Swift, Grande Punto, I20 or Swift Dzire Vdi Which is Best for me?

Let me try to answer for each car – This is going to be more qualitative, simply because out of the 3 cars in your consideration 2 fo them share their engine design and tech to a great extent they being Swift VDi and Grande Punto. However, they are mated to very different gears boxes, which does play a huge role in the car’s performance. Even the ECU mapping is different for both of them, but since both of them are from the same qudrajet family (named differently by them), the engine is super smooth and quite peppy, with absolutely delicious mileage figures. On teh Other hand Hyundai uses CRDI – slightly noisier than qudrajet, but has been its duty for Hyundai Diesel cars for many years.


Style – I20, followed by Swift and then Grande Punto – A distant third

Space – Swift (particularly the height gives a feeling of openness), i20 and Punto matched

Maintenance – i20 (Easy to get parts , slightly lower cost), Swift, Punto – Going to kill and parts could be an issue mainly because volume is not there

Resale – Swift and i20 will go head to head, Punto actually could be a problem

I would go for swift, but then waiting could kill me. And because of that, one does not get good discounts on this car, and one has to buy almost at MRP price, other 2 have some offers which makes their entry cost slightly more bearable

VISITOR                                                      Can i buy Tiago               


VISITOR                                                      which car i should buy between Tiago, Grand I10 and Baleno   


VISITOR                                                      Really confused             


VISITOR                                                      But i liked Tiago..but only thing is Brand Tata   


AGENT                                                        Actually speaking Baleno is the odd car out from your set          


AGENT                                                        to some extent even Grand i10 is not comparable         


AGENT                                                        Tiago looks good, but it does come with Tata Badge plus there are still some fit and finish issue inside the car                                         


VISITOR                                                      My budget is 6.5 lacs which one should i buy?

VISITOR                                                      i like all 3cars cars..i liked the most is Tiago because i get 5.54 top model           


VISITOR                                                      but all my family members and Relatives says no any Tata car...what do you suggest   


AGENT                                                        I am just looking at Grand i10 Vs Tiago for your budget, which I presume is on road       


VISITOR                                                      yes will i get good resale value for that..and usually all Tata cars after 2 yesar or so become really                                                                     


AGENT                                                        For your budget you get XT of Tiago and Magna of Grand i10     


AGENT                                                        INter Dimensionally they are nearly equal        


AGENT                                                        I am working towards that         


VISITOR                                                      ya i know...can you pls tell me Tiago or Grand i10
