The Swift petrol ZXI+ is priced at Rs. 7.76 lakhs while the diesel ZDI+ automatic variant is priced at Rs. 8.76 lakhs.
Mr R. S. Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India, said,
“Swift has always scored high on customers’ expectations. With the latest evolution, the all-new Swift has reached the next level of customer delight. AGS has been very well appreciated by our Swift customers. We had customer feedback seeking convenience of AGS in the high-selling top-end variants. Accordingly, we are now offering AGS in the top-end ZXI+ and ZDI+ variants. This will further strengthen the brand Swift and enhance the popularity of Maruti Suzuki’s acclaimed two-pedal technology.”
