So,we booked Swift on July 3rd week.

Color-Silky Silver
Km Ran-12534 Km in 2 Years 20 Days

The Car's daily running is 250 Km/Day.Car monthly running is about 5000 to 6000/Month.Per year is about 60000 Km to 70000 Km/Year.

-I hate Maruti company, but I love Swift more than Maruti and
-Rear seat space is worse than others.My board is not comfortable with Swift.

People who want nice Fuel Efficient Diesel Car,FTD Factor.Swift is the best vehicle[clap].However,this Car will not be at our home.It will be at our company board's house.

We didn't consider any Car before buying Swift.

Tomorrow or day after tomorrow,we are taking this Car to my hometown.

Today,I checked the Average FE.It is 18.5 Km/l[clap].

Thank you Maruti for providing Swift in our Indian Market.

Our previous Company Cars before Swift are,

1.Indica Non V2-2002 till 2005-Done about 2,00,000 Km-Replaced with V2 Turbo.
2.Again Indica-But V2 Turbo-2006 till 2009-Done about 2,40,000 Km-Replaced with Vista Aura Quadrajet and
3.Vista Aura Quadrajet-2009 till 2012-Done 1,80,000 Km-Now replaced with New Swift.


We used to take our Indicas to my hometown,but,after getting our own Silver Shark in 2010,we stopped taking our company vehicles.But,when we have immediate emergency,we used to take Vista.

I m posting our company's Swift Pics.

God! Wish I had this many cars!

So, it being your company car, can you do upgrades like filter, alloys, etc?
