Dear Arpit, Technology is indeed important and a deciding factor when buying a new car. All the cars you've mentioned are technologically sound, and so you should not worry about things like SOHC and DOHC, which is basically the number of camshafts in the engine. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages. Overall, among the cars you're shopping for, we feel the Grand i10 would make the best choice. We don't recommend the Brio simply because we find it is too small and overpriced for the kind of features it offers.
