rhythm. You could have a look at Tata zest diesel. I think it would satisfy almost all your requirements. Not sure about fun to drive. Give it atleast a try. Good nvh, ample power, comfortable for 5 adults, nice interiors, good legroom, light and accurate steering, high seating position, nice suspension and a good music system. Above all, it is available at about half the cost of Creta, and seems free of all infamous Tata niggles. But only and only if you are not averse to owning a Tata.
