I am confused whether to choose Tata Tiago Diesel XM or Maruti Suzuki Swift LXi, please advice.

It depends on your need & priority, if your preference is for power, ride quality, low maintenance cost then you should choose Swift VXi as its 1.2 liter engine generates peak power of 83 bhp compare to 69 bhp of Tiago’s 1.05 liter engine. As per user reviews Swift VXi delivers better performance than the Tiago across the rev-range. Tiago feels out of breath on highway, where the Swift VXi really excels. When it comes to dimensions Swift VXi is also little lengthier and wider than Tiago.
But if your preference is for mileage, you should choose Tiago as its claimed mileage is 27.3 kmpl compare to 20.4 kmpl of Swift LXi. After sale service and resale value of Maruti cars is also better, so in my opinion Swift LXi would be a better choice here if your preference is not for mileage.
