The 2017 Suzuki Swift was launched in Japan in December 2016 and it is set to hit the Indian market in the middle of the year. According to a new report from Autocar India, the new generation Swift will continue with the outgoing model's engine options.
The current Maruti Swift is offered with the 1.2-litre VVT four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 84.3 PS at 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm and the 1.3-litre DDiS four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 75 PS at 4,000 rpm and 190 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. In Japan, the all-new Swift is offered with K10C 1.0-litre BOOSTERJET VVT three-cylinder and K12C 1.2-litre DUALJET VVT four-cylinder petrol engines. The latter is offered with a mild-hybrid system as well.
The fourth generation Swift is based on the company's "HEARTECT" new-generation platform. The JDM-spec model measures 3,840 mm in length, 1,695 mm in width and 1,500 mm/1,525 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,450 mm. Noteworthy features of the 2017 Swift include LED headlamps, 16-inch wheels, C-pillar integrated door handles, flat-bottomed steering wheel, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration compatibility and navigation, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and collision-mitigating system.
Maruti Suzuki will manufacture the new generation Swift at Suzuki's new plant in Gujarat, alongside Baleno and the next-gen Dzire. The Dzire will be the first model of the new Swift family to launch in India, with its rollout expected around May.
