Back in May 2005, Maruti Suzuki launched the Swift hatchback in Nepal, and the rest, as they say, is history. The Swift was the game changer in our thriving car market back then. It looked quirky and showed us that a hatchback can be practical and fun at the same time. It also won the coveted Car of the Year Award (ICOTY) in 2012. Now the Swift is in its third generation and still is the segment leader selling twice the number of units each month compared to its direct rivals in the B-segment. After having the all-new Swift with us for quite some time now, and to commemorate its 13th anniversary in the country, we decided to put Nepal’s favourite hatchback through our five labours.
