All-new Maruti Swift would have its grand premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March, claims an AutoCar India report. Contrary to earlier reports, which claimed the hatch making its global debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the new report further clarifies that the new Swift is currently under development and it would take at least a good six months for the company to ready it. Moreover, it has been confirmed that 2017 Maruti Swift would come with SHVS mild-hybrid system, similar to Ciaz and Ertiga.

The next-generation Maruti Swift would be based on the Baleno's lightweight architecture, making it lighter around 50 kgs than the ongoing model. The hatch has been spied as test mule several times in Europe, albeit heavily camouflaged. Though, spy-shots and leaked renderings have stated that the new Swift would have evolutionary exterior styling, totally different from the current-gen hatch. A couple of interior spy-shots have showed that it has been completely re-worked. The Euro-spec model would be manufactured in Hungary, while being offered with a couple of petrol engines. The petrol engines in question here are likely to be the naturally aspirated 1.2L 4-cylinder K12C DUALJET engine and the 1.0L 3-cylinder turbocharged K10C DITC engine.

The India-spec 2017 Swift would be powered by the same 1.2L petrol engine as the current model. However, the Fiat-sourced 1.3L DDiS diesel engine is learnt to be replaced by an all-new 1.5L diesel motor, which would be developed in-house by Maruti. Also, it is being widely speculated that the all-new Swift could come with an auto gearbox, besides the conventional 5-speed manual unit. The company is expected to launch the new Swift in the second half of 2017 in India. Maruti Swift has been twice the Indian Car of the Year (ICOTY) and has constantly featured in the list of top ten selling passenger vehicles with average monthly sales exceeding 12,000 units. In other news, Maruti is planning to introduce the SHVS mild-hybrid technology with the Baleno soon in India.
