  1. I want to purchase my first car (am looking for only Petrol car) in the budget of 6 to 6.5 Lakhs. I am considering my car to have the safety features like ABS and Airbags. I am confused to decide between Maruti Swift Vxi (O) versus Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz 2017 Bangalore On Road Prices: Swift Vxi (O) - 7 Lakhs (approx, no discounts) Grand i10 Sportz - 6.4 Lakhs (after dealer discounts) The main things that is creating confusion was to decide between the "Safety" vs "Features" Swift Vxi (o): - ABS - After sales service and better resale value - Better Handling and Better Fuel Efficiency Negative: - A new Swift version is down the line, not sure if this is right time to buy a Swift that will gives older look in few months. - Value for Money Proposition compared to Grand i10 offers in features. - Heard that Breaking in Vxi variants of Swift is not at par with the Grand i10 Sportz. Grand i10 Sportz 2017: - Steering Mounted Volume Controls - Reverse parking sensor - Cooled glove box - Rear AC Vents - Better interiors Negative: - No ABS - Resale value and A.S.S Considering the budget I want to go with Grand i10. But, I am ready to stretch my budget a bit and go with Swift if ABS is really a factor to consider between these two variants. I am not sure, if I can wait till next year for the new Swift. So considering that I will buy a new car this month what will be best choice between Swift and Grand i10. To get the same feature that Grand i10 provides, I need to spend extra 80K on Swift Vxi. 3 years down the line, will I be able to compensate the extra bucks am spending on Swift comparing the A.S.S and Resale value of the Grand i10. Please advise, thanks in advance.
