    The biggest change to the 2021 Swift is under the hood.

The new unit also brings a start/stop function that helps to further boost fuel economy. The updated Swift now has an ARAI figure of 23.20kpl in the manual version and 23.76kpl in the automatic version, as against the outgoing car’s 21.21kpl.

    Gearbox options include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT unit.
