Is it safe? are there any customer problems and is it an overall good car? There would be some questions on your mind, hopefully, they are answered below.

Pros/Advantages of the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift

  • 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift has refined its engines with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine that give a good sporty hatchback response. The new Maruti Suzuki Swift comes with the Heartect platform that sheds around 85 kilograms of the car.
  • The design of the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift gives the car a more aggressive and sporty look. The top manual variants get a new headlamp with a fresh new front grille, and a new C shaped taillamp.
  • Safety features like dual airbags and ABS with EBD are a standard safety feature in all the variants. The manual cars with touchscreen infotainment get wide angle reverse parking camera. 

Cons/Disadvantages of the 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift

  • The 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift AMT variants do not come with important design features that are present in the other models such as DRLs and projector headlamps, touch-screen infotainment system. Both petrol and Diesel variants with AMT are available only on the ZXI/VDI variants and it is a huge miss for AMT buyers even though this is a strategy to keep the car cost competitive.

  • Maruti Suzuki Swift does not get rear A/C vent as the company claims that the efficiency of A/C has gone up and makes the feature irrelevant. And a rear arm-rest is a missed feature as a lot of competition are offering it todays vehicles. along with pullout cup holders.

  • Brakes are slightly unpredictable which makes braking at high speeds a bit of a concern and the body feels much stiffer with the suspension giving a very rugged ride.  

If the Above mentioned drawbacks are not much of a concern then the Maruti Suzuki Swift is a good car that has value for money. With a sporty design and a refined ride, the Swift is sure to satisfy your day to day commute by making it as enjoyable as possible.
