Hi,

Thanks for sharing details.
Considering average monthly running (80 Kms a day) - a Diesel car is best referred
Basis preference specified for Automatic Transmission along with safety as important preference in Sedan or SUV Segment - well closest match to your need is Honda Amaze S Diesel Automatic.

However - for owning same have to exceed in budget by approx Rs 1 Lakh as car on road price in Chennai, post dealer end discounts is Rs 10 Lakh. But be assured that Amaze Diesel Automatic is what near excellent choice for need, requirement

> 4 Star Safety rated in NCAP Rating (
> 1.5 Litre Diesel Engine with 80 PS Power still has lot of grunt for smooth pickup as checked through Amaze Diesel CVT Owner and personally driven wherein car has no issues in performance aspect if remain gentle on accelerator
> As going to use it for mix of city and highway - Rear seat are pretty comfy and boot space is impressive
> Suspension is stiffened up in Diesel and be assured that Amaze Diesel CVT perform well on highway (although steering feedback yes is light enough for highway perpsective)
> Grip levels well with 14 Inch Wheels R14 175/65 is average

Its like this has to understand that been steering feedback and grip levels are average on higher speed, thus recommended to not to go beyond 100 Kmph and restrict speed under same.

Been your average monthly running is on higher side, expect fuel efficiency of 15 to 16 Kmpl in city and 20 Kmpl+ on highway.

Only other car in Sedan Segment is Aura AMT - but be assured Amaze feels a lot better basis
> Transmission
> Higher capacity engine
> Proven NCAP Rating

If considering Diesel SUV / crossover - well Tata Nexon XMA AMT Diesel is closest match - but On road price will touch in close to 12 Lakh - so not recommending it

Basis, need requirement - consider in for Honda Amaze S CVT Diesel by taking budget to around Rs 10 Lakh
Its the best buy

Hope should help !!
