Maruti Suzuki Swift test drive

Way back in I as a scrawny youngster, fresh out of joined Maruti Suzuki Limited as their salesman. then all the cars were to me as I had been seeing most of ageing lineup since the I was born. But then the novelty of the hit me when I saw the Maruti Suzuki in the very showroom where I was My first reaction was that it was a BMW but then on second thoughts it me that it is only the design.

The also reeked of a freshness was devoid even in the top of the line But then, as luck would it, I wasn’t assigned to the Swift since there already was a list for that vehicle and was no need to push the sales for it. Cut to the I have the Maruti Suzuki 2011 with me on a test almost 6 years after the one was launched in India. We all knew it was in the offing but then so long predicted.

Nevertheless, Maruti India Limited have kind enough to get us a sneak of the new Maruti Suzuki Swift model before its official in India.

Visually it isn’t of a difference between the two but then one can see the clear lens head with their unique back design. The snout of the car has a bit. By the way, Maruti or Suzuki have elongated the to take care of the less space issue, but then on it later. The grille as well as ‘s however remain the same.

It‘s good that have stuck to the adage “If it broken, then why fix it”. The for the Swift was always its good and the Maruti Suzuki Swift model tries to stick to formula with success.

The A-pillar and the now more bulging arches amplify the style Though the car that I had with me for came shod with 16 alloys, I am being told this may change by May 2011 the car would finally be launched. The likely configuration would be 15 tyres as seen on the current top end of the 2010 Maruti Suzuki .

I would have liked a Beat like hidden door handles on the new Swift but that isn’t so. From the profile, the new Swift somehow me of the Hyundai i20 and the Nissan Micra. I it is the boot shadow which me think of this.

It is slightly as opposed to the flat one on the 2010 Swift. The tail lamps are lens unit stretch the length of the car. The major amongst the Swift owners it didn’t have a rear has now been addressed to in the 2011

The Maruti Suzuki Swift the quality revolution in the Maruti The Maruti Suzuki Swift promises to take it to an all new level. with the steering wheel, it is a bigger unit than the old one and the much desired steering controls as well as cruise

I think I forgot to mention it also has Bluetooth connectivity. The dials have been and the needles now exude the feel of the City. Like the Polo, is a new multi information display in the flanked by two big circles which in are flanked by smaller ones at the for displaying the fuel gauge and parameters. The new Swift also a … pedal. The ORVMs are now adjustable.

The one touch anti-pinch windows are also a new addition. The as a whole has become more with its various cubby Lots of Kizashi influence can be on this new car and it is a big thing considering the Kizashi is available at approximately times the cost of the Swift.

The lever is something which has carried forward from the old Build quality has improved to a extent but not much as I had expected. The still make one of the best around. Moreover, it is likely Maruti would carry the same black theme for the new Swift.

They had previously their fingers with the Glam edition which had an all interiors.

Front seats excellent by any proportion for the older but now they can accommodate even 6 plus individuals. I remember how I was in Maruti 6 years back I was trying to demonstrate to a customer the internal boot release and had to clamber inside the car (without The back seats in the old Swift the points of criticism for Maruti

The wheelbase has been increased by and now the rear seat is a bit more than the older one. my knees still banged the front seats, they so forceful as to hurt the backsides of the passenger. Maruti could do to have some arrangement scoops at the back of the front like in the Alto K10, would liberate more

Head room was also about sufficient and were it not for the gell that I had used for my that day, it would been messed up. The rear now stands better inclined. It has got underseat support and also the foaming materials. Boot issue hasn’t been and if boot space is what as your priority, the go buy an Indica or the Etios Liva.

Boot is just 204 liters.

Ohh, I to tell you the novelty part of it. is mulling over to bring in stop start atleast for the top This is keeping in mind the only other car in this which offers this is the Micra.

The car I drove had this

Handling was always the forte of the old and the new one doesn’t disappoint either. The wheel now gets a new variable as well as low play joints. It is like the older unit but a bit taut now.

But then I turned in the steering, it felt for a moment and then regained its Should be fine with the Swift users but for new customers, it take some time to get to. The longer wheelbase doesn’t around with the handling of the Maruti Suzuki Swift and this means that the car handles like a dream. The 16 tyres that the test car had hamper its handling a bit.

The has been made more now thanks to the use of high tensile in its construction. The suspension is still the old one and it MacPherson struts in the front torsion beam at the rear. The one is now lighter due to a better design and at the time provides for a better stiffness.The torsion beam also have 50% more rigidity.

I am not surr of the final specifications of the Swift which be launched in India but then 16 are a visual treat as well as for better handling.

Ride which was somewhat compromised in the versions has now been addressed. I can go as far as to say that it makes for a nice between ride and handling. you want good ride it wouldn’t disappoint you and when you are in the to been a hooligan, it wouldn’t say no Though I couldn’t test it on the track, due to time limitations, its ride quality to the earlier one me impressed.

NVH was something which is also by a certain degree than the car. This is because of the use of sound deadening materials the hood.

Engines would be over unchanged from the version. This means the of a 1.2 liter K series engine 85 Bhp of power and peak torque of 113 Nm. The engine would be the famed from Fiat which is a 1.3 making 75 Bhp of peak power and 190 Nm of Both the engines are mated to a 5 manual transmission which is one of the units to be found in a small

This time around, the car I got was the diesel version unlike the Swift petrol that I had not long back. Needless to the car was sprightly to drive and with the revving multijet diesel it was a to drive around. Somehow the torque ratings would be for a bit more pizzazz before the car is This is what a Maruti told me. Expect 1 or at the most 2 to be shaved off the current timings of the old

This in lieu of the weight been done around. efficiency would also be than the current one. is the usual discs at front and at the rear with ABS and EBD thrown in.

Unlike the earlier Swifts the ABS was poorly calibrated, this one had tinkering with ABS and this safe braking distances. is handled by the rigid chassis, 2 air 3 point ELR seat belts pretensioners and the side intrusion

Another Swift gremlin the presence of squeaks and rattles has eliminated to some extent. It seem like any plastic fall off soon or over the Everything seems to be pretty screwed up together.

The earlier also had a problem of the boot while going over but not this one. I do hope this sense of quality over the years. As of now, Suzuki India limited are lipped about the launch but the insider pointed out that it be near about May 2011, the first car was launched 6 years

The Maruti Suzuki Swift price in India is expected to from Rs 4.30 lakhs and end at Rs 5.75 lakhs. All these are price point considering earlier price offerings for a new car the Kizashi and the Baleno).
