Dear Avinash ji,
Hi. Greetings !!
As specified the core requirement with
a) Near Maximum usage in city conditions of Bangalore in Bumper to Bumper Traffic
b) Seating Comfort for 4
c) Hassle Free, Peace of mind ownership
Let me tell you some pointers which will assist in
1. Try to avoid in Turbo Charged Petrol Engine. Though they are fun in mid range, but at low speed some lag definite felt
In terms of Skoda Kushaq - a great all rounder with superb mid range and impressive high speed steering feedback
but at low speed some lag is there
Let me disclaim that this lag is beautifully masked to an extent in Automatic transmission (as otherwise felt in Manual) - but at times felt at sub 1500 rpm and with stiffer suspension - this is not the best buy for traffic conditions as specified.
2. MG Astor - although a great buy in terms of features, interiors but when it comes to
a) Fuel Efficiency
Not the best. Mileage actually is on the lowest side in across Mid SUV Segment Petrol cars and in traffic conditions as specified -
Secondly - not as comfort oriented as what felt in sibling MG Hector or if in similar segment as Hyundai Creta
3. Coming to Seltos & Creta - pick is Creta IVT with solo reason
a) Suspension which feels more comfort oriented in city use as against stiffer one in Seltos
b) Rear Seat Comfort with head support is superior with better under-thigh support as against Seltos
Seltos feels more stable and fun on highway, but if its city use - Creta is the default pick
Good Part is that Creta is now upgraded with additional safety specs in Creta Sx IVT
with 6 Airbags, All 4 Disc Brakes and from usage as specified with
a) Bumper to Bumper use
d) Peace of mind ownership
e) Very refined engine and Hyundai scores very high on reliability aspect of engine, transmission.,
a great all round buy. For having peace of mind - i suggest to Extend Warranty to 7 yr option which is one of the longest one as available, although may found cost steep at Rs 50K but highly recommended to cover any mechanical parts
Rest Hyundai service experience is at par with the best and can expect superior ownership experience too.
Thats the best buy basis need as specified, may check.
