Certain dealers of Maruti-Suzuki have started accepting bookings for the refreshed Maruti Swift, which according to them launches by the end of this month. The booking amount is INR 10,000.
Speaking to a few dealers in South India, Indian Autos Blog learns that demo vehicles are currently in the process of arriving at showrooms, and that customer deliveries will start as early as next month.
The Swift gets minor cosmetic changes, most of which are seen only on the top-end ZXi/ZDi variants. The front bumper gets silver L-shaped elements for the foglight enclosures, while the alloy wheel pattern features a slight revision. On certain variants, chrome door handles will be offered as well.
