Peak torque is OK. What I meant was the more linear approach of torque distribution across the RPM range (read better torque at lower rpms). Even if the peak torque is just an Nm higher, the torque distribution can have a more linear approach now due to the VVT Lets wait for the official torque chart and T-BHP review.

Probably a comparo shoot out? Since all the three cars you mentioned belong to the same segment & all of them new in the block !

I get the same error. Should be a JS or Flash code gone wrong.

The site now shows around 18 hours, which means that the launch is around 11 am tomorrow.

Cant wait!

Speculation continues, now with prices too.
Another test review,
Conclusion – The Swift has grown up and has evolved into a much better car in all parameters. Maruti has addressed the previous issues and this new model is a positive step forward. The competition is heating up but Maruti Suzuki does know the ingredients (low price and high fuel efficiency) to make the new Swift a success. The much wanted ZDi variant has also been launched by Maruti. Powered by trend setting K-Series and the tried and tested Multijet engine, the Swift’s performance is sure to set you smiling. With plusher interiors, better ride and handling and improved fuel efficiency, not to forget Maruti’s bullet proof dealership network, the all new Swift is all set to remain what it has always been, the segment leader."

"Car tested: New 2011 Maruti Suzuki Swift ZXi and ZDi
Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 6,65,000/- (ZXi), Rs. 7,45,000/- (ZDi) (est)"

Cheers!

Rs.7.45L OTR for the ZDi? How much would that mean ex-showroom? I guess Maruti would try to keep it near 7L OTR for the ZDi in Kerala (that would mean an ex-showroom price of about Rs.6.5L).

That would mean about 6.2-6.3L for the Zxi petrol. And assuming the diesel variant to be priced about 80K more than the equivalent petrol variant, the ZDi would cross 7L ex-showroom. I'm not sure it's going to be that expensive. Could it be 5.39L for the diesel base variant?

Strictly, I don't think so.
IMHO, 4.4 Lacs is the starting price point for base Swift LXi(petrol) & 5.15 lacs for base LDi Diesel(Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
Anything beyond this will be a matter of concern for both MSIL & its Customers.

Sounds waaaay to expensive for LXI. We have to remember that Maruti need to leave room for the New Dzire, which essentially is an entry level sedan.

My pricing predictions (ex-showroom):

LXI: ~440 000
VXI: ~490 000
ZXI: ~560 000

LDI: ~500 000
VDI: ~550 000
ZDI: ~630 000

This pricing leaves space for the New Dzire and will 'catch the eye' () of any hatch buyer across the spectrum (From Beat/i10 to i20/Polo etc.).

Let's see what happens!

My guess as well. I don't think Maruti will price it much higher than the outgoing Swift. May be a little more, yes!

Sorry, it's 4.39L for Petrol base variant. The source "confused" me.

That's about 30K more than the Ritz LXi. Going by that logic, the Swift LDi should cost about 5.19L.

Some very good news from Motorbeam review of the swift-

Quote:
Build Quality - Maruti cars have never been on the podium when it comes to build quality but the new Swift is different. Build quality, fit and finish deserve a special mention. The Swift was prone to rattles and though it may to too early to tell, it seems to be very well put together with no rattles or squeaks of any nature.

Though this prices look realistic & as per my expectations, the ZDi still looks kinda expensive.

Mumbai Ex showroom prices will be nearly same as Ex showroom Kerala; a max difference of 10K I guess. But they have higher RT + Octroi etc which bumps up the OTR to close to 7.4L. I presume Kerala will have an OTR of 7.1L max.

Are these the old prices? If so we might need to add a 20K to the base variant to get the new prices I assume.

I guess you are close. I will add another 10-20K to all those prices though.

That's what even I expect.

Yesterday had a look at the new Swift. The quality of panels and materials used in dash has definitely gone up.
