On my way home from work yesterday, I had the opportunity to tail a Maruti Swift DZiRE for close to four kilometers. Having looked at the car from all angles, I have just one thing to say:

Just because you know how to weld things together does not mean that you should weld together everything that you see on your assembly line.

The Swift looks awesome. The Swift DZiRE looks totally lame. It can compete with the Mahindra Logan in an Ugly Duckling contest.

After getting ripped apart for your review on Logan, you have guts to put this post up :-)

@Sarah: I hate the Mahindra Logan to this day. When you claim it’s a car, it should look like a car.

It sure looks like something the Europeans used ages back and have now dumped on us. Have you seen the key hole?;looks antique !! But the people on your blog seem to think otherwise…

Your comparative analysis seems to be wrong side of the curve. Dzire has a lot more contemporary looks than boxy shaped Logan. They just can’t be compared by any standards other than price.

Right – Logan is absolutely no comparison. Pick anything and DZire is way ahead – looks, features, value proposition, service network, price.

As an entry level sedan,I think the best value for money with respect to space,ride quality,mileage,etc is indigo cs.Dzire does’nt have adequate rear legroom for a sedan.Three people sitting in the back is a tight squeeze.

Very good post. Maruti Swift has got decent looks with neat finish and great pick up.Most of the time i find people giving a definite glare at my car.

Very interesting post. Swift DZire is the best car in its segment.
