i20 or swift petrol version ?

Recommended Posts

there are rumours of the new swift being launched this diwali along with the existing swift !! but the doubt still remain about what the existing "in-queue" users would be getting and will the new one will be worth the upgrade ??

I belong to this queue. I booked a swift 6 months ago. Last week i got the call from them as the car is ready, i told them to hold for 2 months, they said OK. So when the new swift is out, I'll buy that.

 

2 swifts (new & old) co existing wouldn't make sense.

hey buddy,

 

i would recommend u to test drive the swift diesel and then make a choice between i 20 and Swift. I do accept dat the K series engine is frugal and performance oriented, but the diesel avatar is a mini road rocket.

 

So test drive all the 3 back to back, i'm sure u'l be able to make ur choice.

 

Happy motoring

Which one of the following has an ABS ? i20 Asta has ABS right ? I would suggest the one with ABS. Swift and i20 are close competitor. Swift is for better performance and AC. i20 for better ride and comfort. Quality of i20 is better than swift. Swift has a long waiting period too.

All depends on your priority. I would have bought a Swift Vxi ABS if I was in your place though. The engine performance and FE is much better than i20. Swift is also more driver focused.

i20 had an AC problem which I heard that is taken care of by Hyundai. If the problem is solved then i20 Asta ABS is also a good buy. In new Delhi a car with good AC is mandatory. The heat can be unbearable.

If you find Swift better, then push for the VXi ABS option. It is worth the extra pay.

@ikwgeek;

If you can't wait for new Swift then go for Current Swift,

Even if its going to be replaced, might be in next 6-8months, but still there's not any difference in her demand, Sales & Waiting periods, Queues for her are large & Customers are paying huge premium for her even today.

 

There are Rumours that its going to be replaced but there's not any confirmation on it yet.

But a l'll bit altered advice for you ikwgeek, If you're going your car for your personal use only or having family with Small kids, then you might look at A-Star VXi/ZXi also, as its very Swift-like in driving character & very Nimble in city too with its Compact dimensions.

 

IMO, And where i20 lacks is its;

1) Fuel efficiency- 8-9kmpl for 1.2l petrol.

2) Over-large size for city & not so great visibility.

3) Pretty Expensive too.

I have the Swift and i20 both.

Swift is more peppier although i20 is more classy interms of interior and features.

Personally I find Swift engine better than i20 because am more into speed and response. Although i20 is more a city car just drive it around slow n steady! The fuel efficiency of Swift is phenomenol.

It really depends on what you like.... I just prefer shape of i20 if it had an engine like Swift it would rock!
