General Motors and its Chinese partner SAIC have revealed a new compact SUV for the Chinese market called the Baojun 510. Looks like direct rival to the Hyundai Creta. GM is not dong very well in India, maybe they should bring this year to take on the Creta and Ecosport. Compact SUVs are a big hit on our shores. The Baojun features a 1.5 litre engine with 111 horsepower mated to a 5 speed manual or six speed auto. What do you think? Should this be launched here to revive GM India's fortunes?
The selection depends on what more is offered in TOP-END versions of hatch as compared to the base varient of a sedan. Some time for some unnecessary feature of Top end varient car makers charges premium which is not worth for the price you are paying.
It also depends on the purpose of the buying vehicle. Some time you are specifically looking for a sedan than even if top end version of hatchback is loaded with features selection will be on base varient of sedan.
If buyer is image conscious than base varient sedan would be the first choice than a top end hatch back.
It depends on personal choice and overall feel at the time of test drive of both hatch and sedan.
Some features in topend versions of hatch such as infotainment , upholstery , safety features, interior trim, colour selection, accesssories , sunroof, etc... are so nice that the base variant sedan looks like skeleton.
