    Hello Ravi,

    Lets have a comparison of Hyundai Grand I10 against Maruti Swift Hatch

    Engine In terms of Engine - Swift is more powerful in both Petrol and Diesel
    - 1.2 Lit Swift K Series delivers 87 BHP, 113 NM Torque. Hyundai Grand I10 also comes in 1.2 Lit Engine but has got 82 BHP Power
    - Swift 1.3 Lit Engine delivers 75 BHP Power with peak torque of 190 NM Torque. Hyundai Grand I10 comes in 1.1 Lit Crdi Diesel Engine in 3 Cylinder with 70 BHP Power with lesser torque at 160 NM

    Been in 3 Cylinder Engine, Grand I10 is slight more fuel efficient at 24 Kmpl as against claimed mileage of 22.9 Kmpl of Swift
    However, the Pep, Engine in Swift has an edge over Grand I10

    Body Specifications
    Both cars come with good legroom space - comparable with each other, are tall in body design. However Swift Excels in Slight better length and marginal better shoulder room

    Hyundai Grand I10 excels in :- - 8% bigger boot space and Interior Features

    Interiors & Features
    In terms of Interiors and Exteriors, Both cars comes with good interiors - however its Grand i10 which appeals us more. The Plastic Fit, Finish, Interior Color Tone with Rear Seat Space, Rear Seats Side Window Glass (Swift has much smaller rear seats side window glasses) - especially with 4 passengers appeals more in Grand i10. Even boot space is practical enough at 251 Lit for a hatch as against mediocre boot of 205 Lit in Swift.

    However - if you considering to drive with 5 passengers - Swift has better shoulder room against Grand i10 and is Swift Edge.

    In terms of exterior body looks - Swift to our view seems more modern and stylish against Grand I10. The Aerdynamics, Curved Roof lines, Tall Looks - to our view are an edge in Maruti Swift as against Grand i10.

    In terms of Features - Grand I10 has in all with more variants to offer in to customer - Foldable ORVM, Cooled Glove Box, Push Button Ignition etc in Sportz & Asta variants makes it a stylish pick - Grand has more to offer in its features list and looks better composed with the offerings in its 5 variants - Era, Magna, Sportz, Asta & Asta Option as against Swift in Lxi,Vxi & Zxi trim.

    If we compare Features of Grand I10 Sportz against Swift Vxi/Vdi (in 5 Lakh price in Petrol & 6 Lakh in Diesel)
    - Grand I10 is economical by almost Rs. 10,000 - 15,000
    - Though both Grand I10 Sportz and Swift Vxi/Vdi Comes with Features - Power Steering with Tilt Steering, All 4 Door Power Window, Remote Central Lock, Turn Indicators on ORVM

    Grand I10 Sportz also has additionally:- Push Button Ignition, Double Din Music System, Foldable ORVM, Cooled Glove Box, Roof Rails
    Also, door handles are body colored in Swift Vxi, while in Grand I10 comes with Chrome Finish

    In terms of After Sales Service - both Maruti and Hyundai have well established nationwide Service network with economical spares. Both Manufacturers sell there spare parts over the counter and are well suited to pocket in maintenance

    Grand I10 Edge:- Features, Mileage in Diesel Engine due to smaller 3 Cylinder Engine, Interior Looks, Perfect for 4 passengers with Rear Seat AC vents, Bigger Boot Higher number of Variants with more features options with and Space at a value price

    Maruti Swift Egde:- Engine Pep especially in Diesel Engine you will find lot of difference in pickup in 4 cylinder as against smaller 3 cylinder of Grand i10 making Swift ideal for both high and low speeds, Exterior Sporty Looks Appeal, Better shoulder room for 5 passengers and proven successful and stylish brand.

    In nutshell,

    >> If its Petrol car choice - To our view Grand i10 looks much more value proposition - Good Descent Engine (though slight less powerful against Swift - but is good enough for a hatch), Interior Cabin, Smart Modern Features, Plastic Fit, Finish, Boot Space - all goes in favor

    >> If its Diesel Car Choice - Engine is like heart of car, though Grand has better mileage and can prove out to better fuel efficient diesel car - but if you considering for all purpose car to be driven on both City & Highway usage - Swift is what can offer you the pep, feel and offers better acceleration. However - if its exclusively to be used for city usage for - where speed limits restricted to 60 Kmpl (as difference in pickup is less observed under city traffic bumper to bumper condition) and looking for a car which offers mileage & features in a value price - Grand i10 has its offering for you as your next car.

    So - can decide accordingly for the best buy by considering the priorities or may check complete model wise details in Section on:-New Car.

    Dear, I think the best suited car for women will be Grand i10. Being a recent product by Hyundai, there is no doubt that this car will also include best in class features under reasonable rate.

    But as per the comparison made by the Adimn, I totally consider Maruti Swift hatch as the first in comparison car. The Swift Hatch is having good and big leg room which is mostly considered by women while driving a car. Also the car is equipped with awesome styling which is also a plus point in terms of a women.

    Powerfully engine and good mileage results Maruti Swift as the winner of comparison.
    So in conclusion, my suggestion to you is Maruti Swift.

    Our pick will be :- Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz as overall value package against Swift Vxi
    > Much more features, looks advanced in overall feature set - a key usp in favor of Grand i10
    > Better Interiors - plastic, color tone
    > Good Rear Seat Comfort with Rear Seat AC Vent
    > Bigger Boot Space

    Though - Engine & Mileage are pro plus points in Swift, but w.r.t Grand i10
    > Not much of a difference in driving feel - feels as good as Swift in city drive
    > Mileage - again not much of a difference - negligible difference in Petrol Engine

    Hope that helps !!

    Hello Shobhit,

    While I10 Asta has USP of Features and partially better interior aesthetics with fit and finish
    Its a segment up if you consider Features and Style as criteria along with one of the best aesthetics in the segment (after Polo)
    Detailed Features List of I10 Asta Diesel

    ALso - been a smaller 3 cylinder 1.1 Litre engine - its a bit more fuel efficient than Dzire.

    Dzire Vdi looks a better deal considering
    > Power, Pep & Handling. You can immediate notice difference on high speed driving, pep & pickup of Dzire & I10
    > Space - Headroom & Shoulder room, Boot Space - Dzire looks spacious.... Rear Seat Legroom though is almost similar
    > Better View of Road with Smart Tall Looks, Driving Seat View Position
    > Bigger Boot Space - almost 30% bigger than I10

    Recommended buy b/w Dzire Vdi & Grand i10 Asta is :-
    > Dzire as overall package - been powerful, boot space & shoulder room for 5 passengers
    > I10 Asta, if to be used primarily for city or nuclear family - wherein requirement is more towards features, style is consideration along with Mileage. Even can upgrade to Asta Option - to have safety specs - ABS & Airbags - making it a fully loaded car.

    In terms of Maintenance cost - you can get an indicative cost factor by following below URLs :-
    >> I10 Diesel
    >> Swift Dzire Vdi
