The limited edition Swift Deca gets additional equipment along with a number of cosmetic updates. It’s only available with VXi and VDi variants of the car.
Maruti Suzuki has launched a limited edition version of the Swift hatchback. Billed as the Swift Deca, the new version will be offered only with the VXi and VDi trims of the hatchback. Highlights of the ‘Deca’ include a new touchscreen multimedia system, exterior body kit and updated seat upholstery along with a number of other ‘sporty’ add-ons.
As per Maruti, the newly launched version ‘’celebrates the charm of football’s most flamboyant players with number 10’’. While the relation between the two may be a bit hard to fathom here, the simple fact is that the Deca edition mainly gets a lot of added features and equipment over the regular car. For example, it now comes equipped with a Sony multimedia touchscreen system with Bluetooth connectivity, exterior body skirting and spoiler, ‘sporty’ seat covers, steering wheel cover, reverse parking assist with camera, some new decals, front arm rest, ambient lighting, etc.
Maruti further claims that the Deca edition comes with benefits worth over Rs 18,000. Mechanically, the car remains unchanged. That means the diesel version comes with the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre unit while powering the petrol version is the 1.2-litre mill. Both come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Swift Deca Edition will be offered in two shades – Bright Red and Orange. The diesel Swift Deca VDi is priced at Rs 6.86 lakh while the petrol Deca VXi gets a price tag of Rs 5.94 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi).
Commenting on the launch, Mr. R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki, said, “Swift is a sporty, stylish and fun to drive car. Since its launch, it has been one of the best performers in our portfolio and helped us strengthen leadership in premium hatchback segment. Over the years, the Swift has evolved in features, looks and technology, often defining the changes in aspiration and preferences of Indian car customers. Swift Deca carries forward the sportiness and performance quotient associated with the brand.”
