Maruti launched Swift in May of 2005. Swift was Maruti`s first endeavour into premium hatch back cars, a segment which was seeing ever increasing interest by cars buyers in India. Swift had a block buster launch, the response to the contemporary car which was bold and yet sporty was similar to the euphoria Maruti experienced in September 2000 when they launched the Alto for the first time.
Most Maruti cars have had rough beginning, the most widely published one being teh WagonR, which in the year 2000 was being dubbed as Maruti`s biggest failure, all thanks to its tall boy boxy design, which when compared to that era`s successful Santro was nothing short of an ugly duckling. Swift fortunately for Maruti became the darling of Indian car buyers almost immediately except for some initial hiccups from India`s largest market - Delhi NCR.
Swift epitomises Maruti`s DNA of delivering traditional values like; Fuel efficiency, reliability and performance and yet creating a new design philosophy of contemporary looks, attitude, road presence, bold and sporty. No wonder experts world over lapped it up and declared it as a `Car of the Year` in 11 countries world-wide.
Swift from Maruti was to some extent creating a new A2 segment (Cars with length between 3401 mm to 4000 mm) or Premium Hatchback segment in the Indian car market. Swift design is an inspiration from bikes and motorsports. A fact that is obvious in Swifts external styling, interiors and driving dynamics, no wonder Swift is known for its driving pleasure and class leading ride quality.
Swift has only gone from strength to strength, it`s popularity got the first booster dose when it got the 1.3 litre DDiS diesel engine plonked under its hood in Jan 2007. Swift went under the knife once again and came back with flying colours on 17th August 2011. The New 2011 Swift was built on a new platform that gave the Swift a longer wheelbase therefore some additional cabin space and some extra width which added some more shoulder room.
Swift reached the milestone of 1 Lakh cars in just 21 months since its launch, reached 2 lakh cars sales in 34 months post its 2005 launch and finally 3 Lakh cars sales figures in 45 months after its launch. Recent figures of close to 17000 + units per months is testimony to the fact Swift`s magic isn`t wearing off at all, to the contrary its popularity is only gaining strength month on month.
So what`s the reason for such performance in terms of its sales figures? We at ecardlr believe it`s got to do with its great ride quality, Maruti`s Heritage and non-aging looks, not to forget top-end features like; Automatic AC, top-of-the line music system, class leading safety features like airbags, ABS, EBD, Fogs, its looks enhanced by its tall stance great body lines and designer alloys. It appeals to those looking for a premium hatchback which is feature loaded, as spacious as a sedan, has decent road presence and is not seen as a compromise purchase. Being from Maruti, its easy on pocket in terms of its maintenance cost and class leading fuel efficiency of 21 KMPL for diesel and 15 KMPL for petrol also ensures lesser trip to fuel pumps and lower dent to one`s pocket.
