality. Vento also offers a 7-speed DSG (dual shift gear) box. COMFORT:- So here Verna has a small compact room for passengers and so we don’t get good leg room or shoulder room and so Vento is a spacious car with good comfort especially for passengers at the rear. We feel a lot safe in Vento. Also Verna has higher window line and it gives less amount of outdoor view but Vento is a true German engineering marvel and so it is the true passenger and driver car. Tall people may get congested on Verna. BUILD QUALITY:- Germans have always been reputed for their build quality in cars and so this reputation is well maintained with our Vento which has all the safety features that a driver and passengers need. Verna does not offer much safety. Volkswagen doesn't compromise with safety for attracting customers…though Verna do have 6 airbags but then it's build quality is not quite good ; on the other hand vento needs only 2 airbags because it's build quality is engineering marvel. Vento uses a galvanized Steel body for safety and also has a side and front impact beams. Vento passes crash test with 4.5 stars out of 5 for child safety and 4.0 stars for adults. Whereas verna failed the UK crash test. Both cars have good dashboard quality with the one on Vento having scratch resistant plastic. CENTRAL LOCKING:- Verna has the central locking with remote and key. It also has a anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobiliser. Vento here is quite smart it has a central locking system with remote and key. It has a anti-theft system and an engine immobiliser. It also comes with memory lock function , this works like , as you lock your car with a remote or key and one of the door is open , then locks won’t get engaged, as you shut that door the car remembers that you wanted to lock the car and it will do it automatically. FEATURES,:- Vento might have 1 or 2 features less but verna has some cool features which we don't use very frequently also those features on verna are just for attracting customers to their side with compromising driving quality and build quality (cost-cutting). Both offer electronic interior rear view mirror with auto dimming function. Verna comes with 4 power windows, with 1 semi-automatic window that comes down with one tap but won’t go up. Rest 3 are manual. Vento comes with 4 fully automatic windows (front & rear) with one touch up & down. These 4 windows also have anti-pinch function so that no child or adult is at risk of hand injury. SAFETY:- Many carmakers ignore the strength of the material used to achieve better mileage and performance and ignore the safety aspect of the occupants. India is readying its version of crash test agency called Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP); this should ensure cars built in India is focused on the build quality rather than favourite features such as ABS, EBD or airbags. While these features are indeed safety options that are important too ,but the body or the shell of the cars need to be built of high-quality material as well. The verna does not have much attention to safety department it gets 6 airbags and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution). The car feels uncomfortable when above 100–110 km/hr. The vento offers a ton of safety features like TCS (Traction Control System) ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution) plus they also offer Hill Hold control with Brake assist, also it has a very hard body shell so that passengers are safe inside. Vento also comes with a automatic fuel cut-off system during accident so that no fire takes place. Vento also has anti-roll over body stability. Overall car is sturdy at high speeds. STORAGE:- Verna has a boot of 465 Litres but Vento has slightly bigger one with 496 Litres. Vento has a cooled glovebox which is bigger than Verna. TYRES:- Verna has a R/16 inch alloy wheels with all disc brakes. Vento has a R/15 inch alloy wheels with 2 discs brakes at front and 2 drum brakes at rear. LOOKS:- Verna is hands down an eye-catching car and Vento just fades away in front of verna but its a small compact car from inside not too spacious. FUEL CAPACITY :- Vento : 55 Litres of fuel Verna : 43 Litres of fuel Vento offers 16 KM/L mileage in city & 21 on highway. Verna offers 18 KM/L mileage in city & 23 on highway. DATA AS PER, ,ARAI. 1 BEST THING OF BOTH CARS:- Verna:- It has the best refined engine and you don’t even feel a vibration in the cabin. Vento:- when an accident takes place the sensors in the engine compartment comes to action and it’s engine just settles down and it does not push the cabin and make it squeeze like a sandwich when a front impact takes place. The above picture shows a ,2014 ,Volkswagen Vento was smashed between 2 trucks. The owner of the car said "I was hit by the truck from behind and then with the increased momentum hit the truck in front". This was witnessed in a recent accident in Kerala where German engineering came to the rescue of the occupants of the Vento. Above picture shows how the ,2013 ,Hyundai Verna just squeezed despite of having just a single impact from backside. Hence the built quality is slightly improved for the newer 2018 verna. CONS:- Vento:- Low fuel efficiency Looks Plain interiors High on maintenance Verna:- Build quality not adequate Engine lifespan shorter than Vento Small/compact passenger cabin Window line higher VERDICT:- Choose Verna if you want features ; looks & slightly more airbags Choose Vento if you want safety ; performance ; comfort ; feature and true driving quality. Vento may give less mileage but it won’t be too expensive for your pocket. I suggest you to go for Vento…still you can surf for more reviews here on Quora. “Choose the car that helps you create great memories with”
