Get an exclusive preview of the fourth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift – featuring a modern yet familiar design, technological enhancements, and fuel-efficient powertrains.
The Maruti Swift, renowned for its sporty aesthetics and practicality, is poised to enter its next evolutionary phase. With its recent unveiling at the Japan Mobility Show and the sighting of a test model on Indian roads, both shoppers and enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating its official launch. The upcoming Swift generation is anticipated to blend the best of its heritage with the promise of an even more exciting future.
Let’s delve into everything we currently know about the next-generation Maruti Swift, along with some anticipated details:
Progressive Exterior Design
The fourth-generation Swift preserves its iconic Swift identity while embracing a youthful and sporty design. It represents an evolution of design, drawing inspiration from the Mini Cooper’s style, offering smart interior packaging, and maintaining its reputation for a balanced ride and handling. The hatchback boasts several design updates, including a distinctive clamshell bonnet, an assertive grille, a sportier front bumper, and new LED headlights featuring a captivating DRL pattern.
In terms of the side profile, the changes are more subtle, with new wheels and rear door handles returning to conventional placements, in contrast to the previous C-pillar positioning. The overall silhouette retains the recognizable Swift identity. At the rear, you’ll find updates in the form of new LED taillights, a restyled tailgate, and a more dynamic rear bumper, further enhancing the car’s sporty appeal.
Inside the fourth-generation Swift, you’ll discover significant upgrades. The circular dials with integrated displays have been replaced by a toggle-style auto climate control panel borrowed from the Baleno. While the India-specific Swift may not include the HUD found in the Baleno, its premium upholstery and sleek cabin design are sure to captivate buyers.
A notable enhancement comes in the form of a standalone 9-inch infotainment screen that supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, mirroring the setup in the new Baleno. Furthermore, the hatchback will incorporate Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a sought-after feature in modern vehicles.
The next-generation Maruti Swift is set to introduce a new 3-cylinder 1.2L NA petrol engine featuring a 48V self-charging hybrid system. This robust hybrid configuration is rumored to deliver a fuel efficiency of over 30 kmpl, although real-world figures may be slightly lower. The current 1.2-liter inline-4 petrol engine is also expected to continue.
According to speculations, the next-generation Maruti Swift is expected to arrive in the Indian car market next year. Given the production-ready appearance of the test mule spotted on Indian roads, these rumors hold credibility. The hatchback is likely to be priced in the range of Rs. 6 lakh to Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom).”
