Maruti Swift Latest Updates
Maruti Suzuki has announced up to 4.7 per cent hike in the prices on across all variants of select models including the Swift. The carmaker has cited increased input costs as the reason.
Suzuki has gone a step further than the Swift Sport that is sold in international markets, by showcasing a one-off concept called the Swift Extreme at the Thailand International Motor Expo. This concept hatchback features an aggressive design on the outside,however the carmaker has yet to reveal the interiors or the technical specifications. It is unlikely that a radical version of the Swift will make it to India as we are yet to even get the Sport variant.
Back in India, Maruti has updated the Swift to the latest BS6 norms. It also gets safety updates to make it compliant with the upcoming crash test and safety norms. The Swift gets the BS6 update to its 1.2-litre petrol motor only as the diesel variant will be axed soon. The 1.2-litre K12B is the same engine that’s found in the Baleno hatchback. While the power and torque figures remain the same, the fuel efficiency has seen a slight dip and now returns 21.4 kmpl as compared to the 22 kmpl figure in the BS4 variant. The Swift also gets safety updates with all variants get dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, driver and co-driver seatbelt warning and high speed alert as standard. These updates have also increased the prices of the Swift by Rs 4,000 to Rs 17,000 depending on the variant you pick.

Maruti Swift Highlights
Swift was 2nd Most Selling Car in October'19
Maruti Suzuki’s Swift has the distinction of being the 20 millionth car Suzuki has produced in India. Not just that, the third-gen Swift also holds the record for the least time taken to sell 100,000 units! That’s right. It took Maruti Suzuki just 145 days to find one lakh customers for its bestselling hatchback. With the new Swift promising to be more practical than ever, we aren’t the least bit surprised with its popularity.
The Swift carries over its tried-and-tested 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines. There’s no difference in power output either - the petrol makes 84PS and 114Nm whereas the diesel makes 75PS and 190Nm. What is new, however, is the fact that the Swift now gets an automated manual transmission both with the petrol and diesel engines. We loved thrashing the petrol Swift around; the thrummy, peppy engine can ensure quite a lot of giggles. The diesel, although not as much fun as the petrol, feels at home doing daily chores as well as weekend runs. We’ve road tested the diesel manual and automatic versions, and they proved to be a nice balance of frugal and fun. The manual took 12.38 seconds to hit 100kmph, whereas the automatic was over a second and a half slower at 14.06 seconds. In terms of efficiency, the manual returned an amazing 19.74kmpl (city) and 27.38kmpl (highway). The AMT nearly matched the efficiency inside the city at 19.27kmpl, but was less efficient on the highway, delivering 22.21kmpl.
Since safety features are standard across the range, the (O) variants from the earlier generation have been given the boot. A new Z+ variant has been added to the lineup that includes the L, V and Z variants - taking the total to four. In our books, it’s the Z variant that gives you the most bang for buck. If you want the Swift on a tighter budget, we’d recommend buying the L variant and sprucing it up with some accessories.
Swift Exterior and Interior
When India’s favourite hatch gets an update, everyone’s looking forward to something great, and yet expecting not much to change. You see, this paradox exists because the styling of the Swift is among the key reasons it’s loved so much. And with the third-generation, Maruti Suzuki hasn’t disappointed. The super short overhangs, blacked out A-pillar and the sloping roof are all trademark Swift elements. It’s become a whole lot more modern in other ways, though. It now packs in full-LED projector headlamps, all-LED tail amps and two-tone alloy wheels. Did we mention the rear door handle has now been moved to the C-pillar?
The cabin of the new Swift is genuinely surprising. If you assumed it’s a Swift, ergo it won’t have space - you’d be terribly mistaken. Two six-footers can sit behind each other quite comfortably. The cabin still isn’t wide enough to seat three people in the rear bench, though. Boot space too is now better at 268 litres. In terms of features, it packs in quite a lot including automatic climate control, a reverse camera, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android auto and Apple CarPlay and a six-speaker audio system. You also get helpful features such as height adjust for the driver’s seat, keyless entry and push button start. As far as safety is concerned, whether you pick the base-spec L variant or the top-spec Z+, you get dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard.
Maruti Swift Competitors
KUV100: The Mahindra KUV100 is the only other SUV-like hatchback in this segment and the only direct rival to the Ignis. Its funky design, fuel-efficient diesel engine and high equipment levels make it a compelling buy, while things like higher engine noise and excessive body roll make it less desirable.
Hyundai Grand i10 : The mid-sized hatchback from Hyundai has been given a refresh to keep up with the Ignis. The Hyundai Grand i10 offers a premium interior feel, efficient but peppy diesel engine, fun to drive characteristics and class-leading interior space without burning a hole in your pocket.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis: It looks quirky, but that’s pretty much the only problem with it. Otherwise it’s a nimble little hatch that can be quite fun to drive too.
Ford Figo : Ford’s fiesty little hatchback does a whole lot right. It’s easy to drive, reasonably efficient and in some ways, fun too. We wish the interiors were slightly roomier and offered better quality. It’s one of those underrated hatchbacks that sadly slip under the buyer’s radar.
The Swift is fun, economical, spacious and has a personality too. If you can’t be bothered researching and want a hatchback that's fun and can do a bit of everything, head over to the Maruti showroom. Be prepared to wait a while before you actually get one, though.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Swift
- It depends on you if you want small boot and small car for easy driving go for swift if you need a big one with enough boot space go for Dzire if its diesel more maintenance it's a bit pricey than petrol carand adds on more weight than a petrol carif its petrol less maintenance less cost than a diesel carless weight more power but you should afford petrolits expensive a bit than diesel
- Performance of diesel car is always best. However swift or swift dzire is your choice. Both have same technical specifications. There are only two variations. First is the looks of car, as one is hatchback amd other is sedan. Other difference is stability at top speed. I have driven swift at a top speed of 175 while dzire upto 183. Dzire was little more stable.
- Swift Dzire is better than Swift in case you are a regular to drive at high speeds & require more room for luggage. You will get nearly same fuel economy in Swift & Swift Dzire if habituated in keeping maximum speed below 80-85 KM/Hr. Swift is appearing me more decent than Swift Dzire & if you will be using this car for your own, go for Swift.....
- Yes new swift is the best car in the segment but swift falls on NCAP crash test and scores only 2 stars on safety. Maruti Swift interior quality is not best in its class, poor rear glass area and not much airy, falls on safety features, light weight, build quality is not best in its class. If you want good mileage, after sales and service, space and comfort, low maintenance cost, good resale value and value for money than go for swift. Buy 1.2 litre petrol ZXI.
- We Indian doesn't bother about safety rating and crash test rating..... just we will see mileage and feature...den we die instantly in the car...
- In my opinion other cars have more features and good performance like grand i10
- The Swift carries over its tried-and-tested 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines. The petrol makes 84PS and 114Nm whereas the diesel makes 75PS and 190Nm.

