Default Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others

Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-citroenc3comparo.jpg

Citroen C3


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-citroenc3.jpg

What you'll like:

• Striking design! Very funky, yet likeable at the same time
• Good-looking cabin that is practical too
• 1.2L turbo-petrol is punchy, while the 1.2L naturally-aspirated engine offers excellent driveability
• 6-speed MT is slick and light to operate. Definitely one of the better gearboxes in the segment
• Sorted suspension offers a very good ride & handling package
• Compact size and light controls are perfect for the urban environment
• 10-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay is excellent to use
• Lots of customization options and accessories to make your car truly unique

What you won't:

• Missing plenty of features = electric ORVM adjustment, IRVM dimmer (not even manual), climate control, rear wiper & defogger, reversing camera, alloy wheels, tachometer!
• Just 2 variants at launch (no true top variant)
• No automatic transmission on offer - a big miss when ATs are rapidly gaining popularity in India
• Quality of cabin materials doesn't feel great; cost-cutting is pretty evident in certain areas
• Some ergonomic issues like the placement of rear power window switches, unusable rear headrests…
• 1.2L NA petrol’s highway performance is mediocre; 5-speed MT is notchy too
• Cabin width makes the interiors suitable for 4 adults, not 5
• Long-term reliability & after-sales service quality are big unknowns; the dealer network is tiny

Tata Punch

Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-tatapunch.jpg

What you'll like:

• Snazzy styling! We love the mini-Harrier face and tight rear end
• Well-designed & practical cabin with enough space for 4 adults
• 366-liter boot is accommodating
• 1.2L NA petrol offers good driveability in the city. Performance is acceptable <90 kmph
• Sorted road manners & reassuring high-speed stability
• Enjoyable Harman 6-speaker ICE. One of the better systems in this segment
• Features such as auto headlamps & wipers, cruise control, Traction Pro (AMT), cooled glovebox…with factory customization packs too
• A full 5-stars in the GNCAP! The safety package includes dual airbags, CSC, brake sway control, ISOFIX etc.

What you won't:

• 1.2L NA petrol’s highway performance is weak. At 100 km/h & up, more noise than action
• Suspension has a firm tune (R16 variants). It is compliant & liveable, but you do feel bad roads
• Jerky and slow AMT gearbox when competitors offer you smoother CVTs and torque converters
• 3-cylinder petrol cannot match the competition’s 4-cylinders in refinement & NVH
• No turbo petrol or diesel option. Period. Rivals & other Tata cars offer both
• Cabin width makes 4 adults welcome, not 5
• Some missing goodies such as an auto-dimming IRVM, split rear seat, rear AC vents, full-size spare…
• Tata's after-sales service quality is a hit or miss. Remains a gamble

Review Link

Nissan Magnite


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-nissanmagnite.jpg

What you'll like:

• The Magnite looks really good…that handsome face is a head-turner
• Sheer value-for-money pricing. Turbo-petrol with a proper AT under 10 lakhs!
• Peppy performance from the Magnite’s 1.0L turbo-petrol engine
• Smooth well-tuned CVT in a sea of jerky AMTs. Has Sport and L modes too
• Healthy legroom for rear passengers. Space packaging is brilliant
• Impressive kit (cruise control, LED headlamps, rear air-con vents, 360-degree camera, wireless charger, wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay)
• 205 mm of ground clearance is more than enough for any kind of bad roads
• Safety kit includes ESP, TPMS, ABS, EBD & hill start assist
• Base variant also gets a reasonable kit, including a rear wiper. It’s not poverty-spec

What you won't:

• Stiff & basic ride quality. You feel each and everything on the road
• The Magnite is built to a cost and it does show, especially in the budget-grade cabin
• Lower variants’ 1.0L naturally-aspirated petrol is a boring, unimpressive engine
• Clunky, firm MT gearshift & a clutch pedal that has more weight than it should
• No diesel option available on the Nissan Magnite
• Cabin is narrower than some competitors. The narrow width makes it best for 4 adults
• Missing features such as an auto-dimming IRVM, full-size spare tyre…
• Doesn't have the finesse or quality of premium crossovers like the XUV300, Sonet etc.
• Nissan's tiny dealership network & lousy after-sales quality

Driving Report

2022 Maruti Brezza


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-2022marutibrezza.jpg

What you'll like:

