Hyundai i10 vs Beat vs figo

As i was planning to buy a new car with budget around 4 lacs, i did some market research, test drives etc and today i am going to sahre my experience with you.
In the begining i was thinking of buying Ford figo, dealer told be that this particular model of ford is not expensive to maintain, so i took a test drive of ford figo.Result was below expectataion, I did not get the acceleration that i was expection from a ford car. It was a disappointment.
Then i turned to BEAT, As per the advertisement it should be a powerful car with a 1200CC engine but when i took the test drive all my expectations were crushed. I again did not feel acceleration as expected and it was like figo.
Then finally i turned to Hyundai i10 1.1 model era, As i already has a Santro so i am very satisfied with the service and product quality. i 10 was never in my list but i took its test drive and believe me it was very satisfying to drive i10, it has a good acceleration and milage with it.
It wasnt even very costly, era model has AC/power stearing/power window(front) and cost similar to figo or beat.
Finally i bought a i10 era 1.1 model.
If you are planning to buy a new samll car then i suggest you always take a test drive and try i10 its one of the best in the market.
