The Maruti Suzuki Swift hit the Indian roads on Wednesday (May 25). As part of Suzuki's global strategy, the Swift will be manufactured in India, Hungary, Japan, and China.

The compact car will have a 1.3 litre gasoline engine, and come in three variants. It will also have some luxury features in the top-end model.

The low end model will cost Rs 3.87 lakh (Rs 387,000).

At the top of the tailgate, the roof's trailing edge is shaped as a spoiler -- a design that not only looks sporty and enhances aerodynamic performance but also realises a valuable 1 kg weight saving over a conventional bolt-on plastic spoiler.

The overall effect, which can be further enhanced by optional 15-inch, five-spoke aluminium wheels, is a look of stability and a sense that the new Swift is packed with energy and ready to deliver a dynamic drive.
