The first- and second-gen Maruti Swift were built in Gurgaon, but the 2018 Maruti Swift’s production won’t take place there. Maruti Suzuki has decided to build the third-gen Maruti Swift exclusively at the Gujarat plant, says a report from The Economic Times.

The Gujarat plant, located in Hansalpur (Ahmedabad district), is Suzuki’s first wholly-owned plant in India. Production at this plant commenced in February 2017 and only the Maruti Baleno is currently produced there. Now, R. S. Kalsi, Sr. Executive Director (Marketing and Sales), has confirmed that Suzuki’s Gujarat plant will exclusively build the third-gen Maruti Swift in India. Production for the export markets will also take place there only.

The 2018 Maruti Swift measures 3,840 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width and 1,530 mm in height. It is 10 mm shorter and 40 mm wider but the same in height as the old model. The wheelbase has grown by 20 mm to 2,450 mm. The all-new Maruti Swift has a ground clearance of 163 mm.

The 2018 Maruti Swift continues with the old model’s 1.2-litre VVT petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS 190 diesel engine. The petrol engine now produces 84.3 PS (±0 PS) and 113 Nm (-2 Nm) of torque. The diesel engine develops 75 PS (± 0 PS) and 190 Nm of torque (± 0 Nm) of torque. Transmission choices include 5-speed manual and 5-speed AGS automated manual.
