That the Swift was a path-breaking car there is no denying. That it was being slowly overtaken by more contemporary cars in terms of the value offering and outright space is also true. So while Maruti has retained the original image of the car, they have considerably upped the value offering as well as addressed the concerns about looks and space while giving it much more premium looking interiors. Added to that is the increased efficiency and better ride and NVH, the Swift is now a much better car. However the crucial and deciding factor on this car’s success will be how much extra will the consumer have to pay for the features and that little extra space. Hopefully not much!
