The Maruti Swift has been India’s most popular car, ever since its launch in 2005. The Swift has gone through three generations and the latest model was launched at Auto Expo 2018. The new Maruti Swift can be opted with the brand’s long-running diesel engine which offers a good balance between performance and fuel efficiency. The Swift diesel now comes with an automatic gearbox option too. Resale value of diesel Swift models has also been good over the years.
The second-generation Honda Amaze comes with a lighter chassis and more spacious interiors. Though the overall looks of the Honda Amaze aren’t great, the car has been getting good market response since its launch. The Amaze is the first Honda to get the brand’s i-DTEC diesel engine. The Amaze diesel is also available mated to a CVT. In fact, the Honda Amaze is the first and only diesel-CVT compact-sedan available in India. The 1.5-litre unit is the same as in the bigger Honda City.
