    Maruti Swift 2020 vs Rivals

    Although the Renault Kwid is long enough to be in the B1 segment, we’re not comparing it here because of its price and engine performance, which are comparable with A-segment cars.

    Maruti Suzuki Swift prices start from Rs. 5.19 lakh (ex-showroom) and it rivals the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Tata Tiago, Maruti Suzuki Ignis and Datsun GO in the segment. The complete price list of the petrol-powered Swift is as follows.
