Swift Latest Update

Latest: Maruti Suzuki is likely to discontinue diesel Swift in India in 2020. Details here.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Prices & Variants: The Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback has a starting price of Rs 4.99 and the most expensive variant is priced at Rs 8.76 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available in four variants - L, V, Z and Z+.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Engine: The Swift is offered with a choice of two engines - a 1.3-litre diesel engine that puts out 75PS and 190Nm, and a 1.2-litre petrol motor that generates 83PS and 113Nm. Both engines are available with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed AMT.

The petrol variant of the Swift claims an ARAI-certified mileage of 22kmpl, while the diesel variant has a claimed fuel efficiency of 28.4kmpl. We’ve driven both versions of the Swift with both the manual and AMT options. Read our first drive review to know more about how they perform.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Features: The Swift is a well-equipped hatchback, particularly in terms of safety. It comes with dual front airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and ISOFIX child seat anchors as standard across the range. However, in a recent test conducted by Global NCAP, the Swift scored a dismal 2-star rating in adult as well as child occupant safety.

Maruti Swift Review

In its latest avatar, the Maruti Suzuki Swift may look like an evolution of its predecessor, but the changes are very extensive. Maruti Suzuki has made a car that’s sporty, fun to drive and yet, manages to be practical enough to be usable for a small family. It also comes with an added dose of convenience and an improved tech package.

This is for the first time in the 12 years of the Swift that Maruti Suzuki has introduced its compact sedan sibling, the Dzire, first, which gave us an idea of what to expect from the new Swift. What was unexpected is how Maruti Suzuki has given the Swift its original sporty character that takes this hatchback off the safe path that Maruti could have chosen to follow. The big question, then, is – is the third-generation Swift better than the one that it replaces?

While the Swift has become more practical thanks to better space, features and a bigger boot, it has now also become more fun to drive. Yes, the lower variants do not offer the premium feel that their pricing command, but overall, the Swift 2018, continues to be what it already was - sensible and exciting. Perhaps, some more now.

Maruti Swift Exterior

The Swift and the Dzire have been near identical twins in the past in terms of their frontal appearance, with only minor differences in the grille design.

The new Swift too follows suit. The headlamps, for example, are exactly the same. The bonnet and the front fenders too, are designed in a similar fashion. But, this time around, that’s where the similarities end.

While both the Swift and the Dzire get a hexagonal front grille, the one on the Swift is bigger and doesn’t get any chrome outline. As a result, the Swift looks less bulky and more aggressive. The design of the front bumper of the Swift is also different when compared to the Dzire. While both the cars get round fog lamps, the Swift gets a thinner air dam that runs across the bumper merging with the fog lamp housings on both sides which adds a touch of sportiness.

A concealed rear door handle makes the Swift look like a 3-door hatch from the side. It does give it a clean look but it’s not the most conveniently positioned door handle.

The blacked out A-pillar on the new Swift is quite upright in comparison to the new Dzire, where it is more raked and body-coloured. So both these cars look dissimilar in profile now, as against their previous generations.

The Swift never looked as good from the rear as it looks now. The proportions of the rear windscreen to the metal (on the hatch) to the plastic (bumper) appear just right now with no ungainly mass. The Swift also happens to be the first car under Maruti Suzuki Arena to not get variant badging anywhere. There’s only the DDiS insignia on the front fender of the diesel version.

Volume268 Liters256-liters251-litres

Swift Interior

The Swift gets an all-black cabin with deep grey inserts on the dashboard and the steering wheel. The layout is essentially similar to that of the Dzire, but little differences like the dial-type AC console and round AC vent design, combined with the all-black interior make it distinctive and sportier. While the cabin does look sporty and better put together than before, it’s still very much like other Maruti Suzuki cars in terms of the plastic quality and materials used.

The front seats are very supportive and are cushioned at the right places -- around the back, shoulders and the lumbar. The driver’s seat is adjustable for height but the steering is only adjustable for rake. A telescopic steering would have been a welcome addition, especially since taller drivers can take the liberty to stretch their legs further, thanks to more leg space at the front compared to the outgoing model. The view out from the front seat is excellent with the upright A-pillar not hindering side vision at all. Turning the Swift or parking it front-first will be easy for most drivers.

