The esteem, OHC, Baleno & the Lancer are all low slung & hence more aerodynamic which plays a huge part in the acceleration. The swift is not only tall, but also very very fat.

The Swift shares some characteristics with the Baleno due to the Baleno head and crank commonality (if I'm wrong pl excuse). The characteristic being power coming in after ~ 3-3.5k rpm. That and the tall gearing on the Swift make it comparitively less responsive in lower gears and capable of a higher end whack than the Esteem, I guess.

someone here mentioned that bigger diameter of the tyre only makes the car faster,excuse me for asking you this"but are you in the right state of mind..?" the company does various test's to decide stock tyre size and then according to the power of the car and the body dimension and weight a wheel size is decided,using larger wheel's on a car which is not capable of taking them can lead to drop in power,and as far as i know the swift gear box is a short ratio gear box and the esteem is a tall ratio gear box..please do correct me if i am wrong,this also helps the esteem derive a better fuel mileage in comparision to the swift,ofcourse other factors such as weight of the car and also the torque curve and the fuel maps help in the process..cheers..happy revvin..!

Swift has shoter gear ratios than the esteem.
One of the factors making swifts slower is the intake manifold design. On the swift it is optimised more for low to mid RPMs .

Feel is difficult to quantify
I always felt bigger/ heavier cars conceal the feel, e.g Mercury Sable, Camry did not give the same fast feel like corolla and civic.
