Maruti Suzuki will launch the new Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 in February 2012. The new Swift Dzire or Swift 3.99 will be based on the new Maruti Swift 2011 with improved exteriors, interiors and better tuned suspensions. Apart from the changes which will be equivalent to the upgrades made in the new model of Maruti Swift, the new Dzire or Swift 3.99 will also come with automatic transmission option.

The automatic transmission system to be used in Maruti Swift Dzire 2012 or Swift 3.99 will be same as the Maruti SX4 automatic transmission which is a 4 speed automatic with conventional torque converter system, however, the gear ratios will be adapted to suit the drivability needs of the Maruti Swift Dzire. On the downside, the option of automatic transmission on new Model of Swift Dzire 2012 will only come with the top of the line Zxi Petrol variant only and not with the diesel, just like with the SX4.
The fuel efficiency of the automatic transmission cars is usually around 10 % to 15 % lower than the corresponding manual transmission variants because of lower mechanical efficiency of a torque converter compared to a dry or wet clutch system, so we can expect an mileage of between 12 KMPL to 15 KMPL for the automatic transmission model. More details will emerge around the official launch.
