    Built & ride quality is better in Figo and it also offers more features.

    Swift will score on maintenance costs and resale value.

    The figo is definitely a better car on paper, but talking about first hand experiences, if you want to go for something new, go for a ritz, or maybe a polo, the figo is undoubtedly a good car, but its let down by the ford service and back up deptt, you have to go through quite a few dealers, to find a good service station, however,
    if you are the kind of guy who disposes the car after two or three years, then go for the figo, but if you are the kind of guy who keeps his cars till the wheels fall off, you are better off going for the swift, because firstly, the service backup is way better, and you can always find spare parts, ford having a monopoly as far as spare parts are concerned is going to be a lil expensive to maintain, put it this way, i have a hyundai santro, and a swift diesel, and the santro is still more expensive to maintain..!

    I am thinking about buying a car. I won't know if I'm buying this used car until I go look at it. How do I drive it home, if I won't have car insurance at the moment that I buy it?

    get a online quote and print the paper and all you need to do is call the insurance and tell them the quote number and get insurance done on the phone.
    you might need a credit card for it
