Ahead of the much-awaited launch of the next generation Maruti Suzuki Swift, the brochure for the Japanese market has been leaked. The Japanese brochure reveals that the Swift retains the overall design language except with a refreshed new face and rear-end.
In keeping with the modern trend, the next generation Swift is refreshed with a new face, tail lamps, and a lower C-pillar carrying the sporty image the hatchback enjoys. The Japanese market will get to choose the next generation Swift in eight different colours.
The brochure reveals the new Swift will be offered with a 1.2-litre K-series engine and a 1.0-litre Booster Jet engine whose models have been dubbed as RS.
While the 1.2-litre K-series engine will churn out 83bhp and 115Nm of torque, the 1.0-litre Booster Jet engine will punch out 110bhp and 170Nm of torque. The standard trim of the 2017 Swift for the Japanese market will get a 5-speed manual gearbox or the option of CVT.
The RS model of the next-generation Swift has the option of an automatic gearbox (AT). They also get the option of the 4WD system and hybrid technology on select variants. The India bound next-generation Swift will have the option of the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine as well.
As per the brochure, we can see the cabin is closer to the renderings which leaked earlier this year. The new Swift will be a full black cabin with a touchscreen infotainment system, electrically powered ORVMs, flat bottom steering wheel and a twin-pod instrument cluster with a TFT display.
The 2017 Swift Japanese brochure also reveals the hatchback featuring the Baleno wheels. The new 2017 Maruti Suzuki Swift is expected to be officially revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The Swift badge has been a game changer in the hatchback segment in India, and it is not just for the segment but for Maruti as a company as well.
