I have to buy my first car. Which one should I buy from between tata Tiago and Maruti Baleno?

Tata Tiago is an entry level vehicle where is Maruti Baleno is a little upmarket in comparison. Even in terms of price, Baleno is more expensive than Tiago. Baleno has better equipment, more space and the assurance of Maruti whereas Tata Tiago also offers very good quality interiors but you can see old knobs and poor finishing around the cabin at times. Both cars drive well but Maruti Baleno will definitely give you a more pleasant feel.
You should test drive both cars and get a hands-on experience as to which vehicle do you like better. Maruti will definitely be a hassle free ownership but this particular Tata vehicle is also not bad. For your first car you should also consider Maruti Swift. It is a vehicle that is excellent and more pleasnt to drive than most of the others in the segment. Also, it is practically maintenance free and the service network and cheaper spare part costs etc. won't give you much to complaint about either.
