Since money is not a contrain for you and also if you trust me the owner of Getz CRDi with 750 km on the meter(for taking care of test drive experience your not getting on Getz D), I would recommend to you to go for Getz D. The only things its lacking is ABS which is important if you drive beyond 120km/hr regularly otherwise current brakes are quite capable with wider tire I have used. I have checked atleast 5 times to check its capability of braking once at 100km/hr twice at 85mk/hr twice at 65km/hr. Its just stands still.

Go for Getz it rocks and I assure you'd not repent your choice.
The only competition it has in its class would be from Fabia which is due for launch in next 2 months.


Suggestion is mine, choice is yours.


cheers

Between the Getz and the Swift I would go for the Getz. Its got a much more powerful engine than the Swift and the ride quality and feel is also above the Swift. A Swift with a Petes box will be around 90bhp whereas the Getz is 110 bhp stock and 130 bhp with a Petes box. Also look at how common Swifts are, almost everyone these days seems to be buying one.

Since budget isnt an issue why dont you wait for the Fabia also.

The squeaks can be arrested pretty quickly -just take it to your MASS center.
I agree that some better quality material could've been used as door fillers.

Please lemme know the Getz Crdi Correct FE in City and Highway with AC on.I too planned for buying Getz Crdi or Swift D.
My Friends told me that Swift returns around 16-18Kms in City and 18-24 Kms in Highway with AC on 100%.
Whether it's true or exaggerated FE.
Now the LPG also increased to Rs.32.55/lt.Diesel is 34.50/lt.
Might have rised after new year by Rs.2.
But comparitively Diesel is economical than LPG.

My VDi is about a week old and has its fair share of rattles already!!

Booked VDi (abs) on July 6th.
Took delivery in December.

Booked Getz CRDI on Sept 27th
Dealer calls me for delivery on Nov 23rd (as promised) but my heart said no.

I know this doesnt help AT ALL, but im just saying

Unfair to judge a build quality by looking at the TD vehicle .. When I bought my Swift petrol 2 yrs ago everyone was saying the same thing about the swift even then . 2 yrs later and 50000 kms + on the odo and that too mostly on bad roads I don't have any rattling issues . I wonder why ? Also a lot of ppl had issues with the so called weal clutch of the swift .... I still havn't had the need to replace the clutch in my car and again I wonder why ??

So when you have to decide ... let yourself be the final judge as we all may confuse you even more than what you were when you first posted here .

Cheers

I beg your pardon, but isn't it unfair to comment that the Swift isn't a competition for the Getz? I agree that the Getz is a wonderful vehicle, but a winner like Swift should not be disgraced like this. .

decide the factors that u r comfortable.
Hi Ramsagar

How can the resale value of GETZ Diesel be commented now.

Accent CRDI goes for a very good resale value when compares with any of maruthi(diesel) cars.

since money is not the criteria, wait for getz prime crdi, with abs, and buy it.
its bigger and a better car.

well please make sure you replace the stock footwear of the car be it swift or the getz you buy, because the stock ones are pathetic for the kind of pull these mean machines have! have a portion of budget reserved for it!

i still regret not having changed my stock tyres of my accent viva crdi at the purchase time, and i am just waiting for the tyres to wearout!, the stability and the ride quality improves by leaps and bounds with a better and wider tyre trust me on this and you wouldnt regret it!
