Comparison Review: Hyundai Grand i10 vs. Maruti Suzuki Swift

Many auto-enthusiasts are interested in the commons and differences between a pair of main rivals: Hyundai Grand i10 and Maruti Suzuki Swift. Both of them are very popular in the Indian market. Under such conditions, we will launch a comparison on the basis of Ride Quality, On-Road price, Safety, Exterior, Interior, Dimensions, Colours, Mileage, Specifications & Features, and Ground Clearance. Just for your reference.

 

Ride Quality

  • Hyundai Grand i10

Hyundai Grand i10 has accepted the upgrade of its more powerful engine, higher torque, and tweaked turbo settings, so you will feel the Hyundai Grand i10 is quick and alive when driving, even quicker than the Maruti Suzuki Swift. The ride and handling is as good as its predecessor so the Hyundai Grand i10 feels soft.

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift

As the “Indian 2019 year of car”, the Maruti Suzuki Swift is fun to drive with good handling and suspension. Moreover, with an upgraded cabin, you can enjoy yourself while driving on a long-distance trip. But the diesel version engine is too noisy that drag the ride quality down.

 

On-Road price in New Delhi (some cities prices are lower than this)

  • Hyundai Grand i10 on-road price:

Hyundai Grand i10 starts its price at ₹ 6.5 Lakhs and reaches its peak price at ₹ 7.42 Lakhs, covering only 3 available variants: 2 are petrol version and 1 is CNG version. All the variants are equipped with manual transmission.

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift on-road price:

Swift launches its price range from ₹ 5.73 Lakhs to ₹ 10.25 Lakhs, covering 13 variants. The petrol version lists the price from ₹ 5.73 Lakhs to ₹ 8.99 Lakhs while the diesel version ranges from ₹ 8.13 Lakhs to ₹ 10.25 Lakhs.

Swift owns a bigger price range than the i10, with 10 more available variants than i10 too. It means you will have a lot of room for consideration from Swift.

      

Safety

  • Hyundai Grand i10

Here is an interesting thing; Hyundai Grand i10 has scored a 4-star in the safety test launched by the EURONCAP, but what’s astonishing is, it scored a 0-star in the safety test launched by Latin NCAP. Let’s take a look at the safety features loaded on board.

The whole Hyundai Grand i10 looks quite young and fashionable. It is equipped with a sportier front bumper and LED DRLs. Besides, some additional black claddings are added on the rear bumper, plus large round reflectors. The brand new design makes the Hyundai Grand i10 more styling.

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift:

Interior

  • Hyundai Grand i10 interior:

The fit and finish of Hyundai Grand i10 is as good as ever. The cabin is more spacious and is more comfortable for four people loaded. However, the interior is made of hard plastic, which is a little bit out of date, but the texture makes it feels like an upmarket product.

From the Maruti Suzuki Swift officially claimed statistics; we can learn that the Swift owns a petrol and diesel mileage from 21.21 to 28.4 kmpl.

The Swift owns a slightly better mileage performance than the i10. It could be one of the biggest factors that you would be concerned about when you finally make your decision.

Conclusion:

It is still very hard to judge which one is better after a detailed comparison, i10 or Swift. But considering the budget and the value for money, I would recommend you to go for Maruti Suzuki Swift if you are holding a budget around ₹ 6.5 Lakhs to ₹ 7 Lakhs. If you are holding a budget over ₹ 7 Lakhs, then either the Hyundai Grand i10 or the Maruti Suzuki Swift would be a wise choice.
