Dear Gagan Sir,
I have been driving Alto MT for the past 5 yrs. Now I want to upgrade to a safer and easy to handle car. My height is 5 feet 4 inch and my usage max 700 kms a month with 50% highway and 50% very congested city roads.

I want to choose between the above two cars and I like MT (petrol) cars only. Please advice me
1. Which is a safer car among the above two cars ?
2. Which car is comparatively easy to handle for women ?

Thanks and Regards

There is no crash test done of New Gen Santro.
In terms of entry segment - Santro yes feels more sturdy against Alto and Wagon r, but when you compare it against Swift
Although Swift got 2 star in NCAP and Santro build just feels okay and would be incorrect to presume to be better against Swift

Fact is Elite I20 African version (similar one to as sold in India) got 3 star in crash test, Santro in no way feels as sturdy as what Elite I20 is. at best to be likely 2 star rating to expectation.

Considering same its Maruti Swift which is the pick for superior engine performance, lot better drive and handling with superior cabin space, looks, styling against Santro. Not to miss Swift is iconic with best resale too if you consider selling in next 6 to 7 yrs

Hope should help !!
