The new Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift with styling tweaks and a more powerful engine has been launched in India with an introductory price of INR 5.73 Lakh.
The mid-life cycle update of the third-gen hatchback brings a 1.2-liter DualJet petrol unit that generates a good 90hp of power and 113Nm of torque. Transmission options remain to be a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT unit.
Besides the powerful engine upgrade, the new Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift comes with minor cosmetic tweaks on the exterior. The cross mesh grille up front has been redesigned and now gets a chrome accent while the back gets slight changes compared to the outgoing model. The top-specs Swift now comes with three dual-tone options – Pearl Arctic white body with a black roof, Solid Fire red body with a black roof, and a Metallic Midnight blue with a white roof.
The cabin on the other hand comes with revised fabrics upholstery along with a new audio head unit that features feather-touch controls for volume and track change. The features like LED headlamps, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, keyless entry and go, auto climate control, rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB, and AUX connectivity continue in the facelift Swift as well. The fully-loaded model is equipped with cruise control, colored MID, an ideal start/stop system, and auto-folding ORVMs.
The new Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift rival the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Ford Figo, and Renault Triber.
