    Thumbs down Maruti Swift Vs Tata Indica Vista -Performance & Refinement


    The Swift's is powered by Fiat's 1.3-litre Multi-jet engine which produces 74bhp and 19.3kgm of pulling power (torque). Refinement levels are very good with only small amounts of vibration filtering into the cabin. Although this engine is tractable, there is some amount of turbo lag which means throttle response below 2000rpm isn't as good as you'd like. Once past this mark, there is a distinct step up in performance and you really begin to enjoy it with the engine pulling eagerly all the way till the redline. Zero to 100 comes up in a fast 13.87 seconds and it goes on to hit a top speed of 160kph. The five-speed gearbox has short throws but takes a bit of effort to slot in.

    The Indica Vista is powered by the same engine but bears the Quadrajet moniker. The Vista's cabin is better damped from noise and vibration but the big surprise is the pulling power despite the fact that the Vista is around 6Skg heavier than the Swift.

    This makes the Vista more driveable in bumper-to-bumper traffic. There is a nice surge of power when you step on the gas and you always seem to have a surplus of it. In terms of outright performance, the Vista lags behind the Swift and can't keep up with it on the highway. Also, the Swift with its taller gearing is a more relaxed cruiser and effortlessly eats up kilometres.

    The Indica too is a great highway car but the engine works a bit harder to keep up. Unlike the previous Indica whose gearbox was unpleasant to use, the Vista's gearshift is nice and positive but requires more effort than the Swift's, which is still the better of the two.
