Commenting on the launch of the Maruti Suzuki Swift special edition, MSI Executive Director (Marketing and Sales) Shashank Srivastava said, “Since launch, with its disruptive looks and peppy performance, Swift has been one of the best performers in our portfolio and helped us strengthen leadership in the premium hatchback segment.”
He also said, how over the three generations, Maruti Suzuki Swift has evolved in terms of features, design and technology. The Swift has sold more than 23 lakh units since its inception in India.
Maruti Suzuki Swift competes against two models in this segment, which are Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Ford Figo. The largest carmaker of India is currently working on a facelift variant of the Swift hatchback that would come with design cues similar to the 2020 Suzuki Swift, already on sale in some markets. However, Maruti Suzuki would add some additional changes to the facelifted Swift according to the Indian tastes.
