1.7 million units- yes you heard it right. More than a million units is what Swift has been able to achieve since its launch 12 years back in India as a hatchback for the middle class with features which were found only in high-end cars at that time. Swift is one such car whose launch was a moment of euphoria not only for the buyers but also for the makers – the Maruti Suzuki, as it was the first premium hatchback to be manufactured in India. Having been popular in the masses for over a decade now, the popularity and craze for this hatchback are still at peaks. Keeping the aspirations of the buyers, the makers are coming with a third-generation model which will be launched in the upcoming Auto Expo 2018 in Delhi.
