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 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.

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.
Inside, the Swift gets the same interiors as before. The interiors still get the all-black theme with shiny-black and matte-silver inserts. The three-spoke steering wheel is good to look at and good to hold, higher variants get steering mounted controls. The new Swift also gets steering-column mounted call controls. Top-end variants also get key-less entry-and-go, which adds a start/stop button along with request sensors on the front door handles. The ORVMs are now electrically foldable too, they were electrically adjustable earlier. The multimedia system now gets Bluetooth connectivity, the design of the interface remains the same. The A/C controls also remain the same as before. Rear seats are now foldable in a 60:40 split, which adds to the practicality of the car.
The Maruti Swift face-lift comes with a choice of either a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated four cylinder petrol engine or a 1.3 litre turbocharged and intercooled four cylinder diesel engine. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual-transmission. The engines are fuel efficient units and offer adequate performance as well.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift was always a popular premium hatchback, these additions make it even more appealing.
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.

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.

Cons negligent manufacturing poorest quality poorest service

Pros driveabilty, looks, engine value for money , mileage
Cons rattling sound, skinny tyres,
Overall its good car. Very good performance in terms of Power and fuel efficiency, I have tested both Petrol and Diesel. Diesel vesion has improved suspension, road handling is superb in Diesel versions. Very good mileage city: 17-18KMPL and highways 20-21KMPL. I request maruti to replace the factory fitted skinny JK tornodos which is good for nothing. Atleast they should provide the Zxi tyres for the Diesel varient. Thanks Baiju Paul, New Delhi
