Maruti’s key point of selling their cars like swift is their spot on pricing and better value for money than other brands that’s why they are so popular in the indian audience .
But people are now confused in swift and Baleno and main reason of this confusion is their pricing , both of them are so similarly priced that people often take wrong decision .
Read on to find out which car is for whom ….
FRESHER LOOKS – SWIFT
The swift grabs the attention on road because of the fact that the baleno is now almost an year old and the eyes have become used to seeing it. Swift is more focussed towards the younger audience is it is funky in looks whereas the baleno is mature looking as compared to the latter
BETTER SPACE – BALENO
Even after the update the swift feels little cramped for 3 well built adults and the boot space is also less 70 litres than the Baleno .
Baleno is adequately sized for family usage whereas swift is focused on driver and front passenger
Fun to drive car? Swift 1.2 Petrol
The Swift Petrol is about 80 kilograms lighter than the baleno , the weight saving makes a big difference in terms of performance. The car accelerates faster than the old swift and the 1.2litre petrol engine loves to rev . What maruti has done is it Add a well balanced chassis, slick gearbox and taut suspension and what you get is a totally involving car – the Swift 1.2
Affordable automatic ? Swift AMT
In 3 generations of the Swift, Maruti has finally offered an automatic option. Instead of going with the more expensive torque converter/CVT automatic as in the case of Baleno here Maruti has opted for a cost-effective and fuel efficient AMT on the new car. The Swift 1.2 Petrol AMT is a lot more cheaper than the Baleno CVT, in terms of pricing. So, if peppy, affordable hatchback that’s very convenient for city driving , then your search stops here .
