Full Review

Exterior The look is very good, when compared to Old Swift, which was like a Frog sitting ;), The Red color is quite awesome, when compared to the old Red.

 

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) The height in the rear seat is poor, even for a small bump, my head touches the roof. I am 5'11". The leg room is not sufficient for rear seaters. The bootspace is also very less.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox In highway, my mileage touched 20 kmpl. The car is brand new and hence I think will improve while doing car service. Noice is reduced, but not reduced much.

Final Words No ABS in VDi. This is absolutely unacceptable. Check with Skoda Fabia, which gives ABS and (minumum one) air bag even in the cost of 7L.

Maruti wants to improve the ZDi sale and hence ABS is provided only in ZDi. That means it does not worry about the safety of their customers, rather wants to make money.

Think who will buy ZDi, which costs close to 8L. In this case, I would go for Ford Fiesta middle variant which is 8.5L. Or even I can get Swift Dezire in that cost. So I get ABS, Airbags and Sedan type car.

Poor thinking by Maruti.

Maruti, due to the overwhelming response for Swift/Dezire, they does not care about the customers. This is not at all a good attitude.

Areas of improvement ABS in VDi. Strong outer body.
