[Updated] 2015 Maruti Swift gets push button start, electrically folding mirrors

Posted on: Oct 23, 2014 - 1:15pm IST

ABS is standard from the mid-level variants. 

The 2015 Maruti Swift doesn’t see more than a couple of cosmetic changes. In fact for India, the refreshed Swift will not get LED daytime running lights, which is the signature touch of the updated car globally. Maruti have skimped on this feature, but have decided to give its best selling premium hatchback extra safety and convenience features instead.

Refreshed Maruti Swift ESP
Though spyshots show ESP and cruise control icons on the top-end variant, they could just be dummies.

These spyshots from GaadiWaadi.com claim that the top-end ZXi/ZDi (top-end petrol/top-end diesel) trims of the car will get ESP (Electronic Stability Program), a first for the Swift in India. Until now, the only hatchback (from a non-premium manufacturer) to sport this feature in India was the VW Polo GT TSI. Note that these could be dummy icons with illumination enabled on ignition.

The mid-level VXi and VDi variants will come with ABS as standard. ABS was an optional feature on these trims in the previous gen Swift, but to keep pace with the industry (VW and Toyota offer airbags as standard across all variants of the Polo and Etios Liva respectively), Maruti seems to have reacted by making it standard from the mid variants.

Refreshed Maruti Swift wing mirrors
The mid- and top-end trims get electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors.

The mid- and top-end variants will also get electrically adjustable and foldable wing mirrors, and the ZXi/ZDi variants gets keyless entry with push-button start, reverse parking sensors and Bluetooth.

    The cruise control is an useless feature even in advanced countries as few people use them after few days of ownership. It is of some use, if it comes with laser range estimator and breaking system.

    ABS was never been a optional feature on mid variant. Please correct me if I’m wrong and if not please refrain from giving wrong information!

    1. Hello Ganesh, ABS was optional on the V variants on the previous generation.

        The current swift does not offer ABS as option on V trim. It is available only on Z trim. Yes, it was optional in previous generation but the article doesn’t mention it. Users will always make comparisons with the current one.

      2. Hello Joy, this has been stated in the story now. It sounds better with your suggestion included.

    There are various cars in India which have these icons on their dashboard because they are also being exported to other countries from India. These features are neglected in Indian versions. I hope this isn’t just another car with these icons in the dashboard but of no use.

      Was wondering which all cars offer push button start options in the sub 10 lac segment. Many thanks…
