I am confused on whether to buy a full size mid suv from MG as Astor Sprint base model and Maruti Brezza Vxi Petrol. Which is more value for money as a primary SUV Car in 11 Lakh Budget in Delhi

Hello Pramod ji,

Greetings !!

See MG Astor at 9.98 Lakh good excellent value for money basis the price point at which is offered with a factor of
a. Full Size SUV in consideration
b. MG Astor (as based on Zs) scored impressive in Euro NCAP safety rating as 4 star
c. Premium Interiors feels
d. Looks, Designing, Road Presence
e. Bigger Boot Space at 448 Litres
e. Despite base model you get bigger 10.1 Inch Touchscreen, Rear AC, LED Headlights, ESP, Hill Hold Assist, Hill Descent too

But biggest con also lies in fact that
a. MG Astor has significantly lower mileage as against not only Brezza in Compact SUV but even other Mid SUV. Can expect single digit mileage in real world conditions in day to day city usage

b. Petrol Engine although is 1.5 Litre with 110 PS Power and 144 NM Torque and on papers looks better against Brezza having 103 PS Power and 138 NM Torque, but Astor has near 10% higher kerb weight against Brezza and this translates in slight medicore pickup performance as against Brezza Pickup response. Even low end performannce feels mediocre as against Brezza - kind of tune up done by Maruti Suzuki at low end of Brezza is commendable

c. Although Engine Noise, harshness feels well controlled but go beyond 80 Kmph speed - can expect relative noisier engine as against Brezza

d. Rear Seat under-thigh support is mediocre in both Brezza and Astor. Despite of buying a 4.3m SUV - you really wont find too much difference in rear seat comfort, legroom in Brezza and Astor. Looks like MG focussed on giving bigger boot instead of increasing cabin space.

So Point is
However good MG Astor feels in premium interiors, features, styling, road presence but biggest downside lies in Engine where
a. Performance feels mediocre
b. Fuel Efficiency can be low
c. Engine Noise, Harshness is higher on high speed
d. Rear Seat Space do not justify in the feel of Mid SUV Car

So - pls test drive. if Engine pickup, mileage is not a deal breaker then in short MG Astor Sprint can be excellent value, else opt for Brezza Vxi.
