Dear Sampath,
First and foremost, how much will you drive the car. If it is less than 1000 Kms per month on an average, go in for the diesel, else go for the petrol.
Secondly, as far as value for Money is concerned, from teh above, the Ford Figo is the best among the three. Dont go in for the micra as the service is still suspect. As far as service goes, the Maruti still comes out tops. Ford is in between.
In between the ford and the Maruti, now please specify your exact requirements. If you want mileage over comfort, space, safety, then go in for the Maruti, else its the Ford all the way.

Answer by Gurutej 12 December 2010

with budget of 5lakh,petrol engine and good space,
difficult to answer but i think overall ford figo be best among all.
though you might have to compromise with initial mileage, but it gives 13kmpl in city with ac and is totally under your budget.
or try hyundai i20 , its awesome you can buy magna model and 5 persons can easily sit.
though the car is big like sedan but it doesn't compromise in space.
don't go for micra as low service network, wagon R can't accommodate 5 persons
rest is your wish
