Exterior Exterior Not as good as existing model . Swift was basically famous for its back side shape. As back side has been fully changed therfore its sales may be.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Dash looks good. A new cupholder on passenger side front,good looking ACvents, button for boot opener on driver side. Looks more.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Engine remains the same with slightly tuned for better performance, And fuel efficiency.

Ride Quality & Handling Same as old model. The difference is the new suspension set up which facilitates the sporty nature.

Final Words The increase in dimension have added more leg n knee room compared to old model.but yet its no match for figo in leg space, luggage space ride and handling.figo feels more planted with less  bodyroll. moreover figo feels more solid built both in its body frame where hard metal is used.only negative is, figo's interior doesnt look more premium compared to swift. but figo is more value for money and more practical. since most people dont use cars as race cars figo's performance is reasonable. maruti's experiment with a polymer petrol tank also doesnt seems to be a good move for swift buyers as it can cause safety issues in an accident situations. again, shedding nearly 30kg from a car means use of light metal and more plastic which again reduces the solidity of vehicle.less weight means the car will have tendency to be out of control at high speeds.and price too has increased nearly 30 -40,000 compared to old model. dont think its a sensible buy when you get more spacious car like figo for reasonable price. distance to empty feature which gives an idea of exact km the car can actually run on available fuel, which is the highlight of figo is not provided in swift.figo in zxi trim has got more features than swift vxi/vdi models with less price. and ford is now planning to improve its interoir is a good news for figo's market. So I think figo is more value for money than swiftVery soft metal body. Could get damaged by a small hit...

Areas of improvement Boot space is lacking,Bluetooth connectivity is nowhere,no 17-inch alloys on the car!
