Off topic, but I guess you should stick to automatics considering the bangalore traffic. May restrict your options but your knees will thank you.

I agree with Tapish, you should pick an automatic. Suzuki DZire diesel AT perhaps?

If you are planning to pick up Dzire AT I would suggest Ameo TDi DSG

It's tempting, but hearing the pathetic service of VW group, I feel jitterish about going to VW.

IMHO yes!! It does make sense.
I'll summarize my points as per below :-
1.Brezza is clearly atleast one segment higher than the Baleno.
2. Additional 13BHP , 10nm torque and 200 KG weight over Baleno. Baleno is said to be bothered by the crosswinds on highways due to its low weight.
3. GC~200mm while Baleno has 170 mm.
4. On road presence.
5. Torque available straight from 1750RPM.

The above points are as per my opinion which is again based on the following factors:-

1. I have been driving four wheelers since last 14-15 years.
2. I am in my late twenties so I seek more road trips.
3. I am confidant enough to drive the Brezza in city traffic and retain it without any scratches.
4. I am tall(6'2") so the ingress/outgress is also a deciding factor.
5. I am currently driving a sedan so going for a hatch will be a downgrade.

You will have to get your priorities as well as driving habits aligned to make an optimum choice.

Cheers.

Considering your budget and requirement, you may also look for pre owned breeza.

If you can look past these 2 cars and want an AT option, I would suggest looking at the

1.Ignis - Yes it is a smaller car than Baleno but as you said it will be only 2 people mostly and it offers a higher driving position than most hatches and sedans. You could buy a Delta/Zeta variant with the Diesel AMT in your budget.

2. The Dzire- suggesting only if you want more space

But these options only if you want an AT, and if you are planning to drive over 2k kms a month in a city like bangalore, I would definitely recommend an AT.

Thanks for the detailed info. Point 3 in your experience is interesting. Is it difficult to drive Brezza in traffic? Specs wise, it's almost similar to Baleno except for the height and GC.

Already discussed and family is not comfortable with used Car. They say, you buy once in a decade or so, nothing beats the new car smell and feeling

I considered this before, but the design is not for everyone's liking.

I think krishnadevanur made it clear that he has only 2 cars to consider and him being a Team bhpian, it would be safe to assume that he had already done enough research before arriving on the last 2 cars. We should not confuse him further by suggesting other Make/Models.

This is again, just an opinion, without any intention to question/hurt fellow members' suggestion/feelings.

Love cars, Live cars.
Peace.

Actually its a bit wider(45mm) than the Baleno.However, It makes a difference in B2B traffic and apartments with stilt parking. And the turning radius is also 5.2 mtr (.3 mtr more than Baleno)

Thanks. Here I thought I will be able to judge the turnings better because of good visibility compared to Baleno.
