Maruti Swift Exterior Mileage

Maruti Swift on the outside is mature and aerodynamic with the front facia carrying a long bonnet with a toothy grille that looks quite stylish. The swept back headlamps are bigger in size while the body coloured OVRMs along with the in-build turn indicators goes well with looks. Swift rides on the sporty 165/80 R14 tyre with the top Z plus variant getting 185/65 R15 ten spoke alloy wheels. At the rear, tail lamps are sharp and wide with the clear view lens that extends into the C-pillars. The large bumper takes up most of the space at the rear while atop the sharply raked windscreen, sits the lip spoiler that enhances the cheekiness. The 2018 Swift will come with a lot of changes including the aggressively protruding hexagonal grille with trapezoidal headlamps and LED DRLs.

Maruti Swift Interior

Inside the cabin is where you notice much of improvement. Swift with the wheelbase of 2430 mm is quite a spacious car, while the front seats offer more legroom as compared to its rear seats. Dashboard is bestowed with single colour tone with temperature dials positioned below audio system. Dial arrangement looks classy with silver accent. Seats in the car are covered with fabric upholstery that goes well with the ambiance. But here, the disadvantage of severely limited seating space and below average headroom will surely disappoint many.
