    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is better, Swift or Baleno?
    • Both of there hatchbacks are not natural rivals, since Baleno is the bigger hatchback, prices of some variants of these cars overlap. And so, there is bound to be some confusion when shopping for a premium Maruti hatchback. The personalized Swift LDi delivers more value for someone who can’t spend beyond Rs 8.5 lakh. If you see the incremental cost of the Swift ZDi over the Swift VDi, buying the ZDi makes more sense. But there’s the Baleno Zeta as well that costs around Rs 30,000 more than the Swift ZDi and brings more value to the table with additional features like telescopic steering and auto dimming IRVM. Buyers with a Rs 9 lakh spending capacity should, therefore, go for the Baleno Zeta over Swift ZDi. The Baleno Zeta is approximately Rs 55,000 cheaper than the Swift ZDi+, which gets LED headlamps with DRLs and Smartplay infotainment system with rear parking camera that the Baleno Zeta doesn’t get. There are some features that the Baleno Zeta gets and the Swift ZDi+ doesn’t get, like auto dimming IRVM, telescopic steering, UV-cut glass, front armrest and follow-me-home headlamps. The fact is, most of these features can’t be fitted onto the Swift ZDi+ while you can have the Smartplay infotainment system with a parking camera that the Swift ZDi+ gets fitted in the Baleno Zeta.For more companion Please click the below link Maruti Baleno vs Maruti Swift Comparison: - https://www.zigwheels.com/compare-cars/maruti-suzuki-baleno-vs-maruti-suzuki-swift
    • It is different segment altogether. So if you are looking for more space, more features and a premium feel to the same engine then go for Baleno without any doubts. But swift is a daily commuter for crowded city like Mumbai and is dynamic in performance
    • Both are from same well known Brand Maruti Suzuki,but baleno is being sold by Maruti's premium section NEXA and swift is being sold by Maruti dealer,baleno is little bit more premium as compare to swift but swift is always have been first choice of youngsters,and still looks more attrative than baleno.both cars have same engine specifications related to power,but in budget its differs alot,baleno is little bit more costly compare to swift.

    Q. Which variant of Baleno is good to buy?
    • Though value for money is Delta, if you are someone who wants more in your car, you will end up spending more for accessories. Zeta is a better buy as only difference when i got mine was lack of display screen and projector headlamp. Got music system for 22k and prijector headlamp did not matter alot so ended up saving 60k
    • Best version is rs , which is the sports version. Otherwise go with the top variant petrol or diesel. It has different head lamps and tail lamps , very stylish .
    • Delta o& the Alpha are the best variants. Sigma is without essential features and the Zeta is just below the Alpha, without any noticeable difference with Delta.

    Q. Which car is best Baleno or Elite i20?
    • Elite i20 is a good car, very good comfort level, good build quality materials used inside & outside of car but need to compromise with mileage of petrol i20. One thing is sure once you enter inside of car & drive it, you feel premium car like Audi driving experience. Performance wise car takes times to get pick up in 2nd gear, It easily go 60 - 100 km without any extra efforts very smoothly. Need to say if you are looking for premium class with good comfort can go blindly with i20 but mileage wise slightly slow compare to any Maruti vehicles... What else to say further.... As i have Elite i 20 Asta O Petrol 2017 model and driving busy Bangalore city traffic gets around 11 -12 km in city & highway around 16 - 18 km depends on driving pattern. You can easily get around 17 km with smooth driving on highway & 12 km in city with full time Ac. Even i gets same till now. Maintenance come around 5- 7 thousands with service interval 10000 km.Your daily driving of 40 km petrol is best option.
    • The one that has it all! The Elite i20 brings a sense of class and features to this segment like no other. Premium build, loads of kit on offer, looks that turns heads and space for five. If you want to buy the Baleno because everyone else is, go ahead. It truly is a well-rounded package. We’re glad ABS and dual airbags are standard no matter what variant you choose. We’d recommend the slightly naughty RS variant - because we’re fun that way. Baleno and Elite i20 both the cars are of premium hatchback segment and have good features list. If we talk about power performance Baleno and Elite i20 both have similar power figures in petrol version whereas, i20 has more power than Baleno in diesel version. If we talk about fuel efficiency then, Baleno has a upper hand in both petrol and diesel versions.
