Surprise! Maruti Swift and DZire base variants get optional dual-airbags, ABS

Country’s leading passenger vehicle maker, Maruti Suzuki has announced that it will offer dual-airbags and ABS as an option across all the variants of Swift hatchback and Dzire compact sedan, even on the base ‘L’ and mid ‘V’ variants.


Earlier this month, the company started providing dual-airbags and ABS across all the variants of the WagonR and Stingray as on option. The addition of these features are expected to make the cars safer. Generally such a move is prompted by buyer demand and this is a sure sign that the Indian consumer is moving with the times.

With other manufacturers such as Ford, Volkswagen and Toyota providing safety features on their entire range of cars, Maruti too is responding by offering them on its range of cars as well, the move is expected to push other manufacturers to start offering similar safety features atleast as an option.
