After the launch of new Maruti Suzuki Dzire, the all-new Swift is the next most awaited hatchback. 2018 Maruti Suzuki Swift will be showcased at the upcoming Auto Expo in February, But it’s been already spied in India. This spied all-new Swift was not wearing any camouflage as these images were captured when Swift’s TV commercial was being shot in Mumbai. The cars spotted had a different alloy wheel design and maybe different size too. All-new Maruti Suzuki Swift will be launched in India in early 2018. And since we have seen the new Dzire, we know what to expect from the new Swift.
Engine and Gearbox
The new Swift is a complete overhaul of its predecessor. It has a new chassis, interiors, and exterior design. However, the engine options are expected to be the same. There are two engine variants- 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine. The petrol engine churns out 84PS of power and 115Nm of torque, While, the diesel motor makes 75PS of power and 190Nm of torque. Both the engines are offered with 5-Speed manual gearbox. One change we can expect in the drivetrain is the addition of automatic transmission.
Suzuki displayed a sportier Swift RS variant at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. While getting the same Swift RS would be awesome, but judging by Maruti Suzuki’s past actions, Swift RS with a 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine what we should expect. Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS carries the same 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine.
Since the new Maruti Suzuki Dzire was loaded with technology, we can expect the same from the new Swift. The new Swift will get LED headlights with daytime running lights, Standard ABS and dual airbags, and touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
