5 Impressive Videos of Maruti Swift
Maruti Swift vs Hyundai Venue
This first drag race is between the Swift petrol and Venue diesel. The Venue makes 100 hp and 240 Nm. It weighs more than the Swift, which is why the YouTuber decides to keep the AC ON in the Swift while the AC in the Venue is OFF. However, it is clear that from the beginning to the end, the Swift simply doesn’t let the Venue come anywhere close.

However, the gap didn’t last long as the Swift trounced the mid-size sedan with its brisk acceleration and the Verna was not able to catch the Swift for the rest of the race.

Maruti Swift vs Hyundai i20 N-Line
The i20 N-Line is the sporty version of the regular i20 with altered mechanical components. It is the hot-hatch of the Hyundai that comes with a 1.0-litre direct-injection turbo petrol engine making 120 PS and 172 Nm mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. But the way it performed in this drag race was quite disappointing. The Swift was effortlessly able to conquer the N-Line in every single attempt.

Maruti Swift vs Mahindra Scorpio
This might seem a bit weird to race a hatchback against an SUV that is primarily off-road focused. However, their 0-100 km/h acceleration times are quite similar making it a logical race. Interestingly, among all these races, the diesel version of the Scorpio was able to compete respectably with its 140 hp and 320 Nm 2.2 mHawk engine.
These 5 videos are real-life examples of how well the Maruti Swift performs in the drag races. The reason can be attributed to its high power-to-weight ratio with the hatchback tipping the scales at below 900 kg.
