Maruti Suzuki introduced the Swift hatchback in the Indian market almost 15-years ago. The Maruti Swift has over the years become one of the most popular hatchbacks in the country and is currently in its third-generation iteration.
The Maruti Swift was initially offered with 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine (sourced from Fiat). However, with the new stringent BS6 emission norms being implemented in the country, Maruti Suzuki discontinued the diesel unit altogether.
The current Swift hatchback model is offered with a single-engine option. This comes in the form of an updated version of the 1.2-litre VVT petrol unit. However, according to exclusive reports from gaadiwaadi, the hatchback could soon be powered by a 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine with the brand's SHVS (mild-hybrid) technology.
This is the same engine, which first debuted on the brand's premium hatchback, the Baleno. The 1.2-litre DualJet mild-hybrid powertrain produces 89bhp at 6000rpm and 113Nm of peak torque at 4400rpm.
In comparison, the current 1.2-litre VVT petrol engine powering the Maruti Swift produces 82bhp and 113Nm of peak torque. The DualJet engine is not only more powerful than the current 1.2-litre unit but with the SHVS technology, it is also expected to be more frugal as well.
Talking about the hatchback, the Maruti Swift received its last major update at the 2018 Auto Expo. The third-generation model brought with it a completely new design and styling, along with a host of new elements, features and equipment; both inside and out.
Maruti Suzuki currently offers the Swift hatchback in a range of seven variants: LXi, VXi, VXi AMT, ZXi, ZXi AMT, ZXi+ and ZXi+ AMT. Prices for the hatchback in the Indian market start from Rs 5.19 lakh and go up all the way to Rs 8.02 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
Thoughts About The Maruti Suzuki Swift With Petrol-Hybrid Technology
The Maruti Suzuki Swift With the SHVS technology is expected to arrive in India in the coming months. Once introduced it will be the first time, Maruti would have introduced hybrid tech on the hatchback in the Indian market. The hatchback will continue to rival the Ford Figo, Tata Tiago and the likes, although we could see a slight increase in prices.
