Maruti Suzuki Swift
The Maruti Suzuki Swift showed decent frontal impact with good protection offered to the driver's and passenger's head and neck but driver's chest showed weak protection and passenger's chest showed adequate protection. However, driver's knees and passenger's right knee showed marginal protection as they can impact with dangerous structures behind the fascia.
