Maruti Swift VDi
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|
Other Maruti Swift Versions
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

My Swift VDi - best in class
My maruti swift VDi is my first car (to own) which I bought in jan 2013 first week, run close to 13000 kms now. I started to think of buying a car 4 years back that is somewhere in mid 2009, that time I was attracted to A-star which is cute compactt, then test drove ritz petrol version. I tried hyundai I 10 and I 20 but pricing I felt high for the class. Was not sure about ford and other brands. Did not get proper guidance from home front as well. So had dropped the plan of buying any car. But i got a call from my bank that I hve pre approved loan on 4 wheelers.. so I just enquired just coz the bank person was happy to answer my questions with all the figures and numbers about loan process. Then I was little convinced about interest rate and made up my mind to go for swift vdi. Talking about my car gives me good feeling as I really enjoy driving wether it is city traffic or on highways.. it gives me a feel of sports car. Good mileage of 17kms per litre with ac on inside city. I hvw got 2 services done and felt maruti people are very professional, listen to ur complaints and attend as per our expectations. Road grip of swift is very good and good performance overall except for slightly slower initially pick up. Overall its a very good car to own andmaruti as we all know is most trusted reliable brand and I can tell its the topbrand as far as india is concerned. So if anyone needs to decide between ddifferent brands I would suggest and in hatchbacks swift rules the road.. thanks for giving me the space to pen my opinion about my car which I love to praise.. read more
