Which car is a better option between Maruti Baleno 1.3 Delta and Swift Dzire VDI in Chennai?
By: premkumar on 21 january 2016
Talking about the most important factor, the price; both Baleno 1.3 Delta and Swift Dzire VDI cost approximately the same in Chennai with the latter being a few thousand bucks cheaper. Both the cars have a 1.3 litre diesel engine along with a 1248cc capacity that has the ability to churn out maximum power of 75PS and a maximum torque of 190Nm synchronized to a five-speed manual transmission. Dzire VDI is slightly wider than the Baleno but stands taller at a height of 1555mm. There is a slight difference in the wheelbase with Baleno having a wheelbase of 2520mm while the ground clearance of both the cars is 170mm which is quite a decent figure for the Indian roads. Another important factor that must be taken into consideration is the mileage figure. Baleno has an ARAI certified mileage of 27.39 kmpl whereas the fuel efficiency of Dzire is slightly lower at 26.59 kmpl. But this minute a difference is almost negligible if your major purpose is to drive around the city.
Swift Dzire VDI is a tried and tested car which has been having a successful run in the market whereas; Baleno 1.3 Delta is currently a new entrant but is also doing quite well. I have tried to show you different aspects of comparison but both the cars are quite similar. Therefore, the final decision needs to be yours and will depend on your tastes in terms of looks as well as your preferences in terms of whether you would like a tried and tested car or a new car in the market.
