I got one fitted on my Swift Dzire at JC road in Bangalore. Cost me about ₹2000 - steep but was exactly what I was looking for. This was a no-bolt solution - just made it rest over the rear AC bent. Comes with a small storage option for dark glasses or wallet.

Drove the new Swift Petrol MT over the weekend and boy oh boy, the car is fun!

As an owner of second generation Swift petrol, I could feel the throttle response has become sharper at lower RPMs which make it such an easy car to pick up speeds after a speed breaker and close the gaps.

Steering response, though has become lighter than the previous gen, but still gives adequate feedback. It doesn't feel dead at all and the new flat bottom steering is such a joy to hold. I made my friend remove the pathetic steering cover which he got installed and I'm sure the one which comes on ZXI and upwards must feel even better due to the factory stitched leather cover.

Front seats gives great amount of feel and the side bolstering kind of hugs you around. Guys, please don't go for seat covers right after the delivery even if you get them free with the car. Feel these lovely seats in their stock form and then decide. Fabric seats keeps us cool as well compared to the artificial leather seat covers which everybody goes for.
I thoroughly enjoyed driving the Swift with seat height at the lowest level. I would have loved if we could set it at even a level lower.

The instrument cluster looks sporty and even more from the passenger's point of view. I would've loved if Maruti had retained the temperature gauge.

Regarding the plastic quality inside the dash and door pads, it doesn't feels cheap like the outgoing model at a glance and feels better build. The older one feels more plastic-y, while this one felt a bit upmarket especially over the dashboard. But the plastic fades color pretty fast and should be taken care of in a proper way. The older car's plastic didn't fade as early as this one.

In a nutshell, I thoroughly enjoyed driving this car around and won't be hesitating to put my money on it, If I need a petrol manual hatch.

Got second service done. Service Adviser acknowledged the issue, and mentioned there was a company circular mentioning the fix as well. Paraphrasing him: "Grease in the release bearing could have hardened. We cleaned it out and re-greased the part". Apparently this is a permanent fix, and I should not be seeing the issue again. Clutch feels light now, probably equal or better than when the car was new. Leads me to think if long periods in the sun in the dealer's stockyard could have caused the problem. Will update the thread if issue resurfaces.

Anybody has any idea whether it is possible to replace swift's monochrome MID with Baleno's colorful one? Would love to try out a DIY in spare time.

To all the swift owners here, especially to those who travel frequently with 5 on board, do you folks face any issues with ground clearance?

I've taken 5 with luggage once between Bangalore and Ramanagara and 4 with luggage a couple of times over bad roads and some high road humps. No GC issues so far, but I've always been aware of the low GC and have driven accordingly.

GC numbers on paper do not look the best, however because of the stiffer suspension setup, I have not faced any major issues.

Yes I did managed to bottom out the car on full load, on 3 occasions (in last 10 months ownership), but such instances have been few and far between..

Came across a few rumours of Swift RS launching soon (March/April??). Any concrete information regarding the same? I'm seriously considering it as a replacement for my Figo D (2010).

Can anybody confirm if the LED projectors can be bought as an accessory and fitted to a lower trim?

You cannot buy it as an accessory but certainly pick it up as a part from a MGP store.

Before this you need to evaluate on the fitment and how easy or difficult it is - Retrofit without much ado or upgrade the related wiring harness etc.

I don't think you can retrofit these. I would assume they are linked to the ECU so that would have to be changed as well. You would have to buy the after-market non MGP accessory as and when available which would be standalone.

Suzuki Swift launches brand new Attitude Edition in the UK

Maruti Swift : Official Review-screenshot_20190119165730_twitter.jpg

Suzuki has announced a new special-edition version of its popular Swift hatchback called the Attitude.

Based on the entry-level model, the newcomer adds a range of styling upgrades in a bid to appeal to younger buyers.

It isnít the first time the Japanese brand has tried this strategy, having released an Attitude version of the old Swift back in 2012.

As with that car, the 2019 model is designed to offer youngsters some of the styling of a hot hatchback without the thirsty engine or the massive insurance premium.

Highlights include 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, carbon-effect skirts and a rear spoiler, but you also get front fog lights and a sportier mesh grille with a chrome surround.

Booked a top end Midnight Blue Swift ZXi+ AGS. We've been looking for an AT car to replace our 2011 Ritz VDi for the wife. The car will be used 100% in the city. Test drove Ignis, Baleno, Swift, i10 Grande. Baleno was too big for her use. Ignis didn't impress her with the looks. We had to choose between Swift and i10 Grande. It didn't take much on her part to notice the smile the Swift put on my face during the TD, and the choice was obvious.

Dealer is ABT, Guindy and the current wait time is about 30 days.

What if the key fob fails? eg; gets damaged. Is there a skeleton key to open the door and start the car?

I fixed a pair of fog lamp garnishes on my ZXi Swift and was happy with the decision. Cost me a reasonable 900 bucks for the pair at my Suzuki dealer and i think it enhances the front facia too.
