Not a very nice looking car for whatever price it is going to be sold for. will be a good choice who wanted a swift diesel in zdi guise which is not available. in fact maruti should come out with a swift zdi and sx4 diesel. why does maruti associate safety with high end variants only unlike skoda. i shall always prefer a swift zdi hatch over a dezire zdi considering the looks. the front end of the car dosent go with the rear end. a nice job on the rear end but a total faliure on the front. the front of the swift is purely for a hatchback and not for a sedan. so maruti should have reworked on the front.

exactly my thoughts! There was a time i used to like a car called Swift but not anymore i guess. The car's novelty factor will definitely take a hit after this ugly looking retrofit.

If you look at your RVM or from the front, how will you know if its a Swift or Dzire ??
U will be able to distinguish it by two chrome slants in the grill instead of a complete honeycomb as found in the hatch.

Great work Eddy. I think Dzire ddis will be a hit in india. And our forum{Team-Bhp} is the best automobile forum in India.

Suddenly, the 'UGLY' Rear looks Promising and the 'CUTE' Front looks Awkward - on the Sedan

Its weird cos MSIL would have expected people to hate the back rather than the front. Rather most of us find the front weird in the sedan.

No! Im not going to criticize the looks. Its just that the front
does not suit the sedan. Suprisingly the back looks ok.

dont you guys think that maruti should have changed atleast a few options available in the front, to make it look sleek.
