4) Swift LXi

Initially we were going for the Spark LT but my parents complained for the lack of space. We will be using the car mostly in the city. I will drive the car as soon as I have finished my driving lessons. After sales service should be good than a FIAT atleast. We will travel like 500 kms a month. Well, the this car will be father's first and last car and so we are keeping it forever. So guys, what do you say?
check out Indigo V series. The petrol one would be cheaper.

Swift , a no if you want space and quality. Getz and Aveo are good choice. But wont Aveo be the costliest if the lot?

edit: Chevrolet : Aveo U-VA : Models Base Aveo cost almost 4lac in Delhi!

A rumour is going around that Maruti will provide discounts on Swift from August. Do you guys have any news about that?

There was this other rumour that Maruti is going to bring in the M series engine for the Swift. Infact, that is almost confirmed news.

May be, the dates are getting closer.

hmmm...let me ask you guys another thing. i have learnt that the dealers give discounts if pressed hard upon. So what's the best way to get discounts and accessories from a particular dealer. And to all the Kolkata BHPIAN'S if anyone of you know a good maruti dealer who can give discounts and fit the swift in my budget, please reply.

Even i heard new M (replacing G) series for the Swift and new K (replacing F) series for new WagonR.

@ Soumya, is there only one Maruti dealership? if there are more than one, use their price qoutes against each other. This usually helps in getting better discounts.

Have heard some people complaining that Swift has got a weak bottom end, while the top-end is awesome (much like the esteem it shares engine with, it has to be revved to have fun).

However, from the comments on the SX4 (has M series as well), the bottom end and mid-range seems better. The car could be more driveable in city conditions.

And also, the M series engine is modern compared to the current one.

Can anyone provide the source for this information? And what's the time period from when it will be implemented. Will it affect the price of Swift?

and more thing. the current situation is that my parents are pressing for getz 1.1 GLE (space,price) and santro XO model (lot's of features) and I am in for the Swift VXI model (looks, performance, fuel economy). my parents don't like the looks of swift and they are not keen on spending the extra money when they can get more SPACE in getz GLE 1.1 as they are not to keen on the performance factor.

As youths, we tend to bias on looks and performance but old people consider the other factors as priority. Regarding the Mileage swift I think it will give 11-12 in city.

Thats understandable.

One or the other will have to be compromised, thats there in every car purchase. Finding the best package suitable for all of you is the difficult thing. And as for the source of info http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...o+get+M+series (Swift to get M Series engine)
