The 2017 (Maruti) Suzuki Swift has once again been spied testing in Europe, donned in the usual canopy to hide its exterior. The next gen Swift is expected to launch in India in 2017 following its world debut, reportedly at the Paris Motor Show this September.

The next gen Swift is expected to launch in India in 2017.

The spyshot features the rear-end of the Swift, which seemingly looks more similar to the first gen Maruti Swift than its successor (current Swift). Revealed in leaked images, the next gen Swift has a floating roof impression, new taillamps, rear door handle in the C-pillar and new alloy rim designs. The front-end will sport a gaping grille, new headlights with projector lamps and redesigned bumper.

The 2017 Maruti Swift will be based on the Baleno’s lightweight platform. It is expected to shed 50 kg from the current model’s kerb weight, improving its fuel efficiency as well as handling characteristics. The construction is also reported to be extra rigid to increase crash protection levels.

A 5-speed manual gearbox will be standard, while an automatic variant is very likely to be in the cards for the next gen Swift.
