This is a layman-style review of Hyundai I‑20 compared to Maruti Swift. Simple as it is. No strings attached.

LOOKS (EXTERIOR): i20 has good paint work. "I have tried too hard to copy Peugeot 307" headlights, the belt line is nice, side profile, especially rear window reverse angle C - pillar harks back to Swift, wraparound tai lights - again very Swiftish touch.

INTERIORS: Good. Plastic quality pretty good, some bits shiny, huge glove box.

SPACE: Found the seats to be a bit on the flat side. Rear under thigh support could be better.

PERFORMANCE: Weird. Hyundai claims 80 odd bhp. Car I drove was new but even allowing for the new ones of the engine, the engine's reluctance to freely rev beyond 4500 rpm was disappointing. Until 3500 rpm, I 20 pulls decently, but beyond that you can sense a strain on the power plant. It is not that I-20 does not want to rev, but that it os better that you do not. Compare that to the Swift's turbine smooth "revvability" till the 6600 rpm limiter and you'll understand what I mean.

HANDLING: Lousy. Simply lousy. I 20 rolls and wallows in a corner. There is way to much understeer so much so that at modest speeds, say as low as 60 kph in a tightening bend. The nose starts washing out. Compare this to the Swift's razor sharp turn in, flat cornering, resistance to understeer and "throttle adjustability" the swift simply pummels the Hyundai into submission.

FUEL EFFICIENCY: I 20 : 9.8 hard driving, tankful to tankful in Delhi traffic Swift VXI with 185/70 - R14's: 11.82 same route, tankful to tankful, same traffic conditions.

SUMMARY: I 20: spacious hatch if you want to pootle around town.

SWIFT: The vehicle to own if you love driving, love cars and want to put a smile on your face when you are driving down that long and winding road, where ever it is.

It is good despite after three years of launch, Swift still rules and Hyundai despite doing a calculated effort not even coming closer to the performance of Swift.

Truly Swift is a revolution.

The funny thing is that if you drive the I 20 - drive it for an extended session, if possible, and you will also feel it - the engine does not behave as if it has got 80 odd bhp on tap - as claimed by Hyundai.

Initially it feels peppy, but when you extend it over the rev range, then the limitations come up.

If f you guys have driven the old Hyundai Accent and remember how the engine used to run into an "imaginary wall" after 4500 rpm versus the then free revving Esteem engine, you will have a very good comparison.

In terms of safety stakes, I-20 has the Swift licked what with 6 airbags, etc, but then again the price is also whopping enough.

Moot point is: FRILLS and niceties go for the Hyundai

For driving pleasure and depth of engineering, I would recommend MARUTI SWIFT.

So What do you say? Maruti Swift or Hyundai I-20

A great article with nice comparison between Maruti Swift and Hyundai I-20. I would prefer Swift instead of I-20 because it is of much less cost than I-20 and covers the Maruti guarantee and because serviceability of Maruti company is much more better than Hyundai.

Good review. But Hyundai i20 has been launched recently. Its too early to decide the success of this i20.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes i20 has been launched recently but then also, it will not be able to beat Swift, always remember it is India and we follow the rule of "watching others and buying something" and Swift has already been purchased by a lot of people in India. It is really tough for i20 to beat Maruti Swift in sales and service, but then also time will tell what will happen next.

udhaya raj 6 years ago

Ritz is the best when compared with i20.ritz give Very good mileage(almost 13.5kmpl in heavy city traffic without AC, in highway with ac about 13kmpl). Raw power.Great looks. Perhaps this is the most stylish looking car made in India till date. Front seating is very comfortable & spacious. Getting into & out of the vehicle is very easy as it is taller than all the other sedans.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Whenever a new Maruti car is launched, we get reviews like this Udhaya Raj. Yes I know Ritz is great and worthy. Actually, when I published this hub comparing Swift and I-20, Ritz was rather new and people and also myself did not had any idea about it at that time. By the way, thanks for your exclusive review of Ritz. Happy driving.

Bobby Rajput 6 years ago

Hello Soni thanks for your review as its been almost 7 months since you published your review do you feel any changes? I'm really stuck as i wanted to buy Maruti Swift VDI not VXi. What do you think about Maruti Swift VDI.

