    Yes the ZDI variant with a whopping 7.5 lakhs (As read in some magazine). Why would someone buy swift @ this price ?

    Oh my god. I never knew this. I should sell my Punto and be the 40001 customer to pre book swift.
    Maruti is indeed marketing the swift in wonderful way. I even saw online launch on Facebook.

    Here is my lighthearted take on the items in the list:

    1. sensational looking - where were you for the last six years?
    2. spacious hatch in its class - huh? did I miss Indica?
    3. most powerful engine - its got 90HP?
    4. highest fuel efficiency - why not when it is feather weight.
    5. Lowest running cost - it doesn't run, it flies, so naturally...
    6. Best resale - so you buy it for trading?
    7. highest potential for modification - It is almost awful in its stock form so people innovate
    8. best in class GC - why not when you have very short wheelbase
    9. AC cooling better than that of Mercedes E-class - brr...
    10. Superb seats with sporty contours - yeah you definitely need them to avoid flying off..
    11. best power to weight ratio - see answer to number 4
    12. best braking in the hatchback class - huh?
    13. Aerodynamic design - do you know what you are talking about?
    14. class leading rear legroom - may be but not best in class right?
    15. small enough to fit in the tightest of parking space - that's a good thing right?
    16. sophisticated JAPANESE styling - gulp!
    17. never seen before build quality - sure now we know why all the existing swifts rattle.
    18. Fastest car in its category - see answer to number 11
    19. only car in india with a plastic fuel tank - that's a good one
    20. 40000 already booked - that's another good one...
    21. best selling hatch in its segment for the past 6 years - naturally as we had so little choice over the years...



    Gurjinder, make that "Kick Me! - I Love Swift" :evilsmile

    Out of 40000 at least one could understand what it does converts to , in reality.

    Brakes in Rain vs when fully loaded..!!

    one of an knowledgeable elderly person known to me mentioned when somebody suggested to buy swift "Use and throw plastic car..huh".

    I tried putting this question to our more knowledgeable leading indian forum but no body seems to be replying to anything these days .. every body busy doing donuts around new swift ..
