Ignis vs KUV100 Comparison Review

Updated on: Jan 19, 2017
Mahindra KUV100 vs Maruti Suzuki Ignis Comparison:

"The Ignis & the KUV100 both offer a long list of features, great styling and an attractive price tag for the small car buyers in the country. But the Ignis stands out, as it offers a gratifying drive, better mileage, first in the segment features and Maruti Suzuki's unbelievable reliability and trust of its customers"

Tata Hexa vs XUV500 Comparison Review

Published on: Jan 18, 2017
Mahindra XUV500 vs Tata Hexa Comparison:

"The Hexa trumps the XUV in terms of space & comfort. Firstly, it provides the option of captain seats for the middle-row, while the XUV is only available with the bench. Secondly, Hexa’s third-row is far more spacious and comfortable than the XUVs. It can genuinely accommodate two full-sized adults. Thirdly, Hexa’s interiors feel more upmarket and plush compared to the cheap and plasticky cabin of the XUV"

Ignis vs Brio Comparison Review

Honda Brio vs Maruti-Suzuki Ignis Comparison:


"The all new face-lifted Honda Brio offers boundless driving dynamics & whetted mobility in bottle-necked traffic situations, but it's no match for what Ignis has on offer which is extremely
remarkable. Ignis has got all the potential that makes it smart enough to dominate the market"

Maruti Suzuki Ignis vs WagonR Comparison Review

Published on: Jan 15, 2017
Maruti-Suzuki WagonR vs Ignis Comparison:

"5 year old WagonRs sell for less than 3 Lakh Rs. in the used car market today. Within the next 5 years, the sales of the current WagonR will get discontinued because it does not pass the upcoming crash norms resulting in even more depreciation. The Ignis on the other hand will surely fetch over 4 Lakh rupees in the used car market after a usage of 5 to 7 years"

Ignis vs Grand i10 Comparison Review

Published on: Jan 15, 2017
Hyundai Grand i10 vs Maruti-Suzuki Ignis Comparison:

"For the last three years Grand i10's consistent sales of 10,000 units per month, seems to have stuck like thorn in Maruti's side. Maruti has spared no effort in targeting the golden goose of its Korean rival, and delivered a comprehensively superior vehicle over the Grand i10"

Ignis vs Tiago Comparison Review

Published on: Jan 15, 2017
Tata Tiago vs Maruti Suzuki Ignis Comparison Review:


"Tiago has a slight advantage over the Ignis in terms of dynamics. Tiago absorbs the bumps and ruts like a total pro. The Ignis may have higher ground clearance and bigger wheels than the Tiago, but it still cannot handle bad roads as effortlessly as the Tiago does. Tiago aslo corners with more enthusiasm, with a quick turn-in and transmits marginally better feel and feedback through the wheel than the Ignis"

Maruti Suzuki Ignis vs Baleno Comparison Review

Maruti Suzuki Baleno vs Ignis Comparison:


"The CVT is a joy to use around town, with seamless power delivery compared to AMT's intermittent power transmission. But on the Highway, the Baleno suffers from what is known as the rubber-band effect. If you floor the accelerator on the Baleno during an overtake, it just makes the engine spin faster, without any boost in acceleration"

Maruti Suzuki Ignis vs Swift Comparison Review

Updated on: Jan 13, 2017
Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Ignis Comparison Review:


"Suzuki seems to have worked a lot on the feedback about Swift's painfully tight rear seat and tiny boot. The Ignis is immensely better than Swift in terms of rear seat space. There is significantly better knee-room and head-room even for two 6-footers to sit one behind the other, with a couple of inches to spare on all sides"

Hexa vs Innova Crysta Comparison Review

Published on: Jan 13, 2017
Toyota Innova Crysta vs Tata Hexa Comparison:


"Toyota Innova Crysta is surely an undisputed veteran when it comes to the most desirable 7 seater companion for those long journeys , but it falls short against the extra auxiliary capabilities that the Tata Hexa has on offer. Despite the fact that both of these have almost similar seating arrangements , but the 4x4 talent on the Hexa gives it a dual character of both MPV & SUV which proves to be triumphant over the Innova Crysta"

Variant-by-Variant Review of Tata Tiago

Tata Tiago - CONDITIONALLY RECOMMENDED



Tiago XB/XB O – NOT RECOMMENDED
Why AC & Power Steering are indispensable in India?
India being a tropical country, almost all its regions suffer from heat and humidity, some more than the others. The urban areas also suffer from dust and pollution all of which can be mitigated if you have an Air Conditioned cabin. In case of the steering, tight parking spaces and novice drivers, both are found in abundance in our country. Secondly, the difference between the EMI of AC-PS and non-AC-PS variants is extremely small and it is almost completely compensated by better resale value of AC-PS variants, in the used car market. Therefore, we do not recommend any car without AC & PS to our prospective buyers.

Tiago XE/XE O Diesel: CONDITIONALLY RECOMMENDED
The Tiago ‘XE’ diesel is the cheapest diesel car having AC & Power Steering in the market. We recommend it only

Polo vs Elite i20 Comparison Review

Updated on: Jan 05, 2016
Hyundai Elite i20 vs Volkswagen Polo Comparison Review:


"Beware of the GT TSI's dual clutch gearbox, which has acquired the dubious distinction of packing up beyond repair in innumerable cases. Volkswagen's dealers are also not as well disciplined as Hyundai's, thanks to the Korean habit of obsessive micro-management and a vice-like grip over dealership operations."
