Stick to petrol, it makes more sense for your kind of running. The power thing high or low, you get used to it. Swift P is no slouch performer

If you intend to keep the car for long, than go for the SWIFT VDI. It satisfies your driving pleasure and also keeps you smiling with the fuel bills. In turn You would start logging on more km's if its a diesel car just for the heck of it.

On the flip side, if you are looking for short term ownership, petrol swift makes more sense

Default Update

Thank you all for your valuable suggestions.

Although I was very tempted to go for the Diesel variant, but for practical reasons, I finally booked a Red Swift Vxi a couple of days back. The usual waiting period is around 1 to 1.5 months but I am trying my best to get it sooner.

Have been reading the ICE threads for the past fews days and according to by budget, have shortlisted the following till now :

HU: Pioneer 6950
Rear Speakers: JBL GTO 937
Front Speakers: ??? (Coaxial) - may go for comps later as currently i'm not able to accomodate them in my budget
Amp: JBL CS60.4 or Blau GTA4 (please suggest)
Sub: JBL CS1204B

I intend to go for all the above items without B&W, except for the speakers as I have heard that a lot of fake ones are doing the rounds in the market.

Tyres:

Will be replacing the stock ones with 185/70/14 Michellin Energy XM1 as soon as I take my car out of the showroom.
I am yet to confirm the prices for my tyrewala.

Question: Hope there won't be any problem fitting them on the stock rims?

I am thinking of getting alloys later after 2-3 months. I am in the process of shortlisting the right models.

Suggestion and recommendations on ICE, Tyres and Alloys are most welcome.

Thanks.

Arup

HI,

A lot has changed over the past few days.
The maruti guys were clueless about how soon I would get my car. In the mean time, I got in touch with a fellow BHPian, LokeshG who was buying an Aveo for his dad. Enquired about the car and got a very good deal and hence booked an Aveo 1.4 for myself.

Will hopefully be getting my car in day!

Hey Arup, from which dealer you are buying Aveo, how much it is costing you, and what is the discount you are getting?

Hi Arup,

You have narrowed down to the Swift twins. Have you considered the Aveo Uva. It is a very capable car and a lot more spacious as well. The Petrol Swift ZXI is makes for a good value package with ABS, Alloys, Climate Control. Moreover the Waiting period for the Swift Diel is something you may like to consider while taking your decision.

Smile Got My Aveo!

HI!

This is to update everybody that I finally took the delivery of my Aveo yesterday.

@ CrAzY dRiVeR: Yes, since my car was registered on 10th of August, it will be covered under the 'Chevrolet promise' scheme. In fact I am thinking for buying their 3 yrs service package for Rs 8800 which covers all servicing cost for the next three years (including parts and labour)

I have also got my ICE setup today. Will start a new thread on my review of Aveo and its ICE
.
Would like to thank everybody for their suggestions and support.
