Dear Alok ji,


Of the given choices, pls find pros n cons

Toyota Urban Cruiser High Automatic
> Biggest USP is Convenience to drive as against other 2 cars which are Manual Transmission. Although on papers is 4 speed Automatic Transmission and is outdated, but in real world Maruti did a wonderful job in this for offering stress free convenient drive in day to day city usage and yet in a fuel efficient way.
> 4 Star Build Quality and probven by Global NCAO
> Comfort Oriented Suspension and balanced ride, handling within city
> Reliable, Low Maintenance and backed by Toyota as brand
> Loaded with almost all modern age necessary features - Auto climate, Touchscreen, LED Projector, Alloys, Touchscreen etc (camera can be added as accessory with display in touchscreen)

> Interiors are outdated
> Plastic Quality, Button Quality is medicore
> Rear Seat are placed relative in upright way
> Steering wheel, MID Instrument cluster looks outdated

Despite spending in 13 Lakh - you wont get a feel of car worth 13 Lakh except added convenience part

Kia Seltos HTK and Hyundai Creta Ex
Basis requirement of maximum usage within city - Creta is a better buy basis
> Comfort oriented soft suspension which is ideal in city use (Seltos has stiffer suspension for superior highway dynamics)
> Relative Light Steering for ease (Seltos has added weight for superior highway)
> Seats has marginal better underthigh support on rear seat

Creta Is a car which can offer superior comfort and a premium experience factor
Although Seltos yes may looks slight more stylish but Creta will end up to be more comfortable

Although yes car prices On road are now higher to extent of 1.5 Lakh as against prices in 2020 March when car was launched. But despite of same - you can experience in a car which drives
> Fair decent with comfort and plush drive
> 1.5 Litre Petrol engine has lot of grunt for day to day city use
> Aesthetics, Fit and Finish feels premium over Urban Cruiser
> Despite of Manual Transmission - light clutch, light steering, sleek gear shift, comfort oriented ride - be assured you wont have complaints in drive

Hyundai after sales service network and now with 5 year wonder warranty makes it a great choice

Final recommendation
Although Urband cruiser is impressive - but spending 13 Lakh on a car with such poor interior, plastic and outdated steering MID takes away premium feel

To view - Hyundai Creta Ex Petrol can be the best pick for need specified. Although is a Manual Transmission - but despite of same - is very easy and convenient car to drive in. Will likely love in response feedback of the car and is our recommended pick

Hope should help !!
