BEAT IS ONLY A CITY CAR.SWIFT CAN BE DRIVEN IN CITY, ON HIGHWAY, AND SOMETIMES EVEN ON DIRT TRACK AS A OFF ROADER. IHAVE DONE IT PERSONALLY.AND THE ENGINE OF SWIFT IS IMPORTED FROM ITALY FIAT, WHICH IS HAVING APEPPY PERFORMANCE.
I have seen the etios liva…one hell of a small car…very spacious..24 kmpl claimed milege…plus toyota’s engineering….fell in love with it as soon as I saw it..
It all depends if you intend to use the car for the highways or for the city driving.
If you do around 80% of the total travel in city then beat’s 3 cylinder engine (a derivative of the fiat’s 1.3 MJD) serves the purpose well but if the case is otherwise then swift would be it (of the two) as it has a larger 4 cylinder 1.3 MJD which churns out…[Read more]
Practically t not correct to compare Beat Diesel and Swift. Beat is a great car with all the creature comforts in its league. Also Swift Top model is ZDI which comes with the ABS+2 Airbags+Steering controls+Climate control is priced at around 6.5 LKS ex showroom while the comparative top model of beat LT opt is priced at 5.50LK ex showroom. so…[Read more]
swift rocksssss…….& Swift prove itt with its waiting perod…..over 1,00,000 swift delivery is on waiting period since it is bien newly launched………but it is true that swift is a difrent segment carand the beat is from diffrent segment….and beat stands nowhere in comparison to swift…
go for swift…….good mileage exllent performance car,………..and the second option for you is the fiat punto with its citalian design and also the engine is same asin swift…
waiting period is too long for swift……… so look for other options like polo or i20. if turbo lag is not an issue for u then polo is best option otherwise go for i20 if your budget allow to do so…………
I m not a big Maruti supporter but I must say that Swift have risen above all. The 2011 model of swift has some kickass interiors & more legroom for u whereas beat diesel hasn’t any improvement in interior section. Rest everyone has said below.

