India’s largest car maker, Maruti Suzuki has recently launched the best-selling Swift hatchback in an all-new Limited Edition which makes the sporty hatchback even sportier! But what makes the new Swift Limited Edition stand apart from the lakhs of Swift hatchbacks that are currently on Indian roads? Well, stay with us as we give you the lowdown on what’s so cool about the latest Swift in town.
Style is its first name
The Maruti Suzuki Swift Limited Edition comes fitted with a host of style enhancements that elevate its sporty looks to the next level. For starters, you have the low slung stance of the car achieved with bumper inserts for the front and rear bumpers, and skirting across the flanks of the car. Maruti Suzuki’s designers have also added an all-black finish to the front grille of the Swift Limited Edition, making the car look wider, and of course, sportier.
Then there’s the roof spoiler that sits atop the hatch lid of the Swift Limited Edition, signalling the car’s sporty intent. Finally, the designers have gone the extra mile to give the sporty new Swift Limited Edition a practical touch by offering door visors for all four doors of the car. These visors will give the Swift Limited Edition a modicum of wind and rain protection while also allowing fresh air into the car.
Peppy performance that thrills
Maruti Suzuki Swift Limited Edition is powered by the tried and tested 1.2 liter-4 cylinder K-Series petrol engine. Known for its impeccable refinement and punchy power delivery, the rev-happy engine makes maximum power of61kW @ 6000rpm and peak torque of 113Nm @ 4200rpm
The Swift Limited Edition is offered with two gearbox options: a slick-shifting 5 speed manual for those who like shifting gears on their own, and a 5 speed automatic (AMT) for those who want the sheer convenience of an automatic. The best part about the Swift AMT is the fact that there is no reduction in fuel efficiency despite the added convenience. It can’t get cooler than this.
As safe as it’s swift
Every Swift sold currently is built on Maruti Suzuki’s HEARTECT platform, a platform that uses high strength steel extensively to achieve the twin objectives of high safety levels and terrific dynamics. The HEARTECT body of the Swift is designed to distribute impact across the monocoque structure, ensuring great safety for the occupants of the car. The high strength steel used in the HEARTECT body also gives the Swift great stiffness and rigidity – two factors that also make it such a sporty handling car. More smiles per mile, guaranteed. Other key safety features on the Swift include driver and passenger airbags, Anti-lock Braking System, reverse parking sensors, speed alerts and seat belt reminder.
#1 across 3 generations!
The first Swift was launched in India during 2005 and right from the word go, the hatchback has been a bestseller. 15 years and two generations later, the 3rd generation Swift continues to be a bestseller that runs rings around every other hatchback in its segment. In fact, the Maruti Suzuki Swift has been India’s bestselling car for the last 4 consecutive months. This may be unprecedented for other cars but not the Swift.
The sheer popularity of Maruti Suzuki Swift isn’t restricted to those who own it; even the motoring press has handed out not one, not two, but three Indian Car of the Year (iCOTY) awards to all three generations of the Swift (in 2006, 2012 and 2018), underlining how incredibly well engineered the car is. You just can’t go wrong with the Swift, and the Limited Edition model takes things to a stylish new level.
