My budget is 8 lakhs. I live in Siliguri area of West Bengal. Just newly married. Selected Honda Amaze S model. Still looking for better options in compact SUV , if available as per your opinion.

Further, recently visited Honda showroom in Siliguri. The sales executive said cash discount of Rs 20 k on Honda Amaze is applicable only for BSIV model not on BS VI model. Is it true ? I have test drove Venue but space problem at back seat. Any better suggestions from you.

Will it be wise to go for compact SUV in 8 lakh or better to go for compact sedan. Firstly and lastly road conditions are not good in my area. Please suggest Sir.

Greetings !!

Compact SUV
If you seek Compact SUV then you have choices in form of
> Maruti Vitara Brezza Lxi
> Tata Nexon XE

other than 1.2 Litre Engines as what used in Sonet, Venue which will well come within specified budget.

See, basis budget of the lot Vitara Brezza Lxi leads as the best been
> Bigger 1.5 Litre Engine with 104.7 PS Power and 138 NM Torque as against 1.2 Litre Engine as what used in Sonet and Venue
> Is what essentially a 4 cylinder Petrol Engine as against 3 cylinder Petrol Engine as what used in Nexon - hence superior NVH
> Although Brezza lacks advanced safety of ESP & Traction Control and not 5 star safety rated car like nexon, but is what decent enough in safety as scored in 4 star in Global NCAP and structure marked stable in crash test
> Proven, Reliable brand with assured low ownership Maintenance
> Suspension dynamics for highway and steering feedback when compared against Amaze is better in Dzire
> Despite been base Model, car is farily well equipped, except adjustable head restraints on rear, please refer:- Maruti Vitara Brezza Lxi Features has all standard styling, conevenience, safety and infotainment features

However yes
> Fuel Efficiency / Mleage will come down as against Amaze

Honda Amaze in Compact Sedan
Although Amaze SMT is a good choice, but theres a limited edition model which is what introduced based on Amaze SMT including digipad 2.0 touchscreen and sliding armrest on front. Details:- Honda Amaze Special Edition

Amaze actually due to better rear seat legroom and boot space marginally feels more spacious against Brezza. Yes is also a good reliable car, but do note that due to soft suspension and light steering is what a car mainly for city usage. Somehow, high speed dynamics felt very average and thus not the best for high speed handling and feedback

Amaze or Brezza
So - depends on preference -
As you referred that road conditions are not good, then Amaze due to soft suspension may not feel inspiring in confidence to drive, Vitara Brezza Lxi Petrol is what recommmended choice and care for superior all round car - Brezza Lxi calls for a choice

In terms of deal offer
Will definite guide you and Amaze BS4 as what told by dealer is absolute myth
There are no BS4 cars been allowed to sell and registered in, Also, discount offers are what applied on BS6 Car
Anyhow - if you go in for Brezza can tell you that discount offers although ranges from city to city but anything around rs 20K is a fair reasonable discount can expect on Brezza

Hope should help !!