Regards

Bobby


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes Mr. Rajput, it has been more than 7 months since I published this review. Maruti Swift VDi has a refined diesel engine and has got sporty looks but at the same time it has less boot space and petrol version of MS vdi provides very less mileage, so I think buying Maruti Swift VDI diesel variant is the best option. What do you say Bobby?


Raju 6 years ago

Soni.. I am bit confused to go for Maruthi Swift VXI / Maruthi Swift VDI / i20 Sportz..

I know the above article is for the same comparision. But you have provided the article based on the available models that time.

Now Swift VXI is with K-Series Engine and i20 also came up with new model.

Would like to know your opinion on the same.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Whatever Hyundai comes up with, an Indian buyer buys Maruti cars most of the times because of its serviceability and old brand name. Regarding the K-series engines of both these care Swift VXI and i20, I think both are competing very well in the market with almost same specs so buying a car out of both is a little bit confusing. But as you already know the feel of i20's engine while driving is not so powerful like Swift, so you are a better judge. Why not you test drive both cars and note down points for both of them, compare them, and go ahead with your purchase. It's your money and you should invest it in the best thing.


Amit 6 years ago

Soni , I read your post . I m planning to buy a car in kolkata in the next month within INR 5.5 segment(on road) . Basically, i want to buy one which has good mileage , look and interior and safety also . I don't know to drive.

Please suggest me one car . I will blindly buy that.After reading your post i can blindly trust you ...


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Don't ever do this blindly Amit. I know that you like my articles but it's your money and you need to spend your hard earned money in a the best thing so tell me what all options you are looking for in 5.5 lakh segment and I will compare and publish a new article for you.


Amit 6 years ago

Hi Soni ,

I want to gift this car to my parents in the next month as I am travelling to my home town kolkata. I am looking for a car which has

1. Good Fuel efficiency ( Good Mileage ).

2. Good look , interior and comfortable .

3. Good Service

It would have good if it is Sedan type but i know in 5.5 lakh cannot get a good Sedan car!!.

I don't have much idea about Cars and I can't drive as well .So, your inputs and suggestion is final.

Please suggest me.Thanks a lots Man.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Don't worry Amit. I found a very good sedan car in that range with trusted service of Tata, good fuel efficiency, good looks, interiors, and comfortability and the car is the all-new TATA MANZA. It is a new baby of Tata Motors. If you remember the all over India successful Tata Indigo, yes it is the advanced version of that car equipped with latest specs. You just go ahead and buy Tata Manza SAFIRE90 BS III Aura @ only 517,543.00 INR and on road price must be around 5.5 to 5.6 lakhs. Best of luck.

Hi Soni,

As you must be aware, Hyundai has recently launched the i20 1.2 Lt Kappa Petrol ERA and Maruti has also come up with the K series Swift.

Frankly speaking the diesel model of Tata Manza will be giving a mileage of 20km/pl on highway and 17 km/pl in city and petrol variant of Manza is giving a mileage of 14.5 on highway and 11 km/pl in city traffic.

If you want good serviceability, good mileage, brand name, wanna walk with the crowd, be with the latest trend, then wait for the release of Maruti Swift Sports up until 2011 and when launched buy it. Best of luck Saurabh.


Deep 6 years ago

Hi Soni

i am planning to buy a car..price range 5.2 t 5.7 lacks..

coming down to 2 options i liked - Swift zxi and i20 sportz

i agree to all the benefits of swift but i don't want to buy swift only for 1 reason- old looks..

Do you recommend to wait fr the swift 2011 model? or i should go with i20 sportz..

Please update us with the latest news on swift 2011 , like -

1. it's release date in india.

2. it's pricing compared to i20 sportz.

3. it's features(interiors & exteriors both) compared to

i20 sportz.

Thanks


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Thanks a lot for asking some really useful questions Deep. You should wait for the release of new Swift but you have to shell out some more money buying this car.

New Swift 2011 features will be:

1. New Swift will be longer than Old Swift around 90 mm and also the wheelbase will be extra 50 mm.

2. It will be with the K-series engine.

3. Will be launched in autumn.

4. It will start from 772374 INR.

5. It will be the best Maruti car taking into consideration economy and fuel emissions.

6. It will be with much sporty looks and expensive interiors.


Deep 6 years ago

Hi Soni..

