Looks apart, Santro & Wagon R score closely as many has pointed out already. Both these give a mileage of around 12 kmpl in city. Here's the Autocar's comparision of these two cars - http://www.indiacar.com/roadtest/sho...05_a/index.htm

None of these cars (Alto, Santro, Wagon R) come with factory fitted CNG. I don't think CNG is available anywhere in Hyd. Stay away from Zen. It is going to be phased out sooner or later.

Thanx a lot for the valuable inputs.Now I am thinking a little higher .Need info abt Swift and Getz.Now the battle is between Alto or Xing or Swift or Getz.Please give an exhaustive opinion about the cars keeping in mind different parameters like performance,mileage,comfort,maintenance etc .No issues about the price.

It would be wise for you to first decide which Segment you want to go with. A or B or B+.

How can one compare Alto with Swift/Getz

Hi,

As u r going to take a new car replacing maruti 800....it would be logical to go for a mauti exchange program.....both alto and zen are good cars..alto gives arnd 16-17 in the city whereas zen gives arnd 14......
maintainence is cheap....

Regards,

A small update... in case you missed it, Maruti is launching the WagonR with factory fitteg LPG option. Give it a very hard look. It will be the most FE car one can ever buy. Also, AutoLPG is very safe. Period. A factory fitted option means do not even wonder about the safety factor. Moreover Hyderabad has many AutoLPG pumps now. I do not know where you live but I am definite you will find one closest to you.

The final battle is only between Swift and Getz.
Just came back from the test drives.It is decided that I would either go for a Swift or a Getz.No more confusion.I guess we can compare these two as they belong to the same segment[correct me if I am wrong].Is it true that "Getz is a superior car when compared to Swift",if so why?.Which is more economical in terms of mileage.Waiting for your opinions.

My take -
Swift if you enjoy spirited driving and are ok with those radical looks.
Getz for driving refinement and comfort and space.

Mileage is about same for both, maybe swift has an edge there.
