Noticeable Features

While the feature list of the newly launched Maruti Suzuki Swift S-CNG remains identical to the conventional variants of the Swift hatchback, the CNG variant of the hatchback comes with its own set of unique features such as dual independent Electronic Control Units (ECU) and an intelligent injection system to provide optimum air-fuel ratio. Thanks to such a system, it provides good performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency.

Apart from that, Maruti Suzuki has used high-quality stainless steel pipes and integrated wiring harness to avoid rusting and short circuit, thus improving overall safety. In addition to these features, Maruti Suzuki has installed a microswitch that does not let the engine start while refilling the CNG.

Variants & Price

The newly launched Maruti Suzuki S-CNG is available in just two variants - VXi, and ZXi. This means the CNG version of the Maruti Suzuki Swift is not available on the base LXi variant. As a result, the starting price is on the higher side, but considering the overall savings, the additional premium over the standard variant is a lot more worth than the price difference.
