Not Impressive list, i believe, but still acceptable unless you are more into making your car more stylish
As compared to other Suzuki cars, Suzuki has worked alot to improve this sector, Suzuki introduced Four wheel Emergency, ABS Braking system, further more the body is somewhat solid also it comes with auto locking
so the owner have ease, not to check every door for locking.
Though, Suzuki took a great step and introduced these safety measures but still, one of the popular Airbags are still missing, though it is a downpoint but as in overall, still much better as compared to other suzuki cars
"First suzuki car with comfort in Pakistan, The car has all features of good car manufactured in Pakistan"
"I have been totally satisfied with the drive and i can say that the drive is truly awesome, the car looks small from the outside but despite my expectations, it was big from inside.I have a corolla 2006 and the front seats are as big and spacious as compared to my corolla, there's no engine sound while driving the car as compared to all suzuki cars.. So Thumbs up!"
"Better then all current suzuki cars"
"The car is tagged for Rs. 999000 Plus Rs. 90000 as premium or wait for 3 months.
This is totally un-acceptable that they have booked hundreds of them, I am not going to buy that at all. There's very little leg room for the back seat passengers, too much of plastics here and there. Below average interior. Extertior is good, no doubt with 15" Alloys and Bridgestone Tires and ABS.
If I have to buy this car, I would like the price tag should be somthing around Rs.800,000 to Rs. 850,000"
"For me, Interior quality according to me is very poor.The plastic used looks of very cheap quality and the car overall just has a very plastic look inside it. The price tag can not justify it at all.
As someone above said, it should be around 850000 that's a good price considering the company name it has on it. SUZUKI"
To me, the biggest drawback was the absence of Airbags. Another draw back is, that in the same price range as of Suzuki swift, you can buy Toyota Vitz or Yaris which is still much better then this.
Also, I think that if the Suzuki came with a car to compete with 1300cc category, then it should be sedan. Also i have heard many people complaining about the interior as well the poor audio system
As of 3rd February, 2010,
The Price of Suzuki Swift 1.3L in Pakistan is, Rs. 999,000/- while in India it ranges from Rs.4,00,000 to Rs.5,00,000 (Due to city by city different prices, we can't quote the exact price)

(We gave this ranking, because we believe, that the Honda City, Suzuki Liana, and Toyota XLI/GLi will come, if you only increase 200k to 300K the amount)
Firstly, we would like to appreciate the Suzuki's move, terming it as one of the best car ever produced in Pakistan by Suzuki, it outnumber in features all the previous Suzuki cars, with the addition of ABS , Sporty Look, Alloy Rims, Power Steering and other features, definitely this car has made a competition with other cars upto 1300cc Category. Though Still, it miss some of necessary safety measures as Airbags, further on, the interior can be improved a bit but overall it's a nice package to opt for, keeping in mind the increase of sales in small cars, we would definitely say,
"It's a Good choice to opt for "
Over-All Ratings: (7.5/10) - Recommended
Lastly i would like to request everyone to let us know, how the review was and what is ur personal opinion and thought about this car :-)
