Join Us

The Maruti Suzuki Swift is a familiar name on Indian roads, renowned for its peppy performance, spacious interiors for a hatchback, and fuel efficiency. Launched in April 2023, the latest iteration retains these qualities while boasting some exciting upgrades. Let’s delve into what the new Swift has to offer.

Thrilling Design and Enhanced Comfort

The new Swift maintains its sporty silhouette but with sharper lines and a more sculpted design. The chrome grille and sleek LED projector headlamps with DRLs lend a contemporary look. Distinctive alloy wheels and a variety of color options, including dual-tone choices, allow for personalization.

Moving inside, the cabin offers improved comfort and a premium feel. The quality of materials has been enhanced, and the redesigned dashboard features a modern infotainment system with the SmartPlay Studio interface. The spacious interiors ensure a comfortable ride for both driver and passengers.

Engine Options and Performance

The 2024 Swift retains the 1.2-liter K-Series engine, available in both petrol and CNG variants. The petrol engine delivers a peppy performance with a choice of a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) gearbox. The CNG option caters to those seeking an eco-friendly and fuel-efficient drive.

While official figures for the 2024 model aren’t available yet, mileage for the previous version ranged from a frugal 30.9 km/kg for CNG to a respectable 22.38 kmpl for petrol (manual transmission).

Technology and Safety Features

The new Swift gets a significant upgrade in the technology department. The SmartPlay Studio infotainment system offers smartphone connectivity, navigation, and a range of entertainment options. Features like automatic climate control, push-button start/stop, and a multi-function steering wheel enhance convenience and driving pleasure.

On the safety front, the 2024 Swift offers dual airbags, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), and seatbelt pre-tensioners with force limiters. While the Global NCAP rating of the previous version was 2 stars, safety improvements might be reflected in an updated rating for the 2024 model.

Variants and Price

The Maruti Suzuki Swift comes in a variety of trims, including LXi, VXi, ZXi, and ZXi+. Each variant offers a different combination of features and transmission options (manual or AMT). The price starts from a competitive ₹ 5.99 lakh for the base variant and goes up to ₹ 9.03 lakh for the top-end model (prices may vary depending on location).
