Buying a diesel-automatic compact SUV

4th Aug 2020 8:00 am

I want a car that offers a good driving experience, is value-for -money and has good mileage. I've shortlisted the Mahindra XUV300, the Tata Nexon and the Maruti Vitara Brezza.

I am planning to buy a diesel- automatic car but I am confused between three models – the Mahindra XUV300 AMT, the Tata Nexon AMT and the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza AMT. Which car has good driving experience, a value-for-money package and good mileage?

The Vitara Brezza is no longer being sold with a diesel engine so your choice narrows down to the XUV300 and the Nexon diesel AMTs. Between the two, the XUV300 offers a more spacious cabin, better quality interiors and

a far superior diesel engine. In fact, the XUV300’s 1.5 diesel is one of the best around. The Nexon has a bigger boot, better ride and handling and  is cheaper. However, assuming that you are going to be buying the car for convenience, the XUV300 is easier to drive and overall the better choice.