• Good-looking Compact SUV with improved road presence & mass appeal
• Well-rounded product. Takes a successful formula and improves upon it
• A competent BS6 petrol with Smart Hybrid tech and excellent fuel efficiency
• Smooth 6-speed torque-converter AT comes with paddle shifters
• Well-mannered suspension setup riding on 16-inch wheels and 215/60 section tyres
• Decent cabin space for a sub-4 meter car. Lots of storage & a powerful air-con too
• Now gets a sunroof, 360-degree camera, head-up display, rear A/C vents, wireless charging, ambient lighting, tilt & telescopic steering adjustment, connected car features etc
• Long feature list includes dual projector LED auto headlamps, LED DRLs & foglamps, auto-dimming IRVM, cruise control and a 9-inch touchscreen HU paired with an Arkamys sound system
• Safety kit includes 6 airbags, ESP, hill-hold assist and ISOFIX. Built on the same platform as the outgoing car, which had received a 4-star GNCAP safety rating
• Maruti’s excellent after-sales service, wide dealer network & fuss-free ownership experiences

What you won't:

• Feels more like a significant facelift rather than an all-new product
• No diesel option like its rivals! Petrol-only as of now. CNG may be offered in the future
• 1.5L petrol engine lacks outright grunt. Tuned for fuel efficiency and suitable for relaxed cruising only
• Expensive! AT variants are priced higher than competitor turbo-petrol with more advanced transmissions
• AT option commands a stiff Rs. 1.5 lakh ex-showroom premium!
• Interior quality and fit & finish are underwhelming for the price. The game has moved on
• Short gearing of the 5-speed MT and lack of 6th cog results in an unusually busy engine at 100-120 km/h
• 328-litre boot is among the smallest in the segment
• Some missing features like ventilated seats, leather upholstery, TPMS, drive modes, auto wipers and front parking sensors

Review Link

Hyundai Venue


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-2022hyundaivenue.jpg

What you'll like:

• A mini-Creta in almost every way! Same formula, in a smaller package
• Precise build & quality (including interiors) are easily among the segment's best
• Competent engines mated to slick gearboxes
• Fast shifting dual-clutch Automatic gearbox available
• Balanced road manners. Very easy to drive as well
• Loaded to the gills with equipment (paddle shifters, drive modes, sunroof, BlueLink telematics, cabin air purifier etc.)
• Top safety equipment includes 6 airbags, BAS, ESP, HSA, ISOFIX and more
• Hyundai's competent after-sales & fuss-free ownership experiences

What you won't:

• Diminutive street presence. Looks more hatchback than SUV from some angles, especially the rear
• Strictly a 4-seater; the rear bench has very awkward seating for the middle occupant
• Missing kit (auto wipers, auto-dimming IRVM, steering reach adjustment...)
• Long-term reliability of the DCT is a concern
• Engine noise is very prominent, more so in Sport mode
• AT only on the petrol, not the diesel. Kia Sonet gets a Diesel AT

Review Link

Kia Sonet


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-kiasonet.jpg

What you'll like:

• A mini-Seltos in almost every way! Same formula, in a smaller package
• Sharp & handsome styling. In our opinion, this is the best-looking Compact SUV
• Excellent spread of powertrains including a fast & enjoyable turbo-petrol
• Diesel AT is fantastic; the only smooth torque-converter gearbox in a sea of AMTs
• Well-tuned suspension offers a good balance between ride & handling. 205 mm GC too
• Top safety package includes 6 airbags, ESP, HSA, TPMS etc.
• Very enjoyable 7-speaker Bose sound system
• Impressive kit (ventilated seats, sunroof, auto LED headlamps, cruise control, wireless charger)

What you won't:

• Rear seat legroom is just adequate, while its limited width makes the Sonet a 4-seater
• Top variants are pricey! More expensive than its sibling, the Hyundai Venue too
• Some misses ( 60:40 rear seat split, auto wipers, steering reach adjustment, illuminated window buttons, full-size spare tyre on top trims…)
• Dual-clutch ATs (like the Petrol DCT) have a history of poor reliability in India
• As always with Kia, the variant spread is tough to figure out. Good luck finding your perfect Sonet!
• Waiting periods are a couple of months long for some trims

Review Link

Tata Nexon


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-tatanexon.jpg

What you’ll like:

• Very well-priced for what it offers. Undercuts all rivals
• Funky styling ensures that the Nexon stands out from the crowd
• 5-star NCAP safety rating & a solid build, unlike many of its flimsy competitors
• Nice, spacious cabin with comfortable seats. You get a practical 350-litre boot too
• 1.5L diesel & 1.2L petrol offer good performance. Diesel is especially impressive
• Balanced road manners for such a tall car. Fine EPS & 209 mm of ground clearance!
• Loaded with features: Driving modes, LED DRLs, reversing camera, 8-speaker ICE etc.
• Dual airbags, ABS & Isofix child seat mounts are standard on all variants

What you won’t:

• Overdone design will be a turnoff for many of you. The rear end is way too busy
• Jiggly low-speed ride; bumps are felt in the city (unlike other Tata cars)
• 3-cylinder petrol can't match 4-cylinder competition in NVH. Has lag too
• The observant eye will notice some rough edges in fit, finish & quality
• Concerns over long-term reliability, more so of the freshly developed engines
• Missing essentials (telescopic steering adjustment, auto-dimming IRVM, proper dead pedal)
• Tata's inconsistent after-sales experience is far from that of Maruti & Hyundai
• Shorter service / checkup interval of 6 months & 7,500 km (rivals have 12-month gaps)

