Full Review

Exterior Exterior built quality of steel and fiber is very poor and paint quality can be better with doubble coat. This is one specific area where maruthi needs to concentrate as every review will have same observations infact 100/100.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Interior is quite better in compare to its exterior but the plastic quality can be improved and can have much catchy appearence. Front space is very good and sitting is very comfortable and sporty but rear sits are clumsy and having less space for leg room.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox This is one area in swift where hardly any one will complain as the pickup, response and handling of car is very good and very sporty compare any other cars in 1.2 liter segment. Swift can even plan for uplift version of petrol engines with more than 90hp as it is sporty segment. No complain even after driving 16000+ KM in one year in all conditions.

Ride Quality & Handling Ride quality as already mentioned is very good at par with Polo and superb handling over corners and bad roads. Good suspensions and better controlled car.

Final Words It is one of the best car in its segment with its performance, handling and sporty looks but lacks in its exterior built quality and fair interiors.

Areas of improvement 100% improvement area is exterior built quality and paint quality with some interior enhancements.
