Post Swift or Getz or Palio 1.6sport

Guys..of late its noticed that Getz & Swift are being compared..but conveniently avoiding a power pack..none other than Palio 1.6 Sport (eka GTX..which is relaunched now).

So lets do a reality check which one stands where.


(one more tit bit: new santro with erlX technology has 32bit MPFI it seems.. ..Palio had it when it was launched in way back 2001. Hyundai claims they are giving the latest in engine technology to Indians..)

What a way to fool Indians!

Its always the Palio GTX for me... But I feel a correct poll would have been to include the 1.2 sibling as it is close to Swift and Getz in displacement figures.

Strange, coz FIAT dealer at Kolkata said it has not been launched. The Palio NV Sport still comes with the 1.2 engine

The Palio for me, even though I feel that the interiors of the other two cars would be a tad bit better.

As of now,
the poll reads -
Swift - 3
Getz - 0
Palio - 12.
And i have voted for Palio.
Reason -

Palio vs Getz -

Looks better,
better performance
better handling
Cheaper
more comfortable
Safer

Palio vs Swift -

More comfortable
Better quality
More Space
Better performance
Better Handling
Safer

Even as an overall car,
the Palio 1.2, 1.6, 1.9D is superior to their respective competition.

I voted for the Getz.
Sure it doesnt look as "FRESH" as the Swift or doesnt "PERFORM" like the Palio 1.6 , it surely does tick the right boxes in a lot of other places. It does things that it is supposed to do in the first place perfectly ...and in my opinion that matters !

Given below is a table where i have ranked the cars .. 1st , 2nd or last on different parameters that we consider while buying cars and the car that scores the least amount of points wins .

Cars Getz Palio 1.6 Swift
Looks 2 1 3
Interiors 1 3 2
Safety 1 1 1
Engine 2 1 2
Ride 1 2 1
& Handling
A.S.S 1 N.A (3) 1
Resale 1 N.A (3) 1
P.O.M 1 N.A (3) 1
F.E 1 3 1
TOTAL 11 20 13

N.A = Not Available

NOTE - the above ratings are my personal ratings and do not in any way reflect the views of others or force these views on others and if it does not match the views of others it is not a coincidence

well for me there was never any contest since the palio always rode and handled and generally felt far better than several mid-sizers,,esteem,ikon and accent included,,also the getz is already an outdated model internationally,it was launched in 2002 in Europe,,today u can pick up a 2001 1.2 elxps for about 1.5 lakhs,,VFM KING SIZE

Have always liked the palio. The looks were getting a bit dull after the launch of swift. But now after a small stint with the local body shop that has also been taken care of thanks to my brother. Looks better hotter and better than swift now IMHO. When i can get a second hand one for 2.5L there is no way I am going to vote eiter for the getz or the swift.

GTX will rule the segment unless other firms like skoda launch hatchbulls... new term for hatch' of the palio type.
