If i was a family man, i'd pic the Petra. But for now, the Baleno. Hypothetically speaking thats is.

In reality though, i already have the C segment car of my dreams. Lol

Oh yeah, Baleno vs Petra, that would be a nice race to watch. But getting back to the topic, the NHC is surely a much more overall car than any other C segmenter.

It's atleast good, if not a great performer. But yeah, you'll find your self saying "My other car happens to be a NHC".

It's not the kinda car you would want to spend time admiring.

In stock form though, the Baleno has a disadvantage as it comes with skinny tyres, that would make braking and going around corners a bit hard to come by.

But at the same time, the Baleno is relatively much lighter, so you never know.

Tell you what, i have this cartest software read more on cartest 4.5 (Amazing car test software........) Using this, we can get a Hypothetical idea of how these cars might perform.

checking out that site dude ...
fasbond i dunno how to break this to u but baleno has more pp100then the palio which indirectly means more pp100 then the petra ...
and the baleno does not come with the eps system only the wagonR, zen , alto
and shantunu i agree with u there ...
the NHC is not car bout which u can boast about proudly because of its lack of performance maybe to a famiuly man ...

Well, just to keep everyone informed. I did two more test rides of Petra. It's real solid car. Step on the gas and the rev counter starts shooting furiously. I do not see much difference in the Petra and Baleno acceleration. As per ACI, both are almost equally quick. But mind you, Baleno comes with pathetic thin tyres, which improves performance/FE marginally. Put broader tyres and then it will be fun to watch the drag race.

Naah, I will still stick with Petra ;-) One thing I hate about Petra is pathetic interiors. I need to get them all redone :(