Looking at the cars that you specified for comparison, I can see only one possible reason that you included the Duster. The price range (although it is higher than the sedans). There is nothing else that can be compared since it’s an SUV while the other three are sedans. That said, here are some inputs on the cars you shortlisted. ,Honda City: Image courtesy: Google. The Brand value:, Honda has always been known for its high quality of engines. Be it the i-VTEC or the newly launched i-DTEC diesel motor, it has always been engines that had the driver’s raw appeal. High revving, a linear power delivery & a peppy nature have defined Honda’s engines. To back it up is the Japanese carmaker’s engineers. ,The Car:, Honda cars have set a benchmark when it comes to the overall car in a given segment. The City is no exception. Having held the crown for the best mid-sizer for years, its position was intermittently challenged by the revamped Hyundai Verna. The Fluidic Verna as it is best known. However, this changed when the next gen City was launched a few months ago, especially since it now had a diesel motor. It set the charts flying when it came to raw numbers. 7216 to be precise for the month of May, 2014 as compared to the 3,334 of the Verna!! Pros:, Peppy engine. Benchmark in its segment. Refined & Efficient motors. Class leading rear legroom. , ,Cons:, Diesel motor is noisy. Not as refined as that of the Vento’s. Spares & services are costly as compared to the Verna., Skinny tyres. Loses out on confidence when in cornering especially in the monsoon season. ,Hyundai Verna: Image Courtesy: Google. The Brand Value:, No surprises here. Hyundai has become the second largest car manufacturer of India. It has dethroned the home grown Mahindra & Mahindra as well as TATA Motors to acquire the second spot after Maruti Suzuki India. Great customer service, good after sales value & availability of spares has helped it gain strong market in India. The South Korean car maker is also known for making cars that have endless equipment list & are best bang for the buck. ,The Car:, It was the only car that took away the game away from segment leader Honda City. The Fluidic style is crisp, sharp & has a ‘nature inspired’ design, as the company claims, has been well received all over the world. The built quality is at par with most cars but where it trumps is the features that it comes bundled with. Some are segment first, some feel upmarket while others were never imagined in a car of this segment. Add all this with the good service & resale value, it is an obvious choice for most customers. Pros:, Good after sales service. Resale value. Looks stunning from every angle. Big bang for the buck. Endless equipment list. ,Cons:, Engines aren’t as refined as the City’s or the Vento’s. Softer tuned suspensions result in a bumpy ride. Highway stability, thus, becomes a major issue. The car continuously bobs over undulations. The steering is suited for city driving. At high speeds, it doesn’t weigh up considerably resulting in disconnected feel. The Fluidic styling is radical & does not go down well with some. Limited all round visibility due to high dashboard & kinked up rear windows. ,Volkswagen Vento: Image Courtesy: Google. The Brand Value:, Undoubtedly, the best automotive engineering in the world comes from the German car makers. VW is the biggest of them all with owned subsidiaries like Skoda, Lamborghini, Audi etc. These cars have been the marquee of excellence of build quality & refinement ever since. The only drawback is their costly repairs & somewhat poor resale value. ,The Car:, True to its VW credentials, it is solidly built, has a high level of engine refinement & a unique German feel to it. It has comparatively bland interiors & less equipment levels but scores high on ride quality. Pros:, German brand value. Best in class engines & transmissions. Solid built quality that is built to last. ,Cons:, ,Subdued styling. Not as good looking as the City or the Verna. Less equipment for a car that's pricy than its rivals. After sales service, spares are costly. Renault Duster: Image Courtesy: Google. The Brand Value:, Renault, the French giant is known for its European car appeal, success in Formula 1 & Motor Sports. It is also famously known for its aggressive pricing that has won accolades all over the world. ,The Car:, It is a full sized SUV, unlike the compact SUVs. Its high ground clearance, low maintenance, acres of space (as compared to the compact SUV Ford EcoSport) & good overall on road- off