ONLY SWIFT DIESEL, NO COMPITITION

Answer by DEEPAK 11 November 2008

Check out for Swift diesel if its not very tight 4 u and u can also look for Logan Diesel or New Incica Vista ( Very Spacious) with the same engine of Swift.

Answer by Amardeep 11 November 2008

Swift Diesel No car can do just like that.
But after one month Hyundai I-20 will be launched in Petrol as well as Diesel. so pls wait for that.

Answer by Amit Garg 11 November 2008

If u r ready to spend 7 lac then go for Mahindra Logan(Midsize Car).

Answer by Raja 11 November 2008

Dear Rahul ,
i would suggest you to take a look at ford ikon deisel (Talk of the town), fitted with a familiar rocam deisel engine which tried and tested in the market and also praised , with a price tag of 5.19 ex showroom delhi sounds decent enough, also a gud news as ford started manufacturing spares in india which will improve the economy .
my vedict go for ford ikon ...a better car o drive with better street prsence.

Answer by Harsh Mani 11 November 2008

Nothing comes closer to GETZ diesel crdi (dicor) turbo, same engine from verna, rocking, 1.5 L, 110 bhp VS Swift ldi/vdi 1.25 L, 75 bhp not to say about the space available in Getz.

Answer by Gcp 11 November 2008

If you are on a tight budget go in for the swift diesel if you want a hatch or the ikon diesel if you want a sedan otherwise if you don't mind stretching your budget a bit go in for the ford fiesta diesel as it is currently the best diesel car in this segment.

Answer by Rohit 11 November 2008

i think Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire ZDi Rs.7,09,222.or
Mahindra-Renault Logan Edge DLS 1.5 dci ABS Rs.7,05,460.this is the best choice.

Answer by Het 11 November 2008

IKON 1.4 DUROTORQ...DONT LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE

Answer by Latif 11 November 2008

Rahul,I sold my swift diesel and brought the Ikon 1.4 diesel..and I am glad I did that..its a super car

Answer by Kiran 11 November 2008

Answer by Adithya 11 November 2008

Wow!
Terrific responses.
Sedans would be big for me to drive in mumbai.
I like Fiesta very much though.

So shortlisted babes are
1:Swift
2:Getz diesel (had forgotten abt it)
3:Fabia
4:i-20 to be launched after month.

swift-Maruti so good service always.Smooth.good mileage.

getz_Diesel- Have not seen much of this on road.But hyundai is also a winner in india and provides good service.Will definitely go for test drive. I would say this would be my first choice.Thanks.

Fabia:I like brand skoda,Fabia I heard its high mantainence .ll have to check the price. Any idea on road price for this car in mumbai?

1-20: lets watch and see
GURUs

any more advice is awaited.

Answer by Rahul 11 November 2008

Competetive for Swift Diesel is Indica Vista Diesel higher version take indica vista diesel (avura) Icon diesel new & Logon diesel is the best

Answer by Satya Prasad Khammam 11 November 2008

Guys Check Fiat Linea. Best In Class among the rivals. So Guys plug to this.

Kamal.

Answer by Kamal 11 November 2008

If you want outright power the getz diesel is unbeatable as it is faster than even a skoda laura but the chassis is not strong enough 2 take that kind of power.Out of the cars you have shortlisted the swift diesel makes most sense.
Alternatively give the Fusion diesel and the Fiat Palio Multijet diesel a shot as apart from the fabia these cars are the most solid ones around and offer excellent value for money especially the palio,am telling this cause I own one and am very impressed by it,cause with the kind of roads that are there in mumbai nothing short of a battle tank would do...

Answer by Rohit 11 November 2008

I feel Fiat Palio Stile diesel is a good alternate option.,It is solid,same engine[Fiat people even claim that it is a next gen. engine],roomy,has better ride quality and a value for money car.

Answer by Prabakar 12 December 2008

Between 6L - 7L, the best option will be Getz Prime GVS 1.5 CRDI Diesel. It beats all its competition, with its super silent engine, Space (believe me its a big small car you won't believe untill you get inside one), looks and Power (110 Bhp). Go for it.

Answer by Avinash 12 December 2008

Dear Rahul,
From your chioces, if you can strech your budget to skoda fabia or getz deisel . I would suggest you yo go for skoda fabia as its drive quality is far better than hyundai getz .its well built car and comes from a well off family volkswagen . and trust you would not regret your choice ..

Answer by Harsh Mani 12 December 2008

Fabia is 3 cylinder which means higher NVH levels (Engine is less refined as compared to 4 cylinder engines) all other models/make discussed above are 4 cylinder so more refined compared to Fabia.

Answer by GCP 12 December 2008

DEAR RAHUL ,YOU HAVE CHOSEN SWIFT DEISEL MY YOUNGER BROTHER IS ALSO USING SWIFT DIESEL FROM ONE YEAR IT IS WONDERFULL MACHINE .I THINK YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE BEST IN ITS SEGMENT GO AHEAD WITH THE SAME.

Answer by Syed Omer Hussain 12 December 2008

Expert`s comment:

Hi,
Swift diesel is a good choice the best alternative would be a Fiat Palio 1.3 Multijet for its solid build,refreshing new looks ,price and power.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 12 December 2008

Try out the Honda Amaze Diesel. You will be pleasantly suprised with this winner from the Honda stable, and fit's the amount you want to spent on it (6-7 k). Give it a shot.
