Hmm, this 'cost cutting' theory seems to be something like "Haathi ke Khane ke aur Dikhane ke Daat alag hote hai". Nowadays every other company is following the same 'Funda' to some or more extent..
So the customer himself needs to be aware enough to look for everything that he wants or doesn't want in the vehicle!

I guess I prefer adding such parts myself rather than have cheap ones factory fitted.
It will just add to the list and be useless since I would upgrade to a better one anyways.

Second picture is of the filter element. I paid Rs 800 for the filter installation at the Ernakulam.
Is there only a dummy present in all the Swift models?

There is no dummy filter in the Swift, Swift's got an openable filter box lid so you buy the filter, open the lid and put in the filter.

I have used Swift's cabin filter in my AStar, but i had to cut the filter box to make an opening as it doesn't have a lid. Swift's cabin filter from Bosch cost me 650 bucks, their activated filter costs Rs1300 which i plan to use for the next change.

No, what I meant was, is there a filter present at all? Or is it just a blank space which allows all the dust and grime from outside the car to flow directly on to our face?

And Maruti expected the consumer to do the needful?

^^There is no filter present there at all. Its customer's choice whether to get it installed in his car or not. The service adviser told me that customers in general crib at mentioning cabin filter because it adds up another 900 rupees to the bill. So he was really happy when i asked him to install cabin filter in my Swift and telling me how beneficial it is and how most people don't understand etc etc.
