My Swift VDI ABS 2015 model has done exactly 9244 km as of today, from the past two weeks I have noticed that under hard acceleration and above 3300 rpm in second gear, there is a lot of rattling noise coming from front right side of the engine bay. this problem didn't existed before but now there is definitely something loose or wrong in the engine bay. I will get it checked next week during the first service of the car. i will post if the problem has been rectified by dealer or not. has anyone else got any issue like this under hard acceleration ?

Just reviving this thread. Given that the 2018 Swift would be based on the Baleno Platform - can we expect it to be rattle-free?

Same platform has nothing to do with how interior plastics of two cars are put together. Even Baleno rattles to some extent. A lot has to do with how cars are driven. Driving fast over speed humps can cause problems for sure in any car. However, any cars can be made rattle proof with some technical skills. My Swift and Honda were both rattle free even after several years.

An update after ~10years.

We still have the Swift and it hasn't had any rattles till date. Just our luck, I guess.

I beg to differ here! We had a VW polo after first gen swift, and I am sure Polo almost no rattles after 1L km(around 98k to be precise). We had a first gen swift too, which started rattling after few thousand km!

Right now, my second gen swift is almost nearing 40k km, and is rattle free, even after being carefully driven(only self driven car till now), we had to tighten few bolts here and there to keep the rattles away.

Other aspects of ownership are completely different, completely in love with my swift

I second that. For the first couple of years my Swift was rattle free. With age, it has developed some rattles now. Although I love the ride, the tiny rattles that pop up from the interiors is irritating.
