Nowadays cars have become an absolute necessity rather than just being a luxury. And travelling with family, especially with kids and luggage can be tiresome if you don’t have the right car. It makes sense to opt for good cars which have advanced safety features and plenty of passenger room, while still offering the driving dynamics to make your commute that much more enjoyable. People who count more on style will surely prefer a feature rich sedan over a simple hatchback. Maruti Swift Dzire, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Honda Amaze, Toyota Etios, Renault Scala, Fiat Linea, Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid and the latest Maruti Ciaz and Tata Zest are the popular choices here. Of these, Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire is considered the best sedan for travelling with family, closely followed by Honda City in terms of efficiency, spaciousness and affordability. The new comer Ciaz is also rapidly getting popular.
Maruti Swift Dzire is blessed with adorable looks, superb safety features, modern technology, fuel efficiency and practical features and moreover it comes at a budgeted price. The Dzire model seen today is the face-lifted one in the year 2010. Yet again a new model is ready to be launched soon. The cabin space will be bigger now with more leg room and knee room. The rear seats can be folded if more space is needed for luggage. The new Maruti Dzire is a features laden car and the ones like automatic climate control, child locks, integrated audio system with USB/CD/AM/FM Radio, USB and Aux-input, ABS-EBD and door ajar warning etc. are of great importance while travelling along with family. It is available in both petrol and diesel engine options and is much more affordable than most of its rivals in this segment. Hassle free ownership and a number of service outlets make the Dzire even more desirable.
Honda City, which debuted in India in 1998, is one of the most successful and popular mid-size sedans around. Though pretty old now, Honda City has not lost any of its charm. The new City will be powered by the 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines. The new City diesel is India’s most fuel efficient car in its segment with an impressive mileage of 26 kmpl. Honda gives its passengers a more premium, spacious and comfortable cabin. It also has an impressive boot space of nearly 500 litres. The use of touch screen interface for the stereo, an information rich instrument cluster and air on functioning will make the journey now more enjoyable. The new City also gets an arm rest and rear AC vents for the rear passengers. Those who count more on performance, handling and mileage can certainly go for the City.