Thanks alot for all your information. I have booked my pearl white i20 sportz last week.. Considering the price which you have informed here, i really won't like to go for swift, due to many other options in that price range. and i guess by the time it will b launched, few more options wuld b open to all.

Besides i cud nt wait for so long..

I wuld still like yu to give an update on price and date of launch..

regards

Deep

Do you still hold the same views about i20 v/s swift, as you had 15 months back?

I have to decide between these two cars. Please advise.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Ravi, you can go for Ritz. It's the latest trend. I would have done that if were you.

Hi carbazz, views have changed a little.


Johns 6 years ago

I test rode both swift zxi & i20 asta and I am completely agree with your article.

I20 is very much underpowered. Currently I own a vagonR which is just 63BHP & i20 claims that it has 80 BHP. But I didn't feel any difference between the two in terms of power.

But swift rocks here. It really gives the feeling of 85BHP.

But except performance & milege i20 is the best. Otherwise swift rules.


Johns 6 years ago

Actually I have booked swift 2 weeks back & now planning to delay it until the new one get launched in Jan 11.

Do you think it worths the wait ?

But I am surprised to hear the expected price you mentioned. All other sites tell the price would be just slightly above the old swift. So I don't expect a difference of more than 30K.

This would make i20 & swift of the same price range.


Harsh  6 years ago

I am planing to buy a new car this Diwali. I like petrol engines and sorted Swift zxi/i20 Sportz/Punto 1.4 E.

I TD all the cars and found swift is more powerful than other two. But the interior is boring with same blackish dashboard and not up to the mark.

I am not choosing Punto because of company's A.S.S is pathetic.

So at the end my heart goes for i20 Sportz. I didn't feel the car is underpowered. I love this car at first sight. It has spacious interiors, bigger boot, great quality plastics, dashing electric ORVM with indicators, feel like a big sedan car.

Prices at Chandigarh (Ex Showroom):

Swift ZXI (ABS): Rs 5,44,849

i20 Sportz(Alloys): Rs 5,32,257

Punto 1.4 E: Rs 5,44,767

I booked my Pearl White i20 Sportz at Chittosho motors, mohali.

Thanks

Harsh

Hi soni,

indeed a nice article.

I was about to buy i20 sportz but after going through this article I am a little confused...

- Do you think that i20sportz has a drastic difference in pickup compared to swift?

- On highways I drive my WagonR appx 125Km/hr with AC on and it gives good performance. Obviously i20/swift has more power so driving these cars in speed of 140km/hr will not be an issue, what do you think?

- What is the max/top speed of i20Sportz and Swift?

I would love to hear your thoughts on the above questions.

Thanks!

Arun 5 years ago

HI All,

As every one have their opinion about the car..

Even i would like to share some of my ideas.

As per my knowledge i20 is the BEST at its segment as compare to any car weather its swift / ritz / indica / Jazz etc etc.

i20 has more legroom as compare to swift and ritz. more boot space. more width space. good looks. and Build Quality exterior as well as interior..

As i agree with the power of the i20 is less as compare to swift.

there is a simple calculation is nothing but power to weight ratio.

i20 comes with 1.2 and 1.4 engine and swift comes with 1.3 engine it will totally unfare to compare with 1.3 engine with 1.2 engine and if you see the weight i20 is bulky then swift that's why u feel little bit underpowered. why don't u compare with 1.4 i20 with 1.3 swift?????????

and service wise maruti is best as its a local brand

Maruthi is famous for its cheep interior quality and cheep tricks..

No Power windows, no wheel caps, no coloured mirrors, no coloured door handel.. that's why they cost is also cheep...

what u says folks??????


Arun 5 years ago

i20 is the only car which gives u luxury feel. RITZ is no were in the picture if comparing to i20.

there are some feature like electronic mirror folding which u won't even get in high end cars like Honda city and Toyota altis......

here what is happening is the person who is having ritz he is saying ritz is good without knowing the fact.

and person who is using swift is praising it. be honest and accept the fact that after i20 is launch swift sale came down that's why maruti is coming with new swift this year ???

maruti is best for only 2 things cheep prise and service centers.

Prashant 5 years ago

Hi Soni,

I have gone through your article & all the reviews. I think Swift is very nice car compare to i20 because recently I had test drive both the cars, I feel there is a vast difference in this both the cars from driving point.

