The Swift is now 10 percent more efficient.
Post the launch of the refreshed Maruti Swift last month, the company has released the car’s TV commercial which lists out the changes that have been made.

On the outside, the Swift is now available in three new body colors, including this Solid Red shade. The foglight enclosures of the V and Z trims get a silver L-shaped bezel, while a black bezel is to be seen on the base variant. Designers have also given the car new alloy wheels.
In a bid to make the car more feature rich, Maruti has included electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors, keyless entry with a smart key, push button start, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth-enabled music system.
The refreshed Swift doesn’t see any drastic change to its mechanicals, yet engineers have managed to juice out 10 percent more economy from the 1.2-liter petrol and 1.3-liter diesel engines.
The petrol engine sees a mild detune at 84.3 PS (83.11 bhp) at 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm to return 20.4 km/l. The diesel engine, which now delivers 25.2 km/l, gets a modified injection system and low friction engine oil.
