2017 Maruti Swift spied in Europe by IAB reader

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Expected to launch in India in 2017.

One of the early test mules of the 2017 Maruti Swift has been spotted by IAB reader, Evgeny Borzilov, in Europe. Similar to the Suzuki Baleno, the next gen Swift could be previewed as a near-production concept later this year, before making its world debut in production-spec next year.

The next gen Maruti Swift will be based on the Baleno‘s lightweight platform and is expected to shed nearly 50 kg.

The test mule is completely wrapped to hide the final design, although leaked images of the next gen Maruti Swift from a dealer conference had given us a first look at the exterior. It retains the familiar, urban styling of the current Swift, but features a gaping grille, new headlights with projector lamps, floating roof impression, new taillamps, rear door handle in the C-pillar and new alloy rim designs.

It will be based on the Baleno‘s lightweight platform and is expected to shed nearly 50 kg from the current model’s kerb weight. This is expected to improve the Swift’s fuel economy and performance, while the extra rigidity could increase crash protection levels to meet India’s future safety regulations.

For the European market, engine lineup could include a 1.0L three-cylinder Boosterjet petrol engine and a 1.25L DualJet N/A engine with SHVS mild hybrid powertrain. The India-spec Maruti Swift is likely to continue with the 1.2 four cylinder K-Series petrol engine, while the diesel variant could get a brand new engine developed by Maruti (Suzuki).
