Default Which car is better? Suzuki Swift or Honda Jazz?


I am buying my first car now. I have narrowed it down to the Suzuki Swift 1.4GL and the Honda Jazz 1.3 Trend i-vTec. These 2 is the best to fit my budget of R 150 000, the swift is R 152 900 and the Jazz is R 147 995. But the choice between the 2 is difficult. I test drove both today and the Suzuki is solid on the road and drives nice, has nice power and the Jazz as well. The Swift has 70KW and the Jazz 73KW.

My question is what will be better to buy? Considering resale value, quality, is the Jazz a chick's car?

What would you choose and why?

Please answer all questions

Thanks in advance.

They are practically equal. Both belong to the world's top-10 most reliable brands, which means that either way you can achieve respectable R/km ratios. The rest is personal preference, trim etc.

Jazz may SEEM a girlie car to the uninformed, I wouldn't use that as a criterion.

Honda has some more room and a smart internal space organization (storage under the rear seat etc.), the Swift is a bit sportier.

But remember you buy a car for yourself, not for other people.

In my book, practicality is worth twice the sportiness (hard ride, more fuel and tires needed, less cab room).
