The exterior of this top-end ZDi variant sees a silver L-shaped enclosure for the foglight, reverse parking sensors and new 12-spoke alloy wheels. The front door handles get the 'unlock/lock request' button, as the Swift now comes with a keyless entry and go system.
Inside, the top-end Swift ZXi and ZDi get electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors, an engine starter button, a Bluetooth enabled music system and Bluetooth controls on the steering wheel. The Swift also gets a Ciaz-like keyfob which looks upmarket.
The Swift facelift's 1.2-liter K-Series petrol and 1.3-liter DDiS diesel engines have been tweaked for improved fuel economy. The 1.2-liter K-Series motor now has an ARAI rated efficiency of 20.4 km/l (up from 18.6 km/l), and the 1.3-liter DDiS claims 25.2 km/l, up from 22.9 km/l.
Dealers have told Indian Autos Blog that ABS will be offered as standard on the mid-level VXi/VDi trims, and driver-seat height adjustment will be seen across the range.
