I want to purchase my first car (am looking for only Petrol car) in the budget of 6 to 6.5 Lakhs. I am considering my car to have the safety features like ABS and Airbags. I am confused to decide between Maruti Swift Vxi (O) versus Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz 2017

Bangalore On Road Prices:
Swift Vxi (O) - 7 Lakhs (approx, no discounts)
Grand i10 Sportz - 6.4 Lakhs (after dealer discounts)

The main things that is creating confusion was to decide between the "Safety" vs "Features"
Swift Vxi (o):
- After sales service and better resale value
- Better Handling and Better Fuel Efficiency
- A new Swift version is down the line, not sure if this is right time to buy a Swift that will gives older look in few months.
- Value for Money Proposition compared to Grand i10 offers in features.
- Heard that Breaking in Vxi variants of Swift is not at par with the Grand i10 Sportz.

Grand i10 Sportz 2017:
- Steering Mounted Volume Controls
- Reverse parking sensor
- Cooled glove box
- Rear AC Vents
- Better interiors
- No ABS
- Resale value and A.S.S

Considering the budget I want to go with Grand i10.
But, I am ready to stretch my budget a bit and go with Swift if ABS is really a factor to consider between these two variants. I am not sure, if I can wait till next year for the new Swift. So considering that I will buy a new car this month what will be best choice between Swift and Grand i10.

To get the same feature that Grand i10 provides, I need to spend extra 80K on Swift Vxi. 3 years down the line, will I be able to compensate the extra bucks am spending on Swift comparing the A.S.S and Resale value of the Grand i10.

Please advise, thanks in advance.

Unsure why you not making in Contention - Hyundai Grand i10 Asta as Fully Loaded
The final On road price post discounts and dealer negotiations will touch in what what you will be paying in Swift Vxi Option - 7 Lakh

Although Swift Facelift
> Will come up with lot of changes including Enhanced rear seat legroom, boot space, all new steering, new dash and higher up features
> Even the all new chassis platform will provide superior drive-ability in pep
making it an attractive value proposition

But Considering the price and in present model - Grand i10 Asta looks superior buy over Swift Vxi Option
> Equally Comparable Ride, Handling in City Drive conditions
> More Bright Dual Tone Interiors
> You end up with a model with Fully Loaded Features - making a long lasting ownership factor - Automatic Climate Control with Rear AC Vents, Push Button Ignition with Smart Key, Alloy Wheel, Rear View Camera, 7 Inch Multimedia AVN with Apple Car Play, Android Auto Compatibility and lot more
> With Alloy Wheel, DRL, Chrome Door Handles - Grand i10 feels more Smart
> Even no compromise on ABS in Asta Trim - which otherwise you doing with Grand i10 Sportz - its highly recommended to opt for ABS
> Hyundai has done commendable job in revamping service schedule, details on Grand i10 Service Cost

Hope should help !!

Hi, I am also in a way to decide betwn these two, you can not go wrong with either of these cars.
I will not say about features as these are auxiliaries, apart from few essentials which are present in both.
Grand i10 is city car, and swift is swift.

I want to go with grand10 but then i also want to feel something which ruled the indian roads for last 10 yrs. also heared that swifts steering and front seats are benchmark i will hv test drive soon.

For me A.S.S. is really important.
But built quality at least of body is very good in grand10, Interiors also, good for hyundai.

I am currently driving honda city old for 7 yrs which has hydraulic power steering and superb engine so i guess swift will be more suitable for me.
