Which car should I choose in a budget of Rs 6.5 lakhs between Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz and Chevrolet Beat?

All the three cars are in a league of their own. For a price of Rs. 6.5 lakhs you would get a Baleno Delta or a Zeta whereas in a similar price you would be able to get the top end variants for Beat. For Honda Jazz on the other hand, you would be able to bag the base iVTEC E or the iDTEC E variants.
Baleno Delta comes with power windows, rear wiper with defogger, keyless entry, AC with climate control and other such superior features and its diesel variant is priced at Rs. 6.81 lakhs whereas petrol is Rs. 5.8 lakhs. Zeta petrol is the one that would fit your budget with its ex-showroom cost of Rs. 6.4 lakhs which would make the total a little higher than your upper limit. But at this higher price you get alloy wheels, front fog lamps and other such enhancements. For Baleno petrol this figure is 21.4kmpl whereas for diesel it is 27.4kmpl. Honda Jazz on the other hand will offer a power steering and ABS/EBD which is standard in Baleno as well along with an iDTEC/iVTEC engine. The fuel mileage offered is 27.3kmpl and 18.7kmpl respectively.
Coming to Chevrolet Beat, you get a fuel efficiency of 25.44kmpl in diesel and 17.8kmpl with petrol. Here you get the top model in your budget whether diesel or petrol. This comes with power steering, power windows, air-conditioning, front fog lamps, rear window defogger and washer with wiper, ABS, airbags, crash sensor and many other such things.
Personally, Jazz or Baleno would definitely be a pick but in your budget if you can get a top model for Beat, that would be better than getting the lower end models for the other two.
