The current Maruti Swift's petrol engine is expected to be carried forward in the fourth generation Maruti Swift. The diesel engine may be a new unit developed by Suzuki.

The fourth generation Suzuki Swift is currently under development in Europe, spyshots affirmed just a few days back. As depicted in the sketch, the all-new Swift will undergo an evolutionary redesign, remaining largely unchanged in shape. What will be extensively changed, will be under the skin.

The fourth-gen Swift will be based on the all-new Baleno‘s high-rigidity and lightweight new-generation platform. The aforementioned report says that the 2017 Swift will measure 3,900 mm in length, 1,695 mm in width and 1,500 mm in height. The new platform is expected to bring considerable weight savings to the car, of nearly 50 kg (in kerb weight).

The 2017 Suzuki Swift is expected to be offered with the K12C 1.2-litre DUALJET naturally-aspirated four-cylinder and K10C DITC 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engines in Europe. The 2017 Suzuki Swift Sport will sport the K14C-DITC 1.4-litre BOOSTERJET turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine from the current Suzuki Vitara.
