mr storm please explain yr "So MUCH SAFER" thoughts with some valid proof.
Even if you compare it with 1.3 vvti vitz then the comparo is as follows.
Vitz 1.3vvti = 1293 cc(aka indus corolla engine) while 1.3 swift = M13a (1321cc much much torquier than 1.3 vitz)
vitz = air bags while swift = no airbags (the only short fall)
vitz = no rim no decent tyres while swift = dunlop with 15'' alloys.
vitz = no EBD while swift has EBD
vitz = no noise canceling of engine and road nose while swift = special padding for both.
vitz = no warranty with 1 or 2 piece touch up. while swift is brand new and has warranty too.
for vitz cosmetic parts (go to shershah) while for swift simply go to local suzuki dealer and have one.
the list just goes on and on, while this is a comparo between 1.3 vs 1.3 and since there are more than 99% vitz are of 1.0l category so the vitz has no chance to compare itself with more aggressive and good looking swift (as simple as that). go to top gear website and see for yourself that what they have to say about both cars.
