Test drove a Ritz today. Except for the ugly back, the car seems quite good in terms of space and performance. The gear knob is well placed and it was fun to drive.

Will be test driving swift and i10 in coming days.

i would reccomend i20 Magna to you for your budget!

in i20 you get space and comfort of a sedan and a FE 1.2 engine, and its a proper hatchback car!

1.2 kappa is not underpowered, its adequate for i20, its overpowered for i10!

i test drove Ritz, A-star, i10 1.2 and i20 Asta.

ritz has a body roll as its a tall boy design, the sitting is too upright, boot space is small. comparitively i20 is a good deal with the whole package of engine, FE, space, comfort and boot space.

i have seen an i20 trying to keep up with our 1.6 accent on the highway during our trip to LDH last month! i was pretty much impressed with i20's performance, so i took the test drive.

The launch of Fiat Grande Punto is just over 2 weeks away. Given the aggressive pricing of the Ritz, Fiat is likely to keep the GP affordabe . It would be a good idea for you to wait till June 17.

Some people on this forum were suggesting to replace stock tyres provided with Swift. Does the showroom people take it back plus/minus the difference between the other model, or do i have to sell it outside ? If so, how much can I expect from the stock tyres ?