I’m sharing it on my FB page!
Thank you guys for the useful tips!
WeLL are these tips are essential but The Fog Lamp Tip Is MOST IMPORTANT.
sorry toyota (etios) is the waste vechile which i ever seen in earth …!
ah both . . . But i ll not go fr korean scrap . . .nd most importantly their service nd spare part. . So no to hyundai.
hyundai service is excellent…
obviously i20 coz of space, looks, features and drve quality it offers.
my advice would be the i20 bcz this is the bttr car in every terms……..n swift is just befoolng indian in terms of new one………
Swift…. engine of swift is worldwide famous and tested so, you can expect less maintenance.
go for i20..
i20 all d way!
my advice is i20.
swift any day its a lovely drivers car excellent handling I 20 naaaa very bad on handling there s no point having so much power and features without the basic thing called handling.
Have personally test driven all diesel hatches…. i20.. best choice
Go for Swift without any doubt…..
i20 has just one thing…….. Attractive Features……..
and also if u see the new swift vdi, it has got upgraded a lot (in compare with older swift) when it comes to features……….
Rest Swift can beat i20 in every damn thing……… also Swift vdi is 50,000 then i20…….
Swift is having an awesome…[Read more]
the i20 as its better built more safety and of course it has a 295 litre boot compared to the 204 litre boot of the swift.
I 20 is an Better option. I M having the Sportz variant of I 20 and its a powerful car as compared to Swift…the Waiting period of swift has increased by 1 month in every model…..I 20 is a better choice in every terms…..surely go for I20..it has bluetooth connctivity which Swift doesn’t have electric ORVM indicators.
swift`s fabulous Fiat 1.3MJT(DDIS) engine is more responsive and linear than Hyundai `s 1.4 CRDI any time…
the option is simple: if you like to drive your car hard, out of the city, then go for swift. if you want comfort and space, go for i20.
new swift is better but lets wait for new i20….
Hyundai I 20.
yo yo tommorrow ill be getting my i20 sportzzzzzz.
delivery m excited.
I20 HAS TURBO LAG INITIAL PICK UP IS SLUGISH TURBO KICKS ONLY AFTER 2000 RPM WHEN ONCE IT IS BROUGHT 2 HALT FRM 100 TO 10 AGAIN BY THE TIME IT CATCHES 100SWIFT WILL CROSS 140 MARK I AM VERY MUCH SURE AND HAVE TRIED THIS BETTER GO FOR SWIFT.
i ll not go for polo everything is awsm ..but they used a 1200cc 3 cylinder engine …..so iff u can w8 go for swift zdi..
only the company name is maruti suzuki … the whole technology of engine COMES from FIAT…..
nothing beats d swift when it comes to performance. Its a drivers delight car. Its frugal &pocket friendly too. So swift rockzz anytime, anyday.
ppls were nt got fooled from maruti . . . Even they were talking about i 20. .lets compare i20 with punto 90hp . . . Bro u asked about swift or polo. . . Evry 1s 1st choice is swift than i20. . Than u cn think about punto nd vista . . Vw ll be prefred if they use a 4 cyl engine instead of 3 cyl. .
Polo Highline the concept which will take MAruti to come up in ages to ages. Superb class German Technology, Great ABS, Absoloutely Smooth Steering, Sports Luks, Great Mileage And Its Acceleator is different from all Indian Cars..Just watch – Polo Highline!!!
Accletaor diffrent means? it is hard to drive or smooth to drive?
Mr.pradeep I guess polo is d undisputed winner btwn both. I own one trust me. low maintenance. high quality n all d above the vw tag. and yeha u cn also go for hyundai i20 d king f its its class…
I say try the i20 too since you are considering a premium hatch……VW is nothing to write home about (barring the build quality which is far superior to marutis’)…it is a good brand and that is it! Dealer network is still small and finding a qualified mechanic in case of a breakdown is difficult…I personally am not a fan of the Swift…but…[Read more]
agreed with shivansh…try it..u will forget polo and swift….it’s a fact….
Helo pradeep I would like to tell you out that the swift zdi is the best option for you. Because of the swift is the best hachbacj than others cars. Swift is the fully loaded car at a cheap cost with amezing features the ground cleareance of this car is higher than other cars because in india there is a need of higher ground clearence to the car.…[Read more]
I think pradeep should buy swift.
Are you sure that polo has low maintenance?And how many kms have you run?im planning to buy one.
Aalok Raj yes dude. your maintenance service comes every 15000km and as its a high quality car u dnt require 2 mantain it so ofter atlest not below 60000km.
Shrikant Verma Thanks.How many kms have you run?
Shrikant Verma Also many are complaining that it has a big turbo lag.True?
I don’t think shelling 8 lakhs (at least in Bangalore) for a Maruti hatch is worth it. As most of the people suggested pls take a look at I20 Asta CRDI. If you are looking for Polo and 3 cylinders are fine, please take a look at Fabia TDI which has the same engine. I was blown away when I took the test drive and their mid and high variants are…[Read more]
Well Mr.pradeep I would like to suggest you.
1) Hyundai I 20.
2) Fiat Punto.
3) Ford Figo.
4) Gm beat.
5) Vw Polo and.
as swift is a very comman car but sumthing different which is not common.also swift has a long waiting period.swift is not at all a spacios car.only the advantages you will get in swift is A.S.S is good, resale value…[Read more]
just wait for i20 with fluidic facelift,,, oh he cant wait,,,, go for i20 or can try micra.
Go for swift only polo engine sounds like mini tractor. I know polo is a good car good engg very soft stearing. But swift is more comfortable than polo polo is very tight in the rear seat spares r too costly of polo .milage is less than swift. So i suggest u swift or ford figo if u like the ford brand figo is more comfortable than swift
yes turbo below 2000rpm is laging.. bt aftr it cross 2000 the torbo kicks in and u shoot up gr8..
SWIFT CAN BE EASILY MANOURVED AT 20 KMPH IN THIRD GEAR BUT POLO JERKS U HAV TO GO FOR 2ND GEAR THE FACT TORQUE CURVE IS FLAT IN SWIFT AGAINST ANY COMPETETORS DIESEL VARIANTS.
definately SWIFT rockzz..nytime.
w8 fr mini cooper do savings . . Collect 18.36 lacs plus . . . Or go for swift . . Polo is 3 cyl. . . Hatch. Vista a big handling nd front visor problen. . Micra is also gud. . .
swift any day….
try out Skoda fabia & Volkswagen Polo too.
yar but both r out of his budget…..
Badal Jain , dude. for a few grands more, i don’t think he would mind going for German Engineering.
Siddhartha Saksena ya i agree wid u…vw is a gr8 brand..but looking for his needs of low maintainance n service costs i think he shld go for swift..wat do u say….
Swift / Ritz Diesel.
Looks like people now a days are looking not only for diesels but “diet diesels”! Well would just like to share my experience about the above mentioned cars.
Swift: Sub standard quality in terms of built as compared to the competition. Not really a pleasure to drive in the local Mumbai bumper to bumper traffic as the turbo only spools after the…[Read more]
plzzzzzzzz don’t go for swift…. the build of dis car is worst….
really belive me….
why don’t u try ford figo or chevy Beat or u can go for micra but please avoid suzuki brand……
Swift is no VFM???? 12,000 swifts out every month dude compared to a paltry 1200 nissan micra’s……
micra…the best in pick up and the lightest handling….
Consider VISTA VX also. Its 5.50 Lacs.
I think u sld try sumthing different ok so skip the idea foe going for Swift as it is a very- comman car, waiting period is also very long.uncomfortable car with small boot space……better go for Nisssna Micra or u hv another option like Fiat Punto, Hyundai I 20, VW Polo, Ford Figo, Gm Beat.theses cars r superb hatchback cars with good mileage,…[Read more]
My friend I think that the Ritz VDI is the best option for you because of the Ritz is very comfortable and value for money than other this two car.
Arun Balakrishnan Just because a car sells like hot cakes doesn’t mean that its a VFM proposition! All of us know very well the kind of built quality that swift offers! And You are certainly mistaken if you say that swift is a VFM! For 6.2L on road vdi you don’t even get a music system set aside stuff like alloys, ABS/EBD and airbags! C’mon! we…[Read more]

