India-spec Maruti Swift details revealed

    Published On Jan 18, 2018 01:40:00 PM


    Officially open for booking at Rs 11,000; AMT to be offered on both petrol and diesel variants; engines carried over from outgoing car.

    Maruti Suzuki has officially revealed details of the India-spec new Swift. Here, the car will be offered in a total of 12 variants, and will be powered by the same 1.2-litre K12 petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine as seen on the outgoing car.

    There will be a total of six variants available with each engine option – LXi/LDi, VXi/VDi, ZXi/ZDi and ZXi+/ZDi+ with a five-speed manual, with the automated manual transmission option being offered only on the VXi/VDi and ZXi/ZDi trims.

    Based on the Heartect platform, the new Swift is 40mm wider, has a 20mm longer wheelbase and gets an added 24mm of headroom. But despite the increase in size, it's now up to 40kg lighter, which will likely have a positive effect on all aspects of performance. At 265 litres, the new Swift also has 58 litres more boot space from the current car.

    Engines have been carried over from the outgoing car, so you get the 1.2-litre, 83hp/113Nm petrol and the 1.3-litre, 75hp/190Nm diesel.

    A SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility will be offered on the higher trims, along with projector headlamps with LED DRLs, two-tone alloy wheels, voice recognition, Bluetooth audio streaming, in-built navigation and a reverse camera. Two airbags and ABS will be standard across the range.

    The new Swift will be offered in six paint options – orange, blue, red, white, silver and grey. You can book one starting today by making an initial payment of Rs 11,000.
