  1. The car looks promising. Maruti has tried to distinguish this from Ertiga. Front facia looks good and adds the surprisingly missing DRL from Ertiga. Car itself looks beefier thanks to cladding all around. Not sure if this would sell in numbers like Ertiga but surely would result an end of road for cars like BRV. Mahindra should also be prepared for a rather soon Marazzo update.
  2. From rear, it looks really bad. Just compare to current car. Current one looks so so so much better than this.
  3. MG has ticked all the right boxes. Price, Features, Panoramic Sunroof, Connected Car Tech, Loads of Chrome (very tastefully done), punchy engines with hybrid and DCT gearbox. One thing missing is enthusiastic driving experience. But how many actually want that in India? Very few. So MG has gone with the trend to provide plush and superior experience rather than for people who love handling while driving
  4. Toyota has played well here. This will create a great image for badge engineering in India. Also Toyota said prices are introductory. Well if you see G AT, V MT and V AT. These variants have identical pricing to Zeta AT, Alpha MT and Alpha AT. These include 1.2 K12B engine. As you mentioned @sachins, G MT is where Toyota has played their trump card. G MT price has really shocked us because it packs K12C Hybrid engine and is 65 K cheaper than Baleno MT K12C Hybrid. (7.22 vs 7.87 lakhs). This is even cheaper than Delta K12C (7.25 lakhs). Kudos to Toyota. So Buy a Baleno (since it has discounts and Toyota says these prices are introductory). Baleno with EW will offer same package as Glanza with Maruti's service network. BUT BUT BUT... If you are buying Baleno Hybrid.... Buy Toyota Glanza. That's my opinion!
  5. Baleno would be a better choice here. I personally seen people having a lot of complains from Hyundai with their i20 and Verna. Else with that kind of budget, you can look for Tata Nexon as well. Petrol XT model should be a good fit.
  6. Really? WagonR vs Brezza? It should have been WagonR vs IGNIS in my opinion. And I would always consider IGNIS as a preffered choice for private vehicle for 3 reasons - 1. WagonR will dominate TAXI segment while NEXA products will never do that 2. IGNIS feels a lot more premium from inside and definitely is more feature loaded. LED Headlamps, DRL's, Aircraft like Automatic AC, Alloys etc. 3. NEXA outlets cater you far far better than ARENA. This is a real life example. Be it showroom or service centre.
  7. Glanza is for people who say Maruti build quality is not upto the mark Jokes aside, Badge engineering hasn’t really worked in India. At least till now. This would be interesting to see as till now both companies who partnered had low sales individually. Here it is the opposite. This is more of a test for Toyota than Maruti as later is a constant 50%+ market share leader. I particularly like the fact that both cars are exactly the same except badging (true badge engineering). This would retain the qualities of the top selling car no matter from where it retails. One would always consider it to be Baleno.
  8. Mahindra has been trying very hard to increase its share (given the fact how TATA made a comeback with Tiago, Nexon and now Harrier). But Mahindra still needs to analyse not to overstyle their cars. XUV 500 was a block buster and post that all other cars were either too blank (TUV) or too overstyled (KUV, Marazzo). Alturas is a great product but given the fact that Endeavour could not dent Fortuner sales, Alturas will be on discounts soon.
  9. Since next gen corolla is already about to debut, I don't think current gen will be on cards under Suzuki Badge
  10. Harrier is a perfect example of job well done! Kudos to TATA Motors. Only thing left is pricing
  11. Yes indeed. Civic has been best car in its segment. It is still loved by enthusiasts. Given new Civic is going to be launched soon, it is surely win a lot of hearts. But given the value proposition then and now, I am sure it is not going to sell in numbers. We all can see how CRV/Accord craze has steeply gown down as the cars have moved segments above they were. There was a time CRV was selling like hot cakes. Sure Honda tries to justifies the price bracket but if Civic is anywhere above 20lakhs, it will be difficult for Honda to sell in numbers (except for first few months like Amaze)
  12. Thanks @rakeshsinha and @neerajd. She has now finally decided to go for Nexon just because of features and high driving position. Although I would still prefer Baleno at this price but she stays away from it. So finally nexon it is
  13. Thanks @sachins Yes, we did consider Baleno right at the start. But she was not in favour of a Suzuki (strangely). And now finally we are going to book either amaze or nexon. i20 is ruled out.
  14. Thanks @sachins. Yes it is mostly for city runs and petrol car only. We went to drive both! Well, she still wants a manual gearbox as her city run has less traffic. Probably Amaze it is but we are still in doubt regarding looks of it. That's why we went on test driving Nexon which has an OKAY drive compared to both. Now that we have a vote for Amaze, i20 is out for now
  15. Hello everyone, I want recommendations as which car is the best buy here? Looks - i20 is a lot better as I simply dislike flat front and rear of amaze Features - Both are on par. i20 just adds 4 extra airbags and projector headlamps Price - i20 asta is cheaper by 40K than Amaze but i20 Asta (o) is costlier by 40K [on road] Drive - Both are equally good and refined. Engine/power/torque almost identical. i20 feels peppier. Please provide feedback. The car is to be driven by my sister. Thanks!