always nissan micra
as far as maintenance is concerned polo costs a bit high as compared to swift, bt polo is a brand to drive, d reason being that swift is soo common these days, while polo still makes u feel proud to drive….. bt if u want to compare only micra n swift, den go 4 swift……
BOTH OR JAPS BUT MICRAS TURNING RADIUS IS VERY GOOD WHEN COMPARED TO SWIFT EVEN GOOD PERFOR MANCE BUT WHEN IT COMES TO LOOK SWIFT TOPS AND SOUND OF MICRAS ENGIN IS SLIGHTLY NOISY THAN SWIFT IN SOME 15-20 DECIBELS SO BABY SWIFT ROCKS.
I checked out the car. front looks are good. but it does not feel that elegant to feel and touch. The plastics, doors, seats don’t look premium..but just look cheap.
same here.. the interiors are not just worth it. It looks similar to India vista.. which is not at all unacceptable for the premium price.
That’s Good Intiative by The Ford, Dual Clutch, But Unfortunately this Fiesta Doest Prove it self to Indian Buyer, As The old Fiesta Still Rocks.. and The old Ford Fiesta 1.6 is Really a Drivers Car a Pleasure to Drive it.
its been long tym since I head anytg about ford….didn’t c any single new fiesta on d road…very low sales as its getg old in the market….lack of marketg startgy as usual n poor customer approach…wake up ford…
comeon ford…at >10L this is not going to give you the numbers.
just give us the fiesta hatch…
price it around 6-7L OTR….
that will give us a real hot hatch and you some numbers…
WELL ACCELERATION 0-100 TIMING AND TOP SPEED NOT MENTIONED WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR DRIVING GEEKS LIKE ME.
Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control function on a sedan? Come on Ford, this car will be running 90% in city traffic.. who wants these features?
i think its sumthing new featurs 1sttime we will see in any sedan but not realy bad as there will b many ppl who will drive such sedans on highways they will cruise i think not any unwanted things Ford has provided now if ford is providing den other manufactureres amy also provide seeing the demand.
Its nice to hear that Ford has decided to launch an automatic trans in india.but they sld provide it as an option in Diesel model.As current new fiesta is not doing well in indian market coz if its huge price, bad A.S.S and features r also less compare to Verna.i think in sedas Hyundai Verna, Sx4, Vento, City r sum best sellers except city all…[Read more]

