Hahaha Sir, it is weird that I enjoy sitting in my Swift more. The seat may not be as big as that in the Corolla, but the seating position is pretty good. The windscreen has been pushed up. It does increase the wind noise and the drag, thereby increasing the fuel consumption even more, but the view from there is just totally clear and unobstructed. The rear view mirror isn't in your face all the time and is high up. The dash isn't trying to reach out to you like in the Corolla
Let me just compare the two cars. The windscreen view is better in the Swift- I mean what else matters than clear visibility. The clutch is softer in the Corolla but the gear changing is harder, i.e. it requires a bigger effort. The gear moreover feels like that of big cars, like a Vigo, as if the rod beneath is of much higher length. Swift's seems to be right there. It is similar to the giant rod of a Vigo and a smaller one. The lights in Corolla are better, but the huge size is a nuisance. I can zig-zag in a Swift in rush hour but can't do the same in a Corolla. Cornering in the Corolla requires some courage as the bulky, huge body feels as if trying to turn a huge huge car. The grip maybe good of the Corolla but it is no where as good as that of a Swift. Swift feels light, it is puny, feels awesome to drive. Gives the driver so much confidence as it is small and the grip is so good. Swift is less fuel-efficient and one has to be in the right gear and in the right rev range to get that instant power otherwise it is laggy. Corolla on the other hand is faster at higher speeds but the acceleration isn't that good (1.3) and in the end when you think of it, how many times do we actually cross 80-90 in the city traffic. The steering of the Corolla maybe lighter in slow speeds or when stationary, but at high speeds it is not direct, prompt or precise. The car doesn't go where you want it to go. In Swift however things are quite allot different. The steering maybe a little harder at slow speeds and when stationary but damn is it precise at high speeds. Rotating it a little doesn't hurl the car all over the place like in the Corolla. The brakes are allot better in the Swift. The suspension maybe hard but it gives the feeling of being more connected to the road and being able to take the car wherever one wants.
In the end I would say this: Every time I sit in the Corolla and then sit in the Swift afterwards, I tend to like the Swift even more. For people who are not married and require decent boot space and not a full sedan like trunk, this hatchback is the one to buy. Personally, after owning both, I would choose the Swift over the Corolla any day. Yes, it is not reliable as the Corolla or as Comfortable. But jeez, it even has an immobilizer The steering is amazing, and the the size of the car makes you feel like never driving a sedan again.
Plus, the price, ofcourse.
