i would recommend you swift diesel :) i have one and i think it's great the pick up of this car is mind blowing and you will feel like your flying and not driving the ride is so smooth. suspensions are also good. you won't feel much problems on the road because of wide tire's. i think between I10 and swift, i would go for swift not only because i have it but also because it is definitely a good choice, it's resale value is really good and you can get the spare parts very easily. i am not so sure about the hyundai I10 which is cheaper than the swift but is not as good as the swift and i mean the swift diesel. that's a great buy. go for it.

hey if you have enough budjet go for Swift ZXI with ABS. I think its around Six lakh. I10 is also a good car, but i will not prefer. i have driven an i10 which is 1.1 petrol and its sucks. it does really please comfort inside the car. with great leather interiors and spacy but lacks punch when i am pressing trottle. mileage is also an headache. only 12km/litre in city. but swift gives 12-16km/litre. 1.2 litre kappa engine for i10 is also good but we have tune the valve each and every time after a long drive. i didnt drive a kappa i10, mileage is same as old i10. but for swift as another advantage, it got a fiat powered diesel engine which Has good power and good mileage upto 20Km/litre. Ldi and Vdi version swift diesel. Go for Vdi Diesel. Zxi Swift has an ABS option and also have steering buttons for playing music, seeking etc. only disadvantage of swift is its cramped interiors. If you are racing freak wants some real power go for Fiat Punto or palio Multijet or Tata Indica Vista Multijet.

Hi friend, Hyundai i10 is definitely a good car but if Swift comes under your budget then i would recommend you to go for the Swift. I prefer swift coz its wheel size is more than that of i10. Plus its over all dimensions are more than the i10 means more leg and head room and 3 peoples can be accomodated very easily in the back. Also performance-wise Swift is better than i10 and same is the case with mileage. Also if you like to have modifications in your car in future then Swift is best for you coz there is a great scope for modification. You can have chrome coated wider alloy wheel or have an extra wide low profile. All suits on Swift. But you have to find correct wheels for i10. And as a third option you could consider i20 also if it lies in your budget.
