MARUTI SUZUKI SWIFT

INTRODUCTION

The Swift is Maruti Suzuki’s premium hatchback, which competes with the Hyundai Elite i20 and Volkswagen Polo in terms of engine and performance.
There are several changes made to this vehicle, especially to its features and technical specifications. It is available in several trim levels, among which, Maruti Suzuki Swift VDi is their mid-range diesel trim.
It may be larger than its predecessors but the latest model hasn’t veered from the sporty styling template which is synonymous with the Swift name. The size increase has benefited cabin room and it’s actually quite spacious on the inside. However, the all-black theme and small rear windows can make it feel gloomy. Also, its cabin quality is not really special.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift’s 83hp, 1.2-litre, petrol engine is refined, peppy and quite enjoyable when paired with the 5-speed manual gearbox. The petrol-AMT unit also works well enough in average city conditions. The Maruti Swift diesel that uses the 75hp, 1.3-litre engine isn’t as impressive, though. Sure, it’s very efficient, but the engine is loud and feels outdated. The diesel-AMT is also just not as smooth as it ought to be. Ride and handling are good, though the latest model is not as sharp as the older Swifts.

PRACTICALITY

Swift is a practical car is the one which is most convenient to travel and live with. And there are very few other cars which can beat Swift in this parameter. The Swift always had the right ergonomics. It was designed with a typical Indian usage in mind. And now in its third act, Maruti has also ironed out all the issues of the previous two generations.

So the cabin space has improved by leaps and bounds, especially in the rear legroom. There are many usable stowage spaces for each of the occupants. The bottle holders in the front door pockets can hold a one litre-bottle each besides some added space for the little knicks and knacks as well. The centre console has two cup holders and a cubby hole behind it for a wallet or phone. For the rear passengers, there is another bottle holder between the front seats and two cup-holders in the foldable armrest. But the rear door pocket cannot fit in the same litre-bottle.

CONCLUSION

The best in segment fuel efficiency, more features and trendy front looks make it the undisputed leader with its Value Package as an appeal. The numerous safety and comfort features put the Swift on the top of the page, i.e., before the Elite i20 and the Polo.
The car targets the price sensitive customers who are looking for a luxurious commuting solution. Even the prices of the Swift (both top-end and base models) are placed lower than its competitors.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Maruti Suzuki Swift

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
