All-New Maruti Suzuki Swift Opens for Bookings in India

   May 13,2024

Maruti Suzuki has already formally showed the fourth generation of the Swift hatchback before the most-awaited launch on 9th May 2024. The bookings have already been opened for a small amount of Rs 11,000 and can be done both online and at any Maruti Suzuki dealership.


Familiar Silhouette, New Styling

The 4th gen will retain the familiar silhouette and design language of the current generation. The sources are saying that the India-spec bumper is very different and the alloy wheels are completely new. Expect it to be ever so little bit longer and narrower, but it will hold the same wheelbase.

Completely Overhauled Interior with Premium Touch

The interior gets a completely new look while still feeling familiar. It borrows some elements from Maruti's more premium offerings like the Baleno and Fronx, such as a totally different paneling and a really unique housing for the new 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. However, core components like the HVAC controls, steering wheel, and door switches will be familiar with Swift veterans. Safety is also said to be getting a big boost, with features such as six airbags and Electronic Stability Program (ESP) being standard.

What Holds the Heart of the New Swift: New Powertrain

Perhaps the most exciting change under the hood. The new Swift axes the existing K12 four-cylinder engine in favor of a brand new 1.2-liter, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine. The new engine is said to have high fuel efficiency and is expected to offer almost the same power and torque figures from the existing model (around 90 hp and 113 Nm). Another possibility is mild hybrid technology being introduced. Maruti Suzuki is also tight-lipped on whether they will retain the existing AMT or introduce the 6-speed torque converter gearbox used in other Maruti models.

Competition and Price Expectations

The new Swift will continue to face stiff competition from established rivals, in the form of Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Tata Tiago, and Citroen C3. We expect the price to be higher than the old Swift, which has a range from Rs 6.24 lakh to Rs 8.83 lakh (ex-showroom). Intriguingly, Maruti Suzuki also recently increased the price of the outgoing model, perhaps as part of a plan to make the new Swift seem relatively cheaper at the launch.

The new Swift promises familiar design with a brand-new interior, a brand-new engine, and perhaps improved safety features. With bookings now open and the launch date looming, Maruti Suzuki clearly aims to retain the Swift's position as the most popular hatchback in India.