Swift is much more better than i20 as per driving experience....& also has very decent look.

I had booked Swift 2011 & waiting for launching of this new rapper.

One question is in my mind that.....in one of your review you had mentioned price of swift2011 as starts from 772374 INR. its create much confusion to buy the same. If so then why people go for hatcback instead sedan cars like Dezire & SX4.

Old swift was costing from 4.5 to 5.35, my question is why so much hike in this new swift2011.

If the price you mentioned is confirmed then I have to switch over to Old swift will comes around 5.5 as a good deal for me in hatchback car.

One more thing why maruti not disclosing the launch as they had launched it in October10 in Hungary

Please reply

Arshi 5 years ago

Hi All,

Would like to make my suggestions as well:

Before comapring the cars decide what you really need. If you need a car that is stylish and comfortabe and want to show others, go for I20 and if you need Style and Power go for Swift.

There is one more that car that no one has mentioned which is Fiat Palio. I own a Swift petrol and Palio 1.9 D and i have driven I20 for more that 300Km at a stretch. I fell people who love driving long distances will like Swift and Palio much more than I20.

Personally i Love Palio than swift because it is powerfull, comfortable and Stable.

Thanks!

I am planning to buy car which gives better performance, comfort and mileage between I20 and Swift. But I am too confused going through the reviews.

Is there issue of ground clearance and suspension with I20?


Kanav 5 years ago

I would go for i20 because it is more comfortable and spacious.it's interior is excellent. I think if anybody wants a car,he or she must buy i20.

Sajid 5 years ago

Hi soni2006,

I am a bit confused between Ford Figo Titanium(Diesel), i20(Magna). Even in i20 I am confused with petrol or diesel. My budget is 5.5 (may be 5.75 but not more). Please help.


Ashish Bora 5 years ago

u should always opt for the i20 bcoz its a car which gives u speed and comfort at the same time. as we all know that how stupid maruti suzuki cars like ritz and a-star. so to get the best worth of your money go with the dashing i10.


analyst 5 years ago

Guys, You should also consider safety features of a car when deciding to buy one. Airbags should be main deciding factor & then comes the rest. If you drive any car within speed limits, then it would be safe for you & your family.

Hello Madhusudan B L, I wrote this article many months back and in so many months, things have changed drastically so please visit my fresh article comparing VX Polo with i20 here http://hubpages.com/autos/which-car-is-better-to-b...

i20 has become more and more stylish with more boot space, trendy interiors, and dashing exteriors. Also so many people have already bought Swift and it looks outdated. Now Maruti needs to launch a new model for gaining popularity. I20 is rocking the Indian automobile industry.


Christino 5 years ago

New Maruti Swift and Hyundai i20 features are mind blowing with gorgeous looks. The attractive and ground breaking design of this car will surely attract the Indian customers.

Hi Soni,

I am 26 yrs old. Love to driving & Buying my first car.

I am 2-3 options

a)i20 ERA @ 5.15L on road

b)Swift LXI 5.00L on Road ( but 4 months waiting)

c)Ford Fiesta Lxi 6.25L On road

Pl suggest which one would be the best !


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 5 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

I think you should go for either Swift Lxi or i20 Era in that budget.


SAHIL GUPTA 5 years ago

Thanks Soni ! but my badluck !Called dealer today & Old swift is out of booking ! New swift will arrive after 4-5 months. Is i20 good deal or Ritz ?? I am looking for a maintenance Free car with good engine.

I have also heard some problems with i20. Is it so ??


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 5 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hello Mr. Sahil Gupta, actually i20 and Ritz are from different segments. First of all, I would like to know what is your total budget? I can assume through your previous comment that you have a budget of 5 to 6.25 lakhs as you have mentioned about Ford Feista in that segment. If it's true, then you have many other options. First please clarify me about your budget, then I can tell you about a good maintenance free car. Also, regarding your query for i20, every machine in this world has some or other problem but as both these cars i20 and Swift are being owned by majority of people around India, then of course there will be lot of negative feedbacks as there are loads of positive feedbacks. The best way to land on the best deal is to take test drives of each and every car in your budget and buy the one which suits your needs. You are the best judge because it's your hard earned money that you are investing in buying a good vehicle for you and your family.


SAHIL GUPTA 5 years ago

Hi Mr. Soni ! Thanks for the quick reply

My budget is around 6.5 L.

