Pros : Lot of features and true value for money

Cons : slightly underpowered in second gear but not an issue

Look and Style: Scores high in looks compared to all the hatchbacks available.

Comfort: Very comfortable for long drives and you would love to spend maximum time in the car.

Pickup: Pickup is a slight problem, only in the 2nd gear,otherwise I don't find any problem and that also you would feel the pickup slightly lagging only if your car is fully loaded with 5 passengers and some luggage otherwise it is perfectly fine. 

Mileage: Well honestly I really did not bother much but then I drove for 1050 Kms and have put petrol of 3800 rs being 71 Rs a litre and still have around 7 to 8 litre left in the car and my maximum driving have been on traffic-less roads and more on the highway and without AC on.

Overall Experience: Its been a month since I own the car and the overall experience right from the beginning including the dealer response, the delivery time, the discounts and the service has been top class.

    Hi Ajay, Comparison is healthy, when you actually compare an apple with another apple. Most of the people, blindly compare with SWIFT, I agree SWIFT is a good one, only when your consern is about cost, mileage, initial pickup, when it comes to comfort, luxury, class, other are many, i20 is best in the class, comparitively SWIFT has initial pickup, only because of the light weight shell/over all weight, i20 is a solid one with good shell and over all weight and its competitors are Polo, Fabia, Punto and Figo. I too love SWIFT, only because of volume in the market, people prefer that its best in the market. i20 interiors good/better interiors, look, comfort, boot space, safety, muscular, other(many), all these listed are not to compare with SWIFT, as I very clear an apple can be compared with another apple not with an orange. My overall experience, i20 is a monster/muscular/robust in the class, out of Polo, Fabia, Punto and Figo, honestly my vote would be for Punto either Diesel or Petrol technology/performance.

    dear sarvanan punto has poor ground clearance,much maintanance,expencive parts,nd its fiat is fiat nd hyundai ishyndai.i20 has more cc than punto

    Saravanan S |08 Mar,2012 09:12:41 PM

    Hi Ankur, Absolutely agree with you views that Hyundai i20 is better than punto, still other than i20, punto is a wonderful machine in other parameters. Fyi in this segment all i20, polo, punto, fabia more or less has same ground clearance from top fabia, i20, punto and polo when its loaded you might experience inconcenience in the uneven speed breaks.

    Maruti Suzuki Swift is best hatchback in india.....

    Amjad khan |17 Feb,2012 11:50:43 AM

    Dear Ajay what made you say that ? have u ever used the Hyundai i20 car.? I don't deny that maruti swift is a good car but obviously not the best hatch stands nowhere compared to what hyundai i20 offers..I have used maruti cars before and never wanted to go for a maruti after that..I mean its very local... in the long run maruti cars have lot of maintainance issues though the maintainance is cheap and any road side mechanic could repair..The interior and exterior and the quality what swift stands no where near to hyundai i20..Also status conscious people would never stick to maruti..

    priyangshi |04 Mar,2012 11:23:58 AM

    My i20 purchased 2011january clocked 15000 km not a single problem till date.Swift no way near to it in terms of engine capacity/torque/power /interiors/Facilities/boot space /weight and space inside , No area its comes near to i20

    Dear Ajay please give the right comment dont misguide genuine buyers..Prove it to me that i20 is a bad car..and i have many reasons to prove it to you that its a true value for money and the best buy..
