If boot is not a major concern, you can consider Ford Freestyle. Has high GC + 6 airbags will be major plus points here and fits your other requirements too. Plus you can also get a Diesel variant within your budget.
or next in the line will be Maruti Suzuki WagonR top model. But please get to know about the rear seat space.

Amongst the ones in your list, I would not recommend to go with your top choice Triber (shoddy design. low powered, low safety). If rear defogger/ wiper is not an issue, you can cosider Tata Nexon and Ertiga. But I think you can have rear wipers installed aftermarket.

Triber or Magnite has high waiting period I suppose and also their backseat is not comfortable for 3 persons atm as I read from several reviews.

Triber would be a downgrade from your 2010 i20 IMO.

If 7-seater is an optional, and space is a big criterion, Tata Nexon is the one to pick. It has a good engine and lots of space.

You should also look at the Honda Jazz CVT, it has lots of space inside but is a marred by low GC and future of Honda in India.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am skeptical about Ford cars (even though I have included the Ecosport in my options) because of uncertainty of Ford's future in India (from the information I have read on Team-BHP).
Also, I am not looking for a diesel car as my yearly running is approx. 5K to 6K km. I am really not sure if we can add rear defogger plus rear wash-wipe from aftermarket accessory shops or authorized service centers in non-equipped variants.

Yes, I have read on Team-BHP that the interior quality of Triber is satisfactory, whereas the interior quality of my 2010 i20 is good even now. I am considering Nexon as a serious contender as it looks and has the presence of a proper compact SUV comparable to that of the Ecosport IMO (other sub-4m SUVS look beefed-up hatchbacks to me, but then that is my opinion).

If budget allows get Nexon XMA (S), the best around 10L.

If not TD Kiger CVT, the interiors looks quite close to Nexon.

If you can wait for the TATA HBX, a new Tata solid car.

If you can, I'd recommend looking for an Ertiga whether used or new. It seems to suit all your requirements. Either that or a used S-Cross ( if you're able to find a petrol auto within budget)

Duh.. these are just speculations going round for past several years. Ford is here to stay.

I think we can add rear wipers but not defoggers aftermarket.

And yes, Tata Nexon is a good option you 'll choose.

Have you considered going the used car way? You can get a very well maintained, less driven and upto 3 year old Honda City CVT for 10 lakhs. Mumbai has no dearth of such inventory. It would definitely be money well spent. Think about it.

We had similar requirements and ended up buying the base spec Jazz AT. While it is spacious, having 6 on board is a tough ask (even for my S cross, let alone Jazz). It was bought for INR10.05 L after all the discounts and offers. Almost zero gizmos other than steering mounted controls, but no touchscreen, only an ancient system that plays CDs. You also get a reversing cam.

I can totally understand your situation. I have been living with the Elite i20 for the last 6+ years and can vouch that the features that the car offered are just about adequate even in todays time and age. I have also been contemplating of replacing it with something up to 10L but have realised that the choices are really limited. A few options that I have test driven.

Tata Nexon - Good car, has all the bells and whistles, but the top end auto cost 13 OTR. However, the gear box is a disaster. In fact the Tata SA also agreed that it isn't the smoothest in the segment. If you are a driving enthusiast, forget this.

Kia Sonet - The auto gear boxes are silky smooth, especially compared to the Nexon. The variants are loaded with new-age features and will keep the freshness like the i20 even after a few years.

Kia Seltos - out of budget, but really nice and spacious. I wouldn't mind stretching my budget a bit more for the Seltos if I ever zero down on the Sonet.

Hyundai Grand i10 - even more loaded than my i20, but space is nothing compared to its elder sibling.

Nissan Magnite - awesome pricing for the kind of features it offers, but the problem is Hyundai has spoilt me in these last 6 years and I just didn't feel the quality up to the mark.

Skoda Rapid - Awesome drive, smooth gear box and I was in love with Skoda again (I owned a Laura for a very long time and the feel from that car is another level itself). Kept on hold, waiting for Kushaq launch.

New i20 - Since you have skipped the Elite i20, you can look at replacing your i20 with this one. Very good VFM. My cousin got 1 a few days back and he prefers to drive it over his Elantra also.

PM me in case you need more details.

The only car which meets most of your requirements is the Ertiga!

Thanks for your suggestion. However, parents are against buying a used car, and I personally do not prefer the low-slung nature of sedans.

Thanks. I will consider Jazz in my list of options.

Thanks for suggesting these options; however, I have ruled out Hyundai cars for reasons mentioned in the opening post. Yes, I have included Kiger (Magnite is similar I believe) and Nexon in my list. Kia Sonet is a good suggestion; I will read about it in Team-BHP reviews.

The Honda Jazz suits yours requirements perfectly. Its got so much space, that it is ridiculous. Its feels airy and your family will be seated very comfortably as well. I have the Jazz CVT and my annual running is around 6,000 kms as well. Its a no nonsense and very practical vehicle.

The other option is the Nexon AMT, but the gearbox may not be to your liking. If you can deal with a manual and a sedan, the Skoda Rapid is a good choice.

I think the Honda Amaze S variant will be the best option. Decently loaded, moves up from a hatch to a compact sedan. Great space and a reliable engine which can be used on the highway for sure as well as for small city runs.
