Urgent Help on the same old boring topic
I know it's the same old boring question which I am posting here but seriously I require some urgent help. I am buying car for the 1st time & hence dunno much abt technical specifications and stuff.
I am now evaluating Swift, which has recieved good reviews. Swift petrol will be a bit expensive for me as the car will be driven mostly on city roads & even dealers claim that swift will give 11-12kmpl. So again, there is confusion. Hence, Swift Diesel, which will shoot up my budget substantially but since it is a Diesel car with good milege, the running cost shouldn't be higher.
Kindly advice If I should go ahead with Swift Disel [LDi or VDi :-( ] or stick to Santro Xing. I don't want to wait any longer as Festive season is fast approching and I expect heafty discounts.
Your advice will be invaluable.
Sorry for posting such a long thread
With thanks & regards

Indica Xeta 1.4 CNG would totally justify your long drives, especially in delhi's painful bumper-bumper rush hour traffic. And the 1.4 is reasonably quick (not a swift diesel but decent enough)
Downer is point 6- Not as much fun as swift diesel, but saving 1.25 lakhs, travelling in AC at ~1.1rs/km is pretty good. Haven't TDed a Santro CNG, but donno how well it performs.

Tarun we are honoured that you want the advice of this forum on your first car. The problem is the question you are asking has been asked gazillions of times on this forum with more or less the same set of doubts.
Please do your research on the existing What Car threads and you will get all your answers in there. There is nothing new to add by now on any of these cars. The answers of the members do not change only they get diluted with repeated typing.
