  • Q. I have a budget of 14 lakh and family of 2 adults with 2 kids less then 10 years age. I shortlisted BRV and Creta but then i found disadvantages of both. So now trying to move to Sedan segment. We are heavy build family of 4 ( Healthy punjabis type height and body of avg 90 kgs and 6 feet ). I am only looking for automatic and 70% city drive and 30% high way drive. BRV CVT - Not selling like hot cake - Less premium more practical, extremely spacious. Side profile looks like mobilio and a little stretched from side but 7 seater I will get every feature if i spend 15 lakhs including touch screen and parking sensors seat covers and additional accessories . Nothings special inside the car though. Creta - Loaded with features - Automatic costing 16 lakh which is high - Petrol average is less then 10 in city & high on maintenance. Honda city - Low on average around 11 -12 in city & costing around 14 lakhs for CVT. Verna - Low in average for AT costing around 13 lakh. Ciaz - I heard that low ground clearance means lower body can touch the ground on bumps during fully loaded? Good on fuel efficiency and maintenance as well as features. But AT has 4 speed transmission. As I drive around 35 km daily mostly from home to office and office to home. Also length , width and turning radius is same so nothing to do with big car and small car. My gut says BRV but people says it will get discontinued due to poor sales like mobilio and you may not get good service, parts availability or no resale value as well. Hardly 500 cars gets sold every month across India. So looking at all this now I am kind of confused that should i go for Verna / Ciaz which are most selling? Where should I put my finger on based on my requirements. Marazzo and Ertiga are discarded and also cars like S-Cross / ford ecosports / breeza / wrv / amaze may be too small for us specially second row only two+ child can fit.

    Brv is a narrow car but creta isnt as comfortable as brv because of its position of pillars so both can only seat 3 comfortably and brv has a better handling than creta better performance and even if it gets discontinued you won't have problems with the parts because they all share the same parts and brv petrol does 0-100 in 10.3 seconds and creta petrol in 11.5 and brv automatic does in 11.2 seconds creta automatic does in 12 seconds and brv does have less features but if you spend extra money you would have enough features and would still costs less than creta, I own a petrol manual brv and I have averaged 16.5 kml on highway l while averaging 100kmh while creta did 10 in city andand 12 on highway, I am 6 ft 2inc and I get plenty of headroom and legroom is like plenty of and even you need more you can recline the second row seats and move the seats backwards for more legroom and you can sleep while being driven ride is so stable even at 150+ and comfortable enough at decent speed, but if you want creta go for Verna instead better option similar engine little less Honda city is a good car but only for performance enthusiasts qualify in brv is yes bad compared to creta but more than decent to live with, i might sound like Honda salesman but this car really impressed me a lot more than creta, vreta isn't a bad car but when you compare it with brv, they both are In. Different league, have done 1800 km from hyd to ooty in just one day with 8 passengers with my cousins and still averaged 15.9 kml and never it felt underpowered even though it was loaded was averaging 120+ without any fuss. And even brv cvt gets a paddle shifters, any ways it's upto you I have had both this cars creta and brv but creta was always a small car for me because it wasn't enough spacious for me and my family and diesel engine was good but the steering and handling was so bad I never crossed 120km in creta, brv's stability inspires so much confidence to drive and take aggressive corners though I don't recommend it but the petrol engine is so much fun and cvt might dissapoint you because cvt doesn't do the justice to the 1. 5 litre vtec engine but it's the best in the segment automatic better tha than jerky AMT of creta , brv cvt is smooth and you do have paddle shifters but if Suvs are too big for you Tata nexon and ford ecosport both are best options you can't go wrong with either of them and city ciaz and Verna I would say Verna, but for more mileage and ease of service ciaz 2018 facelift hybrid is also a good option.

    No I haven't noticed any rattling noise with the half windows down or full and I can assure you that because I have done partial off roading in that car and no rattling noise and it's not made of cheap material even though it's not as premium or rich like creta or city but I have driven Renault duster and captur and I can assure you both have worst materials than brv, if I say only worst point of the car is the lack of premiumness but it's a pretty capable car

    Definitely brv lacks premiumness even compared to city but if your really looking for premiumness and comfort instead of practicality I would suggest Hyundai Verna which is more premium and more comfortable city has the. Most comfortable seats but ride is stiff in city whereas Verna is comfortable, but if your looking for big cars and do plan on going for family trips then brv is a best choice yes lacks premiumness but is more capable than creta.

    I also heard that BRV is made up of very cheapo material and even if you drive like half window open it will rattle ? all these are true or not ? As you own this vehicle i can ask you about its brutally honest experience. What are you pain points if you can describe with this vehicle and what do you think you like the most after spending 15 lakh rupees.

    Thanks both of you. .But do you think BRV lacks with premium ness what Honda CIty has ? if some one has not primary requirement of 7 seats then do you think its still benefit over City ? I am confused between sedan and BRV because of same cost and same kind of engine but one offer more premium and resale and other score over space.

    Brv is very narrow in width which wont be sufficient if you are healthy and tall. Long drives are not the best for heighted guys because i am also 6ft. Due to narrow seats. I suggest Creta base model and do all the modifications like top end outside within 2 lacs, which will cost you under 14 lacs roughly.

    Never go for Hyundai vehicles particularly luxury segment , for small cars Hyundai is ok. I had very bad experience with Verna. I will suggest brv
