Question of the day: Which is a better diesel buy: Swift ZDi or i20 Sportz Option?

Shane Shah has narrowed down his choice down to two specific diesel variants among competing brands: Maruti Suzuki Swift ZDi and Hyundai i20 Sportz Option.

Of course, it is another matter that the waiting periods on the Swift are so high these days (up to 9 months in some places) that potential buyers are having to look at other options.
