The interior of the vehicle has also been revamped and the new generation Maruti Suzuki comes with better quality materials.
This is the first time Swift has gone under radical design changes since its India launch in 2005. The steering wheel on the Suzuki Swift comes with media and other controls letting you interact with the infotainment without getting distracted. Upfront, you get a large single-aperture grille and new swept-back headlights. On the top rims, projectors lens & LED DRLs are placed.
The boldness of the auto is demonstrated by wrap around windshield with unified DLO (day light opening) graphic and vertically sweeping lamps.
Maruti Suziki Swift's new model still looks like the older auto but is more aerodynamic and has a higher wheelbags, so there's a little more space for the rear seat passengers. In February and March, units sold will be more, said the sales head, taking the overall 2017-18 sales to an excess of 1.75 million units.
The model development cost for Swift is over Rs 700 crore.
