Maruti Swift VXI
Gaadi Road Test Verdict
It was way back in 2005 when Maruti launched the Swift hatchback in the Indian market. Little did they and the industry know that this very vehicle would go on to create history and re-write the rules of the Indian hatchback industry. Six years later, that is in August 2011, Maruti have once again done what they are known for! The all-new Suzuki Swift that is already on sale in various international markets is now right here in India.
At first glance, you can easily mistake this one for the old version.
However within seconds, the differences start showing up. The new Swift is longer, wider and higher than the previous version with an extended wheelbase too. It is built on an entirely new platform and changes have been made to the way it looks. For example the headlamps are bigger and more swept back into the bonnet. The bumpers are sporty and the alloy wheel pattern in the ZXI/ZDI models is terrific. Changes dont stop here. The interiors are all-new, roomy and loaded with features. The overly black theme though remains!
The all-new Maruti Swift will go on sale in the Indian market on the 17th of August 2011 at a slightly higher price - but it is still well worth every single penny!
|What We Like:||Looks, more space, overall package of VXI and VDI|
|What We Don't Like:||Huge waiting on diesel, expensive top end ZXI and ZDI|

New maruti swift
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 read more
best selling car
I own a swift VDI, it a nice car in terms of mileage and computability. but the only problem with this car is that is not spacious, it lacks headroom as well as legroom. if a healthy person with height approx 6 inches sits on a driving seat, there will be no space left for the rear passenger at the legroom. apart from that, i drove the car on highway it give excellent mileage and has a good pick-up. the quality of the plastic, the dash, and the material used are all good. read more

Best car in this segment
Best interior, value for money. Performance is good. Sporty look makes it more competitive and favorite car in this segment. Surely go for its comfort and performance. Its too swift on road ) This negative review is for all manufactures For more fuel economy all the car manufacturers have used light metal body which gets a dent very easily. This is common to almost all the makes. read more

First lot Swift 2005
First lot Petrol Swifts with original Japanese kits and parts are the best swifts on the road. Lovely engine response especially if you use Mobil fully synthetic Oil , Pipercross filters, one size bigger tyres and Denso Iridium plugs. The car feels smooth and very responsive also the fuel economy even after 8 years is still around 17-18 kmlit in non ac and about 14-15 with ac. Very little maintainance if you service it periodically. read more
