Swift 2018 is the most awaited car of the year and we have already driven it a few days back in Lonavala. The new Maruti Swift gets a completely new front fascia and it gets projector headlamps with LED DRLs (Daytime Running Lights). The car has also grown in dimensions and hence, it is now more spacious on the inside. In order to be precise, the rear end of the car features appealing C-Shaped tail lights along with a new boot lid that looks sharper than before.

Looking at the rear bumper will remind you of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The 2018 Maruti Swift is essentially built on the company’s new Heartect platform and it is the same platform on which the Baleno also comes based. Thanks to the use of this platform only, the new Swift’s length has dipped by 10 mm to 3850 mm while the width has seen an increment by 40 mm to 1695 mm.
