The Kia Seltos (Hyundai Creta too) is one car that offers a wide range of engines and transmissions. I don’t think any other single model offers 3 engines + 4 types of transmissions in the Indian auto ecosystem.
Coming to which could be better between the manual and the automatic, it falls back completely on which engine you’re looking to buy.
The Tata Altroz and Ford Freestyle are cars that don’t usually get compared head-on, but when you compare the prices – we understand, it does create confusion.
The better way to approach this confusion is to look at how these cars are different. All cars, just like regular products, have strengths and weaknesses. And compare them what you’re looking for in a car.
The Škoda Rapid and Honda City are cars that have an exclusive fan base for their attributes. The Rapid, from what I’ve seen, is an aspiring car for a lot of buyers. While these buyers may consider other cars like the Volkswagen Vento, they don’t usually look at the other brands. The Honda city buyer is more or less fixed about the Honda City, unless something really puts them off about the car or the car doesn’t have what they want.
