Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Overview

Ever since its launch in 2005, Maruti Suzuki Swift has been ruling Indian roads. Evolved with fine designing and engineering, it has redefined the dynamics of the Indian automotive industry. It received some major changes in 2007, which further helped the car perform well in terms of sales. In 2011, this premium hatchback went through some ground breaking modifications, reflecting the comprehensive automotive research work of the engineering team. This time, the objective was to work on the loopholes of the previous version and cater to the new demand of the growing Indian automotive market.
Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Overview
On grounds of performance, mileage and looks, the all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift is definitely a better car than its predecessor. The extended chassis has helped the car get more cabin space. With increased width of 5 mm, the Swift has got a premium appeal. The car’s interior is highly inspired by its sibling Kizaski – a luxury sedan. The unchanged boot space and material quality are two areas where we expected the car to have gotten better. Although both the engines - 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and 1.3-litre mulijet diesel, have remained the same, better aerodynamics and slightly-tuned engines have made it an even more responsive and sporty vehicle to drive. While the 1.2-litre petrol mill belts out the maximum power output of 86 bhp, the 1.3-litre diesel engine produces 74 bhp. With improved fuel efficiency of 18.6 kmpl, the new Swift is now even more economical.Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Overview
In terms of handling and ride quality, the new Swift is miles ahead due to its competency to deal with the bumpy Indian roads quite well. Maruti Suzuki Swift is available in both petrol and diesel versions in three trim levels - L, V and Z.

The next generation Maruti Swift shares great resemblance with its predecessor, but the new design alterations have added a sporty charm to the vehicle. With its curvy and elegant body, the Swift is definitely one of the most beautiful cars ever seen in its segment. The new Swift looks bigger with extended dimensions, stylish front grill, large headlamps, ORVMs with integrated blinkers, chrome-finished logo and fog lamps. The coloured door handles, thin window glasses, mirror cowls and alloy wheels further enhance its aggressive look. Its rear looks quite refreshing with body-colored bumper and chic LED tail lights. Maruti Swift has all the crunchy features that have made it a game changer in the Indian automotive industry.

The 165/ 80 R14 and 185/ 65 R15 are the standard tyre sizes for 14- and 15-inch steel wheels, respectively. The tyres are highly efficient and offer better grip over the rough Indian roads.

Get inside the car, and you will notice rich upholstery and all-black interiors. With an extended cabin area, there is a good knee space for rear passengers to make long drives enjoyable.

The integrated stereo system with six high-quality speakers, steering mounted audio controls and three-level volume controls give pleasure while driving the all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift. Its audio controls illuminate during night to provide you better visibility. You will find many other features, like electrically-adjustable ORMVs. However, all these features come with the top-of-the-line trim only.

Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Engine & Transmission

Coming in both petrol and diesel engine options, the Swift has total six variants:
Petrol - LXI, VXI and ZXI
Deisel - LDI, VDI and ZDI
The petrol version of the car derives its power from the 1.2-litre KB12 unit that has a displacement capacity of 1197 cc, while the Swift diesel has the proven and potent 1.3-litre multijet motor under its hood. While the petrol mill has an MPFI (Multi Point Fuel Injection) system, the diesel engine has a 5-step Multi Injection CRDi system.

When it comes to performance, both the units are powerful and responsive. With a 16-valve DOHC (Double Over Head Camshaft) valve train and four-cylinder set-up, the petrol mill churns out a maximum power output of 85.8 bhp and 114 Nm of peak torque, making it one of the most powerful engines in its segment. The oil burner 1.3-litre diesel unit too is equally impressive with 74 bhp and 190 Nm. Despite being a hatchback, the Swift is one of the few vehicles in its segment that is as good for highway driving as it is for driving in the city and that has been the reason behind its popularity everywhere.

Both the 1.2-litre K-series petrol and Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre multijet diesel versions won't disappoint you in this department. You will love throttling them. Having equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, the Swift petrol touches the 0 to 100 kmph mark in about 12 seconds. That is the case with the Swift dieselas well. Even it does the same in about 12 seconds at a top speed of 150 kmph. Despite having much better ride quality than most of its competitors, the Swift isn't as 'swift' as its rival Hyundai i20, especially till the third gear. But as soon as one enters the fourth gear, it gives you a sense of stability and sportiness that you would just like to rev it hard.

As mentioned above, the Swift is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre K-Series VVT petrol mill coupled to a five-speed manual transmission pumps out 85.6 bhp at 6000 rpm and 114 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. The 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine, on the other hand, mated to a five-speed manual and turbocharger, belts out 74 bhp at 4000 rpm and 190 Nm at 2000 rpm. So in terms of power, both the engines are impressive and in fact better than most of their competitors. What impresses more is the improved NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) level; the designers have worked really well on insulation that one doesn’t feel any noise inside the cabin.

Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Mileage

Good fuel economy is one of the virtues that define a Maruti Suzuki car and the case is no different with the Swift. Both the petrol- and diesel-powered models of the car are highly frugal.
Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Mileage
While the petrol-engined Swift returns an impressive mileage of around 15-16 kmpl in city, driving on highways takes it upto 18-19 kmpl.

The ARAI-certified mileage figures for both the versions of Swift are 18.6 kmpl and 22.9 kmpl, respectively.

Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018) Braking and Safety

When it comes to safety, the new Maruti Swift is ahead to its predecessor; however, competitors like Hyundai i20 are still more feature rich. The safety features offered with the car are dual SRS front airbags, braking assist features, ABS (Anti-lock braking System), computerized anti-theft system, automatic lock system, front and rear fog lamps, highly mounted stop lamps, side impact beams, front and rear ELR seat belts, child lock, double horn, etc. However, most of the advanced ones are only available in top-end variants.

The new Maruti Swift leaves a positive impression with its sharp handling and powerful braking system. It offers superb grip and stability till 130 kmph. However, it still needs improvement on edges. In terms of handling, Maruti Swift is a gem of a vehicle with a sporty character. Despite having well-proportioned dimensions, the Swift has a body roll around the corners, though it remains stable and flat, giving you a great grip on the road.

What do we think about Maruti Suzuki Swift (2014-2018)?

Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of the very few cars available in its segment that are good at both looks and ride quality. It's in fact superior in handling, ride quality and high speed stability than the cars priced even higher than this. Interior quality is one area that still needs a lot of improvement.

Maruti Swift vs Hyundai i20
India’s best-selling premium hatchback Maruti Swift’s new version looks very sporty and stylish without losing the conventional essence. On the other side, based on the company’s patented fluidic sculpture, the Hyundai i20 proves to be a tough competitor of the Swift. The interiors of both the hatchbacks are well equipped with various comfort and safety features. With extended wheelbase and dimensions, the Swift is more spacious. But in terms of plastic quality, Hyundai i20 leads the race. Both the cars are available in two engine options – petrol and diesel. The revv-happy petrol engine of Swift puts an impressive power output. Also, the 1.3-litre multijet diesel unit of the Swift is a gem of an engine, though on papers i20’s 1.4-litre CRDi diesel proves to be more powerful. But when it comes to ride quality, stability and handling, the Swift steals the show. The robust suspension and braking system of the Maruti Swift enhance the handling and drivability. The NVH refinement levels and engine performance are pretty impressive. On the other hand, the Hyundai i20 delivers a decent ride quality at low speed, but its suspension system fails to cope up with adverse driving situations. Due to light steering wheel and hard braking, the car shows nervousness at high speeds. In terms of fuel efficiency too, there’s not much difference between the two. While the Swift diesel offers a mileage of 22.9 kmpl on highways, the Hyundai i20 offers a mileage of 21.9 kmpl.
