Surprising that they are saying Baleno Sigma is not available. Couple of my relatives who were looking at the same price range of under 6 lakhs, have ended up buying the Sigma.

In that case, Ameo would be my top choice, given the pricing, should also be available quickly too, and the feeling of having brand new model is exquisite.

Grand i10 is a wonderful car, but it only has Driver airbags in Magna, while there are better cars at that price point with more, worth considering.

Not only sigma not being available, long waiting period on baleno is also keeping him away from it.

Wouldn't service and maintenance cost of Ameo cost a bomb? Considering its a VW?

My Polo owning friends tell me the difference is close to 2k when you consider annual service for VW vs half yearly services. The many many Polo ownership threads, would help you out on the same too, since the car is basically a Polo.

3-4 years is a pretty low ownership period for cars these days, and he would suffer a rather large depreciation hit on whatever he may purchase. Its better to buy considering a longer ownership. If your friend has decided that he would be selling the car in 3-4 years, no matter what, financially, it might be worth looking at used car market too.

Grand i10 is a better choice compared to the Swift.
Being a BHPian, please try to educate him about the necessity of ABS and Airbags. If you manage to convince him, he'll educate more people and raise awareness.


Since he is not too concerned about FTD factor, the Figo with it's weak petrol engine (only relatively) would be a best choice considering it's got airbags and ABS in most trims.

Talked to him. He will personally use the car for 3-4 years. The car will be passed to someone else in his family and will be used for 7 years/1L KM before being sold.
He's not interested in used cars.

Figo got airbag(s) standard but ABS is only available on top variant which is out of his budget.

Default Grand i10 vs Tiago : Which car under INR 5 Lakhs?

Posting on behalf of a friend.

He's looking to purchase his first car, and is based in Kolkata.
The car shall be mostly used for city runabouts.

The present budget is INR 5 lakhs OTR, which shall be most probably under a financing scheme.

Presently, we have short listed the Hyundai Grand i10 Facelift and the Tata Tiago, whose pros and cons are very similar to those mentioned in their official reviews, though test drives are yet to be taken.
There's no preference of automatic or manual as of now, but I believe decent specced automatic would go beyond the budget range.

What would you guys advise amongst the two? Any other car which should be considered?

Also, any leads regarding a particular dealer contact or a trusted Finance personnel who can offer a lucrative deal shall be much appreciated.

At that price find a good used car. Tiago is a good bet compared to the Grand i10, I'd say - but all this is personal taste, so will depend on how comfortable your friend is, so let him test drive a few models (eg: rented from Zoomcar) before he decides.

Look at the tbhp classifieds for (not all BHPian owned, but several which will be) used cars, along with OLX etc, as these are going to be hopefully better than dealers. Try buying directly from the owner.

IMO, Grand i10 or Tata Tiago Automatic (AMT) will cost much more than
R.5 Lakhs. You can try Maruti Alto K10 AMT, which may fit in your friends budget.

Hyundai cars are well built, reliable and last long. We have a 10 year i10 which drives as if it was bought last year. I would recommend i10 Grand. But i10 grand is a segment above Tiago. Hyundai is expected to launch the all new Santro in October, which would directly compete with the Tiago.

Although I have an I10 Automatic, which is a superb vehicle, there are couple of short-comings, in my opinion:

* Low mileage
* No rear seat split fold-down
* No steering Tilt feature

So I voted for the Swift
