Why you want to buy diesel vehicle when your driving is just 400 kms monthly. Just buy swift LXI or VXI Petrol version and enjoy the ride

by driving 400 kms a month just think how long will it take to recover the one lac rupees u will be paying extra to purchase the deisel motor.the price diffrence between petrol and deisel comes to 3 to 3.5 rupees a it will take approx. 28000 kms to cover the cost of diesel motor and considering ur 400 km a month it will take over 5 years.secondly there are less used diesel car buyers and u get less resale value from a diesel car then a petrol one as diesel engine demands more work then the petrol one.i really suggest u to invest in getting the top zxi variant rather then the diesel car check the zxi variant its loaded and the only expense u have to do is film and good quality seat covers. in this variant u dont have to cut the wires or make connections for stereo or remote locking and lots more goodies no after maket shop can install like stearing wheel remote for stereo,adjustable stearing,abs with ebd and airbags go for the swift zxi u will enjoy the goodies

Fiat Grande Punto would be better choice for the better styling, lesser frequency of maintenance etc.However available at higher price compared to Swift.If service network,resale value.,cost is main criteria then Swift would give satisfactory ownership.

I am surprised that with such a low driving , what do u need a car for. A car or taxi is going to be much cheaper than buying a car. Rest is upto u.

Maruthi Swift will be best choice for you, as a good hatchback on indian roads with low maintainence cost and high re-sale value.

Ford is not compaitalble for heavy use of daily 400 km, ford is good for short distance daily usage. depending 400 km as daily use is not suitalbe for ford.

Cars from maruti family is always good for indian buyers. But now a days it is changing. Lot of foreign brands available here and doing well. For built quality, volkswagen , nissan , skoda and toyota doing well. A 400 kms/month traveller don't look for mileage. They have to choose superior cars from nissan, VW etc. We can't predict that what will be the cost of Petrol/ Diesel after 2-3 years. So choose a good car and enjoy the pleasure of driving.

Hi Parminder,

When u compare on the power and performance Punto outbeats Swift with a huge margin.!! After sales service will be a big issuesto Fiat cars.. Punto is the most powerful car in its class giving a stiff competition to i20..If u re willing to spend few extra bugs better go for i20..
