Default Re: Toyota Yaris vs other C2 segment sedans

I just had a test ride of Yaris VX CVT today. Coming from a Tjet, driving a CVT was a huge difference. (first time I drove an automatic) While the ride was comfortable, relaxed with excellent NVH levels, I did not get any "connected" feeling with the car at all. In 5 mins I was losing interest in driving. I was wondering if I would ever like long drives with a CVT. Pricing wise, there are some good discounts available though.

The experience has left me wondering whether I should check out the Vento / Rapid TSI which I had ruled out due to the DSG issues I have read on the forum. Guess I need to "un-learn" my driving style if I decide to take a plunge for an automatic.

Why not consider the Verna AT? It might turn out to be the right middle ground with boring at one end of the spectrum and questionable reliability at the other.

I voted for the Honda City for the rev happy 1.5 i-VTEC and practical cabin, handling. Funnily enough, it's the same L15A motor which made its debut in India in the Dolphin City, albeit with more power, of-course. If I were to pick a diesel, it would be the Vento.

This car will be worshipped for the next 5 years atleast. Will primarily be used by 2 adults and 2 kids. Sometimes one of my parents may also hop in. Safety features are non-negotiable. Will have an average running of 1000 kms per month..........

Dear members,A big Thank You ! After 4 months of study, finally decided on the Nexon AMT XZA+ Petrol variant and took delivery of the same the last week.I express my sincere gratitude to members AYP,ani_meher,DPetrolHead,Mu009,greendream,Lathees h,nirmaljustdoit,sumeethaldankar, Simhi and others for their advice.Also thanks to all members in the 'Nexon: Official Review' thread whose views helped a lot.

A lot of time and effort was spent in the decision which was taken based on the following criteria : Safety,Budget,Space,Dimensions,Ground clearance,Ride comfort,ASS, Mileage and Looks.Resale value was not a consideration as the car is planned to be kept till it dies.I should say availability of options has only increased the complexity in decision making.Cars under consideration were Nexon,Yaris,Ecosport Trend+ (the model got discontinued when i went to book it !),Aspire,Verna and i20 Asta.Every car ticked some or most of the criteria but not all and that added to the complexity.

Can confidently say that i can now provide some decent info on the above cars and their showrooms in Hyderabad Shall provide a detailed write-up on the Requirement-Booking experience-Initial riding experience etc.in a separate post.
