Q. What about mileage and performance - Zen?
  • In the city it gives around 10kms but on the highway around 14kms. The pick up is terrific and it is very stable on the road. It is well-built with a high gauge of rolled steel and it's engine is very trustworthy. During the 21 years of my use, except two tyre changes and a change of clutch plates, no other changes were required to be made.
  • Rs 500 gives me a mileage of around 110 kms. performance wise still going great.The is still working smooth. Time to time servicing is whats all the car need.
  • It is reasonable at around 16-18 km in a metropolitan city. Long distance drive gives 20& above.

Q. Which one to buy Maruti swift VXi or ZXi?
  • I bought lxi and upgraded the accessories from maruti showroom itself. Features like power windows, audio system , wheel cover were added which is there in vxi and so could able to save around 55,000. For me, it is a good deal. There is no batch behind to signify the type of variant. The only difference is the B pillar is black in vxi gives a floating roof appearance . Indicator is located at rear view mirror in all variants except lxi which is black in color. Other than that, the car looks the same at front and rear. Gizmos like touch screen, parking sensor , , alloy wheels, will be in higher variant which I felt is not so important. Though parking sensors will be helpful. Basic safety features like ABS, seatbelt, is available in all variant. Car is very good, mileage around 19 Km/l in hilly region since I am from Ooty. Super pick up. Driven 4000 km. 2nd free service will be in two days Hope this answer helps you.
  • The differences between the ZXI and the VXI variant are just cosmetic differences .These are just feel good features and they are not worth the extra premium that you pay for. you can buy the VXI variant and make some aftermarket modifications if you really care about it.
  • Vxi is more value for money as it cobers almost all features of zxi, alloy wheels and auto folding mirrors can easily be upgraded in vxi variant at a cheaper cost, go for vxi

    This has been the perfect City car for me. I owned it between 2006 and 2013 and covered 97K kilometers with one major repair - a Denso alternator which costed me INR 3,700 including replacement labour !!! It was a wonderful value for money car which refused to give up.With a powerful 1.0 litre 4 cylinder engine on a compact light weight body, the car had enough power for the city to be driven around like the psychedelic rickshaw-walla. Had power steering, air conditioning and power windows (front) which were more than sufficient for me. The only qualms were missing ABS. I do not remember whether it had driver airbags, but even with than, it could have never been a safe highway machine. Even while selling, the car did not disappoint me (high re-sale value)!Just love that car so much!!

    We only take this car because we need any car we were thinking for buying since many years so we bought it but we don't feel any comfort with it and we feel awkward by travelling it in city

    I purchased the car in1998. During the long 21 years it has served me well but the steering is hard and the mileage is about 9 kms per litre in the city. Except these the car is very good.
