Hi, I am first time car user and prefer to buy Swift Dzire-Lxi. I know I wont get a lot of things as in VXi or Zxi - please suggest me what are all the important items that i need to buy (i plan fix music system separately) - power windows rear, vanity mirror, Rear Seat Centre Arm Rest, Tachometer, Fog Lights (Front)
Power Adjustable Exterior Rear View Mirror, Wheel Covers, Outside Rear View Mirror Turn Indicators,
Chrome Grille, Smoke Headlamps, Night Rear View Mirror.
Hey, we are glad to know that you are planning for a new car and Maruti Swift Dzire is indeed a good choice. The car has been ruling the Indian market from a long time and satisfied the owner by its performance and a very affordable ownership cost.
Now, talking about the features, assuming that you wish to have the features that you have stated above, we would recommend you to go with the VXi model as it will fulfill all your requirements. Even, you do not need to get the music system installed from outside.
Yes, there is a difference of around 70K in the price of both these models but the features that you are getting are worthy of that price. Rest, the final decision is totally yours.
You can check the detailed comparison of these two models through here by selecting the specific model from the drop down list. Alternatively, you can reach us on 1800-200-3000 Mon - Sat (10 AM - 7 PM).
Well, the authorized service center people use standard lubricants in the cars which are recommended by the manufacturer. If you wish to get some other brand's engine oil to be used in your car, then you can coordinate with the service station and take a final opinion from them.
Swift Dzire LXI(O) is just another Swift Dzire Lxi, but with a few more interior options. It is not offered with ABS and getting the ABS fitted as an aftermarket addition will cost you heavily. We would like to suggest you to go for the Zxi variant, sure it would cost you more, but if safety is your concerned then the top end variant is well worth it.
According to your numbers your daily run is less than 35 KM, If you are planning to buy the diesel variant of the same maker it will cost your around 1 Lakh more that its respective petrol variant. Since your daily run is not that much it means that 1 Lakh which you pay extra for diesel is not going to give good returns. Now if we calculate the avg. price of Petrol is Rs. 72/litre and with a milage of 18 to 20 KM/litre you will ride 25000 to 28000 Km in that Rs. 1 Lakh. It means for nearly 1 and a Half year (16-17 months) you will freely ride your car. One more thing is the resale value of the car. The petrol car life is obviously more than that of diesel + for the maintenance of Diesel engine you will have to loose your wallet. Think twice. Work on your requirements. But my suggestion is undoubtedly a petrol car. If you are riding 35 Km daily it means you spend less than 1 hour in a car out of 24 hours a day. Go and buy a comfortable massage chair out of that remaining 1 Lakh and spend 2 to 3 Hours which you spend on normal office or home chairs. Good luck
