My family bought this car for me in 2015. We heard a lot about this car and my some of uncles owned this. They suggested about this car because of very efficient driving, great milege and low maintenance. So after hearing all this, we bought Maruti Swift ZDi. Initial impressions were pretty good. The colour we bought was sleeky silver. Starting was pretty good, mileage was cool enough to me. This 1.3L diesel engine is rated at 74 BHP (@ 4,000 rpm) and 190 Nm of torque (@ 2,000 rpm). There is definite lag under 2,000 rpm, just like in other applications of the same engine, but it's lesser than in the outgoing Swift. The turbo seems to be running a milder state of tune, and power delivery are a lot more progressive. Still, the lag will affect city driveability and cars like the Figo & Micra diesel are in a different league altogether with their zero-lag power plants. While turbo-lag is reduced, the punch of the older Swift past 2,000 rpm is gone. The new Swift has power delivery that's a lot more linear. Boost can be felt at 2,100 rpm, but it's far tamer. I am pretty satisfied great car you can go for it
