Maruti Swift Has Once Again Showed Its Class

Maruti Suzuki Swift has once again showed its class with 1, 08,000 units of the new Swift already being booked. This is highest pre sales booking figure for any car in India till date.

The company in spite of internal turmoil at the Manesar plant has taken stock of situation with a capacity of over 700 cars a day, as a combined capacity of its two plants. However, the efforts do seem to do very little for the long waiting period of about five months for the petrol version.

Maruti Swift, the new version might fool you as if there is nothing different but wait till you see the inside. The new version has some radical changes in the interiors, instrument console and also has a small yet very critical additional space at the back seat. The space at the rear seat is a result of competition and Suzuki has done well to increase the rear seat space which has been done at the cost of cargo space in the hatch.

One problem though might still bother you at least in the Indian version is that the flood lights still have a lot left to be desired in terms of the quality. The Maruti Swift should have had the headlights with the new technologies available. The low quality lights do require a bit of eye straining especially while driving during the night. However other safety aspects seem to have moved a notch higher. It has all the basic safety systems from gen next airbags to braking circuits and lots of small tweaks to ensure that your driving is not only smooth but also safe.

All said and done the new Swift does live up to its old reputation and the proof of this is the already record bookings of up to 100000. Surely Maruti still knows the Indian consumer well then anybody and has kept all the main ingredients of a successful car intact for the new Swift as well. This is really commendable in spite of a number of competitors namely Hyundai i10, Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Volkswagen Polo and Nissan Micra.

Company sources confirmed that the affordability factor of the MPV Ertiga would remain intact, however further details were kept under covers.

The Ertiga has the dimensions of a standard mini MPV with 4.2 metre length and 2740 mm wheelbase. Light weight materials contribute majorly in giving the interiors a more luxury look.

“The Ertiga won’t have Innova-levels of space, but middle and last-row occupants will get roof-mounted AC vents from improved cooling. Engine options will include the popular 1.3 litre Variable Geometry Turbo diesel from the SX4. Suzuki will also debut its latest and largest engine from the K-series family on the MPV called the K14, this 1372 cc VVT engine delivers a decent 95 bhp,” AutoCar said.

With a birth rate still very high compared to the standard of the old industrial countries, India has a very young population, with most families consisting of more than five members. Reason enough for the first local manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki, to develop a new compact MPV 7 seater.

With a modern although almost trivial, the Ertiga has nothing to do with the poverty of Maruti EECO (aka Suzuki Every +) or the Omni, only modernized version of the Suzuki Carry, known at one time We as the GME Rascal in the late 80’s. According to its manufacturer, the Ertiga “is distinguished by its lightweight and compact body and small engines.” It is launched in India with the aim to exploit a new market, the compact MPV with three rows of seats will look to thrive like the Toyota Innova and Mahindra Xylo local.

Recognizing the buying power of customers, Maruti Suzuki was required to contain costs by borrowing a maximum of component models of its current range. Ertiga betrays its origins: it is based on the platform Swift, with a wheelbase lengthened course increased from 2.43 m to 2.74 m. We also recognize its headlamps.
