2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift | First Drive Review

This is a car you can buy if you don’t want a compact SUV


Suspension, frugal engine, interiors


Music system, infotainment UI


The first thing that you will notice is the clamshell bonnet-style design. It almost feels like the car is wearing a cap on its head. It is a little weird to look at first. But the design grows on you especially if you pair it with the LED headlamps and how the bonnet line extends to the side of the car to become a very prominent shoulder line. The side of the car is kept clean but the two-tone paint job along with the aggressive shoulder line does make the car pop out. The 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels do look adequate, however the bigger options could have accentuated the appeal. Once you move the rear, that is a classic Swift rear end. I would like to use the word ass, but I want to be classy about it. All the design elements are classic Swift, but the rear lights now feature fancy stuff that will surely set it apart from the previous generations. All in all, it is a modern car while being not too shouty or not too subtle.
