The top-spec Ameo Highline Plus diesel is available at Rs 9, 99,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Maruti Suzuki Dzire has always been a considerable contributor to overall sales for the India’s largest carmaker. Interestingly, the five-speed AMT is available in petrol ZXI Plus as well as diesel ZDI Plus variants. The petrol version is powered by a 1.2-litre engine that generates 82bhp of power at 6000rpm and 113Nm of torque at 4200rpm. The diesel variant, on the other hand, is powered by a 1.3-litre engine that generates 74bhp of power at 4000rpm and 190Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. Speaking of features, it gets climate control, reverse camera, tilt steering, electrically adjustable mirrors and a touchscreen infotainment system.

The petrol top-spec automatic is priced at Rs 6,73,158 and the diesel version is priced at Rs 9,39,084 (Both ex-showroom, Delhi).

The recently introduced Ford Aspire is one of the most popular choices in the compact sedan space. However, Aspire Titanium petrol variant is the only one to be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission. The petrol variant is powered by a 1.5-litre engine that generates 110bhp of power at 6300rpm and 136Nm of torque 4250rpm.
