Which is better, Swift or Dzire?

Maruti two hottest selling cars, one hatchback and other a sedan. What will competition do, when their cars are not even in the consideration set, No wonder Maruti is gaining numbers and market share on able shoulders of Swift and Dzire and that too in a market under stress.

I am bit confused between Swift ZXI and Swift Dzire VXI. Please advice.

Which is better, Swift or Dzire?

Whilst both cars are from the same car manufacturer, you are comparing a 3 Box (sedan) with a premium hatch. Price seems to the reason for the same as Swift Zxi at Rs.5.77 lacs is more expensive than Dzire Vxi by around 24000, basis ex-showroom Delhi price.

Ideally you should have looked at teh ZXi version of Dzire too then the comparison could have be equal  as Swift ZXi being top end version of Swift, it obviously fully loaded, therefore will have more features than the VXi variant of Dzire.

The question simply boils down to the your personal need from a car. If additional boot space is a must, obviously it has to be Dzire. However, if you are looking for a car which is good to drive, then Swift should be your first choice, thanks to its great driveability and stable road manners.  swift is known to be the best handler in the  category of premium hatchbacks. It's K series VVT engine is smooth, refined and fun to drive.

Wheelbase of 2430 mm for both cars means cabin space is going to be identical for these cars. However, Dzire being longer by 145mm and taller by 25 mm does depict more roll and sway than the Swift.  

If you have the budget, desire and no compulsion for a boot, Swift it has to be.
