In February 2018, the famous Swift hatchback will be replaced by its new model, which featured a new design, technology and platform. Therefore, here we bring you a comparison between the Old Swift and the third generation Swift 2018.

Exterior Design:

The new Maruti Suzuki Swift 2018 is more sportier and stylish as compared to the old model. The front of the car has got the new hexagonal grille, which imparts a sporty character. While the headlamps look a lot sleeker and the top variant will feature a projector setup and LED DRLs. The top-end variant has also got sporty dual-tone alloy wheels.

Interior Design:

The interior of new Swift looks more premium and upmarket. This car features a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity. While the rectangular AC vents have been replaced by the round once. The wheelbase also looks more premium than ever, due to the round boss and a flat bottom. In addition to that, the twin-pod speedo console is another highlight in new Maruti Suzuki Swift that also features a larger, high res Multi-Information Display (MID).

Comforting Level:

According to Maruti Suzuki, two people of 6 feet height can comfortably sit in the front and at the back, at the same time when compared to old Swift. There is 28 % increase in boot space, which is quite surprising for all of us. The frontal visibility is good and the back side of this new car has opened up a lot more space, which was lacking in the old Swift.
