Q. Which car is best Baleno or Elite i20?
  • Friend I'm not agree with you. I am using i20 for two and half years and I drive approx 50 kms daily on almost all types of roads in city, highways as well as rural areas. This car is awesome in terms of quality, stable handling, safety etc. One day I've seen two guys sitting on my bonnet and no dent took place. Many more times I have witnessed the robust built quality of this car. The only downside is lower mileage in city driving (about 10-13). But on highway it is ok and gives approx 16-18 kmpl. The car is very comfortable. The engine runs butter smooth and absolutely silent like electric motor. Many times I've driven continuously for more than 6 hrs without any discomfort. I haven't used Maruti baleno but I'm quite satisfied with the silent and butter smooth performance of i20. This car is definitely a fantastic, highly admirable and premium quality machine.
  • 1. Baleno is way better at handling and economy, whereas i20 is better at pickup. 2. i20 as any other Hyundai other than Verna has a stubborn steering wheel, also due to the lack of dynamics i20 tends to leave the road more than often.3. Baleno is a premium car in the segment with best boot space, refined engine, better mileage, non-comparable ownership costs (i20 has worse service costs). MSIL has managed to overcome the Hyundai benefit by offering a host of features in their NEXA segmented cars.4. Baleno has better safety options with its technology.5. Baleno is an exceptionally well designed, feature-rich car. For the utmost level of safety, go for S-Cross.*****Flaunt your Baleno blind-folded.
  • At some points you are wrong... I agree Baleno gives you the better performance and acceleration... But i20 on the other hand gives you more features than Baleno... Gives you better build quality than Baleno, gives you more good feel and touch of material... Even i20 has a better road presence...i20 has better safety options and has better breaking than its rivals... It's infotainment system is more sleek and smooth than Baleno... i20 engine is more refined and silent ... But in terms of better performance, mileage and acceleration definetly Baleno tooks a lead here... Now if you are still confused which one to buy then go for tata altroz... :)

Q. Most probably I am going to type a awkward question, but I am in a confused mind that which car to buy. My main problem is that my wife and daughter feel uneasy inside of a car when the AC is on, but when the interiors are bigger they feel OK. My budget is 6 to 7 lakh. I shortlisted 3 cars, Swift, i20 and Baleno. The car will be self driven. Comfort, good ride quality, music are our priorities. So which car to buy and which variant?
  • If comfort, good ride quality are your primary factors then definetly go for i20... i20 is a good package containing better features, ride quality, comfort... It's touch and feel is absolutely Fabulous than its rivals... You'll definitely feel that you are in a safe car in i20 than baleno... Baleno tooks a lead in terms of performance and acceleration... i20 has a decent handling but it won't give you much confidence when you reach high speeds like 110 or 120 kmph... You can consider tata altroz too... Tata altroz is also a fantastic car... Its build quality is best in segment... 5 star rating by global NCAP.... Altroz also has good quality seats than both baleno and i20... But but but altroz lacks behind the space... It doesn't gives you much legroom and recline angle as other of its rivals give...
  • From personal experience and with a family of four I would say i20 as it delivers on the usability and street presence. It's refined and has better handling too. As good as they come and is certainly worth buying. Performance-wise it takes time to get pick up in 2nd gear, it will easily go 60-100 km without any extra efforts very smoothly. Maintenance comes around 5-7K with a service interval of 10000 km.I remember financing for it in 2015 through HDFC Bank which was a hassle-free process of getting approved for my car loan. Visited the car dealership on the same day to pay the margin money and signed a loan agreement leaflet and my car was invoiced on the same day. It's been almost 5 years now and I appreciate they offered the best of the market rate. Overall Elite i20 was worth buying.
  • All cars you have shortlisted have their own pros and cons but I would prefer you the elite I 20 as it has dual combination dashbord which dose don make you feel Clusterforbic it has good music system comfort is best in the segment ride quality is absolutely phenomenal no matter how bad roads are you won't get disturbed by any potholes and pathes all in all go for elite i 20

