i10 and Tiago XZ+ both are good, don't go for Swift.
i10 engine is peppier than Tiago but Tiago is overall better than i10 so you can opt Tiago XZ+

Greetings !!

Sure, see there are considerable differences in each of the models
Referring below

Tata Tiago XZ Plus
> If cant compromise on Build Quality
> If cant compromise on Driving Dynamics on Bad roads / semi urban
> Seek all Possible Modern age Features in Budget Price - Auto climate control, Touchscreen, Camera, 15" Stylish Alloys, Live Navigation with Android Auto and apple car play with superior sound quality from 4 speaker, 2 tweeter
> If seek a car with good handling on higher speed

then is Tiago XZ Plus a better choice, but downside is
> Engine is relative noisier as against Swift & Nios
> Slight slow in pickup response against competition models
> Idling Vibration is still there in Tata Revotron Engine
> Fuel Efficiency can end up been relative lower
> Rear seat legroom space is relative compact from Family car perspective
> After Sales Service - Tata still needs a lot to catch up to Maruti, Hyundai service experience

Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Sport Plus
> Feels more premium in Interior Aesthetics over other cars
> Super Silent Engine and care for a car for majority of city usage with well tuned suspension for absorbing in bad roads in Tier1 & Tier2 city
> Care for a car for relaxed drive yet with very light steering, light clutch for comfort
> Ideal for family of 4 adults and 1 kid basis rear legroom space and bigger window lines which gives feel of space
> Rich Features too - Auto climate control with rear AC Vent, 8 Inch Touchscreen with Android Auto and apple car play where touchscreen is more responsive against touchscreen unit in Tiago, Rear View camera, Defogger, Digital speed o meter
> Better Rear Seat Legroom, Marginal better boot space
> Very reliable and service maintenance costs are much in control too
> Now braking is improved in All New 3rd Gen Nios as against 2nd Gen car

> Nios Engine although feels more lively than Tiago but against Swift in comparison feels slight under-power too. Its for relaxed drive
> Steering feels more than light and high speed dynamics can not be called in best
> Safety aspect of Nios - well Tiago remains a better car in safety aspect
> Fixed headrest in Nios with thin seats - not the best for lumbar and head support

Maruti Swift - Possibly Vxi variant
> Relative one among best possible Engine performance, feels more peppier against competiton cars
> Flat bottom steering experience is reasonable good, better than Nios on higher speed - but still Tiago steering feedback remains even better
> Although legroom is quiet similar as seen in Nios but Swift has Slight better shoulder room space as agaisnt Nios
> Better Fuel efficiency remains strength and Swift mileage can bring in lower running cost too
> Highly reliable, low maintenance and yes if care for a car for shoter term period of say 5 year or so then Swift has one among best resale too
> A Car made for good roads with suspension dynamics tuned for good city roads

In terms of downside
> 2 Star Safety rating
> Although rear legroom and shoulder room is spacious but somehow to smaller rear window line - a feel of claustrophobic compact cabin is felt at rear. Its more a feeling rather than reality
> Black theme Interiors where opinion may vary and one may say towards sporty layput but feel again claustrophobic in night drive (Nios interior theme is more towards family car)
> Lacks features list as otherwise there in Nios Sportz and Tiago XZ Plus

Inference from Positives and Negatives
> If you seek a car primarily for city usage, with very light steering, light clutch, premium interiors, impressive features for family of 4 adults and 1 kid with high on reliability then Grand i10 Nios Sportz is an excellent choice

> If you seek fun to drive car with impressive pickup, good space, shoulder room, reliability, lowest Ownership cost as combination of good mileage and low service cost including relatibe better steering feedback - Swift but have to control in speed as build quality is very average

> If seek a car with impessive features as compact car and care most for build quality, high speed steering feedback, suspension for drive on Tier2, Tier3 cities, raised ground clearance than competition models - then is Tiago XZ Plus but has to compromise a bit from Engine performance perspective

Hope should help in making a pick !!

Tata tiago could be best but legroom space is main concern when compared to grand i10 nios. Still in confusion which car to buy - tiago or i10 or swift. Plz give more clarity.
