About Maruti Swift

The Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of India’s most popular hatchback ever since it was launched in 2005. The new avatar of the Swift was revealed in 2011 and was recently face-lifted in 2014. The all-new Swift was first launched in Japan in January 2017 and has been finally launched at the Auto Expo 2018. The new Swift looks like an evolution of the older car but is actually all new underneath. With the new model, the Swift is going back to its sportier roots and set itself apart from the more commuter-centric competition.

Latest On Maruti Swift

The Maruti Suzuki Swift, one of India’s most popular hatchbacks, was recently crash tested by Global NCAP, where it received a safety rating of just two stars for adult and child safety. While the child safety rating is higher than that of the Brezza, which was crash tested just a few weeks ago, the low adult safety comes as a shock. The car was tested for front offset crash at 64kmph. According to the testing authority, “The two star result for adult occupants is due to high compression to the driver chest, unstable structure and poor protection for the feet explained by pedal displacement on the driver side.” The Swift offered in the European and Japanese markets comes with side and curtain airbags as standard along with Electronic Stability Control. These features are not available on the India-spec car.

Hopefully, Maruti Suzuki will address this issue and commit itself to making safer cars in the future. The hatchback is available with a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel mill, both of which are available with an option of a 5-speed AMT or a 5-speed manual transmission.

Maruti Swift Mileage

The claimed ARAI mileage for the Maruti Swift petrol is 22 kmpl, and for the Maruti Swift diesel is 28 kmpl.

Editor's View of Maruti Swift

  • Upside

    Enthusiasts car, without compromising on space, practicality and efficiency. Automatic transmission (AMT) offered with both petrol and diesel engines for better city driveability. Improved NVH, makes cabin feel more premium and comfortable. Feature laden, including LED headlamps and DRLs, Smartplay infotainment system with Android and Apple phone connectivity.

  • Downside

    Stiff ride, lets in roads imperfections into the cabin as vibrations. No AMT with the top-end Z+ variants. All special features - LED headlights, DRLs, Smartplay infotainment system, automatic climate control - limited to Z+ variants.

  • Our Verdict

    The Maruti Suzuki Swift is back to its sporty roots, with the chassis tuned for handling than outright comfort. And while the car is better than before in terms of interior space and features, the Swift is not the ideal family hatchback.

Maruti Swift Expert Reviews

Maruti Swift Highlights


Maruti Suzuki’s Swift has the distinction of being the 20 millionth car Suzuki has produced in India. Not just that, the third-gen Swift also holds the record for the least time taken to sell 100,000 units! That’s right. It took Maruti Suzuki just 145 days to find one lakh customers for its bestselling hatchback. With the new Swift promising to be more practical than ever, we aren’t the least bit surprised with its popularity.

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.


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.


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.
