Why don't you try the Figo? It's well made, good to drive and wont cost 9L OTR. The Swift is too old, and you've already had a Polo before.
That was exactly my thought. For Asta variant, I've a to strecth a bit as well but then Figo seems to be the best bet. Just few minutes back, I decided on the Figo (after torturing karan561 and watching is video review multiple times). A final test drive pending for the Figo which will be the deciding factor.

Hyundai Elite i20 and its sibling Active i20 are way overboard on their pricing. Dec 2014, Asta (D) OTR was 9.55 L in bangalore and now Asta (D) is close to 11.5 L. Although AVN has been added to the feature list, crossing the 1 million mark (and 0.15 million more now) for a hatchback seems to be fleecing the customers. Yes the Elite and Active do contribute to the snob factor amongst the hatchback owners but price doesn't seem justified. But the way market reacts, (with no dent to the sales volume of i20 models, even with baleno and several other competitive hatchbacks, polo and abarth in the market), market seems to be numb to the price rise.

Why has Liva been missing so prominently here? Is it just the 'dated' looks? I look at the Power/BHP ratio, NCAP rating, cabin space and after-sales experience, and can't help but wonder why.

I do agree on the point of pricing where it is not only costlier than the competition mostly, but also the premium between petrol and diesel variants is high. But I politely disagree on the snob value part, more than snob value what we really gain is peace of mind. Hyundai interiors are comparable to germans, FIAT 93hp Punto / vento 1.6 is the closest in terms of power but they are equally costly and considering A.S.S aspect, you pay the premium. Also as mentioned in multiple threads, you also get better resale.
