Inside, the 2017 Swift will feature an all new design that combines a sportier instrument cluster with a new multi-info display, new three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, a touchscreen SmartPlay system and automatic climate control with integrated digital display, all of which will be offered in the top-end grade.

As of now, details on the engine lineup of the next generation Maruti Swift are scarce. It could continue with the 1.2 four cylinder K-Series petrol engine, albeit with certain refinements, while the diesel variant could get a brand new diesel engine developed by Maruti (Suzuki). A 1.0L Boosterjet engine may also be in the cards for a sportier variant of the next Swift, aside from the Swift Sport.
