Which car should I buy between Elite i20 and Baleno 1.2?

I would suggest you for Baleno 1.2, although both cars are powered by 1.2 liter DOHC engine and hence have same power and torque figures but the claimed mileage of Baleno 21.4 kmpl compare to 18.6 kmpl of Elite i20. Talking about the drivability, i20 is soft sprung while Baleno on the other hand is having hard suspension which offers better handling and high speed stability.
When it comes to looks, i20 have slight edge over Baleno, however Baleno also looks impressive. Space is almost equal in both cars, but Baleno offers better boot space. Talking about features, so even the base model of Baleno features ABS, EBD and airbags as standard at a more affordable price. Maintenance cost of Baleno is comparatively low and Maruti Suzuki cars also have better resale value than Hyundai.
So, this was my opinion, I advise you to take a test drive of both cars to experience the ride quality yourself and make your choice as per your need & preference.
