2017 Maruti Swift vs Old Model Swift – Exterior Design Comparison

There is no denying that the 2017 Maruti Swift’s design has the essence of the original supermini. While the styling is more evolutionary than revolutionary, the 2017 model looks sportier and more premium. The basic silhouette has been carried over from the old model and the DLOs of the two generations are largely similar. However, the 2017 Maruti Swift features many new design elements that help it to look matured and sophisticated. The front of the car sports a gaping hexagonal grille that imparts a sporty character. The bumper features large intakes and a rather discreet splitter. The headlamps look a lot sleeker and the top variant will feature a projector setup and LED DRLs. The 2017 Swift’s front fenders resemble those of the new Baleno.

Akin to the old model Maruti Swift, the 2017 version has blacked-out pillars. However, the 2017 model gets a ‘floating roof’ effect thanks to the black-out portion of the C-pillars. The tail-lights are slightly smaller and the boot-lid less curvaceous but the loading lip could be significantly lower. The rear windscreen seems to have grown in size. Also, the new Swift features C-Pillar mounted rear door handles. Top end variants will get LED tail lamps.

2017 Maruti Swift vs Old Model Swift – Interior Design Comparison

The interior of the 2017 Maruti Swift looks much sportier and more premium. The dashboard looks more upmarket. The rectangular AC vents have been replaced by round ones. The centre console features a Smartplay infotainment system and circular HVAC controls. The steering wheel is new and looks sportier due to the round boss. Another highlight is the twin-pod speedo console that also features a larger, high res Multi-Information Display (MID).

2017 Maruti Swift vs Old Model Swift – Specifications

The Maruti Swift is presently sold with a 1.2 L K-Series Petrol and a 1.3 L DDiS Diesel engine. The Petrol engine displaces 1197cc and features Variable Valve Timing (VVT). Peak power-torque is rated at 84.3 PS-115 Nm. The Diesel engine pumps out 75 PS-190 Nm. The engines come mated to a 5 speed Manual transmission. For India, the 2017 Swift will share the engines with the old model. However, Maruti might offer a 5-speed AMT as an option on both petrol and diesel versions. Also, safely expect the engines to get a new tune for performance and mileage optimization.

New Maruti Swift 2017 Specifications
Engine 1.2-Litre K-Series Petrol; 1.3-Litre DDiS Diesel
Max. Power 87 PS; 78 PS
Peak Torque 115 Nm; 190 Nm
Transmission 5-Speed Manual/CVT; 5-Speed Manual
Kerb Weight  ~ 850 KGs
Fuel Mileage 21 KMPL; 25 KMPL

The new model 2017 Maruti Swift benefits from a light-weight platform, which would ensure a lower kerb weight and hence sprightlier performance and higher fuel mileage. Talking of the fuel mileage, the Diesel Swift 2017 could deliver up to 25 KMPL! Internationally, however, the 2017 Swift will get a 1.4 L Boosterjet petrol engine to replace the old 1.6 L engine. This engine has a max. power-torque output of 136 PS-220 Nm. India could get the smaller 1.0 L Boosterjet Petrol engine that will mark its India debut on the upcoming Baleno RS. India could also get the ingenuously developed 1.5 L Diesel engine at a later stage.

Swift 2017 gets mild hybrid tech for international markets. India-spec new model Swift could also get the SHVS mild hybrid system.
