I am fully confused in PETROL or DIESEL(Maruthi Swift LXI or Maruthi Swift VDi)? Which one is good, Showroom guys says if u r travelling around 100Km/per day go for VDI otherwise go for LXI.... They told dat it will be maintenance problem for Diesel(VDI).Per day i will go 30 - 50Km Please can any one suggest on the same.

    i am bit confused b/w zxi or vdi ....

    Aryan Singh |22 Nov,2015 06:02:00 PM

    Yeah it is true that diesel cars make a lot of noise compared to petrol.

  • Ipe Sam |10 Dec,2010 11:48:18 AM

    Im travelling within 30 km everyday. Once in a quarter may go for a long ride apart from the city. What do you suggest(Vdi/vxi or LDi/Lxi)?

    ivon |05 Jul,2011 11:35:04 AM

    use travels

    ellyas |30 May,2015 09:42:50 PM

    Vdi suitable

    please go by town bus

    Suguna Isabel |02 Feb,2013 12:07:21 AM

    Town bus (city bus) will not give the comfort and flexibility of travel that a car Vxi or Vdi will give to Ipe Sam. If Ipe is looking for comparison of economy, capital cost difference between diesel and petrol models should also be considered. Added to that, the low usage of 30 km a day will make the decision in favour of a petrol vehicle. If the family has already a petrol vehicle, the second vehicle could be a diesel one.

    sheikh sahid |31 Jan,2015 02:05:04 PM

    Vdi select....this too good for your inquiry

    km |27 Feb,2015 12:32:16 PM

    Then you can tack VDi or ldi both of them is good option

    Jatin Bardhan |28 Dec,2015 12:39:17 PM

    ldi vdi but u should go for a disel ..

  • CarDekho Team |11 Dec,2010 02:32:49 PM

    You need a Diesel car if your usage is at least 80-100kms daily, for your usage stick to the Petrol Lxi or Vxi variant Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Dear User, if your per month running is more than 1500 kilometers you can opt for the diesel variant of Swift. If its less than 1500 kilometers you can opt for petrol variant. Thanks

  • Rahul |23 Sep,2011 03:14:06 AM

    I want to buy the New SWIFT ... but can someone tell me why we need to buy petrol, if the daily trip is 30 kms. Is it suggested as the fuel cost won't be much for that distance or based on cost of the car? or are there any technical issues that diesel engine cannot perform well for 800 to 1000 kms per month ... Cardekho team plz clarify this as majority of people have this doubt? not just which one but WHY?? Thanks in advance ...

    What would be impact on the engine of the Maruti Swift VXI car if i get a CNG kit fit into it and how mmuch would the maintenance cost increase because of this , please guide

  • Krishna |09 Feb,2012 08:30:44 PM

    Hi All, I am also planning to buy a new swift, and I wanted to check reviews before buying it. After reading all the reviews, one thing I cannot understand is that, when you travel 30 to 50 kms per day, would it be less cost when you go for a petrol car? It is the matter how frequently you use the car..I heard that diesel cars have had some maintenance costs when you keep the car at home for long time. Except this maintenance , I do not see any benifit in petrol car. When you use the car 365 days, then it is always better to go for a diesel car..

    arul |02 Mar,2012 02:39:42 AM

    @ krishna, frnd d new 2011 model of swift has an hassle-free engine. which means less amt of sludge or no sludge gets deposited in d diesel engine.

    Tushar |03 Aug,2012 11:53:49 AM

    Piyush, I think you should go for a Diesel Car.

  • PIYUSH |02 Aug,2012 12:59:31 PM

    SORRY yearly useage is not more than 5000 km per year. which variant should i prefer petrol or diesel???

  • Suguna Isabel |01 Feb,2013 11:53:20 PM

    Maruti's literature in the show room and other internet advertisements state that Swift Vdi car has a Width of 1695 mm. But the actual width is about 200 mm more. What exactly is the width? (Maruti show room staff do not have this information, nor are they interested in measuring and providing the correct width to the prospective customers). Why is this wrong information finding a place in Maruti literature. This research is delaying me in deciding upon the make of new car that I am planning to buy.

  • Aditya |19 Apr,2015 11:07:47 PM

    If you drive more than 100 km only then choose diesel otherwise extra money you are paying for the diesel model is waste (2 lakhs paying for that car who's maintenance cost is much higher than the petrol model )
