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.
Since the final selling price data is not available, we estimate the actual selling prices to be 5-10% lower than this. Another tip: the most popular used car that gets bought and sold in Hyderabad in the Premium Hatchbacks category is Hyundai I20.
