I am not sure if i missed bu went through the brochure twice. I don't find a mention of Airbags on the new Swift. Is this a miss on the write-up as its just launched or really the Airbags have been removed as a cost cutting measure to make it cheaper in comparison to the competitors?

If yes i believe that's a serious safety feature missing.

Somehow at 7.6l OTR in bangalore i'm confused if i should cancel or go ahead with my booking fro ZDI. At that price the comparisons with other options (though mid or lower variants) of i20 and Polo start to arise.
With the swift i get ok features and a fun to drive car. i20 has its plus with interiors and a powerful engine. Polo ONLY with the 1.5 makes a case, else no considering it for sure.

IMO, the number of ZDI bookings would not be much and for the other variants the prices are more or less as expected. So I doubt on the cancellation part!

Cheers!

Shameful and rather unforgivable making those kind of mistakes on your launch website. Am sure the marketing team had this information a long time ago. Indian carmakers continue to underestimate how sophisticated consumers are these days, with most of our research being conducted online.

I didn't find the prices that shocking at all. A fully loaded diesel Swift at 7.5 lac sounds like a good value proposition to me (a Vento TDI highline costs about 10.5 on the road in Pune). Half tempted to trade in my 2006 Vxi for one of these!

What is the D component here? Ex-showroom ZDi price in Chennai is 648,384.

ashok, I don't think that Chennai Ex-showroom for ZDI will be 6.38L. It will be higher than that because of the higher VAT in Tamilnadu. Carwale may be wrong.

Now after the Swift price list, it looks like New Dzire(<4M) will be either equal to or more than the current Dzire despite the reduction in the length of the car.

Initially new Dzire was expected to be cheaper by 40K when compared to the current one. Any news on whether both the models will be continued?

I guess D Component is for discount.

Petrol model prices are OK, but Diesel prices are way more than what is expected!

Booked ZXi, it comes for around 6.6 OTR BLR. I feel top end is equipped for the price. From the day he heard price reduction of Jazz he was confused and he is ready to stretch budget and go for the Jazz. According to me Swift suit him the best as he drive frequently to Kannur and roads are not great on this route. I have been asking him to go for diesel option, he just won't listen.

I asked him to wait till TBHP review to take final decision. If Honda bring some surprises tomorrow, he will cancel without thinking much.

What is Maruti doing with website, I thought in new Swift their major effort was required in website :-)

Hi!

Just read that the new Swift has been launched and the Introductory prices for the new Swift (ex showroom New Delhi) are :-


LXi Petrol: Rs. 4.22 lakhs
VXi Petrol: Rs. 4.76 lakhs
ZXi Petrol: Rs. 5.53 lakhs
LDi Diesel: Rs. 5.17 lakhs
VDi Diesel: Rs. 5.61 lakhs
ZDi Diesel: Rs. 6.38 lakhs

Source - Home page of yahoo mail news.

With the above pricing the ZDi diesel variant should be approximately close to 7.1 L in Pune. Buying the I20 crdi makes more sense now.

Cheers,
naj

I think some of the responses on this thread to the pricing represents the problem Maruti might face: "I'm spending 7L+ for a hatch, so why should I spend it on a Maruti"?

It would be interesting to know the reaction of someone who had booked old Swift Vdi+ABS. Now that there's no ABS in VDi, would he be willing to purchase the new VDi, or upgrade to ZDi or cancel the booking and go for some other car?

Or running around for arranging finance. I know a friend who is doing just that right now.

I am looking for a TD & the Official Test Drive Report.

The new Swift is 3850mm. I guess the Dzire based on this platform will be a Notchback. Expect the prices to overlap. I feel the Indian market is more mature now to understand this concept.