The drive was too short for us to manage any top speed figures (which we anyway don’t normally mention in the interest of road safety), and we couldn’t calculate exact mileage figures. The multi-info display showed about 10.1 L/100 km
but people think after sale market value and swift after sale val;ue is good..
swift is the better than indica vista.
Vista is my Choice…But Swift is people’s Choice…..My verdict…If you don’t want body rattling Then Swift and If you want your Purse jingling….Vista….
dazz jus a myth
new tata carz are much more betta dan b4 naw
ew cn take de xample ff indigo manza_its beatin swift d’zire badly
Swift is Shit……….
My brain suggests Vista, but the heart goes for Maruti Suzuki Swift.
New swift not a good value for money…
tata is cheap because of it’s cheap quality.
hey what happened ??? u r back on fb?
swift is better ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Better value? may be. But swift = fun.
The most practical analysis I’ve ever read on dws.. I always like Tata vehicles..
@Pranay +1 to that.Both are good and the real reason behind this is that Vista will be good for 5 ppl and swift for 2 ppl or 3 thats all.Moreover i liked the Vista’s Biege n black interiors when comparet to that of swift’s where the black dash gets dreary after long journeys
@Vishwas Agreed dude.. To be precise vista is a more practical vehicle as compared to swift. If I’ve to choose one I’ll definitely go for Vista.
vista is good in all terms against swift quality design attractiveness everything
the big T (tata logo) on steering looks really very odd.
I wish people would not just make statements and give some rationale behind their choice… also, I wonder if any one of the people commenting owns either of the two cars above?
both cars are vfm cars, tata and mahindra both indian car manufacturers r creating waves the world, i love how they compete with their rivals.
Mr Jaskaran, I dare you to see the new vista and repeat the comment.
I never used a diesel car personally but know that Vista is good. Especially Quadrajet technology is the huge improvement and space is a definite advantage. Anyways finally its always price which always take predominance in my case.
I own a previous model of vista.I bought it in August..Vista really rocks in looks, performance, space, comfortable.I missed the face lift version by a whisker, But I am not too worried about it Because I got the same in lesser price…
@ Rama: True, a majority of the population goes by price, however, it should not just be which is cheaper, but which is more value for money.
However, I have noticed a trend, at least in the urban population (also owing to considerably more and growing variants/ options) – where a car has moved on from being a luxury to a necessity. So we should…[Read more]

