Maruti’s constant push to update the Swift has managed the car to stay in the top spots. Therefore, now Maruti is planning a new generation update on the Swift. What could it be like? What can we expect in the New Maruti Swift? Read it all in this article.
New Maruti Swift – Design updates
The new generation has been spotted many times in a camouflaged look. The new generation is expected to go through some major design updates. The 4th gen model will get a new design for the headlamps as well as the taillamps. We could also see a new design for the front as well as rear bumpers. Swift protruding its curvy design, will continue to have a sporty appearance. Along with that, a major update would be the placement of door handles on the door itself rather than being on the ‘C’ pillar.
New Maruti Swift – Specifications
It is highly likely that Maruti will continue the 1.2-litre Dual Jet engine in the Swift. The engine is capable of making 89bhp & 113Nm of torque. Will it get the strong hybrid setup that the Grand Vitara gets to increase mileage and efficiency? We will have to wait and find out. Moreover, you could get similar gearbox options like a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. The driving dynamics of the Swift would remain agile and we could also expect an improvement in terms of the HEARTECT platform for improved safety and drivability.
New Maruti Swift – Features
Maruti is scoring high when it comes to features. The brand has started to pay attention, especially to the equipment list of their cars. The new car is expected to get similar to the Baleno that includes Heads Up Display, 360-degree camera parking, a 9-inch infotainment system with connected car tech, and more. In addition, it could also add up some safety features to improve its safety rating. The current selling car only has a 2 star from G-NCAP.
New Maruti Swift – Launch
Recently, Maruti launched the Swift CNG in the market to diversify its CNG portfolio. The rumors of Swift Sport are also floating around, touting a peppy engine. So, the new Maruti Swift could make its way to India somewhere next year. Moreover, we can expect the car to be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2023 or later in the first half of next year.