road capabilities have made it the global best seller for the company. Pros:, Rugged in built. High ground clearance (especially suited for Indian roads) Good off road abilities. Low on maintenance. ,Cons:, Decent level of equipment Interiors are too plain & simple. After sales service is still not up to the mark due to lesser dealer networks. According to a report, the company along with its alliance partner Nissan is planning to set up nearly 200 dealerships all over India by this fiscal. ,Conclusion:, From the above, it’s easy to comprehend that, if you don’t care much about the styling, equipment list but want a more driver focused car that’s built to last & if you are willing to shell out some more (even for the after sales & spares) for the same, the VW Vento is the one for you. If styling, endless equipment list, great after sales service & a great bang for the buck feature as your top priorities, look no further than the Hyundai Verna. It’s beautiful, good all round performer & has better resale value. If you are still unable to decide between the above, there’s a safer bet. Go with the Honda City. Its styling features & especially the high revving engine will bring a smile to your face every time you get behind the wheel. Plus it’s a segment leader! Customers have been using Honda cars & have little to complain. And still, if for some reason,you plan to shun out all these sedans & opt for a SUV rather, there won’t be any problems with the Renault Duster. You’ll be another happy customer with the Renault Duster!
CAR UNDER 7 LAKH WITH BEST INTERIORS There is a serious competition among car manufacturers to tap the Indian car market that is predominantly captured by Maruti Suzuki India. Hatchbacks and more recently crossovers/SUVs have gathered a great interest from the India car buyers. To lure buyers, all car companies have upped their game to have a greater interior quality among other features. I’ve listed some of the major cars below that offer decent interiors. But as a general rule for cars in India, remember the following: (The included sub-sections are the most common factors that affect the buying decision of most car buyers. Hence, rather than focusing on fine details, i've highlighted the key features only) Maruti Suzuki India,: Car price: ,low. Dashboard design: ,old school knobs and buttons, simple design with minimal feature laden dashboard having chrome accents around the AC vents. Overall fit and finish: ,low to moderate. Image: Interiors of the Swift/DZire, ,Source,: Google images, Hyundai Motors India:, Car price: ,low to moderate Dashboard design: ,clean, simple, feature laden and one of the nicest offerings around. Overall fit and finish: ,moderate to good. Image: Interiors of the Grand i10/Xcent, , ,Source,: Google images, Image: Interiors of the Elite i20, ,Source,: Google images, TATA Motors:, Car price: ,low to moderate. Dashboard design: ,plush two-tone dashboard that give the interior an airy feel. Overall fit and finish: ,significantly improved than the previous generation cars, visible especially in the Zest and the Bolt. Image: Interiors of the Zest/Bolt, , Source,: Google images, Volkswagen:, Car price: ,high. Dashboard design: ,bland, boring and seriously dull that looks generations old as compared to the others. Overall fit and finish: ,good, but sadly not good enough to justify the high car price. Image: Interiors of the Polo/Vento, , Source,: Google images, Ford India:, Car price: ,moderate. Dashboard design: ,edgy, angular design and confusing with way too many buttons. Overall fit and finish: ,mediocre. Image: Interiors of the Figo , ,Source,: Google images, Image: Interiors of the Figo Aspire , ,Source,: Google images, Honda:, Car price: ,high. Dashboard design: ,futuristic, offset driver focused interiors, not to everyone’s taste, too basic in features. Overall fit and finish: ,good. Image: Interiors of the Brio/Amaze , ,Source,: Google images, Image: Interiors of the Jazz, ,Source,: Google images, Conclusion:, Amongst the above major cars, the best overall interior is offered by the Hyundai cars (i10 and the Elite i20). The Zest/Bolt and the Jazz come in joint second with both offering a decent quality interior minimum to complain. Ford, VW and Maruti Suzuki then complete the lineup. Additionally, Hyundai cars offer an excellent package apart from just the interior quality, so in any case you cannot go wrong if you decide to chose one! Suggestion:, With the above points in mind, have a test drive in all the cars stated above. What you’ll surely come to appreciate is there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the car interiors. The overall dashboard design, the colour layout, the seat upholstery, the shiny chrome accents, the all round visibility and other such bits and pieces all add up to the complete experience in the car. It can be best experienced only when you get inside one of these. Note: Most of the above cars have a starting price below 7 lakh but their respective higher variants can cost you more. The above response and suggestions are my own and personal opinions may vary. Hope this helps!, ,Happy car buying!
