Maruti Suzuki has finally launched the all-new Swift at an introductory price of Rs. 4.99 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi) in the country. The bookings for the new hatch had started around 20 days back at a token amount of Rs. 11,000 across company authorized dealerships and it already commands a waiting period of 8 weeks. Being based on the Heartect light-weight architecture, the all-new Maruti Swift is introduced in four trim levels: LXi/LDi, VXi/VDi, ZXi/ZDi and ZXi+/ZDi+. The production of all-new Swift hatch is underway at Maruti's Gujarat manufacturing unit.
The all-new Swift flaunts an entirely new design with single-frame front grille, flanked by bug-esque projector headlamps with LED daytime runnings lamps. The hatch rides on newly-designed alloy wheels, while the floating-style roof design and blackened B-pillar further accentuate the styling quotient. The rear end boasts of LED tail-lamp cluster and new bumper. Speaking of the interior cabin, it seems identical to the DZire sedan with a host of premium features such as flat-bottom steering wheel, new SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and much more. As far as safety is concerned, the all-new Swift gets Dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Dual front airbags, and Isofix child seat mounts as standard features.
Mechanically, Maruti Swift comes in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with same set of petrol and diesel mills. The petrol variants are powered by the 1.2L K12 engine which develops maximum power of 84bhp at 6000rpm and peak torque of 113Nm at 4200rpm.