Lack of knee room at the rear was one of the shortcomings of the previous generation Swift and that has been addressed in the new version. Thanks to the new Heartect platform, there’s more space inside the cabin as the wheelbase has improved by 20mm. It is now possible for two adults, at least 5’8”, to sit one behind the other without compromising on rear knee room. The boot space has also improved by 58 litres although the loading lip is inconveniently high. Thanks to these changes though, the Swift is a better family car than before.

Maruti Swift Performance

The Swift continues to be powered by the same set of engines with the same output. The manual transmission too, is the same. The new addition here is the 5-speed AMT, which is available on the V, Z & Z+ variants of both - the petrol- and diesel-powered Swifts. Both the engines retain their inherent characteristics - the petrol being the smooth and relaxed one that charges up as it goes past 4,000rpm and the diesel being the more torquey and fuel efficient of the two that unleashes as the turbo kicks in post 2,000rpm. The manual Swift continues to be an enjoyable car with a light clutch and short-throw gearbox. But it’s the AMT that’s the talk of the town.

The AMT or the AGS, as Maruti Suzuki likes to call it, is finally the gearbox that can manage most of the driving situations on its own whether it is a hill, slope, flat, rough, choc-a-bloc or an open expressway. The shift responses are now quick and it understands throttle inputs better now. The usual AMT headnod accompanied by gearshifts has also reduced with the only exception being upshifting at high revs and downshifting the diesel engine in its peak torque zone. A point worth mentioning here is that the AMT gear lever in the new Swift is one sophisticated looking unit (in terms of design) with short throws.

Handling and Ride

The new Heartect platform has worked wonders for the new Swift and it now feels more composed than ever while doing triple-digit speeds and taking curves. Although the Swift has shed some weight, it feels more planted than before in both the diesel and petrol avatars. The steering is light and it isn’t the most communicative of units, but it doesn’t feel vague and requires no idle inputs to maintain a straight line. The light steering though will be enjoyable while parking and at city speeds.

What comes as a surprise is that Maruti Suzuki has resorted to a rather firm suspension setup for the third generation Swift. Except when driven over really poor roads, the relatively stiffly sprung Swift feels more confident and very controlled on the road. Over very rough surfaces, you feel the thuds clearly in the cabin. By no means is the ride uncomfortable, but it isn’t as supple as the Baleno either.

Swift Safety

The third-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift gets dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child anchorages as standard. It is additionally equipped with rear parking sensors, a rear camera and front fog lamps. While the standard safety kit is better than it has ever been, the India-spec Maruti Swift has disappointed when it comes to safety. The Swift scored just 2-stars (out of 5) in the Global NCAP crash tests with the test results finding the India spec car's structure to be "unstable". This was not a concern when the Euro-spec Swift was crash tested, raising serious concerns about the structural integrity of the Swift being sold in India. 

Maruti Swift Variants

The Maruti Swift is offered in 4 main variants - L, V, Z and Z+. All the variants are available with both, the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Additionally, the V, Z and Z+ are also available with an optional automated manual gearbox (AMT).


Pros & Cons of Maruti Swift

CarDekho Experts
CarDekho Experts:
The new-gen Swift, then, is a package that is as sensible as it is exciting.

Things We Like

  • Dynamics - A good car for the enthusiast without compromising sensibility (mileage and usability)
  • Improved cabin space in the new Swift, thanks to the new platform
  • AMT option – Convenience of automatic available in three variants with both the engines
  • NVH – Better cabin insulation for a richer drive experience

Things We Don't Like

  • Prices of several variants overlap with that of the more premium and spacious Baleno
  • Ride - Stiff set ride not suitable for bad roads
  • The quality of plastics inside the Swift's cabin feel hard and not premium enough
  • Safety concerns. The India-spec (unlike the Euro/Japanese spec) scored poorly in the Global NCAP crash tests, receiving just 2 stars even with dual front airbags and ABS. The structure was found to be unstable

    Q. Which is best between Honda WRV diesel and Swift diesel?

    • Cardekho_Experts
    • , 3 hours ago

    Both the cars are of different segment and have their own forte. The WR-V borrows quite a lot from the Jazz but manages to stand tall on its own toes. It’s got space, it’s efficient and has the right amount of feel-good features. Then there’s Honda’s reputation for reliability. Also, it’s your only option if you want a cross-hatch with a sunroof. So, there. on the other hand, 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.We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts.Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://bit.ly/28OBnSu
