Maruti Swift has been around in our market for aeons and continues to be among the top sellers.
This Maruti Swift is uniquely capable of being driven in deep snow. While you wouldn’t associate the Indian version of the Swift with conquering such challenges, the international model does come with a few modifications. The Suzuki Swift is sold in various markets with varied powertrains and hardware. Judging by the description of this video, this one looks like the Russian model. Let us take a look at how our beloved Swift is able to glide through deep snow.

Maruti Swift Driven on Snow
The video has been posted on YouTube by SVCh76. Swift is seen in quite deep snow. However, the driver seems unafraid of manoeuvering it through the snow. He drives it in a straight line at the beginning of the video. Then, he decides to make a U-turn on a rather narrow road. However, there is no fear of the hatchback losing traction. It is because this variant of the Swift comes equipped with a 4×4 drivetrain. That becomes evident once you see the performance of the vehicle in the snow.

He is able to reverse and turn the car around without breaking a sweat. Needless to say, this can only be achieved if the car has a 4×4 configuration. Since there is no slope either, the hatchback doesn’t struggle even a bit and easily U-turns. However, we mustn’t attempt such stunts with the Swift that we have in our market. It will invariably lead to undesirable consequences.
