Maruti Swift 2016 Design

The Maruti Suzuki Swift is in its second-generation and its design has been inspired from the previous generation. The new Swift is more of an evolution than a revolution. The Maruti Swift 2016 is bigger in dimensions. The facelift that was launched in 2014 got minor upgrades for this premium hatchback. The revised version of the Swift got a new front grille with a minor upgrade for the fog lamps. There is a chrome insert around the fog lamps.

The side profile remains untouched other than the alloy wheel design. The rear door looks a lot smaller than the front one. This indicates more space in the front than the rear. The rear of the Maruti Swift 2016 hasn’t seen a major change either. This means that the Swift is the same when it comes to design and there are very minor cosmetic updates given to it.

Maruti Swift 2016 Interiors

The Maruti Swift 2016 has all black interiors, this has been done to make it look trendy, when compared to the Swift DZire that has black and beige interiors. This has been done on purpose to separate the audience and their liking. The Maruti Swift 2016  has a three-spoke steering wheel with twin dials for the instrument cluster, a centre console that has an integrated music system with bluetooth connectivity, USB and aux too. The Swift now even has reverse parking sensors, push start and stop and even keyless entry.

The front row seats on the Maruti Swift 2016 are large enough for six foot adults and this makes it a great option to consider. The rear seats on the Swift are a bit tight when it comes to knee room and even the boot size at 204 litres is extremely small. The rear seats fold with a 60:40 split. This is unique on the Swift in this segment at least. The Swift doesn’t have rear AC vents. The Swift has good storage places with space to keep your smart phone, keys and other knick knacks. The front door pocket can house a one litre bottle, while the rear can fit a half litre bottle. There are cup holders also in the front.

Maruti Swift 2016 Performance

The Maruti Swift 2016 has a 1.2-litre petrol engine that churns about 82bhp of power and 115Nm of peak torque. This engine will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission. One of the strong USPs of the Swift is its performance in this petrol engine. This is one of the most powerful engine when it comes to the real world driving. There is not much of a requirement to shift gears that often while driving in the city. This where the Swift stands ahead of its competition. The others struggle and one needs to change gears more frequently making it cumbersome.

The second engine on the Swift is the 1.3-litre diesel that churns about 75bhp of power and 190Nm of maximum torque. This diesel engine doesn’t just have performance but even the drivability is good on the Maruti Swift 2016. This diesel engine has good power at most of the engine speeds. This means it is a lot easier to overtake in city or even the highway without having to downshift. There is some amount of diesel clatter but then it does reduce once the engine warms up.

Maruti Swift 2016 Driving Dynamics

The Maruti Swift 2016 is one of the few Suzuki that we pick when it comes to handling. The chassis of this hatchback is responsive and changes directions without much of a hassle. It is agile and it does well around bends. This is one of the strong points of the Swift. This chassis has been built to handle Swift Sport’s power, hence with this engine it does a good job. The ride on the Swift too is composed. It is a bit stiff, but that to improve the handling. The Maruti Swift 2016 certainly has a great package when it comes to the ride and handling aspects. The other strong point for the Swift is its steering wheel. It is light at low speeds and it weighs as you gather momentum.
