Driving myself the Swift way
I own a grey colour Maruti Suzuki Swift VXi. Honestly speaking, this was my first car and I was confused which one to buy. A friend of mine crafted an adage, if you don't understand anything buy a Maruti and if you still don't understand which one to buy, buy a swift. His honest opinion was indeed quite helpful. I haven't regretted even once for my Purchase.
First the performance, the car has been giving me a constant mileage of 18.0 plus in city driving and close to 19.5 on highways. The power is superb as I've driven the vehicle in more than 35 degree slopes with ease at hill stations. The vehicle has been hassle free as a i have twice traveled on a 1000 plus kilometers trip across India. The drivability of the vehicle is awesome. Suspension is very finely tuned, have driven in quite a few bumpy tracks without many difficulties. The maneuverability of the vehicle on highways is super cool and you wont even have a stiff back even if you are seated for 6-8 hours in the vehicle. The engine is another gem of the vehicle. In its class, in my opinion its the least noisy engine with smooth sound as well. The looks of the swift have always been awesome to my likes, mine is metallic grey in colour. The interiors are well designed which give it a very comfortable look at the front as well as rear seat and the car has more leg room as compared to the previous versions that my friend had Service support is the best thing with all the marutis across India and one can blindly by a Maruti Swift if someone is not living in the metros or Tier - I Cities. What else can a person ask for when it comes at such a reasonable price.
There are also a few cons with the swift though; firstly the boot space, for long distance travelers or a family of more than 4, this aint the vehicle for you as it hardly accommodates two persons luggage. Second and most important is the blind spot on the right side is too big... you really have to get used to the vehicle well in advance, this is even more painful when driving in hills. The third and another important aspect is the build quality, it has happened thrice with me that even the small stones that smashed my bumper managed to crack it although the same was covered under zero depreciation insurance but the build quality is sometimes questionable. One more important issue that I personally faced with vehicle was the turning radius (TR), its an issue if driving in hills as the TR is not the best amongst its class.
After a detailed assessment considering the positives that it has, it can be easily said that its a go and get it car. In Short, I would suggest all the first time buyers to make sure that their first car is Maruti Swift.
