Maruti Swift ZXI
First thing that impresses about the car is the cabin. The snug fit seats, the black interiors, the awesome console, the chrome accent. It is just fantastic. The console looks fabulous at night.
One of the features I desperately wanted in the car is the driver seat height adjust. It just provides wonderful visibility and driving comfort. I cannot comment about the back seat comfort as I am yet to travel in back seat.
The ACC is a boon. I hate fiddling with the A/C for manually regulating the chillness. It does its job very well in Bangalore climate. Yet to test in harsh weather conditions though. The ACC also looks fabulous at night.
The gear box is very nice. Love the sleek way in which the shift slots in.
The ride quality is very good. The car is a pleasure to drive whether it is in city or on highways. As it is in the run-in period I am yet to push the car to higher rpms. The car keeps asking for more. The car feels very stable and solid at high speeds (well 85 is the top I have done so far) and the steering feedback is just awesome.
I find the engine to be very refined and suspension to be the segment best. The car takes on good and bad roads with equal poise - Hats off to the engineers at Maruti.
The ground clearance is very good (even for tackling the infamous speed breakers of Bangalore).
There is absolutely no noise in cabin.
Kitna deta hai!! Very high fuel efficiency. The car is currently giving 14-15 in city and 18 on highway. We use only Shell petrol in all our vehicles.
Electrically Adjustable OVRMS ? I use it extensively for reverse parking. The quality of plastics for the controls is questionable, though. Remains to be seen how long these controls will last. The OVRMs themselves are quite big and gives good coverage of the scene behind.
There is no auto fold function as in i20.
The car has stunning side and front profiles. I love the side profile the most. The stock alloy pattern enhances the look of the car. I am not a big fan of the rear profile though.
