I must apologize for not having posted much the past week. I’ve been having too much fun in my new Swift — yes, I traded-in my faithful Santro Xing at the 44,000 kilometer mark. The Swift’s so much fun that I honestly don’t want to do anything else but drive around — even for ridiculously short distances! I did a significant amount of theoretical research; one test-drive made my research redundant.
My decision making process was quite simple. No Hyundai (had enough of being “decarbed”). No Ford (why would you ever want to make this mistake?). No GM (need I say more?). No Mahindra (no taxis please!). No Fiat (seriously confused brand). No Skoda (buy car; no money to drive/service it). No Honda (no money to buy; forget driving/servicing). No diesel (give me one convincing argument). Yes to ABS, airbags, and driver-seat height adjust.
Update: No Tata (didn’t want to stop 100 meters from the showroom, open the bonnet, and scratch my head).
The logical choice: Maruti + my budget => Swift ZXi.
My impressions of the Swift ZXi. Only one. WTF (why; not what) didn’t I buy one sooner?
