Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Preview-Upcoming Cars


Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift

India’s hottest hatchback has been on sale in its current avatar since 2011 and will soon get a facelift. Yes, we are talking about the Maruti Suzuki Swift which got a host of cosmetic updates in Europe and Japan last year and will make its way to India by the end of this year. Suzuki has stuck with the formula of continuity and has not changed anything in terms of overall design.

The Maruti Suzuki Swift in terms of external design remains the same as before but now gets new L-shaped LEDs upfront and silver detailing on the lower front bumper. Apart from that, Suzuki is also offering a high mounted LED stoplight. The Japanese automaker has also put out a new Boost Blue Metallic colour and for non-alloy wheel versions, the wheel covers are different. However, for the Indian market, we expect that this will only be offered with the VXi, VDi and the ZXi and ZDi variant.

The interiors of the Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift will now feature cruise control, keyless entry and a button start. Since the top spec version of the car already gets features like climate control, faux leather seats and a music system with Bluetooth, AUX and iPod compatibility we expect that they will continue even in the facelifted models too. However, we expect that the India spec car may now get rear AC vents and maybe electric seat adjustment in a bid to update the feature list and keep it on par with the competitors.

Engines and gearbox
The facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift is expected to continue with the 1.2-litre petrol mill and the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine. The former produces 85bhp/114Nm while the latter does 74bhp/190Nm. Both engines are mated to a five-speed manual. We expect that Maruti Suzuki may offer the AMT for the Swift making it a highly competitive offering in the segment. There is also a small possibility that Maruti Suzuki may bring the five-door Swift Sport in a limited production run when it launches the regular car.