I am looking for vehicle for 4-5 yrs without any major maintenance requirements.

Basically i need a car with good space & fun to drive.Mileage i can compromise.

Hi Mr Soni,

My car met with an accident. It has done just 10,000 kms so far. Should I think of selling it and buying a new one.. or should i continue with the existing one. The problem is the resale prices are pretty depressed as it is an accident vehicle.

Awaiting your reply.

Thanks


Sunny 5 years ago

Dude, I own an I20. Its been more than 2 years now and still I absolutely love driving it. Recently, some rash Swift driver overtook me on a high way and I raced him for quite some time. My I20 overtook him quite easily and I was able to hold him for quite a long time till we decided to stop. Swift is a really boring car. Stereo is bad, interiors are all black and boring. Dash does not display anything interesting.


siddharth 5 years ago

Well sunny it depends on your driving. car can only give you controle and speed after that its upto u how u manage to beat odr cars.

and according to me i agree with u that old swift dosnt hve gud interior but new swift is loadded with very very gud feature and damm gud interior.

mileage of i20 is not better tha. swift, price of i20 is more than swift, handling of swift is better than i20,

And most surprising thing is that i am i20 owner but still i belive tht swift is better

well if u try to race with me in ur i20 and me with swift thn i vl definately beat u

hi, its been a year i have been driving i20 sportz petrol, n believe me its a great car. i m not a techno savvy but some results to share. in city i get somewhere near 14.5 to 15 kmpl n on highways goes up to 17. ppl talk about bhp n rpm so let me tell u on i have taken it upto 3500 rpm n that is suficient on indian roads. i travel a lot in himachal n never the car is equally responsive there too


siddharth sharma 5 years ago

Yeah i20 is very good car butin comparision with new swift

i20 is better only in safety due to its number of air bags

odrwise swift is beter in handling, pick up, mileage, nw evn gud in interior also

New swift has very less boot space then i20.New swift vxi price is around 5.2 lakhs and 120 magna 1.2 is around 5.4 lakh on road. New swift still cant beat i20 in interiors as well as exterior.i20 rocks in all field...

prem 5 years ago

i bought i-20 sports(alloy) last month...and truly speaking its really a pleasure to drive Hyundai cars. and its interior quality totally beats the Swift....and the handling is also good(butter).

and lots of people says tat it takes 14 sec. to catch 0-100km/h whether swift takes 12.5 sec.... but no one says about its maximum speed which is 175 km/h whether swift has 145 km/s so it beats swift in speed also...

its paint quality is really good...u had noticed that swift car gives its noise in interior after some time.so its interior quality is so bad and more scratches in its outsides color paint(due to poor paint quality).

maruti Suzuki is now afraid of i-20 market. that's why he relaunched the swift. but it still sucksssssss...in low leg space....

and maintenance is now equal for both companies due to competition.

so no doubt go for hyundai i-20 whether go for diesel or whether go for petrol...

Disgusting and biased review

I don't think you have even tried the i20

it has buttersmooth gearshifts , you can turn the steering with your finger ,

The quality of plastic is better than crap of maruti's !

in swift you can feel that you are sitting on maruti's odd lot

But When you move inside i20 , You can feel the diffrence the interior is comparable to that of honda civic , The quality of pleastic is great

The i20 has great dynamics as compared to that of swift ,

All i can say is that you have not even sat in i20 ! ! ! !

suzuki company is best company in the world.

Partha 5 years ago

Guys - I am a proud owner of the new i20 Magna diesel. I did quite a lot of research and read many discussions, that lead me to purchase i20. I bought it just a month ago and have driven 4000 kms within a month. Out of this experience I say, it is a Korean Crap!

i20 cant even come close to Swift when it comes to drive. I drive around 30kms per day to office in Bangalore and I get so tired changing the gears.

You would not believe - i20 struggles in 2nd gear. Imagine how would ur ride be if 2nd gear doesn't help.

i20 has its own pros, but when the ride is poor, nothing will count.

To conclude - I am a proud owner of i20 and I regret it everyday!

