What Maruti Suzuki has also done is made the Swift a tad more practical. Thanks to the Heartect platform, it’s wider by 40mm while the wheelbase has grown by 20mm as well. Naturally, it’s a lot more accommodating than before. Topping things off is the 268-litre boot that’s now on par with rivals such as the Hyundai Grand i10 and the Ford Figo.

Yes, Maruti Suzuki is carrying forward the same 1.2- and 1.3-litre petrol and diesel engines that powered the second-gen Swift. Power figures remain unchanged at 83PS/113Nm and 75PS/190Nm, respectively. But, for the first time - the Swift gets an automatic transmission. What’s more, the two-pedal technology is available with both motors. ARAI-certified fuel efficiency stands at 22kmpl for the petrol and 28.4kmpl for the diesel.

The Swift has been synonymous with fun. And, we’re pleased to report that the third-generation delivers on that front. We’ve already driven the hatch, read our detailed review of the car here.
