I will suggest you not to consider. Only thing i hate about MS(Maruti-Suzuki) is they are using 1.3 Litre Fiet sourced Diesel engine in all their premium segments car. For instance for ciaz there will be some initial lag below 2000RPM so i say first look for the engine. For the body weight ratio the engine of ciaz is not enough.Baleno is nice Car.
My eyes are set on Ciaz and Honda City
Honda City is a good car but if your considering about diesel engine then test drive the new Verna from hyundai. I am sure you will like it.
P.S. I am also looking for new Car preferably compact SUV
