I would request every one to observe follwoing rule-

pls discuss the vehicle BUT pls do not discuss the other persons' opinion for that vehicle.

hope this will help in productive discussion on the cars and its features.

Well my mistake agreed.
Getting back to the point. A day will come when swift will be as common as a zen/santro and will seem that fresh. But getz is going to go nowhere with its current price positioning.
Same as elantra which i beleive should be on par with Optra.

Angry Only Getz vs Swift? why not Palio 1.6 sport also?

Why is it that only Getz & Swift are compared against? why not them with a Palio 1.6 Sport (aka 1.6GTX..) which has been relaunched recently?

If it is because Palio was launched 4 years back..at a time nobody knew what a premium hatchback is ( thanks to FIAT also for not promoting this concept like Maruti or Hyundai does now)...then its a SIN to exclude such a wonderful car...with its 1600cc peppy engine.

May be I am wrong and there is at least one thread available in this forum dealing with the same topic.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showth...ighlight=Subbu (Hyundai India's troubles-Business Today Article; May 8, 2005)

I think the capabilities (of running the HMIL show) of Mr.Subbu are in serious doubt now. It seems that he is a (very good, perhaps) marketing guy who can sell a product very well, provided if it can be made available within the X price bracket, ex-factory.

But, unfortunately, it seems that he is not the one who can bring down the price of a product to that X price.

You see, making a product for X price and selling a product for X price are two entirely different propositions with very little scope for comparison.

On the other hand, Mr. Subbu seems to be the right person to head the marketing of Fiat India.

I have no intentions to flame you, and I have no intention to buy a premium hatch either.

But, IMHO you should have read this before posting this.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6584 (FIAT Cuts Palio price by 22K)

Please read the posts of shuvc and deepakhon...

People in this thread are ref. two cars that they can actually buy (at least wait n buy). Waiting due to demand that is…

Cant we have a poll as to which is better Swift or Getz... seeing the interest the Baleno and Petra poll has generated it would be interesting to know how folks think about these two cars. I dont know how to create a poll (being a newb) so requesting someone to do this...

To me it seems a comparison between mass and class. The poll will certainly help in judging the popularity of one over the other. But to make an informed decision owners' feedback is the only helpful criterion.

yeah, certainly the poll will generate some interesting response.
