Maruti Suzuki Swift Gets An Updated Infotainment System — No Hike In Price!

Maruti Suzuki launched the Swift hatchback in India back in May 2005. The Swift was the game-changer and everybody liked it. Recently, Maruti Suzuki has updated the infotainment system on the Swift and now the hatchback gets the brand's SmartPlay Studio infotainment system. And guess what, the prices for the Swift, after the update, remain the same as before.

We also expect the upcoming facelifted Swift to get the new 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine which is seen on the 2020 Dzire. The unit makes 89bhp of power (7bhp over the current 1.2-litre engine) and 113Nm of torque. The current model is available with a BS6 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 82bhp of power and the same amount of torque as the DualJet unit. Transmission options include a five-speed manual unit and an AMT unit.

The company claimed that the mileage of the petrol engine has gone up from 21.21kmpl to 23.26kmpl with the 5-speed manual gearbox and up to 24.12kmpl with the 5-speed AMT. The increase in the mileage figures is due to the idle auto stop-start function. However, the diesel variant of the Swift could not meet the emission norms and so that company had to pull the plug on the oil burner.

So as far as the design is concerned, the facelifted model will be getting some cosmetic changes, which will include revised front and rear bumpers, more aggressive hood lines, new fog lamp housings, and a bigger grille. The car might also feature a bigger set of alloy wheels to match its overall sportiness.

On the safety front, the Swift already comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat anchors as standard. Moreover features like electronic stability control, hill hold assist, a multi-colour 4.2-inch multi-information display, auto-folding ORVMs and cruise control are expected to be seen on the facelifted Swift.

Maruti is likely to introduce the facelifted Swift later this year because currently, India is facing a lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And once launched, the updated hatchback is expected to charge a premium over the current model, which is priced between Rs 5.19 lakh and Rs 8.02 lakh ex-showroom.
