New Hyundai i20 vs Maruti Swift Compare Price,Features,Spec
Detailed Comparison in Just Launched New Hyundai i20 vs Maruti Swift - Dimensions, Looks, Features, Specs, Engine
Hyundai has launched the new i20 in India plus for the first time the new i20 gets many engine options along with a long feature list. So with many engine options the new i20 plans to compete with many rivals including the Maruti Swift. The Swift is the best selling hatchback between Rs 5-8 lakh while the new i20 with it starting 1.2 variants falls in the end of that price bracket. So which is better, Swift or i20 1.2l? We find out.
Dimensions and Looks
You can easily see who long and wide the new i20 is and it is a lot longer and wider than the Swift too. The new i20 is bigger now and that makes it look like it belongs to a higher segment. The Swift is smaller and more sporty while the new i20 looks premium. The new Swift is a lot taller though over the i20. In terms of design, both have sporty lines and a youthful aggressive look but i20 surely looks better with the bigger 16inch alloys too. The Swift is more compact.
Interior and Features
Inside again there is a difference when you see both the cars. Both get black interiors though you might get a different colour in the i20 without the dual-tone. The i20 interior feels big and also is spacious with a lot more space this time. The new i20 has a longer wheelbase over the Swift also which means three can sit at the back and you have more headroom and legroom. The i20 gets a unique design theme and the massive 10.25 inch touch screen and digital dials also looks sporty and premium.
The Swift is less spacious than the i20 and more a fit for four. The interior is sportier though and comes with a flat bottomed steering wheel and round cool climate control. In terms of features the new i20 wins as the top-spec has the touch screen plus the digital dials along with wireless charging, air purifier, Bose audio, ambient lighting and even a sunroof plus the connected tech that Hyundai calls Bluelink. Yes it has basic features now like rear ac vents, navigation, rear camera and more.
The Swift misses out on the sunroof or a lot of the features like connected tech but it does get a fairly big touch screen and climate control and all the basic features.
Engine and Fuel Economy
We are talking about the i20 1.2l petrol here and that engine makes 83 bhp for the manual and 86 bhp for the CVT automatic. The Swift also has a 1.2l petrol which makes 82 bhp. While a manual is standard in both the Swift offers an AMT and not a CVT that the i20 offers.
We have not driven the i20 with the 1.2l but we expect the Swift since it is lighter to be quicker with also a 1.2l. Of course the i20 also offers a much more expensive turbo petrol which is not there on the Swift.
On the mileage front the new i20 CVT gives 19.65 kmpl while the manual gives 20.3 kmpl. The Swift gives 21.2 kmpl.
Price and Verdict - Best Hatchback in India?
The new Swift is available only with petrol engine unlike the i20 and prices for the Swift starts at Rs 5 lakh and goes till Rs 8 lakh for the top-end. The i20 1.2l starts at Rs 6.7 lakh and goes till Rs 9.7 lakh for the CVT and Rs 9.2 lakh for the petrol manual. The new i20 no doubt is the much more spacious car plus it has way more features which partially justifies the price along with quality. The Swift is cheaper value for money mid-size hatch with a more efficient and powerful 1.2l engine, however the i20 works out to be a better premium hatchback if you can stretch your budget to around Rs 10 lakhs
