Compare swift dire vs scross

Answers for this Question

The new generation Swift Dzire is unquestionably the best-selling compact sedan in India. It comes with two engine options i.e. the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel and 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine. Both get 5-speed manual transmissions as standard. Dzire petrol can be owned with a 4-speed automatic gearbox, while the diesel gets an optional 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT).The car gets a good list of features, including push button start, 6 speakers, electrically foldable and adjustable wing mirrors, steering mounted audio/phone controls and more. Additionally, ABS with EBD and dual airbags are available as an optional extra with every variant.

Maruti Suzuki S-CrosS- Termed as a premium crossover, the S-Cross has plenty more to offer than the usual run of the mill hatchbacks on stilts which are often positioned as a crossover. The new Maruti packed to the brim with features, has acres of cabin space and uses top-notch materials never seen on any Maruti hatchback till date.

The S-Cross is available with two engine options, a 1.3 and a 1.6 litre DDiS engine. This is the only vehicle in the Maruti Suzuki portfolio to not have a petrol motor on offer. The two engines are dubbed DDiS200 and DDiS320 respectively, where 200 and 320 represent the torque these engines generate. Here’s a quick glance at the numbers:

Engine            Power        Torque    Gearbox             Fuel Efficiency
1.3 l DDiS200    90PS       200Nm    5-Speed MT    23.65km/l
1.6 l DDiS320    120PS    320Nm     6-Speed MT    22.7km/l

The S-Cross will be available in 8 variants across 5 trims: Sigma, Sigma (O), Delta, Zeta and Alpha. The Sigma and Sigma (O) variants will only get the 1.3 litre engine.

Coming to the ride and handling aspect - Swift Dzire comes with a comfort-oriented suspension setup featuring a McPherson strut layout at the front and a torsion beam system at the rear. It feels smooth, comfortable and there are hardly any surprises.  The steering is responsive and fun to use and while the overall package isn’t enthusiast-centric, it offers enough balance to make it practical, yet fun to drive. Its overall behaviour remains predictable, but the rear suspension feels a bit too soft.

The S-Cross has a relatively mature ride quality.The suspension isn’t soft and neither too stiff – in short, very much like the Swift. The car does manage to tackle potholes and broken roads with relative ease. The straight-line stability is fantastic – best from Maruti Suzuki till date. The S-Cross feels stable and eager to change direction, even during triple digit speeds. Due to the crossover-ish ground clearance of 180 mm, there is inevitable body roll when chucked fast into a corner.

Safety - Features like 3-point seatbelts, rear door child locks, a security alarm system and an engine immobilizer have been given as standard across all variants in Dzire. You also get speed-sensitive auto door locks.    

All trims of the S-Cross are loaded with Anti Lock Brakes and Electronic Brake Distribution. Another great addition is disc brakes all around where the convention is to have disc brakes only at the front and drums at the rear.

  • Hi I'm confused between getting an Elantra or Toyota Corolla Altis,

    Published On :2016-11-29 08:24:08.0 By Arun

    Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla Altis

    Hyundai has decided to shake things up a little with the launch of the new generation Elantra. Toyota's Corolla Altis continues to be its biggest rival.

    Price:
    Thanks to aggressive pricing, the Elantra undercuts the Corolla Altis is terms of price. Most of the diesel variants of the Elantra are more expensive than those of the Corolla. However, it should be noted that Elantra's diesel engine is bigger and more powerful.

    Specifications:
    The new Hyundai Elantra comes with a 2.0-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Both engines are more powerful and produce more torque than the ones that power the Toyota Corolla. Also, Hyundai offers the diesel Elantra with an optional automatic transmission, something the Corolla misses out on. Toyota Corolla Altis’1.4 L diesel is a bit too small for a car in this segment. While it does give the car a price advantage, it affects performance severely.

    In comparison, the Altis Petrol fares much better than its diesel counterpart. However, the Elantra is still more powerful and produces more torque. Both cars can be had with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission.

    Exterior Design:
    Most modern Hyundai's these days get very attractive exteriors and the new Elantra is no exception. Although, the Altis has now become a familiar face, it still looks very modern and quite appealing. It is worth mentioning that Toyota will launch a facelift of the Corolla Altis next year.

    Interior Design:
    The next generation Elantra features a sportier look on the inside. Much like the exteriors, the interiors of the new car look more mature and less in your face than before. The Corolla Altis gets very stylish yet a highly functional cabin that is made up of high-quality materials. Its asymmetric layout looks very modern and is likely to age very well. Corolla Altis gets a dual tone black -beige colour theme.

    Features:
    While the base models skimp out on a lot of features, the top-end trims come packed with equipment. Toyota offers the Corolla Altis with only 2 airbags. Hyundai offers 6 airbags at least in the top-spec trims. Elantra also gets ventilated seats, which the Corolla doesn’t. Therefore, the Elantra is more feature rich than the Corolla Altis.

    Verdict: 
    The biggest advantage the Toyota Corolla Altis had over the Hyundai Elantra was its price. With the launch of the new model, that advantage has all but disappeared. Also, in terms of engines, features, etc. the Elantra seems to be better than the Corolla Altis.

    Published On :2016-11-14 07:28:09.0 Antony J Vaikath
    It is great that you wish to buy a new car and we are glad to be a part of your new car purchase, the cars that you have selected are more than awesome and both of them have ground clearance of 160 MM which is adequate, these cars don't really scrape and this much of ground clearance is enough for most cities. You will have to be slightly careful while driving around speed bumps. Out of these two, BMW 3 Series 320i Luxury Line has got features like traction control, Smart Access Card Entry and also has a 8 speed gear box, on the other hand, Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 200 CGI features Moon Roof, Touch Screen infotainment system etc but has a 7 speed gear box. I would suggest you to please provide us with your contact number and the city that you wish to buy it from, so that we can provide the best possible resolution to you.
