No mechanical changes will be seen.
Seen here is a spyshot of the soon-to-launch Maruti Swift facelift, posted by GaadiWaadi. Maruti is reported to have commenced series production of the refreshed Swift, ahead of a launch that can take place anytime now.
Visual changes come in the form of LED daytime running lights (for the Z and V variants), new alloy wheels, possibly new wheel caps for the non-alloy wheel variants and the option of body-coloured or chrome door handles.
In terms of features, the refreshed Swift will get parking sensors on the top-end trim, and other features could include power folding wing mirrors, keyless entry with an engine starter button and an Auto-up feature for the driver-side window.
Mechanical changes will not be seen, and the Swift will chug on with the 1.2-liter K-Series petrol engine and the 1.3-liter diesel motor, both matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
These minor updates for the Swift would help it ward off the little excess competition coming from the Elite i20 and the updated Polo.
Competitors: Hyundai Elite i20, VW Polo, Honda Jazz, Tata Bolt
Expected Price: INR 4.5-7 lakhs, ex-showroom
Launch Date: Year-end
