The design of the new Swift is actually an evolution from the outgoing model. The exterior of the new-gen hatch boasts an oval-ish grille with a mesh pattern, complemented by sharper LED headlights and L-shaped LED DRLs. Additional standout features include stylish alloy wheels, and wraparound LED tail lights.

The interior of the Swift also receives a fresh update, borrowing elements from the Baleno and Fronx. However, some dashboard panels and the housing for the 9.0-inch touchscreen have been subtly tweaked. Moreover, enhanced safety features like a 360-degree camera, six airbags, and ESP are anticipated, with the latter two potentially becoming standard offerings.

New Z-Series Engine

The new Swift is expected to get the brand’s new Z-Series 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that makes 82PS and up to 112Nm. It is claimed to offer better fuel efficiency than the outgoing 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine. Globally, Suzuki also offers this new powermill with mild-hybrid and all-wheel-drive systems. However, they are unlikely to make to its Indian-spec version.

The international-spec Swift also offers both 5-speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox options, but the Indian-spec model is expected to feature a 5-speed AMT instead of the CVT, aiming to maintain affordability for the hatchback.
