Maruti's Swift now also comes with the 1.3-litre multi-jet common rail diesel with a super compact turbocharger. Styling is one of the inherent strengths and the interior also has a sporty flavour. But the dark upholstery and small glass area at the rear, tend to make things a little claustrophobic. The diesel engine is amazingly fuel-efficient, refined and also quite quick. The petrol is no laggard either and also returns good fuel economy. It is reasonably nimble and the brakes have good bite, with ABS being available.