Madhan Thamilarasan. 4 years ago

I don't have a car yet but reading this review i feel its 'This article is very biases'. Swift is a good car no question but i20 is none the less. Just try this, sit inside a swift and then in i20 and just tell which one feels better. I am sure you will like the i20 interior and its cabin space is bigger than the swift. i20 is costlier than swift but you get what you pay for i 20 is well eqipped. I want to point out one more thing on this review which is a blunder mistake they have the i30 image instead of i20. Please give importance to details accurately when you write a review. Thanks.


Navin Kanth Reddy 4 years ago

What ever, swift is the best vehicle ever in the indian markets, because of its unmatched performance and futuristic technology, which I think, would take a lot of time for the other vehicles to catch up with.

Any way guys planning to go for a swift or hyundai i 20, I would always recommend you to go for swift, it is value for money.

Any body who is a novice in deciding which vehicle to go, can always contact me at my e-mail address Navinkanth1976@Hotmail.com for free advice.

Hyundai i20 is always ahead than maruti suzuki swift in all things eg. comfort ,technology & performance etc.


SHARDUL JOSHI 4 years ago

0 is a car of the era, compact yet spacious, technologically advanced yet environment friendly from the pioneer of small car manufacturers Maruti Suzuki, christened as Maruti Swift. But then as Maruti was making inroads into the mindset of compact-car category, Hyundai made no mistake to capitalize on Maruti’s success with launch of Hyundai i10 and now with more advanced and spacious Hyundai i20. If spacious is synonymous with Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20 promises value for money with no compromise on comfort and space.

In the mini-car segment, both Maruti Swift and Hyundai i20 comes with 5 door hatchback but Hyundai i20 comes with an extended wheelbase measuring 2525mm. This aspect gives greater stability to Hyundai i20 as compared to Maruti Swift with wheelbase of 2390mm. And the size does matters and rightly so Hyundai i20 stands with 3940 mm in length and 1710 in width in comparison to Maruti Swift overall length of 3760mm and overall width of 1690mm. In height you might see our Hyundai i20 a bit shorter to Swift but in its look Hyundai i20 reflects sturdier appeal. With increased overall length and width, I feel that the interior space of Hyundai i20 is always greater thus enhancing comfort with style. When it comes to voting for spaciousness, I felt that spending few extra bucks will help you enjoy a better leg space with roomy interiors in a Hyundai i20 than in Maruti Swift. However, check the performance statistics before you make your choice.

The greatest innovation in terms of lighter weight is the all aluminum engine and the Hyundai i20 is equipped with modern Kappa engine for optimum fuel efficiency and minimum gas emission. And the Maruti Swift too responds at the slightest touch in the all aluminum 1298cc engine with 16 valves that generates torque of 113Nm@4500rpm. The maximum speed of Maruti Swift is 160km/h and from 0-60 km, Maruti Swift takes just 6 seconds. The gearbox matches perfectly with the power and the torque curves. Whereas, the Hyundai i20 with differential gear ratio clocks 0-60km in 12.9 seconds. Hyundai i20 is good for the Indian roads but I know not how the car will perform in the highway.

Available in five variants and six shades of metallic hue, price of Maruti Swift ranges from Rs 4 lacs to Rs 5.6 lacs. While Hyundai i20, launched in eight vibrant shades is priced at Rs 4.79 lacs for Magna version, Rs.5.59 lacs for the Asta and Rs.5.82 lacs for Asta (O), New Delhi, ex-showroom.

So, just check out and drive with pleasure

siddharth sharma 4 years ago

My dear friend abhi

let me tell u about my xperince

i am x owner of i20 and current owner of swift

i am not saying tht i20 is bad car

i m saying thay overall swift is better than i20

let me tell u the difference between these two cars.

1 safety- i20 is better than swift due to its 6 airbags

2 pick up- swift is better than i20. it takes 12.5 second to reach 0-100 and i20 takes 13.8 second (petrol)

3 space- i20 is better than swift

4 comfort- both are equal

5 performance- swift is better than i20

6 handling- no doubt swift is mch mch better than i20

7 interior- depends upon taste accrdng to me swift is better

8 exterior- no doubt i20

9 resale value and network- everybody knows swift

overall swift is better if ur prioritty is safety space exterior and looks but if u wnt performance handling resale value pick up power thn go for swift

milege - swift is better

u cn check these figure on internet

and abhi 220km/hr is shown in speedometer of i 20 it doesn't mean tht i20 can catch 220. U said tht u touchd 170 in ur i20 but how it is possible coz evn hyundai claims top speed of 165.

