So I would rate AT to be more important than the GC. However, if Creta is your choice - why not try the AT (though you will have to adjust with a lower spec). Even the top end Creta is no match for Elantra anyways.
Thanks for your advice, i have booked the Elantra

If size is not a concern then check for XUV500 AT also, has both safety features and gizmos. Between Creta and Elantra, I would prefer Elantra, it is simply miles ahead of Creta.
I have heard the horror stories about DSG. My landlord has a superb and the car has left him stranded twice in 1 year on the road, i am staying away from Skoda and DSG till i hear some good things about them. I did have XUV shortlisted but too many niggles in the Mahindra product, also the new one is around the corner.

Things you can do in Bangalore including riding a cycle (which also gets stuck in traffic for hours), walking peacefully are not really clean and safe to a large extent.There are so many rental facilities including super bike rentals that you will save a lot of money by simply renting than owning a car in bangalore.

It is a proper metro with proper facility to rent or share rides. I would personally avoid spending on a new car in Bangalore even for the weekend drives. The cost of ownership, depreciating value of the car and the potential to invest and make it an appreciating value specially for a city like Bangalore should be considered.
I completely agree, that is why i am going with one car and not two as my wife wanted. We still want to have a car in the family just in case she plans to travel somewhere in the city, i feel it would be much safer. However your points are valid and as services improve i am definitely planing to consider them in future.

Elantra if you don't mind the low GC is a very underrated car and great value for the bucks you're spending.
Thanks

Great choice indeed. Congratulations. Do start an ownership thread as there is none if I remember correctly on the forum!

After i saw your thread, i have been noticing a blue elantra(my fav color) while going to office. The guy drives pretty rash and doesn't mind going off the road to overtake vehicles from extreme left(puddles, bumps) So i was wondering, GC must be pretty good.

A squid doesnt care about his vehicle. So i would not look at that squid as an example to assume GC.
