Great work there selective.. Maruti seems to be better then hyundai at marketing the swift..

Guess too many people stuck on that site taking way too much time to load..

looks like a race with hyundai getz, but will definitely overtake. Want to see this baby in action. Hope maruti(kanjoos) puts a more value product with this.

Btw : the link http://www.marutiswift.com provided was not in www.marutiudyog.com??

Hey Selective!! Neat find. All this buzz reminds me of the days leading up to Hyundais Getz launch.

Too bad it does not have specifications yet. But the car clearly looks like the Indian version with smaller wheels and a Maruti-Suzuki badge on the rear hatch.

Yeah, it is really a stripped down model for India. By what we can see on the site, the plastics look cheap, and the there is no integrated audio system as it is in international models. And there is only automatic climate control mentioned on the higher end model. No mention of ABC, airbags, etc. I hope build quality is upto the international standard. Let's wait and see in real!!


And, I was trying to dig into Maruti's web server (site) for Swift, as I was sure they will be preparing the web pages for this car. And finally got something for my efforts!!
