MARUTI SWIFT ZXi-COOL AND SPORTY

My experience driving the swift to kerala was exciting.We were five people in the car and the boot was full.Let me tell you that if you want to enjoy the full potential of this wonderfull car,then better drive alone.The performance of the car was blunted because the car was overloaded.The swift petrol comes with an enthusiastic 1.3 litre engine with 87 bhp of power.The torque is 113Nm(If you want big torque then buy the diesel swift which gives 190Nm of torque).Economy is fine on the highway returning close to 14kpl.The claimed top speed is 174kph.My personal top speed was 130kph.The car is stable at those speeds but after 130kph,the car is a little rattle prone.The equipment list is good for the top end variant like there is ABS,airbags and aaloys as standard.The interior plastics feel cheap but the bulid is solid.The light clutch and precise power steering make the ride more pleasurable.The boot is not very big but reasonably spacious.The price is aound Rs.5 lakh for the zxi variant.Swift is a pracrical choice and reliability is guaranteed .
