Maruti Suzuki’s premium hatchback Swift has sold more than 25 lakh units in India over the past 16 years.

When it was introduced in 2005, Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL) asserted that it helped build an entire market in the nation and that the car had delighted drivers for more than three decades.

There is a 1.2-litre petrol engine available for the Maruti Suzuki Swift, which delivers 89bhp and 112Nm of torque. There are two transmission options for this motor: a five-speed manual transmission or an automatic manual transmission system.

Swift continues to surprise us

Swift has consistently topped the sales statistics in India’s passenger vehicle class, and was the most popular vehicle in 2020-21, according to IHS Markit. As a result of timely style, interior features, and even engine upgrades the sporty hatchback has been able to maintain its position of strength despite newer competition and India’s overall preference for SUV body types.

Maruti continues to place a large investment in Swift, among other products, and the sales data demonstrate why. “The Maruti Suzuki Swift has earned the hearts of over 2.5 million Swift fans in every generation,” says the company “Maruti Suzuki India Limited Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) Shashank Srivastava “With its sparkling appearance and powerful performance, the sporty Swift has established a wonderful legacy.”

It has been regularly renewed to reflect the changing demands of its evolving youthful clients, with more than 52% of subscribers under the age of 35. “Without the unwavering support of our customers, we would not have been able to achieve this extraordinary milestone,” Srivastava added.

The Swift

Idle start-stop and honeycomb mesh grille come standard on the freshly released Swift 2021. Fuel efficiency is 23.20 kmpl for manual transmission and 23.76 kmpl for automatic transmission. With strong appealing headlights and sporty wheels, the hatchback has a dynamic look. Single and two-tone colour options are available for the vehicle. In addition to LXi, VXi, ZXi, ZSi+ and dual-tone ZXi+, it is also available in five other variations.

Since it was released in February at 5.73 lakh (ex-showroom), the price of the new Swift has risen due to a variety of variables. Hyundai Grandi10 Nio and Volkswagen Polo are among the cars it will fight up against, as will Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger, which are also inexpensive sub-compact SUVs.
