This premium hatchback will be slotting below the Baleno, but will be placed at the Maruti Suzuki Arena showrooms. This will also be the most expensive hatchback available from Maruti Suzuki out of the Nexa branding.

Based on the 5th generation Heartect platform, the new Swift is bigger & bolder in every sense.
