Both cars are equally competent, whilst Swift is a contemporary car, its the i20 with trade mark Hyundai Fluidic design, which wins the style/looks battle over Swift.

Swift VXi at Rs.4.91 lacs over I20 Magna (O) at Rs.5.27 lacs offers you a lower entry cost.

No Major difference between fuel efficiency between Swift Vxi and i20 Magna (O) at 18.6 Kmpl and 18.5 Kmpl ARAI Mileage. So on running cost it could be a toss-up.

Swift Delivers 87 Ps peak power at 6000 Rpm against i20 Magna delivering 84 Ps at 6000 Rpm, whilst in absolute numbers both cars are quite similar, however from performance point fo view Swift will be better as the car has to pull almost 66 Kgs lower weight over the i20 Magna (O). This power to weight advantage that Swift has over i20 Magna makes it a better performer.

Features offered by i20 Magna (O) are better than the Swift and to name a few; i20 Magna (O) comes with Automatic air conditioning Vs Manual air conditioning in Swift, Reverse Parking Sensor with Audio Alert in i20 Magna (O), Heated and Electrically Adjustable, Folding ORVM's in i20 Magna (O) Vs just Electrically Adjustable ORVM's in Swift and Gear Shift Indicator in i20 Magna (O), Double Din Stereo System with Aux-in, USB ports with 4 speakers and 2 Tweeters. Thus basis features our choice will be i20 Magna (O).

Dimensionally the i20 Magna (O) is 145 mm longer, 15 mm wider and offers 95 mm more cabin space than the Swift. I20 Magna (O) offers 91 Ltrs more luggage space than the i20 Magna (O). Space and therefore more comfort inside the car goes in favour of the i20 Magna (O).

Go for Swift for Maruti Heritage, lower entry cost and performance or for i20 Magna if you are looking for plusher interiors, more creature comforts and space.