To make it short Vento has more premium overall build quality, City is also quite premium in its segment but vento is a step ahead. Dashboard layout and overall design of city may look more modern but that of vento has more upmarket feel, its a matter of personal prefrence, both are very good. Legroom is more in city, don't know much about boot space but its adequate in both. Diesel engine if vento is better Petrol engine of city is better Vento tsi engine is good, its the same used in polo, it gets dsg gearbox which is sporty so in turn vento petrol AT is sportier, though city may offer better performance, city cvt has boring driving feel when compared to dsg(paddle shifters are fun but it will fancy you for a short period) , anyways it's a fact that manuals are more fun than auto. So Petrol city manual > vento petrol manual. Vento petrol AT> city petrol cvt City doesn't offer diesel auto Maintenance costs of vento are higer, spare parts availability of city is better, city petrol is very reliable, can't say the same about diesel. Resale value of city is better. City with aftermarket lovato cng is overall better than vento with aftermarket cng (doesn't matter much for a new car buyer, but as city petrol is better than diesel some have this idea in mind of cng conversion for lower running costs) Final verdict — City is the better and easier car to own, but its kindof overpriced. Vento feels more upmarket and is priced below city for similarly loaded variants. Experience of boty cars will be the deciding factor. City for petrol and vento for diesel is followed by many buyers. Keep in mind that city has a more hassle-free ownership experience but you pay a premium for it. Vento will cost you less but city has the service advantage.
With here may be a list of ten best sedans in Indian automobile market that falls below Rs 10 lakh. #1 Hyundai Verna Korean automotive maker, Hyundai has been driving Indian car lovers crazy for years. It all started with Hyundai’s ever undefeated hatchback Santro and from that time forrader the numbers kept on growing and still is rising.

**** Do read till end *** ( I was asked to update this on answer) One night around 10 pm, I was coming back from corporate event, in Volkswagen Vento fairly new, 8K KMs on it and less than 1.5 Years old. The low fuel indicator was ON, when I started in the evening itself, and it was now showing, it will go another 35 KMs DTE (distance to empty). I had to get petrol in the car, so I went to this Shell petrol station en route home, and I noticed the price was 83.05, which seemed expensive, so I asked, to which attendant confirmed that Shell petrol is atleast 2 - 3 Rs expensive then others. I did not want to go another petrol pump then, and neither I wanted to pay extra for full tank. so I asked to fill up for 600 Rs. He filled the petrol, I paid by card, he gave me slip and I left. I exited the petrol pump and drove for around 500 mts, and I saw that, the DTE still shows 35 KMs. I was furious that the petrol pump guy cheated me, and seems like he didnt fill anything at all. Now the petrol pump was located on one highway, with dividers and all, If I had to take U turn and come back it would take more time, so I decided to drive in reverse direction, which was absolutely stupid idea in hindsight. I drove for few 100 mts like that, then I took U turn, and started driving on wrong side to go to the petrol station. It did not take more than 10 - 15 mins for me to reach back. By the time I reached, the lights of the petrol pump were turned off, and they had already blocked the entry to the pump, and were starting to block the exit too, it was time to close down. It made sense, that he would cheat at this time since they are closing, so even if someone will come back, they will find it closed by then. I parked my car right in front of the last car, which was filling up, at the same pump I filled the petrol. They asked me to move the car. I said you guys did not fill petrol in my car, I paid 600Rs. The same attendant who filled petrol in my car, asked me calmly to please park in the side, and assured me there is some confusion. I showed them my dashboard fuel warning. How is it possible that car is still showing no change in DTE, and neither did the fuel gauge changed. To which the attendant replied, that sir, sometimes it take time for it to reflect correct status. I told him, that I drove 500 mts and come back, and then I switched off and on multiple times to show him, it was still the same. I showed him the receipt, as in the image above, he said this is credit card statement, it doesnt say which pump and other details, but i was not provided the same. Then the supervisor came, who didnt look much of supervisor, all these attendants were young probably in 21 to 26 age group. The so called supervisor said, he can generate copy of the pump receipt from inside the office, let me get that. Not sure how could i trust some receipt like that. He got me this. Now since the time, and amount exactly matched, so I knew this