I own a 2011 Alto LXI and I'm planning to upgrade to a new car. My budget is around 8-8.5L. I use the car for daily driving around the city and occasional highway drives. I clock around 10000kms per year. Hence I think the petrol engine better for my requirement. I have shortlisted some cars. They are Maruti Swift, Ford Freestyle and Hyundai Grand i10.
My requirements are, the car should be reliable with minimum maintenance, should be built well (good build quality), it should be comfortable for daily driving and occasional highway drives and a good resale value. I also give priority to safety features. I live in a town where the road conditions aren't that good and they are uneven in some places.
Please help me to choose one car among these which fits my requirement and also the reason behind the selection. I have heard that the exterior build quality of the new swift is not up to the mark. A minor impact can cause a big damage. Is it true? and any news about 3rd generation Figo?
Waiting for your reply!!!
