Hi youth_2bond.

Welcome to Tbhp

Can you tell us folliwng:

- What is your prefernce Performance or mileage? (Beinga Palio owner I am hoping performance)
- How much will the car be running per month?
- How long do you intend to keep the car? (Will it be like the Palio)
- How many people would be travlleing in car most of the time.

Also can you tell us what was +ve & -ve that you found in each of the cars that you tested ?

These questions will allow us to suggest you as per your exact need.

Apart from above, are you inclined to diesel/petrol vehicles.

But if you ask me, I would rate like below (assuming all are petrol driven):

1) SX4 (Zxi).
2) City.
3) Verna.
4) Aveo.

if you are prefering the petrol go for sx4 as it is fully loaded and value for money.its having good mileage second to city.but size wise and feature wise sx4 is far ahead of city .cost of maintenence is less for an sx4 compared to city/fiesta etc.if you prefer diesel then go for verna for sheer performance.

Ram sir, U r the ideal person Maruti could ever find to put as head of sales dept.
I agree with u sir, SX4 is way ahead of City and Fiesta in case of maintenence.

I know its off topic to say this in here.. but your Verna looks gorgeous with that TBhp stickers in it.

I am a new SX-4 ZXI owner, a month plus, and driven approx 1000 kms. I would strongly recommend the car. It is very comfortable to drive in the Indian road conditions with its high ground clearance. I find the engine / clutch very smooth, almost noiseless. I have just recently checked the mileage quite accurately (tank full to tank full method) and I have got 13.7 kms. This was mainly during highway driving(60 to 90 kms/hour) and about 20 percent city driving, and of course AC used sparingly due to comfortable weather in Delhi this time of year. But against the normally stated 10 to 12 kmpl, I thought that this was pretty good.
Would be glad to answer any specific questions.

ashok you have told it,all sx4 guys are getting anything between 13-15 in my area.and jerry the ride position is a bit diff for sx4 the seat height is a bit more than the usuall sedans,but a nice thought as the car would be preffered by all aged people and as well as guys who have aged people at home -and that means all.due to ease of ingress and egress .valid thought and point.

Saabasheer---

Based on MY criteria, I have rated the cars.

My criteria doesn't include price of the car/VFM concepts.
They are purely technical such as engine,performance,built quality,ride quality,ergonomics etc etc.

Sabaasheer,

I have rated the cars based on MY criterias.
And yes for petrol #3 goes to both Verna and Sx4.

My rating doesn't include price/VFM philosophy.
Its purely technical such as engine,performance,built quality,ride quality,ergonomics etc etc.

Anju,

Have you driven SX4 and Verna - Petrol before? if it is yes your statement is wrong. vice versa......

As per your parameters....

Engine - SX4
Performance - SX4
Built quality - Verna
Ride quality - SX4
Ergonomics - Verna
Handling - SX4

I have driven both and driving...... its my actual findings and rating....
Both cannot be kept in line.....

For a Diesel car, i would strongly suggest the Verna, the performance is Amazing but i felt it is a bit overpriced.

From the Petrol Segment, i would suggest a honda City seconded by the Sx4

pros
honda City - Smooth all over in every aspects, go for anniversary edition, the centrol lock facility is very good
sx4 - fully loaded with facilities equivalent to a luxury car in bigger statement

cons'
honda city - i somehow felt very fragile, even a small touch by other vehicles creates a dent, very low ground clearance, if it is going to be driven with 4-5 passengeres most of the time, will have a problem on our roads with bumps/speed breakers
sx4 - too big, i happened to see a sx4 and safari side by side, and sx4 is about 3/4th the size of a safari and steering is also a bit heavy.

Sabahseer,
If you say Ride quality is good in SX4, then I am surprised that your saying this after you tested both.
To me Ride quality seems biggest draw back of Suzukis right from Swift to SX4.
(Yes I have driven both)

Cheers
