The Maruti Swift is still selling like hot cakes. It's a car that needs no introduction whatsoever! So let's just jump to the points-
Good European looks specially the rear.
Good diesel engine. The Fiat sourced 1300 cc engine does its job well. The turbo lag actually feels rather good!
Nice ride and handling. Superbly tuned suspension
Good fuel economy. I got around 18kmpl on my diesel swift
Fun to drive car. The dynamics are great. The body roll is almost zero which allows you to put the car through the corners. You just wait for an open stretch where you can throttle the diesel engine to the maximum!
Special mention to the steering. It's sharp and perfectly weighted. You get good amount of feedback and you never feel uncomfortable.
Maruti's excellent after-sales service.
Good resale value ensures you live in peace!
Now coming to the cons-
The interiors are now outdated compared to other cars.
The build quality is not good. It can not be compared to the likes of Polo and Punto. If you happen to be in a crash then God help you.
The back seat is not that spacious. The leg room is decent.
The boot space is not that much.
Priced similar to Baleno which is a much bigger car and comes loaded with features. Swift's sibling might just kill it if its not updated.
