The Indian car market is rarely hospitable to a particular model for more than five or six years but there are some exceptions to that fact. Maruti Suzuki Swift, one of the most popular models in history, turned ten years in May, 2005, which tells a lot about its success in the country’s market. According to certain figures, 1.3 million units of this car have been sold till date and experts believe that is a phenomenal number to achieve.

Some of the aforementioned features are available only on the mid and top-end variants.

Engine Transmission

The new Swift continues to be powered by a 1.2-lite K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre Multijet engines, which are tweaked for delivering improved fuel efficiency (up-to 10%).

Whereas, the diesel engine of the car offers a mileage of 25.2kmpl.

Performance and Handling

Engine performance is marginally improved, while overall handling, ride quality and drivability remain same. Unlike the petrol engine, its diesel version isn’t the best for city driving, due to significant turbo lag, but runs smoothly on open roads. NVH levels are acceptable.

Verdict

Maruti Suzuki has done well with the exterior styling and interior of the new Swift. The engines are also tuned for better fuel efficiency, which makes it one of the fuel efficient Maruti Suzuki cars in India. However, the 1.2-litre petrol unit is now slightly less powerful. There’s nothing new about its handling and performance.

Competition

Maruti Suzuki Swift Vs Hyundai Elite i20

The Hyundai i20 and Maruti Swift has been rivals from always, and both of them received updates recently. While the Maruti Suzuki’s hatchback received a mid-life facelift, the i20 entered its new-generation with the Elite i20. The new i20 design looks more striking and sportier than that of the Swift. The interior quality, packaging and comfort of the i20 are far better; however, both the cars are equally practical from inside. The new Swift is one of the most frugal and fun to drive Maruti Suzuki car models. When it comes to ride quality, handling, drivability and pricing, the updated Swift proves to be an affordable deal.
