Hi Gagan sir, seeking your help here as I am planning to buy a new car.

My main question:
"My and my wife, we both love the Baleno Zeta CVT petrol or Totota Glanza G variant CVT petrol - but we are very much confused as there are reviews I have seen on social media about the car's build quality, thin sheet metal and heard its not safe to go for it.
Few of our friends advised too about the light weight of the car and mentioned the car is not safe to buy."

We are not sure about all of this as we felt happy and good during the test drive of both Baleno and Glanza. Can you please help to make the decision whether we should go for Baleno or Glanza or else kindly help to suggest the better option

Details are:

My budget = up to 10 Lakhs (I would want to keep my monthly EMI around 10,000 to 11,700)
My car usage = will be on the weekends mostly, in City as well as on occasional highway trips
Preference = only for Automatic cars & in Petrol
History = I have previously used WagonR vxi AMT for 3 years and sold it. Drove total 12,000 KMS in my life.
Location = I am currently at Bengaluru, Electronic city (and aware that the car prices are higher here compared to other states, I guess its due to highter road tax here)

I have done the test drive for the below cars:

Tata Nexon XMA petrol - BS-IV = we liked the ride quality and there is no doubt about the safety however we are missing out on lot of features and this car is little out of our budget

Hyundai i20 CVT petrol - sportz model - BS-IV = car is good but back row/seats are compact and the space is very tight also we didn't like the design much, especially at the back. Also we felt it’s a bit costlier for what its offering

Tata Tigor XZA+ petrol - BS-IV = we liked the car, the top end model is in our budget too but then again you don't get the premium feel in inside the cabin and also NVH levels are high I felt. (sorry I know it’s a fastback/hatchback but still we took a test drive due to our budget)

Toyota Glanza - G variant CVT petrol -BS-VI = Love the car, it’s the same baleno but we get the lot of features and only missing out on rear view camera (also the price we saw is less than the Baleno Zeta CVT petrol)

Baleno zeta CVT petrol - BS-VI == Me and my wife both loved this car, in terms of everything, design, space, features, safatey, suspension. However, there are reviews I have seen on social media about the car's build quality, thin sheet metal and heard its not safe to go for it. Few of our friends advised too about the light weight of the car and mentioned the car is not safe to buy.
Now, we are so so confused here that we want to go for the same and hence seeking your advice

Thank you,
Sumit

Hello,

Am surprised that you have not referred about Jazz CVT Automatic
Honda Jazz V CVT post discounts and dealer end negotiation will fall in 10 Lakh Price in Karnataka
> Feels more sturdy
> More Premium against Baleno
> Best in Class Spacious cabin
> Suspension Dynamics feels better than Baleno
> Comes equipped with Paddle Shift too which can bring an excitement on drive too

Although a slight old thread, may refer this post on - Jazz Vs Baleno CVT

Hope should help !!

Dear Sumit

I am just sharing my opinion...

Baleno and Glanza both are same cars except badging and cosmetic changes. As u mentioned, it really has very poor build quality. The shining of paint of these cars fades rapidly with age. To understand better u may compare the shining of paint of a 3 yr old Baleno with a new one.

About Elite i20, you correctly observed that its rear seats does not offer enough legroom and they are further congested with the rear AC vents.

For Tata cars they are not proper automatics and they are just AMTs which is much inferior than CVTs of Baleno and I20. Further, the plastic quality these cars is very very cheap.

What Admin told regarding Jazz, it is truly the segment leader with best build quality and its a proper CVT automatic with best refinement. But do remember that the service interval of Jazz is 6 months which is the biggest drawback of Jazz.

If you don't dislike compact sedans, then I would suggest you to look for Honda Amaze petrol CVT. It can be an absolute value for money with Paddle shift and 4 star safety rating and it has the lowest turning radious of 4.7 mtrs which will add to your comfort in city usage.

Hope I am not diverting your focus and I am just suggesting.

Regards.
