I plan to purchase new car but the variety of options are confusing me. My daily run is 80km in the city, and is around 700km a month on the Konkan NH17 highway. My priorities are comfort, ride quality and handling. Mileage isn’t a concern. My budget is close to Rs 12 lakh. I am open to sedans as well as sub-four-metre crossovers.

AAA The Ford EcoSport S is your best option. It is very comfortable, offers brilliant handling and comes with terrific performance courtesy its famed EcoBoost turbo-petrol engine. It’s also perfect for NH17 as the ground clearance is good enough to tackle all the speed breakers and rough patches.
