Sorry to add to the confusion , but why have you left out i20Magna? Its looking good , classy interiors , good comfort , rear seat a bit cramped though. FE is good enough and IMO looks good too. TD this too! i20 satisfies all your top 5 priorities. The only disadvantage is its high dashboard , so driving it needs a little getting used too!
I did not opt for the following reasons:
- 5.6 Lacs with the Accessories I need is above my budget !!
- Same 1.2L Kappa2 Engine on a heavier car (by 200 kgs approx) makes it a bit sluggish & under-powered (agree it is debatable)
- Didnot find VFM for the Steep Price
