The Suzuki Swift gets a mid-life refresh, the hatchback was launched in 2011. The Swift has been a popular hatchback ever since the first generation of the car was launched in India in 2004, it changed the segment forever. The design inside-out, interior quality, ride and handling and peppy-and-efficient engines have made the Swift a favourite. The refreshed Swift gets minor styling changes outside, new paint options, minute design changes inside, added equipment and a new variant. The biggest change though is the fact that both the petrol and diesel engines powering the Swift are now more economical than before, by around 10 per cent. The engines have also been re-tuned for better drivability.

The Swift face-lift gets minor styling changes on the outside. The car retains the peeled-back headlamps, heavily raked front windscreen, floating roof, short rear and the sculpted body. At the front changes include a new honeycomb grille along with a new bumper with a larger air-dam. Also added are silver L-shaped insert beside the front fog lamps which give the illusion that the car has LED daytime running lamps. The front door handles on the top-end variants get request sensors for the key-less entry system, the ORVMs covers are integrated with side indicators. The top-end variants get new alloy-wheels while the full-wheel covers for the other variants have been redesigned too. Apart from that the design remains the same as that of the earlier model. The rear is compact, features tail-lamps which mirror the front, a short hatch and a sculpted bumper. .... read more

Maruti Suzuki Swift interior

The Maruti Swift gets a smart interior, all black trim with matte-black inserts add to the sporty design theme of the car. The multi-function steering, centre console integrated multimedia system, instrument cluster etc. add to the smart interior design. The front seats are very comfortable and drivers will find the ergonomics good. Tilt-adjustable steering and height adjustable driver seat mean that getting into a comfortable driving position is not difficult. Rear seat space is the only point where the Swift disappoints. Add the all-black interiors and small rear windows to the mix and you get a claustrophobic situation at the rear. The Swift is for those who love to drive, not for those who want to be driven. It comes loaded with features, and is a good deal for the price.

What we like
Interior design is sporty, ergonomics for front occupants is good. Featured laden.
What we don't like
Black interiors make the rear cabin dreary.

New maruti swift
Posted on 11 Aug 11 at 6:08 pm

Pros best in its segment. Great look and performance

Cons can be more comfortable

New Swift has all the features that you can expect in a hatchback. Style, comfort, look, interior, exterior, every thing holds a modern, young end energetic feeling. If the prices are good then there is nothing that can compete this car in its class. I think this will create another landmark for maruti. Thanks Praveen

Pros Extremely sturdy, great comfort, brilliant at high speeds

Cons Poor pick up due to weight

Hv been using the car for 2 yrs now...and hv loved every bit of it. I recall a backlash on the swift arnd tht time because of its poor fuel efficiency...but I never experienced the same. It gives me a 14.5kmpl on city roads. Extremely sturdy (because of its high weight) at high speeds; but then the weight also reduces the pick-up. I find it very comfortable to drive, comes at just the right price (though i wouldnt say that for the ZXi or the LXi - VXi seems to the best model). Definitely the best in its class.
