India’s most popular and loved HatchBack Maruti Swift is all set for its new launch. The New Maruti Swift FaceLift 2021 teaser was officially launched by Maruti Suzuki yesterday.
The 40 seconds video teaser has shown many updates in the upcoming Swift and has been shared on Maruti’s official website too.
The facelifted Swift made its International debut in 2020 in selected markets such as Japan and Europe and is coming to India any time soon.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Engine:
The upcoming Maruti Swift will now come with a new K12N Dual Jet petrol engine. The new 1.2-litre petrol engine is capable of producing 90 PS of max power and 113 Nm of peak torque.
That is an increase of 7 PS over the previous engine which produces 83 PS of max power. However, the torque output and the gearbox options of both engines stay the same. The new engine will also be offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed AMT.
The new engine will also be more fuel-efficient than the current K12M petrol engine because it comes with idle start-stop technology.
That means the engine will automatically cut off when you are at a traffic light and will start again as soon as you press the clutch. But the engine does not get the SHVS mild-hybrid technology that we have seen on the Maruti Baleno.
Currently, the most fuel-efficient petrol car is the Maruti Dzire. There is a chance that the Maruti Suzuki Swift might be more fuel-efficient than the Dzire because it is a lighter and smaller vehicle because it is a hatchback.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Features:
The revised grille of Swift now gets a studded mesh-pattern finish as against the current hatchback’s horizontal slat design. There is also more chrome on the nose in the form of a thick chrome strip bisecting the grille, atop which sits the Suzuki logo.
The teaser video gives brief glimpses of the car and reveals that the updated Swift could come with dual-tone colour options. The updated car is also expected to sit on new design alloy wheels.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Rivals:
The Maruti Swift facelift will go up against the Ford Figo and Freestyle, Renault Triber and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios when it is launched. However, Swift will remain a petrol-only model.
Aside from the updated Swift, Maruti Suzuki is also preparing for the next-gen Celerio for the market launch this year. Also likely to arrive this year is the new second-generation Baleno and Vitara Brezza.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Interior:
Inside the cabin of the Maruti Suzuki facelift, there will be a couple of major updates. The revised instrument cluster will have a new coloured MID-multi-information display. It will provide a coloured multi-information display.
The updated Swift will come with the cruise control feature. The top-spec trim of the hatchback will be offered with the Smart Play Studio which includes – 7-inch touchscreen, SmartPlay Studio infotainment system, auto AC, and LED headlamps with LED DR.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Safety:
Maruti Swift will offer bigger Front and Rear brakes, Driver and Co-Driver seatbelt reminders.ISOFIX, reverse parking sensor with a rearview camera.
Maruti is expected to provide the AMT-equipped variants with Electronic Stability Control –ESC and hill-hold control, as it did with the facelifted Dzire. Other features, including dual front airbags and rear parking sensors, will be retained.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift Price:
The Maruti Suzuki Swift is presently available in the price range of Rs 5.49 lakh to Rs 8.02 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
