I booked a swift when it was launched ...frustrated by the long waiting period , cancelled the booking and purchased an Innova. My vote went for Swift ..and if I were to buy a hatch now , i will still go for Swift.

imho i would rate the ford fiesta duratorq as the car of thr year 2005.i dont think swift shud win is cos the only good thing about is its design..the engine is a decade old esteem engine,uneven panel gaps.whereas ford fiesta has everything goin for it...the look is pleasant,the diesel engine is very f.e.,petrol engine is powerful,fords build quality is exceptional,ride and handling are good.

Swift wins ICOTY award
From Autocar India April issue:
The first Indian Car of the Year Award has just been announced. Almost
all Indian Auto magazine Editors and their second-in-commands
(including Editors/SICs of Autocar India, Business Standard Motoring,
Top Gear, Car India, Overdrive and The Auto Magazine (the jury had a
cumulative experience of around 150 years in driving and evaluating
cars) got together for a couple of days recently to evaluate the
Hyundai Sonata Embera, the Hyundai Tucson, the Skoda Laura, the Ford
Fiesta, the Maruti Swift and the Toyota Innova.
Here's what Autocar India says:
"The ICOTY award is unique in the sense that it's an independent,
non-profit jury, wherein the publications themselves fund and organise
the award. The evaluations involved a 150-km drive over varied
surfaces and points were awarded immediately after the drive. While
specific points were taken into account, what the eds and their men
looked for was the overall driving experience"
And the winner? "Folks, pat the Maruti Swift on the back one more time."
The report goes on to say: "...the Swift popped up at the top on
nearly every jury member's list. What also appealed to the jury was
the fact that the car packed itself with credentials on the
drivability and economy fronts, and it was solidly built too."
The Toyota Innova came a close second.
