2020 Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift leaked online
A number of images doing the rounds on social media have revealed what the Maruti Suzuki Swift facelift will look like, ahead of its launch later this year. These images are from the brochure of the Japanese-spec Suzuki Swift, but here is a good idea of what the Indian car might look like.
The most noticeable changes have been done on the front of the car. Here the grille gets a honeycomb-patterned insert to it, split in the middle by a slim body-coloured element. The bumper looks a bit chunkier too, with a larger fog lamp insert and a more pronounced lip. The lighting remains unchanged. There are no real changes to the rear either or to the interiors. The Japanese spec car gets a 360-degree camera but that is unlikely to make it to India. We can expect a few more features like cruise control, as we've seen with the updated DZire.
Mechanically, we expect the facelifted Swift to be equipped with the new BSVI compliant 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder K12C DuelJet petrol engine that makes 91PS, which is 7PS more than the previous engine, and 113 Nm. It should also come with idle start-stop tech. The gearbox options will include a 5-speed manual and an AMT. Like with the rest of the Maruti Suzuki range, there will be no diesel engine. In Japan, a hybrid version will be available as well, as seen at the 2020 Auto Expo, but it is unlikely that we will get the powertrain option anytime soon.
The facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift is expected to launch in India by the festive season, with prices increasing by about Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000. Prices of the Swift currently start at Rs 5.2 lakh for the base LXi trim and go up to Rs 8.02 lakh for the ZXi Plus AMT.
