India-Bound Maruti Suzuki Swift Unveiled at Japan Mobility Show: Modern Design and Enhanced Features

Published on

The highly anticipated fourth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift has made its debut at the 2023 Japanese Mobility Show, offering a fresh design and upgraded technology. Set to hit the Indian market in late 2024, this hatchback will be manufactured entirely within India, serving both domestic and international markets. Competing with popular models like the Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS, Citroen C3, and Tata Tiago, the new Swift is poised to create ripples in the Indian automotive landscape.

Evolutionary Design

The fourth-generation Swift maintains its iconic design while embracing modern updates. The front grille now sports a chrome finish with a distinctive mesh pattern, replacing the previous model’s horizontal bars. The classic silhouette of the Swift’s side profile remains, but it features repositioned second-row door handles and new 16-inch wheel designs. The taillamps retain their signature shape but come with a black border, redesigned layout, and full LED functionality.

Upgraded Cabin and Safety Features

While a complete cabin overhaul was anticipated, Maruti Suzuki chose to enhance existing interior elements. This includes the instrument cluster, steering wheel, buttons, touch surfaces, and center console. The updated interiors boast a redesigned dashboard, air conditioning console, and an all-new 10-inch infotainment system equipped with various connectivity options. The Japanese-spec version of the Swift includes numerous enhancements such as a new operating system for the infotainment system, Level-2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), an all-LED lighting setup, and additional safety features.

Powerful Yet Efficient Engine

The Indian market version of the Swift will likely retain the trusted 1.2-liter K-Series petrol engine capable of producing 90hp and 113Nm of torque. This engine is expected to incorporate mild-hybrid technology and compatibility with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). It will be paired with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed automated manual transmission (AMT). Additionally, Maruti Suzuki’s investments in biogas technology suggest the possibility of offering this alternative in the future.

The fourth-generation Maruti Suzuki Swift aims to set new benchmarks in India’s competitive hatchback segment with its sleek design, advanced features, and reliable performance, making it an exciting prospect for automotive enthusiasts.