Okay i want to ask one question from all of u

Why sale of swift is mch more than i20

advance record booking of new swift tells us the whole story

why people are purchasing swift even with the long waiting period

this tells us tht which car is better

You swift lovers are actually like the frog in the well.

HI Soni,

I wish to buy a car and little confused between Swift and Toyota Liva.

will you please make a SWOT analysis and guide me which will be wise choose.


Madan 4 years ago

Hi, I think there s dispute over two fan groups, i20 fans and swift fans. I am an i20 diesel 6 speed owner, the reason i didn't buy swift because mainly of two reasons

1) Quality of material used interior and exterior.

2) lack of technical expertise in after sales service.

3) Diesel engine is from Fiat, the same engine for all tata's, fiat's and maruti's. and it is getting outdated.

3) Got really bored seeing swifts everywhere, just like in the case of bajaj pulsar, even new swift is exact copycat of previous. I will go psycho if i buy a swift, you are no different than others and you cannot feel special.

Why i20

1) Looks are different, spacious, component quality is good, exteriors and interiors are well designed and matches very well with the entire car concept.

2) Engine is redesigned, it is 6 speed, with VGT - Huge Intercooler, EGR. with Full EPS.

( This is the same patented CRDi engine shared by Daimler Chlyser and Hyundai).

3)HASS is good, component quality is good and lasts well, less repairs, but ok if little bit high priced.

4)Performance and handling, it depends user to user, For me i20 handling and performance heartily satisfied.

Technically, i20 has larger front disc brakes and larger tyre base(185/90) than swift. I was able to easily clock 178kmph without any trouble with AC and 5 people+luggage onboard. my friend has touched 180kmph (watch in youtube)

And not to mention 220Nm is world class torque and no car in this segment has swift has 190Nm, it pulls like hell anything i have ever seen, leave it in 2nd gear in hill climb, it pulls happily.

5)Mileage in city with AC i am getting 17-18kmpl and outside city with AC 24-25kmpl plus. ( i have real time mileage indicator installed)

6) Note , i20 is filled with lot of small gadgets even high end car do not have, and these are not told by either Hyundai or sales person, ex: rain sensor, auto headlight dipper, speed sensing door lock, auto parking lights off, gear shift indicator, sunroof.....and many many things, some of them mentioned come by default and some are additional accessories.

Truly worth the money spent, if i had swift even new one, i would have cursed myself all the time, just because not being different and lack of component quality, same case as bajaj pulsar.

Regards

MADAN


siddharth sharma 4 years ago

Dear abhi

As i told all if u that i am x owner of i20 and current owner of new swift.

I m not saying i20 is bad car

I20 is better than swift in space

Exterior looks (depend on ur taste)

Comfort and safety

But if i talk abt handling pick up performance than swift is better

I don't want to hurt ur feelings for ur car

I20 is very good car

Okay those who want comfort style looks and safety go for i20

And those who want handling mileage performance grt network resale value go for swift

Is that ok wid u

And u said i20 diseal take 12 sec

U r wrong bro

I thnk u shld consult dealer

It evn diseal takes more than 13 second

And swift 12

And i don't thnk tht v purchase car for racing

Take test drive

Take help of internet

Ask ur dealer

U vl get same result as i told u abt i20

Okay jst answer ds simple question why people are ready to wait for 6-7 months for swift ?

Why most of people prefer swift more than i20?

Otherwise i20 is also very good car

I had i20

Now if you need overall car which counts avrg mantainence pickup then swift in is best :)

Swift is good to drive also...but for me I20 looks great...some reasons to like I20 ...

1) Price- Compare to swift (ZDI) and I20 sportz--

swift ZDI price=8.5 lakhs on road

I20 sportz diesel price= 8.8 lakhs on road.

some extra features I20 compared to swift car..ex: cooling glove box, rear camera, electromagnetic inside rear view mirror, outside mirror automatic folding, very good looking foldable key but in swift its worst look, rain sensing wipers, 60:40 split seats, good looking music systems along with steering mounted controls but crapped look in swift, more and enough space for 5, blue illumination lights looks hot compare to yellow type in swift, steering looks great in i20 compared to swift, the price difference is only 30k compared to swift ZDI..

so which one is better ....?
