Best used Maruti Swift hatchbacks for under 4 lakhs In Pune from CarToq True Price

Into its 3rd generation, Swift hatched the premium hatchback segment when it arrived in 2005. It’s cute and sporty looks combined with peppy engines, smooth gearbox and direct steering make it popular with, well almost anyone and everyone. The Swift currently costs Rs 5.14 Lakhs – 8.89 Lakhs on the new car market. A used Swift buyer is a lot like a new Swift buyer in that s/he wants a stylish, peppy car without having to spend a lot of money. It’s also popular with those who like to modify their cars. The VXi and VDi variant offer best value but if you find a ZXi/ZDi for not much more then go for it. This is particularly true if you are buying the previous generation Swift as only Z models came with airbags.

A Swift used car price averages around Rs 3,80,000 in Pune with the lower end price tending to be around Rs 3,62,500 and the upper end price tending to be around Rs 3,99,500. So, what should you go for? Which are the best used car Swift deals available on the market under Rs. 4 lakh?

Recommendation #1: Maruti Suzuki Swift LDi BS IV

Best used Maruti Swift hatchbacks for under 4 lakhs In Pune from CarToq True Price

Year: 2011 / Kms Driven: 80,700 / List Price: Rs 300,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 506,938

This entry, which comes at a discount of 41% to its original price is 8 years old and has done 80,700 Kms. This diesel-powered, SWIFT is currently with its first owner.  You will still be able to buy a 2nd gen but do remember that the rear seat space is tight and the boot is tiny. But if you are single or a small family, you could get some very good deals if you go five and more years back. While it should run trouble-free for at least 1 lakh km, we still recommend that you have the car inspected by a competent mechanic with a particular focus on suspension. The Maruti Swift has largely been a trouble free car, even in the long run. That said, a few models made in Oct’13 had problems with the steering column and the batch in 2014 had issues in terms of fuel leakage into the cabin. Cars with high odo reading must be checked for proper working of the suspension. If you are opting for a diesel one, make sure the exhaust doesn’t throw out black smoke under acceleration.
