    It is the same swift which Suzuki is already selling in all Gulf Countries . This was there long back . Now it has been launched in India to keep the Fizz for SWIFT on . I think maruti should do something about the waiting period on Swift . Since in launch in 2004 itstill cannot get out of waiting period while its other models are piling in factories and Showrooms .

    I would prefer Jazz for this..With this size of boot we can hardly go for a weekend trip using this car..

    Yet another revolution in the hatchback space. Swift is a good allrounder thats why it rocks the sales chart.

    Killer pricing by Maruti. 20-30K hike expected post the introductory pricing. So book now and get your car delivered next festive season?

    VDi/VXi + ABS will be missed
