Maruti Suzuki is now offering a crucial safety feature – tyre pressure monitoring system – as an official accessory. It’s priced at Rs. 12,990.

With already over a lakh bookings in just about three months, the latest hatchback from Maruti Suzuki is well on its way to becoming the most successful generation of the Swift ever.
