According to the sources, Maruti will start the production of 2017 Maruti swift in October at their Gujrat plant. The starting phase will roll out 10,000 units of the model which will be increased later on. Swift is one of the top selling models of Maruti Suzuki in India and the new model is expected to hit the Indian market in late 2017 or early 2018.
The next-gen Swift was unveiled to the world for the first time in Japan last December and made its European debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. In the European spec model of 2017 Maruti Swift, lots of the new features have been introduced which include LED headlamps with LED DRLs, 16-inch dual tone alloy wheels, this time Suzuki has changed the design of the rear doors and the door handles have now been shifted to C-pillar instead of the traditional positioning of Maruti vehicles, LED taillamps, and a hexagonal grille, which is likely to be seen in the Indian spec Maruti Swift, although for the Indian market the rims are likely to be 15 inches. Inside, top-end models will include a 7-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Automatic climate control, new instrument cluster with coloured MID showing different parameters and a sportier flat bottom steering wheel rocking the steering mounted audio controls. The new 2017 Maruti swift measures 3,840 mm long, 1,695 mm wide and 1,525 mm high, and has a wheelbase of 2,450 mm which is slightly bigger than the on selling the model of swift.
Engine options are expected to continue from the current generation model which have two engine options for the customers which include a 1.2-litre VVT four-cylinder petrol engine producing a power of 83 BHP while the 1.3-litre DDiS four-cylinder diesel engine produces maximum power of 75 BHP. Till now the Indian spec Swift has not been offered with the automatic gearbox ever, but this opinion could be changed with the arrival of 2017 Maruti swift. The same 5-speed AMT automatic gearbox could be used in the swift which is currently being given as the option in Maruti Ignis.
