Maruti-Suzuki have showcased an accessorized version of the recently launched Swift facelift at a concert recently. The white Swift gets a black contrast roof and a couple of stripes on its hood. Additionally, ‘music’ decals are seen on the sides of the car, probably justifying the Swift’s place at the concert.
The hatchback is also seen wearing an aero kit which adds side skirts and a sportier front bumper underlip. Finally, the alloy wheels are painted in a yellow shade, complementing the oversized headset fitted on the rear of the car.
The Swift seen here is the diesel variant which is powered by the 1.3-liter Fiat-sourced Multijet engine producing 75 PS (73.94 bhp) and 190 Nm of torque, matched to a 5-speed manual transmission. Engineers have tweaked the thermal management system of the engine and modified the fuel injection system to extract more efficiency from it. As a result, the refreshed Swift diesel returns 25.2 km/l as against the older model’s 22.9 km/l.
The ZDi/ZXi variants are now equipped with features like electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors, keyless entry with push button start, a Bluetooth enabled music system and controls for accepting and ending phone calls on the steering wheel.
