The new Maruti Swift will launch in the Indian marketplace in the forthcoming weeks. Slated to be one of the biggest launches this year, the India-spec Swift was viewed for the very first time, lately. A quick check with multiple dealers reveals that some of these have unofficially started accepting reservations for the new model. Maruti is to announce the details for your new Swift for India.

Traders tell us that clients whose bookings have been accepted for the outgoing car will get the new model mechanically if shares of the older car are depleted — that is the case at many places. A small number of dealers also have started to accept new bookings for the car. Booking amounts vary between places because there’s absolutely no official statement.

The new Swift will continue to be powered with the present crop of engines, a 1.2-litre gas and the 1.3-litre petrol. However, Maruti will provide automatic gearbox variants also — such as using the newest Dzire. The new version is developed on precisely the exact same stage as Baleno, albeit approximately 10-15 percent lighter. The new Swift’s cottage is likely to last with all-black theme, such as the outgoing model. We anticipate fully-loaded versions to also find more equipment — such as a touchscreen infotainment program with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.

Key rivals to the brand new Swift comprise the Hyundai Grand i10 and the Ford Figo. The latter can be expected to get a mid-cycle update in the coming months.
