Why not considering some Seden by just giving some 50K+. More safe/space/feel/looks ...

Just saw the Ritz at a Showroom, and it is no where near to swift or i10. to me, the looks are not as good as of swift or a i10. from back it looks a bit funny(no shape) justflat. for me 1st option would be a swift and then i10.

considering your usage just go for a diesel car.i own a swift Ldi and am extreamly satisfied with the performance and the mileage is amazing too ( 16 in city and 21 on highway). if you like the looks and design of the ritz go for it as its a newer model and less on road.but swift is a tried and tested product and will be more fun to drive than the ritz.
also you may consider the indica vista quadrajet/ palio multijet though the latter might be out of production in a few months time.
if you have the patience to wait please do so for the grande punto which debuts in june.
plz test drive all the cars and then decide

Ritz is a practical car than swift with more storage space and internal space,swift goes for out right performance and style statement.i10 is good city car,with an apeal.I would recomend the diesel ritz for your needs,

I think the rear of ritz looks very odd. I would also think that its boot would be smaller as compared to swift. Vista QJD is another practical option for you.

I'll prefer Ritz over swift in spite of its dismal looks provided it will not rattle.

Ritz scores over Swift in terms of practicality. Headroom is more than swift and the quality of interior is much better, both lead to a feel good factor. But for a muscular style statement it would be swift any day
i10 is jack of all and IMHO Fabia is noisy and low powered compared to where the competition is.

ABS and Airbags aside, how do these cars compare on the safety front?

Fabia sounds like a tractor and is overpriced . If you love driving dont go for it . If you break a mirror or something you will have to pay a hefty repair / replacement amount . Though some people seem to like the Skoda badge I think you should check the number of Fabias selling to make your decession easy . i20 seems to be hot , the looks are fresh and interiors are brilliant but the engine borrowed from i10 is underpowered . Go for the Swift if you want a fun to drive low maintenance car which can also be modded . Ritz is plane ugly from the back so it depends on your taste but maybe you should wait and watch .

As in? If your taste is plain ugly as well then you can go for it?

I for one, find ritz acceptable even from the back and I also don't have a taste for ugly

i10: Is good for City use and not for highway. (not stable after 80kmph)
Ritz: new model if you like the rear end, you can go for it.
Swift: A perfect hatch, there is nothing to comment upon.
Gets-CRDI:if your budget permits.(Gets+petes:a deadly daemon)

Diesel & Petrol: Read somewhere you have Honda city,why not try diesel???
Test drive all the cars,hang on for the best.

Note: opt for ABS if you go for Swift/Ritz diesel (though the waiting period is long, you can’t get for the whole life if you want it later)

I vote for swift:good for both city& highway drive as well.

Getz GLS/X 1.3 with ABS and EBD is available at a very affordable price now, given the Hyundai offer. I think its the best VFM among all that you are considering.

If you feel Resale value could be less, then go for i10. It is not unstable in the highways. I have consistently driven the car at 130Kmph and its very stable!!!

i10 is fresh looking and also a very good city car. And it is good for highways too. No doubts about it.
