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.
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.
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 Great Looks,Good Performance,
Although I dont own the new Swift but went for a test drive recently while getting my own 2012 Swift Diesel serviced at the workshop. The new Swift looks same as the old one but with small changes here and there. The interiors are a big step forward with more features and a better feel. I drove the petrol model and although power is slightly down as compared to the old version, I liked the engine a lot. It is very smooth and worked well during my 4km drive. I am told that fuel economy of the petrol model has gone up too. Why Maruti is not offering an auto on the petrol surprises me. Overall, the Swift is a good and peaceful buy - it will keep customers happy though I dont recommend the car for family use as the rear seat is tight on space and the boot is very small too

I had a CNG kit fitted on my new swift 2015 model from Maruti itself The car has been giving continuous problems from the day of delivery Every 15 days its been in out of the service centre Its not even 3 months and the car is not performing whether on CNG or petrol So after paying 720000 on the car I am stuck with it. Every time they give it to me after "fixing" the issue, the same problem starts after few days.I got the car back yesterday saying the issue is fixed, today morning as i drove the car it did not switch to cng for atleast 40 minutes of driving, pick up dropped significantly. As usual the MARUTI technicians picked it up and took it back to the service centre to fix the issue for the 7th time.My problem here is it is goin to happen again , the same way it did all these times and I'm stuck with this 7lakh piece of crap! !
