Default New Car Buyer - 5L category

I am a car enthusiast just like most of you. At the moment though I am lookint to purchase a new car with a budget of 5L. Hence, I am on look-out for reviews/ info on Swift, Getz and Ikon Flair. I am keen on Swift as it comes from Maruti/ Suzuki. I presently own M-800 MPFI version with 5 gears, which has given me 5 years of excellent zero maintenance performance.

hey welcome to teambhp...

i suggest you search the forum in 'what car' section about the cars you mentioned.
And mods we have to do something about the limitations placed on new members.

Swift and Getz are the hatch sector vehicles even though they match in price with the Flair. Positive for the flair is the Boot which always is a handy thing to have.

Swift will be rolling out in the next month as the production has already stared, has excellent looks, sturdy suspension, good economy and unlike Maruti should be a safe vehicle.
