Hi, I want to purchase a car in the range of 5-6 lacks and I have pretty much narrowed down my choices to Hyundai i20 sportz or maruti swift zxi both petrol version .But I am very confused with these two options.In the internet where ever I have searched there is no competitive review of the two models.The reviews or comparison whatever are available are too old to consider since both the models have undergone recent changes.Previously i owned a maruti alto and was quite dissatisfied with the performance as the vehicle neither gave good pickup nor was specious enough to carry luggage or to adjust three person in the back seat.My requirements include both the comfort as well as the good performance on roads.To give an idea ,out of the 35000 km that i drove my vehicle,almost 28000 km was driven on highways.I would appreciate an expert advise from the experts to help me select one of the two.thanks in advance for your replies.
About diesel engine,I have heard that it is suitable for the people who are very frequent users.For me i would say that I drive my car once or twice in a week.With the new technologies emerging how far is this statement is true. Also diesel model is about 1 lack more.

Hi D.P. Singh,
Both the cars mentioned by you are very good and have been selling rather well in their segment.
The Maruti Swift is a good car with strong backing from Maruti in regards to after sales and spares, its against now and a new Swift is just around the corner and should be launched in a few months time. It has a good Diesel variant also which is best in class efficiency. Prices are lesser than the Hyundai i20.
The i20 on the other hand boasts of best in class space and European safety standards. The i20 has also received 5star NCAP safety award. It has a very good Petrol option as well as the most powerful and efficient Diesel version. The Hyundai i20 could also be your good choice.
