Potentially, it has been rumoured that Kwid 1.0 to be launched in June shall also have both airbags and ABS, but thats for June, and while Kwid's design is striking, I would choose the Maruti 1.0 engine.
I haven't looked at Maruti because their design does not appeal to me. The one that appeal, like Baleno, is over 5 lakh. Moreover there is this impression in me that Maruti products have poor fit and finish. Anyway now I will look at Maruti with more interest. The thing I have noticed about Suzuki is very good engine refinement.

The Kwid looks so rubust. Then I read the review and realised that it is light as feather. All this fixation with "kitne deti hai?" has spoiled the safety aspect of cars available in our country.

I don't want to go for a Tata because (1) engine refinement is poor, and (2) I expect certain level of quality even in low budget products.

At least give them a chance. The new products (starting from the Zest and the Bolt) are actually better than the competition in every way.
I think you won't be disappointed with a Tiago.
If you're open to used cars, you could get a previous generation I-20 with 6 airbags for that price as well.

At your price range, Tata Bolt XE is the best buy. I almost bought one for 4.85L. If looking for better features go for a higher variant. But if you have concerns with resale and service, Alto K10 or eon 1.0L would do. If you want to throw space in to the equation, then Datson go next. Honorable mention is the Nissan Micra active, you will get 2 Airbags, ABS, EBD,BA for 5.8L

Default Reliable hatchback not more than 4 lakh.

Hi,
I'm looking for a hatchback for my bro(as a wedding gift) with max 4 to 4.25 Lakh only. Main criteria is to carry 3 adults and later on addition of a baby.
The hatchback need not be limited to city travel, it should be capable of highways too.
Should be features we are looking is power steering and AC.
Please suggest good reliable hatchbacks with this criteria.

Thanks very much in advance.
