Will be significantly lighter, more advanced and more premium than its predecessor.
Sources have confirmed to CarAndBike that the all-new Maruti Swift Dzire will launch in India in May. Recent spy shots of the Maruti Swift Dzire ensured that very little is left to the imagination, revealing the complete exterior and interior ahead of its launch.
The new Swift Dzire will be significantly lighter, more advanced and more premium than the predecessor. It is based on the international-spec 2017 Suzuki Swift which is on sale in Japan and was unveiled in Europe last month. However, the Swift Dzire has unique touches to its exterior design such as a wide grille with a bold chrome appliqué, new bumper chrome accents, new LED taillamps, moulded boot spoiler, shark fin antenna, and redesigned rear bumper.
Inside, the Swift Dzire has a beige and black colour combination with chrome, silver and faux wood trim materials, as well as restyled centre console, instrument binnacle and auto climate control buttons. The leather-wrapped, Swift-sourced steering wheel is flat-bottomed and has buttons for audio and telephony (besides the horn pad), but the cluster does not get the 4.2-inch colour MID. A 7-inch Smartplay touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be equipped in the top-end grade.
As for engine options, the 1.3L DDiS 190 4-cyl diesel engine paired with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AGS (AMT), as well as a 1.2L 4-cyl K12B petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual, will be offered. The petrol automatic option could either retain the 4-speed automatic or source a 5-speed AMT from Ignis.
