Since my childhood i m big lover of cars but money is always a concern so at last i bought maruti swift. It's a  RWD car with 1250cc diesel engine that churns out more than 63 bhp this power is good enough for the car with 3 people, there is no sigh of underpower engine but with all seat occupied car feels a bit sluggish or underpower . Comfort is not an issue in Maruti cars swift is really comfortable as we all know maruti cars are made in india for indians i mean maintenance cost is really low and after sales service is also good as compared to others. Mileage is good, i have 2012 model which gives more than 20kmpl with ease it's a diesel engine .yes there is noticable difference between petrol n diesel engine. Petrol engine feels much refined. Shortened boot size has negatively affected the boot space which now stands at modest 315 litres. There is a drop of 135 litres over the previous gen dzire. For the matter of comparison cars like Fabia and i20 have equivalent boot space, while sedans like Etios (595 litres) can absorb almost two times the luggage. The only other compact sedan in the market, Indigo CS is capable of handling 360 litres of load. Tata can surely teach Suzuki a thing or two about space management. Suzuki has never been the most intelligent car company when it comes to usable space (passenger or luggage) be it the 4 lakh rupees Astar or the 10 lakh rupees sx4. While the quality has improved for a Maruti , closer inspection reveals that plastic quality is only about decent and aren't as tough and rich as is with some premium hatchbacks like i20 and Fabia. The new textured black plastics on the top of the dashboard feel good. Even the footwell is neatly finished with no quirky left over. The manual air conditioner works with Japanese efficiency and cools the cabin in quick interval. The taut and sporty looking AC vents do a good job in circulating the air flow. The blower is relatively silent most of the time which is a good thing. The AC controls could have done without the beige color though. They get dirty easily on frequent operation. Maruti has consciously worked on the drivability aspect and the power delivery is now bit more linear. The turbo now comes to business at around 17-800 instead of 20-2100 rpm as was incase of the previous dzire. But the engine still feels almost dead below 1400 rpm and it doesn't pull as cleanly as in Ford's TDCi or Logan's DCi. At the end of the day it is the smallest 4 cylinder diesel engine around and it behaves that way. Engine is a different beast once it is in the turbo zone. Keep the revs above 2000 rpm and you will be rewarded with some strong torque delivery. While the drive in the traffic has improved, DDiS is a strong highway performer as it always was. It's in fact easy to keep up with bigger petrol engines if you are in power band. Healthier Power: weight ratio benefits the car and I am sure new dzire will be quicker than the older model in terms of outright acceleration. overall this car is really and truly a nice family car that can bring happiness to its user.
