The C3 Feel 1.2 NA has more equipment than the Swift VXi, but it doesn’t have as wide a network as Maruti Suzuki.

My budget for a new car is around Rs 7.5 lakh, on the road. I shortlisted Maruti Suzuki Swift VXi and Citroen C3 Feel 1.2 NA. Which one should I choose?

Autocar India says: From a driving perspective, the Citroen C3 is a better option than the Maruti Suzuki Swift for several reasons. Firstly, Citroen’s 1.2 NA engine is more powerful than Swift’s K12 engine, which has a weak mid-range. Where Citroen blows the Swift away is when it comes to comfort. The combination of luxurious seats and gentle spring-loaded long-travel suspension helps the car easily overcome the worst of roads. The Swift also has comfortable seats, but can’t match the C3 in terms of comfort.
However, the C3 suffers from annoying cost cuts and misses out on some basic features that ruin the experience. In addition, Citroen’s service network is nowhere near as extensive as that of Maruti Suzuki.