Launch Thread

Mahindra XUV300


Citroen C3 vs Tata Punch vs Nissan Magnite vs Renault Kiger vs Others-mahindraxuv300.jpg

What you'll like:

• A truly premium crossover. Nice build, quality & refinement levels
• Great looking! Smart design has none of the usual Mahindra quirkiness
• Cabin has enough space for 5. Quality-wise, the interior is more like a Hyundai
• Fantastic engines. The petrol & diesel, both, offer fast performance & good driveability
• A compliant ride with neutral road manners
• Top safety kit. 7 airbags, ESP, ABS, all-wheel disc brakes, TPMS, seatbelt reminders for all & more
• Loaded to the gills with equipment (front parking sensors, sunroof, cruise control, auto headlamps & wipers etc)

What you won't:

• The most expensive Compact SUV in India! Not overpriced, but definitely higher than expected
• 257-litre boot is the smallest in the segment. There are cheaper hatchbacks which have a larger boot
• Lack of a proper middle variant. W6 trim is simply too bare-bones, while W8 is expensive!
• AMT doesn’t suit a truly premium crossover like the XUV300
• Sad audio system by current standards. The bass, especially, is poor
• Mahindra's after-sales service quality is a hit or miss. Remains a gamble
• Some important features missing (dead pedal, parcel tray, rear air-con, steering reach adjustment etc)

Thread moved from the Assembly Line to the What-Car section. Thanks for sharing!

Am an AT guy now, and would prefer the Kia Sonet Diesel / Petrol AT. It's expensive, but the best of the lot IMHO. Among the MTs, I'd go for the XUV300 or the Nexon, although I have to say = Mahindra & Tata really need to offer proper ATs in their Compact SUVs. Enough with the jerky AMTs. The two Indian brands have done a fabulous job with ATs in their larger SUVs (XUV700, Scorpio, Safari, Harrier); it's now time to offer smooth automatics in the smaller crossovers.

I can not vote. But I can probably describe feelings here. I am relarively novice (I just learnt driving few months back from driving school. It was old and worn out petrol car). I learnt car in my mid 30s so I am not at all looking for a very big change in behaviour of car and would settle with dull response of engine the way I learned. My brother's Dzire Diesel and my friend's Nexon turbo petrol were very different in accelerator response and hence did not like them. Rather I found solace in test driving Brezza/Urban Cruiser (previous generation) and realized I found my boring mate within CSUV range I am targetting. I almost ended up buying Urban Cruiser Mid-AT variant before they hiked price and took it beyong 9.99 Ex showroom. Similar to Engine, I am also fine with bit of a perceived dull/common cabin experience of previous generation Brezza. The refreshed Brezza is not so refreshed from inside (quality wise) and is still to my liking. Costing is insane. But for me, a middle class person who would be keeping a car coming from Suzuki stable for next 7-8 years, it may not matter much in long term. Here goes my vote: Petrol Brezza/Urban cruiser Manual (AT is costly and not justified for me).

My family tends to keep cars for long and preference is strictly automatics, and since we live in NCR, the tribunal laws make it difficult for us to own a diesel(not that we need one given our extremely low running).

Now that the crux of the matter has been established, I'd most likely choose Brezza P AT. Agreed that the pricing is extortionate, but I'm a real fan of fill it, shut it, forget it cars and that's where these Marutis' deliver, or atleast that has been my experience so far.

Another great option in the list is Kia's Sonet, my only concern being DCT woes. It's an excellent car otherwise would be my first choice if it came with a conventional AT like the one available in it's diesel avatar.

Though I am not in the lookout for the car in this segment, but among the options listed, I have chosen Brezza for the following main priorities:

Safety (safe platform)
reliability (don't expect this to breakdown),
durability ( ages well and slow wear and tear),
niggle free (I really don't want to run to the A.S.S for this or that, no more than once a year routine preventive maintenance)
A.S.S (great experience, and we also have the Maruti owned service centre in Delhi, with exemplary service standards, so no dealer wala chakkar)
Driving needs (mostly city, and limited highway & sedate)
Transmission (still not.decided, but 6 speed AT is enticing)
Fuel efficiency (among best in class)

Other options are weak in at least one or more dimensions. I really don't want to add any cognitive load due to any of the weak dimensions. Just hassle free driving experience.

Voted for Magnite CVT.

