Honda City: The City continues to be the most desirable sedan in this lot. It’s got the looks, the tech and more importantly - that oh-so-illustrious H badge on the grille. It’s fun to drive and has enough space to shame cars from a segment above. Looking for a big car experience? Dial H for Honda.
Hyundai Verna: Looks suave, is loaded with features you didn’t know of, and most importantly - doesn’t ride like it’s got pogo sticks for wheels. If you can make peace with the limited room at the rear, this is the best Verna
Volkswagen Vento: It’s ageing, but it’s far from being dated. If you’re keen on driving (fast) yourself, the dual-clutch transmission on the Vento will be a more-than-willing partner in crime. It’s got a stiff ride, but the basics of space, practicality and ergonomics have been nailed to the T.
Maruti Ciaz: There’s nothing that makes you go ‘wow’, but it doesn’t let you whine either. Yes, it’s a bit boring to drive and it could do with some more features. But, if you need a no-nonsense car to be chauffeured around in without burning a hole in your pocket, the Ciaz should be in your garage.
Skoda Rapid: There’s not much to dislike about the Skoda sedan. With the facelift, it looks as premium as ever and packs in more tech, too. If you feel the Vento is a bit out of reach, pick the Rapid. It’s practically the same package delivered with a smaller pinch to the wallet. Yes, it’s a tad bit old and it could do with some more features - but that build quality does make up for a lot!Read Less
