What Makes Maruti Swift a Highly Preferred Choice among Car Buyers?

There is no need to get surprised if you notice every third car plying on Indian roads as Maruti Swift. Ever since its launch in May 2005, the hatchback has time and again proven its dominance in the Indian market. Having won the ‘Indian Car Of The Year’ (ICOTY) award 3 times for the year 2006, 2012, and 2019 respectively, Maruti Suzuki Swift has received accolades from critics as well as buyers. Undoubtedly, there are several reasons why this hatchback is a popular choice among car buyers. Let us take a glance at them:

Proven Reliability and Trust

Although the Indian market had been introduced with the 2 nd generation Swift, it overtime received upgrades in the form of 3 rd generation and 4 th generation to keep pace with technology and dynamic automobile industry. Even with its initial launch, the car received great response and took the automobile market in India by storm. Available in the market since such a long time, it has earned a name for reliability and trust, and this is the reason why people, right from 2 nd generation to 4 th generation, are still buying it.


One cannot deny the fact that mileage is something that we Indians always keep on top in our priority list when it comes to buying a car, especially for family. Thankfully, Swift ticks the right box on this point as well. The hatchback offers a pretty decent mileage of 22 kmpl and 28.4 kmpl for its petrol and diesel variants respectively. One of the key factors in Swift’s mileage is its HEARTECT platform, which as compared to previous versions, is lighter and stronger than ever.

Smooth Driving Experience

Maruti Suzuki Swift is powered with a 1.2 litre VVT petrol engine and 1.3 litre turbocharged diesel engine. The petrol engine generates 83PS and 113Nm of torque, and the diesel engine churns out 75PS and 190Nm of torque. Since the 4 th generation Swift is lighter by 100kg, it is quicker than its predecessors, and this is what contributes in offering a smooth driving experience to the buyers. The hatchback offers great maneuverability in heavy traffic, busy and narrow lanes.

Sporty Looks

Now this is something that has always been a solid point of this hatchback. The 4 th generation Maruti Suzuki Swift is stylist inside out, and lends a sporty look. Addressing the issue of the lack of rear seat room in previous versions, Maruti did a fantastic a job and has provided the coziest and spacious rear bench in its class. So with improved cabin space, and sleek and aggressive exteriors, the new facelifted Swift is all up to rule the segment again. Also, the car is easily customizable and one can personalize it as per their preferences.

Spare Parts and Service

As Maruti Suzuki is known for its nationwide presence, be it workshops, bodyshops, or outlets, you do not have to worry in case the car breaks down when you are traveling. With easy availability of spare parts and workshops across the nation, one can rest assured even in remote areas. So when it comes to after sales support, no other hatchbacks can match up with Swift.

Resale Value

Maruti Swift offers the best resale value in the segment. If maintained well, in some cases, owners can fetch up to 85% of its price after 3 years and more than 60% after 5 years. Since the car has built a great reputation in the market, there is no dearth of buyers who can actually pay a decent price to own this car. On the top of that, the association of the name Maruti Suzuki makes this hatchback highly demanding any day.

So these were the reasons that make Maruti Suzuki Swift a popular choice in the Indian market. In case, you are willing to buy this hatchback, do pay a visit to a nearby Maruti Suzuki ARENA showroom and know more about it.
