Expert`s comment:

With the budget range mentioned Hyundai i20 would be the best selection for its overall features and style including performance.Recommended to go for the same.

hi amit.. have a look at the skoda fabia nice hatch back and comfortable too. as u know skoda fame for luxury. also try honda jazz or wait for vw polo....

Answer by Arjun 02 February 2010

i20 is the best option for you. if possible buy the top end.
Polo is worth waiting, but for that you will need to wait for atleast 5months, as it willl be launched in Apl and then you should wait for 3months to get market feedback correction. Also Figo is a good option.

Hi Amit
I will reco u shd go for maruti swift which is being relaunched with latest K 12 engine and BS IV emission norms.This abs suits ur need

Answer by Amit Sharma 02 February 2010

well recently i also did lot of research and zeroed in to i20.
Jazz: No doubt wonderfull car but too costly to afford.
Swift: don't like like the toad shape and also windows look like train window. If look doesn't matter go for this.
Skoda Fabia: Again a wonderfull car bit costly excellent to drive. But be carefull bangalore has got a horrific service center. If you are planning in HYD its fine. Please review service.
Punto : again a VFM. But the lacks Air bags in Emotion which is around 6.2 onroad in BLR.
I20: 6.7 in BLR excellent look with a lot of safety features. Its a very good looking car. Even the rear seat has ample space when compared to punto. If you are planning to go in for Race this is not suggested. The gear handling , power steering, interiors, rear space, safety features are better than punto emotion. But punto has a great suspension and another advantage you can drive at 10kmph even in 3rd gear which is great for city driving. but mind it gear handling is just like feather touch in I20. Its bit hard in Punto.

Had punto emotion would have been priced bit more but with air bags i would have gone for it. The emotion and the emotion pack have a difference of around 80k.
I would suggest you to go in for test drive for punto emotion and i20 couple of times and then decide .
