@Souljah - We cant comapre the Swift with the Indica, so the Getz is the obvious competitor.

i have voted for getZ CDRi VGT
then comes the SWIFT DDiS
then the fusion TDCi

if it was me then i would never buy GETZ unless there is the ABS option is open, that car is too powerful, for a hatch back or even for verna chassis ABS is a must for the control!

swift can still be managed since the acceleration is lesser in comparision to the CDRi VGT engine and the stock brakes with out ABS do a decent job!

the fusion i would not consider as it would be phased out soon IMO, and would cost a BOMB for the parts later on!

Usually people estimate how Getz D will drive after driving Getz Petrol & Verna Diesel

Power is the same, gear ratios are different, suspension is better then Verna, the Getz is no speed boat.

okay i got the picture now thanks for the info busa, a better suspension does help keep the car on ground i guess, because the first time i drove verna felt like i was dragging and the car felt very powerful compared to my crdi viva, so sort of expected the same, the verna felt more like it was flying than on road, so felt with that kind of power one would definitely need an ABS!

I spoke to Hyundai today, they plan to hike prices of all their cars by 3-4% including the Getz, so get the getz fast and get going.

You need wider tires on the Getz.