was correct receipt. I was planning on collecting all evidences to send complaint where ever possible. But the guy insisted that your fuel gauge is faulty, and its not showing correct. I told him, its a new car, and the gauge was working, because when I started in the evening, it was showing over 50 kms, and its reducing since then. He said, “ sir this happens all the time” supervisor said, it happens a lot with Hyundai Accent, one time someone filled full tank, but it did not move at all, and after they started driving, it was ok. I understood, they want me gone. I said I already drove and came back. Then supervisor suggested, we fill the tank again, and you can see for yourself. he filled again 500 Rs worth petrol, atleast as per pump receipt. Still the Fuel Gauge did not budge, and neither the DTE. I just realised what a fool am I, in either case, whether he was cheating and not filling any petrol, or the fuel gauge is faulty, additional petrol was not going to help. May be he didnt fill the petrol this time too. and I am cheated with additional 500 Rs. By the way, the pump itself is open 24/7 but this was shift change time, and thus they closed all the lights and blocked entry and exit. Now all the attendants from the pump, were on my car, it felt intimidating, I sent these images of petrol pump receipt to my wife on whatsapp. Not sure what would happen next. One of the attendant standing at the rear door, listening to all these discussion and stories gave a bang to car’s petrol tank cap, and BINGO the fuel gauge started rising, and DTE started showing some 100 KMs something. Guys there was no scam, we read about so many scams going around, that we get super suspicious, started making our own conspiracy theories. Reason I am posting this under this question, because I want people keep their sanity also intact, dont distrust people too much. Fortunately I did not misbehave with the guys at pump, but the way I was loosing my patience, I could have spoken ill to them too. Finally, before leaving, I apologised to the attendant, he humbly said “sir yeh meters ka bharosa nahi rehta” (Cant trust these gauges). Update — Few days after posting this answer, while it was still not that popular. I got a message from Shell Manager - corporate office, and he asked me the name of employee who was scamming, he would get them fired right away, because this is not acceptable to Shell. I called him, and explained the situation to him. So really quality conscious. Update —- I was asked to mention readers to read till end, in case if they left in middle, they will take-home wrong message about Shell. There are 100’s of comments vouching for Shell, and their quality / standards.
Yes why not, Hyundai is kinda developing day by day, and they said they are mainly targeting people between 30- 40 yrs of age who are entrepreneurs mostly. Speaking about the 2017 Hyundai Verna, it would measure 4385mm in length, 1729mm in width and 1450mm in height, while having a wheelbase of 2580mm. It would be 15mm longer and 29mm wider than the ongoing model, while the wheelbase has been extended by 10mm. The company engineers have worked their heart out on suspension and Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) systems. As for the cabin, the dashboard and seat upholstery would be in dual-tone black and beige theme with a 7-inch Audio/Video/Navigation (AVN) touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, there would be a new instrument cluster, multi-information display, leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic ‘Clean Air’ climate control feature on offer in the sedan. As far as safety is concerned, the Hyundai Verna facelift would boast of dual front airbags and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as standard features, while the range-topping grade SX (O) is expected to feature 6-airbags, including side and curtain airbags. Mechanically, it would be available with the same set of 1.4L and 1.6L petrol and diesel engines with 5-speed manual and 6-speed manual transmissions, respectively. However, as for the automatic variants, the company might replace the 4-speed gearbox with the new 6-speed unit, which is lighter and better performer. The new ,Hyundai Verna mileage, might get a bump if Hyundai opts for the mild hybrid technology. New Hyundai Verna would challenge the likes of Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento in the Indian market. See a teaser of this car. Image source:-Autoportal
