Maruti Suzuki Swift Customer User Review

Swift a favourute of many for many years, some how seems to have fallen out of graces of Indian car buyers. It seems to have been replaced by the Baleno.

My Previous Cars

This is my families 2nd car, other car which is also Maruti Suzuki Swift is driven by my wife.

While buying my New Swift, I test drove Hyundai Elite i20, the i20 model which was launched in 2014. I did not buy it becasue it was little bit costly than Swift VXi. My friends who owned or were driving an Elite i20 also informed me that its mileage in ciy was just 10-11 Kmpl.

        Maruti Swift Customer Owner Review

Even though Hyundai Elite i20 looks much better than swift and its boot space is greater than Maruti Suzuki Swift, I decided against it basis low mileage and cost. I was considering Elite i20 Magna but it was costing me around 60000-70000 more than Maruti Suzuki Swift VXi. Buying and maintainance of Hyundai Elite i20 was expected to be more expensive than Maruti Suzuki Swift.

What I like amoubt my Maruti Suzuki Swift

AC Cooling is good, when I sit in other car and I I have been driven in Hyundai Elite i20, I felt Swift cooling is better than Elite i20.

Mileage is better and makes my drive quite economical.

Steering is smooth and managing it is easy. I think Baleno steering is much smoother than Swift.

Space utilisation in the car is very intelligent. On co-passenger side under the AC Vent there is a button which when you push a cup holders pops out, that's a good feature. Space for bottle holders is also good.

Glass of outside rear view mirror can be electrically adjusted from inside only, this feature is missing in Elite i20.

What I don’t like about my Maruti Suzuki Swift

When I drive other cars like Elite i20 and Baleno, I find driving comfort to be much more than my Maruti Suzuki Swift.

Swift gear box is more harder to manage than Elite i20 and Baleno.

Suspension is mediocre, if one goes over potholes and speed brakers, one can feel the jerks in the car.

When I cross Akshardham and reach the flyover if I am slow due to traffic before reaching the flyover, even at 40 Kms if I enter the flyover, I have to get the car into 3rd gear to climb the flyover. Don't why this happens.

The car does not have ABS, without ABS the steering gets locked. I had been to a Toyota Drive, wherein they had demonstrated a car with and without ABS. As per them a car with ABS under sudden braking condition one will have ability to move the steering whereas a car without ABS the steering will get locked. Locked steering means one will meet with accident for sure as one cannot maneouveur the car, we were also told that with ABS brake happens in spurts rather than suddenly.

Highway experience

I have been to Chandigarh, Agra, Mathura and Jim Corbett  in this car and I did not experience any difficulty. I have driven up to 120 Kmph on the highway, however, if any big vehicle was to cross from the side the car would shake a little, but I never felt out of control. It was just a feeling without anything actually happening to the car.


A good small stylish car.
