Expert`s comment:

Though both are good in performance, Swift VDI would be a better choice on account of more space,power and proven performance.

Swift would be a better choice...But bit noisy than i20D..Depends on your budget.

Go for swift. :). Ford figo looks silly and is a copy of ford fusion. Sucks. Also the maintanance cost of swift is lower . Nice car. Good value for money

Final choice is yours.But before buying , You should check certain technical parameters.These are 1) Who has higher BHP within same price.2) Who has better mielage.3)Whether Euro III or Euro IV.( This will give you higher price when you will resale.)3)Whether carry power steering and power windows (additional)even fitted with music system or not.4) Cost of spare parts.5)Easy availability of service centres.Just compare with comparative charts which is available in many sites.

I would suggest you to go for shift VDI without any thought. I am using it for last one year and totally satisfied with the performance.

Just before a week I was in your situation.
I was planning to Buy a deisel car and my choices were
1. Swfit LDI
2. Figo
3. I20
4 Polo

I have seen all the cars and finally on last Sunday I have taken the Delivery of My first Small Car SWFIT LDI.
Now why I have done that:-
SWFIT is a common car I agree but if you compare its the best Hatchback Car in India by looks.
Engine DDIS is the best in class and looking at the others experience the Avg is 22Km/pl on highways
Figo got better interiors and Plastic than Maruti.
Maruti overall maintenance is cheap, FOrd be ready to spend a good amt of money.
Resale Swift is the best and FOrd u better check the resale.
Overall I think SWIFT is the best but if you can wait for POLO than go for it.
