To simplify, Hyundai's 20.25 CM is 7.9 INCHES which is 0.9 inches more than what the Swift is offering. IMHO, this comparison chart shows Hyundai's desperation to dethrone the segment leader.

IMHO, the "facelift" resembles the Tata Kite/Zica/Tiago with a Hyundai badge from the outside from the first looks. Haven't had an opportunity to drive the machine to be able to comment on the performance. Will update this thread soon after a test drive.

Somehow the whole integration of the screen and dashboard is not to my liking. There is no flow in the design especially where the screen ends. Like something has been plonked on to the dash. Maybe looks better in flesh.

I am happy to see how far a small hatch has come in terms of design and features, i10 in particular and the category in general. The interiors look fantastic for the class and should be sufficiently loaded. More power to the buyer.

This slide is already irrelevant for Diesel ! My God, Hyundai is very desperate to dethrone Swift. I see there are very nifty features for a car of Hatchback segment like Impact sensing Auto door unlock, Wireless Charger, USB charger, rear power outlet. Instead of focusing on those, Hyundai is scooping to a new low here by selling Shark Fin antenna and 0.9 inch Bigger screen

Isn't the direct competitor to Swift is i20 and not i10, or am I missing something?


Hyundai is playing to its strength of providing class-leading interiors, on par power and performance and pricing it higher than Maruti. It looks like a good product but with the current Auto industry scenario and after watching the interview of Mr. Bhargava it seems that such pricing will not work in favour anymore. If at all, this pricing might work in favour of Maruti and the competition just the way jazz worked in favour of i20 in early 2009.

On a side note, a small hatch now costs as much as 9 lakhs on road which to give you a perspective was the launch price of Ciaz when it was launched just a few years back. I think the used car business will do well in the near future.

Just had a look at the NIOS,
I was stunned at the quality, fit & finish of the interiors.

I loved the interior color combination and the light shade - an evolution from the previous gen Grand i10.

I have a keen observation, Hyundai seems to be investing more on the interiors (the 3rd space - 1st & 2nd being home & office )

With rising traffic and prolonged seating, Hyundai has hit the sweet spot by offering (way in advance wrt. other competitors) a more comfortable / lively and ergonomically well designed interior.

I plan to change my father's aging Swift (1st gen facelift with 1.3L Petrol engine) & was waiting for the NIOS pricing, I feel the car is well priced especially wrt. closest competitor (Swift).
The current Swift seems wafer thin & light (meaning not safe)

A neighbor complains of the high FE figures claimed by MSIL for the Swift and the actual FE attained being much lower (he's a sedate driver)
Keeping the "Kitna Deti hai" aside, Safety is a higher concern for me & looking at the build quality of NIOS, I'm going ahead & booking this one for my father

Baleno takes it up with i20 - the Original i10 was half a segment below fighting it out with WagonR, but they want to compete with Swift with the Gi10, and have slowly moulded the car likewise.

It is sad to see that car prices are surging up like there's no tomorrow and Hyundai is famous for pricing their cars higher than the actual value and fleecing customers by fancy ads. Three things I have in mind are:

1. As per post #180, there is a mention of variable warranty which says 3 years/1L km, 4 years/50K km and 5 years/40K km. I feel it should be the other way round (3 yrs/40K km, 4yrs/50K km and 5 yrs/1,00,000 km) because some cars do offer 5 years/1,00,000 km warranty and the car's usage increases over a period of time and it definitely does not decrease.

2. Why can't Hyundai provide a basic feature such as a rear wiper(very useful duing monsoon) on the lower trims below Asta as it is a critical feature than the other gimmicky features they provide usually. I guess mass installing a rear wiper wouldn't cost more than 600-900 Rs and a customer will be ready to pay for it if they are willing to pay 7-8 Lakhs on a car.

3. In post #179 and picture no .17 and 19 Suzuki also has an app-based control for their smart play infotainment system on the top trims of Swift and Hyundai blatantly uses a lower variant's picture to show that Hyundai uses iBlue app to control the infotainment. Even in picture no.16, Swift does have a MID and Hyundai is saying that swift does not have a MID. How can Hyundai mislead potential customers without getting their facts straight?

If there is an option of 5 yrs/100000 km, then why would anyone choose 3 yrs/ 40k km or 4 yrs/50k km. So the other way round does not work.

I think the idea behind the variable warranty is to provide 5 year warranty cover to owners with low running. That way such owners get 5 years out of the box warranty without paying anything extra.

Wohh!! The automatics are pricey!! If I was looking for an automatic hatch in the 8-9 lakhs bracket, the Glanza G CVT or Baleno/i20 CVT makes more sense than the Nios Sportz AMT. They are more spacious and the CVT is way more refined and smooth. Have driven the Baleno CVT and Santro AMT and the CVT is in a different league altogether.

I get it now, it's up to the customer to choose the warranty/years pack according to his/her own wish. Rather offer 5years/1L km as standard would be a better option. Anyway, this a good step by Hyundai.

Ride & handling, engine power & torque.. nothing matters while inching ahead in traffic and helplessly watching the countdown in signals.

Hyundai gives feel good interiors and features which is a boon in such existential crisis times, otherwise one has to buy an expensive duster 4wd and drive to the wilderness to cope with the mental harassment on our roads.
