I agree about it on paper. But sitting inside the car, my mother felt much more at ease in S-cross. She had a distinct opinion about S-cross being better than Jazz as a front and rear passenger. So that was the decider.

Quite interesting to see how S-Cross wasn't even in consideration and then became the decision. That's we love TBHP.
Do share some cool pics when you take delivery.
Happy Motoring.
Yes, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful community. I would not have considered this altogether if not for the suggestion from tbhp.
Sadly, I would not be present here on the delivery date. I was expecting to drive around the car for few days. Would ask my father to click a few pics.

Congratulations, good choice - both car and colour! City has a bit more aspirational value, but this is a much better overall package.

That's ok, the objective was complete when the best suited car was finalized.
Do drop in some updates when you get to drive it next.

Enjoy

1. Toyota - there is risk of Yaris being discontinued in favor of Ciaz.

This is exactly why I posted the info with a Rumour tag.

My personal take- If you like a car, and specially from Maruti, go ahead without any worries of spares availability or service. Even for old or rare cars, spares support is fairly good. S Cross has sold decently and the 1.5L petrol is being used in many Marutis.

Shashi
Just so that you can make an informed choice. Good luck.

I would suggest that you consider the Toyota Yaris. In addition to ABS and EBD, Toyota has opted to equip the Yaris with seven airbags (driver, passenger, two side, two curtain and knee), as standard right from the base variant. If safety and space is your priority then it is a good option. Toyota cars are known to be reliable with less maintenance.

Default Re: CVT Automatic car for dad - Honda Jazz vs Toyota Yaris

I was searching for an automatic petrol hatchback or sedan 2.5 yrs back as a replacement to my decade old Fiat Palio MJD which was sold off

After all the test rides of AMT starting from Alto-Celerio-Redigo-Kwid-i10-Tiago-Tigor I dropped AMT because of the jerks and noise

Finally narrowed to CVT & DSG gearboxes for smoothness in which competition between European VS Japanese VW Polo TSI DSG VS Micra/Jazz/Baleno

European DSG dropped as VW Polo is small and very high cost and mantainence

Final shortlist was CVT Japanese Nissan VS Honda VS Suzuki

Nissan Micra dropped out as it is too small compared to Honda Jazz and Suzuki Baleno

Lastly Honda Jazz VS Suzuki Baleno

Honda Jazz CVT was expensive and less space,performance was not great for Rs 10 lac price point

Baleno Delta CVT was clear winner with better ground clearance, long wheelbase,spacious interiors and super refined smooth CVT

Now in 2021 we also have Hyundai Aura AT & Honda Amaze CVT sedan in Rs 10 Lakh price point-Please test ride and explore both before booking Jazz

Congrats, I was about to ask if it was white but then I saw your thread.

So a white S-Cross is our Transformer.