Saw the swift in show room its very plasticity inside than the car
now a days trend changed… tata cars really doing a great job.. in quality too.. truely value fo money…
ur brain says it’cheap and maybe lots of additional feature, and ur heart says it’s look is better than vista and quality better than vista may be expensive but it’s better than vista
tata still have same problem even every carshows always remind u about it’s quality
actually speaking, none of d cars satisfy all yo expectation … even swift’s plastic quality is not up to d mark …. in plastic materials,vw polo’s quality is great. likewise space, comfort, performance,handling….etc compromise will be der in anyone part.. in all the cars.
TATA CARS R ALWAYS COMFORTABLE SPACIOUS N VERY PRACTICAL CARS ..VISTA IS VALUE FOR MONEY WHERE AS SWIFT SUCKSSSS…SAME OLD LUKS….SO BORINGGGG
NO WAY SWIFT IS A BULLS EYE AND TATA VERY BAD EXPERIENCE IRRESPECTIVE OF ALL SEASONS U WILL FIND 5-10 CARS IN DELI ROADS ON ALL SEASONS WHICH SHAL BE IN BREAK DOWN EVEN THOUGH VISTA USES THE SAME ENGINE THE INITIAL, TOP END ALSO ROAD GRIP ROLL DOWN WHEN COMPARED 2 VISTA IS 100%BETTER SWIFT IS FUN 2 DRIVE CAR U CAN IMAGINE URSELF DRIVING A FERRARI…[Read more]

I hav got a new vista……
cool luks and value for money…….
after gettin jaguar and landrover tata has did a great job in its interiors….
Maruti is BULL SHIT when it comes to Diesel. Prefer TATA any day in Diesel. Vice Versa for Petrol.
ofcourse the vista is vfm than swift but wat makes the choice so clear is the product quality in terms of body and painting job.
rather swift also doesn’t have much more good finish but can be preffered over the TATA one.
swift is really spory,,,,,,,
vista is for family.
couldn’t stay away for long !
proud owner of Vista from last one year… no compare with swift.. vista is far better.
I’m loving it… just like McD… hahaha
You don’t need to own a car to comment here. One can experience by driving a Vista or a Swift of his/her friend.
This is a open space, and anyone can mark his/her presence here.
YOU Boredom, just **** off…….
both r good cars… but swift is always swift yaar…
TATA means TRUST, I believe in tata.
Randhawa Saab, is there any problem in Quadrajet engine in terms of performance…….which one is more better……..Quadrajet or TDi.

Rajbinder Singh , i love cars! and decisions related to love cannot be taken by brain! i’ve booked the new swift long back, expecting delivery anytime now!
tata is not cheap but practically priced car, i c people praising maruti like anything only because it is cheap and poor can maitain it, try a european car first than u will know what a car is. tata is much better than maruti. maritu cars are not safe enough.
Vista is far better Than the swift in terms of best equipments and comfort,whereas the swift has only been changed at the outside and the same dreary black interiors sucks big time,whereas Indica Vista is always refreshing when you enter the vehicle and even the rear seats feels better and 3 ppl can seat abreast and comfortable in the highways.
swift is the best than vista
Preeti Holay Tiwade Yaa I amm BAck on FB
U r Wrong GUY …………………
swift it is
To a serious buyer-buy the Vista TDI-is actually 80% as good in terms of drivability as compared to the quadrajet and cheaper to maintain;MUCH cheaper to buy-infact as costly as a petrol version of most cars-YOU start SAVING from day 1;-i own one-LOVE IT!
Tata vehicles suffer due to quality issues. That ‘impression’ carries on for all its vehicles. Until they take that seriously, they will never get valuation that they really deserve. They really need to get their act together. AND thats why Maruti outsells others. Reliability. Add to that looks and maintenance..and you have a winner. In that…[Read more]

Space & comfort are two big things that one should look for while taking a car. The swift has a waiting period of 6-7 months which is another concern.

Where as the Vista comes with a price tag of 5,50,950 for the VX model & is loaded with…[Read more]

Tata Vista is an amazing car….. Awesome features and great brand name….
Vista i always better then Swift. Here we are just living a sheep life if someone says swift is good then everyone starts to folllow. But what is good about swift no one will able to answer. Vista always best when compared with Swift.
The all new Vista backs out on some of the features. First is the interior plastic quality that has always been a concern with Tata buyers, in new Vista as well this error can be easily seen.http://goo.gl/vSgbr The gear shift is not one of the smoothest as Tata claims, it requires more than just a flick of the wrist.
