The Swift has been one of the most successful products for Maruti Suzuki in India till date. The hatchback and its sedan derivative have consistently sold in huge numbers month after month. For 2017, Suzuki is developing an all-new model that will replace the current Swift internationally, as well as in India. We’ve compiled numerous spy shots, leaked images and information related to the New Maruti Swift 2017 and you can read all about it here.
New Maruti Swift 2017 Launch in India
|Model Name||Expected Launch Date|
|2017 Maruti Swift India Launch||October-November 2017|
Suzuki will unveil the production-spec Swift in March 2017. We expect India to get the new Swift in the second half of 2016. There have been reports suggesting 2017 Maruti Dzire launch will take place before that of the new Swift. Maruti is yet to confirm the same, however. India is a very important market for Suzuki and products like the Swift account for a huge chunk of the total sales. Therefore, we expect Maruti to bring the new Swift to India as soon as possible.

Prices will remain more or less the same as the current model. In fact, introductory prices of the new Swift could be as low as Rs. 4.5 lakhs. Also, it is highly likely the new Swift will get automatic transmission options as well. 2017 Maruti Swift Petrol automatic could cost around Rs. 7 lakhs. Like the current Dzire, Diesel Swift could get an optional 5-speed AMT, which will cost roughly Rs. 8 lakhs.

Please note the figures mentioned in the table above are estimated and based on our expectations. Actual figures may vary. New 2017 Maruti Swift will get the same engines as the current car. Which means it will get a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel. Power and torque figures are likely to remain more or less the same. Since the Swift will be based on a new platform, it will be lighter than the current car, which will help boost fuel efficiency.
New Maruti Swift 2017 Mileage
|1.2 L Petrol||1.3 L Diesel|
|City||15-16 KMPL||18-19 KMPL|
|Highway||20 KMPL||23-24 KMPL|
|ARAI Certified||21-22 KMPL||27-28 KMPL|
New Swift will be more fuel efficient than the current model. Diesel variants of the 2017 Swift could benefit from Maruti’s mild hybrid tech similar to what we have seen in the Ciaz SHVS. This will help boost fuel efficiency to about 27-28 KMPL. It could even touch the 30 KMPL mark.

New Maruti Swift 2017 Exterior Design
Much of the exterior design of the upcoming 2017 Maruti Swift has already been made public thanks to leaked images. It retains the sporty character of the current model. The new car gets a more prominent nose with a single piece grille and large fog lamp enclosures. Like the Vitara Brezza, the Swift also gets a floating roof effect and black A & B Pillars. Another noticeable design trait is the C-Pillar mounted rear door handle. The rear of the next generation Swift looks less bulbous. It gets broader tail lamps and a neat little spoiler integrated into the roof. The upcoming car from Maruti Suzuki will also feature new alloys wheels, new wing mirrors and more.
New Maruti Swift 2017 Interior Design
Images here show a very modern interior design. There are quite a few circular elements seen here such as the AC vents, auto aircon setup, steering wheel design, etc. There’s a new flat-bottomed steering wheel that can be seen in the pictures. The 2017 Maruti Swift will feature a hooded instrument cluster that could possibly get multiple colour modes. Images here depict sporty red highlights for the cabin, but our guess is that they will only make it to the sportier Swift RS variants.
New Maruti Swift 2017 Engine and Transmission
MSIL has a habit of utilising the same engines for most of its products. The 2017 Maruti Swift will continue with the current set of 1.2 Petrol and 1.3 Diesel engines. Both will employ a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. Expect power outputs to remain similar to the current Swift’s. Petrol variants, however, could get an automatic transmission option in the form of a CVT. Whereas the Diesel variants could get a 5-speed AMT. Also, Maruti might be looking at introducing more SHVS models and the new Swift could be one of them. As always, fuel efficiency figures will be among the highest in the segment. Mild Hybrid tech could help 2017 Swift Diesel touch the 30 KMPL mark!
