Is Maruti Suzuki Swift lacking after facelift (update)? It's price, specifications, and features are here.

Having dominated sales charts for three years, the third generation Maruti Swift has now finished its tenure. It would seem that now is the ideal moment to roll out a juicy update and elevate the fun hatch to a new level. A revised version has also been provided by Maruti Suzuki. Tragically, it appears to be a poor attempt at a facelift at first glance.

The Maruti Suzuki Swift CNG is identical to the outgoing model and has not been improved. A single-piece front grille with horizontal chrome embellishment and black-encased fog lamps dominate the front. The ZXi has 15-inch silver-finished alloy wheels, while the VXi has smaller 14-inch steel rims with wheel covers. Additionally, Maruti says that the suspension has been adjusted to provide a better ride.

The lower variant of the ZXi loses out on features like a rear wiper, electrically foldable outside mirrors, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a 60:40 split rear seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an auto-up feature for the driver's side window.

Engine and Gearbox
The 1.2-liter petrol engine (90 PS/113 Nm) that powers the Swift is paired with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic gearbox. The same engine powers the CNG versions, which only have a 5-speed manual gearbox and produce 77.5 PS and 98.5 Nm. To increase fuel efficiency, the Maruti hatchback also has an idle start/stop feature.

In comparison to the previous version, the Swift recorded a faster 0-100 kmph time of 11.63 seconds. Remarkably, there is also a rise in the claimed fuel efficiency: 23.2 mpg (MT) and 23.76 mpg (AMT) compared to the previous 21.21 mpg. This is probably because the car now has start-stop technology, which turns it off automatically when it is idling, like when you are at a red light or in a terrible traffic jam. 

Maruti Suzuki Swift features are dual airbags, ABS with EBD, a reverse parking camera, steering-mounted controls, cruise control, an idle start-stop function, a SmartPlay Studio touchscreen infotainment system, and keyless entry.

There are four main variants available: ZXi, LXi, VXi, and ZXi+. CNG is an option for the ZXi and VXi trims. The Swift is available in six monotone and three dual-tone exterior shade options: Solid Fire Red, Pearl Metallic Midnight Blue with Pearl Arctic White Roof, Pearl Arctic White with Pearl Midnight Black Roof, Metallic Magma Grey, Pearl Midnight Blue, Pearl Arctic White, Metallic Silky Silver, Solid Fire Red, and Pearl Metallic Lucent Orange.

  • Attention is still drawn to funky styling. Lots of room for modification as well!
  • It is a lot of fun to drive thanks to its playful chassis and steering.
  • It's a better package with new features like coloured MID and cruise control.
  • The price is pitifully close to that of the Baleno, a car with superior quality and more space.
  • No big alterations to the design. It doesn't appear to be a new model.
  • Only the AMT version is equipped with new safety features.

Maruti Swift prices range from Rs. 5.99 Lakh to Rs. 9.03 Lakh for the top model. There are 11 different Swift models available. The LXI is the base model, and the ZXI Plus DT AMT is the top model.

You might not be impressed by Maruti's Swift in terms of updates. It could have used a higher quality upgrade, a more modern design, and a few more comforting features. The new engine is the only noticeable update. In terms of efficiency, performance, and refinement, the older petrol engine was already a standard; however, the new engine just outperforms it.
