I am Mayur from Panipat (Delhi NCR), planning to buy a car. My monthly run is around1500 km mostly from home to office (city + highway). My budget is 9lakhs (max- On-road price).  And I earlier owned a Baleno for 5 years.
My requirements
Good build quality. Mileage.
Performance Rear-seat comfort
Reliable for next 7-8 years.

I am a little bit confused about choosing between the 4 cars below.

1. VW Polo 1 lt TSI  Comfortline: I like the performance of this car very much but the only concern for Polo is rear-seat space

2. Tata Altroz
Petrol: My only concern for Tata Altroz is that I didn't like the performance of the petrol engine
Diesel: I like the performance of Altroz diesel engine. As my location is Delhi NCR my concern is the life of a diesel engine that is only 10 years and will not get the resale value as I am planning to own the car for at least 7-8 years.

3. Skoda Rapid:I like the overall package of Rapid Rider and Rider plus but Skoda Rapid is going to be discontinued next year. And the service center is min 30 km from my location.Since Rider and Rider plus models are not available in my location. So, I contacted the Delhi Skoda dealer, they have offered me Rapid Rider but they are not delivering without ceramic coating for which they are charging Rs 30K.

4. Honda Amaze Petrol: I like the rear space and comfort of the car but didn't like the handling and performance of the car.

Please help me decide on the same.

Greetings !!

Yes you are fair correct in observation about
> Polo Space - which does not match in requirement
> Altroz Petrol - which does not offer performance
> Altroz Diesel - Life of diesel car in Delhi . NCR
> Rapid - service network and fact that model to be discontinued next year. But if dealer compelling for 30K Ceramic and you feel like going for it - let know will share way to get same waived.
> Amaze - yes steering and suspension are a downpoint for any driving enthusiast

Alternatively, recommended you to check out Maruti Vitara Brezza Lxi Model and upgrade with accessories with reasons
> 1.5 Litre Petrol Engine has lot of grunt at low end
> Suspension is tuned towards comfort oriented side
> Unlike other Maruti Suzuki cars - Brezza comes with 4 star safety rating and better build
> Reliable for peace of mind and superior ownership factor

Although yes you wont find yourself making an upgrade basis
> Interior Aesthetic
> Plastic Quality
> Basic features set (having said basic means all essential - AC, Power steering, all 4 power window, music system, electric ORVM, Remote lock)
> Head rest missing on rear seat (although possible to get head restrainst fitted in - there are forum posts related to same)

But is a product which is a great value perspective at the price point in which is available
You can use money to upgrade with alloys, rear headrest, front fog lights and touchscreen music system with rear view camera in your specified budget to make the car appeal enhance further

So, recommended to check out Maruti Vitara Brezza Lxi and upgrade with accessories to make the car more attarctive for superior value proposition in your budget

Hope should help !!
