Maruti is gearing up to launch the 2015 Maruti Swift, and here are 12 changes we know for certain on India’s most popular premium hatchback.

1. Petrol engine mildly reconfigured

Engineers have tweaked the petrol engine of the car to produce less power, but more torque. This has been done by increasing the compression ratio from 10.0:1 to 11.0:1, and as a result, the 1.2-liter K-Series engine makes 84.3 PS (83.11 bhp) at 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm, as against the older model’s 87 PS (85.77 bhp) at 6,200 rpm and 114 Nm @ 4,000 rpm.

2. Diesel engine gets no power/torque changes

The 1.3-liter Fiat-sourced DDiS diesel engine sees no changes to its power or torque outputs. On the 2015 model, it makes 75 PS (73.94 bhp) at 4,000 rpm and 190 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, just like before. The ECU, however has been tweaked to get a higher mileage.

3. Fuel Efficiencies up by 10 percent

The new Swift petrol is claimed to deliver 20.4 km/l (up from 18.6 km/l) and the Swift diesel has an ARAI rated 25.2 km/l (up from 22.9 km/l).
