Maruti Swift Latest Updates
The Maruti Suzuki Swift is a household name and for good reason. It is the car that single-handedly made hatchbacks cool again and has largely been responsible for Maruti’s growth since 2005. Now in its third generation, the Swift has become more modern and quite a looker too. It now packs in features like a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with auto AC and LED headlamps. It also offers dual front airbags along with ABS as standard and still puts its faith in the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine. Both engines are available with manual and AMT gearboxes. The driving characteristics of the car have been changed compared to the old car. The new Swift emphasises handling over comfort and hence sports a stiffer suspension setup. This does result in a stiffer ride but a better handling car. The Swift is now positioned as an enthusiasts machine thanks to the Baleno taking up the position as a family hatch. It rivals the likes of the Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo. The Swift is priced between Rs 4.99-Rs 8.85 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Maruti Swift Expert Reviews
Maruti Swift Highlights
The Swift carries over its tried-and-tested 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines. There’s no difference in power output either - the petrol makes 84PS and 114Nm whereas the diesel makes 75PS and 190Nm. What is new, however, is the fact that the Swift now gets an automated manual transmission both with the petrol and diesel engines. We loved thrashing the petrol Swift around; the thrummy, peppy engine can ensure quite a lot of giggles. The diesel, although not as much fun as the petrol, feels at home doing daily chores as well as weekend runs. We’ve road tested the diesel manual and automatic versions, and they proved to be a nice balance of frugal and fun. The manual took 12.38 seconds to hit 100kmph, whereas the automatic was over a second and a half slower at 14.06 seconds. In terms of efficiency, the manual returned an amazing 19.74kmpl (city) and 27.38kmpl (highway). The AMT nearly matched the efficiency inside the city at 19.27kmpl, but was less efficient on the highway, delivering 22.21kmpl.
Exterior and Interior
When India’s favourite hatch gets an update, everyone’s looking forward to something great, and yet expecting not much to change. You see, this paradox exists because the styling of the Swift is among the key reasons it’s loved so much. And with the third-generation, Maruti Suzuki hasn’t disappointed. The super short overhangs, blacked out A-pillar and the sloping roof are all trademark Swift elements. It’s become a whole lot more modern in other ways, though. It now packs in full-LED projector headlamps, all-LED tail amps and two-tone alloy wheels. Did we mention the rear door handle has now been moved to the C-pillar?
The cabin of the new Swift is genuinely surprising. If you assumed it’s a Swift, ergo it won’t have space - you’d be terribly mistaken. Two six-footers can sit behind each other quite comfortably. The cabin still isn’t wide enough to seat three people in the rear bench, though. Boot space too is now better at 268 litres. In terms of features, it packs in quite a lot including automatic climate control, a reverse camera, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android auto and Apple CarPlay and a six-speaker audio system. You also get helpful features such as height adjust for the driver’s seat, keyless entry and push button start. As far as safety is concerned, whether you pick the base-spec L variant or the top-spec Z+, you get dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard.
Since safety features are standard across the range, the (O) variants from the earlier generation have been given the boot. A new Z+ variant has been added to the lineup that includes the L, V and Z variants - taking the total to four. In our books, it’s the Z variant that gives you the most bang for buck. If you want the Swift on a tighter budget, we’d recommend buying the L variant and sprucing it up with some accessories.
KUV100: The Mahindra KUV100 is the only other SUV-like hatchback in this segment and the only direct rival to the Ignis. Its funky design, fuel-efficient diesel engine and high equipment levels make it a compelling buy, while things like higher engine noise and excessive body roll make it less desirable.
Hyundai Grand i10: The mid-sized hatchback from Hyundai has been given a refresh to keep up with the Ignis. The Hyundai Grand i10 offers a premium interior feel, efficient but peppy diesel engine, fun to drive characteristics and class-leading interior space without burning a hole in your pocket.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis: It looks quirky, but that’s pretty much the only problem with it. Otherwise it’s a nimble little hatch that can be quite fun to drive too.
Ford Figo: Ford’s fiesty little hatchback does a whole lot right. It’s easy to drive, reasonably efficient and in some ways, fun too. We wish the interiors were slightly roomier and offered better quality. It’s one of those underrated hatchbacks that sadly slip under the buyer’s radar.
The Swift is fun, economical, spacious and has a personality too. If you can’t be bothered researching and want a hatchback that does a bit of everything, head over to the Maruti showroom. Be prepared to wait a while before you actually get one, though.
