New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India on Thursday launched third generation of its popular hatchback Swift at an introductory price Rs 4.99  lakh (ex-showroom).

“Brand Swift has featured among the top 5 best-selling cars in India for more than a decade. I am confident that with the all-new Swift, we will be successful to capture the imagination of our customers and offer the car which meets their demands,” said Maruti Suzuki MD and CEO Kenichi Ayukawa.

The new version has wider and has longer wheel base with more cabin space, headroom and luggage space than the outgoing generation car. The company said the all-new Swift is 40 mm wider with 20 mm longer wheel base.
