Full Review

Exterior The all new swift is a real head turner, with its vibrant new colors and agressive styllng. The features that i like the most is the front part which semi skirted one, integerated with fog lamps.

My personal openion is that the rear part is not as good as the old swift. But after market moddes such as a sporty spoiler and muflers will enhance the look

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) I would say the comfort offered by swift is just amazng for that price tag. It exceeds expecation and found it WAY better that VW,ford rivals in the segment (Personal openion) which i had got for test drive. The tiltable power steering is real classy. It makes driving much easier.

CONS :The A/C cooling is good and not excellent, suzuki cud have increased the cooling efficiency.

The driver seat height is too low and the height adjuster is available only for top end model. I'm 6' tall and still have problems manuvering it, especially while parking AND HEAVY TRAFFIC.  

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Just mind blowing! 1st  and the 4th gear are ma favourites. I feel that there is a lack of power in 2nd and 3rd gears, when i enquired about it at marui svc they said the new vvt engine was designed to be so. But overall, the pick up and high speed is what makes swift swifter ;) It takes me to 0-100 in no time

Gear box is really smooth and gives u a premium feel. 2nd gear and 3 gear is not shelling out the power i expected(still dont knw wether its a problem with ma unit) and is not good for uphill climbs(we have lots of such roads in kerala). 1,4th and top is a drivers paradise and gives u a feel that u r riding a premium car.

Mileage Good. I am getting an average of 16-17 kmpl in city conditions(Semi-urban) with AC on all the time.  The multi information display which gives instantenous mileage helps us to maintain economy driving conditions.

Ride Quality & Handling Say gudbye to corners if u are driving a swift ;).. The rally based suspension along with unique design makes it the most easy to handle cars in india.. and the swift i got live upto its name and expectations and i am extremly happy with it TILL DATE.

Final Words Looks, handling, Autmatic OVRM with indicatars, Multi info displays and intelligent security systems, Cabin noise reduction and engine refinement are the best features i like. The turning radius and electronic power steering is real classy. The interiors is superb, the chrome plating and 2-din music system makes it more luxurious

Areas of improvement A/C cooling is the one that disturbs me the most. I have seen an another review of a user who got his car screwed up after repairing the A/C in an authorised SVC and a bit tensed about that. A/C cooling is not efficient as it has been in an alto and eeco which i had in ma garage earlier.

Other drawbacks are : Rear boot space is less, Absence of integerated Music player(lxi/vxi). Reduced booking/waiting period.
