Swift 2011 Vs i20 Magna one better than the other

Comparing two competent premium hatchback is quiet common, more so when they are Swift and i20, each one, better than the other. It's but natural to have confusion in one's mind. 


Please suggest me a car between Swift VXi and i20 Magna(petrol)


Swift 2011 Vs i20 Magna one better than the other

In all honesty they are quite close to each other, in terms of features and specifications. Being petrol cars, both would drive equally well, however, Swift with a Kerb weight of 970 Ks against 1036 Kg of i20, the power to weight ratio goes in favour of Swift ( 90Ps/Tonne for Swift Vs 83 Ps/Tonne for i20), this simply means that Swift will have better pulling power which in turn may positively affect cars driveability in favour of Swift.

Driving pleasure of Swift is also driven by its class leading suspension and its known for great road manners in terms of handling, cornering and ride quality. Swift is known for a being a real pleasure to drive.

In terms of looks, I would personally prefer the i20 as its far more appealing and good looking than the Swift, this is not to say that Swift with its contemporary looks is any less. Looks are just a personal preference.

Only tangible between two cars is that i20 thanks to its longer length (145 mm more than Swift), Width (15 mm more than Swift) and Wheelbase (95 mm more than Swift) will be in dimension terms more spacious. Wheelbase which defines cabin space definitely is in favour of the i20. However, Swift with its greater height (25 mm more than i20) feels equally spacious.

Between the two Swift is cheaper by almost 20K (ex-showroom Delhi) than i20.

At the end, It's clearly a toss-up between the two, as both are equally competent car, from trusted manufacturers and would be expected to be equally heavy on your pocket in terms of maintenance.

On looks, go for i20, however, if you love to drive then go for Swift. This is the best we could do
