In terms of equipment however, there are a lot of additions. So how does it stack up against the rest of pack, we find out.
All cars are priced attractively, however, it's the Dzire that's most attractive. Even the base variant of the car gets features like ABS, EBD, two airbags, ISOFIX etc. The Dzire is the widest, the Tigor has the best ground clearance, while in terms of length, all are close to four meters.
The new Xcent offer a more powerful (1.2 litre) diesel motor. Tigor does not offer automatic as yet, while there AMT as well as manual with Dzire and you get it with both the engine choices, making it the most versatile package. Xcent offers a traditional automatic with petrol along with the manual option.
