The Maruti Suzuki Swift is now in its 4th generation. It was recently shown at the Japan Mobility Show. The design has evolved, but it still looks like a Swift. It keeps its sporty and youthful style. The car was also revealed at the 2023 Japan Motor Show and was seen testing in India for the first time.
The Swift is more than just a car; it’s a strong emotion for many people. It has been popular for nearly 2 decades. It became famous for its design inspired by the Mini Cooper, smart interior, and good ride and handling. These qualities are likely to continue with the 4th generation model.
Just like the 3rd generation model, the 4th gen Swift won’t have a 2-door short version for global models. The test mules for the 4th gen Swift were spotted in India. These test cars have the same changes as the new Swift Suzuki showed at the Tokyo Motor Show, now called the Japan Mobility Show.
The new Swift has a different front design with a flatter bonnet, an angrier grille, and a sportier bumper. The LED headlights have a new design with interesting LED daytime running lights. The lower bumper no longer has fog lights and features a silver element that Maruti will call a faux skid plate.
From the side, there aren’t many changes, except for new wheels and rear door handles in their usual position. The overall shape is similar to the 3rd gen Swift. The rear has new LED tail lights, a different tailgate, and a sportier rear bumper.
Inside, the Swift has always been known for its good interior. The 4th gen model is similar to the current one but with some small updates. There is a slightly different dashboard and center console. The center air vents and dashboard design are new. The Swift now has a 9-inch infotainment screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Indian version might not have a head-up display like the Baleno.
The new 3-cylinder 1.2L NA petrol engine with a 48V self-charging hybrid is expected to debut with the 4th gen Maruti Suzuki Swift. It’s rumored to be very fuel-efficient, with lab data suggesting up to 40 km per liter, while real-world figures might be over 25 km per liter. The car might be launched in 2024.
