Full Review

Exterior The styling is not much to speak about and different that the old swift, but if you look closely their is a lot going on. The Bumper is now different and made of a different material to absorb most of the small impacts. This is some thing similar to a ford figo. The head lights are bigger and the tail lights have a totally new design. Also on close inspection you will find that the grill has also changed. The new swift is now longer and wider as well, only marginally though.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Interiors have been a strong selling point of the old Swift and the new swift will please you even more. The interiors are best in the class and I think only I20 has better interior design. The new dashboard is easy on the eye and gives you all the required info at a glance. The central console is all new and very neatly done. The Zdi also get s the top of the line music system yhat is fitted in  kazashi. Swift is miles ahead of any car when it comes to features and comfort & a little more space could be handy, though some efforst has been put to increase the space.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox The engine is a fab 1250 cc diesel one and better than the ones available in a figo or liva.Fuel economy is right up there and the gear box is silky smooth. The engine has little knocking on steep inclines even with the ac on and you dont have to change gears often.This is better than a figo or a liva.

Ride Quality & Handling Swift is lightyears ahead of a liva or figo when it come to handelling and ride quality is excellent. The liva though is a little ahead in ride quality. The rally suspension comes in handy in the all new swift and you can eat up miles in comfort.Even my wife is very comfortable driving a swift and she speaks highly of it. Kudos to maruti.

Final Words A geart car over all and if you want a car which is fun to drive and comfortable at the same time, look no further the new swift zdi is here. Great milage, truckloads of features and good value for money means that it will take some efforst by other car makers to produce a swift killer.

Areas of improvement Rear space could have been more given that the width of the car is 1695mm which is the same as a liva or vista.

I dont support ur point on handling part. I have driven both the cars and high and low speeds. Ford figo with Ford DNA hydraulic has a defenite edge over new swift in the handling part. I felt very nervous to drive new swift vdi at 130kmph in the same track whereas in Ford figo i got the same feel only around 155kmph... So its pretty obvious Figo wins in hadling
