Looks: 1. Fiesta 2. Verna 3. City
Engine performance: 1. Verna 2. City 3. Fiesta
Dynamics: 1. Fiesta 2. City 3. Verna
Space: Not sure.. never sat in a Verna. City feels more refined than Fiesta
Dont buy a Swift Diesel if you already have a petrol, unless you really really love the petrol version.
If it was up to me I'd buy the Fiesta because the City looks terrible and the Verna's selling point (that fantastic CRDI engine) is something you can enjoy very rarely. The Fiesta is a well sorted car (though i would pick the 1.6 petrol)

Thanks for so many replies guys. I dont mind waiting another month for Baleno (new) launch, but I heard they are not going to launch deisel version initially. Swift Deisel I guess is ruled out... I will take TD of Verna again as the car I drove was pretty badly used.
Currently Fiesta/City are in contention. Only grouse I have against Fiesta is that it looks the tiniest of the cars I am considering (width wise), and just looks like a new model of Ikon. Secondaly, the engine specs just dont look good on paper. Driving the car though was a totally different experience. I guess I would take TD again to make up my mind.
I will be finalizing purchase in July. So I do have a few months to do some research.

a) you might land up with more options that might get all the current options out dated
b) you will anyway require test drives then coz you will be as confused as now, since regular human beings cant virtually keep test drive experiences fresh that long.. lol
c) the dealer guys will be nagging you day in day out till then once you have test drives
unless the excitement and the itch cant keep you off test drives, i surely cant
Meanwhile keep researching on the current models that are in contention.
I vote for Fiesta Diesel (since you want diesel) otherwise City

Aseem, the more research you do, the more you end up confused is what i feel when it comes to spending your money on cars. Not that i am saying NO to it.
As far as the Fiesta looking like a newer version of the Ikon is concerned, i beg to disagree. During its development Fiesta took into account all/most of the negatives from the Ikon experience, so as not to repeat the same.

I own a Verna 110bhp Diesel top end. It gives me 14 KM per liter with AC in city. It is a power house and the engine is excellent. The gear box could have been better. The 2nd gear is short of power at low RPM which is common in all Hyundai cars. But at high RPH the Turbo Buster kicks in and the car literally flys on road. I have had an excellent expereince using this car for about 11 months now. The top end comes with ABS which is a must with a car of 110bhp - i mean it.
Verna negatives - rear seat leg space is very less
Prior to choosing this car I test drove Fiesta, Swift dzire, Logan, Tata Safari Dicor 140 bhp and Magnum.
Positives - Excellent driving comfort, Perfect Gear Box, You dont feel short of power, mileage, cheaper than Verna
Negatives - I read a lot of blogs which said its service cost is very high as its spare parts are expensive, I am 6.2ft tall and so my leg use to hit the dashboard even when I have pulled my seat back until I can comforatably reach the steering, 85bhp only
Positives - Value for money, ABS, Excellent Interiors, comfortable drive, climate control AC, Alloey wheels, mileage, air bags
Negatives - looks and power
Positives - mileage, spacious, less expensive
negatives - i drove the one that had airbags and the steering was very stiff so stiff that i would not even think of buying it. this could be coz it is a test car... which many times gives wrong impression
Safari Dicor 140 bhp
Positives - what a SUV - excellent, Amazing power, Excellent view while driving, very receptive engine
Negatives - I was worried about the services costs which is always an issue with TATA cars as they tend to keep giving problems after a few years, to huge to drive in city.
Positives - 121 bhp excellent power, spacious

Go for fiesta.
Ford is now in a mood to compete in the INdian market (see the sales figures of september 2009). Understand that after sales services also improving.
