The new Maruti Swift is underpinned by the same platform of the Baleno. The new platform will make the new Swift lighter than the outgoing model which will improve the handling of the hatchback.

The new Swift features redesigned front fascia with sweptback headlamps, hexagonal grille, and revamped bumper. The side profile is a typical Swift design with blacked out A and B-pillars and floating roof design.

    The third-gen hatchback is likely to draw power from the existing 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine. But the new Swift is expected to be faster due to its reduced weight. The new Swift is likely to be offered with AMT gearbox on both the petrol and diesel variants.
