Hi,
You can go ahead and buy Swift.Its truly successful and does gove good mieleage apart from spacious interiors.However dissdvantage is that its huge presence on road does reduce the charm of buying a new car.

I have decided to go for Swift Zxi for the price of 6 Lakhs which I find an equivalent one in any other make of FIAT grand Punto,or i20,or Volkswagen Polo will not be available.
The Emotion pack costs around 7 Lakhs and i20 for 7 Lakhs. No doubt Punto and i20 may have some extras to Maruti Swift Zxi,but my main worry about future model continuation,spare parts prices and availability,and Service. In all these spheres, I find Hyundai and FIAT are lacking.
Tata may any time stop FIAT service as it eats its business of Tata products,as Fiats are gaining Ground,and Hyundai are famous for stopping Getz, and other models,when they find it is not picking up . They may stop i20 also.
Volkswagen Polo is very much new and we do not know how it will fare.
Hence I will soon purchase Swift,not for its SHAPE,but for
Service and continuation of my earlier Maruti Zen ,and a friendly Works Manager at the Chowgules PUNE dealership.
GOOD day,
Yours
