    Great…… Yesterday I visited Sai Service, Pune. And the guys were telling me that the zxi varient has got the “Kenwood” music system. ha ha ha ha They also told me that New zxi has got 15″ alloy wheels. Can you confirm this? And thanks for the info.

    it’s a great review. sounds honest and elaborate. Nice pictures too. Cheers!

  5. ANP says:

    yeah I have a doubt on the Audio system as the manager there told me that it is a Kenwood . But when I saw the system it was mentioned “Nippon Audiotronix” . I went through google and noticed that “Nippon Audiotronix” seems to be the sole provider of Kenwood systems in India . So can anyone clarify if nippon audiotronix = kenwood + integrated cricutry of car audio. Thanks in Advance

  6. arun says:

    Yes Kenwood = nippon audiotronix

  7. Manjith says:

    too good a review.. exactly wat i was looking for..

  8. sunil says:

    Nippon Audiotronix imports/ assembles the KENWOOD brand in India. Their products are very good. I have been a satisfied user for many years.

  9. robin says:

  11. Apurva Mirajkar says:

    Have they Tweak around with the engine…The Refresh Swift feels lot more responsive to old version… The old one took its own sweet time to build up speed but the new was more responsive. Any Ideas, Views, Comments on that point…

  12. kkk says:

    Does the Swift VDI has integrated audio system. I know that the audio controls mounted on the steering is available only in ZXI, but does the new Swift VDI still comes with the old ugly looking audio system, isn’t it merged along with the dashboard as shown in the pics above? Please advise.

  13. DK says:

    I am shocked by the knowledge of the Maruti dealers about the components of their own car & also about Nippon Audiotronix. On visiting the Kenwood site I found that Nippon is a local Indian company which is the local distributor of Kenwood for India. Moreover, the Swift audio is in no way a Kenwood product.
