i20 vs Altroz vs Baleno Rear Seat Space, Comfort Comparison
5 Seater Premium Hatchback Car with Best Rear Seat Comfort - New 2020 Hyundai i20 vs Tata Altroz vs Maruti Suzuki Baleno Rear Seat Space Comparison Review
Space is a big factor which plays an important part in the decision making when it comes to buying a new car. In India, we tend to travel with our family and friends more so space is very important. When buying a premium hatchback the requirement for space is even more important than say an entry-level hatch. So here is a rear seat comparison between the new i20 from Hyundai alongside the Baleno and the Altroz of course.
New Hyundai i20 Rear Seat Review
The new i20 from Hyundai is longer and also one of the big changes in the wheelbase which has been extended further. In this class of cars, the i20 has the longest wheelbase at 2580mm. That last part is very crucial as that gives the i20 an edge. The previous i20 was anyway one of the best premium hatchbacks in terms of space or comfort but the new tales are one level higher. Legroom is brilliant not just for a hatchback but also when compared to many compact SUVs, the new i20 beats it for space. Even very tall persons do not have any problem with the legroom on offer. Plus the new i20 is wider and that means there is space to sit in the middle plus there is no huge tunnel also. The width and space make the new i20 a big winner in the rear seat space department. You also get rear ac vents and a charging point. Do note that it gets a sunroof and that makes the cabin airy. You do sit a bit lower with slightly less thigh support however no doubt it is the most spacious in its class.
Tata Altroz Rear Seat Review
The doors of the Altroz open the widest and make for easy access plus getting in and out. However once inside the room here is not as big as the new i20. The wheelbase of the Altroz is the least in this comparison since it has a wheelbase of 2501mm. As a result, you do not have the same legroom but the width is good plus the completely flat floor is also nice which helps seating three more comfortable for the middle passenger. It is also wider than the Baleno and just a bit less than the i20 hence seating three like the i20 is no issue. There is enough room for your knees and you are not sat low with good thigh support coming in. The seats are near the same in comfort levels when compared to the new i20 but there is no sunroof to make the cabin airy. You do get rear ac vents and a charging point like the new i20 though.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno Rear Seat Review
The Baleno also has a long wheelbase plus also with the new i20 has very good legroom. In terms of wheelbase, the Baleno is less than the i20 but more than the Altroz at 2520mm. The legroom is very good and tall passengers will not find any problem. The cabin also feels airy despite no sunroof and a pure black interior. It also however misses out on rear ac vents which is a big miss. But while the legroom is good, the headroom could have been better and the seats lack a bit of comfort when compared with the Altroz and i20. The seats are a bit flat and lack the cushion a bit but they are mounted a bit higher hence do very well on the thigh support factor. In terms of width, the Baleno is the least wide and the shoulder room is a bit compromised for the middle passenger.
Verdict - 5 Seater Premium Hatchback Car under Rs 10 lakh with Best Rear Seat Comfort in India
All three offer very good space and make for a good choice but the new i20 is the one with the largest space and also the premium hatchback that feels the widest. So for being chauffeured around and for taking your family for long drives, the new i20 is the best though both the Baleno and the Altroz do offer good enough space and are also about Rs 1 lakh cheaper.
