Since its launch in 2005, cumulatively the Swift has sold over 1.89 million units in India. Ironically, Suzuki’s 20 millionth vehicle produced in India was also a Swift.

Built on Suzuki’s innovative 5th generation HEARTECT platform, the all-new Swift offers a superior power to weight ratio with an improved acceleration performance as compared to the outgoing generation of the car.

Technology features are also offered on the new Swift like Smart Play Infotainment with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/ Mirror Link compatibility and voice recognition.

In addition, new customers according to the company, have appreciated the newly added Auto Gear Shift (AGS) technology to the brand.

This hatchback competes with the likes of Hyundai i20 and the Ford Figo in India. The new generation Swift was also one of the most awaited hot hatchbacks in the country and Maruti Suzuki launched the car at the 2018 Auto Expo in India.
