The name's Balakrishnan, aka ballkey. I'm just another IT guy, and like driving a lot. Just got my hands on a Azure grey Swift Vxi. 'tis my first car, hence did a lot of research here. Test drove pretty much most of the mid-sizers including Accent,Getz,Indigo TDi etc(< 6 lakhs). Lusted after the Ford Fusion, and almost went for it. The Fusion+ABS just went above my budget, and Ford wouldnt sell the base model. Big sedans like Accent/Baleno didnt look easy to drive in the city, so they were out too.
So the Swift. I didnt care much for teh much vaunted styling (I still dont)-but liked the specs & price. The overall experience is nice, except for the coal-mine theme of the interiors. Anyway, thanks to all teambhp members for sharing their views, and helping thousands like me make their big decisions.
Happy 2006 everybody
