Hi Team,
I am planning to purchase a new Compact SUV in the month of June or July from Bangalore. Budget is 13 to 13.5L
List of things
1. Best powerful Engine (Preferably Turbo) no lag during overtaking with Manual transmission (No iMT/Automatic)
2. Active and passive safety feature
3. Good head light throw during night so that when opposite vehicles comes with high beam i should be able to see road
4. Good braking on road
5. Alloy wheels company fitted
6. Drive in city bad roads
7. Monthly running 100 to 300Kms in (80% city and 20% highway)
8. If i keep vehicle unused for few days there should not be any issues in car.
9. Ready to purchase it from Bangalore or Ernakulam (Kerala)
10. Insurance what components i need to consider on purchasing and what components on purchasing from different city

Test drive taken for Venue - Had a postive feedback
Need to take for Nexon and Magnite
XUV 300 not taking since its boot very small
Sonet turbo engine is not available in Manual Transmission

This is my first car after marriage and driving since 2005

Dear Edwin,

Greetings !!

Considering fact that
> Karnataka has highest road tax. you will end up paying almost 2 Lakh as road tax on a car which is priced at Rs 11 Lakh. (Kerala has 50K lower tax than Karnataka)
> Insurance and other ancilliary charges

Eventually if you have budget of 13.5 Lakh on road - it implies that car with exshowroom price of 11 Lakh will come in your budget
As i read your requirement,
To view Magnite :
> Not at all exciting in pickup as in Venue
> Does not have the kind of steering feedback as in Venue
> No Space after left foot to relax
> Lacks advanced safety of side & curtain airbags
> Lacks Handling Aspect, Fit and Finish as in Venue

To view - Venue Sx Option is a notch better choice as against Magnite

For Tata Nexon :- Although is a great pick basis
> 5 Star Safety Rating
> Spacious Cabin
> Sports Mode is fun to drive

But, to view basis requirement : Best buy is Hyundai Venue Sx Option
> Punchy Power Performance with 120 PS Power and 172 NM Torque due to light body weight is more fun and exciting to drive as against Nexon. Nexon is somewhat bulky, and mostly feel linear in city and good power delivery in sports mode, but Venue is definite more exciting product

> Highest active and passive safety - ABS with EBD, 6 Airbags, ESP, Hill Hold Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, TPMS

> Brakes feel best across hyundai cars, better than even Creta

> Steering feedback and handling too feel better than Hyundai Cars

> Very reliable product, low after sales service cost

However, to disclaim
> Light set up is Halogen Projector and would call it average. May consider upgrading headlights to HID Bulbs

For Insurance
Recommended to check out from local dealership in your city of preferred insurance players and then buy policy online
For Policy Covers - Insurance Policy Cover

Hope should help !!
