Did you get any chance to drive on bad roads? If so can you give me some more info on ride quality?
Congrats once again
Thank you, Terrafield.
I have driven my friend's swift many a times. So some of things regarding ride quality, I can share with you after comparision is that.
1.Smoothness : There is no doubt that Honda's engine is the smoothest when compared to maruthi's. But Maruthi Swift's is not bad either. But if u ask me to rate, then I will certainly give 10/10 to Jazz. So smooth that you wont hear a thing inside the cabin. I'm sure that you wont get that kind of feeling in Swift.
2.Low end torque : Well, the low end torque is pretty low in Jazz. You will have to rev the engine to cross 2k rpm to get feel the power. Once you cross that, the game starts !!
Whereas in Swift, I havent seen this problem.
3. Bad Road drive : Reviews says that Jazz have stiffer suspension to negotiate the ground clearance (Normal cars 170mm;Jazz 160 mm. ie, just 1 cm difference). But I dont feel any kind of uneasiness while driving on bumpy roads. Moreover, Jazz has bigger tyres than Swift I guess( not sure. needs to be confrimed. On bigger tyres, the ride is pretty comfortable on roads with uneven surfaces.
4.Interior Space: I went for a ride with my friends, with 3 person in the rear seats. Seating in pretty comforable in the back seat with 3 persons at he back. Whereas in Swift, 3 person in the back seat is really suffocating. No space space at all. The Swift really looks big from outside. But once you get in, you will realize the fact that it is very small.
As my sister says, "Jazz is not a car. Its like a big Air conditioned room.."
It's your decision to go for Jazz or Swift. TD a Jazz and I'm sure that you will like it. Its irresistible.
