Thoughts About The New Maruti Swift 2018 Variants
Maruti Suzuki should have offered the AMT gearbox in the top-end Z+ variant, but that would have resulted in Rs 50,000 more for the AMT option, which will take the highest price close Rs 9 lakh. Maruti cannot afford to price the new Swift close to Rs 9 lakh for the top-spec variant which would have affected its Baleno sales.
That said, the best variant of the new Maruti Swift is arguably the Z variant which has a host of features along with the option of the AMT gearbox. For those of you looking to buy the new Swift with LED projector headlamps, touchscreen infotainment system, the top-spec Z+ variant is the best choice. Those looking to compromise on the look of the vehicle but want an AMT option; the V variant is the best among all the trims of the new Swift, especially the diesel model which offers a mileage of 28.4kmpl.
