Maruti Suzuki Swift ZDi v/s Mahindra Verito Vibe D6

The Swift ZDi is on the expensive side when compared to the Verito Vibe, however it does get a lot more bells and whistles too. The Swift has dual forward airbags, whereas the Verito Vibe has a single one. The Swift gets steering mounted audio controls, while the interior styling is also trendier on the Maruti Suzuki product. The Verito Vibe wins hands down on space for both the front and rear passengers, and even on the comfort factor. The Swift has better fuel efficiency as per ARAI cycle, however both the engines are almost equally frugal. The Swift however is more quicker than the Verito Vibe, when you consider outright performance. Both the vehicles look sporty, however the Swift s more stylish on the inside. Now, all depends on what will you need space or styling? Our pick is the Maruti Suzuki Swift.

Ford Figo Titanium Diesel v/s Mahindra Verito Vibe D6

The Ford Figo is the direct competition to the Verito Vibe, as it is similar when it comes to pricing. However, the Figo wins it hands-down when it comes to features. The Figo gets dual airbags, steering column mounted audio controls, steering adjust and even height adjustment for driver’s seat. Both the hatchback are spacious, however the Verito has an upper hand. The Figo top-of-the-line costs about Rs 6 lakhs (ex-showroom), which makes it cheaper than the Verito Vibe and ofcourse it has more features too. The Vibe wins on the boot space, but the access to the boot is poor. In terms of fuel efficiency, there isn’t much to differentiate. The Ford Figo is definitely the clear winner here.
