Full Review

Exterior Swift is a good looking car overall. The car looks bit Boxy but thats the atvantage it has. Not too much going on fairly neat design on the outside. I would like to expalin how it compares with Hyundai i20 so you can get more information. i20 looks a bit more stylish with all the crome and curves on its exterior. i20 is longer in length by 90mm, wider by 25 mm and  lower in height by 25 mm, this makes Hyundai i20 slightly bigger on the inside and less body roll.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Swift has better dash layout when compared to i20 dash. The plastic on both the cars are good but when compared the Swift has more Hard plastic which reverberates the cabin noise. i20 has a bit soft plastic and has a quieter cabin and is well sound proofed. Swift and i20 has good seats.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Swift has a 1248 cc diesel and i20 has a 1396 cc diesel engine, which means Swift is 148cc lesser than the i20. Swift power is 75PS @ 4000rpm  but i20 power is 90PS @4000rpm. Swift torque is 190Nm @2000rpm and i20 torque is 220Nm @1750rpm. What these above numbers mean is, Swift has less powerful engine than Hyundai i20 or i20 is more powerful. Please compare the specs you will find it yourself.

Ride Quality & Handling When compared to ride quality Hyundai i20 is far better than Suzuki swift. i20 has gas filled front and rear suspension. When it comes to Handling they are very close but swift seems have a little better edge. The i20 has all four wheel disk brakes but swift has only discs on 2 front wheels, obviously i20 had better braking efficiency.

Final Words I love both these cars and i have driven both of them. I would suggest i20 diesel a better car than the swift diesel.