    Our first preference was to buy Ford figo but the varriant we wanted ford couldn't deliver so we choosed Elite i20 petrol and after 2 years I think it was best decision. We had a little less budget so we purchased the era varriant that is very rare and difficult to get. We bought it in 2017 november. I am driving the car for 2 years. Done about 9000 kilometers. The only one thing to sacrifice about it is the milage. I am a light footed driver. Always shift to 5 th gear in 60kmph and very ocassionally go over 100kmph. I get milage about 9-10 in town with ac and 13-15 in highway. But for its very good built quality and comfort I never mind for it. And one more thing I am talking about 2017 model. One of my friend bought 2018 model he is getting 11 in town and 16-17 in highway. For the people who prefers cars which give peace of mind while driving prefers a car which is very easy and efortless to drive i20 is one of the best 5 seaters under 10 lakhs for them. Talking about maintanance, Out of 3 service 2 service is the major oil change service which I had to pay the for consumables and for wheel balancing and allignment. In 1st year oil change service I paid 1950 including engine oil oil filter and wheel balancing. In 2nd year service I paid about 2850 including Engine oil, Oil filter, Air filter, Wheel Balancing and Wheel allignment. According to my idea its very reasonable. For my experience in 2 years If someone looking for a family car for driving 3-4 days in a week and 500-600 km in a month and go for long rides ocassionally then i20 is best hatchback for them. Backseat space is also great so 5 adults can seat in the car for long rides.

    The Car is literally good for those who are going to buy there first car as its a hassle free car, for new people they don't have knowledge that what happens when you buy a car and find noisy cabins and less styling feature & safety features inside a car. although i will say Hyundai never claimed good averages in any of there Petrol car but if you want a Mileage machine i will say its better to skip Petrol and get the Diesel or go for Maruti Suzuki as they are famous for making mileage machine cars.i almost get a 18-22kmpl in highways or on long routes if you drive like 70-80kmph then you can get easily 17-18kmpl. In City well i live in a small city so on average if i drive 5-15km then i would get 10-12kmpl at maximum. if you extend it to like 30kmpl there is a chance you can get 15kmpl at maximum depends how gentle you drive your car.if you drive like 50-70kmph then definitely you will get more then 19 and even can go upto 22kmpl but trust me that would take your time, and if time is not your priority in that case you can really achieve good mileage.

    Elite i20 is a decent package by hyundai.It provides better styling, Features and road presence than its other rivals.But if you are a car enthusiast who loves acceleration, Then this car is not for you.You can try its turbo petrol but still not up to its mark.Its build quality is fabulous.No crinkle sound from the panels even after many years.Touch and feel of interior is definitely up to its mark, Gives you a feeling of luxury.Handling is decent.But at high speeds like 100 or above.It definitely don't give you the confidence.Seats are comfortable.But you sit a bit lower comparing to its rivals.Breaking is also good.Better safety options.You'll feel it's 1.2l kappa petrol engine underpowered sometimes.You need to downshift the gears for overtaking.So, If you are a smooth driver and for whom powerful performance is not primary, Then this car is for you.

    I am a bit disappointed while comparing this version of i20 with my previously owned 2009 model i20. Its seems that the internal space has somehow been compromised, ride quality has gone down. However places where this car puts a smile on my face is - 1. Styling - it definitely is a gorgeous piece of art. 2. The keen eye to features which really matters - speed sensing door locks, automatic head lamps, rear camera with guidelines, door ajar warning.. just to name a few. 3. Right Sizing - the vehicle is nor too crammed up neither too spacious (compared to its older sibling) and thus fits into quite a number of tough parking spots in the city. 4. The aftersales service - not sure if hyundai solves all your problem or not but does sincerely listens. You can count on one fact, they will value your time.

    I have been driving this car from 5 years really had a very good experience with this car evn I have taken this car to the mountains tosh Manali loved it to ride evn there. Very comfortable on long drives too It gives you a smooth ride where ever you take this car The draw back is the rear sitting space for long drives I could recommend only 2 persons at the rear if you want to enjoy your journey second thing that sucks is the mileage with the petrol version it delivers only 12 km in the city and 14 -15 on the high way About safety I had 2 Major accident with this car but still we were safe Notting happened due too it's build quality thank God I was not driving a maruti car . In terms off saftey this car will never let you happen any thing

We were all praise for Maruti’s new premium hatchback after the first drive. But can the Baleno unseat the best-selling Elite i20 from its lofty perch in the premium hatchback segment?
