We are looking to buy a compact automatic car and are confused about whether to opt for a premium hatchback (Maruti Swift, Baleno, Hyundai i20) or a compact SUV (Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite). I’m aware about the types of automatics offered but we are looking for the best buy out of the lot.

If you can stretch your budget, we would suggest you go for the Sonet. The higher variants are pricey but it’s the best compact SUV on the market today. The Magnite and Kiger are great value-for-money options and have a more spacious back seat than the Sonet, but they are not as well equipped and nor do they drive as well as the Kia. Overall, we would recommend a compact SUV as it offers all the virtues of a hatchback and a lot more practicality too.
