  1. I appreciate your work very much .u have told correct and i quite liked the baleno texts😁Everything is just perfectly said until i read the honda city one. U know ciaz is thw longest and the car with the longest wheelbase.so its the car in c2 segment which offers the best leg room.so why mention honda city.??

    • Hi Tarun
      First of all, thank you for appreciating my hard work. I know Ciaz is a really good car and would be a perfect fit in the list. Considering I was mentioning Maruti Suzuki a lot, I decided to mention City for the sedan segment just to have some variety in the article!
      Thanks for commenting.
      Stay pinned!

  2. Please advise me for purchase of car between ignis and baleno. i am little confused. from all front from leg room to boot space, hight etc.

    • Hi Kandarpa,
      Maruti Suzuki Baleno is for sure a better option when legroom, boot space or height is concerned. The Baleno also offers a CVT transmission while the Ignis offers an AMT only. But when the power to weight ratio is concerned, Ignis is a better option as both the cars offer the same engine. The Baleno has a 1.2-litre DualJet, Dual VVT engine as an option which offers 66hp of power, 5hp more than the 1.2-litre VVT offered as the standard on both the cars. The last part is the price. Maruti Suzuki Baleno base variant (Sigma Petrol) will cost ₹5,63,602 while the Sigma variant for Ignis costs ₹4,89,320 (prices are ex-showroom Delhi). If you ask us, Baleno has more to offer for sure. Do let us know your choice!

    • Hi Jayaraj,

      You can surely go for Nissan Magnite or the Renault Triber under this price range. Both of the cars offer a good package of features and powertrain options. Also, Magnite scored a 4-star rating at the ASEAN NCAP rating.

  3. Hi Ritvik, thanks for the information. I am planning buy an SUV with good features and large boot, budget around 17-18 lakhs (is there a cheaper option!). Am considering Seltos htx petrol (petrol as I don’t drive much).
    Not considering Creta, only because of long wait.

    What you think of my choice and other model suggestions?

    Also worried about leg space hump, is it too humpy in Seltos, compared to other SUVs, or any better option considering this point?
