The Swift is indeed the most sought after car in the country.
The all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift, which was launched in February this year, has already found one lakh homes in India, making it the fastest car in the Indian automotive history to do so. Interestingly, this record was previously held by the latest Dzire - the three-box derivative of the Swift.
Maruti Suzuki claims that the latest Swift has received overwhelming acceptance from customers across regions and age groups, complementing the success of the first and second generation Swift. Since its launch in 2005, cumulatively Swift has sold over 1.89 million units in India. Incidentally, Suzuki’s 20 millionth vehicle produced in India was also a Swift.
The new Swift sits atop Suzuki’s new Heartect platform which also underpins the Baleno, Dzire and Ignis. Engines on the Swift are carried over from the previous generations, which include a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre Fiat-sourced diesel. However, the third-gen Swift comes with AMT gearbox option for the first time.
Speaking on the occasion, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki said, “We are excited to share that the iconic Swift has yet again proven that it is the heart throb of Indians by setting a landmark of selling over 1,00,000 units in just 145 days. We would like to thank all those who chose to buy this 3rd Gen Swift, which offers both power packed performance and advanced safety. We are also grateful to our millions of Swift patrons for their continued trust in Brand Swift. This instant connect of new Swift with the customers is delightful for us and we remain committed to bring quality products with superior features in the future as well”.
