Some people want all-out performance from their cars, practicality be damned.

Other people want their cars to be spacious, frugal and a warm and inviting place to be in.

If you are part of the latter, this could very well be the car you've been waiting for.

The Sunny is built inside-out. That becomes obvious the minute you open those doors and get into the cabin.

For those who prefer to drive, the smart looking dashboard boasts intelligent design and relatively good quality plastic bits.

The ride quality is comfortable, tending towards the softer side, with the trade-off being that handling is a bit on the soft side as well. The Manza makes a strong case for itself as a value for money offering.

Prices start at Rs 515,000, ex-showroom, Mumbai.

The petrol engine makes the Etios a sprightly performer, and the diesel is for those with practicality and efficiency in mind; ride and handling are rather good as well.

The only downside with the Etios is the quality of its interiors.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire

People have voted for the Dzire with their cheque books.

With a sweet, 1.2-litre petrol engine and a brilliant 1.3-litre diesel powerplant, the Dzire is a great buy in either variant.

The interior has nothing special to offer, but it is well built and finished, with good head and leg room for four passengers.

This is a light car, with fairly nimble handling, and ride quality is good as well.

The car is now showing its age, and some sort of update would certainly help; in its current form, a lot of people are turned off by its slightly gawky design.

A new Dzire is expected next year, but it remains to be seen whether it will replace the current car or co-exist with it in the model lineup.

Prices start at Rs 518,000, ex-showroom, Mumbai.
