Swift or Fabia???I am Confused

Recommended Posts

If you want overall good hatch is Swift if you want to show off and have good quality interior with extra premium price then go for Fabia .Also with just one varient its cheating by Skoda they should launch lower priced varient fast so that it can be compared .The price diiferece in top end Swift and Fabia will be around 2.5-3 lakhs.

You get what you pay for.. thats all I have to say.

The swift's a decient mid priced hatch.. and the Skoda's a premium one.. so you would be the best judge of what you want.

Yes Zavo. But some 'so called intelligent' people (there are too many of them) on the forum do not seem to think so. A person has a need and a budget (often indicated by the possible choices) and they are pushing cars costing twice as much.

Also, unless one specifies the mileage, nature of driving, load requirements, etc. at least I am unable to advise. Of course we have the 'real gurus' with an opinion on everything at the drop of a hat. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing (but not for them)!smiley2.gif

Yea SG..

See it's VERY EASY to spend other people's money right?

Let's not forget the all important factor.. AVERAGE KYA HAI.. factor.

Morons!!!

@Zavo. Thanks for reminding me of the 'Average kya hai' syndrome. You get the same question on an M800 as on an S-class. If you need your own oil well to buy the car then you do not inquire 'aver... hai'. about. Someone please tell these people.

Also, for these gentlemen fuel cost per km is the cost of ownership (Nay it is God!), all other parameters are irrelevant.

Forget M800's and S Classes..

I've been asked that while riding a friend's Valkyrie.. in Bombay..

I wanted to stop the bike, get off.. and deck the guy..

@Zavo I agree with you this time if one has Fabia kind of money then why not (I am not Skoda Enemy I love the octiva better than optra for its high FE and linear power delivery).

you dont wanna wait for the Jazz or Yaris or Grande Punto before you make your choice! i feel Fabia has identical looks of Swift, you cant recognise one in a fast moving traffic and ppl mistake it for Swift. am paying so much and i need the heck identity for the money i pay! just a thought! you wanna think that paying for the overpriced Fabia is an act of Just Do It! no hope Nike sets up a classroom session to understand what it means by Just Do It, but this is money and i would suggest to be careful, Just Do This!

I am surprised if you think they are identical. Saw on the Auto Show on NDTV Profit - they put the Fabia size wise in the class of a City. Either they have a blown up car or the Fabia has shrunk!

If you are talking of teh silhouette then most cars of a category are very similar. You often have to look at the sticker to find out. In that sense yes, all mid-large hatches have a similar silhouette.

i dont think so this is true all the time, i can identify cars on Indian roads without the sticker but even then Fabia is too identical to Swift!

Even I find them similar looking. The fat and short C pillar and the short rear window glass are common in both.

Deciding between the two depends on a lot of factors personally I would opt for the Swift.

Swift is a much value for money than Fabia. You can buy one swift and one i10 instead of Fabia. However money is no matter then go for the Chevy Optra hatch. Its much spacious and fun to drive.

VFM is an individual definition. If one just looked at the size & price the Merc. A class would never have been created. Basically if you are looking for a good mid market vehicle with a good performance at a reasonable price you look at the Swift, on the other hand if you are looking for a baby  Octy (segment D or so) with all the bells and whistles, or as is nicely called by some commentators having all the 'Toys' then look at the Fabia - Up-market, with a larger boot as well. When the Swift came out it created the mid sized Hatch, the Fabia is looking for space higher up the ladder.
