From the pics, the tail lamp and grill sure look good. Not sure about the rear bumpers though. Can't wait to check it out in person.

Hey, aren't the pics posted by "partypest" the real ones? I mean, the pics look like scanned bits of the brochure... The grille is copied from the Swift Sport. Tail lamps look good.

The pics posted by "shimoo" are Japanese version of new Swift right? I don't think the indicator RVMs will make it here.

So Swift ZXi gets:

1.) Tilt Steering (I thought Swift Zxi already had this feature)
2.) Integrated stereo.
3.) Steering mounted audio controls.
4.) White illumination lights for the instrument panel.

They have SX4'ised the Swift. Suddenly the SX4 Zxi seems like a rip off while the Vxi seems like daylight robbery! What did I pay over Rs.3 lakhs for? The M series engine? And the sedan bodystyle?

It comes with tilt steering now? Thats excellent. Hope its carried over to all models now.

Steering mounted controls are also nice touch. But it would only make it to the ZXi, i suppose!

It is time they bring in updated M series engine on second thoughts maybe that is how they will distinguish Dezire from swift as appearances are same .

Please take pain to read all the post's

It's already mentioned by so many ppl in the same thread that

New Swift

1)Does Not have any engine changes
2) Not at all a style model launched in japan long back..
3) Only integrated audio + tilt steering for ZXI,

Apart from ZXI every other model get a GIFT of rs 6-8k Price HIKE from maruti

apart from tilt steering and integrated audio, remaining changes should be available for all the models, right? Includes LDi and VDi as well

3 Lakhs ?? I guess, Swift ZXI will be close to 6L now with all these goodies. So you pay 2L more for SX4 , not 3L.

i really dont understand MUL's strategy,
i mean, why could they not have launched Swift in the first place with Crystal Clear tail lamps, now for 9k more, its an "ALL NEW SWIFT"

The front grill and the bumper is definitely a copy of the Swift Sport.

I really hope they lanch this new model with some new colors.

I am game for Yellow.(Yellow was on Old Zen, Wagon R, and Estilo also) and i feel it looked fresh and good..

Yellow speaks out aloud - "SPORTS!!!"
Dont u guys think?
