Cars Q&A

Has the Maruti already introduced the K series engine in its Petrol Swift VXI ? What is difference between K series engine and current G Series engine ? How does it affect the performance of the car ? I am now faced with buying either I20 Magna or Swift VXI petrol. Please guide me which one is the better choice, as I ride only about 50km a day.

New K series qualifies for Bharat IV emission norms which G series does not, also if you drive 5oKm per day then it is more advisible to go for Swift/Ritz Diesel engine rather than Petrol.

Expert`s comment:

G series engines are currently used does dot complaint with BS IV norms. Kseries engines are updated version engines and meeets emisio norms of Bharath IV.

the K series is an upgraded engine, newer technology, as mentioned meeting higher more stricter emission norms.
But if u r wanting to choose btwn an i20 and a swift vxi, well the i20 magna is far superior in looks, comfort, plastics quality, fit and finish quality, definitely better body lines and weight.
The swift may definitely be cheaper to run and maintain, so u have to decide, do u want a car that just does its job or u want a car that does its job and also adds to ur feel good factor. Swift does its job perfectly, but the i20 has the X-factor.
Finally its ur call.

Happy driving.
