The new Swift could be launch as early as mid June. We expect Maruti to launch the new Swift by July-August. The new Swift is larger than the old model and features all new headlamp and tail lamp design. Maruti Suzuki has neatly rounded off the edgy rear end and profile of the car. The boot has a subtle curve and looks fresh. Engine options would remain unchanged with the 1.2 liter K-Series Petrol engine as well as the 1.3 Liter Fiat Multijet Diesel engine. Recently we reported that Maruti is looking at a smaller diesel engine as well. Since, diesel are in high demand, all automakers are now scrambling to develop new fuel efficient diesel engines.
The feature list on the new Swift could also be a long one with Start-Stop button, first seen in the segment on the Nissan Micra. Keyless entry could also be thrown in on the top-of-the-line variant. We expect customers will line-up for the diesel variant and hence waiting periods could be an issue. However, Maruti Suzuki must also be contemplating the same and will have to see to it that the waiting period does not exceed to much. The long wait is about to get over as the news of the car reaching showrooms surfaces. So those of you who have been patiently waiting for the car that has created so much buzz, well, your chance to get hold of one is just around the corner.
