Great job Eddy.

Looks not very impressive, but not looking ugly too.

I personally dont like it, they are going the TATA Indica/Indigo way.

If you look at your RVM or from the front, how will you know if its a Swift or Dzire ??

Good scoop! However, the front does not match with the look of the rear, in my opinion.
It is good to know that they are providing audio controls on the steering wheel, like in the SX4.

IMO, they should have atleast changed the front headlights to a different design and it would have looked cool.
Exactly, that is what I wanted to say in my prior post.

Great job Eddy. This looks much similar to Swift in overall looks. Should sell good if priced properly

Headlight mimic of Sx4, would have done wonders.

They just had to make the boot a bit more curvy. Would have looked like an Amby reborn. What were Maruti thinking????? I guess it is time they realise that they cannot go on competing with our own DC, leaning on the accumulated goodwill.

First the Estilo and now this. Wonder whats next???

Cheers,
Rajan

the car looks nice,plus maruti is offering a lot of features at a very nominal price

OT:i know that dzire has steering stereo controls(zxi,zdi)..will somebody please confirm whether this feature is also available in the hatchback version(swift minor).(zxi)

I was thinking the same.

The back looks great.

The only negative is that the car still has the look of boot added to swift hatch.
