Maruti Suzuki set a world record and has entered the Guinness Book of Records by organizing the largest car procession of its popular hatchback Swift in Gurgaon. Swift’s sales crossed 4.5 lakh units since its launch in 2005.
The company said, “Maruti Suzuki has set a new Guinness Book of World Records by bringing together 342 Swift cars at a car parade in Gurgaon”.
Similar parades were also held in Mumbai and Sriperumbudur. Maruti Suzuki executive officer for sales and marketing Mayank Pareek revealed that the world record that has been achieved is an indication of Swift’s growing popularity and that the record is a victory for all the 4.5 lakh Swift owners.
The 2011 Swift will be a little bigger than the existing model and will be equipped with new engines ranging from 1.2 liter and 1.4 liter direct injected petrols to a 1.5 liter K Series petrol engine. It would have higher fuel efficiency.
The 1.5 Liter K-Series engine will be able to produce 100 Bhp. Though, there has been no verification from Maruti Suzuki yet about new engines for the 2011 Maruti Suzuki Swift. The 2011 Swift will feature sporty interiors with a new dashboard layout. It would have a steering wheel, with a lot of mounted controls.
