My Baby….Maruti Suzuki Swift


A car that I dreamed of having since a long time. And finally, the dream did come true. Had to wait 5 long months after booking to get my Sweetheart.
Obviously, it is very costly for a Small-Car. But, somehow the looks and the feel impressed me a lot.  Saw it first a year and half back when it was first released by SUZUKI in the Geneva Car show in Europe. And it sure became an instant hit.  And the time it was released in India ie., 1st week of June’05. When I first went for the test-drive, man, there was such a big queue.  The waiting list for test-drive was 210.  When I booked the car, initially was told that it would come by next year. But then, for my luck, it came earlier.

Surely, it beats all the competition from GETZ-HYUNDAI in terms of Power, Speed, Mileage, Pickup and most importantly, LOOKS.  Now for the color, its an obvious choice…….REEEDDDDD 🙂

About Swift

The Suzuki Swift began in 1985 as a marketing and manufacturing rebadge of the Suzuki Cultus, a supermini (or subcompact) manufactured and marketed worldwide across three generations and four body configurations—three-door hatchback, four-door sedan, five-door hatchback and two-door convertible—and using the Suzuki G engine family.

The Swift was marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the Cultus and elsewhere as the Suzuki Swift, Suzuki Forsa, Suzuki Jazz, Chevrolet Swift, Chevrolet Sprint and Sprint Metro, Geo and Chevrolet Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Maruti 1000, Holden Barina and Subaru Justy. Versions of the second generation Cultus were also produced until 2007 in India and the car remains in production today in Pakistan and China. For more information on the initial versions of the Swift, see: Suzuki Cultus and Geo Metro. The version of Maruti Suzuki launch in India happened in May 2017.
