i am confused between indica vista and swift diesel,whom should i prefer!
By Satinder 07 July 2009

i was so confused when i bought car the previous month... i had to choose between LPG / Petrol / Diesel. I looked at Wagon R Duo(3.7 lacs), Spark LPG(3.6lacs) and Indica Xeta LPG(3.3lacs).

Then I came across Indica Vista Aqua TDi. The moment I learned about its price n features I finalized that. It was available for 35k more than Wagon R Duo. So that it was an obvious choice, coz I got Diesel Car and in bonus Power Windows, Tubeless Tyres, Fog Lamps, More boot space, More rear space, Tilt adjustable steering, Dual Tone Interiors, Bigger Glove Box...

And today am happy with my choice. Moreover everyone n family is happy with my choice... I looked at Maruti Swift Diesel too, but that was too costly. And let me tell you that it has same Fiat engine as in Vista Quadrajet(Aqua/Aura), but its 60k more costly. If you look at the following link, you will find the differences:

See that vista n swift has same power, same torque, same displcement, etc. Also u get tubeless tyres, front n rear fog lamps and music system and more height,width n length... It will accomodate 3 persons in rear seat comfortbly, but swift won't...

So, why shud we pay premium for brand maruti? even tata is not behind in customer service and its world 6th most trusted brand.if u look at resale value then maruti ill fetch higher coz u r paying higher... vista is d model which has changed many things in one go and its far ahead of times in terms of technology...if u go for top end model of vista then too u save 30k n u get a better car...

i feel vista gets 10/10 in this comparison n swift gets 8/10..

plus i forgot to mention.. vista n swift r using same engine from FIAT, but maruti has made its own gear box that doesn't go well with fiat and as we all know tata n fiat have joint venture so the engine n gear box in vista is smooth and synchronized .... its a pleasure to drive......