I know its an unpopular opinion but I somehow find it the best VFM currently in sub4m subCompact Crossover segment. My reasons:

+ A potent engine(1.0 turbo) transmission(CVT) combo.
+Great GC & good ride quality for our crater filled roads.
+ Frugal enough 10-11 kpl in city & 16+ on highways as per owners.
+ 4* with stable bodyshell GNCAP rating.

- Interiors quality is not really great.
- A.S.S is a hit or miss.

This segment has so many options but sadly not one is really a complete car that one can go for without compromising on an aspect or other. I find this the best compromise in the segment amongst all options. If this were available in 2019, would have been my pick ahead of my Jazz CVT for which I paid similar price. No complaints with the Jazz as such but for 10-12L I find Magnite is a better value proposition in current market.

Brezza AT would have been my first choice but for the pricing. 17L+ OTR for a sub4m car is beyond me

Citreon C3 is another option am following which looks promising but in current avatar won’t make the cut for me. No AT option and missing basics like rear wash/wipe, adjustable front headrests at least, electric ORVMs.

I haven't voted, the reason being that i am confused how all of the above are on the same band? Aren't we comparing some extremes in terms of size, price and utility here, like C3/Punch to XUV 300/Nexon/Brezza? Pls correct me if my understanding is incorrect

If it's a primary car, would go for the Nexon diesel because of the VFM it offers.

For a Second car, would go for the Citroen mainly because it is fun to drive and covers the basics a car enthusiast wants. Good ride and handling which reminds me of my first car Figo. Many cars of today have lost the plot of having actual driving fun while loading gizmos to the brim. Citroen covers the basics, would go for it.

The Kiger is the most VFM car in this segment considering it gets a CVT and not an AMT (and this also makes me wonder how the Nexon is a VFM product?). I have tested almost all cars in this segment (except the new Brezza and the Citroen) and can vouch the Kiger stood above the rest. The CVT is much better to drive compared to all the AMT's. The Brezza and Urban Cruiser were still using the 4 speed TC when I tried them out. Not a bad package then but the GB felt a bit dated.

All those labelling the Nexon a VFM product, please take a test drive and then vote. It will change your views.

If Citroen C3 and Punch are compared then why other CSUVs are in the list and if those CSUVs find a place then why Ignis is not in the list which is deemed to be direct competition to C3, Punch?!

I don't think the comparison is fair at all. A C3 with proper crossovers like Nexon and XUV3OO? I think it's comparing products across segments. Also, the reviews are all dated. For example the 3OO's review was done when the car was launched. A lot has changed in the market since then. I am afraid the thread will add very little value to anyone trying to make a purchase.

I haven't driven any of these cars, but not having a "proper" AT is a dealbreaker for me. This eliminates some good cars from the list such as the C3, Punch, Nexon, and XUV300.

The Brezza is overpriced for what it offers, while the Venue and Sonnet have safety concerns. The Urban Cruiser is due for a refresh and will be priced similarly to the Brezza.

The Magnite and Kiger are decent VFM options. I vote for the Kiger, simply because Renault has a better service network compared to Nissan.

As in this poll, many ignore and miss the Renault KIGER. Off the sub compact SUV's i've taken a Test drive in, it is the one I find as the most value for money, with the combination of best gearbox and ride quality (perfect suspension setup).

It has decent interiors, CVT gearbox and a capable 1.0 litre turbo engine. In states other than Bangalore, this vehicle would be less than ₹ 10L on-road. For their top end RXZ CVT Dual Tone turbo model. Extended warranty and 3 yrs service package are also quite affordable.

It's worth checking out.

For the asking prices & being an MT guy (till the knee gives up on me some day) - I find the Nexon the best of the lot for general purpose usage(obvious bias being an owner - please excuse).

It gives the best bang for the buck on space, build, power, safety (proven) & kit. Has the necessary bling that today's customers want as well. Is a very practical and easy to drive car thats easy on the pocket to maintain as well. Yeah maybe it has rough edges or lacks the finesse compared to the Koreans in plastic. But then - for me these are really insignificant items in the list of must haves. I don't discard a car just because I didn't like a particular plastic's edge .

Especially compared to the likes of the C3, Punch, Kiger/Magnite etc - I find the extra money to be paid absolutely justified. What one gets under the bonnet alone justifies that premium price. I'd rather stretch budget with time or loan & buy the Nexon. And - my opinion is the same for the Brezza/UrbanCruiser/Sonet. If one doesn't like the Nexon, still better to go for these 3 rather than the other ones with small engines, just because they are that bit cheaper. The compromises are rather obvious.

Then - if one wants a spacious, well built car that offers excellent cabin comfort + amazing handling for the driver to have fun - I'd skip that entire poll list & go for the Altroz Diesel instead! I know for sure. If it was on sale back in 2019 - I'd have bought that over the Nexon for sure.
If AT is a must - it would be the Sonet diesel AT for me (its a hypothetical scenario so ignoring the high sticker price).
