I have a budget of 10-12 lakhs. I want to buy an automatic car but I don't want to go for AMT transmission.

My options are:
Amaze vx cvt
Ciaz delta at
Breeza vxi at

I am ok with sedan or c-suv.

Since my daily driving is 45 km, mileage is a preference for me. Also, since I am from Ahmedabad, the summers last for 6 months. Thus cooling is also important.

Please suggest me which option should I prefer? Or do you suggest something apart from the above three options?

Dear Aayush,

Greetings !!
See if you seek Fuel Efficiency as important criteria and contemplating a choice in between Sedan and Compact SUV then basis price range
> Maruti Ciaz Delta AT is the most fuel efficient one as of now
followed next is
> Nissan Magnite CVT & Renault Kiger CVT
> Maruti Brezza Automatic
> Upcoming Maruti Fronx Turbo Automatic

Honda Amaze Mileage although acceptable, but will still fall lower than above cars.

Coming to Details as specific
If you have majority of Usage within city condition then Maruti Ciaz Zeta Automatic Price in Gujarat after dealer end discounts and negotiations will fall just around 12 Lakh and be assured is a
a) Great all round comfort oriented car
b) Aircon effectiveness is good with rear ac vents and Zeta Model gets rear sunshade too
c) Relaxed drive, comfort, lot of space, has all essential features (except live navigation and touchscreen)
d) Mileage perspective is great too - with fact that center of gravity is relative lower as against SUV and tyres not as wide as SUV (R15 185/65 tyres) - end mileage would be better as against SUV and suspension will feel more comfort oriented

Some cons too
1. Not exciting to drive on high speed
2. 4 Speed Automatic is no fun, best for relaxed drive

Now when you compare Ciaz Automatic against Brezza Vxi Automatic
Brezza is well tuned for city roads too. Suspension is great to take on relative bad roads in city at ease
Now gets rear ac vents too
In terms of features
> Has Touchscreen with Live Navigation (camera can be added as accessory)
> More Safer car with superior build
> Ability to clear bad roads of city at relative ease
> Now available with 6 Speed Automatic (feels better in auto gear shift change in city use)

> Rear Seat Space not as comfy as Ciaz (due to recline angle not as good and legroom is just ok)
> Price where Brezza Automatic priced almost 2 Lakh higher in on road over its Manual one

End Mileage would be at par too due to SHVS Tech
But pls experience rear seat as this may appear deal breaker to many due to relative upright rear seat, not as

Renault Kiger
Well all things are good, but is important to highlight the negatives first
> Ergonomics - which seems just out of context and same were there in Duster too, and now feels in Kiger
> Noisier Engine - higher road noise felt in cabin
> Interior Quality, fit, finish feels mediocre by the kind of price paid for the car and then Renault after sales service experience which scores very low

But from performance, suspension, Fully loaded features, Safety, Drive, Steering feedback - will love this car

Nissan Magnite: To view Kiger as a product is better than Magnite, cant really recommend Nissan due to vague steering and even more thin network

Upcoming Fronx: Well car interiors feels borrowed from Baleno and exteriors from Grand Vitara
Suspension as claimed by OEM is modified on lines of as what seen in GRand Vitara
But real world performance in terms of
> 1 Litre Turbo Engine lag or pickup
> Suspension / Handling
> Mileage figures

still in unknown zone
Car is there at Nexa counters now - you may check for a feel factor.

If your ride is majorly in city and gives higher priority to rear seat space and comfort oriented suspension then Ciaz Automatic in Sedan is best pick.

Else if you care for a car with higher ground clearance, but this upright rear seats are not deal breaker (which you need to check personally with family) then Brezza Automatic is impressive choice

and if ready to wait a bit and seek combination of Space factor, better rear seat recline angle and yet Raised GC Element - Upcoming Fronx Zeta Automatic would be worth a wait

May check out
