hi I want buy a car
which should I buy sedan or compact suv
I want and like Sedan but trend shows Campact SUV
I have to drive state highways and off roads . little bit off road on regular basis
I want spacious high comfort and safety car at least 1.5 L diesel engine
high control very good suspension.
I want and like luxury brand car as I use Indigo for 6 six years now I am tired of it.
fuel efficiency should at least 16 to 20 KMPL

if I go for value efficiency not getting luxury brand.
wants sedan for more space comfort n social status but fear of future as SUVs are trending.
if I go for used car but fear looting
what to do ?
My budget
for used car not more than 4 to 5 lakh (for extremely good condition)
and for new car 12 to 15 lakh
on finance
i took a test dirve friends CRETA top model not feel speacy .
very little space for driver it's feel like middle passenger sitting in back seat.
BUT in feature, it is good.

Dear Dipak ji,

Greetings !!

SUV are trend as
> Gives confidence to drive with raised seating and better all round visibility
> Wider tyres ensures superior grip
> Raised Ground clearance ensure clearance of bad roads

But be assured Sedan cars as having
> Lower center of gravity hence are more stable
> Feels more spacious against lot
> Yes with relative light body weight, lesser GC and relative not as wider tyres - fuel efficiency is better

If you seek Space, Seating Comfort, Features then a Diesel Sedan can offer superior experience and recommended picks are

1. Honda Amaze Vx Diesel:
> Very lively in 1.5 Litre Diesel Engine. Will love in experience of Honda IDtec Diesel Engine in performance and power delivery
> Lot of space in cabin (better than any compact SUV) with large 420 Litre Boot Space
> Unlike Petrol, Diesel suspension is stiffened and this car offers good mix of stability, grip and handling experience (although yes steering dynamics are not the best but still can consider okay)
> Very Fuel Efficient - better than any SUV in class. can expect 17 kmpl in city condition with a mileage which can go to 21 to 22 kmpl on highway
> As Amaze Vx is top of line - can experience fully loaded features - LED Projector, LED Fog Light, Push Ignition, Cruise Control, Rear View Camera, Alloy Wheels, Touchscreen with Android Auto, Remote Boot Open, LED DRL

This is certainly a great choice in new car segment basis requirement of
> Performance
> Space
> Features
> Reliability
> Fuel Efficiency
> 4 Star Safety Rated Car

You just dont need to check anywhere else, as a product is superior value pick over many compact SUV

Alternate choice
2. Mahindra XUV300 W8 Option Diesel:

If you seek SUV Car with
> Powerhouse performance, XUV300 Diesel offers 300 NM Torque
> 5 Star Build Quality, Advanced Safety
> Possibly the most spacious SUV Car in class its offered
> Fully Loaded Lifestyle features including Sunroof
> A Car which drive well, very capable performance and suspension tuned towards comfort

May check out fully loaded XUV300 W8 Option Diesel

Buying a Used Car: Well the most important criteria in selecting a used car is condition of vehicle
Are you getting any specific which comes with
> Service history
> Well Maintained condtion

My Point is if you have budget on your side and seek reliability with fully loaded features - its better to consider in New Car and cars like
> Amaze Vx Diesel - On road around 12 Lakh
> Mahindra XUV300 W8 Option Diesel - On road around 15 Lakh

can be great picks in new car segment matching requirement preferences

Hope should help !!

Honda AMaze is what a budget car.
This car is best for someone in budget of 9 to 11 Lakh at max and having maximum usage in city drive

Although a great choice for city use but We wont recommend this car for highway use basis
> Steering feedback
> Soft side suspension
