They sport similar pricing, so should you pick the compact hatchback or the micro SUV?

Swift Vs Exter

The 2024 new-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift, which was launched earlier this month, has been given a tweaked design, a significantly upgraded cabin, and a new engine. In this report, we will be comparing the hatchback with the Hyundai Exter, which is priced similarly, but has a different body style. Let’s find out what these two cars provide for similar money.

When it comes to features, both the cars are identically stacked packing their own share of niceties and convenience kit. But a closer look reveals that the Exter packs in a handful of niceties that aren’t offered in the Swift. 

Here is list of features offered on both the cars:

The power figures and transmission options are almost identical on both the cars. However, the Exter gets the larger engine with an extra cylinder, while the Swift packs a three-cylinder engine. The Exter is also available with a factory-fitted CNG kit for those wanting to save money on fuel. 

Verdict 

The Swift and Exter are catered to different requirements, but serve the same purpose more or less. The Exter is taller and packs more features, while the Swift is longer, wider, and slightly less expensive. Both Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai offer top-notch service in India, so maintenance of both these cars shouldn't be too costly.
