All-new Maruti Swift to debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Quattroruote has published new spyshots of the 2017 Maruti Swift which confirm that the car’s set to get a mild-hybrid system in its fourth generation.

The next-gen Maruti Swift will be based on the all-new Maruti Baleno’s high-rigidity and lightweight new-generation platform.

However, taking a peek inside the car, the instrument cluster reveals that the 2017 Maruti Swift seen on test here has a petrol engine (indicated by the tachometer’s reading upto 8,000 rpm) which is supported by a battery-powered electric motor. The colour display between the rev counter and the speedometer shows an icon of the engine, a silver-coloured icon of the motor and a green-colour charging status indicator of the battery.

Suzuki may go for the same approach for the next-gen Swift as for the all-new Baleno in Europe, offering the K12C 1.2-litre DUALJET naturally aspirated engine with the SHVS mild-hybrid system. Also on offer, will likely be the K10C DITC 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder Boosterjet petrol engine.

In India, Maruti-Suzuki offers the SHVS technology on the Ertiga and Ciaz. The Baleno is reportedly next-in-line to receive this feature in the Indian market.

For the Indian market, the 2017 Swift will continue to offer petrol and diesel powertrains, the latter could be an all-new engine developed in-house. Unlike the present day Swift hatchback, Maruti would consider offering an automatic transmission in the next-generation model.
