The are according to me...don't know how the rest of members find it

i feel the NHC is too bouncy i mean sitting in the cabin you can feel almost all the bumps

so comfort wise i guess its optra lancer baleno NHC and then the ikon

and handling wise the optra baleno lancer ikon and NHC..i dont feel the NHC is very good in handling as its to high and not low unlike the others


thats what i feel.

I definitely know Baleno has way better comfort than NHC and Lancer even with 60 profile tyres, in stock tyres Baleno blows away Lancer/Ikon/NHC.

Comfort- Optra, Baleno, and the rest I am not sure about the order.

Of the lot, the Optra is the most comfortable while the Ikon handles better than all the others. I'm not very good at grading the rest of them into the remaining spaces...

I see that Optra consistently scores above NHC and Baleno is very close to NHC.
I did not have a good opinion about NHC ride and suspension. That is why i wanted to know how it is rated.

After driving a santro for long time i have realized the need for a good suspension in cars. My other car Ikon had a good suspension too. Dont want to end up with another car that every moment keeps reminding me how bad the road that i travel is.

Optra 1.6LS Biege, BS-3 at 8.55 L is a good offer?

The on road price mentioned by Sundaram Motors, Chennai was Rs.9.25L and then they said they are giving such huge discounts for some corporates!