- The performance is very good due to the awesome chassis. coming to mileage you can get 22-25 in the highways if you maintain between 80-100 speeds. and you can get 17-19 even of you do speeds of about 120-150
- Swift petrol engine is well refined. I got the opportunity to drive the 2018 version. It is classy. But again ground clearance and back seat space is a bit cramped.Mileage is 16KMPL in city with full AC. And i am sure it will give more i.e 3-4 KMPL more on Highways!
- Maruti has showcased the Swift hybrid at the Auto Expo 2020. Even though Maruti doesn’t plan to launch the Swift hybrid in India, its technology is expected to be a part of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki cars.
- I20 in petrol and diesel with many variants and s sport model..with all safety features is the choice..if possible elite i20 asta is a good choice..swift is having less road grip ..less safe so its i20 all the way..new model alerts are there with new interiors and a pop up touch screen..
- Hyundai i 20 is far more safe, has more comfort, ambience & bells & whistles than the swift. Go for latest version of I 20. Maruti plays uncle scoorge & compromises on all, in the name of cost cutting, except for tuning the engine to extract higher mileage per kmpl of fuel.
- Yes, but only limited stock. Diesel maruti cars are being phased out from April 1,2020, just because maruti does not have a BS6 diesel engine. You may buy swift VDI at the earliest as production will be stopped by March 15, as no BS 4 registration will be done from April 1,2020.Alternatively I will suggest, you to wait

The swift is an most conveniante an best handling car for the beginers.. It offers more features like push button start, automatic climate control, touchscreen infotainment system and also provides an fun to drive experience to its owners, the millege is phenomenal in this segment I think bcoz it offers 24km millege in highway. Overall it satisfies the all things for beginners. And safety features also implemented in this car ex...ABS, EBD, airbags such I preety excited about this factors of my swift
Low cost maintenance , comfortable for a city use ,Martina services and supports excellent .Parts are readily available.Low cost maintenance , comfortable for a city use.
Not comfortable and not spacious for back seat passengers. I drive only for weekend trips or long trips on highway feel low power or on hills face alot of problem with it compare to my friends Hyundai grand i10 his car performs well and also looks small in size but spacious and have all features like stearing mounted controls and abs all disc brakes and engine performance like pickup and average also so good compare to my swift in all way worth it car.
Not at all a bad car. I started my driving with 800 and upgraded to alto and then to swift.when compared to those two swift is a fabulous upgrade...but I am a person with a long leg and my purpose of my car is mainly for tours and for long purpose and my huge size matters in my swift so I upgraded my car to ciaz diesel full option that is more comfortable and luxurious.
I purchased new hyundai venue before a week and i was wishing to exchange my 2 years old maruti swift with itself. But after 1 week of driving experience of hyundai venue i realise that it doesn't meets the standard of maruti swift.
nice car but need new car for new pollution norms
Good vehicle for middle class family
i have maruti Swift amt.gd comfort and reasonable mileage but i prefer manual compare to amt.
yet no idea I have car right now
Ok nice car. Easy to drive car

Editor's View of Maruti Swift
Enthusiasts car, without compromising on space, practicality and efficiency. Automatic transmission (AMT) offered with both petrol and diesel engines. Nicely loaded with features.
Ride is on the stiffer side. No AMT with the top-end Z+ variants. Wow features like LED headlights, DRLs, Smartplay infotainment system and automatic climate control, limited to Z+ variants.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift is back to its sporty roots, with the chassis tuned for handling than outright comfort. It is a big improvement on the old car but it's not quite the all-rounder it once was.
