Maruti Suzuki Swift And WagonR Get BS6 Engines And Safety Updates

The new updates on both cars are accompanied by a bump up in pricing

  • The updates see the prices of the Swift increase by up to Rs 17,000 depending on the variant.
  • The Wagon R also gets a price update and the revised prices now start from Rs 4.34 lakh.
  • Only the 1.2-litre K12B petrol motor gets the BS6 update.
  • 1.3-litre diesel Swift to be axed once the new BS6 norms kick in next year.
  • The Swift also gets safety updates to make it compliant with the upcoming safety norms.

After updating the Baleno and the Alto to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms, Maruti Suzuki has now updated the 1.2-litre petrol engine in the Swift and WagonR in accordance with the upcoming emission norms. Apart from the emission norms update, the Swift also gets additional safety features to make it compliant with the upcoming safety norms as well.

It must be mentioned that the Swift and WagonR’s 1.2-litre K12B petrol motor only gets the BS6 emission norms update. As of now, the Wagon R’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol motor hasn’t been updated to meet the BS6 emission norms. Power and torque figures in the 1.2-litre K12B petrol motor remain unchanged after the BS6 update and the motor churns out 83PS of power and 113m of torque. The fuel efficiency though has seen a slight dip and the BS6 Swift and Wagon R now returns 21.4 kmpl as compared to the BS4 version’s 22 kmpl.

The 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine in the Swift also hasn’t received any updates as the carmaker will axe all diesel models from its portfolio post April 1, 2020.

The Swift also gets safety updates to make it compliant with the upcoming safety and crash test norms. All variants of the Swift now get dual airbags, ABS with EBD, driver and co-driver seatbelt warning, high speed alert and rear parking sensors as standard. Previously, there was no co-driver seatbelt warning and the parking sensors were limited to the top-spec Z trims only.

With the latest updates, Maruti has silently axed the base-spec LDi diesel variant of the Swift. The prices have also been bumped up by Rs 4,000 to Rs 17,000 depending on the variant you pick. Have a look at the table to see the difference in prices variant wise:
