Maruti Suzuki's position in manufacturing compact cars is well known. With this popularity and expertise, this company launched its Swift hatchback in early 2005 and it became a prominent player in the premium hatchback segment. The Swift just shattered all the records and emerged as one of the best selling hatchbacks in the Indian automotive scene. But the car was showing its age and had to compete with new contenders in the market with better styling, handling and loads of new features. The engineers however, did not want to sacrifice the peppiness the old Swift packed and indeed, this new one has lost none of it. The Swift is available in 7 variants, 4 petrol ones and 3 diesel ones. The choice of colours for the Maruti Suzuki Swift includes Mysterious Violet, Glistening Grey, Fire Red, Silky Silver, Pearl Arctic White and Granite Grey.
