The Maruti Suzuki Swift was introduced 15 years back and since then there has been no looking back. The hatchback has been a very successful model for Maruti and has won many awards over the years. Between the period June and November this year, the company sold 15,700 units of the Swift every month which is the monthly average. This shows how successful the Swift brand and nameplate is in the Indian market. Moreover, the remaining 7 highest selling cars are from the Maruti Suzuki stable during this period.
The 2020 Maruti Swift is available in four different trim levels – LXI, VXI, ZXI and ZXI+. Ex-showroom prices for the car start from Rs 5.19 lakh for the base LXI variant, with the top of the line ZXI+ trim tagged at Rs 8.02 lakh. The latest generation model has been liked by consumers for its sporty exterior and interior styling. The Swift features LED headlamps with distinctive DRLs, black front grille and sporty-looking bumper, alloy wheels, a ‘floating’ C-pillar, and C-shaped rear tail lights .
On the inside, the new Maruti Swift’s cabin feels sporty and driver oriented. However, the quality of plastics is not the best. The grey & black interior can make one feel claustrophobic, especially if you’re tall. If you’re seated at the rear, the low roofline and little windows don’t necessarily make this cabin feel spacious. Features wise, the new Swift gets a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, keyless entry with push-button start, a 6-speaker sound system, plus auto-foldable wing mirrors. On the safety front, the Swift comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, ISOFIX rear-seat anchors, and rear parking sensors.
