I am considering buying a new hatchback. The two cars that I've homed in on are the Maruti Suzuki Baleno Delta 1.2 and the Ford Figo Titanium 1.2 Ti-VCT. Which is the better car?
The Baleno Delta and Figo Titanium petrol variants are priced similarly (with a difference of Rs 2,000 ex-Delhi). The Delta variant is one slot above the base Sigma while the Titanium is Ford's premium variant. The Ford only offers a few extra comfort features.
In terms of safety, both these car variants offer two airbags and ABS as standard. Only the Figo Titanium Plus gets six airbags. Features aside, the Baleno offers a better petrol motor, better feel from the gearbox, more cabin/boot space and is a segment higher. Resale value should be better too. Maruti Suzuki also offers a larger service network.
