Maruti Swift 2017 Overview
Maruti Swift came into the light way back in the year 2005 that let Suzuki’s image in the global market transformed drastically. The vehicle’s two-box design, sharp styling and wide stance struck a chord with the customers.

Now the Indo-Japanese carmaker is now coming up with the third- generation model and this is expected to go on sale internationally early next year, while the India launch will be at 2018 Auto Expo in February.
The new Maruti Swift features blackened pillars, distinct two-box silhouette and wide haunches. This time around, the Swift gets longer wheelbase and larger 16- inch wheels that make it look bigger but retains that cheeky character which is centre of its charm. Swift currently competes with Volkswagen Polo, Fiat Punto, Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo. So till we get our hands on the Maruti Swift 2018, let’s see what the present Swift is offering that is making the automaker delay the launch of the updated model.

Maruti Swift Exterior
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. The upcoming 2018 Swift will get black interiors with white and matte chrome elements and many more enhancements that would surely place it on top of its game.
