1. Swift-petrol

2.Swift-diesel.

3.Getz-1.3 petrol.

4.Getz- diesel

5.Palio-1.6 petrol.

6.Hyundai-I-10

Take a test drive of the Swift VDi (diesel). Its really awsome. The common rail Fiat multijet diesel is noiseless and other than the diesel tank being topped up, there's no feeling at all that its a diesel. It can also perform better than any petrol car in its class, while on the highways.

The Union Budget has made it cheaper by Rs 18000/-approx. It should be availiable for around Rs 550,000=00 ex-showroom. ABS and airbags are optional.

If Diesel, Getz is better than Swift as its much more powerful and comfortable and also interiors are better now.. Swift diesel is for smoothness and refined and also economical but not for those who want power,performance,space..etc..

Like The VTEC guy pointed out, Swift is just 87bhp.

The Palio 1.6 is the best of the lot. It feel and handles even better than some C segment cars.

Except braking I tested the new 1.6lt Palio and the brakes get locked up pretty fast and really needs ABS.
