To debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
A Japanese motoring blog on Livedoor has published new details on the 2017 Suzuki Swift (2017 Maruti Swift in India) from its promotional material, allegedly. The next generation Suzuki Swift is scheduled to debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
According to the info provided, the engines include the 1.2 Dualjet four cylinder engine and 1.0L Boosterjet three cylinder engine. The former comes in two variants: regular model with a 5-speed manual gearbox and SHVS mild hybrid variant paired with a CVT. Both variants are reported to produce 91 PS, and weigh between 830 - 910 kg, thanks to the new lightweight platform sourced from Baleno.
The top-end variant is powered by a 1.0L Boosterjet engine that produces 102 PS, which is 10 PS less powerful than the Baleno Boosterjet. The Swift Boosterjet is only available with a 6-speed automatic gearbox (torque converter), and it weighs 930 kg. Other features listed in the top-end turbo model include radar brake support (RBS), curtain airbags, and automatic headlamps.
Another detail posted by the Japanese blog is that a new metallic red paint similar to the Mazda2's 'Soul Red Metallic' will be exclusive to the Suzuki Swift at launch.
