As mentioned above the biggest change to the Swift is the new 1.2-litre petrol engine under the bonnet. The new DualJet unit, which was introduced in the Dzire last year is 7hp up over the outgoing 83hp petrol engine though torque remains the same at 113Nm. Gearbox options remain unchanged with a standard 5-speed manual and the option of a 5-speed AMT unit. The new unit also brings with it engine start-stop technology which makes the new car more efficient than the one it replaces.
