Compare swift dire vs scross
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.

It is hard to pick one out of the cars that you have selected. Both cars are quite nice to drive and compete neck to neck with each other. i20 has got some extra comfort features like glove box cooling, Air Quality Control and rear AC vents in Hyundai i20 Asta 1.2 . On the other front Baleno has ABS, EBD and dual airbags which are standard across all the variants. Baleno is lighter as compared to i20 which helps it to attain higher speed in less amount of time. i20 on the other hand is heavy and is quite confident to drive over turns. Our pick here would be Baleno as it is fresh and also is easy to maintain. On top of that, it offers you better fuel economy. Click here to check out the comparison.
Both cars are great, Duster is compact, less powerful and short in height hence is easier to maneuver in traffic. Due to the less power that it generates, it is also more fuel efficient. On the other front, Safari is massive, it has a bigger engine, it is bigger is dimensions and hence, is less fuel efficient. In order to choose one out of these, you need to look at the conditions you would drive your car in. If you are going to drive mostly in cities, go for Duster as it is more "Car" like and if that is not the case, go for Safari. Safari would not be a good choice if you drive mostly in traffic as it hefty and massive and therefore, it isn't easy to maneuver it. When we drove them, we got about 13 KMPL by Duster and 10.4 KMPL by Safari. Click here to take a quick look at the features on offer.
I am looking forward to buy a Renault duster Petrol RxL. I couldn't find any useful reviews for the petrol version , the diesel has many. Going for the petrol one due to the post 10 year de-registration of diesel vehicles in Delhi. Any insights regarding the petrol version will be helpful.
Both of them belong to different segments. You will be able to purchase the base variant of Brezza in the price of the top end KUV 1OO. If features are something that you look forward to, you should go for KUV 1OO and if rigidity and better space is something that you are looking for, you should choose Brezza.
