Thank you all of you. This is confidence inspiring. I am looking out to replace my Ritz diesel with an AMT. Swift ticks most of the boxes. Many a times i'll be seating 5 adults in the car, and hence this question is very important for me.

I am waiting for them to launch the top end in AMT as i don't want to struggle with the headlamp throw the way i do right now with my ritz.

• Diesel AT is too jerky.

Is it very bad or just in comparison with Petrol? On the Brezza, Auto pundits are praising the same? With just 10nm more torque, will it differ?

At least in Swift there is an option for Petrol compared to Brezza.

Will the owners through some light on Diesel AMT.

Last sunday i test drove the Swift Petrol AMT and boy its fun. Its peppy, the 1st to 2nd gear change is evident, but post that its almost seamless. I drive a ritz diesel, so Vs the NVH that I am used to, Swift felt easily livable. They did not have a diesel AMT to drive. Also, the dealer mentioned that for Swift, Brezza and DZire there is no exchange offer available, is this true?

Has anyone been able to replace the space saver spare wheel with a full size one? The zxi/zxi+ models come with 15inch wheels but the spare Tyre is a 14 inch one ! Visually I am not able to make out whether a 15ich steel spare Tyre can fit in the existing space.

Coming to my 21 day experience with the zxi AMT, i am happy to say that the AMT gearbox has improved in its shift quality. Definitely better than what it was when new. No more jerks when trying to be aggressive while overtaking ,but the gearbox still gets confused on steep slopes behind slow moving traffic.
For ghat/hill driving, need to use the manual mode definitely!

Yeah, this is one thing which I need as well, while I don't drive it on regular basis, I miss it as a driver as well as a passenger.

Just returned from a weekend drive from Chennai to Pondicherry. The AMT petrol was an absolute breeze to drive! Absolutely no exhaustion from the entire trip. You just have to plan your overtakes a little better and the best way to do this is using manual mode.

I don't remember seeing the FE dipping below 20Kpl! I know that sounds insane, but I was looking at the gauge throughout to see what it was possible of doing.

Do not take the mileage displayed on MID to be true. Use the Full Tank to Full tank method for correct values.


The Mileage indicator can show a max of 50 kmpl if you drive at steady speed and is pretty unreliable in showing the actual fuel efficiency

Test drove the Swift AMT today. I want to replace my wife's Chevy Spark with this car. New Swift AMT will be a good replacement. The major challenge I am having is AMT is not available in ZXi+ variant. And ZXi doesn't come with the touch screen music system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. This is a bummer. The sales person is confident I can replace the stock audio system in ZXi with an after market system. Is that possible? Will the after market system support controls on the steering.
