It is that time of the year when dealers get all competitive and start offering incredible deals on vehicles in a bid to take advantage of the festival season. One such offer that seems to have caught everyone’s attention is the Maruti Suzuki Swift XDi edition which has been introduced in the state of Rajasthan for Rs 5.44 lakh (on Road Jaipur). It is based on the LDi/ LXi and comprises an accessory pack with a large list of features.
External changes to the Swift XDi edition are full wheel caps, front fog lamps, OVRMs with integrated indicators and central locking with keyless entry. Inside, the dealers have fitted front power windows, door sill guards, rear parking sensors, double din music system, art leather seat covers and tilt adjust for the steering. Most of these features are available on the VXi/ VDi variants of the hatchback. All the accessories work out to about Rs 40, 000 over the price of the standard variant.
In terms of engines, the XDi edition remains the same as the standard car. The petrol is a 1.2-litre unit that produce 87PS and 114Nm of torque while the diesel is the 1.3-litre Multijet that produces 76PS and 190Nm of torque. Both engines have mated to a five-speed manual gearbox which sends power to the front wheels.
The dealers also seem to be offering an Rs 20, 000 exchange bonus or Rs 15, 000 loyalty bonus on the Swift XDi edition. It is likely that sales of the Swift hatchback have slowed down in Rajasthan and this is an effort by the Indo-Japanese automaker at the dealer level to boost sales.
This is the third such limited edition of the Swift hatchback in the last eight month with the previous one being the Swift RS edition.
