Maruti Brezza, Grand Vitara or Toyota Hyryder: which is the most comfortable under Rs 15 lakh?
The MG Astor or even the Maruti Ertiga are a few other models to consider.

I am looking to buy a new car and my budget is Rs 15 lakh. My biggest priority is a comfortable ride that can filter out jerks from speed bumps and potholes. Is there a device or equipment that can be fitted to a car to significantly improve the quality of the ride? I also ask you to tell me the fuel efficiency figures of the cars you recommend.

Autocar India says: Since low-speed driving comfort is a priority, consider the Maruti Suzuki Brezza or the mild-hybrid variants of the Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder – all three built on the same platform. Suzuki. All of these SUVs expertly pass bad roads and absorb shocks well. Moreover, their suspension feels solid, providing confidence on bad roads.
In their mild manual hybrid, expect around 10.5-11kpl in the city, although this can vary depending on driving style and traffic conditions. Out of the three, choose which one you think is nicer and based on the equipment you get for Rs 15 lakh.
Among MPVs, the Ertiga is a great choice and it has the same engine-gearbox combination as the others. Another option worth considering is the MG Astor, tuned to provide excellent handling at low speeds thanks to a soft suspension setup. The fuel efficiency of the non-turbocharged 1.5 petrol engine will likely be on par with the aforementioned cars.
To improve ride comfort, there is no such device. However, experiment with different tire pressures (increase or decrease) from time to time until you find the right balance. You’ll be surprised how much difference tire pressure can make to ride quality.
