Hi,
want to purchase 1st car...very much doubtful between Hyundai grand i10 sportz petrol or magna diesel vs swift vxi
since will drive almost 1000km per month with 70% highway drive.
Was looking for good mileage and less maintenance. the diff in price ( on road )i am getting sportx petrol and swift vxi is 20K and magna diesel and swift vxi is 56K.
Kindly suggest to which once should i by...swift is tested but no idea abt grand i10 or say hyundai..
if on road mileage available kindly share the same...will be helpful to do final decision ...have done test drive...and didnt found any difference between 3.

Hello,

For the expected running mentioned and drive most on highways - you are going to get good mileage in Petrol too
For 12,000 Kms, with 70% drive on highway running on Petrol - if driven at controlled speed can give you mileage of 16 Kmpl in Petrol

Yes, the price difference is not huge, But Hope you are aware of some of key points in Diesel
- Grand I10 Diesel comes in smaller 1.1 Lit Diesel Engine, which is slight underpowered in terms of Engine Power & Torque - if compared with Swift
- Diesel historically has higher maintenance costs (Fuel Filter, Engine Oil, Air Filter) and even some spares are priced higher too
- Insurance Premiums comes with virtually negligible OD Discounts after 3 yr in Diesel and has higher premium to it
- Noise of Diesel Engine is relatively much more than the silent K Series of Swift or VTVT Kappa Engine of I10 Petrol

As you have taken Test Drive - Did you observed any difference in outside view from Grand and Swift. Why ? I felt that the outside view of the car seems obstructed bit by high mounted dash (though my height is 5'11). Worse, the seats are not height adjustable in Sportz Variant (Asta however has)

Presuming - you did not had any discomfort, will recommend Grand I10 Sportz over Swift , Especially the features makes it a real value buy
You can read on comparison of details which we posted in one of the previous thread - Swift Vs Grand I10

Hope it answers !!

Hyundai cars too have lower maintenance costs. The spare parts are cheaper and are also available otc
you can get an estimate by following this article:- Hyundai I10 Maintenance

The mileage in Petrol for Grand I10 can expect around 13.5 - 14 kmpl in city drive
For diesel - we expect it to be around 17 - 17.5 kmpl in city

Hello Mr. Hussain,

Read this comparison review - though between Dzire and Xcent, but holds well for Swift too

Hello Sushant,

If its going to be city driven car - will recommend Grand i10 Asta
- Looks much more advanced in Features List - host of modern features. Refer Features:- Swift Zdi & Grand i10 Asta Option
- Slight better fuel efficient too - been a smaller 3 Cylinder diesel engine in Grand i10 as against 4 Cylinder Engine of Swift
- Maintenance cost will be lower - with the fact that Engine Oil recommended for Swift is Synthetic Oil - while Mineral Oil is recommended for I10 Diesel - costs almost 3000 rs. lesser than Synthetic Oil - savings every 10,000 Kms
- Better Rear Seat Comfort - AC Vents, Rear Seat Legroom space is good too.

Swift is ideal
- If you keen for better handling and pickup - Power, Pep is better - Difference can well be observed, as and when you tend to speed up between 60 to 100 Kmpl on highway drive.
- Will be out for drive with 5 passengers on frequent basis - as shoulder room is better
- Sporty Looks - Swift still to our view attracts more in terms of exterior body looks, tall height, sporty aerodynamic design

Hello,

I am really confused over choosing Hyundai i10 1.1 magna crdi or wagon r 2009. I heard that i10 has poor mileage compared to wagonR. I will be driving 50 kms 80% city driving and I am looking for mileage around 12-15 kmpl. I have already have reserves about going with the Hyundai but I need help from experts who already know the pro and cons of owing a i10 vs wagon r. Could you please suggest me which will be more safe and economical in terms of services bills and spare parts along with the mileage it would be helpful if you could elaborate the mileage for i10 and wagonR

Thanks,
Marty
