    My wife and I are looking to bring home our first car, and after extensive research, we've shortlisted the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara Sigma MT, which costs Rs 13 lakh in my city (Chennai). Since we've read mixed reviews regarding the car's performance, could you throw some light on whether it is a good option? The car will be used only within the city, and we're both practically new drivers.

    Autocar India says: For the price, the Maruti Grand Vitara Sigma MT delivers stellar value. Speaking of the performance, the 1.5-litre petrol engine is tuned towards maximising fuel efficiency rather than outright performance, so you'll be yearning for stronger pulling power on the open road. However, for your usage, which is likely to include leisurely weekend outings, and intra-city commute, the Grand Vitara's petrol feels adequate. Paired with a light clutch and a smooth gearbox, it is very easy to drive. So as per your requirements, it is a good buy.
