Next generation 2017 Maruti Swift – Rendering
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Based on images leaked from a dealer conference.
Less than a fortnight ago, a gallery of images were leaked online from a Suzuki dealer conference which revealed the final design of the next generation 2017 Maruti Swift (Suzuki Swift).
Based on the design changes, IAB’s graphic artist Shoeb R Kalania has created a rendering to offer a better look at its final design. Compared to the current model, it features an upright front-end with a gaping grille, foglamps with LED DRLs, new headlamps and curvy front fenders inspired by the Baleno. The rear-end gets a floating roof impression, smaller taillamps with LED lighting and door handles on the B-Pillar.
One of the leaked images disclosed the interior of the next gen Swift, which adopts an all new design that looks cleaner and more modern than the outgoing model. It comes equipped with a new steering wheel, twin pod instrument dials, new center console design with circular HVAC vents, Smartplay infotainment system, and new HVAC controls.
Suzuki has not confirmed the engine lineup for the next Swift, although it’s likely to feature the 1.2L K-Series and a 1.0L Boosterjet. The 1.3L DDiS could be replaced with Suzuki’s self-developed diesel engine. Transmission options may include 5-speed manual, an AMT or even a CVT unit.
