On the Car and Bike Show Facebook page, enthusiast Chirag Madan has uploaded an image of the new Maruti Swift on Indian soil donning not an inch of camouflage. The location of capture is yet to be ascertained. Wherever that maybe, it tells us the waiting will soon be over. The improved Swift, introduced last year in Europe, will carry over the currently serving powertrains. Variable valve timing is anticipated on the petrol variant in a hope to improve performance.
Several readers have written to us stating select dealerships are accepting deposits to pre-book the new Swift. While the company hasn't spoken about the new Swift and nothing official is , many inquiries are said to be received in dealerships across the country. The new Swift could demand waiting period stretching into months if you are slow in reacting. IAB's received at least 50 emails in the past one month regarding the new Swift' launch date and specifications. The Swift is set to play 2011' Ford Figo.
As Toyota prepares the Liva for a June-end launch, we can't wait to see how customers react upon its introduction. Which way will they go? Comparisons will be drawn, and the real advantage for Maruti is the diesel engine. If they introduce both engines at launch, the Swift is likely to accelerate past the Liva as upward revisions in petrol prices have left the car buying population miffed. Many customers will switch to diesel and since the Liva diesel won't appear until next year, the Swift's job will be easier.
