The new Swift has hit some dealer yards and proof for our claim is attested below. On the Maruti Swift Facebook Page, user Rohitash Sinha posted these pics of the Swift diesel test drive vehicles captured from a Maruti Suzuki dealer yard.
The new Swift bows in on the 17th of this month (the same day as the new VW Jetta). Maruti Suzuki has worked out a better Swift by adding more features and increasing capacity back at the factory. However that said, waiting period will be around three months unless you own a dealership or know someone who does very closely.
Variants of the new Swift along with the equipment has been discussed in depth in an earlier post. The Swift petrol is driven by a 1,197cc engine producing 87PS/114Nm while the 1,248cc diesel engine (Fiat sourced) coaxes out 75PS/190Nm.
Both engines have been adjusted to the new Swift's engine bay. The petrol engine gets variable valve timing technology and the diesel engine is installed with a Fixed Geometry Turbocharger. The top-end ZXI variant, on both avatars, gets features like 15 inch alloy wheels, Auto AC, Dual Airbags, ABS, EBD and height adjustable driver seat.
