Our eagle-eyed reader Siddhant Jain followed the new Swift during a round of city testing in Delhi with a camera last week. IAB readers would be aware that we have posted a video of the mule undergoing tests along with exclusive spy shots earlier in the year.
According to a newspaper report, production of the new Swift at Manesar will begin in the next couple of months and will be launched either during the end of July or the beginning of August. The report adds that the company will increase production so that the Swift can inch past the i10 (from the current 13k units to up to 17k units in August) to become the best seller in its segment.
The new Swift will be launched with the same 1.3-liter Multi-jet diesel engine and the 1.2-liter K Series engine which may be fitted with variable valve timing technology.