Maruti Suzuki CIAZ What you'll like: Clean styling & big footprint. Among the longest & widest sedans from its class Spacious cabin with lots of practical features. Rear legroom is particularly impressive Diesel & petrol, both, have segment-topping ARAI fuel efficiency ratings Soft, compliant ride quality. A suspension that's tuned for comfort Big 510 liter boot will swallow your airport & holiday luggage Maruti’s excellent after-sales service, wide dealer network & fuss-free ownership experience Loaded with equipment (7" touchscreen ICE, navigation system, rear sunshade, leather seats, key-less entry & go, reversing camera etc.) What you won't: 1.3L diesel can't match the performance of the Vento, Verna & Rapid. Has turbo-lag too 1.4L petrol has the lowest power rating in the segment. City i-VTEC & Vento TSI are in a different league Uninvolving to drive. Steering & dynamics aren't to an enthusiast's taste Mediocre under-thigh support of the low rear seat. Also, limited rear headroom for 6 footers Some might find the styling to be too bland. Rear end is uncannily similar to the Honda City Light build quality. Lacks the sheer solidity of its European rivals Honda CITY What you'll like: Practical diesel, fast petrol and convenient CVT. Take your pick Loaded with equipment (sunroof, feather-touch climate control, keyless entry & go, rear air-con, reversing camera) Extremely spacious cabin. Loads of sensible touches make it easy to live with Diesel & Petrol, both, have segment-topping ARAI fuel efficiency ratings Big 510 liter boot will swallow your airport & holiday luggage Light controls, slick gearshift and easy maneuverability for the city. Effortless to drive Honda's reliability & fuss-free ownership experiences What you won't: Same diesel as the Amaze. Outright performance & refinement levels are lower than the Verna, Vento & Rapid Front looks like a mere facelift. Too similar to the outgoing car. Garish chrome grille too Skinny 175 mm tires & boring alloy wheel design. Both need to be upgraded Light build quality. 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) Hyundai VERNA What you'll like: A great looking Hyundai sedan Well-packaged; sufficient room front & back Competent 1.6L power plants, especially torquey diesel. Wide range of engines & transmissions on offer Ride quality & behavior in the city Several segment-first features (reversing camera, keyless entry & go, electric folding mirrors and more) Top notch safety equipment including 6 airbags, ABS + EBD, all wheel disc brakes etc. What you won't: High speed ride quality isn't flat. Suspension, especially on uneven roads, gets wallowy 4 speed Automatic gearboxes. This segment calls for a 5 speed Under-thigh support of the low rear seat not as good as that of competition 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. Balanced ride & handling Segment firsts: Reach adjust steering, gear recommender, adjustable driver armrest etc. 1.5L TDI + 7-Speed DSG has come on offer in the ‘New Vento’. Safety features start from base variants. DSG variants get ESP and Hill-hold function What you won't: Electric power steering. The Vento deserves a pure hydraulic unit Quite a loud & clattery diesel engine Below-average after-sales service & support quality VW's long-term reliability and ownership costs are unknown Fiat LINEA What you'll like: The facelift still looks good compared to the competition, but bring the older Linea into picture, the older one looks far more clutter less and the timeless design stands out. High quality chrome on the exterior. The interiors have been revamped with the dashboard being new and bring in the freshness to the cabin. A couple features have been added on the already feature rich car. The inbuilt navigation and reverse camera would have been icing on the cake All the positives of the earlier Linea are very much present in the facelift. Excellent build quality, the ride quality and handling, steering feedback, superb braking ability are to name a few. The Linea facelift comes with the 1.4 Tjet motor as standard in the petrol engine department The car finally gets 3 bottle holders at the cost of the arm rest space Huge 500 litre boot The reverse parking sensors are standard on the dynamic and emotion variants. The Automatic Climate control is good, but the not as effective as the ones that were available in the Tjet and Tjet+ Variants that were launched in 2010. The AC vents have directional as well flow control now. Placement of the Aux and USB port, it's no longer a trouble to use 3 Year standard warranty with an option of 2 years extended warranty with coverage for 150,000 kms A+ braking capability for the T-Jet. All-round disc brakes a segment first and top level of equipment (including leather seats, Blue & Me, rear air-con and more) What you'll not: The Linea facelift deserved to have the 1.6 MJD under the hood for the diesel segment The interior space packaging not as great the Japanese counterparts. The lesser headroom in the rear for taller people The low speed ride might put off the chauffer driven kind of customers, but they will appreciate the ride when the speeds increase. The arm rest is more or less present just as a requirement as the space is sacrificed for a bottle holder The spare wheel is now a steel wheel and not an alloy wheel unlike the pre 2013 models for emotion variant. Increased weight on the facelift across variants and more so on the top end variant. Niggling issues & irritants (as reported by existing Linea / Punto owners) Below average after-sales service quality Small Dealer and Service Network
