Iâ€™m looking to buy a diesel automatic vehicle in the RsÂ 10-RsÂ 15 lakh bracket. The cars Iâ€™ve shortlisted are the Volkswagen Vento DSG, Hyundai Verna 1.6 AT and the Hyundai Creta 1.6 AT. The body style doesnâ€™t matter to me but the car has to be driver-oriented with a quality interior. I drive about 70km a day so good fuel efficiency is important too. Which one should I choose? Should I wait till the Auto Expo?
If youâ€™re looking at a car that will put a smile on your face every time you drive it, especially enthusiastically, then look no further than the Volkswagen Vento. It is one of the best handling cars in its segment today and offers the powerful 1.5-TDI motor mated to the quick shifting DSG. The Hyundai Verna scores in terms of comfort and a few extra features. The Creta offers the same Verna advantages in an SUV bodystyle so you get car like qualities in a vehicle with good presence and ground clearance. But the Hyundais arenâ€™t as involving as the Vento. The automatic transmission isnâ€™t as quick shifting either. Since the Auto Expo is just around the corner, we suggest you wait and decide.
