1. Maruti suzuki baleno - delta variant comes with decent features and don't think dad would prefer extra features than this variant.
Priced around 6,50,000 in delhi with a few months waiting.
Mom doesn't like the car because of the light build. Yes even my mother noticed this without me anything saying. Plus the rear suspesnion problem which my gf told me about when she took a td with her brother. Nearest nexa didn't have a td of baleno and I never drove one before.
2. Hyundai elite i20.
Mom loves the car and the interior and was really happy when she sat in her friends car.
But the sports variant is the one I was looking for since it has abs
but it is costing around 730k after discounts. Magna which now doesn't even have the Keyless entry is costing 660k after discounts.
3. Ford Figo Aspire.
After the recent price cut this have become the most vfm
of the lot.
Titanium with all the bells and whistles ( just not the 6 airbags) is costing 630k after discounts. Even though I own the figo hatch I don't mind buying this just because of its price. Whenever I look at the price I just can't think of any other car. Dad likes the figo so he's ok with the aspire.
4. Tata tiago
Superb car for its price. Recommened the same to my gf and the car will be delivered this week for her.
This was first in my list but dad said car's size seems small. This is the only issue so don't think this will be selected.
Cars not considered.
1. Grand i10
Not at all safe plus the top end asta costs 680k after discounts. Aspire titanium -630k.
2. Etios liva - dad doesn't mind the interiors. Drives a lot better than grand i10. V variant costs 640k similar to aspire.
Issue : just the price. Not toyota's fault but aspire looks vfm
3. No vw - (long clutch travel plus expensive spares), Brio ( size plus looks) , no other maruti tin cans, no fiat (long clutch travel although spares cost are much lower than vw)
I am all in for the aspire but would like to hear your views.
