Buying Chevrolet Aveo U-VA or Maruti Swift

Updated on March 12, 2011

Today, a visitor on one of my car hub named Har asked me “Which car should I buy from Swift LXi and U-VA 1.2. I love U-VA interiors and Swift's performance, so confused still. You suggest please. So I thought to give him the answer right away but then thought that why not publish a new article so that other Indian car lovers can get benefit from it, so here is my answer:

Hi Har, the best way to compare both Swift and Chevy Aveo U-VA or any other car is to test drive them and see what meets your requirements, but then also I am providing some advantages and disadvantages of both these cars so that these can help you in comparing and buying a new car of choice.

Advantages of buying Maruti Swift:

  • Good power.
  • Fuel economy (10-15 km per liter) okay.
  • Good looks.
  • Slick, precise gear shift.
  • Low cost of ownership.
  • Amazing Maruti service network
  • Good resale price.
  • Sporty interiors.
  • Good service network.

Disadvantages of buying Maruti Swift:

  • Rattling sounds (might have been solved in recent production batches like in K-series engine Swift).
  • Stiff suspension (not that comfortable).
  • Bad metal quality.
  • Too common these days.

Advantages of buying Chevrolet Aveo U-VA

  • Fuel economy (10-15 km per liter) okay.
  • Good looks.
  • Very good ride comfort.
  • Attractive and expensive interiors.
  • Super smooth engine.
  • Good quality fittings and metal.
  • Not that common on roads, so you may have some eyes turned on it.

Disadvantages of buying Chevrolet Aveo U-VA

  • Poor service network.
  • Expensive spare parts.
  • Gear shift is rough.
  • Low resale value.
  • Not as powerful as Swift.
  • On road cost almost as much as Swift (not worth, since it is a low powered car).

I found that Chevy Aveo is okay but it is not value for money. You can buy Maruti Swift instead because:

  • Its acceleration is highest in segment, can beat many cars in its segment in a straight line drag.
  • Has the comfort of a luxury car.
  • Swift has the best features in the segment.
  • Suspension is very stable at high speeds.
  • Attractive Looks: The best looks in its segment.
  • White Color- Combines Sportiness and Royalty.

My Verdict

Go for Swift Petrol if you travel less than 30 kilometers per day or go for a Swift Diesel if you travel more. Just drive it cautiously and you will love the Swift more than anything.

      In this particular instance, if I lived in India, the Maruti Swift would probably be my choice. Interesting article.
