To help you, lets mention the pro points of both models

Maruti Swift Zxi Edge
- Though both cars comes in 1.2 Litre Engine - but Swift has marginal edge - been more powerful and even slight lighter in weight. It gives Swift a slight edge in acceleration over I20 and adds on a pep feel for better pick up (Swift 1.2 Lit, 87 PS, 114 NM Torque, 970 Kg : I20 1.2 Lit, 84 PS, 114 NM Torque, 1000 Kg approx)

- Suspension, Drive & Handling Factor in Swift - to our view is just the best in class. You will love the sporty nature of car at both low and high RPMs giving engine an excellent feel for drive factor as against I20 which has much softer suspension.

- Swift Zxi comes with ABS, EBD and Dual Front Airbags - while I20 Sportz do have ABS, EBD & Airbag - but has driver side Airbag - so Swift looks more Safer - atleast from an additional Airbag per se

- Mileage - though both manufacturers seems claiming good Mileage - but - on real practical usage - Swift to our view can turn out slight more fuel efficient

Hyundai I20 Sportz Edge
- Much better rear seat legroom, comfort. it looks spacious and roomy cabin for 3 passengers for better thigh support, legroom and even shoulder room too. Side window glasses on rear seat are relatively smaller in Swift - which gives a dubious feel of its compact looks as against I20

- Bigger Boot - a Good 294 Lit boot space looks spacious as against Swift 205 Lit,

- Interiors Feel - Swift Interiors are not bad at all, they are of descent quality. But - if you relatively compare with Hyundai I20 - Hyundai I20 looks a segment up with its premium feel and jazz interiors.

- More Features - Though both cars are well loaded (ABS, EBD, Airbags, Alloys, Power Steering, Power Window, Remote Lock, CD Player etc) but Hyundai I20 has more features :- Automatic Climate Control, ECM with Rear View Camera, Daytime LED Headlights, has both Tilt & Telescopic Steering (Swift has Tilt adjustable), Bluetooth Connectivity, Rain Sensing Wipers, Foldable ORVM with Turn Indicators, Chrome Finish on Door Handles - it all makes I20 a premium feel with a modern age car through its enhanced features list

In Terms of After Sales Maintenance - both makers are almost at par - not much of a difference between both cars - The Periodic Maintenance Costs in terms of Engine Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Spares and Service costs along with Service Interval - is not much different of both car makers

To sum up
Swift - Pickup, Drive & Handling, Mileage, Additional Safety Spec
I20 has - Better Cabin Space, Big Boot, More Features, Premium Interiors, Stylish Looks with DRLs & Chrome Finish

so - may choose basis the priorities of interest over the other one !!
