Conclusion

Consider the Swift VXI if you're seeking an exceptional value proposition in the affordable hatchback segment. This variant offers a comprehensive suite of features that cater to both daily necessities and modern conveniences. The standout features include 7-inch infotainment, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay and more.

The VXI is available in both manual and automatic transmission options, catering to diverse driving preferences. While factory-fitted alloy wheels are not included in the list of features, upgrading to the ZXI variant (approximately Rs. 1 lakh more) grants access to this aesthetic enhancement.

Beyond alloy wheels, the ZXI offers additional functionalities such as connected car tech, keyless entry, rear wiper & washer, LED headlights, and rear A/C vents.

Do you think that the VXI is the most value-for-money variant? Also, if you had to buy the new Maruti Suzuki Swift, which variant would you pick?

Here's what BHPian jetsetgo008 had to say on the matter:

Arranging in order of Value for money w.r.t features -

LXI > ZXI > VXI

If I were in the market I would not look beyond the LXI. The only essential misses in the LXI are internal adjustment for ORVM and the rear wiper. An additional Rs.25k would get us a very good quality audio setup(pioneer/sony) with reverse camera support.

Here's what BHPian It's_Magic had to say on the matter:

I will opt for the ZXI AMT variant as it provides me with almost all the necessary features, along with an automatic transmission. You don't really loose much compared with the ZXI+ variant.

I'm not sure why the rear camera is only available in the ZXI+ variant when you can get it from the mid-variant in various other cars. Similarly, I've never understood why manufacturers reserve the rear wiper and washer for the top-end variant. It's not a particularly expensive feature, but it's important for safety.

Here's what BHPian sudeepg had to say on the matter:

After reading through the Official review, I'd not consider Swift at all. My fall out with Maruti started from the day they undercut S-Cross purchasers. Then, they did the same with Jimny. Over a period of time, they have shortchanged their customers and put out poor products that are not at all exciting. So as a brand, Maruti is out of my list (although I still own the S-Cross 1.6 diesel and love it to bits).

I have found new respect for Hyundai and like Kia as well, which are contenders for my next (and second) car purchase, sometime later this year.
