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

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. What is the difference between electric and power steering?
  • There are mainly two types of power steering available - Electric and Hydraulic. The Electric power steering simply uses a electric motor to direct the steering commands made by the driver easily whereas, a Hydraulic power steering uses pumps and piston for the same. The electric power steering is more efficient and works to the point.

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?
